Rec: Making Do by Thirty2Flavors

Hello everyone, I'm sciathan_file and I'll be sending some recs your way this week. I hope everyone can find a fantastic fic or two to love as much as I do!

Story: Making Do
Word Count:
Author's Summary:
 Life goes on for Donna Noble.
Characters/Pairings: Donna, Shaun Temple
Warnings: Spoilers through "The End of Time."
Recced because: Thirty2Flavors is generally brilliant at just about whatever she turns her pen to, and this fic is no exception. Among a plethora of fix-it fics, this one takes what canon has thrown at us and runs with it. What this piece does with Shaun's character is particularly admirable: he emerges as a fully formed character through the prose rather than just an alternative that Donna has to take now that her former life has been denied to her. There are still bittersweet fragments of that other life sprinkled throughout, but the life that Thirty2Flavors forms here for her is every bit as everyday fantastic as Donna deserves.
