Bonsoir, Calufrax! [livejournal.com profile] doctorxdonna here (RoseByAnyOtherName on Teaspoon), I'm another one who encountered the Doctor through new Who, but I've been loving 'getting to know' him and his past though through the 1-8 stories that crop up here on Calufrax. I really and truly did mean to get to this recc yesterday, but I'm a retail manager and spent most of my time rocking back and forth in disbelief that I survived Black Friday weekend. Now I'm still riding the leftover high from the 50th Anniversary special, so I bring you this little gem from an author who'd never been recced here before. Enjoy!

Story: 5 Minutes Before the Wedding
Author: naiad8
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 715
Author's Summary: A conversation between the Doctor and the woman he's about to marry. She has her reasons.
Characters/Pairings: 10th Doctor and Queen Elizabeth I
Warnings: None

Recced because: How I wish the anniversary had played out a little more like naiad8's version of the story. History tends to speak of Queen Elizabeth I as a brilliant, pragmatic, and analytical woman, and I was a little sad to see them treat her a bit like just another girl with a crush. Here, Elizabeth reveals that her reasons for choosing to marry the Doctor when she'd eschewed so many suitors before him are motivated almost entirely by logic.
