Rec: "a knife inside me"

Story: a knife inside me
Author: Lady Mercury
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 430
Author's Summary: I won't let love disrupt, corrupt or interrupt me
Characters/Pairings: Amy Pond, River Song/Mels, Rory Williams
Warnings: Implied violence and discussion of death.

Recced because: It's an exceptionally chilling look into the mind of a girl bred to kill. It's an unnerving reminder that, as much as we may love her, River Song wasn't kidding when she called herself a psychopath. It's not a happy story, by any stretch of the imagination, and it's a bit unsettling, but in that way, it's a perfect fit for the character and her circumstances. It's well written and insightful, and we need more Mels-centric stories in the universe.

[Excerpt]

The teachers at school said she never did her homework, never bothered to practice. Well. That just wasn’t true. Mels was doing homework all the time, practicing to be something bigger, something better, schooling herself to channel cold like steel.


When she broke Shanna Poggit’s favorite doll, that was homework, was practice.


When she took the shining Year Three pet goldfish home for the weekend, and it never came back: practice.
