rec: You Don't Have To Be Mad (But It Helps!) by Roach Patrol

Hello, I'm lost_spook, back for another reccing stint! I'm otherwise known as vvj5 on Teaspoon and I'm very fond of all eras of our show and my recs will hopefully reflect that, with a fair mixture of all fifty years (and counting). So, let's get started...

Story: You Don't Have To Be Mad (But It Helps!)
Author: Roach Patrol
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 1045
Author's Summary: "Doctor, it says right there that it's not supposed to do anything," Amy says. "You've been running scans on it for ages! How do we know it's not some lame time traveling archaeologist joke? 'You don't have to be mad to go running about in time and space but it helps'?"
Characters/Pairings: Eleventh Doctor, Amy Pond, River Song
Warnings: None.

Recced because: What better than a great piece of humour to start off the week? River gives the Doctor a box with a red button on it, which doesn’t do anything at all. Naturally, this is more than the Doctor’s curiosity can stand. It’s very funny, the explanation when it comes is both beautifully simple and very clever, and it’s all completely in character. I loved it; I hope you do, too.
