Story: Tell Me About Your Mother (The Slightly Freudian Remix)
Author: Elliptic Eye
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 1516
Author's Summary: A defining moment wherein a true friend helps the young Theta Sigma look deep within himself and understand the ways in which he is a wanker.
Characters/Pairings: Theta (pre-series Doctor), Delgado!Master, arguably Doctor/Master

Recced because: Elliptic Eye has written some very funny things - this is one of them. If you like jokes about the Doctor's teenage angst and bad poetry and/or jokes about the Master being a loser, you've come the right place (although, to be fair to Delgado, he comes off by far the better of the two in this). I also think the choice to turn a supposed therapy session on Gallifrey into a comedy skit was inspired - and, on that note, I think this is a very clever remix. The original is about a totally different character (although no names are given, so it's a fair cop swap) mentoring the young Doctor - and is without so much piss taking. But I like the piss taking. And I'm probably going to rec a more serious one tomorrow.

Author's summary: Theta and Koschei reap the benefits of complete miscommunication.
Characters/pairings: Theta/Koschei
Warnings: Graphic sex

Recced because: This is labelled as PWP, but there's a lot more to it than that; it's certainly the most in depth PWP I've read in a long while, and it has the most fantastic dialogue, and yet it has the most simple premise: Theta and Koschei are studying, then they have sex, then they go back to studying. It's simple yet perfect. And the sex? Well, it's just so in character with Theta so eager to please in any way he can.

Story: Things to Do on Gallifrey When You're Bored
Author: Joan Milligan
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 1,834
Author's Summary: Theta and Koschei (and Ushas) have a lot of time to kill.
Characters/Pairings: The Doctor, The Master, The Rani (all Academy-era)
Warnings: None

Recced because: If the Doctor, the Master, and the Rani were trouble after graduation, just imagine what they got up to before they left the Academy. Bored college students find all sorts of inappropriate things to occupy themselves: computer hacking ... dorm room redecoration ... casual sex ... TARDIS-building. (Okay, that last one definitely didn't happen at my college, but everything else was awfully familiar.) This is a wry character study that points out how little difference there is between extracurricular interests and full-time occupations, at least for these three Time Lords, and though I don't often read Academy-era fic, this is one of my favorites.

Story: Stories You Don't Tell
Author: Amy Wolf
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 2,909
Author's Summary: She was simply the wrong mother for the wrong son.
Characters/Pairings: Original Character, the Doctor (pre-series)
Warnings: None

Recced because: Why I don't mind the half-human bit from the TV Movie: stories like this that take a throw-away line and give us a thoughtful, detailed backstory to go with it, along with an intriguing take on what might make the Doctor tick. And a story about the failures and frustrations of motherhood hits me in the gut in a really personal way. The story may be short, but the author packs such detail and emotion into it that I'm haunted by it long after I've read it.
