Story: John Chesterton, Time Lord
Author: paranoidangel
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 616
Author's Summary: The Doctor finds out something about Ian and Barbara's son. Spoilers for When a Good Man Goes to War and Let's Kill Hitler.
Characters/Pairings:
Barbara Wright, Ian Chesterton, John Chesterton, The Doctor (11th)
Warnings: None.

Recced because: I really like Eleven, and I've enjoyed the last couple serieses. But there's definitely some new canon coming up that has confusing implications for the old series (as usual, with Who). On the one hand, contradictions make for a somewhat dissonant viewing experience. On the other hand, it gives rise to fics like this one, which follow the implications to their natural conclusion.

Story: Sing-Along Songs (The “You Better Look Out For Mr Stork” Duet)
Author: biichan
Rating: All Ages
Author's summary: Johnny and the TARDIS make music together.
Characters/Pairings: John Chesterton, the TARDIS, Barbara, Ian, Ten, Tegan
Warnings: none
Word Count: ~1,500

Recced because: This is a terrific example of a remix that really works. The original is Tigerkat's excellent Listening (previously recced on Calufrax here). This story is a wonderful, lovely take on the original, teasing out different aspects and full of lightness and love. The different POVs on display – the TARDIS' in particular, but also little Johnny and Tegan's – are perfectly done, and the story is full of great little details, like the TARDIS' joy at the new life being created inside her, the moon landing get-together/reunion (especially "Aunt Dodobird"!), and even the Inferno gets a mention. It's touching and terrific work.
