rec: this song is the cross that I bear by coffeesuperhero

Greetings, calufrax! I'm ladymercury_10 (Lady Mercury on the Teaspoon) and I will be your reccer this week. I mostly have Eleven-era recs for you, but I've tried to make sure there is a good range of different sorts of stories, and I do have some recs from other eras as well. Here we go!

Story: this song is the cross that I bear
Author: coffeesuperhero
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 4828
Author's Summary: It was the TARDIS that changed everything.
Characters/Pairings: Amy Pond, River Song, Rory Williams, The Doctor (11th), The TARDIS
Warnings: None.
Recced because: This is the River Song backstory that we really needed post-"Let's Kill Hitler" and haven't gotten from canon. It has family bonding--both with Amy and Rory and with the TARDIS, it dips into River's academic endeavors and her human-plus capabilities, and it gives weight to the other centers of gravity in her life besides the Doctor. The characterizations are all really great, and the scene with River and Rory is particularly lovely.
