Rating/Warning(s): K+/T
Genre: Pre-ship, Introspection
WIP?: No

Special Rec #: 25

Why This Must Be Read: Set prior to Frankie being a complete bastard. Most of this fic centers on Stella's internal struggle with a sense of futility. Stella is usually such a strong character, someone everyone leans on, so it is neat to see her being the shaky one. Mac points out to her - she needs someone who can really see her.

Why This Must Be Read: This one-shot is an outside look at Rose & the Doctor. It is a powerful look at the couple...a platonic couple that should really be more. I have trouble really finding words to explain why I enjoy it so much, but I think its the way it emphasizes the connection between these two. There is very little dialogue, but its still a fulfilling scene.
