Author's Summary: Donna is the (un)lucky companion stuck with the Doctor in 1913 this time around; she's not quite sure how to deal with this sudden change in situation. Mostly she just blames the TARDIS. Uses season 3 episodes "Human Nature" and "Family of Blood."
Characters/Pairings: Donna Noble/The Doctor (10th)
Warnings: None

Recced because: I love this story so much. I first read it over a year ago and since then I've gone back to read it all over again two more times. The way Lilac writes is fantastic- incredibly humorous and with just the right amount of description, thought, and dialogue to make for a perfect read. This fic does veer into more explicit areas later on, so be aware. Personally, this fic takes the cake for best episode with a different companion.
Ten and Donna are so very in character, well, as much as Ten can be when he's John Smith. I can't even try to describe the amazing that is this fic. Just go read it for yourselves and you'll know what I'm talking about.
