Why This Must Be Read: The Doctor frequently notes that traveling with other immortals is "bad" for him, and for all that River adores him, she's never seemed to disagree on this point. This fic explores what they risk by failing to keep each other in check, losing sight of what it means to be human rather than gods. It's haunting and accurate in all the best ways.

Why This Must Be Read: This wonderfully creative mermaid/siren AU blends mythologies, canon, and original ideas into an incredibly whole, with nods to points throughout Who canon and imagery that will leave you breathless.

Why This Must Be Read: River's absence was strongly felt in the hurried storytelling that was "The Time of the Doctor," and this fic remedies it—with heart, with love, and with a fair dose of sex to boot.
