Author's Summary: “I wandered lonely as a cloud…” A walk in the country and a chance meeting for the Seventh Doctor.
Characters/Pairings: Seventh Doctor, Ace McShane, Beatrix Potter
Beatrix Potter seems like an author that the Doctor would want to meet. The fact that Seven has a chance encounter with her adds extra interest for me, because Seven isn’t the Doctor that I would have imagined with her. Yet in this story he seems like the perfect choice to provide advice on how to remember those you’ve lost, without letting it stop you from moving on with your life. I love that he recites one of my favorite poems, and even quotes his Fourth self. Also, the descriptions of the Lake District in this story are so lovely that it makes you feel like you are there.
