Recced because: I'm starting off my week of reccing with a darkfic. Just a quick note that this story contains somewhat graphic descriptions of mutilation, starting in the second paragraph. This material suits the tone of the fic, though, which is chilling and disturbing. Basically, the Doctor finds himself in a very unpleasant situation, and he ends up making two difficult decisions. I'm still mulling over his choice at the end of the story.
