Recced because: Ace is coming to terms with things that are hard to discuss; she has the Doctor to talk to, but sometimes, that's not so easy. Beautifully written, with lovely beat lines and wonderful use of repetition, this is a thoughtful and fascinating piece. There are some great bits of world-building, giving Ace new companions to explore herself with, new situations and adventures in which to learn more about herself and about the Doctor too, and all of the observations are clear and sharp. The mix of plot and introspection is perfectly handled, and the ending made me smile and smile.
