rec: Towing the Earth Home by mamfidd82

Hello! I'm Pitry and I shall be your reccer for this week (be afraid, be very afraid). I've decided to go this week with stories by authors who have never been recced before here on Calufrax, just to add a little bit more to the mix. 'Sides, it gives me an excuse to sign up for a second round later this year...

Story:Towing the Earth Home
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 1873
Author's Summary: After the events of 'Journey's End', two women move back into their lives. But for a moment, one moment there, they moved together.
Characters/Pairings: Martha/Tom, Rose/Duplicate Ten
Warnings: none.

Recced because: THe one thing I would fix/change about Journey's End is the nearly-non-existant interaction between Rose and Martha. mamfidd82's story doesn't fix JE's, and doesn't add interactions between these two, but rather shows what happens afterwards - two women who could have had the same life, each one thinking about the other. The really brilliant thing about this story is the love and respect shown to both characters - there are too many stories that downplay one character in favour of the other, but not this one - each character is played to its strength, each character gets to show just why she became a companion in the first place, and you can really feel the love the author has for both characters - and that makes the whole story just a joy to read.
