Warnings: None.

Recced because: I think I'd better face it. I'm obsessed with the Time War. I'm obsessed with fics about the Time War, and I think this huge, empty playground that is the Time War is one of the best possible gifts a show could ever grant fandom, bar none. That said, I love this story, not only because it encompasses and portrays the horrors I imagine to befit such a war, but it relates them back to our present Doctor-and-companions box set - and the Zero Room! They brought back the Zero Room!

I won't spoil any more, but there's also a really fun part where you lose your mind.
