Rec: A Magpie Mind, by Saganami Dreams

Story: A Magpie Mind
Author: Saganami Dreams
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 4,220
Author's Summary: Eight into Nine, Nine into Ten, and the times between, seen from behind the Doctor's eyes. Margaret Slitheen said in Boom Town that the Doctor had a magpie mind; this version of the magpie counting rhyme just seemed to fit perfectly. (written pre Christmas Invasion, so the last part is speculative/AU)
Characters/Pairings: Jack Harkness, Rose Tyler, Eight, Nine, and 10
Warnings: none

Recced because: A wonderful example of how stories that get deep inside a character's head can flow incredibly well and not have the usual bumps and jerks this style of writing seems to have. The story gives us a wonderful view into how the Doctor might have been feeling immediately post-Time War and without becoming a "true" relationship!fic, offers a very realistic explanation for why the Doctor might have fallen in love with Rose.
