Recced because: Bambera fic! One of my favourite minor characters – the fact she’s the Brigadier of UNIT probably helps – she gets a great ‘five things’ treatment here. Each of the possibilities presented – from scarily 1950s-style domestic motherhood, to space captain, to investigative journalist partner to Sarah Jane, to TARDIS traveller – all have a grain of truth, and while some, such as the first one, are not a fate I would wish on Bambera in a million years, it’s still very well done, and you can see how if she were in that role, she would conform to it as thoroughly and positively as she could. On the whole, this is a clever, thoughtful, and moving fic.
