rec: Fire of Ages


Story: Fire of Ages
Author: AceOnGallifrey
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 1266
Author's Summary: Romana's last moments, as she ransoms the universe with her own life and maybe, just maybe, finds something Beyond.
Characters/Pairings: Donna Noble, Martha Jones, Rover Song, Romana III, Rose Tyler, The Doctor (8th)
Warnings: None

Recced because: This haunting yet beautiful piece of work really explores Romana and the impact her thoughts and feelings have after the time war. This fic also opens up the impact the Doctor had on Romana and how things might have turned out if she hadn't seen the universe through another lens other than the Timelord way.

I also love the Eighth doctor and Romana together. I think there should be many more fics exploring that combination in a positive light as the current canon through the BBC books shows quite a deep divide between the two.

Excerpt: Omega and the Other posited that the Fire of Ages, flowing through the veins of a Time Lord, might be a weapon of incredible power- but at the cost of the bearer's life. No one has ever before had the courage to try it, not even now at the end of all things. Except... she does. She and the Doctor.
