Rec: Com Estrelas

A very Merry Christmas to everyone here that celebrates it! (And even if you don't, or if you're just browsing and it's the middle of July or something - have a happy day anyway! We could all use one, right?)

Story: Com Estrelas
Author: Rutsky or kaffyr on LJ
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 1572
Author's Summary: “When there's no running and hiding, there's time for wonder.”
Characters/Pairings: Ninth Doctor, Jack Harkness, Rose Tyler
Warnings: None.

Recced because: Rutsky is the first author I've recced this week who's been recced here before - but I just couldn't leave this story out.

"Com Estrelas" is one of those lovely little pieces in which, you could say, nothing very much happens. It's one of the spaces between the adventures, when the Doctor and his companions don't have to run... when they can share the beauty and peace of stargazing on an alien planet.

Rutsky isn't so much a fic writer as a poet, and I mean that in the best possible sense. Every word in this story is perfectly chosen to make us feel as Nine, Jack and Rose do here. Peace in the universe, goodwill towards all, and stars; what better fic to rec on Christmas Day?

Hugs to you all! ♥
