rec: "Because I can do anything" by ClocketPatch

Story: "Because I can do anything"
Author: ClocketPatch
Rating: All Ages
Word count: 503
Author's Summary: Set at the end of Armageddon Factor. The Doctor holds in his hand the Key to Time. Will he use it?
Characters/Pairings: Four, Romana I
Warnings: none

Recced because: This is a sublimely clever fic that ties old and new school canon together beautifully in a remarkably short span. With the simple but brilliant idea that holding the Key to Time, once assembled, gives the Doctor the ability to see the future (or possible futures, as there are hints at the various branches of non-telly canon), making his choice about whether to use the Key's power much more poignant in a way that resonates wonderfully with Romana's future (her departure in particular) and key new school moments like the confrontation with the Emperor in Parting and the Skasis Paradigm scene in School Reunion. A fantastic achievement.
