Rec: The Time Lord's Handbook of Regeneration

My last rec of the week! As always, it's been a pleasure. Don't forget to pm me with a suitable email address if you would like a list of the stories you've reviewed on Teaspoon.

Title: The Time Lord's Handbook of Regeneration
Author: Awdures
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 3799
Author's Summary: The Doctor really does never have simple, easy regenerations. There's a good reason for that.
Characters/Pairings: Doctors 1 through 11
Warnings: None

Recc'ed Because: The Doctor's regenerations over the years are the change points that help define both his continuity and his differences. I must admit when I was confronted with the vast history of Classic Who after being introduced through New Who, my first instinct was not to watch in order but to start with all of the endings. And as such, with all of the beginnings as well. This is a series of vignettes that take us through each experience, at the best what may be considered an appendix of cautionary tales for the titular pamphlet. One constant amid the change: the Doctor never does anything by the book.
