Rec: Something to It

Story: Something to It
Author: albatrossjr
Rating: All Ages
Author's summary: Pre-Unearthly Child: He is just imagining it.
Characters/Pairings: Ian Chesterton, Barbara Wright
Warnings: none

Recced because: Ian is not in love; he is just imagining it. A dead-on portrayal of Ian, showing the attraction between him and Barbara before they ever met the Doctor. The story is beautifully written – the style suits the subject matter perfectly – and it's all so very possible, and feels so real. It's short and sweet and clever, with some lovely details, and also manages to break my heart, the way they're dancing around each other, and the way Ian values his friendship with Barbara too much to think he could ever act on his attraction. Just a wonderful little bite of a story.
