Summary: Stuck on Earth with River Song, the Doctor has to cope with domesticity and marriage. It goes about as well as you'd expect.

Why This Must Be Read: This is a fantastic little one-shot between Eleven and River, where they are stranded in the 1950s after the TARDIS is hijacked, and they have to make do: as husband and wife. It's light-hearted and fun between them, and it doesn't have the usual intricate, timey-whimey themes as most stories have with this couple. The author picks up on their wonderful chemistry, and their characterizations are brilliant. It's also amusing to see River put herself out there and subtly seduce the Doctor while he's trying to get the TARDIS back. Very fun little story!
