REC: Through a Glass Darkly by wmr

The last two days sort of got away from me, but you get two recs from me today and two tomorrow to make up for it. Sorry for being a bit derelict in my duties!

Recced because:

I can't believe this hasn't been rec'd here before! The extremely prolific and awesome wendymr regularly comes up with (IMNSHO) some of the most interesting AU premises in the Who fandom, and this one is my personal favorite. The changes that wendymr makes to the Pete's World!Doctor and Jack's back-stories are fascinating, and the way that she explores what those changes mean for the characters are even more so. And once you're done with this story, there's a bunch of others set in the same 'verse for you to enjoy!

Recced because:

This fic is both funny and touching. pocketmouse has a wonderful understanding of how our current Team TARDIS works together, and I especially love the relationship Amy and Rory have here. It is perfectly in-character, delightful, and sexy, despite not having any actual sex in it.

No spoilers for S6.
