Word Count: 3733
Author’s Summary: She's a teenage rebel with a taste for explosives. She's a voice with an Internet connection. Together, they fight terrorists!
Characters/Pairings: Ace McShane/Oswin Oswald
Recced because: Okay, I admit it, I have long carried an enormous girlcrush on Ace. This is the woman who brings a rope ladder and homemade explosives with her on Doctor-related adventures. This is the woman who waltzes through her one encounter with the Daleks and gives no flips, because she can just beat them up with her electrified baseball bat, or blow them up with her Nitro-9, or – oh, kind UNIT solider, is that rocket launcher for me? It is?
Then the show introduced Oswin Oswald, who I immediately fell down and worshipped as The Second Coming of Ace. They’re snarky, they’re competent, and they’re not going to let a bunch of rolling salt shakers with eggbeaters for hands get them down, amirite?
And then amazing author johne had them team up to fight terrorists, with sass, verve and style. The poor terrorists never stood a chance.
