Recced because:

Great writing, emotional dialogue, and a startling twist.

Peri is the Schrodinger's Cat of Doctor Who. Here, Ten pays her a visit to ask for forgiveness with words and actions. Meeting the Doctor has effected Peri's life in good ways and bad. She's rather philosophic about it: happy about what she's gained, and pragmatic about what she's lost. This fic shows how much the Doctor cares about his companions, even though he is a coward sometimes; especially when it comes to loss. Most of all, it shows how much the Doctor needs the people he travels with and what he might turn into without their influence. I recommend reading this twice, because some of Peri's early observations become much more significant following the final paragraph.
