Recced because: I might be biased, since it was written for me in a ficathon, but then it is Harry fic in characters, so what's not to like? It's a fun tale of various times when Harry lost his shoes and never puts him down. He gets to meet a couple of characters from other eras along the way, so it's interesting to see how he interacts with them. It's just wonderfully characterised and fun.

“They’re demanding the customary bribe,” the Doctor told them.

“Bribe?” Harry exclaimed. “Now see here, Doctor, this is ridiculous! What sort of culture would operate their official government transactions this way?”

Sarah elbowed him to hush, but the Doctor was already giving him a mild, steady look that Harry had never quite decided meant the Doctor pitied him or disapproved of him. Whatever it was, he found it jolly uncomfortable and kept meaning to tell the Doctor so, only the moment never seemed quite ripe for that particular sticky conversation. Certainly not while Sarah was around.

If you like this, don't forget to tell the author.
