Recced because:I have been a long time fan of the Piers Anthony 'Incarnations of Immortality' series and this fic combines what I found fascinating about the three aspects of fate melded in with Doctor Who. How on Earth could I resist?
Regardless of your attitudes to Rose Tyler as a companion, her journey in this fic to find her way back across the void only demonstrates her compassion, her need to right wrongs and empathy for others (especially alien species) whilst introducing some terrific OC's. Plus there is Donna Noble sass which always go down a treat, especially when Nine is in the room.
Read if you enjoy some decent world building, a quite lovely Rose/Ten reunion fic and if you ever wondered how Nine would deal with a woman crankier than Jackie Tyler.
