Author's Summary: The Doctor meets an old friend, and gains a new perspective. (Pre-Rose)

Recced because: The Doctor going to Nyssa after Gallifrey's death is an idea I've always been fond of, and Calapine executes it marvellously. The Doctor's raw anguish, Nyssa's older sorrow, conflicting emotions and no easy answers.

It's sad and sweet and difficult and hopeful, and I can very easily believe it happened.
