Author's Summary: After being left at Bad Wolf Bay, Rose and the Human Doctor drive back to London together, growing closer and finding adventure along the way.

Recced Because: If you've read my scribblings on the Teaspoon, you know what I have been writing. This one was one of the first post JE fics I ever read, also one of the best, and the only one that's not been Recced yet. It's a longer one, but that should make up for missing a couple days.

Characters: Jake Simmonds, Jackie Tyler, Pete Tyler, Rose Tyler, and the Tenth Doctor Duplicate.

Story: And Then The TARDIS Fell Into Pete’s World
Author: elisi
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 14042
Author's Summary: The TARDIS falls into Pete’s World. Stuff happens.
Characters/Pairings: Amy/Rory, 10.5/Rose, Eleven, River, the Tyler family
Warnings: none

Recced because:
As full of bubbly goodness as any fine crack!fic, this story also doubles as an excellent character study and exercise in closure. The plot, as described in the title, is basically an excuse to throw together characters unlikely to ever meet in canon, stir them up and see what happens. The result is hilariously satisfying.

And that is my final rec of the week – I’ve had a great time finding a variety of stories and hopefully was able to provide something for everyone to enjoy.

Hello! I'm [livejournal.com profile] stellastars and I'm excited to be reccing here at [livejournal.com profile] calufrax again this week. I'll be sharing some of the stories that have caught my attention, including a mixture of Classic and New Who, Torchwood, and SJA. To get us started this week, here's a bit of humor to brighten your Monday!

Story: Possibilities, or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bananas
Author: rosa_acicularis / [livejournal.com profile] rosa_acicularis
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 13,660
Author's Summary: Rose Tyler lives the life fantastic, her feet on the ground and her head in the stars. A Pete's World fic. With bananas.
Characters/Pairings: Jackie Tyler, Jake Simmonds, Mickey Smith, Pete Tyler, Rose Tyler, OC, The Doctor (10th), Rose/Ten, Jake/Mickey
Warnings: None
Note: Though finished recently, this fic was begun before Series 4 aired. It contains spoilers and canon only through The Runaway Bride.

Recced because: This fic is LOL-funny and laughter makes the start of any week better. The premise of the story is hilarious, there's a fun Jake/Mickey subplot, and Rose's younger brother (author-created and named "Reggie") adds humor that only an eight-year old could bring. Plus, with phrases like The mysterious bananary continued the language itself will put smiles on faces. (Just try saying the word "bananary" and see if it doesn't make you grin!) But this story is more than laughs, too. As the tale progresses and the culprit behind the bananary revealed, the reader sees a Rose who has matured as an individual: she's built a life for herself without the Doctor and has a firm sense of her place in Pete's world. This well-developed characterization gives the story substance and (combined with the humor) makes for an incredibly satisfying read. I hope it will brighten your day as much as it did mine!

Story: Monday's Child
Author: Palmetto
Rating: All Ages
Author's summary: There's always that period of adjustment when a person first becomes a parent.
Characters/Pairings: alt!Pete Tyler, Rose, Jackie
Warnings: none
Word Count: ~920 words

Recced because: This is a great little look at a minor character who has more significance than he's generally given: the Pete of Pete's World, who has regained a wife who's not his wife, and especially, an adult daughter who is so much like him, but isn't his at all. As palmetto says, they're a bit of a Frankenstein family, and she does a great job of exploring what Pete's thoughts might be, his adjustment to a situation where he loves his daughter in near terrifying ways, despite not knowing how to show it. Quiet and careful, this is a satisfying fill-in of canon.
