Author's Summary: "Even the word 'Doctor' is false. Your real name is hidden. It burns in the stars, in the Cascade of Medusa herself."
Characters/Pairings: Other Character(s), Susan Foreman, The Doctor (10th), The Doctor (1st)
Recced because: I've read some very good stories that address the issue of why the Doctor hasn't revealed his real name. This one, which is described as an "experiment" by the author in reply to a review, is a wonderful character study written in an unusual style that really works. Various characters from the First Doctor era through the Tenth Doctor era are mentioned as the story builds to a beautiful finale. The last couple of lines make a perfect ending.
