Rec: The Winter of Her Discontent

Story: The Winter of Her Discontent
Author: LilacFree
Rating: All Ages (though I'd personally call it Teen)
Author's summary: AU after 'The Five Doctors'. The Doctor is going home to be President, and he's bringing his primitive little friends Tegan and Turlough with him. Will Gallifrey survive? Contains non-explicit adult situations.
Characters/Pairings: Fifth Doctor, Tegan Jovanka, Turlough, Leela (Pairing: Five/Tegan)
Warnings: none

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.
