Thurday Surprise!

Well, I thought I knew what I was reccing this week, but apparently I was wrong. On Monday this story appeared on teaspoon, and I knew I would have to make room for it.

Story: Cautionary Tales for Incautious Children
Author: JayTheNerdKid
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 1516
Author's Summary: A guide to fairytales (and how to interpret them) for the clever and discerning child or child-at-heart.
Characters/Pairings: The Doctor (11th), Amy Pond
Warnings: None

Recced because: As any smart child knows, the kind of fairytales your parents tell you before bed are a pack of lies. This is a story about stories, about true stories. There are no heroes on white horses, just a man in a bowtie, and it's hard to know if he's the hero or not.  This story is well written and all around wonderful, and although it's about the 11th Doctor it's really about all of them, and you should go read it, it won't take you long.
