Recced because: I love fics that give you the background for something that happened in an episode, especially when the outcome is as marvelous as this. In "The Girl Who Waited," we found out that Amy has an important memory of the first time she and Rory kissed, but for some bizarre reason, she calls the memory "Macarena." I mean, what? You'd think it was a joke, but it's a poignant scene, except of course for the mention of the Macarena, that cheesy dance we'd all rather forget. In this fic, Allonym takes on the challenge and gives us the story behind the Macarena moment, then knocks it out of the park. Who knew that a fic about the Macarena could be so special, and beautiful, and absolutely perfect?
