Nightmare Child (Bad Dreams Remix)

And for today’s rec we are back to the Time War. No Romana this time (it was tempting but I realise not everyone likes her as much as I do).

Story: Nightmare Child (The Bad Dreams Remix)
Author: Livii
rating: all ages
word count: 1843
author's summary: "O God, I could be bounded in a nutshell, and count myself a king of infinite space—were it not that I have bad dreams." Susan, in the Time War.
characters/pairings: David Campbell, Leela, Susan Foreman, The Doctor (8th)
warnings: none

recced because: Instead I have a story with Susan, who is another fascinating character in Doctor Who canon because there is just so much we don’t know about her. Firstly, this story is a haunting character study of her; and secondly, I am always fascinated by stories which explore the relationship of the Time Lords with Time. This fic brilliantly contrasts that Time Lord life with Susan’s life on Earth through a collection of fragments. The result is a story about growing up, taking responsibility and facing consequences.

So many of Livii's fics have been recced here already, which I think shows that this is a fantastic fic. So go and read it.
