Why This Must Be Read: This little ficlet knits together River's familiarity with all of the Doctor's selves and her knowledge that most of them don't ever meet her with the pain and anguish of "The Night of the Doctor" minisode and the choices that Eight makes in the face of the Time War. The two don't exchange a single word here, but you get a sense of how thoroughly they'd understand each other if they had.
