Characters/Pairings: Tenth Doctor
Recced because: "And Change Their State" is a quietly harrowing look at the Doctor facing something he really can't fix. Too much description would ruin this brief story, I think, so I'll just give you a little excerpt:
It won't be long now. Sometime before sunset, he's certain. The signs are multiplying rapidly. A pigeon flying by the window, its wings moving in ways that don't quite obey the normal laws of aerodynamics. A finger dipped into his teacup and removed only with difficulty, as if surface tension has briefly increased a thousand-fold. Local gravitational fluctuations, tiny shifts in the behavior of matter. Subtle effects, easily dismissed unless you know what to look for, and he's the only one who does.
