paynesgrey: The Impossible Girl (drwho-clara)
[personal profile] paynesgrey
Story: Lies and Loyalty
Author: Gallifrey Immigrant
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 499
Author's Summary: The wind flows through my hair as I wait. But she's not coming back this time.
Characters/Pairings: Clara Oswald, Me, (Jane Austen)
Warnings: None.

Recced because: I really enjoyed the concept of this fic, especially in Jane Austen's point of view. Even as such a small piece, I really found there was a lot of depth to her encounter with Clara and Me, and it gives really nice fan service to Clara's interest and attraction to Jane, even when it was only a passing line in canon. The ending is very bittersweet in a way, and I like how Clara truly becomes like the Doctor in this, a renegade from the Time Lords, and the cost of Jane's excitement in knowing Clara, she has to lose her memories. A really insightful piece.

Story: Ten Months from December 30th, 1999
Author: Gallifrey Immigrant
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 420
Author's Summary: In hindsight, the choices always feel different.
Characters/Pairings: Grace Holloway, Eighth Doctor
Warnings: None

Recced because: I loved this story and couldn't wait to rec it the moment I read it. It's such a fantastic introspection story on Grace's feelings and thoughts months after she had declined to travel with the Doctor. This fic really portrays some great depth in a sometimes overlooked character, especially a could-have-been companion like Grace.

Story: Revised Memories
Author: Gallifrey Immigrant
Rating: all ages
Word Count: 537
Author's Summary: River stops off to help a little girl who lost her teddy.
Characters/Pairings: River Song
Warnings: None

Recced because: This is such an adorable little character piece for River Song, in more ways than one. It gives good insight on her past too, something we rarely see on the show, and I think it's shaped nicely here. I just like the concept of this, and it's so very much like River to not care about the laws of time and space to help out "a little girl". A cute, enjoyable tale.

Calufrax...we meet again! It has been too long. So, anyway, *reads instructions* I'm going to be sharing 4-10 recs with you over the next two weeks *throws instructions away* and I hope you're going to enjoy all of them as much as I did.

Story: Romana And The Quest Against Boredom
Author: Gallifrey Immigrant
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 1778
Author's Summary: Romana's bored. That cannot do, so she's looking for a solution.
Characters/Pairings: K-9, Romana II, The Doctor (4th)
Warnings: None.

Recced because: Well, you know that thing where I'm kind of obsessed with Four and Romana and indeed Four/Romana? I'm even worse at the moment, because I've recently been re-watching Seasons 16 and 17 for the first time in some time, and I'm sort of falling in love all over again with those crazy kids and their idiosyncratic adventures. As I was recently opining in a venue other than Livejournal, I'm not really convinced "too silly" is ever a bad thing where Doctor Who is concerned, especially not when you have a Doctor and companion combo who do "silly" with such panache.

And I think this fic is a good example of the whole Season 17 vibe, capturing that combination of innocent whimsy and knowing absurdism and, let's not forget, genuine warmth. I'm particularly fond of the dialogue in this, which really does sound like exactly the sorts of things these characters would be coming out with, as Romana sets out to fight her newly acquired state of boredom in as business-like and slightly oblivious a manner as you would expect her to do so. Some good asides in this from K-9 too, but what I really love is the way Four himself impinges (or doesn't impinge) upon the story, embodying the disreputable uncle/irresponsible teacher side of his nature as he decides to let his protégé figure this particular lesson out for herself (she does...sort of).

Anyway, I think it's lovely, and I hope you will too when you go and read it. Right now!
