Recced because: Am I boring because I'm reccing the same author twice in a week? Probably. Do I care? Nope! Because Petunia Bowl is awesome enough to be recced everyday, I just wish she wrote enough stories for me to do that.
And this is one of my favorite romances ever, any fandom. It's short and sweet, but packs so much into every sentence, from the things the Doctor doesn't tell Donna, to Donna's slightly unwilling realization that maybe she does love the Doctor, after all, to one of the sweetest, hottest and most in-character sex scenes I've read in this fandom. Writing good sex scenes is an art, and far from every writer can do it. To do it well involving two characters who aren't together in canon, and do it in a believable way, that takes true skill, which Petunia Bowl has.

I've enjoyed this week, thanks for having me! Hopefully you've discovered some new, enjoyable stuff.

She loves him.

Of course she does. It’s practically impossible not to really, what with that whole time-travelling-universe-saving-dazzlingly-brilliant-yet-deepy-flawed-and-boyishly-charming thing he’s got going on.

She’s not in love with him though, because that would be spectacularly stupid. This is possibly the first relationship she’s ever had where she feels like she’s got her eyes wide open and she knows they’re something more than that to each other, that this is something that goes a lot deeper. And here’s the really surprising part — given the way she’s seen him looking at her sometimes, he seems to be rather fond of her, too; although she can’t for the life of her think why.
