Story: Strings Attached
Author: [livejournal.com profile] beshter
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 80,918 (and counting)
Author's Summary: Pete Tyler thought he was agreeing to making his entire life better. Sometimes gifts come with strings attached. When his entire life is turned upside down, fate gives him a second chance at pulling it together.
Characters/Pairings: Jackie Tyler (both universes), Pete Tyler (Pete’s world), Mickey Smith, Rose Tyler, the Tenth Doctor
Warnings: None by author (character death mentioned)
Recced because: I’m taking a chance by rec’ing this,  because it’s unfinished. However, there are 22 chapters, which gives you plenty to chew on until the final chapters come — and the author appears to have a schedule, which means this fascinating story should be completed. I certainly hope so, because this tackles one of the fascinating untold stories in the Whoniverse; how did the Pete Tyler of Pete’s World come to be so different from the lovable, but unsuccessful Pete Tyler of our world? [livejournal.com profile] beshter has a knack I love in writers: they build a believable world, they create characters who act believably, and they act only on the information they know. We, as readers, know what’s happening and why, but the writer’s skill is such that we want to watch this Pete (always one of my favorite characters) think his way through his good fortune, through invasion, through losing one Jackie and into loving a new Jackie.

A taste:
This was not the life that Pete Tyler had signed up for )

Story: The Endless Doctor
Author: Beshter
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 14067
Author's Summary:The Doctor's life has been shaped from the beginning by these strange beings known as the Endless. All find the Doctor fascinating and each leave an impression on his very long journey. A crossover between Doctor Who and The Sandman comics by DC/Vertigo Comics.
Characters/Pairings: The Doctor (10th), The Doctor (11th), The Doctor (1st), The Doctor (4th), The Doctor (8th), The Doctor (9th), The Doctor (Fatal Death)
Warnings: None.

Recced because: My favourite comic series, the one that re-kindled my interest in comics after years of barely paying them any attention, has to be Neil Gaiman's Sandman, in which the main characters are the Lord of Dreams and other anthropomorphic personifications. Here Beshter finds reasons for The Doctor to meet them. It's a very effective fusion of these universes, as a series of excellent vignettes. It's the first time this author's been recced here, I suspect it won't be the last.
