Story: Past the Last Exit
Author: livii
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 1111
Author's Summary: "She can't be tamed," the Doctor says, "and she might not stay." Hex tries to love her anyway.
Characters: Ace McShane, Hex Schofield, The Doctor (7th)

Recced Because: Hex was new to me, when I first read Past the Last Exit, but Livii artfully brings him to life and Ace and Hex together, while honoring Ace's independence and her life with the Doctor.

Story: Wanted: Human Woman
Author: Nostalgia
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 1004
Author's Summary: Post-LoTL crackfic, as the Doctor sets out to get a companion properly this time.
Characters: The Doctor (10th)

Recced Because: A companion-seeking Doctor writes a personal ad, which is much more difficult than he expects. The Doctor's inner monologue is particularly entertaining and, once again, the author crams a lot of laughs into a short piece of fiction.

Story: Altered States
Author: [profile] hhertzof 
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 2752
Author's Summary: Why would Sarah suddenly decide to get married? Luke is determined to find out the answer before he ends up with an unexpected stepparent.
Characters: Sarah Jane, Luke, Clyde, Maria, Alan, The Doctor (10th), Turlough

Recced Because: A fun, endearing, and cracky story deserves to be appreciated. In Altered States, Sarah Jane announces her wedding without sharing the groom's identity. Clyde, Luke, Maria, and Alan attempt to solve the mystery, while the Doctor arrives to cause a disruption.

"It began quite simply with Sarah announcing over tea that she was getting married. Luke was not amused."

Story: Testing
Author: unfolded73
Rating: Adult
Word Count: 5289
Author's Summary: “If you want to be angry at him for what he did, that’s fine. But don’t be angry at him because you think it’ll be easier, for you or for me."
Characters: The Doctor [Duplicate 10], Rose Tyler

Recced Because: Journey's End was, to say the least, bittersweet for Rose. The author creates a tentative, but optimistic future for the two people left behind.

Story: Risky Business
Author: Monopoly
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 1143
Author's Summary: In a world where the Master never died, the Doctor comes to the realization that people under TARDIS arrest generally expect to be entertained.
Characters: The Doctor (10th), The Master (Simm)

Recced Because: The Doctor teaching the bored Master to play Risk is such an interesting idea, which Monopoly executes in an adorable and in-character way. This story demonstrates the rivalry, history, and secret affection between old enemies learning to live together.

Story: Cheer Up, Emo Lonely God
Author: koshiroryuu
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 1366
Author's Summary: Time Lords may be above posting bad emo poetry on the internet, possibly, but they're not above foisting themselves on their friends to complain all about how they have no friends.
Characters: Clyde, Luke, Maria, Sarah Jane, The Doctor (10th)
Warning: Spoilers for Journey's End

Recced Because:  Luke, Clyde, Maria, and Sarah Jane are as practical and witty as ever, calmly resolving a Series finale plot twist while the Doctor flails. Anyone could use a friend on an emo Monday and Sarah Jane is a marvelous one.

Story: Donna: the Beta Reader
Author: Nostalgia
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 1387
Author's Summary: In which the Doctor writes some fanfic and Donna… is Donna.
Characters/Pairings: Donna Noble, the Doctor (10th)
Warnings: Language

Recced because: Every writer should consult a beta reader. But when an innocent request for a beta becomes a shipwar, the Doctor thinks twice about sharing his Angel fanfic with Donna. This concise, fantastic bit of humor is exactly the kind of fiction that I like to read.

The Doctor blushed. "Neither of them are me! I don't write that sort of fanfic! I write intelligent, thoughtful prose which is, for your information, very well received on the internet."

Story: Kiss Me, Please Kill Me
Author: HonorH
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 1143
Author's Summary: Even from beyond the grave, the Master torments the Doctor--and his latest companion.
Characters/Pairings: Donna Noble, the Doctor (10th)
Warnings: None

Recced because: In Kiss Me, Please Kill Me, the Doctor steals Donna’s copy of the Master’s novel, which features suspiciously familiar love interests adoring the suspiciously familiar main character. I literally laughed out loud at this well-written and entertaining story, in which Donna and the Doctor demonstrate the secret pleasure and captivating horror of really bad fiction. 

"Don't tell me it's not yours, because it's signed, 'To the Lovely Donna, Hugs and Kisses, Harry Saxon'--and his handwriting's appalling, too."

Story: Heritage
Author: np_complete
Rating: Adult
Word Count: 31836
Author's Summary: Half Time Lord, all human. In the future, one extraordinary man lives an almost entirely unremarkable life. (Almost.)
Characters/Pairings: Other Character(s), Jackie Tyler, off-screen Rose/Doctor
Warnings: Explicit scenes in later chapters.

Recced because: This is a lovely series, with compelling and surprisingly normal leads.  In Heritage, Rose Tyler’s son navigates the alternate world, meets the wonderful Penny, and has the Earth-bound adventure that the Doctor never could.  Heritage is a leisurely and wonderful read, which more than overcomes the concerns usually applicable to stories with original characters. Together with the nuanced original characters, the author writes an affectionate and very funny Jackie.

Story: Ten Times Trouble
Author: TigerKat
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 8157
Author's Summary: Ian and Barbara are getting married. All ten Doctors go to their wedding. Chaos ensues.
Characters/Pairings: Barbara Wright/Ian Chesterton, the Doctor (1-10), Ace McShane, Donna Noble, Evelyn Smythe, Fitz Kreiner, Jack Harkness, Jamie McCrimmon, Other Character(s), Romana II, Sarah Jane Smith
Warnings: None. 

Recced because: Ian and Barbara deserve a perfectly lovely and smooth wedding, complete with affection, cake, peace, and presents. But Ten Times Trouble is like a real wedding, rolling everyone’s drunk uncle, interrupting brother, affectionate friends, and bickering relatives into ten incorrigible packages. This sweet, funny, and poignant story has more than a bit of appeal for almost every part of fandom.
