( doctor who - rose & the doctor - hoppipolla )  
a rose & the doctor mix

What if it had all never happened?

What if Rose had stayed an ordinary girl and he was just a doctor? What if it had only been a telephone booth on the corner of their street? What if they had never traveled across galaxies and voids, but instead stayed home? What if she fixed him tea and he brought home chips - doesn't matter which universe, they're still her favorite - and they had to get a mortgage, together? What if the oncoming storm was on the daily weather and the bad wolf was just a stray dog that got caught in the cat flap when she sneaked it food? And what if the stars still wrote their destiny the same, that they weren't meant to be together forever, but they wouldn't have missed it for the world?

(Still Rose. Still Doctor. Albeit domestic. Exploring less of the world and more of each other. Happy at times yet not an altogether happy ending. Allusions to time and traveling hidden here and there. Hoppipolla is Icelandic for "jumping into puddles" which, to me, could not describe Rose and the Doctor better.)

01 | well…all right albert hammond jr.
Those foolish kids can't be ready
For the love that comes their way ;
Well, all right, well all right
We'll live and love with all our might
Well, all right, well all right
Our lifetime love will be all right

02 | your song ellie goulding
It's a little bit funny this feeling inside
I'm not one of those who can easily hide ;
How wonderful life is now you're in the world.

03 | time flies lykke li
I get weak, I get weary, I miss sleep, I get moody
I'm in thoughts, I write songs, I'm in love, I walk on ;
Time will fly, upon my baby's back

04 | she's always a woman billy joel
Oh, she takes care of herself
She can wait if she wants, she's ahead of her time ;
But she'll bring out the best and the worst you can be
Blame it all on yourself 'cause she's always a woman to me

05 | my coco stellastarr
Sneak into my empty bed
And educate me, my co-co-co ;
And when you said that nothing's wrong
I believed you, my co-co-co

06 | i'm gonna be (500 miles) the proclaimers
When I wake up well I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man who wakes up next to you ;
And if I grow old well I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man who's growing old with you ;
But I would walk 500 miles and I would walk 500 more
Just to be the man who'd walk a 1,000 miles to fall down at your door

07 | just like a woman bob dylan
And your long-time curse hurts
But what's worse is this pain in here
I can't stay in here, ain't it clear ;
She takes just like a woman (yes she does)
She makes love just like a woman (yes she does)
And she aches just like a woman but she breaks just like a little girl

08 | seven wonders fleetwood mac
So long ago, certain place, certain time
You touched my hand ;
But if our paths never cross, well you know I'm sorry

09 | hounds of love kate bush
He let me take him in my hands
His little heart, it beat so fast ;
I don't know what's good for me
I need love, love, love, love, yeah (your love)

10 | unattainable little joy
I can't coerce you into this one, jealousy lay all your spells to bed
I'll choose unloved instead ;
Oh, if you find yourself amongst the lonely ones
I'll be waiting here with open arms

11 | 3 am matchbox twenty
She says it's all gonna end and it might as well be my fault
And she only sleeps when it's raining
And she screams and her voice is straining ;
She thinks that happiness is a mat that sits on her doorway
But outside it's stopped raining

12 | hoppipolla vitamin string quartet
( Instrumental )

I just can't make a proper mix, can I? It's either a ridiculously long ode or it's borderline AU (if not completely over the line and running past it at 90 miles per hour). It's just because I live in a world where no matter the situation, Rose and the Doctor are in unabashed love and I'd like to take the time to explore all the situations. Also, do other people not live in that world? I don't think I want to meet them. This was made when I was supposed to be doing my math homework and for mixedvolume (which you should go join. like right now. do it.) Here's hoping this counts for the sci-fi/fantasy challenge. Even if the comm runners are vehement Rose/Doctor shippers, it would be nice if one day I could just follow the rules! Today is, of course, not that day. Hope you enjoy and the like.

Oh and hee we both used that Lykke Li song! XD Great minds!

Thank you very much! High praise indeed, coming from you.

This looks like a wonderful mix! I'm definitely going to enjoy this. Thanks for uploading!
Also note that I, too, live in a world where I explore AUs and such for my pairings. (Also also, since you mentioned this as being something of an AU-- are there fics for this? The idea you laid out for the Doctor and Rose sounds fantastic.)
na na na na na na na na NAmistrusts on August 28th, 2011 01:34 am (UTC)
No problem, thank you!
My fandom mind is only about 37% canon, I'm sure (it comes with the territory of shipping non-canon ships or ships that are doomed to never leave the harbor) so this mix was inevitable.

As far as I know, no. Since I am the first person to explore this, and I have not written any fics. I know people write Ten II/Rose but that's not exactly the same as my idea.
thecrazyalaskan: Pandathecrazyalaskan on August 28th, 2011 04:16 am (UTC)
You're very welcome!
My mind works like that, too-- I naturally think of AUs, and have a ton of non-canon ships.

Aw man. Oh well, couldn't hurt asking. Ten II? I really need to study up on my Tenth Doctor. >>;

I love this XD (Particularly Scottish/Tennant pride at The Proclaimers being added). Snagging!

Thanks ever so much! Yeah, I couldn't help but include that because of the video of David singing it and loving them so much. And also, it really fits ridiculously well with how I see Doctor re: Rose.

Hnngh. This is amazing. I love this concept and your song choices and askl;'sdlkl;kl.

Definitely downloading when I get home from work tonight.

Why thank you! I was hoping it wouldn't be too ~weird (although what is too weird on the internet) or conceptual or hard to imagine, but it's been well-received. Yay!
That's what she said.scatterbrain___ on August 27th, 2011 07:03 am (UTC)
I love this!!!! Thank you!

Oh my goodness...this looks phenomenal. And such a unique ideas as well! I loved the little into/summary thing you wrote at the beginning. Very creative.

Also, I've loved the song "500 Miles" ever since I first heard it when I was little. But ever since I saw that video of David Tennant singing it with the Pretenders on YouTube, THAT'S ALL I CAN PICTURE WHEN I HEAR THIS!! So, I guess it's fitting...right? Hahaha.

In any case; looks great; will def give it a listen; let you know! :D
