rec: certainty by mithel

Hi, I’m lost_spook (vvj5 on Teaspoon); I’m your reccer for this week, and I shall try to include a fairly wide mix of eras, stories and authors, so hopefully everyone will find something to like. And, bearing in mind the date, I had to start with this, really:

Story: Certainity
Author: mithrel
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 2401
Author's Summary: Ben asks the Doctor for a holiday. Set between The Macra Terror and The Faceless Ones.
Characters/Pairings: Ben Jackson/Polly Wright, Jamie McCrimmon, Second Doctor
Warnings: None.

Recced because: You know how it is with calufrax; you have a carefully planned-out list of recs, and then you change them all round at the last minute… This time I belatedly remembered it was Valentine’s Day today, so what better than a sweet, but not soppy, Ben/Polly love story? In which the TARDIS crew actually get a holiday for a wonder – but will Ben get the girl?

Mithrel captures the Two-era dynamics perfectly; there is a lovely, relaxed holiday feel to the fic, with plenty of nice little alien details – and a very special ring. Ben/Polly = ♥ If you don’t already know that, you should read this and find out why.
