Rec: Being the Doctor, by Gillian Taylor

: Being the Doctor
Author: Gillian Taylor
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 869
Author’s Summary: Someone has to be the Doctor. Why not them? Spoilers for 4x11 - Turn Left
Characters/Pairing: Donna Noble, Jack Harkness, Martha Jones, Rose Tyler, Sarah Jane Smith
Warnings: None

Recced because:  Donna is another companion I adore beyond what's normal for a fictional character. (Someday, someone will write Donna/Fitz, and it will be snarky brilliance.)

In "Turn Left" what stands out is how Donna's Inner Awesome shines forth, how even a Donna who has never met the Doctor is a bundle of potential brilliance waiting to shine. But who wasn't devastated by the brief reports of the fate of Martha, Jack, Ianto, Gwen, Sarah Jane & Co, in a world without the Doctor? Delving into some character insight during the events of the episode, this short story celebrates how extraordinary each of the companions involved are- whether they've met the Doctor in this timeline or not. Each was willing to do whatever is needed to set things right, even at the sacrifice of their own lives.
