Characters/Pairings: Ben Jackson/Polly Wright, Jamie McCrimmon, Second Doctor
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.
