rec: Lost Luggage and Lost Souls by Nemo the Everbeing

Story: Lost Luggage and Lost Souls
Author: Nemo the Everbeing
Rating: None, but I'd call it Teen
Word Count: 20,338
Author's Summary: Because listing bus stations as something you hate just begs writers to put you there. The Seventh Doctor and Ace join an odd cast of characters in time to get held hostage, and the Doctor remembers why he prefers saving worlds to smaller crises.
Characters/Pairings: Seven, Ace, many original characters
Warnings: Swearing

Recced because: It's rare to find a story in which you see the Doctor and his companion largely through others' eyes, and even rarer to find one that does a good job of it. Nemo the Everbeing brings together a collection of very lost souls – a runaway, an ex-con, a single mother escaping an abusive husband – all of whom need more help than ever when what looks like a robbery becomes a deadly hostage situation. Seven is at his manipulative best here, and Ace is drawn just right – tough and brash, but still a little vulnerable. Combine the excellent characterization with a gripping plot, and you've got a truly terrific story.
