And this is the last rec from me. I hope you've enjoyed at least some of these stories.

Story: Dr Harry Sullivan in... Another Exciting Adventure! (The ‘You Had To Be There’ Remix)
Author: aralias
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 1408
Author's Summary: Watch Out, Opponents of Women’s Rights! Doctor Harry Sullivan is on your tail!
Characters/Pairings: None listed, but includes Harry Sullivan, Sarah Jane Smith, Fourth Doctor
Warnings: None

Recced because: It's written in an hilarious style from the point of view of someone who thinks Harry is a hero and everything he does is inherently heroic. Whereas the Doctor and Sarah aren't, of course.

Story: The Mildly Saucy Pejorative of Fatal Death
Author: MacBeth
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 1553
Author's Summary: Why isn't there more Fic of Fatal Death? Why didn't the Doctor simply retire? Why do so many Companions wear high heels when exploring other planets? This fic doesn't necessarily answer any of these questions. We'll explain later.
Characters/Pairings: Emma, The Doctor (Atkinson)
Warnings: Swearing

Recced because: It's a Fatal Death fic written in the same style, with the Atkinson Doctor and Emma poking fun at the usual companion responses and the usual sort of things the Doctor says.

Story: The Divine Feast of Akhaten
Author: Pendragon
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 2954
Author's Summary: The Doctor takes Susan to Akhaten.
Characters/Pairings: Susan Foreman, First Doctor
Warnings: None

Recced because: This is the story of how the Doctor and Susan ended up on Akhaten. It's really interesting to see how different he acts to when he visits with Clara. It's great characterisation as to what he and Susan were like before they spent a few months living in London in the 1960s.

Story: A Vicar's Life
Author: Psi Fi
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 2218
Author's Summary: The Master settles into his disguise as the vicar of the village of Devil's End.
Characters/Pairings: The Master (Delgado)
Warnings: None

Recced because: It's the Master trying to be a nice, normal village vicar. It's amusing how he thinks of his parishoners and their demands on his time, and also how they respond to him. It's something I can definitely see happening.

Story: That One Time Gita Chandra Saved the Earth with Roses
Author: dbskyler
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 760
Author's Summary: Throop had never before met an opponent like Gita.
Characters/Pairings: Gita Chandra
Warnings: None

Recced because: It's Gita being blind when it comes to aliens, which is fun enough on its own, but what makes this story stand out particularly is that it's written from the alien's point of view. Even though he describes things differently to how we would, we can still tell exactly what is going on.

Author: honeynoir
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 1886
Author's Summary: The Doctor cooks for Amy and Rory. (Spoilers for Vampires of Venice.)
Characters/Pairings: Amy Pond, Rory Williams, Eleventh Doctor
Warnings: None

Recced because: There are two elements to this story, each of them interesting in their own right, but together they make a nice contrast. There's Rory's worry about how Amy feels about him and how she feels about the Doctor, and then there's the humour of the Doctor cooking. Rory is great in this, dealing with the madness around him.

Word Count: 276
Author's Summary: Everyone has their fears, even the bravest of people.
Characters/Pairings: Barbara Wright, Ian Chesterton
Warnings: None

Recced because: In contrast to my last rec this is a short piece of fluff showing Ian and Barbara's home life, with an amusing ending.

Hello, calufrax. I'm Paranoidangel and I have a variety of recs over the next fortnight, beginning with a long one from an author that hasn't been recced here before.

Story: The Freedom of Lindos
Author: Llywela
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 57,557
Author's Summary: En route to Scotland, the TARDIS accidentally lands the Doctor, Sarah and Harry in the middle of a desperate struggle for freedom on the other side of the galaxy.
Characters/Pairings: Harry Sullivan, Sarah Jane Smith, Fourth Doctor
Warnings: None

Recced because: It's a lovely long story with an interesting plot about the people of the planet Lindos and what's being done to them. There's plenty for the Doctor, Sarah and Harry to do in it, using their particular skills. The characterisation of the three main characters is spot on and the original characters and their races are fleshed out and interesting.

Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 1200
Author's Summary: "For her, whose life was dictated by chaos and adventure and personal suffering even the Doctor knew nothing about, life was to end not with a bang, but with a whisper."
Characters/Pairings: Ace McShane, The Doctor (7th)
Warnings: None

Recced because: It's a short fic with a lovely moment between the Seventh Doctor and Ace that shows how much they care about each other.

Author's Summary: The Doctor has finally landed Sarah and Harry somewhere relatively safe. So why not enjoy a party?
Characters/Pairings: Harry Sullivan, Sarah Jane Smith
Warnings: None

Recced because: It's a lovely bit of fluff between Harry and Sarah. Their banter is perfectly them and Harry being Harry is amusing, as is Sarah getting Harry to do what she wants.

Word Count: 829
Author's Summary: Eleven wants to discuss last night with Rory. Rory really wishes he wouldn’t.
Characters/Pairings: Rory Williams, The Doctor (11th), Contains background Eleven/River/Romana II.
Warnings: None

Recced because: This is an amusing little story. The Doctor's story of what happened the night before and the way he tells it are funny and in character, as is Rory's reaction. The Doctor failing to understand that he's talking about the sort of thing a father doesn't want to know about his Doctor just make it funnier.

Story: Relax!
Author: Lissy Strata
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 475
Author's Summary: A nice day out ends with a mad dash back to the TARDIS.
Characters/Pairings: Barbara Wright, Ian Chesterton, Susan Foreman, The Doctor (1st)
Warnings: None

Recced because: This is a nice, light fic in contrast to yesterday's. It is a short fic with the typical tale that we all know of the TARDIS landing somewhere and the team ending up running back to it. There's a bit more to it than that, but to tell you what it is I'd spoil the whole fic. So I'd just go and read it, it won't take long.

Story: Vermin in the Lower Zoo
Author: Daystar Searcher
Rating: Adult
Word Count: 2138
Author's Summary: What if 'The Edge of Destruction' had marked the end of the Doctor's moral ambiguity in a different way, and his character had transitioned not into a hero, but a villain? One who demanded punishment for insubordination, and a price for ferrying two stowaways home.
Characters/Pairings: Barbara Wright, Ian Chesterton, Susan Foreman, The Doctor (1st)
Warnings: Explicit Sex, Non-Con

Recced because: Anyone who knows me knows that I don't read fic with sex in because the sec never seems to be important. So you know this one must be good. In this case the sex isn't important - but that in itself is important. It is a horrifyingly dystopian AU, but there is something compelling about it, in the way that Ian and Barbara deal with the situation they find themselves in, that makes it hard to stop reading and harder to forget.

Story: David and the Gorgon
Author: Quean of Swords
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 46,288
Author's Summary: It's been a year since David's girlfriend left to go travelling through time and space with the Doctor. Then one Thursday, David finds a statue that looks a little bit too much like one of his best friends. There's nothing to do but call the Doctor and hope he comes before more fall victim to a mysterious force turning young men into stone.
Characters/Pairings: Barbara Wright, Martha Jones, Mickey Smith, Original Companion, Original Companion, The Doctor (10th), The Doctor (11th), The Doctor (5th), The Doctor (8th)
Warnings: Swearing

Recced because: Although this fic is part of a series, this is the one I read first, so it's not necessary to understand who all the original characters are to enjoy this. And the original characters are a large part of the enjoyment. They're interesting and three dimensional and make you want to know more about them. The other reason I like this fic is the plot. It's a very Doctor Who-like plot, interestingly introduced and unfolded and solved. The fic also has its amusing moments, as in the excerpt, contrasted with the sad moments.

Story: The Giraffe Convolution of Doom
Author: Primsong
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 6421
Author's Summary: There are vampire giraffes reported at the London Zoo. The Doctor must do something about that, seeing as he’s been there before.
Characters/Pairings: Ace McShane, Evelyn Smythe, Frobisher, Jamie McCrimmon, Martha Jones, Sarah Jane Smith, The Doctor (11th), The Doctor (2nd), The Doctor (4th), The Doctor (6th), The Doctor (7th), The Meddling Monk
Warnings: None

Recced because: It's clever how Primsong ties in the different Doctors and companions and events. It's also a quite ridiculous story - the ridiculousness of it all comes out of the characters and it feels right.

