Disclaimer: The sandbox belongs to RTD and the BBC. I'm just playing here, in the corner, making little sand-TARDISes. Not making any money, not asserting any claims.
A/N: This is a bidding incentive fic, written for the September Support Stacie Auction. The Root Beer Bidding Consortium gave me the prompt: Nine/Rose/Jack, faith.


"Doctor! Rose! You okay down there?"

"We're fine. Just bruises."

"I can't move this tree. I'm going for help."

"We'll wait."

"Might be waitin' a long time. Captain Slick was holdin' the BloodStar. Fifty carats of Denebian ruby is a fair temptation."

"Jack wouldn't."

"I'm jus' sayin--"

"You're wrong."

****

"How long?"

"Four hours, twenty minutes."

"He'll be back..."

"Rose, try to sleep."

"He will!"

***

"Took you long enough, Captain."

"You thought I ran out on you."

"At first, yeah."

"What changed your mind?"

"Rose. She had faith in you... an' I had faith in her. Guess we were both right."

Thanks. Dialogue is my favorite part of writing, and it seemed that this would work well as dialogue-only.

See, Nine can learn!


"Rose. She had faith in you... an' I had faith in her. Guess we were both right."


And this fits perfectly with I believe in her! from S2 :) Lovely work, as always!

Oh course he can -- and clearly he did, considering the change in attitude between TDD and Boom Town.

Thank you!

How perfectly Rose. And it says something about the Doctor's changing perceptions of his companions, too.

*nods* Rose is usually looking on the positive side of people. The Doctor is much more aware of flaws and weaknesses.
