Recced because: Clara said in The Name of the Doctor, "I don't know where I am. It's like I'm breaking into a million pieces, and there's only one thing I remember. I have to save the Doctor." What was that like? This brilliant fic delves into Clara's experience of one of those lives, and it wasn't just any life, either -- it was the life where she saved the Ninth Doctor during the events depicted in the episode Rose. As a bonus, we get to find out that Clara's splintered lives aren't all about the Doctor, either; in this particular life, she gets a very special and personal chance to say goodbye.
