Story: The Eggs of Destruction
Author: Primsong
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 33,461
Author's Summary: The Third Doctor and Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart, searching for a possible Silurian outpost on the Isle of Wight, discover more trouble than they had bargained on when someone begins using the local population of seagulls as weapons.
Characters/Pairings: Third Doctor, Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart, Sergeant Benton, Sea Devils
Warnings: None.

Recced because: One of the (many) things this author excels at is fic that reads like a pitch-perfect missing adventure, and this is certainly no exception. Add to that a carefully researched setting, that it's in effect also a wonderful exploration and celebration of the Doctor and the Brigadier’s relationship, cap it off with a whole lot of punning chapter titles, and, really, the whole thing is just a complete joy from start to finish.

Author: Primsong
Summary: Jo faces a new beginning, content with her choice.
Characters/Pairings: Jo Grant/Cliff Jones
Rating: G
Warnings: None
Recced because: Completely believable story with perfect Jo characterization. This is my headcanon for what happened immediately following “The Green Death.” The perfect happy ending for Jo which also fits perfectly with what we later learn about Jo’s post-Doctor life in “The Sarah Jane Adventures.”
Excerpt: “A finger of dawn slipped through the cracked shutters and touched the crystal, mysterious, complex and beautiful. She blinked at its depths for a moment, then turned away. He'd been a suitor for her time and attention, perhaps, but nothing more. A companion, a friend to travel with, yes, but he would never belong to anyone. He could never have given her this, this wonderfully fulfilling and completely human love.”

Greetings, Calufraxians! Calufractionaters? Er. Anyway. XD I come bearing fanfic recs. I have long fics, short fics, a lot of UNIT fic... mostly happy or comic endings, because that's how I roll.

And, um, two separate Christmas stories? O_O CHRISTMAS IN MAY. Have some fruitcake. ;-)

Story: Acquired Taste
Author: Primsong
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 1473
Author's Summary: It's Christmas time at UNIT, time to enjoy some home-made fruitcake! Or then again, maybe not.
Characters/Pairings: Third Doctor, Jo Grant, Sergeant Benton
Warnings: ...bug squick? (No actual bugs appear. Sorry, I do actually tend to warn for EVERYTHING. *g*)

Recced because: It is awesome. =D First off, Jo is adorkable and also made of win - I love it when Jo gets all righteous at people. She's brilliant. For those who don't know her (yet *g*), she's a cute little five-foot-nothing klutzy blonde who didn't pass her A-levels; she also happens to be an expert escapologist, and passionately idealistic in a cheerful-hippie sort of way. When she gets mad at you it's half like being a bad puppy getting bopped on the nose, and half like being told off by a puppy. And Prim writes her the best of anyone.

Also, Three is classically... Three. I was looking for a word here and all I can come up with is "disdainful eighteenth-century gentleman who actually has no idea what's going on, so he throws cant jargon into the mix at every opportunity". (Oh dear, now I want somebody to write a Georgette Heyer crossover... O_O) With a side of "inherently plushie-able floofy adorkableness", because that after all is what Three is all about. ;-)

This all sounds terribly confusing to New Whovians, doesn't it? Er... there is an awesome girl companion, and the Doctor being silly and incorrigible, and also mockage of fruitcake. Go and read it! It's short, it's funny, it... hadn't been recced yet, if I am honest. That's a recommendation in itself, isn't it? That Prim is so good it's hard to find one of her fics that hasn't yet been recced here. :D

Recced because: It's clever how Primsong ties in the different Doctors and companions and events. It's also a quite ridiculous story - the ridiculousness of it all comes out of the characters and it feels right.

Story: Cake and the Rani
Author: [livejournal.com profile] primsong 
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 11,098
Author's Summary: In which the Master takes up baking, Three disapproves of his culinary planning and Ten loses his britches, with the Rani's help. No TARDISes were harmed in the making of this fic.
Characters/Pairings: Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart, Sergeant Benton, The Doctor (3rd), The Master (Delgado), The TARDIS, UNIT, The Doctor (10th), The Rani and other characters
Warnings: In spite of the worrying implications of the author's summary, surprisingly none

Recced because: I'll be candid right at the outset and admit that I may have had some tangential involvment in inciting this particular fic, or that at any rate I may have been involved in some of the discussions that led to it being incited. A couple of years ago, on a Doctor Who forum that I frequent, a kind of fictional prompt or challenge arose quite by accident from some chance remarks made by members of the forum. To cut a long story short, people started writing humorous fics with one common premise; they all featured Ten, naked, chained to Three by the Master and both of them covered in cake. Despite the worrying potential, I don't think any of these fics veered into the obvious places you might think from that summary. And so a genre was born. Cakefic. And this story remains one of the premier examples.

