rec: people used to dream about the future

Story: People Used to Dream About the Future
Author: Calapine
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 36858
Author's Summary: The world ended sometime in March 2006. This is, of course, a lie. Just like everything else in this story. Nobody bothered to tell the Doctor, Jack or Rose though.
Characters/Pairings: Ninth Doctor, Jack, Rose
Warnings: None

Recced because: I almost didn't rec this fic, not because it doesn't deserve it, but because I'm really not sure I can say enough good things about it. It's just that good.

The Ninth Doctor, Rose and Jack arrive in London 2006 to find the planet on a precipice, a familiar enemy and a struggling group of survivors that contains more than one familiar face. This fic mixes classic and new who with more success than any other fic I've ever read, the pacing is brilliant, the characterisation superb. And as for the ending, after I finished it you could quite easily have knocked me down with a feather.
