Recced because: And one more remix, which also does a fantastic job of pulling out something from the original story and creating a fabulous parallel story. The original is atraphoenix's excellent The Strength To Let Go, told from Martha's POV on meeting and re-meeting Liz forty years later, though very little time has passed for her. The remix gives us Liz during those long forty years, and creates a gorgeous portrait of her, a life lived half in waiting but never not lived. It's well-written, thoughtful, with some great imagery and excellent cameos by two different Doctors, helping nudge Liz along the path to understanding and appreciating what she has in her life. It's a terrific remix and a terrific story in its own right as well.
