Recced because: Well, quite frankly, I urged EAWeek to get a Teaspoon account so I could REC THIS FIC, if that tells you anything. I'm not a shipper (or rather, my ships are slashy rarepair), so in general Doctor/River is not my ship. But this fiction is so flawless, it made me ship them - if only for this fiction alone! A gorgeous tale that has perfect characterisation and all the action and adventure you could ever ask for from a Doctor Who fic. It also gives us a bit of background into Doctor Song's early years, as well as some startling insights into The Doctor himself (both current and past). A fiction that goes from the beginning to the end of The Stormcage and takes on the Silence in a big way you just won't see anywhere else. The real question is - how could I not rec this fiction?
