Author's Summary: Just what happened to Reinette in those first hours that it became clear the Doctor would not return?
Characters/Pairings: Madame de Pompadour/The Tenth Doctor
Recced Because: This author is one of the best on Teaspoon. Reinette fic is not often praised in favor of Ten/Rose fic, but this is one of THOSE fics, the ones that stick with you for hours and hours after you've read them. The language is so fluid, the narration so perfectly in-character. I swear I felt chills after reading this. It's still one of my favorites.
