Author's Summary: She'd been to the stars and was now of the earth. Luke Smith waits for the world to start again.
Characters/Pairings: Clyde, Luke, Maria, Rani, Sarah Jane, the Eleventh Doctor
Recced because: This is a lovely story coming in the wake of Elisabeth Sladen's real life death, examining how the parallel loss of Sarah Jane affects the characters who knew her. Rutsky handles it very carefully, respectfully, and gracefully, and it's very bittersweet--in reflecting on her loss, her friends and family also remember and celebrate her life.
