Recced because:

The biggest, though perhaps not the best, reason that I love this fic is a certain line about the Doctor, fifty cups of tea, and his amazing alien bladder control.

The other reason, is the way the author combines great writing, a fun plot and good characterization, while managing to keep the story completely, and believably, grounded in both the X-file and Doctor Who segments of the cross-over. Getting an outside perspective on Eight’s behaviour is highly amusing as Mulder and Scully bicker over what to do with him.

This story is quite long, and it is all in one chapter, but if you’ve got a long night and a desire to snuggle up and read a bit of quality cross-over fic, this story makes for a highly entertaining read.
