rec: A Discourse on the Medical Risks of Regeneration

Title: A Discourse on the Medical Risks of Regeneration.
Author: pencilguardian.
Characters/Pairings: 3rd Doctor.
Rating: All ages.
Warnings: None.
Word Count: 3058.
Summary: On Gallifrey, the newly-minted Third Doctor gets a checkup.

Recced Because: I find regeneration really interesting, and the transition of the 2nd Doctor to the 3rd is not typical as we all know. This fic occurs after the timelords have forced the 2nd Doctor to regenerate. The 3rd Doctor is in a weakened and precarious state for most of this story, the action focusing instead of the Gallifreyan physician and a guard. The writer is very economical, having so few characters and such a simple plot. This story stands out most for me as a window into Gallifreyan life, as the physician describes all the various ways regenerations can go wrong.
