Rec: Let's Do It

Although the comm's on break at the moment -- we'll be back on July 8! -- I might post a rec or two in the meantime, if only to test our new LJ -> Feedly -> Tumblr automated posting system. (Bless you, IFTTT.)

Story: Let's Do It
Author: Charamei
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 879
Author's Summary: The Doctor and Romana try to make sense of this 'romance' thing.
Characters/Pairings: Four/Romana II
Warnings: None

Recced because: I am sure some of you out there don't ship Four/Romana II, but for those of us who do ship these particular Time Lords, "Let's Do It" is a sweetly funny and frankly adorable look at how two highly logical aliens might explore traditional human mating rituals. Naturally, it involves relying on a book, albeit one called Great Romantic Tropes of Our Time, so holding hands, watching each other sleep, and getting caught in the rain all get their scientific due, as Four and Romana attempt to determine exactly how and why these mysterious rituals have any appeal at all.

What does work ... well, that would spoil the story, so I suggest reading it instead.
