Title: "The Orchid Thief" by leviathan0999
Pairing: None

Author Website: This is the author's only story on A Teaspoon and an Open Mind.
NOTE: The reccer has never actually read the Nero Wolfe novels. She's only seen the A&E television series with Timothy Hutton.

Why this must be read: From the note by Archie Goodwin that begins this tale, I suspected that the story was going to be wibbly-wobbly-timey-whimey in nature. When the titular orchid first appears in Nero Wolfe's sanctuary, I guessed that the Doctor was leaving it as a thank you gift; except that the Doctor had messed up the timeline and was leaving the thank you gift *before* Wolfe had done something for the Doctor. (Given how much the Doctor's driving sucks, this is entirely within the realm of possibility.) This writer, however, has created an even *more* complicated, time-warping plot than I could have imagined.

The author has an engaging narrative style, which, importantly, helps to keep the Doctor Who fan's attention, since it is a long time before any Whoniverse characters appear--unless, of course, you count the TARDIS as a "character," since she is both seen and heard early on in this story.

Because somewhere, somehow, in some corner of the multiverse, you always knew there had to be a refuge...
