Recced because: I absolutely adore stories that explore Gallifrey. This story takes the Gallifrey you hear about in the novels and on the series and turns it on its ear, giving it a depth that makes it so incredibly real. I love all the nuances that make it so alien from any culture that we would consider normal. I also absolutely adore LilacFree's Tegan. I love how she manoeuvres through the political intrigue on Gallifrey and I love how it enhances the relationship between Five and Tegan. Gorgeous prose, clever storyline, and a story that I adore reading again and again. I highly recommend this story to anyone who loves Gallifrey and who loves Five/Tegan.
