rec: Broken by Pete Galey

Story: Broken
Author: Pete Galey
Word count: 2,460
Rating: All ages
Author's Summary: A trap is set for the arch trap-setter.
Characters/pairings: The Doctor, Ace
Warnings: None.

Recced because: Because Broken manages to be funny and full of banter without losing the most interesting part of the dynamic between the Seventh Doctor and Ace, and at the same time play with that dynamic in the most brilliant way. Because it's so essentially Doctor Who, at whatever incarnation. Because it manages to be funny and full of banter and with a happy ending, but still hint at a much deeper darkness. And in the end, because it's a really good story.
