Recced because: I know it's probably cheating a bit, since this story was actually written for me in a ficathon, but it really is one of my favorites. I absolutely adore it, and I just couldn't pass up the chance to point people in its direction.

It's actually a series of five short snapshots in time, each one featuring a different incarnation of the Doctor and his various companions. One of the things that I adore about this story is that it features such a variety of companions, including several from the Big Finish audios who aren't seen in fanfiction nearly enough. (Evelyn! Hex!) It's hilarious at some points, bittersweet at others, and everyone is very much in character.
