Why This Must Be Read: A not-quite-canon consideration of Eleven, just before he regenerates. While Clara’s of course there, his revisiting of earlier companions—especially the Ponds and especially River—is tender and, to me, fits the tone that his actual send-off got quite nicely.

Why This Must Be Read: Fandom is pretty positive that River and Jack know each other somehow and have a great, if at times complex, friendship, and this fic draws that out beautifully—in their friendship with each other as well as their respective relationships with the Doctor. I particularly appreciate the investigation into why neither of them ultimately travels with him full-time.

Why This Must Be Read: This OC stranger’s view of the quartet is kind if confused, and I love the sweet ways she interacts with them, especially while they’re all really trying not to screw up the timeline too much.

Why This Must Be Read: AUs! AUs everywhere! From one of my favorite authors for this ship, this collection is a delightful, clever, and unexpected octet of explorations of the Doctor and River across all sorts of times and places. Enjoy.