Now, I don't expect anybody who wasn't a participant to care at all about the previous paragraph, but I still think they should read this fic. Not only does [livejournal.com profile] primsong manage to take a pretty silly prompt indeed and weave from it a decent, lengthy and not wholly frivolous story, but she does it with such a deft touch and affection for all of the disparate characters involved. I think one of the things that I really respond strongly to in Doctor Who fanfic is the sense you get in some stories of the writer's deep, abiding love for the show and its characters, and especially when it's clear that love extends across more than one era of the show without fear or favour or fan-wankiness. And that's what I get when I read this fic. Ten and Three and the Master and the Rani and the UNIT bods are all drawn with such affection and insight into their essential natures. And there are some telling little moments, like Three's wistful realisation when he sees his future self's TARDIS that his own exile isn't forever, or the Rani's businesslike ruthlessness and her spiky relationship with the Master, even if it's Delgado!Master in this instance. And it's pretty funny indeed. And it features Ten naked, chained to Three and covered in cake. So go and read it.

Story: The Shining Furrow
Author: Primsong
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 34,520
Author's Summary: "An out-of-season meteorite in Trelissick, Cornwall, a missing man and missing ferns; Three and Jo have a puzzling, dangerous riddle to solve."
Characters/Pairings: Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart, Jo Grant, Sergeant Benton, The Doctor (3rd)
Warnings: None, unless you count deliberate misappropriation of Tennyson. ;-)

Recced because: It's a "missing-episode"-type UNIT adventure story - with overly complex codenames, Sgt. Benton's coffee and sandwiches, Jo and the Brig being awesome, Three macgyvering widgets out of spare parts, and (as usual, in Primsong's stories) an amazingly clever and original "guest alien of the week" idea.

Also, it's long. I like long. *resists the urge to say "long stories are cool"* ;-) Something to read over the weekend. And it's based on a sonnet by Tennyson; I have no idea how Prim did what she did, but the story fits the poem perfectly. It's fantastic.

(Frankly, I like the poem better now than I did before I read the story. Prim is that mind-bogglingly good. Go on, read it. *smile*)

Characters/Pairings: Jo Grant, Mike Yates, Sergeant Benton, The Doctor (3rd)
Warnings: None

Recced because: July is the perfect time to read Christmas fic. This one mixes up some sweet scenes with Jo and the Third Doctor and the alien, along with some funny scenes as the Doctor plays Santa. It still manages to be just the sort of thing UNIT would get mixed up in as well.

Hi, I’m [livejournal.com profile] lost_spook (vvj5 on Teaspoon), your reccer for this week. I’m a big fan of all eras of our amazingly unique show, and this week’s recs will take us on a journey from a junkyard in 1963 to the opening of the Pandorica in a sort of tour of the show’s history in sidesteps and small moments. (Or: here are some stories I like, anyway.) So - pleased to meet you – now take my hand, and let’s run!

Story: Why, It’s A Police Box!
Author: Primsong
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 1400
Author's Summary:
Characters/Pairings: First Doctor, Susan Foreman
Warnings: None.

Recced because: Primsong takes a tongue-in-cheek look at how it might have been that the TARDIS chose her current form, and how the chameleon circuit came to break. After all, isn’t it true that fifteen year olds (even if they may be Gallifreyan) find their relatives so embarrassing they could die? So Susan objects to the shame of living in a chest freezer in a junkyard, and the Doctor attempts, in an amusing catalogue of alternatives, to find something that will do. And of course, it ends with something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue. The show wouldn’t be quite the same if she had been any other shape, after all.

Story: She Was Always
Author: Primsong

Word Count: 144
Author's Summary: The Doctor does not often lend himself to poetry, but then, there isn't often someone quite this special.
Characters/Pairings: Sarah Jane Smith, the Doctor
Warnings: Might make you cry.

