Rec: Walking and Sleeping by Awdures

Confession: I think, over time, I've decided that the Fifth Doctor, despite being introduced to the Fourth Doctor first via Who repeats on PBS, is my Doctor.  He dressed very comfortably, treated his companions as equals  and always tried to inspire bravery in all of them except for Kamelion.  Here's a rec from that era with one of Fivey's companions and how Fivey helps to soothe his angst.

Story: Waking and Sleeping
Author: Awdures
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 3194
Author's Summary: Turlough's contract with the Black Guardian is at an end, but he's still struggling to shake off the experience.
Characters/Pairings: Turlough
Warnings: Explicit Violence
Recced because: This is an amazing character piece dealing with Turlough after the events of "Enlightenment." Despite being free of the Black Guardian's contract, Turlough still dreams of the Guardian's voice and killing the Doctor. He needs the help of the Doctor to shake off these dreams. Awdures does a good job of detailing Turlough's nightmares and the Guardian's voice. I couldn't stop reading this fic, and I was disappointed when it ended. Highly recommending if you like Turlough or Fivey's era.
