It’s absolutely gorgeous.
Really, there’s not much more I can say to sum it up. I love Donna and seek out fic with her, and yet, somehow, this is the first straight-forward, non-AU, fic I’ve seen with her set in the gap between The Runaway Bride and Partners in Crime. It’s about her growing as a person. It’s about her vacation to Egypt. It’s about the utter dullness and wonder of life on Earth. It has a prose style which draws the details crystal clear and hyper-real, painting the picture, showing all of the little nitty-gritty things that make up a day, that so often get forgotten by authors. This is professional, publishable quality writing. It’s absolutely gorgeous. And it’s all told from a perspective that is unequivocally, uncompromisingly, Donna Noble, unedited, in all her glory.
