rec: and the lightning by Doctor Tam

On the Doctor and his companions – and why it is he finds himself travelling with humans so often:
Story: and the lightning
Author: Doctor Tam
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 547
Author's Summary: During a visit to a far future, the Doctor reflects on how human his perspective has become.
Characters/Pairings: Second Doctor, Jamie McCrimmon, Zoe Heriot
Warnings: None.

Recced because: This is a beautiful ficlet, and a rare peek into the Doctor’s mind, as he reflects on how travelling with his companions has changed him and the way he sees the universe. It’s tightly-written and moving, and while it happens to be Two thinking of Jamie and Zoe (and those that came before them), it would be easy to imagine similar thoughts from other Doctors at other times – Nine and Rose, Seven and Ace, Four and Sarah, Three and Jo, Eleven and Amy. It’s true here, and true throughout the show. (Well, just look at what happens when Ten travels alone…)
