martha jones appreciation daymartha jones, you're a star!
Well, I always said if something struck me the right way that I’d write more. This was inspired by the Tennant ALS Ice Bucket Fic Challenge. Chronologically, it takes place in August of 2014, shortly after John and Rose’s third wedding anniversary, about nine months after all but the last paragraph of One-Shot #6 (yes, the timing is coincidental).
The main story, Evolution of a Scandal, is available in AO3 flavor.
Martha Jones, you saved the world.
I’m horrible with head canons but I’ll give it a shot.
When Rose first came on board the Doctor was very closed off and unwilling to talk about even the most trivial things concerning himself. Rose became frustrated with the unhelpful and flippant answers the Doctor always gave her so she decided to try a new tactic. She introduces board games into their nightly routine. First she starts off with innocent ones like Jenga, Connect 4 and even Candy Land. As the Doctor gets comfortable with this new nightly activity she starts to introduce getting-to-know-you games like Cranium Whoonu. Before he knows it the Doctor is giving away all sorts of information because of these games and he and Rose are becoming intimately closer. Rose decides to make the games less about the brain and more about the body and sets up Twister one night. The Doctor can’t stand being that close to Rose and gives up that game quickly. After Twister night the sexual tension is at an all time high and Rose can no longer stand it. She figures that board games worked once so board games will work again. Things finally take a turn for the better when the Doctor wins the Consenting Adults board game. ;)
I don’t think that’s really a head cannon but it amuses me to picture it.
A boy and his box, off to see the universe
