rec: choose wisely, by aiffe

Story: Choose Wisely
Author: Aiffe
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 1295
Author's Summary: Alternate ending to The Beast Below. What if Amy had been mistaken?
Characters/Pairings: Amy Pond, The Doctor (11th)
Warnings: None
Recced because: This fic presents a stark contrast to the previous rec. Like ‘Nothing to Worry About’, it’s set just after The Beast Below. However, in this fic, things turned out differently. What if Amy had been mistaken? What then? And if we're still going by the "Star Whale = Doctor, dammit!' analogy, then what would that say about the Doctor himself? This fic is grim, wonderfully written and well worth your time.

Author's Summary: She's doing this to him because she loves him - well, some other version of him. The one in the real world - but she's doing this because she loves him. Really. Really, really. He'll understand soon. Just not right now. But he'll understand. Eventually, Rose Tyler will make him understand everything, even this. darkfic
Characters/Pairings: Ten/Rose…or not. Pete’s World!Jack comes into it as well.
Warnings: Non-con, violence, disturbingness
Recced because: I’m frankly stunned this story hasn’t been recced here before. The Rose it presents is very, very different to the Rose we know, but just similar enough to send shivers up your spine. This story is incredibly dark but the way it plays out, and the sheer quality of the writing, is all so entrancing that you can’t look away. Without spoiling anything, the end is so, so powerful and triumphant and sad. In short, this is one devastating, chilling and utterly disturbing fic, it’s incredibly well written, and it is worth your time.

That would be my final rec for this week. I hope you’ve enjoyed the fics! :)
