Word Count: 8928
Author's Summary: The vampires of Venice did not die. Rosanna Calvierri was too determined to allow the race of Saturnynians--now reduced to herself and her children--to perish simply because of the Doctor. Written for Femgenficathon.
Characters/Pairings: Rosanna Calvierri, the Doctor (5th & 11th)
Warnings: Minor character death
Recced because: This is an absolutely gorgeous and rich reinterpretation of, and sequel to the Vampires of Venice. Gehyahi delves deeply into the motivations of Rosanna and finds her more sympathetic, if no less cruel or hard than we see her in that episode. This is a story of women, power, and family, and as far as I’m concerned, it’s canon.
