Recced Because: It is an odd little story, exploring the idea of predestination paradoxes. Usually with this kind of thing, the Doctor is the one who changes the companion. He shows them the universe, and they become a better person because of that. It is quite easy to forget that the companions change the Doctor just as much as he changes them, and that is why I love this fic. It clearly shows the delicate relationship between the two, while also paying homage to the fact that the companions are amazing and usually go on to be amazing after their time in the TARDIS. The last line is a nice touch too, with the Doctor portrayed not as the all-knowing Time Lord, but the wanderer, the traveller who marvels at the beauty and mystery of the universe.

Recced because:

The Doctor’s life has never been an easy one. There have been loses and sacrifices every step of the way – and gains, at the same time. This is a concise history, economical, and pulsing with everything that makes the Doctor the Doctor across all of his incarnations, in the face of any loss or confrontation:

The faith and love he shows his companions, his sorrow when he must let them go, and the regret when cannot save them.
