rec: Death in the Tealeaves by aralias

[Entirely irrelevant, but yay, ‘tis Saturday, and I have such a lovely Saturday-ish rec to share…]

On what it is like to live in the TARDIS with the Doctor (Yes. It is just as crazy/amazing as you thought it would be):
Story: Death in the Tealeaves
Author: aralias
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 1807
Author's Summary: The Doctor likes tea, but this morning tea seems not to like him.
Characters/Pairings: Eighth Doctor, Lucie Miller
Warnings: None.

Recced because: This story is a sheer joy from start to finish. It may feature Eight and Lucie (perfectly characterised; I can hear Paul McGann and Sheridan Smith in my head as I read), but it’s absolutely the sort of thing that happens in between adventures when you travel with the Doctor – any Doctor – and I love fics that give us glimpses of the madness of TARDIS life. There are no spoilers and all you need to know is this: the Doctor loves tea, really loves tea. Lucie Miller is less fussed about tea and tea-related anecdotes, but she is handy with a frying pan when there’s tea-related trouble in the TARDIS kitchen. Oh, and it’s just gorgeously written throughout, and a really fun romp. (No, not that sort of romp, even if Lucie is wearing her penguin pyjamas…)
