Story: Vanity
Author: Wishingstar
Rating: All Ages
Word Count:  414
Characters/Pairings: Twelve, Saibra, Jack Harkness
Author's Summary: "Could you trust someone who looked back at you out of your own eyes?" Well, that depends on who you are.


Recced Because:

Series 8 had a lot of great guest characters – Journey Blue, Robin Hood, Psi, Saibra, Captain Lundvik, Rigsy…

There doesn't seem to be a huge amount of fic up for any of these characters yet, perhaps because of how little time has passed since the airing of Death in Heaven. So, imagine how delighted I was to uncover this gem about Saibra.

There are no heists in this fic, but the emotional impact of Saibra and the Doctor's brief reunion has stayed with me. Saibra learns to accept herself and find joy. The Doctor misunderstands her motives and runs away from the possibility of happiness. It's such a clear, painful, and oddly funny summation of Twelve's character, and it may be my favourite fic yet published for this era.
