Author's summary: In which Susan builds a life made of little things and moments- learning to stand still. Classic!Who character insight piece, set after The Dalek Invasion of Earth. Susan/David

Recced because: I'm one of the rather small group of people who really loves Susan, and this little fic managed to encapsulate what I pictured her life being like after she leaves. I sincerely believe Susan would be able to make a happy life for herself without the Doctor, on Earth with David, and this piece has a hopeful slant, in a quiet, measured, yet lyrical way. It rings true for the Susan we know from the show, and that's good enough for me. An introspective, insightful, lovely piece, well worth the read.
