Author's Summary: The Doctor says very disturbing things when he feels that he has to. An attempt to make an out-of-character idea in character.
Characters/Pairings: Rory, Eleven, a couple OCs
Warnings: None, but the author's note includes this disclaimer: Although there is no onscreen non-con, one OC is in a very abusive situation and there is definitely non-con in the back-story. Also, another OC is thoroughly humiliated.
Recced because: This is a really lovely observation of the ways the Doctor is terrifying and wonderful, not to be trifled with and yet fundamentally gentle and kind. It also deals with bringing hope to horrible situations. As usual, Lyricwritesprose hits all the right notes in the characterization.
