Story: And at the End, a Garden
Author: AstroGirl
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 1762
Author's Summary: A regenerating Ten makes a stop in an Aztec garden.
Characters/Pairings: Tenth Doctor, Cameca
Warnings: None

Recced because: This fic was just posted two days ago, but as soon as I read it, I knew I wanted to rec it here. As we know, the Tenth Doctor held off his regeneration and went on a goodbye tour, visiting past friends and companions. This fic tells us why he did that -- and the reason given is both obvious (in retrospect) and brilliantly insightful. Then, the author gives us a wonderful interaction between Ten and the person who is arguably the first human the Doctor ever loved: Cameca from the First Doctor episode "The Aztecs." It's sweet, and melancholy, and beautifully written. And, it takes place in a garden.

Story: From the First -- Oh, Those Human Women!
Author: Sigyn
Rating: Teen, some adult themes
Word Count: 7,214
Author's Summary: As the 10th Doctor considers his possible future, or lack thereof, with Martha Jones, he is drawn to remember his very first human lover -- the Aztec woman Cameca. What is it about human women? Assumes familiarity with Gridlock and general NuWho history.
Characters/Pairings: The Doctor (10th), The Doctor (1st), Martha Jones, Cameca, Brannigan, Valerie
Warnings: As the author notes - sex scenes, but nothing graphic.

Recced because: Typically, sex scenes tend to make me blush and hide like an eight-year-old under the duvet. If they're tastefully done, I can dig 'em - I may be immature, but stronger stuff lurks beneath!

Anyhow, this is one of the best stories I've come across where sexual themes are the main focus of the plot. The First Doctor, by most accounts not the first to pop into mind where such scenes are concerned, manages to be delightfully accurate and adorable. Cameca is feisty. Martha cuddles kitten-babies. Kitten-babies. One of my favourite fics on Teaspoon.

Story: Ten Times The Doctor (Almost) Got Hitched
Author: vvj5
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 5549
Author's summary:You wouldn't believe how difficult it is for a passing Time Lord not to get married to famous historical women completely by accident. Seriously. Happens all the time.
Characters/Pairings: *takes deep breath* First Doctor/Cameca, Second Doctor/Mary, Queen of Scots, Third Doctor/Jane Austen, Fourth Doctor/Florence Nightingale, Fifth Doctor/Joan of Arc, Sixth Doctor/Boadicea, Seventh Doctor/Charlotte Bronte, Eighth Doctor/Christabel Pankhurst, Ninth Doctor/Elizabeth Woodville, Tenth Doctor/Elizabeth I, Ben, Polly, The Brigadier, Liz Shaw, Sarah Jane Smith, Harry Sullivan, Tegan Jovanka, Vislor Turlough, Evelyn Smythe, Benny Summerfield, Charley Pollard, Rose Tyler, Jack Harkness
Warnings: Real Person/Fictional Person Het

Recced because: Just knowing that this fic exists fills me with unholy glee. It's the sort of thing that I was hoping someone would write after last fall's Children In Need preview scene and I was so happy to find out that someone did. Every single one of the ten scenes that make up this fic is brilliant in its own way and every single character is drawn as if from life. The Sixth Doctor bit is especially hilarious. I also loved the Seventh Doctor bit for Benny's diary entries and the Third Doctor bit for containing one of my own personal ships. They're all good bits, however. Highly recommended for everyone.

Story: Love's Cocoa
Author: The Secretive Bus
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 868
Author's Summary: Cameca had loved the Doctor. If only he'd loved her back.
Characters/Pairings: One/Cameca
Warnings: None.

Recced because: One/Cameca from "The Aztecs" are one of those lovely, obscure pairings that sadly never get any love. This is beautiful.

Story: Lady of the Flowers
Author: [livejournal.com profile] amy_wolf
Rating: Adult
Word Count: 746
Author's Summary: Cameca wore flowers in her hair every day after the Doctor left.
Characters/Pairings: Nine/Cameca
Warnings: Explicit Sex

Recced because: Expanded from a kinkmeme story, this is a gorgeous, tender portrait of both. It's sweet and a bit sad as Nine and Cameca find an unusual connection as they face the ends of their civilizations.
