rec: slumber at dawn

Story: Slumber At Dawn
Author: mary_pseud
Series: Damnatio Memoriae - story #1.
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 1347
Author's Summary: The Doctor was just looking for a pretty sunrise. Instead, he found a planet's final dawn.
Characters/Pairings: Second Doctor, mentions of Jamie.
Warnings: None

Recced because: I wasn't expecting such richness if ideas and imagery in such a short piece. The author may stumble slightly here and there, but overall this is a charming, poignant moment in time where two cultures clash and beauty is found in tragedy.

...Sometimes we are a secret society, sometimes we are a ruling elite. Always, we talk, and we share, and then we move on, and leave the world a better place for our being there. And when we die, we cry out to the Universe, that we may warn Heaven and Hell. For our souls are great and fierce and proud...

Note to the comm: I apologise for only just turning up to rec now, lol! The hemispherical time difference coupled with a bit of confusion on my part (I'm not getting much sleep this week) resulted in this being my first rec for the week. I'll make it up to you both in volume and (hopefully) in quality :)
