Story: After
Author: Dshael
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 1,638
Author's Summary: The Doctor is asexual. No, really. It makes being in love with him difficult sometimes.
Characters/Pairings: Ten, Jack
Warnings: None

Recced because: This fic is not about asexuality--it's about relationships. It shows that any kind of relationship is great as long as it works for the people in it, no matter how "odd" it may look from the outside.

It shows the dark and lonely side of being an immortal (or a Time Lord), and hints at the depth of pain and despair that entails. The ending is warm and fuzzy, but the fic shows that it takes work to get there.

And yes, this story shows how relatioships between sexuals and asexuals can work, and that makes me happy on a personal note. :)

It has been great fun being your reccer this week. Farewell, gentle readers!
