Recced because: This is an incredible piece: just beautifully written, thoughtful, and also really, unexpectedly, hot. The Doctor here is Seven to a T, and Peri comes across as very sympathetic, very real. This story goes into such depth in so few words about the universe the Doctor and his companions inhabit: the idea of needing vs. wanting, forgetting, remembering, and creating your own history. It's twisty and imaginative, and wraps up the good and the bad all together into one amazing, if at times somewhat deliciously uncomfortable, whole. It's a fabulous piece of work.
Peri runs her hand up his thigh–
No, scratch that; Peri runs her mouth up his thigh–
No, scratch that; Peri pushes him down her body because he owes her–
No, it couldn't have happened like that;
circumstances plainly dictate
that he's already got her hands secured to the headboard.
