Characters/Pairings: First Doctor, Second Doctor, Third Doctor, Fourth Doctor
Recced because: Primsong is one of the best Classic Who writers in the fandom. Most of her stories have already been recced on this comm, but the ones that haven't took me all day trying to decide which one to rec!
I finally settled on "Too Long in a Cage", her exploration of the Doctor's personality over his first four lives. Four short vignettes follow him from leaving Gallifrey, through "The War Games" and through his exile, to "Robot" and his new discovery of freedom.
"Too Long in a Cage" is another of those stories every fan should read - from those who saw Troughton's lost stories on first run, to the youngest Tennant fangirls, and everyone in between - anyone who loves the Doctor will enjoy Primsong's loving portrayal of his early years in this fic.
(And if you're not yet familiar with Classic Who, there's no better introduction than Primsong! I know whereof I speak; I was quite prepared to dislike the Third Doctor till I got hold of her writing. And just look at me now! *huggles plushie!Three*)
