Crossing the Veil (4/4)

Title: Crossing the Veil
Fandom: Doctor Who
Characters: Ten, Jack, Martha, Donna, Rose
Word Count: 836
Rating: G (I believe)
Spoilers: Forgot to mention before but casting for TW2 and DW4. References to "Army of Ghosts/Doomsday" and "The Sound of Drums/Last of the Time Lords".
Notes: This was sparked by a challenge over at dwfiction but when the idea came to me, I didn't have the list of criteria in front of me so it don't quite fit. The idea

wouldn't die and so here it is. In order to have it done for Halloween, I'm posting it as I get it typed. I've only written Jack before so I apologize if the characters are a bit off. This bit

was written at one shot so I didn't have time to go over it like I usually do. This is the last part as it stands though I may create an epilogue.
Disclaimer The characters all belong to the BBC.

Crossposted about. Again, my apologies.

Rose Tyler walked through the halls of Torchwood One on what she called Earth Two. It had been alsmost two years since she had to start her new life here but at least she wasn't alone.

She had Mum, Mickey, Pete and Jake, the four people who knew the truth. When she needed them, they would listen to her reminscings of her time with the Doctor and their travels.

The times she found herself doing that were growing fewer and farther between but she hadn't forgotten him completely. She never could.

It was at times when things were slow she found herself up in what she called the breach room. She knew she should move on, forget what happened here, but she couldn't help it. She

still felt that her world, her Doctor, was just on the other side of that wall. Her mobile rang and she switched it off. It was probably just Mickey reminding her of the Halloween party


The wall in front of her seemed to flicker and ripple and she couldn't help but reach out and touch it with her fingers. She didn't expect her hand to go through it. She knew she should call

for backup. She knew she should let someone know where she was and what she was doing. She knew and she didn't care. She stepped through the wall. When her eyes adjusted to

the bright light,she saw something she thought she'd never see again. "Doctor?" She took a hesitant step. He smiled. "Doctor!" She ran and jumped into his outstretched arms.

"Can I get some of that?"

"Jack!" She released the Doctor and rushed Jack, crushing him in a huge bear hug. He laughed and she nearly melted again.

She stepped back and looked at the two men she loved unconditionally knowing they felt that same. They would give their lives for each other--and had. It was then she noticed the two

women in the doorway. Are they all travelling together? That could be a little maddening. She walked up to them and held out her hand. "Hi, I'm Rose Tyler."

The black woman smiled a little slowly. "Martha Jones. It's a bit of a shock meeting you."

"It's a bit of a shock being here." She turned to the redhead. "And you are?"

"Donna Noble. No wonder he was a mess when I met him."


"He's just lost you, and, well, it's like he had a deathwish or something. If I hadn't yelled at him, he would've let it happen."

Rose turned to look at the Doctor who was just watching her, a goofy smile on his face.

"He mentioned your name all the time when I started travelling with him," Martha said. "It wasn't easy following you."

"He said we'd never be able to see each other again after that last goodbye. What happened?"

"My idea," said Jack. "I worked out that it might be possible to open the breach if only temporarily. Martha contacted the Doctor and here we are."

"How long is 'temporarily'?"

The Doctor looked at a dial on one of the cobbled-together bits of machinery. "About another 15 minutes." He looked at her with those brown eyes, asking her without saying a word.

Oh, how she wanted to be with him again, to travel the universe and wander through time. "I can't," she answered, her heart breaking again. "I can't leave Mum again, expecially when I

won't be able to get back. I've a new life, Doctor. I like my job and my friends." She wiped her eyes. This is almost as hard as last time. "At least I know you have people to

look after you." Rose reached up and gave him a tender kiss on the lips. "I love you," she whispered.

He grabbed her in a tight hug like he didn't want her to walk away. "I love you too, Rose Tyler," he said just for her.

He released her and Jack then grabbed her, swinging her about. "I'll miss you." He set her down. "Hey, you don't have one of me in your world, do you?"

She laughed. "If so, I haven't met him yet."

"He's probably just working his way across the planet."

"First Cybermen and now a possible Jack Harkness? That world doesn't stand a chance."

Rose walked backwards to the wall so she could watch them for as long as possible. Before long she was back in her own world staring at a white wall.


"In here Mickey!"

"I was just here," he said as he entered the room. "It was empty."

"You must have missed me behind a piece of furniture."

"Yeah, like what? Look around."

Rose saw there was nothing that would have hidden her from sight.

"So where were you?"

"Home." She looked him in the face. "I mean home. I was back at our Canarty Wharf with the Doctor and Jack."


"C'mon, Mickey. It's Halloween. Anything's possible." She took him by the arm and led him out of the room. "Don't we have a party to go to?"

Lovely idea and some great writing. I especially loved the the POV bits from Donna and Martha. But I felt like the story was a bit of an anti-climax. So much of it was spent building up Rose's return and when she does, it's a few sparse paragraphs of a reunion. Still a great fic though.

It was a bit rushed and not one of my better efforts but I'm glad you liked it.
