rec: the storyteller

Hey, hi! I'm neveralarch, and I'm going to be your reccer this week. It's going to be mostly fic based on the Big Finish audio series, but there will probably be some other areas of the fandom represented as well. I hope you'll check the stories out even if you're not familiar with the specific source material - they're all really good.

Anyway! On to the fic.

Story: The Storyteller
Author: atraphoenix
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 2969
Author's Summary: Leela's stories begin with one Time Lord and end with another.
Characters/Pairings: Leela/Romana II, Sarah Jane Smith
Warnings: None.

Recced because: I read this fic before I listened to the Gallifrey audio series and before I watched almost any of Four, back when I only had a vague idea of who Romana or Leela were. This fic serves as a lovely introduction to both of their characters, and Leela in particular. Leela's struggle to live in and to change Gallifreyan society is depicted without shying away from the difficulties. But Leela doesn't lose hope, even at the bittersweet end.
