Rec: "Liberation (The Clock Stops Remix)"

Hi people! I'm Curuchamion, and I'll be your reccer for this week.


Story: Liberation (The Clock Stops Remix)
Author: agapi42 or agapi42
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 380
Author's Summary: "The Doctor's exile is rescinded."
Characters/Pairings: Third Doctor, Jo Grant
Warnings: none.

Recced because: This story was written for me. That gives me, more than anyone else in the world, the right to say that it's perfect. It does exactly what I could never do with this concept - says what I always wanted to say in the sequel I couldn't write.

The original double-drabble, "Liberation", was about the end of the Third Doctor's exile: about how he still felt caged and broken, wondering if he was truly free. This story is also about the end of the Third Doctor's exile... but Agapi takes all the motifs and details of the original, changes the themes, and reworks everything into a breathtaking, glorious, heart-stoppingly beautiful piece of joy.

And the climax? The defining moment, the only possible snippet for this story?

There is no way I'm spoiling y'all for that. Read the fic. And when you've caught your breath again (and hugged your Doctor, and maybe rewatched that scene in "The Three Doctors" for good measure), be sure to leave Agapi a review, even though you'll be completely speechless. ;-)
