The Scientist - There is only one photograph left from their wedding- all the others, she told him, were lost when they moved from the apartment.

Living This Life Day After Day - After losing the TARDIS, the Doctor and Rose must make a life for themselves on the slow path. AU from the middle of The Satan Pit.

Young Enough - His Lolita of the stars.
A million minus one - He told her there were a million ways to kiss in the universe.
Take the Next Step - They get married in Las Vegas, 1974, as drunk as you can get and with the Doctor singing loudly like he had that time in France (or was it the fifty-first century? It all gets confusing after so much vodka. The priest wears a silver, tinfoil covered flat hat, and he says it was in preparation from when the aliens would come and pick him up.
This House Is Not For Sale - The house was smallish, yellow, and appeared to stand at a slight tilt.

Symmetry - The Doctor reveals why he loves the human body so much, complete with his trademark ‘practical’ demonstrations.
The Rules - What if he had nothing, would he risk everything? Set post-Doomsday, kind of.

Zombie Pumpkins from Outer Space - Well, what else do you do at a drive-in?
Awkward - A missing scene that takes place after the Tardis is lost in The Impossible Planet but before the Doctor goes down to the Beast’s pit.

A Universe of Possibility - As a storm approaches, the Doctor muses on his relationship with Rose.
Of Human Emotions - They identify us, they define us, they can change us; emotions have a power that can affect everyone, from nineteen-year-old girls to all-powerful Time Lords.

Miss Tyler’s Gentleman Correspondent - Just a silly Regency romance.
The Floating Bridge of Dreams - The Doctor and Rose in Heian-era Japan. Wooing and demonic possession ensue.

Love is the beauty of the soul - She raises him from slumber, like a demon, veiled by the dark side of the midnight sky.
It’s never a farewell - A girl like this he’s never known, never lost so completely and utterly as he does now, with only the opening of his eyes.
Unexpected - The hands cupping the back of her head were firm but gentle, allowing freedom yet restraining excess movement. They moved slowly through her hair, long fingers tangling with blonde strands, while keeping firm the best angle for maximum effect.
Almost Enough - They lie tangled together, afterwards, heat from their bodies conspiring with heat from the sun overhead to make them sleepy and sticky and slow.

Star-gazing - Rose misses her family in the parallel universe. The Doctor helps give her a connection, of sorts.

Exposed - “We’re both adults – consenting adults, I might add. I definitely consented and I’m pretty certain Rose consented – in fact, you’d have probably heard her consenting if you really were standing outside the room a few minutes ago.”
Survivor - “What happened here?” she asks, stumbling over debris in her rush to catch up to him. He doesn’t look at her, eyes fixed forward as he marches onwards. “There was a war.”

Unforgettable - He sees her face everywhere.
Bad Wolf Bay - “You look older,” she finally says, somewhere around eight, “got more of those little wrinkles around your eyes.”

Love’s Labour Lost - “I think it’s-” Rose breaks off her sentence with a groan. She bends over, clutching her stomach. “Yeah, it’s definitely time.”
69 Ways Regeneration Can Go Wrong - His new hands long to do new things, new lips wait to speak new words, a new tongue waiting to taste and devour. (And yes, he concedes, he probably has a bit of an oral fixation this time around.)
Quite Often, I Dream - I dream I’m this… Adventurer. This… daredevil, a madman. ‘The Doctor’, I’m called. -~- She’s just an invention. This character. Rose, I call her. -~- Seems to disappear later on.
Imagination - He sees her sometimes, dancing on the periphery of his vision, and wishes - oh how he wishes - he could pretend it was more than just his imagination.

It’s a new life (and I’m feeling good) - In the days between Christmas and New Years the Doctor and Rose begin to re-learn each other and in the meantime, they discover that his new body seems to have several surprising new abilities including…re-plastering walls?
