Rec: The Jagged Edge by Jonquil

Story: The Ragged Edge
Author: Jonquil
Rating: All Ages
Author's summary: He is but mad north-north west.
Characters/Pairings: Nine, Rose
Warnings: none

Recced because: A perfect little gem of a story. The Doctor has never been the typical Gallifreyan, and this gets at that exactly, and then applies those lessons to the rest of his life. He falls down, he bumbles, he takes chances; he takes on responsibility and he sees futures that he can't change. There's so much wrapped up in the few words, and it's funny and also very dark and sad all at the same time, with a chilling last line.
