Recced because: Many of [livejournal.com profile] wave_of_sorrow’s stories play with timelines in a way that  I love.  I chose this one to rec because I appreciate it on both a technical and emotional level. [livejournal.com profile] wave_of_sorrow pulled off writing this in a format with many extremely short, one-sentence paragraphs. It’s a format that can often drive me batty because some writers use it to scream "Look! Everything I'm writing is Important!" That wasn’t the case here, because the author wrote with emotional heft as well as economy. The story itself threatened to choke me up at times, with what  I consider a spot on illustration of the relative youth of both the Doctor and River in this situation. And of course River and Nine, two damaged souls, connect in fascinating ways. There was more than one spot where the tears threatened to come, despite the story's brevity.

A taste:
