rec: isobel's zoe

Femslash recs this week!

Story: Isobel's Zoe
Author: Amy Wolf
Rating: Adult
Word count: 1200
Author's summary: What can go on between two women, besides photography.
Characters/Pairings: Zoe/Isobel Watkins (from The Invasion)
Warnings: Explicit Sex

Recced because: This fic does everything right. Both women are very well characterised, with a clear contrast being drawn between Zoe's openminded 21st century perspective (as broadened further my travelling with the Doctor) and Isobel's dealing with attitudes to homosexuality that she's absorbed from the culture of her time. It's that bit of characterisation that's my very favourite thing about it: I don't think I've seen a better handling of the issue in fanfic before or since: most of the time, it's handwaved away and when it's not it tends to be either superficial or clunky. The sex is both integral to the plot and very hot, even while walking that tightrope. And on top of all that, it slots perfectly into its moment in canon.
