rec: memories are killing, by rollingstone

Story: Memories Are Killing
Author: rollingstone
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 1977
Author's Summary: Shortly after the Time War, the Doctor decides to visit an old friend.
Characters/Pairings: Ninth Doctor, Sarah Jane Smith
Warnings: None

Recced because: This was one of the first stories I read on Teaspoon, and it remains one of my favorites. The newly regenerated Ninth Doctor needs to say goodbye to his former, more carefree life, and so he spies on an old and very dear friend, Sarah Jane (who is pre-School Reunion when he finds her). The story is poignant, perfectly capturing the Doctor's feelings of loneliness and loss, and it leaves a bit of an ache -- but it's a good ache.

He is an orphan. A destroyer. An alien that used to see in the dark, but now becomes it. He hopes she can forgive him this, but he has to see her just this once -- the one friend, at the last, to close the chapter of his prior lives. He needs to assure himself that she's still here, that not everything is gone.
