Rec: "Used to Be Fantastic"

Eee! My turn to rec! I'll have to get in a few before I leave for Oregon, so here's the first:

Story: Used to Be Fantastic
Author: darclee or Darcie
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 16163
Author's Summary: The Doctor struggles to help prevent a wide-spread tragedy, but to do so he may have to give up on Rose...
Characters/Pairing: Ten/Rose, OCs
Warnings: None

Recced because: First of all, Darcie's not getting nearly enough love around here. All her stories are fantastic, especially the longer, plotty ones. This is a prime example. The plot, equal parts political intrigue, ecological disaster and personal struggle (Rose is ill, possibly dying while the Doctor's coerced into helping a totalitarian government), rips right along while the author misses nary a beat with the characters. This feels like an episode of DW in every way. In spite of being sidelined by her illness, Rose is hardly a helpless victim; she's very proactive until she literally can't stand up. As for the Doctor, his solution is absolutely ingenious. After reading this one, check out "Royal Blood," which I very nearly recced instead. Don't forget to review!
