Author's Summary: "He was the champion – no the lord – of foolhardy plans, whipped together at the last second with barely a prayer of working. But this…this took the cake. It was all up to Jack now." Ten, Rose, and Jack in a spot of trouble, several times over.
Characters/Pairings: The Doctor (10th)/Rose Tyler, Jack Harkness
Recced because: This story has everything – action, mystery, romance – all wrapped up in a Mobius strip of timey-wimey goodness. Sanguine Ink does such a fantastic job of capturing the frustration of getting stuck in a time loop, while still keeping the reader engaged and the plot moving. Everyone gets a chance to shine, and there is a special guest appearance in chapter three that’s totally worth the price of admission.
