Gioia’s Rec:
It’s angsty.  And I’m recommending it.  THAT should convey how awesome it is.  No?  Well, here’s something more: it involved the 11th Doctor.  As you should be able to tell, I don’t read/rec fics involving the 11th Doctor.  (Eleven’s truly great, but I’m still in “End of Time” mourning over my Doctor. 😉 )

But this fic needs to be rec’ed for its brilliant timey-wimey-ness, its beautiful and abiding love, and because it made me bawl so much that I must share the misery the beauty.

Plan on crying for the first half of the story, but then plan on it all getting better.  This makes some things about Series 5 and 6 much easier for me to handle, honestly.  I found it very therapeutic for me as a Ten/Rose and Nine/Rose shipper.  It helped me find some needed insight into what it is to have a heart as big as the Doctor’s, and how his various regenerations impact that huge ability to love.

Just go read it. You’ll be glad you did.
