rec: A Little Rest for the Wounds by Carmen Sandiego

Story: A Little Rest for the Wounds
Author: Carmen Sandiego / Calapine
Rating: Adult
Author's summary: The Doctor, a werewolf, and a house in Brazil.
Characters/Pairings: Tenth Doctor/Ileana de Santos
Warnings: none
Word Count: ~700 words

Recced because: Ileana is from the Loups-Garoux Big Finish audio, and as that suggests, she is indeed a werewolf; her interactions with the Fifth Doctor are revisited during a meeting with the Tenth Doctor in this short but very effective piece. The story is beautifully written, with lines such as On his back, her nails are claws are nails are claws which just pop with imagery, and both characters are perfectly drawn, with the Doctor looking for a little respite from his worries and his past, and Ileana being able to see through him, and show his fallibilities. It works wonderfully.
