Gioia’s Rec:
What a fantastic AU take on the Doctor Who Series 4 episode, “Journey’s End!”  Instead of the metacrisis creating another version of the Tenth Doctor, it creates another Nine.  Now, imagine that scene on the beach when Rose gets left with 10.5, except substitute the 9th Doctor, with whom she first fell in love.  Suddenly, the entire scenario is much less angsty and, for me at least, there are a lot fewer conflicted feelings.  It also adds this whole other level to the aspect of the metacrisis Doctor destroying all the Daleks, doesn’t it?  This is a truly spectacular story.
