Story: Object Impermanence
Author: Ponygirl
Rating: None given
Author's summary: Nothing lasts forever. A coda to Big Finish #91: Circular Time - Autumn, by Paul Cornell.

Recced because: There isn't enough good Nyssa fic in the world (unless it's all hiding from me) and this is possibly my very favourite. Please don't be put off by the fact it's tied to one of her audios, I do think it can stand on its own. Ponygirl, whether intentionally or not, has managed to put all the major points of the audio into the fic so I think it's quite easy to follow. And obviously, if you've heard Circular Time and enjoyed it, this fic is a must. It continues on from part 3 of that audio in being a lovely look at Nyssa and her grief for her whole people and planet, something the show doesn't really go into at all. Five and Nyssa are absolutely spot on in it and given the new series, the irony of the Doctor comforting someone else on the loss of their entire planet probably isn't lost on anyone.
