rec: from can to can't

Ok, so my last day happens to be September 11th – ten years ago today we were all waking up to a very different kind of world than we had lived in previously. I considered trying to find something which might reflect this but on hindsight I think it’s better if we have something quiet and thoughtful to finish my run. In any case I really thank you for joining me this past week, for any comments you’ve sent my way, and I may well be up here reccing again soon! Bye for now!

Story: From Can To Can’t
Author: Mandragora
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 5286
Author's Summary: The Doctor teaches Ace why he can and can’t interfere with history.
Characters/Pairings: Seventh Doctor, Ace
Warnings: Mild swearing, otherwise fine.

Recced because: Mandragora uses the Seventh Doctor to tell the logical question – if you had a time machine, wouldn’t it be tempting to use it to change history for the better? Or could that attempt make things much worse? And are there parts of history which can be altered over others. In light of the recent Let’s Kill Hitler episode this story manages to tackle that a little more expertly together without treading too much on what’s been said on the subject of changing the past. Seven and Ace are firmly in character and this makes for a great character piece between this much beloved TARDIS crew of mine.
