Recced because: I can’t believe it hasn’t been recced before. (I’ve been checking again and again, but it doesn't seem to have been.) It’s one of my very favourite fics, produced for the seemingly all-round-amazing ficathon tardis_gen last year. Primsong has a knack of capturing the feel of an era, and produces what feels like a missing episode (for a TARDIS team whose episodes are mainly lost, so making up for things just a bit), with the wonderful backdrop of the 1900 Paris Exposition, unlikely doubles (in the true tradition of black and white episodes) and villainous skulduggery. It may be long, but it never feels it. It’s gone, like candyfloss, far too soon. I meant to try and be a little less obvious in my recs this week, but this one is just too good to miss. (Plus, it was written for a gen ficathon, but there's still the perfectly in-keeping bit of Ben/Polly. And Ben/Polly equals awwwness and ♥)
