Author: cosmic angst
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 2053
Author's Summary: Some cracks run too deep to heal on their own. That's where the Doctor comes in. Doctor/Romana. Set after The Big Bang.
Characters/Pairings: Eleven/Romana
Warnings: None

Recced because: Because this is desperately, achingly beautiful. Because I am an angst junkie, and I want to direct this story directly into my veins. Because the Doctor gets to see Romana again, and Romana gets to see the Doctor again before she dies, and we get to see them traveling together again one last time. Because Eleven/Romana is one of those pairings I never would have thought of, but by God, does it work. Because fiction about difficult choices is my crack cocaine. Because I love Romana so, so much, and even though the Doctor has to erase the peaceful Gallifrey she helped save and nurture, she does get some kind of closure. And so does the Doctor. And so do we.
