Story: Other Days
Author: aralias
Rating: all ages
Word count: 3569
Characters: Jackson Lake, Simm!Master
Summary: There were days when Jackson Lake woke up safe in the knowledge that he was Jackson Lake, mathematics teacher, friend to Rosita, and father of Frederick Lake. Then, there were other days.
Warnings: none

Recced because: Even though I was unfamiliar with Jackson Lake, I immediately fell into the narrative. The story is tightly written, using Jackson to give an outsider's perspective on the Master. Jackson/ the Doctor is a great character and his interactions with the Master were witty and smart. The ending packs a particular punch.
Oh, and the remixed drabble, linked in the author's note, is also very much worth reading.

Author summary: It was time to accompany the Doctor back to his TARDIS.
Characters: Jackson Lake, The Doctor (10th)

Recced because:
Well, first of all, how many stories feature a pairing between Ten and Jackson Lake? I haven't run across many, but it makes perfect sense to me-- they formed a very close bond in a brief amount of time. After all, if Jackson hadn't had other obligations, he might well have wound up travelling in the TARDIS. This story is a nice coda to "The Next Doctor," which fills in something we didn't see onscreen, but which seems quite believable. I love Jackson, and this story, which is from his POV, really manages to get across his formal speech patterns, his loss and grief, and his heartfelt concern for the Doctor's all-too-evident pain. It's a well-written and touching little piece about two wounded people seeking comfort from one another.
