Recced because:

The Time War caused the whole universe to convulse, and this is one of the best fics I’ve read that deals with the ramifications of that sentence.

This is a Tenth Doctor story told in first person from the POV of an original character, and I know that might turn some people off (which is another reason I’m reccing this; because I want it to get the love it so justly deserves). I absolutely urge people to give this story a chance – it may just astound you. The descriptions, the characterisations, and the plot are all top notch and so gritty-real it hurts sometimes. Also, there’s a cameo from a past companion, but I won’t give up the game on who it is. It’s very clever though, and just a little bit heartbreaking. Which is a good description of the story as a whole actually.
