juliet316: Made for me by < lj user= alizarin-skies> as a result of bidding on her for the Support Stacie auction.  Not shareable (DW: TenRegeneration)
[personal profile] juliet316

For my final rec this week, we're going to do the otherside of End of Time, dealing with Ten's regeneration and how it's possible for Ten to have a happy ending regardless of what we saw onscreen.  Also, I've neglected Ten a bit this week, so I need to give him a bit of love.

Story:  Fracture
Author:  Kathryn Shadow

Rating:  All Ages/PG
Word Count: 2169/One-shot
Author's Summary:  He raised a hand and looked at it—saw the glow. The end. Game over. Please try again. Canon-friendly EoT fixfic.

Characters/Pairings:  10th Doctor, 11th Doctor, Rose Tyler Ten.5/Rose Ten/Rose


Recced because:
  This rec is for all the people who are still heartbroken over the ending that Ten got in End of Time.  This scenario has been done a few times since EoT aired.  However this gives much sensitivity to Ten's feelings prior as the regeneration happens and his thoughts to the impossible event that happens in the aftermath.  It ranks up there to me as among one of the best EoT fix - its.  No excerpt as I'm not sure where I could put one without it being too terribly sad or spoilery to the story.

To wrap up my weekend, I'm going to rec at least two pieces that explore to very different, yet similar aspects of EoT.  This one involves the way the Time War  and what happened to the Time Lords and their fate that  was explored in that episode. 

Story:  Only a Northern Song
Author:  Roach Patrol

Rating:  Adult/R
Word Count: 4381/one-shot
Author's Summary: A dark and nasty little story from the beginning of the Time War. The Lord President Rassilon seeks to educate his Council on the ill-advised nature of disobedience, and demonstrate the consequences of recklessly, deliberately, and repeatedly engaging in said ill-advised action. The Doctor is just the right men for the job. After all, if you can't beat them, change them.

Characters/Pairings: Rassilon, 8th Doctor, 9th Doctor, various other Time Lords
Warnings: graphic rape and torture, character death
Recced because:  I know there are a lot of people who weren't happy with how RTD presented the Time Lords and the effect the Time War had on them in EoT.  I however thought it was quite believeable that war could have driven most of the Time Lords insane.  It also gave me a new theory on how the regeneration from the Eighth Doctor to the Ninth Doctor could have come about.  Thus far this is the only fic that deals with both the Time Lords as we saw them in EoT, in particular Rassilon, and the regeneration we can only speculate about, which runs similar to some of my own theories.  It's a very dark and and chilling story, not for the easily squicked or triggered, but a very vivid and good story nonetheless.

 How about some humor with a small side of smut to start off the weekend?



Story:  The OOC Syndrome
Author:  Carly

Rating:  Teen/about PG - 13
Word Count:  13690/8 chapters
Author's Summary:  After visiting a strange alien planet, the Doctor and Jack began to act very strangely. Now, it's up to Rose to get them back to normal. Nine/Rose

Characters/Pairings: Ninth Doctor, Rose Tyler, Jack Harkness, OCs, Nine/Rose
Recced because: A very funny story that has Jack and the Doctor acting the very opposite of what they usually are thanks to alien influence.  Jack turns into a virtual monk while the Doctor becomes very amorus with his focus soley on Rose.  Rose has to deal with the two men in her life suddenly acting very different and at the same time find away to fix them.

Let's have a long and dark trip with Torchwood for our Thursday reading.



Story: Jack Harkness - Super Temp
Author: madder_rose
Rating: Adult/R
Word Count: 38609/33 chapters. Complete
Author's Summary: Jack Harkness lives in a cubicled office. Then one day, he meets a blue eyed man, and things slowly start to change.

Characters/Pairings: Jack Harkness, Ianto Jones, Gwen Cooper, Rhys Williams, Mickey Smith, Martha Jones, Sarah Jane Smith, OCs, Jack/OC, Gwen/Rhys, Jack/Ianto
Warnings: Domestic Violence/Rape, Torture, Mind Control, Adult language, character death

Recced because: What starts out seemingly as a complete AU, quickly turns into a terrifying and twisted story, involving a secret, evil branch of Unit, technology that's scary in both it's implimentation in the story and how scary it could be if used in real life, and a Jack who's victimized by both technology and the environment he's been placed in. Also features a kick-ass Ianto who takes no prisoners and is very much like the man who put shot Owen in the shoulder in Capt. Jack Harkness and used a stun gun to incapacitate one of the villians in Meat.

Author's Summary: Surely there is at least one person other than Martha Jones capable of standing up to the Master. (Crossover with Buffy the Vampire Slayer featuring Giles.)

