Rec: 'Echoes' by helluin

Title: Echoes
Author: helluin
Rating: Adult
Word Count: 2696
Characters/Pairings: Fifth Doctor/Nyssa
Author's summary: After a trying day dealing with prats wearing pasta on their foreheads (Mawdryn Undead), our Totally Just Friends duo goes exploring deep in the TARDIS to clear their minds and talk nerdy at one another. Smut ensues.
Warnings: Explicit sex

Recced because: Though it may technically be labelled as 'smut', this is also a rather lovely character piece for Five & Nyssa. I've always enjoyed the 'kindred space nerds' relationship between them, and this fic does a believable job of showing what could have happened had they gone beyond just friendship. Their science-y banter & heart to heart about the events of 'Mawdryn Undead' in the beginning capture their voices excellently, highlighting their affection for one another as the source of their attraction, and they retain their endearingly earnest and sweet interaction even when things start to get hot and heavy. The timey-wimey sex is gorgeously written, with the clever concept of 'time echoes' heightening the sensuousness. If you ship Five/Nyssa, you have to read this, and even if you don't, you might change your mind after this one!
