Story: Amor Vincit Omnia: A Dark Tale With A Happy Ending
Author: Biichan
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 1452
Author's Summary: There is very little the Doctor won't do to get Rose Tyler back. Whether this is a good thing is debatable
Characters/Pairings: Tenth Doctor/Rose Tyler, Jack Harkness, Martha Jones, Sarah Jane Smith, Donna Noble.
Warnings: Graphic violence, OOC (Dark!Doctor), Non-Con. Will likely make some readers squeamish.

Recced because: Crack, but really bloody dark crack. Evocative, creepy and just downright disturbing. But brilliant.

Can't say anything else without giving it all away, really...

Story: The Hypothetical Love Affair
Author: zoicite
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 5189
Author's Summary: The entire thing began as an attempt to get back at Donna’s mother.
Characters/Pairings: Tenth Doctor/Donna Noble

Recced because: Yes, I admit... I (and a few others) coaxed [livejournal.com profile] zoicite into joining the Teaspoon purely so I can rec this fic here.

This is my favorite Ten/Donna fic period. What I like the most about [livejournal.com profile] zoicite's stories is that - even when things get complicated and sex gets involved - the friendship between Ten and Donna is still treated as the most important factor, the most indomitable aspect of the relationship. It's fantastic, because there are so many Ten/Donna het writers these days that tend to lose sight of that.

Even if you don't ship them romantically, give this a go. You'd probably be pleasantly surprised.

Story: Innocence Lost (Emo Dance Remix)
Author: MinervaFan
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 2160
Author's Summary: Wrong time. Wrong place. Wrong Sarah Jane. Really, really, really wrong Sarah Jane. Careful, Doctor.
Characters/Pairings: Fourth Doctor, Sarah Jane Smith, Maria Jackson, Clyde Langer, Luke Smith

Recced because: Four meeting Sarah's teenage companions! I mean, do I really have to say anything else to sell this?

Actually, this is a companion story to another of [livejournal.com profile] minerva_fan's fics, but it stands quite fine on it's own.

Story: The Hitchhiker's Guide to Getting Laid on Gallifrey
Author: LizBee
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 1293
Author's Summary: The Gallifreyan Karma Sutra is a very short book.
Characters/Pairings: Fourth Doctor, Romana I

Recced because: Because, if I am to be terribly honest with myself, I prefer the first Romana over her second incarnation (mind you, it's a terribly close race). And good Romana I fic is hard to find. Thankfully this fic exists.

And there is not only great Romana I characterization... there is also excellent Four/Romana snark and probably some of the best Four/K9 banter I've ever read.

Disappointingly however, there is actually very little sex involved.

Story: Love's Cocoa
Author: The Secretive Bus
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 868
Author's Summary: Cameca had loved the Doctor. If only he'd loved her back.
Characters/Pairings: One/Cameca
Warnings: None.

Recced because: One/Cameca from "The Aztecs" are one of those lovely, obscure pairings that sadly never get any love. This is beautiful.

Note to self: quit taking naps and falling asleep before you do your rec.

Story: A Second Coming
Author: TigerKat
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 1674
Author's Summary: Grace Holloway never expected to see the Doctor again. Certainly not like this. Starring Ten, Martha, Donna and Grace. Spoilers for third season and fourth season casting.
Characters/Pairings: Ten, Donna, Martha and Grace
Warnings: None.

Recced because: This was actually written before S4 aired, so I guess you can take it as AU. Still, the interaction between Martha and Donna is spot on and makes me suspicious of the author's possible clairvoyant abilities. That and I'm just a sucker for past companions meeting current ones. :)

Will be posting my last rec after I get back from the early Christmas my family is doing today. A Hartnell probably. Yes, Hartnell will do nicely...

Story: People as Places
Author: Biichan
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 722
Author's Summary: “You and I,” he says, with some regret, “are past our dancing days.”
Characters/Pairings: Valeyard/Bianca
Warnings: None

Recced because: GORGEOUSNESS. That's all I'm sayin'. Anything else would ruin it, yo. (Though it would probably help if you have heard The Wormery...)
[identity profile] morgeil.livejournal.com
Apologies for starting off late. I just returned from Chicago TARDIS and needed a few days to decompress myself. But now that I have recovered... to the reccing mobile!