Characters/Pairings: Rupert Giles (BtVS), Simm!Master


Recced because: Giles standing toe to toe with the Master is awesome!

I'm reccing a bit early to a) make up for reccing so late last night and b)because there's a chance of thunderstorms moving through later.

Now that I've started out with a New!Who rec, let's take a step into Classic!Who and the Fifth Doctor's era.

Story:  Best Enemies
Author: kittenmommy

Rating:  all ages/PG
Word Count: 10037/One shot
Author's Summary:  With the Doctor critically injured and unable to regenerate, Tegan and Turlough join with the Master in a desperate bid to save the Doctor's life.

Characters/Pairings: Tegan, Turlough, The Master(Ainley), 5th Doctor, 4th Doctor
Warnings:  Angst,
Recced because:  I've seen very little of the Fifth Doctor's era beyond what I've seen on YouTube and Time Crash.  However kittenmommy's story makes me feel like I have, crafting a story that shows the characters of that era without making me feel like I have to YouTube them to find out more about them before reading.  I also find the relationship that evolves between Tegan and the Master intriguing as well as the brief conversation between the Doctor and the Master.


Excerpt )
juliet316: Made for me by < lj user= alizarin-skies> as a result of bidding on her for the Support Stacie auction.  Not shareable (DW: Nine insane)
[personal profile] juliet316
Hello, I'm [livejournal.com profile] juliet316, and this is my second go around reccing for you lovely folks here. Hopefully this time around will be just as much fun and have just as much variety as the last go around.

Story: Broken
Author: LadyCara
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 10305/3 chapters thus far.
Author's Summary: After WWIII, the Doctor and Rose land on the supposedly peaceful planet Verolis when the Doctor is abducted and slowly driven insane. Will Rose be able to free him?
Characters/Pairings: Ninth Doctor, Rose Tyler, TARDIS, OCs both good and evil.
Warnings: Angst, Hurt/Comfort, and it contains several disturbing images of psychiatric and physical torment, including electroshock therapy.

Recced because: This was written for one of the prompts I issued at lilibet's jiggery pokery ficathon; which called for Nine to be locked up on some off world psychiatric ward and made to believe that his entire life as a Time Lord is a lie. It's a work in progress that is not finished yet, however I'm reccing it, because LadyCara ([livejournal.com profile] stillbrainfried on LJ), has taken the prompt and written a story that's far beyond my wildest expectations for the prompt. It's a very dark story that takes everything Nine is and strips it away from him, leaving Rose to rescue him and having to deal with the aftermath. The author has updated regularly, and I encourage people to give the story read what is a fairly good story.

Excerpt from Broken )
juliet316: Made for me by < lj user= alizarin-skies> as a result of bidding on her for the Support Stacie auction.  Not shareable (DW:  JackDonna)
[personal profile] juliet316
As much as I adore the Doctor/Rose relationship, I think Donna Noble has to rank up as possibly my favorite companion in New Who. Somebody who speaks what she wants, does what she wants, and takes no crap from anybody, especially the Doctor. I couldn't do a week of recs without a fic that showcased her.


Story: Taking Charge
Author: Elphie
Rating: All Ages/PG
Word Count: 3058; one shot.
Author's Summary: It's up to Donna to save the Doctor on a nameless world with unfriendly plant-life.
Characters/Pairings: Donna Noble, 10th Doctor


Recced because: As I said at the top, I adore Donna Noble, and I think she is one of the best companions/characters RTD ever came up with. In this story, Donna must brave this unfamiliar world in order to find the antidote that will save the Doctor's life. Her fear for the Doctor's life pushes her to be absolutely fearless in seeking what she needs. In doing so she comes to reflect on why it is that she decided she wanted to travel with the Doctor afterall. This story does a wonderful job of exploring Donna's character as she faces her emotional fears and aches and pains to reach her goal.

[personal profile] juliet316
I was going to rec something else entirely, but in light of somebody deciding to leave COE spoilers wide open for anybody to see them (including the subject line), I decided to rec a Jack/Ianto fic tonight.

Story: Sensory Chaos
Author: queenofhearts
Rating: PG/All Ages
Word Count: 1269; one - shot
Author's Summary: Post Exit Wounds. Spoilers for the TW S2 final.
Characters/Pairings: Jack Harkness/Ianto Jones
Warnings: If there is any chance you have not seen how s2 of Torchwood ends, then it's probably best not to read this fic.


