I really enjoy fics that deal with a later Doctor (eg, Eleven or Twelve) meeting Rose and his clone again. Specifically with him relating to the clone in a meaningful way, recalling that - much like Jenny - he's as close to family as he has left.Mending Fences
- With the return of Gallifray, the way between dimensions opens again and the Twelfth Doctor is reluctantly drawn back to help Rose and his clone.
This is set after the Husbands of River Song. It's the perfect time frame to have them meet, as the Doctor is a lot older and wiser, and aware of his own flaws. Whereas Ten or Eleven (or even Twelve prior to losing Clara) would have brushed off criticism, this one is able to take it on board. It's a story written mostly in absence, with the Doctor investigating his double's disappearence. But there's a regretful longing as he learns about the man he left behind.
(Incomplete, but still being updated.)The Trial of Ten
by Gentle Hobbit
- When the Metacrisis Doctor returns with Rose from the other universe, he is captured and put on trial for various crimes, including genocide.
This is set during the Eleventh Doctor's run, just after Series 5. This deals with a number of interesting subjects, like the medical problems associated with being a Metacrisis and the legal status of someone who shares your memories and identity. Eleven is in fine form as are Rose and TenII, though Amy and Rory have been pushed into the background somewhat.
(Complete, with sequels.)Marked
- The Doctor discovers another difference between him and his duplicate: a tattoo.
Set between saving Earth from the Daleks and dropping off Rose's family in Pete's world, this is more bittersweet than the others. A quick one-shot that investigates the Doctor's ambiguous feelings on his doppleganger.
(Complete)What Doesn't Happen
- Five years after leaving Rose and the metacrisis in Bad Wolf Bay, the Doctor finds a phonebox floating in space.
This is probably my favourite, which is why it's such a damn shame that it's incomplete. You may need to read Stardust Girl
to understand what the metacrisis is running from but be warned; it's disturbing. Unlike most stories of this nature, the Doctor doesn't have to struggle to accept his clone; there's a heartwarmingly instant connection between the two Time Lords.