Recced because: Primsong is one of those talented authors who can write good fanfic and good poetry. I've always thought this poem was gorgeous, but now with the loss of Lis Sladen, it's become especially poignant.

Author's Summary: The Master kidnaps Jo to use her for ransom, but gets an earful instead.
Characters/Pairings: Jo Grant, Delgado!Master, Three
Warnings: None

Recced because:

The title is a horrible, awful pun. No, okay, there’s more to it than that: watching the Master slowly being driven off the edge by Jo’s chatter is hilarious. The sheer randomness of stuff Jo manages to talk about is boggling. The Master’s attempts to keep himself sane are mesmerising. You end up feeling a bit sorry for him by the end… after all, it’s not like he ever really had a chance.

Story: Ramona and the Blue Box
Author: Primsong
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 8837
Author's summary: The Doctor finds himself in for an interesting afternoon when he and Romana land on Klickitat Street. Or was it Ramona? Crossover with the classic Beverly Cleary series.
Characters/Pairings: Fourth Doctor, Romana II, Henry Huggins, Ribsy, Ramona Quimby, Beezus Quimby, K9
Warnings: Crossover with Beverly Cleary's Ramona books

Recced because: I have no idea if Beverly Cleary's books ever made it across the pond, but here in the US they've become a cultural institution. Generations of children have grown up reading about Ramona Quimby, her sister Beezus, Henry Huggins, his dog Ribsy, and the rest of the various inhabitants of Klickitat Street. So it's really not surprising that I squee'd out loud when I found this fic: Doctor Who and Beverly Cleary really are two great tastes that go well together. And Primsong blends them together with such skill that you'd have thought Ms Cleary herself stepped in to pen an serial.

Oddly enough, though the fic's really about Ramona (and Romana, who unfortunately gets left behind on Klickitat street by mistake), as far as Cleary canon goes it actually takes place during the Henry Huggins books. Instead of the misunderstood school-age Ramona of the Ramona books, we instead have the bratty little kid of Cleary's early stuff lost inside the TARDIS. Which makes it all the more fun, because there's nothing like little Ramona for causing trouble. As you will see.

Story: Reciprocal Quandaries
Author: Primsong
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 31,492
Author's Summary:
Characters/Pairings: Second Doctor, Jamie McCrimmon, Polly Wright, Ben Jackson

Recced because: I can’t believe it hasn’t been recced before. (I’ve been checking again and again, but it doesn't seem to have been.) It’s one of my very favourite fics, produced for the seemingly all-round-amazing ficathon [livejournal.com profile] tardis_gen last year. Primsong has a knack of capturing the feel of an era, and produces what feels like a missing episode (for a TARDIS team whose episodes are mainly lost, so making up for things just a bit), with the wonderful backdrop of the 1900 Paris Exposition, unlikely doubles (in the true tradition of black and white episodes) and villainous skulduggery. It may be long, but it never feels it. It’s gone, like candyfloss, far too soon. I meant to try and be a little less obvious in my recs this week, but this one is just too good to miss. (Plus, it was written for a gen ficathon, but there's still the perfectly in-keeping bit of Ben/Polly. And Ben/Polly equals awwwness and ♥)

Story: Knowing Her Place
Author: Primsong
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 1,364
Author's Summary: That old Type 40 never did fit in. Now it would never be of use again, such a shame, such a shame.
Characters/Pairings: the TARDIS
Warnings: None

Recced because: The Doctor wasn't the only rebel who left Gallifrey – his ship is every bit as rebellious. And here, in a vignette in which an arrogant Time Lord and a TARDIS technician discuss just what is to be done about this very difficult Type 40, Primsong shows exactly why the TARDIS is the perfect match for her pilot: a shared spirit of adventure. I don't always care for stories in which the TARDIS' thoughts are expressed in complete sentences, but that convention works quite well in this story; the TARDIS is the unspoken participant in a conversation about whether she should be scrapped, and her yearning for a different life, and willingness to wait for the right person to share it with, come through perfectly.

