rec: Intimacy

Story: Intimacy
Author: Bibliophile1887
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 3631
Author's Summary: Regeneration is a terribly intimate process.
Characters/Pairings: The Doctor (13)
Warnings: Spoilers for major events in the first nine Doctor's eras. Also, TISSUES. MULTIPLE BOXES OF THEM.

Recced because: It's one of the first Whofics I ever read, and one I treasure dearly and re-read more than any other fanfic regardless of fandom. It's the last Doctor and a quiet introspection upon his life and the people in it, leading to an ending that is both heart-wrenching and beautiful, bittersweet and wonderful.

In short: if you read just one story I rec this week, let it be 'Intimacy'.
