Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 468
Author's Summary: This was a moment she would always remember. *Spoilers* for The Girl Who Waited
Characters/Pairings: Amy Pond/Rory Williams
Warnings: None

Recced because: I love fics that give you the background for something that happened in an episode, especially when the outcome is as marvelous as this. In "The Girl Who Waited," we found out that Amy has an important memory of the first time she and Rory kissed, but for some bizarre reason, she calls the memory "Macarena." I mean, what? You'd think it was a joke, but it's a poignant scene, except of course for the mention of the Macarena, that cheesy dance we'd all rather forget. In this fic, Allonym takes on the challenge and gives us the story behind the Macarena moment, then knocks it out of the park. Who knew that a fic about the Macarena could be so special, and beautiful, and absolutely perfect?

Amy might’ve had one too many pints when the pub radio began blasting the opening chords of Macarena. Suddenly she was transported back ten years to her primary school days, when she and Mels led the whole school through the moves of the dance during the school disco. She jumped from her bar stool into an empty spot between tables, stretching her arms out and swaying her hips.
