rec: The Fake Fiancé by infiniteviking

Story: The Fake Fiancé
Author: infiniteviking
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 3620
Author's Summary: Trapped on Verescis, the Doctor and Peri are dragooned into a diabolical wedding ritual -- but the native who helps them escape is more than he seems.
Characters/Pairings: Sixth Doctor, Peri Brown
Warnings: None.

Recced because: It’s a clever, well-written fic; the interactions between the Doctor and Peri are perfectly judged, from the banter at the start, to the more compassionate exchanges as the situation becomes more serious, and it’s an interesting look at an alien world with a smart twist in the tail.
