Author's Summary: A fairytale about Amelia Pond and the big Bad Wolf.
Characters/Pairings: Amy, Rose, Rory, Eleven
Warnings: none

Recced because: This is a lovely story that picks up on the fairytale elements of Season 5 and runs with them.  I'm not a big fan of the "Rose comes back" genre, but this is handled really carefully, and the first few sections in particular (with young Amelia) are fabulous.  The characterizations are all good, and it's a bittersweet, low-key adventure that spans Amy's life as we know it.  Keep an eye out for the Beast Below scene--what Amy sees on the screen makes a lot of sense as an addition to canon.

Here's an excerpt:

There is a crack in Amelia's wall, and it leads to another world.

Amelia knows these things. She's read all the proper stories to prepare herself, of course. She considered the possibility of Narnia at first, then dismissed that as fanciful. Even with witches and endless winters, Narnia was a land of marvelous things, fauns and Father Christmas and wonder. The crack in her wall is nothing like that. There's something there, something dark and terrible and frightening. Amelia doesn't want to find out where it goes.
