Story: 45 for a Moment
Author: EllyF
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 645
Author's Summary: We move on, even when we don't want to.
Characters/Pairing:Eleventh Doctor, Donna Noble, Shaun Temple
Warnings: None

The Doctor doesn't deal with loss easily. We saw that in the aftermath of Doomsday, and again after Journey's End. By all accounts, you could say Ten went a bit off the rails after he lost Donna, and while it's never really talked about in explicit detail in canon, I imagine that what happened to her would be the sort of thing to haunt him, and that he would need to reassure himself that she's okay. This short little ficlet explores that idea, as Eleven sneaks a peek at Donna and her family on her 45th birthday. Hold on to your feels!

Story: Escapology
Author: birdsarecalling
Rating: teen
Word Count: 4,794
Author's Summary: Donna Noble's stuck inside her own head. What she needs is a little escapology. (Donna/Jo Grant)
Characters/Pairings: Donna Noble/Jo Grant, Sylvia Grant, Wilfred Mott, Mike Yates, Shaun Temple
Warnings: none

Recced because: This fic is adorable. I feel like 'Donna meets old companion' may be a trope (and one that I've written recently, hm), but this is the defining one of those fics for me. Partly this fic is about Donna coming back from having her memory taken by the Doctor, partly it's about what Jo does as she gets older, and there's a tiny bit in there that's somehow about Mike Yates and is so good. This whole fic is so good - a really nice melding of new and old school Who.

Author's Summary: Donna's begun having terrible headaches, and Shaun struggles to help her.
Characters/Pairings: Donna/Shaun, Wilf, Sylvia
Warnings: None

Recced because: This is one of the sweetest, most poignant Donna fix-it fics I've read, not in the least because it finally gives us a good idea of who Shaun might be, and why Donna would have fallen for him. Shaun is utterly devoted to Donna, and when she starts freezing up and repeating words like "neurohyperbolicencephalostabilizer," he finds a way to help her that no doctor (or Doctor) could. Ultimately, it isn't just Shaun's cobbled-together machine that restores Donna's memories: it's his fierce love for her, and his unwillingness to give up despite his fears and uncertainty.
