Fic Rec - Upstream  
Title: Upstream
Author: [livejournal.com profile] prochytes
Fandom: Doctor Who/Firefly
Rating: PG-13. Angst; dark themes; mind screw; (non-graphic) violence
Characters/Pairing: Eleven (DW); River Tam (Firefly)
Word Count: 2051
A/N: Small spoilers for Firefly, down to and including Serenity

Why I like love it: It's absolutely amazing. Without spoiling it, the plot is the Doctor coming to visit River while she's in the Academy. It's told in reverse - River is remembering the future, and the Doctor is travelling back in time to find out why. Eleven and River's voices are spot on. It's one of those fics you keep reading and rereading - it's only by the second time through that you notice all of the little clues woven throughout the fic. A must-read.
