Like an Onion Inside Out (The Doctor, the Queen, and the TARDIS Remix), by Spiralleds

Hello - thanks for having me. I'm aralias and I will be your reccer for this week. My posts won't usually be so early, but I have today off and surely a good way to start any day (off or not) is with with Doctor Who fic. I like the Master best and so about half my recs will feature him, but half of them won't. This one doesn't. It is a crossover, but that doesn't indicate a pattern (though I will rec another before the week is out - I leave that as a tantalising hint). For now, today's rec is:

Story: Like an Onion Inside Out (The Doctor, the Queen, and the TARDIS Remix)
Author: Spiralleds
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 10,979
Author's Summary: Sometimes endings are just the beginning. A crossover between Doctor Who and The Chronicles of Narnia, with a pairing of The Doctor/Susan Pevensie.
Characters/Pairings: Eight, Nine, Ten, Rose, author created Doctor, other Narnia characters - particularly Susan Pevensie
Warnings: Character death

Recced because: It's a wonderful example of a remix, for a start. The original, Falls the Shadow, is a very interesting, slightly confusing series of sentences(ish) in a mixed-up timey-wimey order, and 'Like an Onion' restructures it into a coherent story about the last of the Time Lords meeting (and re-meeting) the last of the Pevensies. He's there at important points in her life, and she in his (while he's Eight-Ten) and eventually they decide to travel together once he's a new, engaging and entirely loveable Scottish Doctor, and have a variety of exciting adventures together. The end is the best bit, but I won't spoil it for you.
