Rec: Monday's Child by Palmetto

Story: Monday's Child
Author: Palmetto

Author's summary: There's always that period of adjustment when a person first becomes a parent.
Characters/Pairings: alt!Pete Tyler, Rose, Jackie
Warnings: none
Word Count: ~920 words

Recced because: This is a great little look at a minor character who has more significance than he's generally given: the Pete of Pete's World, who has regained a wife who's not his wife, and especially, an adult daughter who is so much like him, but isn't his at all. As palmetto says, they're a bit of a Frankenstein family, and she does a great job of exploring what Pete's thoughts might be, his adjustment to a situation where he loves his daughter in near terrifying ways, despite not knowing how to show it. Quiet and careful, this is a satisfying fill-in of canon.