Plan to mix up the Classic/New a bit more this time round. But for a starting appetizer, have some Ten and Donna. :)


Story: Inertia
Author: Sparrow
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 710
Author's Summary: He won't fall in love with her, he's smarter than that. But it just comes down to the inertia of the thing.
Characters/Pairings: one-sided Ten/Donna
Warnings: None

Recced because: Sparrow needs more love. And I have a wee soft spot for the theory that Ten was crushing on Donna like a mad thing all through Season 4. Anyway, what it says on the tin: a lovely Ten introspective about Donna. Short, sweet and gorgeous.

[identity profile] morgeil.livejournal.com
Drat, I never seem to manage all seven recs, do I? And I never got around to a classic series one... ah well, the world needs moar Donna!fic anyway. ;)


Story: Autumn Days That Make You Feel Sad
Author: sparrow
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 1246
Author's Summary: Sometimes, you have to sacrifice for the sake of a friend. Donna knows this very well. Must be 4x13 compliant to ride. :)
Characters/Pairings: Donna Noble, the Tenth Doctor
Warnings: None.

Recced because: One of my favorite post-"Journey's End" fics. A interesting twist on events, excellent Donna introspective and a vague but hopeful ending. Quite lovely.

Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 3356
Author's Summary: Ten and Donna share some relaxing moments, enlivened by arthropods.
Characters/Pairings: Donna Noble, the Tenth Doctor
Warnings: None

Story: Passing the Torch
Author: Carmen Sandiego
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 1433
Author's Summary: Just before dying, the Doctor passed on his awesome legacy to Donna Noble.
Characters/Pairings: Donna Noble, Romana II, Jack Harkness, Martha Jones, Sarah Jane Smith, Simm!Master, the Brigadier.
Warnings: Profanity.

Recced because: Hilarious Donna-centric crack!fic. Written well before the S4 finale and at times disturbingly prophetic. Made me giggle lots.
[identity profile] morgeil.livejournal.com
Hello thar again! Since S4 ended and Catherine Tate is made of total awesome, I've got a lot of Donna recs for this week... but they will be mixed in with some good ol' classic series recs as well. And maybe some multi-era. :)

Anyway, onwards!

Story: Four Times Donna Thought the Doctor was Just Like Any Other Bloke and One Time She Didn't
Author: Light
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 598
Author's Summary: Donna was just too practical to pretend he was an omniscient god. Really, he was just another bloke after all.
Characters/Pairings: Tenth Doctor, Donna Noble

Recced because: It may be short, but it provides excellent insight into Donna and her friendship with Ten. Gorgeous, gorgeous character study.

Story: My Country is the Whole World (or four women Ace never kissed)
Author: Netgirl_y2k
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 1560
Author's Summary: The truth is, I often like women.
Characters/Pairings: Ace/Mel, Ace/Martha, Ace/Rose, Ace/Romana II
Warnings: None

Recced because: My favorite femslash fic. And this is coming from someone who isn't as fanatical about Ace as some people... Some excellent pairings here, each sensitively and expertly written. Highly recommended.

This one's a bit late, sorry. That's what I get for staying at office parties too long... :P

Story: Homecoming
Author: Kazzy
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 1597
Author's Summary: They’ve left the Doctor, but in many ways they’re coming home to world that is as foreign as any they’ve been to yet. It’s not easy to pick up the life you left behind.
Characters/Pairings: Ian/Barbara
Warnings: None.

Recced because: This is one of my absolute favorite Ian/Barbara fics. There have been quite a few takes of what happened to them after "The Chase", but I feel that this is the most plausible. It's realistic, understated and quite, quite lovely.

Characters/Pairings: Sixth Doctor, Melanie Bush
Warnings: None

Recced because: It's hard to find good Mel stories. And this is probably the best one I've read! It's intriguing and powerful, with a excellent twist ending.

Warnings: None

Recced because: A very fun New Who twist on a story us old schoolers know all too well. Very clever! To say anything else would give it all away.
