Word Count: ~1,800 words
Recced because: A beautiful little story set during Castrovalva, where Tegan and Nyssa bond over shared horrors perpetuated by the Master, their stories woven together with fairytales and histories. The use of language is fanciful and playful, there's interesting use of repetition of theme throughout, and both girls come off very true to character. It's light and dark in alternating moments, and altogether a unique and clever character study for two women who deserve this sort of fic treatment.
