Recced because: I'm surprised that this wasn't recced by the person who was doing a TARDIS-themed week, but that means I can rec it myself!
This story is so lovely. It isn't just that this is one of those rare stories that feature the TARDIS-as-person (a person, but alien in its personhood); it is the way that this takes myths and fairy tales, weaves them into the events of Nine's tenure, and makes them fit. Full of symbolism, resonance and love, painted with a vibrant and poetic brush.
