Characters: Tenth Doctor, OFC

Summary: Kate Stowe's seen a lot of strange problems come up at the Genius Bar, but this one qualifies as the strangest she's seen yet... Presenting a bit of shameless insanity, featuring the Doctor, a race of aliens with quite inconvenient taste, and several unorthodox ways to break your iPod's warranty. (In other words: crackfic ahead!)

While the summary calls it crackfic, it isn't really cracky, not by Doctor Who standards. What we do have is the Doctor seen from another point of view; an original character with a strong narrative voice. I knew from the first couple of paragraphs that I was going to like this character and this story, and I did. Not just the OC, but the juxtaposition of the "ordinary" and the weird; those who can open their eyes, and those who cannot.

And some rather strange aliens.

Missing scenes from the end of "Deathly Hallows", and some epilogues.

This brought tears to my eyes at the end. For anyone who felt that there wasn't enough, that we weren't told enough of what happened in the battle and afterwards, read this.
