Recced because: This fic supplements the canon episode The Doctor's Wife so well that it's hard to believe it was actually posted to Teaspoon roughly three years *before* the episode aired. One might indeed imagine that Neil Gaiman could have seen and been at least partly inspired by it. Of all the TARDIS fics I've seen, none have summed up the fractious yet loving relationship between a time ship and her Thief nearly so perfectly or so poetically. (This is another one that is not really about any one specific Doctor, though Ten is mentioned at the end.)
