Rec: 5 Minutes Before the Wedding by naiad8

Bonsoir, Calufrax! doctorxdonna here (RoseByAnyOtherName on Teaspoon), I'm another one who encountered the Doctor through new Who, but I've been loving 'getting to know' him and his past though through the 1-8 stories that crop up here on Calufrax. I really and truly did mean to get to this recc yesterday, but I'm a retail manager and spent most of my time rocking back and forth in disbelief that I survived Black Friday weekend. Now I'm still riding the leftover high from the 50th Anniversary special, so I bring you this little gem from an author who'd never been recced here before. Enjoy!

Story: 5 Minutes Before the Wedding
Author: naiad8
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 715
Author's Summary: A conversation between the Doctor and the woman he's about to marry. She has her reasons.
Characters/Pairings: 10th Doctor and Queen Elizabeth I
Warnings: None

Recced because: How I wish the anniversary had played out a little more like naiad8's version of the story. History tends to speak of Queen Elizabeth I as a brilliant, pragmatic, and analytical woman, and I was a little sad to see them treat her a bit like just another girl with a crush. Here, Elizabeth reveals that her reasons for choosing to marry the Doctor when she'd eschewed so many suitors before him are motivated almost entirely by logic.
