Reced because: I love Rory Williams. I’m fond of Amy, but I adore Rory. He is a classic of a certain type of Companion -- the ordinary person who discovers how extraordinary he really is. In this story, Amy questions Rory about the nearly two thousand years he spent as a plastic Roman soldier guarding her in the Pandorica. He tells her about some of the people he knew and cared about during that long vigil.
This is a story about love and friendship and sex, and the ways that they do (or don’t) overlap. And like all of Canaan’s stories, it is beautifully written.
"Two thousand years," she repeats. And Amy--his brilliant, beautiful Amy, who chose him and knew she was lucky to have him--says, "God, it must have been horribly lonely. If you were alone-- Please tell me you weren't alone the whole time."
He doesn't like to think about it. "The world's full of people. Some of them came to see the reliquary holding the goddess who would be reborn."
Go, read, and if you enjoy, please let the author know.
