Touching A Memory by Saimain Touching A Memory by Saimain

~~PLEASE REBLOG FROM MY TUMBLR:… 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:"

Touching A Memory by Saimain A wonderful fan art featuring the Doctor and his companion in a rather touching moment, I love the use of water color painted over the fine pencil line art. This artwork is absolutely beautiful. ( Suggested by Wildphoenix22 and Featured by Ry-Spirit )

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:
