Touching A Memory

~~PLEASE REBLOG FROM MY TUMBLR: adelelorienne.tumblr.com/post/… Do NOT repost it separately yourself~~

The Eleventh Doctor and Rose Tyler, in shared wonder and disbelief at seeing each other again. Rose slowly realizes that this strange man is still her Doctor, though his face has changed yet again and he is so much older and sadder, lonelier. It has been centuries for him, and he was so certain that he would never see her again. There is both pain and fondness in his eyes as touches her, as though touching a cherished memory.

A companion piece to "In An Endless Dream I Loved You:"

This is so beautiful, no matter what she knows this is him.

This is really beautiful, with the emotion and wonder on their faces, and extremely well executed as well. Gorgeous. Truly. Now I want to read the fanfic that (should) accompany it!

Even though I'm more of an Eleven/River person, I love this idea of him meeting Rose again.  I wish BBC would have done something like that in the 50th Anniversary Special.  Bravo!  Love this piece so much!  You really captured them perfectly!

Look at his face. You can see the sorrow and sadness. You can see how many nights he prayed to see her again. To hold her. He turely looks how he feels for the first time in a long time

Mhm. Agreed.

Anyway, Rose has already got that human version of the 10th Doctor (the one that grew from his handy spare hand). Jeez Rose, one Doctor not good enough!?

:iconeleventhdoctorplz: :iconsaysplz: *mutters* "How can this be possible? I returned her myself... she shouldn't be here... must be a Zagon..."

:iconrosetylerplz: :iconsaysplz: "Doctor? what are you talking about? it's me, it's Rose, your Ro-"

:iconeleventhdoctorplz: :iconsaysplz: *shouts* "You're not her! no matter how much how you've convinced yourself otherwise! I watched Rose disappear again! hell! I've returned her myself to Pete's World!" *approaches Rose, anger, and pain, and sadness, and hope, and even happiness clear in his forest green eyes* "Now, I don't know how you managed to impersonate her in this way, but I suggest you stop, right no-"

*Rose didn't know how she could convince this man, who seemed like her Doctor, but older, and sadder, and lonelier, despite the brown haired woman standing in the corner, staring in confusion at the pink-yellow human and the Last Time Lord, so she did what she would do with her Doctors, nine and ten, she kissed him*

Aww, The Doctor's in denial. He wants to believe it's Rose but he can't. :tears:

Had me in tears as I read the description. I actually love it. I don't Ship these two as much as 10 and Rose but seeing this, I feel like old feelings would for sure come up if they ever saw each other again.
