Knowing Her Place, by Primsong

Last rec of the week! We're always looking for more people to rec, so if you've never done it before -- or even if you have! -- please sign up to rec! (You'll need to join the comm to view that post.)

Story: Knowing Her Place
Author: Primsong
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 1,364
Author's Summary: That old Type 40 never did fit in. Now it would never be of use again, such a shame, such a shame.
Characters/Pairings: the TARDIS
Warnings: None

Recced because: The Doctor wasn't the only rebel who left Gallifrey – his ship is every bit as rebellious. And here, in a vignette in which an arrogant Time Lord and a TARDIS technician discuss just what is to be done about this very difficult Type 40, Primsong shows exactly why the TARDIS is the perfect match for her pilot: a shared spirit of adventure. I don't always care for stories in which the TARDIS' thoughts are expressed in complete sentences, but that convention works quite well in this story; the TARDIS is the unspoken participant in a conversation about whether she should be scrapped, and her yearning for a different life, and willingness to wait for the right person to share it with, come through perfectly.
