rec: Castaways by Amy Wolf

Since we just had a regeneration scene, let's have a story that picks up directly after the regeneration from 8 to 9.

Story: Castaways
Author: Amy Wolf
Rating: All Ages
Author's summary: Between the Time War and Rose.
Word Count: 16097
Characters/Pairings: The Doctor (9th)
Warnings: None

Recced because:
This is the story that first convinced me that Doctor Who fanfic was worth reading. :D If that's not convincing enough, try this: The Doctor, fresh from from the end of the Time War, crashes in the Philippines in the 31st century (not 21st century London! Amazing!). It could have been yet another character study of angst!9 (and god knows, there's angst in this story), but Amy Wolf gives us a plot, and good side characters along with our character study. This is a story about a Nine- damaged and confused- who's finding his way back to being the Doctor.
