Story Summary: Even the most passionate and harmonious of human marriages have a natural shelf life reckoned in decades. There’s a reason that the most poignant part of any love story is the ending. A successful partnership lasting centuries, while perhaps not unheard-of among some species, differs in several key ways from the human unions that Rose Tyler had grown up observing. Sometimes a little couples therapy is required.

Gioia’s Rec:
I love this picture of what life would be like a few hundred (or more) years down the road, if Rose really were immortal.  So many of my favorite fics depict the happily-ever-after realization, but few describe what it would be like, the reality of living together for centuries on end.  This is a happy series, very shipper-friendly, but it also approaches the topic with an honesty which I, as an old, married woman, can appreciate.  Love is a decision, after all.  This is the story of how Rose and the Doctor decide over and over again, in all the tiny little ways and in all the big grand gestures, that they want to be together forever.

About Gioia

I'm a wife and mother and, when not tied up with responsibilities, I read non-stop. I love to share my favorite stories with others, thus the existence of my blog.
