rec: the dread pirate missy, by penny

Story: The Dread Pirate Missy
Author: Penny
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 5811
Author's Summary: “It’s all a bit Dread Pirate Roberts, isn’t it? ‘Good-night, Osgood. Sleep well. I’ll most likely kill you when the loop ends’.” Osgood knew she ought to be more concerned at finding herself aboard Missy's TARDIS. Again. And again. And again. In which things get a bit Groundhog Day, Osgood eats a lot of butterscotch, and Missy learns a valuable lesson about friendship.
Characters/Pairings: Missy/Osgood (sort of)
Warnings: None.

Recced because: This is pretty much a murderous version of Groundhog Day, as the author's summary suggests. It's at times hilarious, heartwarming, and disturbing. Written before there was any suggestion of Osgood returning, this fic single-handedly convinced me that this was a TARDIS team that really ought to have happened. (It could still happen, in fact. Your move, Steven Moffat.) The characters' voices are distinct and well-written, and their relationship develops from iteration to iteration to one of almost, maybe if you squint hard enough, mutual respect.
