Backwards Traveller, by Lydia Hunter

Story: Backwards Traveller
Author: Lydia Hunter
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 4,242
Author's Summary: The Doctor encounters an old companion who prefers to leave his past where it belongs.
Characters/Pairings: Ian, Peri, Six
Warnings: none

Recced because: The Doctor takes Ian for one last ride in the TARDIS. Never mind that Ian doesn't want one last ride in the TARDIS.

Backwards Traveller does such a beautiful job of showing what home has come to mean for Ian. I love fics that put a companion who's left and made his or her life next to a companion who's still aboard the TARDIS, still unfixed, because the contrast always seems to make them both seem more real. And everybody's so entirely, marvelously themselves here, especially the Doctor.
