Fic Update  
Well, I think I have managed to figure out what I am doing for my Ninth Doctor series.

It will take place after "Father's Day".  The Doctor can't accept what Rose did and is afraid of what she can do, so he leaves her at home with Jackie - though with resistance from Rose's part (a plot point later on).

Now my biggest problem is deciding what my original companion is going to look like.  I like to have a visual to work with.

Right now, I'm deciding between a companion with brunette hair or with blonde hair.  I like both hair colors; but I can't decide which one to use.

Oh, well.  Any suggestions?

Well, how long is between Nine sending Rose back home and meeting this new companion? If it's soon after, seeing a girl with blonde hair might remind him too much of Rose for his peace of mind. If it's later, then it might not be a very strong factor.

You've reminded me about the fic I'm working on where Nine takes Rose back home in the aftermath of Father's Day, albeit temporarily so that Rose can heal emotionally with her Mum, and Nine can have some space to sort things out in his head over what she did (and worry about whether she'd want to still travel with him in the aftermath).

While Rose is with Jackie, Nine meets a post - TRB/pre - PoC Donna Noble. ;-)

I really need to upload my Nine/Donna icon one of these days.

About a year for him - he is a time traveler - while only a month or two here on earth. Though I am thinking about him just leaving her behind permanently - that's still in the planning stage though (I'm not planning on doing the whole "Bad Wolf" thing). I may have her come back for guest stints.

I think I spotted that story once. And I think I read it. Pretty good I thought.

In my canon "Bad Wolf" isn't Rose anyway... can't be. Since when do humans have "time sensitivities?" No... Bad Wolf was and always will be the TARDIS :P So, I fully concur with you skipping the whole Bad Wolf thing.

I would suggest a light brown hair color. Somewhere between Blond and Brown. Course... if you went brown, there could be MORE reasons why Ten ended up 'sorta brown' rather than ginger ;)

I was thinking of a light brown also. I think that I found a close enough pic of what the character is going to look like - though she will have curly hair.

I agree - "Bad Wolf" isn't Rose. It's the TARDIS.

I got the first three episodes planned but not written - probably will dabble with them until my major projects are over and then jump into them. I'm also writing one or two "one-shots" between the episodes to explore life on the TARDIS. Should be interesting.

Nothing wrong with curly hair :)

I have super curly hair. Bernadette Peters has super curly hair... curly hair is "ginger" for the common man :P

Sounds good. I like Nine/Rose but IF there was a point where Nine might have left Rose at home permanently it would have probably been in the aftermath of Father's Day where there were so many emotions in the aftermath of that.

And, er, I haven't started posting the story yet. Still working on it.

Emotions are part of the reason (or the main - haven't quite nailed it down yet). Some will be based on how I view Rose as a whole, since I have issues with her changing personality.

But I respect Rose fans and have found ways to avoided upsetting them. So stay tuned!

I thought you did. Maybe someone else had the same thought years ago. Man, I wish I can remember where it was I read it at...
