you get the first part of a five and one doctor who ten/rose fic i started and never finished! it’s five things the doctor hates about being human, and one thing he loves. part one is, as you can probably tell, Getting Sick.
As it turns out, Time Lords are immune to rhinoviruses, influenza viruses, and the varicella zoster viruses. The Tylers discover this because conversely, Time Lords who have recently been turned human are not immune to any of these things. The first few times he gets head colds and chest colds aren’t actually all that bad. He’s just as active as ever, and really, if it weren’t for the sneezing and coughing, you couldn’t even tell he was ill at all.
Even his first bout of flu doesn’t keep him down for long, and all of the new sensations—unpleasant though they may be—are utterly fascinating to him. Two weeks after Tony starts nursery, however, he carries home that ubiquitous childhood disease: Chicken pox.
“Rooooose!” He wails from his bed.
“Don’t you dare scratch at it!” She retorts from downstairs.
“But Rose, it itches!”

A pointed silence falls.
“Were you already scratching them?!”
“Of course not. Don’t be absurd, Rose.”
