Matt Smith - Sharp-Dressed Man B&W

As the World Falls Down

Hello, hello all! Tis PhoenixDragon - back again with a handful of recs! I'll try to do multi-era (I'll do my best) but I'm quite sure there will be something for everyone. I'm really excited to be sharing again this week - so let's get started, shall we?

Recced because: Ahhh, this is what I consider one of the best kinds of Doctor Who fic. A fairytale (if you will) within a fairytale. It feels like a whole 'nother world, even as it is very much a Doctor Who fiction. This author has such phenomenal characterization, she can place these characters in any situation and keep it all in balance (and she has done so several times) and yet, you never feel as if you are out of place. Her grasp of the intricacies of the characters, the wonderfully vivid settings and the pacing of her plots makes all of her fiction worth a read. But this is one that sits very close to my heart and sits at the top of my favorites. I certainly hope you enjoy it as much as I have. Oh! And don't let the wordcount daunt you. Before you know it, the fiction is over and you are left blinking, wishing it could have gone on forever...
