DW blue TARDIS

Rec: Doing Time

Hello, calufrax! Since I still have power (at least for the moment!) here at the edge of Hurricane Sandy, I figure it's time to post a rec. If you're interested in reccing at calufrax, let me know over at the sign-up post -- we're running low on reccers.

Story: Doing Time
Author: AstroGirl
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 1,005
Author's Summary: The Doctor isn't the only one in exile.
Characters/Pairings:
the TARDIS
Warnings: None

Recced because: If the Third Doctor's exile was hard on him, how hard must it have been for the TARDIS, literally born to travel in time and space? AstroGirl weaves elements of "The Doctor's Wife" into this poignant TARDIS character study, examining how the relationship between ship and thief is strained by their mutual grounding. The TARDIS' perspective feels believably alien, but her feelings of longing and loss are universal.