Warnings: None.

recced because: A good crackfic, as I point out time and again, is good for the soul. This is a bunch of drabbles and ficlets that will do wonders to whoever reads them! The Tenth Doctor, as we all know, has companion... issues. It's only logical he'll go scavenge his ex-companions' children as his companions, when you think about it! Needless to say, their parents are less than impressed. Each and every drabble/ficlet in this series is the definition of hilarious.

Story: Too Long in a Cage
Author: Primsong or [livejournal.com profile] primsong on LJ
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 1336
Author's Summary: "Did they really think they could hold him? Four vignettes."
Characters/Pairings: First Doctor, Second Doctor, Third Doctor, Fourth Doctor
Warnings: None.

Recced because: Primsong is one of the best Classic Who writers in the fandom. Most of her stories have already been recced on this comm, but the ones that haven't took me all day trying to decide which one to rec!

I finally settled on "Too Long in a Cage", her exploration of the Doctor's personality over his first four lives. Four short vignettes follow him from leaving Gallifrey, through "The War Games" and through his exile, to "Robot" and his new discovery of freedom.

"Too Long in a Cage" is another of those stories every fan should read - from those who saw Troughton's lost stories on first run, to the youngest Tennant fangirls, and everyone in between - anyone who loves the Doctor will enjoy Primsong's loving portrayal of his early years in this fic.

(And if you're not yet familiar with Classic Who, there's no better introduction than Primsong! I know whereof I speak; I was quite prepared to dislike the Third Doctor till I got hold of her writing. And just look at me now! *huggles plushie!Three*)

Rating: All ages.
Warnings: None.
Word Count: 9857.
Summary: In which the Second Doctor, Jamie & Victoria find an old acquaintance meddling once again.

Recced Because: It's a delight to read. This fic features a timelord I won't name specifically, but whose name rhymes with 'Nettling Skunk.' He's completely lovely in a slightly defective way. My experience of the Second Doctor's era is very thin, and I haven't seen The Time Meddler but I don't think that these facts have impaired my enjoyment of this story at all. The characters sell this story. Nothing of great moment happens; it's a fun, character-driven read.

Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 283
Author's Summary: He's going to be here a long, long time.
Characters/Pairings: Third Doctor
Warnings: None

Recced because: When I think of the Third Doctor, I think of him running around with all the marvelous people of UNIT, helping them defend the Earth from the never-ending crop of alien invaders. What I often forget, though, is why he wound up working as UNIT's scientific advisor in the first place: because he was exiled, because his TARDIS was forcibly broken, and because his mind was altered to deny him the knowledge he needed to fix it, knowledge that he used to have. This story skillfully shows those feelings of exile and loss in less than 300 words, and it's heartbreaking. No matter how many times I read this story, the emotional impact of it never lessens.

Author's Summary: Even the most improbable alliances can occur with the application of enough snow.
Characters/Pairings: Third Doctor, Jo Grant, The Master
Warnings: None

Recced because: This is almost too lovely a fic for words. Jo Grant, with the Third Doctor and the Master trapped by snow and awaiting rescue from UNIT. The result? Much bickering, competition, scheming, fluffiness and humour. There’s some great characterisation with all three being exactly as seen on screen while the Master’s approach to a domestic situation is such fun I hadn‘t had nearly enough of it before he reverted to his usual villainy. And Jo's response to her current housemates' rivalry is great. Good Delgado!Master fics are hard to come by, so don’t miss this.

Hello! I'm stellastars and this week I'll be pointing you in the direction of just a few of the fics I have enjoyed at Teaspoon.

Characters/Pairings: Barbara Wright, Ian Chesterton, Susan Foreman, First Doctor
Warnings: None

Recced because: Simply put, this fic feels like it should have been an episode during the 1963-64 season. The characterizations are spot-on, especially in the dialogue and the interactions between characters. (Plus, there is a lovely bit of Barbara/Ian shippiness!) The plot is well-developed, well-written, and captivating. Even the pacing of the story feels like a classic serial: when the action breaks at a chapter's end, you half expect the title of next week's adventure to appear and the episode's credits to roll. The only significant difference between the classic show and this fic, is that Primsong has the opportunity to write "in color" and uses it to brilliant effect. Whether you're a fan of the original team TARDIS or more partial to New Who, the skill with which this story was crafted makes it an absolute pleasure to read.
