nonelvis: (DW blue TARDIS)

Story: Old Friends
Author: Pendragon
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 5,107
Author's Summary: Ian Chesterton and Wilfred Mott are friends through the years.
Characters/Pairings: Ian/Barbara, Wilf, Donna

Recced because: Why did it never occur to me that Wilf and Ian would be contemporaries? Thank goodness it occurred to Pendragon, though, or we wouldn't have this lovely story in which Ian and Wilf immediately bond and form a lasting friendship. The character voices are spot-on, and honestly, re-reading the story just now so I could write the rec still fills me with joy, even if there are occasional sad moments, just as there are in anyone's life. But those moments are that much easier to deal with when you have a friend who understands you – and fortunately, Ian and Wilf do.

Story: TARDIS Creche
Author: Pendragon
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 2445
Author's Summary: The Doctor has the headache of a lifetime when his former companions are turned into children.
Characters/Pairings: The Doctor (12th), Clara Oswin Oswald, lots of cameos from many former companions
Warnings: None

Recced because: Since the last fic was kind of sad, here's one that extremely cute. i was initially unsure which of Pendragon's works to rec, but kept coming back to this one in particular. While the trope of 'companions being turned into children' may seem like a simple concept, this author handles it well by making the dialogue fit each character. This fic will almost certainly make you smile. :)

Title: Lovesick
Author: Pendragon
Rating: all ages
Word Count: 1402
Characters/Pairings: Ian Chesterton/Barbara Wright
Authors's summary: Ian had planned a wonderful date for Barbara. There's just one problem- it's on a boat and Ian gets seasick.
Warnings: none

Recced because: Since the last fic I recced was a sad one, this rec is the opposite- a very happy moment of two companions living happily ever after, post-Doctor. This is an adorable piece of shippy Ian/Barbara fluff that captures their playful and loving relationship wonderfully. If you love Ian & Barbara, (and if you've seen any of their episodes you probably do!) then this fic is guaranteed to put a smile on your face and leave you feeling all warm & fuzzy! :D

To lighten the mood for the last rec of my stint, another First era story but one that is fun and a bit tongue-in-cheek and a bit bittersweet in its examination of old TV/film in general.

Title: Movie Night
Author: Pendragon
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 2177
Author's Summary: Lights out! Film rolling! It's classic movie night in the TARDIS.
Characters/Pairings: First Doctor, Steven Taylor, Vicki
Warnings: None

Recc'ed Because: It's just a fun and very cute scene. It would seem to work as with Eleven and the Ponds as it does with Steven, Vicki and One. There is some self-referential irony and a bittersweet nod in there as well, considering how many of the First Doctor episodes were lost.

Story: Back to School
Author: Pendragon
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 7470
Author's Summary: Clyde and Rani end up at Coal Hill School on a foggy November day, and the course of history is unravelling around them.
Characters/Pairings: Barbara Wright, Ian Chesterton, Susan Foreman, Clyde Langer, Mr. Smith, Rani Chandra, Sarah Jane Smith
Warnings: None

Recced because: I like stories which mix characters from wildly different eras of the Doctor's story. This one plunges Clyde and Rani, from The Sarah Jane Adventures, into the very first Doctor Who story, with potentially catastrophic timey-wimey results.

Story: Last Stop, White City
Author: Pendragon
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 2,003
Author's Summary: Fifty years since returning home, Ian and Barbara recreate their first ever date.
Characters/Pairings: Barbara/Ian

Recced because: I've been catching up on Classic Who episodes I haven't watched before, which included most of Ian and Barbara's run. Their jubilant tour of London at the end of "The Chase" is one of the shippiest scenes I've ever seen, and I think it's completely fair for fic authors to treat that as the couple's first date, as Pendragon does here. Fifty years after Ian and Barbara returned to Earth in a Dalek ship, they re-visit all the places they celebrated that day: Trafalgar Square, the Thames Embankment, and even a city bus. It's a joyful, romantic story that left me as giddy as Ian and Barbara were, and hopefully will do the same for you.

Story: The Divine Feast of Akhaten
Author: Pendragon
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 2954
Author's Summary: The Doctor takes Susan to Akhaten.
Characters/Pairings: Susan Foreman, First Doctor
Warnings: None

Recced because: This is the story of how the Doctor and Susan ended up on Akhaten. It's really interesting to see how different he acts to when he visits with Clara. It's great characterisation as to what he and Susan were like before they spent a few months living in London in the 1960s.

Hello and welcome to another week of fan fiction picking here on Calufrax ! I am James or ‘Derek Metaltron’, your guide for the next few days. This is the first time I’ve volunteered to do this selection picking and I hope that I can point your way to some quality fiction – I happen to be a fan of every era of Doctor Who and its numerous spin-offs so you can expect some nice variety in material on key, ranging from beloved authors to one or two I think have never been featured before and deserve a look in! And as always, try and leave a nice review for them! :)

We kick proceedings off with some fun between the original pairing in Doctor Who – Ian/Barbara!

Story: The Gentle Art of Seduction
Author: Pendragon
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 1477
Author's Summary: Ian and Barbara’s attempts at historical sexual role-playing don’t go quite according to plan.
Characters/Pairings: Ian/Barbara
Warnings: Only very mild sexual references despite the summary.

Recced because: This is an author who writes Ian and Barbara brilliantly and it shows, plus seeing the lives of the TARDIS Companions after their departure is always fun, particularly in light of Russell’s recent reveal into their lives in SJA’s Death of the Doctor. Plus it references all the various historical periods Ian and Barbara visited in a flirty humorous way. It was actually in this slot a tough pick between this and Pendragon’s other great Ian/Barbara fic ‘The TARDIS Meddler’, also worth a look. I would love to see this author do some more First Doctor era fiction in the future!