Story: Five Times Sarah Lied to the Doctor About Harry
Author: vvj5
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 1379
Author's Summary: There's absolutely nothing going on between Harry and Sarah, whatever the Doctor thinks.
Characters/Pairings: Harry Sullivan, Sarah Jane Smith, The Doctor (4th)
Warnings: None

Recced because: It's quite funny and the humour comes from the characters being perfectly themselves. The Doctor thinks he's knows things, Harry has no idea and Sarah's the one in control of both of them. Which is pretty normal for those three, really.

Story: The Future is Full of Possibilities (and chocolate biscuits)
Author: Netgirl_y2k
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 2399
Author's Summary: That time the Doctor and Donna accidentally kidnapped Morgana. Crossover with Merlin.
Characters/Pairings: Donna Noble, The Doctor (10th)
Warnings: None

Recced because: If you don't know Merlin (the TV series) then this'll mean nothing to you, since Morgana is the central character. But if you do then it's funny to see how she deals with the Doctor and Donna and a world so different to hers.

Story: Things Unsaid
Author: TigerKat
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 2521
Author's Summary: Ian and Barbara deal with an accident. Which perhaps wasn't terribly accidental.
Characters/Pairings: Ian/Barbara, Susan, The Doctor (1st)
Warnings: None

Recced because: It's amusing, the situation they're in and how long it takes Ian to catch onto it. And the suggestion at the end about how they might have come to be in that situation in the first place. It's also sweet and funny how Barbara and Ian both feel the same way about each other, but won't bring themselves to say it.

Author's Summary: After resigning from UNIT, Mike is still trying to put things behind him.
Characters/Pairings: Jo Grant, Mike Yates
Warnings: None

Recced because: It's short and sweet. The story tells you a lot about the relationship between Jo and Mike and what they both do after she marries Cliff. It's just right for both of them.

Author's Summary: Some time after she moves to America, Maria Jackson gets wrapped up in mysterious temporal events and Sarah Jane's past.
Characters/Pairings: Alan Jackson, Maria Jackson, Sarah Jane Smith, The Doctor (4th)
Warnings: None

Recced because: It's nice to see Maria in America and it's interesting and fun to see her with the Fourth Doctor. It's also a good plot and, since it's written for the girl saves boy ficathon, it's good to see Maria saving the world, with the Doctor helping.

Characters/Pairings: Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart, Cliff Jones, Harry Sullivan, Jo Grant, Liz Shaw, Martha Jones, Sarah Jane Smith, Sergeant Benton, UNIT

Story: Here Be Dragons!
Author: MinervaFan
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 4665
Author's Summary: In order to get a rare substance for the TARDIS, Harry and Sarah must get married. Too bad the Doctor didn't give them much advance warning.
Characters/Pairings: Sarah/Harry, Sarah/Fourth Doctor
Warnings: None

Recced because: This is funny as the Doctor hints at things and fails to tell Sarah and Harry other things. I like the initial idea of Sarah and Harry having to get married in order to get a part for the TARDIS, but what makes this fic stand out is what's happening between Sarah and Harry, and Sarah and the Doctor.

Characters/Pairings: Ian/Barbara. Donna Noble, Martha Jones, Other Character(s), The Doctor (10th)
Warnings: None

Recced because: The Doctor and Donna looking after a baby when neither of them quite know what to do is funny. It's the sort of story made more interesting by time travel, once we learn where the baby's come from. It's a good idea that I can see being canon.

Author's Summary: A small alien is lost in a holiday mall...Santa - or Three - to the rescue. A light Christmastide tale with a sprinkle of peppermint and fluff.
Characters/Pairings: Jo Grant, Mike Yates, Sergeant Benton, The Doctor (3rd)
Warnings: None

Recced because: July is the perfect time to read Christmas fic. This one mixes up some sweet scenes with Jo and the Third Doctor and the alien, along with some funny scenes as the Doctor plays Santa. It still manages to be just the sort of thing UNIT would get mixed up in as well.

Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 3214
Author's Summary: 1969: A young PhD student named Evelyn goes to a lecture given by a Mrs. Chesterton. 1972: A companion to the Doctor named Dr. Smythe meets Barbara again.
Characters/Pairings: Ian/Barbara, Evelyn Smythe, Sixth Doctor
Warnings: None

Recced because: There aren't many Evelyn stories and this is a particularly lovely one. The relationship between the Sixth Doctor and Evelyn is just right - exactly as it is in the audios. Evelyn and Barbara are two companions who should definitely meet, given their shared interest in history. It's fun to see the Sixth Doctor, Evelyn, Ian and Barbara all interact.

Author's Summary: Harry Sullivan, a man who knows the fine art of shoe loss and replacement.
Characters/Pairings: Bernice Summerfield, Harry Sullivan, Sarah Jane Smith, The Doctor (4th), The Doctor (8th)
Warnings: None

Recced because: I might be biased, since it was written for me in a ficathon, but then it is Harry fic in characters, so what's not to like? It's a fun tale of various times when Harry lost his shoes and never puts him down. He gets to meet a couple of characters from other eras along the way, so it's interesting to see how he interacts with them. It's just wonderfully characterised and fun.

Author's Summary: Barbara Wright! Saving the world with Geometry! More so saving Ian with Geometry.
Characters/Pairings: Barbara Wright, Ian Chesterton
Warnings: None

Recced because: It's a short, fun story. It's exactly the sort of thing that happens to all companions - getting locked up. But this story has an different way out of it and it's interesting to see Ian and Barbara handle their respective positions.

Story: Alien Abduction for Beginners (or, How I Never Wanted to Spend My Summer Vacation by Meredith McKay)
Author: Azar
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 236
Author's Summary: Get kidnapped, see the universe. Crossover with Stargate Atlantis.
Characters/Pairings: Tenth Doctor
Warnings: None

Recced because: This crossover probably won't have as much impact if you don't know who the aforementioned Meredith McKay is because it's short. However, if you do, you'll see why it doesn't need to be made any longer. I think more of McKay and the Doctor together might cause you to bang your head together, given the way they're like in this one. But this little snippet is funny - it's the typical reaction you'd expect McKay to have about travelling with the Doctor.

Story: Companions at the Chalet School
Author: hhertzof
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 36,184
Author's Summary: The Chalet School has three new pupils. Sarah Jane is ambivalent; Ace has been coerced by the Doctor, and Jo is just thrilled to be at boarding school at last. Meanwhile, Barbara Wright joins the school as a mistress. Mysterious weather and strange doings make this a term to remember.
Characters/Pairings: Ace McShane, Barbara Wright, Jack Harkness, Jo Grant, Sarah Jane Smith, Third Doctor, Tenth Doctor
Warnings: None

Recced because: This is a crossover with Chalet School. If you've read those books you'll get the cliches replicated in this, and see how close it is to one of the books. If you've never heard of the Chalet School this'll still make sense because hhertzof explains everything you need to know in the story. You'd think, looking at the list of characters in this story that it would be tricky to get them all to the same boarding school in Switzerland, but hhertzof comes up with good reasons, and any lingering doubts are satisfied by the end of the story. The Doctor Who plot in it meshes well with the Chalet School plot, both of which are typical for the fandom.

Basically, it's a great adventure with a few of the companions and the Doctor being his normal self (both of them).

Author's Summary: Harry meets Maria, Luke and Clyde
Characters/Pairings: Sarah Jane Smith, Harry Sullivan, Maria Jackson, Luke Smith, Clyde Langer

Characters/Pairings: Charley Pollard, Jack Harkness
Warnings: None

Recced because: It's really interesting to look at what Charley might have done during the War, after she and the Doctor stopped travelling together. Jack being his typical self makes them a really fun pair to meet.

