Rec: Getting Through by travels_in_time

I think this will be my last. Thanks for having me :)

Author's Summary: He can't save them all. But if he's very lucky, maybe he can save just one.
Characters/Pairings:Ten/Simm!Master, Susan

Recced because: Confession time: I was bawling like a baby during Ten's farewell tour. Visiting all of his friends before he died was such a Ten thing to do. But the fridge logic moment is inevitable: how does he go from 'epic confrontation with the Time Lords' to farewell tour? Isn't he forgetting something? Or - let's be honest - someone? Someone who just exhibited a potential character turnaround of the sort Ten has canonically begged for on his knees? Someone whom leaving is tatamount to killing, since he can't exactly expect any kind of warm welcome back on Gallifrey? Never mind the whole 'burning' thing... I love you for many things, RTD, but the evenness of your writing is not one of them.

Fortunate, then, that travels_in_time has stepped up to fill the gap. If there were such a genre as an End of Time fix-it, I suppose this would be it: once more into the Time Lock, to right the last great wrong. Susan appears (rejoice!) to inject some added poignancy, a link from the beginning of time to its end (if you'll forgive me). This is the way Ten ought to have gone out: with none of the truly important things left undone.

Speaking of endings, this is going to be my last rec. Thanks again for having me! If you liked something I recced please let the author know. There's no such thing as too many reviews.