Recced because: This is one of the better fics that I've seen post - Exit Wounds that actually deal with what Jack went through in that episode. The author takes those events and handles the effects on Jack really well. The way Ianto deals with that is brilliantly done and begins the healing process I feel for both in the aftermath of that episode. It's one of the better fics I've seen dealing with the episode.
juliet316: Made for me by < lj user= alizarin-skies> as a result of bidding on her for the Support Stacie auction.  Not shareable (DoctorWho: 9)
[personal profile] juliet316
I've been trying to avoid reccing ongoing WIPs because I know many like to read completed stories. However the authors of this story updated this one today, so I just had to include it in the rec list.


Story: Never Quite Normal
Author: Pairadox Timeline
Rating: Adult/R
Word Count: 57,480; currently at 26 chapters
Author's Summary: He can't abide his face in the mirror or the memory of what he has done. The silence has made him insane and the insanity has made him dangerous. At the end of the Time War, the Doctor takes drastic steps, with the help of friends old and new. Nine AU.
Characters/Pairings: Nine/Rose, Brigadier Alistair Lethbridge Stewart/Doris Stewart, Harry Sullivan, John Benton, Jackie Tyler, Mickey Smith
Warnings: Adult language, some violence, issues of alcohol abuse.

Recced because: The authors take a broken and dmanaged post - Time War Nine, and spins a brilliant AU based on making a drastic path with his life. The bonds between himself and Classic Who characters, the Brigadier, Benton, and Harry Sullivan are lovingly evident and his meeting with Rose and the development of their relationship is painfully poignant. Both Classic and New Who fans will find unique gems to enjoy about this story and it's overall tale of pain, loss, and trying to put oneself back together again.

[personal profile] juliet316
Good, quality crossovers can be such a hard thing to find. So I thought today, I would rec one of my most favorite crossovers that I've come across on Teaspoon.

Story: Passing Ships
Author: DZ Crasher
Rating: PG/All ages
Word Count: 1002
Author's Summary: The first and only time he ever saw Susan Ivanova was at a party where he was doing his best to charm the Centauri ambassador and she looked like she wanted to die.
Characters/Pairings: Jack Harkness, Susan Ivanova (Babylon Five)


Recced because: As I've said, good crossovers can be hard to find, and this is, though short, is one of the best one's I've seen written. Jack is Jack post - Parting of the Ways and one would presume many years past working for Torchwood (Do not worry about COE spoilers, this story was written long ago). Though she's seen through Jack's eyes, Susan is perfectly in character, especially post S4 of Babylon Five. Even if you never watched a single episode of Babylon Five, the author captures her so brilliantly that you could read this without the benefit of B5's history (though really, try and watch the episodes, it was a really good show and ahead of it's time) and still get the gist of who she is. A friend of mine put this the best: It's the coming together of two lost souls, if only for a night.

I'm going to take us to angst tonight. I'm kind of in a foul mood and this story always fits the bill for me.

Story: Never Enough Time (Formerly "Time Heals")
Author: CorellianBlue
Rating: Adult/R
Word Count: 14850 spread over five chapters.
Author's Summary: Rose is gone. Without her, the Doctor is lost and uncertain he has the strength, or desire, to struggle through grief again.
Characters/Pairings: Ten, TARDIS, Sarah Jane Ten/Rose implied
Warnings: Attempted suicide.

Recced because: Suicide I realize isn't everybody's cup of tea, but this story really shows how one could be lead to attempt it, and the consequences of such an act. It takes the Doctor, post - Doomsday, to his lowest point and with some help, puts him on some semblance of okay again without Rose. It's often one of the things I'll read when I'm in a really angsty mood (like tonight).

I'll try for something somewhat happier tomorrow :-)

Hello, I'm [livejournal.com profile] juliet316and I'll be your friendly neighborhood reccer - oh wait, wrong fandom *blushes*

Anyways, I'll be bringing you some of what I think are some of the most wonderful stories I've come across in my time on Teaspoon. To help everybody with the Monday blahs, we'll start with some humor.

Story: Last Defence
Author: Gillian Taylor
Rating: All Ages/I would say about PG
Word Count: 3338
Author's Summary: When all hope is lost, who else can they turn to?
Characters/Pairings: Nine, Jackie Tyler, Rose Tyler
Warnings:


Recced because: It starts out with a dramatic situation for the Doctor and Rose, and quickly evolves into a dramedy when Jackie comes onto the scene. It's just a classic situation, with Nine being forced to trust the one person in the universe who can't stand him in order to save him and Rose from the particular pickle their in. Just a bit of drama, humor, and good - old fashioned Jackie Tyler slaps to bring about a story, that the reader could easily see as an episode of S1 of New Who. Last line is a hoot. :-)