Author's Summary: "It's not that she wants him to leave, not exactly. It's just that she's afraid he'll stay." Post-School Reunion Sarah Jane/Harry.
Characters/Pairings: Sarah Jane/Harry
Warnings: None

Recced because: It's broken Sarah/Harry in a way that I can believe happened. The characterisation is spot on and Sarah describes Harry perfectly in it. You can feel the emotions of the two of them and what they feel about each other without it having to be explained.

Story: Silver and Gold
Author: Weimlady
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 38,230
Author's Summary: Post Runaway Bride/pre-Smith & Jones/pre-Sarah Jane Adventures story. The Tenth Doctor and Sarah Jane Smith meet again a few months after School Reunion. Special guest appearance of another old friend from Classic days.
Characters/Pairings: Tenth Doctor, Sarah Jane Smith, Torchwood
Warnings: None

Recced because: It's long with long chapters and that allows you to get into the story. Once I started reading, I couldn't stop. The relationship between the Tenth Doctor and Sarah is very interesting, as are the glimpses into her life. Weimlady writes a Doctor with slightly alien ways - more so than we see on TV sometimes, but it's never too far to make him out of character. It all makes sense with what we know about the Doctor.

The other stories Weimlady has written follow on from this one and they're all long enough to really get into another world, and show fantastic world building and interesting, realistic relationships between the characters in them.

Author: morgeil
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 625
Author's Summary: Sometimes, Ian just doesn't think...
Characters/Pairings: Ian, Barbara
Warnings: None

Recced because: It's quite amusing, but there's a serious look in there about what Ian might have got up to during the time they spent in the Roman villa. Ian and Barbara are actually quite sweet in this, even though it's not something immediately obvious from the way they talk to each other.

Story: In Which Ace and Hex Done Sex
Author: Kesomon
Rating: Not given, but I'd estimate it as All Ages
Word Count: 306
Author's Summary: Title says it all.
Characters/Pairings: Ace, Hex, Bernice Summerfield
Warnings: None

Recced because: Kesomon points out at the top of the story that it's crack and it is: good crack. It does involve moving events around a bit to make it work, but the payoff is worth it. No excerpt for this one, and I am avoiding saying much about the story because it is so short that anything I do say would give the whole thing away. Just bear in mind that the title and the summary may or may not be misleading.

Author: hhertzof
Rating: All Ages

Author's Summary: Luke, Maria and Clyde are searching for aliens, the Doctor's searching for spare parts and Sarah's searching for peace and quiet.
Characters/Pairings: Donna, Tenth Doctor, Alan, Clyde, Luke, Maria, Sarah
Warnings: None

Recced because: Because it's utterly silly. Yet still in keeping with the tone of Doctor Who and SJA. There's quite a few characters and quite a short story, yet they still all have their own role in it. I really liked the kids' reactions to seeing a police box and meeting the Doctor.

Author: Maymargaret
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 2420
Author's Summary: Harry Sullivan visits Sarah Jane shortly after her adoption of Luke.
Characters/Pairings: Harry, Sarah, Luke
Warnings: None

Recced because: I like the way this story shows us how Sarah is trying to deal with suddenly becoming a mother, but from Harry's point of view. The relationships between Sarah & Harry and Sarah & Luke are quite sweet in this. Sarah's just typically Sarah in this.

Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 7367
Author's Summary: The dangers of running into oneself had been drummed into Jack Harkness from his first days at the Academy.
Characters/Pairings: Jack Harkness
Warnings: None

Recced because: This was written a year and a half ago so quite a bit of it has been jossed. But it doesn't matter, because it's still a really good story. I think I prefer this version of what Jack got up to while waiting for the Doctor to the one they showed us in Torchwood series 2. Having more than one version of Jack in it is a good way of showing how he's changed.

Author's Summary: The Brigadier and UNIT attempt to enjoy their annual summer picnic, except for an odd alien occurrence which isn't the Doctor's fault, of course.
Characters/Pairings: Third Doctor, Jo Grant, Benton, Yates
Warnings: None

Recced because: It's really amusing (by which I mean funny, just not laugh out loud funny). And it's just typical of that era with the way the characters react to each other and the situation. An excerpt is going to show how good this is far better than I can explain it.
