rec: escapology

The dw_femslash ficathon just happened over at that comm, so I figured I'd rec something awesome from ficathons past.

Story: Escapology
Author: birdsarecalling
Rating: teen
Word Count: 4,794
Author's Summary: Donna Noble's stuck inside her own head. What she needs is a little escapology. (Donna/Jo Grant)
Characters/Pairings: Donna Noble/Jo Grant, Sylvia Grant, Wilfred Mott, Mike Yates, Shaun Temple
Warnings: none

Recced because: This fic is adorable. I feel like 'Donna meets old companion' may be a trope (and one that I've written recently, hm), but this is the defining one of those fics for me. Partly this fic is about Donna coming back from having her memory taken by the Doctor, partly it's about what Jo does as she gets older, and there's a tiny bit in there that's somehow about Mike Yates and is so good. This whole fic is so good - a really nice melding of new and old school Who.
