Author's Summary: "Doctor. Do you think that it's possible - just possible - that your semi-immortality may have given you a skewed perspective on the subject?"
Characters/Pairings: Tenth Doctor, Cordelia Naismith Vorkosigan
Recced because: In this quiet crossover with Lois Bujold’s Vorkosiverse, a newly widowed Cordelia is traveling with the Doctor. This story captures the emotional heart of both characters perfectly, and Cordelia’s Betan level-headedness is just the thing to balance Ten’s angst. Even if you’re not familiar with Bujold’s works, this is worth a try. But be warned, there’s a good chance Cordelia will intrigue you enough to explore her story further!
