Why This Must Be Read: I adore River, and "The Husbands of River Song" was an incredible sendoff for the character. This fic is a welcome coda to the episode, taking its time to let her bask in the lengthy "last night" while never forgetting that both characters know it's the end. It's exactly what happened after the credits rolled on Christmas, I'm sure of it.

Why This Must Be Read: This little AU is fairly elegant in its simplicity—a bowtied oddball meets an archeologist with fabulous hair in a park—but it captures the characters beautifully, banter and all, while translating the Whoniverse's otherworldly circumstances neatly into a world that looks more like our own.
