rec: Museum Piece

Hello! It's me again. Although, woefully lacking in Who icons until I pay my membership fees again. T_T This time I thought I'd try and recc something from every Doctor's era, since I have 2 weeks to recc, so... here we go!

Story: Museum Piece
Author: honeynoir
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 551
Author's Summary: Time Lady Clara and the cantankerous, broken-down Type 40 TARDIS who refuses to be properly repaired. (Doctor/TARDIS)
Characters/Pairings: The TARDIS, Clara Oswin Oswald
Warnings: Spoilers for latest season finale.

Recced because: Ok so I said I'd start One!Era... I sort of did. This is a lovely little piece investigating the lives and times of Clara Oswin Oswald. I took particular interest in this one because as anyone who knows me will tell you, I take particular delight in Gallifreyan History 101, and it's especially interesting to see a character so-well-written that is simultaneously an outcast, and not an outcast (I actually began this with a similar tale about Susan). It's also hilarious, I mean, I giggled out loud on more than one occasion. It's touching, too, and it's nice to see - again - a similar but not similar interaction between the TARDIS and Clara. Also, spot-on characterisation!
