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.
