Recced because: I adore all of MJ's fics, and would rec any of them, but there is something special about this one. I keep coming back to it, reading it over and over again, savoring lines and paragraphs (there's one, about Doctors' Five through Nine, that is just amazing.) Not only is this a brilliant tribute to one of my favorite companions, but she captures the characters of all ten Doctors perfectly.

The separate timelines blending would cause irreparable damage, but there was no way they could pick just one of them to attend. They had even tried, at one point, to pick only one by drawing straws. But, the Edwardian chap in the velvet frock coat kept slight-of-handing the right straw, and the little one in the fur coat kept challenging the Bond-esque fellow with the mop of white hair, and the bloke in the leather jacket said he was going, and no stupid drawing was going to stop him.

In the end, they all just went.
