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.
