Author: Styrofoam monster
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 1795
Characters: Jo Grant, The Master (Simm)
Author's summary: AU. Jo Grant has a visitor.
Warnings: none

Recced because: This is a sad but interesting AU in which an older Jo converses with an oddly familiar visitor who shows up on her doorstep bearing grave news. The ensuing conversation alternates between measured wariness and stark candidness as old wounds and new are brought up, with the passage of time and the burden of grief poignantly leveling the playing field between them for one brief moment. A fascinating character study.
