Rec: A Butterfly for Every Storm

Story: A Butterfly for Every Storm

Author: Nostalgia

Rating: All ages

Word Count: 527

Author's Summary: Martha's tattoo is oddly appropriate.

Characters/Pairings: Tenth Doctor, Martha Jones

Warnings: None

Recced because:

I like so much about this short piece it's hard for me to explain why I like it.  Blending an idea from a throwaway line in The Shakespeare Code, Freema's real-life tattoo, and two of the Doctor's personas into a powerful ficlet takes skill.  Nostalgia uses the butterfly as a symbol of the Doctor's companions; ephemeral creatures that flit through his life so briefly.  The last line packs a real punch.
