rec: ceci n'est plus qu'un conte de fée

Hello again!  Here is your rec of the day:

Story: ceci n'est plus qu'un conte de fée
Author: leiascully
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 4085
Author's Summary: This is the story of two irresistible forces and an immovable universe.
Characters/Pairings: Eleven/River, Amy/Rory
Warnings: None

Recced because: This is a lovely follow-up to "The Wedding of River Song." The prose is lyrical, and it's a very gentle, graceful story. It doesn't hesitate to touch on sadness, but the emphasis is on redemption, family, and joy. The fairy-tale/mythology allusions work wonderfully.  Plus, bonus Donna. How can you not love it? 

Here's an excerpt for you:
