Author's summary: Just what exactly did the Doctor mean when he said 'I was a dad once?'
Characters/Pairings: First Doctor, OCs, Susan
Warnings: none

Recced because: Really good character studies of the pre-series First Doctor are pretty thin on the ground. So when I found this one, it nearly jumped off the page at me. In about a thousand evocative words, the author takes us from the day the Doctor first meets his wife to the day he leaves Gallifrey. Readers might debate how well (or if) various plot elements fit in with their version of canon, but the use of language is lovely and the heartwarming final exchange with Susan made this story for me.
