Author's Summary: Ian Chesterton and Wilfred Mott are friends through the years.

Recced because: Why did it never occur to me that Wilf and Ian would be contemporaries? Thank goodness it occurred to Pendragon, though, or we wouldn't have this lovely story in which Ian and Wilf immediately bond and form a lasting friendship. The character voices are spot-on, and honestly, re-reading the story just now so I could write the rec still fills me with joy, even if there are occasional sad moments, just as there are in anyone's life. But those moments are that much easier to deal with when you have a friend who understands you – and fortunately, Ian and Wilf do.
