REC: On The Edges of Time

Story: On The Edges Of Time
Author: rollingstone
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 1096
Author's summary: There are days the Doctor has, and some he can only wish he had.
Characters/Pairings: Seventh Doctor, Susan, Jamie, Jo, Sarah Jane, Romana, Ace
Warnings: none, really

Recced because: It gives us a glimpse of emotional life of the Seventh Doctor--the man behind the mastermind, if you will--and it does it beautifully. Through a series of short vignettes, rollingstone lets the Doctor interact with his past companions in the classic Five Things That Never Happened fashion and then tops it all off with an absolutely perfect scene with Ace. Throughout the fic, rollingstone has an absolute knack to capturing the mood of a scene. The Seventh Doctor is similarly well-captured in both sides of his dual nature: clownish at one moment, deadly serious in the next.

Plus, the world needs more fics where the Seventh Doctor invites Romana to come dancing and offers to play the spoons for her.
