Recced because: The story line and character development is just incredible, and it's all written around the idea that our pets are actually sentient creatures (and maybe they aren't always happy about the arrangements, as in the Doctor and Rose's case being captured against their will). Jellyneau has created a complex world of characters and creatures (the Danarians) with a culture and society all of their own. It’s totally fascinating, and almost feels like it could be a serial in NuWho, but in addition to that we get the blossoming love story of the Doctor and Rose as well, which adds a whole other dimension to the story. It’s so well-written, it’s addictive! You’ll be clicking next chapter, next chapter, next chapter and be done before you even know it.
