Recced because: Each word and phrase of this short, carefully written story works. For me, that means I cry every time I read it. Sometimes it's in grief, sometimes it's in relief, sometimes it's in joy. But I always cry. That's the kind of power the story has.

Author's Summary: On her birthday, Ace receives two gifts: one intentional and one not.
Characters/Pairings: Ace McShane/7th Doctor/TARDIS
Warnings: None
Recced because: this story - the first Who fic this writer ever wrote - helped introduce me to the Seventh Doctor, and to the delightful, redoubtable, Ace McShane. What's more, she did so by weaving a stunningly beautiful scene of the universe as seen from the door of a blue police box, and showing a keen understanding of the true nature of the Doctor, and of one very brave and perceptive human girl.
