Author's Summary: "Come on," Martha said, "hop on the back of my scooter; there's just room enough for two." 1969 has unexpected pleasures.
Characters/Pairings: Martha/Harry Sullivan, Ten
Recced because: When I put together my rec list for this week, I had no idea that livii would be one of my fellow reccers, or that another one of her Martha/Harry stories would be linked this week. But I'm reccing this story anyway, because it's lovely.
I have a soft spot for any fic in which the characters accidentally (and temporarily) have to live normal lives, and 1969 fic falls squarely into that category. Pairing Martha Jones with Harry Sullivan, who would have been her contemporary at the time, makes this particular 1969 fic that much more special. Bumbling, slightly stuffy, sweet-natured Harry meets his match in Martha, a relationship livii has explored in other stories, but this one recounts their earliest days together – a first meeting with the accident-prone Harry, and subsequent dates that culminate in Martha's revelation that she's somewhat more than she appears to be. It's a charming love story between what looks on the surface like a very unlikely pair, but by the end of this story, Martha and Harry seem made for each other.
