Rec: "A Few Things and a Lizard," by Beer Good

Hello, calufrax! For once I'm here in my capacity as reccer, not as the mod, so expect recs from me for the next two weeks. (Although as always, if you'd like to rec – and everyone is welcome to do so! – leave a comment in the signup post or send me an ask on Tumblr.)

Story: A Few Things and a Lizard
Author: Beer Good
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 2,820
Author's Summary: When Clara doesn't join him after the events of "Deep Breath" the Doctor picks up another companion. A big, sexy woman with legs up to here, a tail that won't quit, and big, nasty, pointy teeth. Yes, the Doctor is joined by a T Rex in the fix-it fic to end all fix-it fics.
Characters/Pairings: Adric, Clara, Danny, Harriet Jones, Ianto, Jack, Martha, Rory, Sarah Jane, Wilf, Twelfth Doctor, Simm!Master
Warnings: None

Recced because: The Doctor has had many companions over the years, but never, to the best of my knowledge, a T. rex, much less the one from "Deep Breath." And let's just say it's remarkable how differently certain situations might have played out had a gigantic carnivore been brought into the mix. (Davros never stood a chance.) Best of all – and unlike a number of companions – our dinosaur friend finally gets a happy ending, and a fate she earned far more than what really happened to her in her one onscreen episode.

Excerpt:

The Doctor pulled a few levers.

The Doctor pushed a button.

The Doctor twirled a twirly thing.

The TARDIS, despite all his efforts, did absolutely nothing.

“What?” he finally said to thin air before pulling another lever to no effect.

“Oh come on,” he continued. “You’re not telling me you’re…”

He pushed a button again. “OK, fine. Yes, I called her ‘sexy’. With a small s. I didn't mean - " The TARDIS flashed a few lights but otherwise did nothing.

“Yes, her tail is objectively bigger than yours. Happy?” He pushed a button, and the TARDIS took off with an unusually smug fvworp.
