Rec: Falls the Shadow

Story: Falls the Shadow
Author: Nemo the Everbeing
Rating: All Ages
Author's summary: It was supposed to be nothing more than a seaside holiday for two old friends to relax and recharge, but something went wrong. Then a lot of things went wrong. Now, as Ace deals with the emotional fallout of a realization that could put an end their decade-long friendship, the Doctor discovers something potentially deadly about the world on which they’ve stopped. And then the darkness falls.
Characters/Pairings: Seventh Doctor, Dorothy (Ace) McShane (Seven/Ace)
Warnings: Swearing

Recced because: I never thought I'd actually like, no love, a Seventh Doctor/Ace story. The Seventh Doctor was my first Doctor, just as Ace was my first companion, and I always thought theirs was more of a mentor/mentee or father/daughter relationship. That is until I read this story. This is an older, wiser Ace and a clever, clever Doctor. Nemo the Everbeing has a great talent to bring these characters to life in such a way that I can say 'yeah, I can see that happening' when it comes to a pairing that I never thought I'd be able to read. The storyline is rich and engaging, with the underlying romance a perfect counterpoint to the angst and entertainment of time going dreadfully wrong. If you are hesitant over the idea of Seven/Ace, do give this a try. I guarantee that it will sway you, because this is a writer whose pairing of these characters I can get behind. Nemo has several fics that are just as brilliant as this one, and I highly recommend them all, but this one has a special place in my heart.
