Recced because: This is Ninamusing's amazing H/C WIP. When I first encountered it, it grabbed me by the throat and refused to let go. It's a love story, but not one that shirks the darker moments these three are capable of. Both the characters and their adventures are 100% believable; if Doctor Who didn't run in a family-friendly timeslot, it might look like this.

The gaze was intelligent and powerful. And not blue.
