Author's Summary:A man with two hearts wakes up in an underground cavern with absolutely no memory of who he is or how he got there. Or who the nine strangers with him are. But what starts as a search for answers and identity rapidly turns to a fight for their very survival as the true stakes of the twisted game are revealed, and a surprising connection is forged.
Characters/Pairings: 10th Doctor, Rose Tyler, other canon characters
Warnings: According to the author none, but there are some emotional (and sometimes violent) character deaths. So I'll warn for feels, just in case. And some violence.
Recced because: it's one hell of a wild ride, and one I'd take again and again. This was one of the very first fics I read when I first joined the Teaspoon, and I fell completely in love with it. I think if Suzanne Collins and Russel T. Davies had a little fanfiction lovechild, it would be this story. LN29 weaves a tale so vivid and complex, you will be sad to see it end at a mere 205,464 words. The beauty of the story is that it's so well done, you could have little to no background knowledge of Doctor Who and still be captivated. That we as the reader recognize who the individual characters are though makes it that much more exciting. I have a soft spot in my heart(s?) for this fic, I hope you'll find a place for it in your own.
