Author's Summary: The Doctor stops in on Brighton beach, and meets an old friend under very unusual circumstances.
Characters/Pairings: Tenth Doctor/Romana II
Warnings: None.

Recced because: To be honest, I'm not sure if this was jossed by "End of Time" or not (I think it's up for debate), but either way, this story is amazing. Set sometime after "Journey's End," the Tenth Doctor stops by Brighton beach and impossibly comes across Romana. What happens next is basically just a conversation, but what a conversation it is -- all about life, and death, and the Time War, and what it means to know that your time is coming to an end. It's also gorgeously written, and the last line is especially wonderful.
