Donna liked her new employer.  Jo Jones, the widow of a scientist, was writing a memoir of their travels.  Donna sorted notes and photos, and typed umpteen drafts.  Jo even consulted her on wording.

Donna only heard Jo lose her temper once, during a phone call.  "I know how to keep secrets, Captain.  Our mutual friend trusts me, even if you don't, so sod off."

They celebrated the finished manuscript with champagne, and discussed a possible children's version.  "Jo, do you miss travelling?"

"I loved it, but coming home has its own joys."

Donna raised her glass.  "To new beginnings."


Prompt: Donna Noble, Jo Grant, coming home.

LOL. I can see an older, wiser and more worldly Jo telling Jack to sod off.

I must confess that I enjoyed writing that part. *grins*

I love Jack, I really do, but I know what his end of the conversation sounded like. It started with "What the hell did you think you were doing--" and went downhill from there.

That's lovely! And a little bit sad.

Thank you. I think any story with post-JE Donna will be a little sad, unless it's crack or a fixit story. But I meant this one to be mostly optimistic.

That's wonderful :) And I think the Doctor would be pleased that they're together.

Thank you. Yes, I think he'd be glad that Donna had someone trustworthy to watch over her, and to give her fulfilling work.
