Aaand I fear I have only four recs for you this week, O tolerant Calufraxians. *ducks vegetables* I could have sworn I had five! But when I double-checked, one of them (and my favorite of the lot, if I could pick a favorite - TigerKat's Torchwood/Howl's Moving Castle crossover What Planet Are You From?
) had already been recced! I don't know how I missed that the first time; I maintain that some timey-wimey reccer snuck it in when I wasn't looking. ;P
Anyway. Last fic of the week!Story: A Ghost Story for ChristmasAuthor: JJPORRating:
All AgesWord Count:
It's Christmastime; a time for family, and memories, and ghosts, even if you're the Doctor. Especially if you're the Doctor.Characters/Pairings:
Third Doctor, Delgado!Master, Jo Grant, Sgt Benton, Mike Yates, Liz Shaw, Brig/Doris, UNITWarnings:
Here is a nice long story suitable for weekend reading. (I swear I meant to post it Friday evening, but Life intervened. :P) It's another Christmas story, peripherally; it's also a Brigadier family story, and a full-cast UNIT story, and one of those fabulous Delgado!Master missing episodes that JJ does best of anybody.
Also, it is ALL of the timey-wimey, in the best possible way. I love how every one of the OCs in this story, both timey-wimey-stuff-related and, um, not, is so very thoroughly characterized. I would read remixes of this story from everybody's point of view; if it were on the telly, I would icon it and quote it and write fic of it; to summarize, it is an excellent story and you should read it. If you are a New Whovian, all you need to know is that the Doctor is trapped on earth and cranky about it, and that UNIT are (mostly) not evil but he snarks at them anyway. Also, Liz and Jo are both
awesome companions and they both get to kick arse here. WIN.
