I just want to share a wonderful story that impressed me so much I've reread it twice to savor the beautiful language and the episode-perfect dialogue.  Night Terrors by Lyricwritesprose is a vignette, a character sketch of Rory and the Eleventh Doctor. My summary of the "plot" would be: "After the events of The Doctor's Wife, Rory has nightmares.  He talks to the Doctor about them."

The truth is, not much happens in this story.  That's not the point.  It's a brilliant portrait of Rory Williams, who describes himself as "quite ordinary, really" despite all of the extraordinary things that have happened to him.  It's also a portrait of the Doctor as seen through Rory's eyes.  I lovelovelove authors who understand that the Doctor is an alien.  However kind and compassionate he may be, however much he cares for us humans, he is not like us.

A sample under the cut. . . )


There's also some reference to Rory's Roman memories, which is another favorite theme of mine.

Lyricwritesprose doesn't appear to be on LJ or Dreamwidth, only on the Teaspoon.  Pop over there and read this magnificent story, and if you like it even a fraction as much as I did, leave a review.

A/N:
This was written as a stocking stuffer for [livejournal.com profile] canaana  in the fandom stocking comm.  It was meant to be a quick little ficlet, but the Muse had other ideas.  This fic contains no spoilers for the Christmas special, but readers who watched it may wonder about certain details.  I conceived of the basic premise of this fic and was halfway through writing it before A Christmas Carol aired. Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] yamx  for the last-minute beta, and to members of the Doctor Who Britpicking comm for certain details, including the title.  Additional author's note at end.
