Recced because: This story almost leaves me breathless in admiration every time I read it. It’s such a perfect summing up of Six and Peri‘s relationship with all its contradictions and complications. Not only that, but it’s so vividly written I can see and hear and all but touch everything and there’s a brief but excellently drawn alien race in the background. It’s also one of the best introductions I could think of to this TARDIS team, so don’t ignore it if you’re a stranger to Six and Peri. It's a polished gem of a fic.
