Author's Summary: The past is best served as a flaming cocktail. Takes place between "The Doctor Dances" and "Boomtown." And when you think you’re swimming to the surface You’re swimming - straight down -- Laurie Anderson, “Freefall”
Recced because: This story about Jack's memory, the reality and unreality of the TARDIS, and the power of friendship, is remarkable, and beautifully told. Jack's and Rose's conversations are pure pleasure to read, because they tell the reader so much about the characters - and about the way people learn about each other. The writing is dense, full of wisdom, mesmerizing images, and a solid story that still manages to shimmer with beauty.
