Rec: Stories You Don't Tell

Story: Stories You Don't Tell
Author: Amy Wolf
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 2,909
Author's Summary: She was simply the wrong mother for the wrong son.
Characters/Pairings: Original Character, the Doctor (pre-series)
Warnings: None

Recced because: Why I don't mind the half-human bit from the TV Movie: stories like this that take a throw-away line and give us a thoughtful, detailed backstory to go with it, along with an intriguing take on what might make the Doctor tick. And a story about the failures and frustrations of motherhood hits me in the gut in a really personal way. The story may be short, but the author packs such detail and emotion into it that I'm haunted by it long after I've read it.
