Fezzes are cool. The Doctor knows it, and now we all know it, too. It's simply a fact of life, one of those accepted rules of the universe and all of creation. It's the ultimate type of headwear. Forget the fedora or the Panama or even the Stetson - it's all about the fez.Story: Souvenirs

Author's Summary: The Doctor doesn't just like to wear a fez because it looks cool. It's a memory of someone important and a promise that he made to himself.
Characters: Susan Foreman, The Doctor (11th), The Doctor (1st)
Recced because: The fez is an icon, a cultural symbol that's come to represent the Eleventh Doctor and, perhaps, all of modern Doctor Who in general. Which is odd because it seems like the Doctor just stumbled across one in The Big Bang and randomly started wearing it. Did we miss something? Is there a deeper story here? Of course there is. And now you can read it.
