Recced because: I'm a sucker for hurt/comfort fic. It's my guilty pleasure. Give me angst, beat up the characters, but give me the heart-warming comfort at the end. This story delivers in spades. Adalia Zandra brings a terrifying world to life where the Doctor's senses are stripped away, leaving him nothing but pain. Every aspect of this story is so vivid, so painful, and so real that it practically hurt to see how much pain the Doctor was going through. But it doesn't end there. Adalia then gave me some of the best comfort and the most realistic ways of dealing with the Doctor's losses that I've ever seen. This was a painful, touching, and most of all real story and I recommend it to anyone who loves hurt/comfort fics as much as I do.
