Warnings: None


Recced because: Since the last rec was pretty sad, this one is pure cute fluff.  The mannerisms and dialogue fit them well and it's overall a fun read.

Author's Summary: After the Big Finish "Five Companions" Audio, the Doctor has to see his friends back to their proper places and times. Saying goodbye to one of them is more pleasant than expected, and more painful than the Doctor lets on.
Characters/Pairings: The Doctor (5th)/Nyssa, Ian Chesterton/Barbara Wright,  (Cameos from: Steven Taylor, Sara Kingdom, Polly Wright)
Warnings: Explicit sex and a lot of feels

Recced because: Set during (and after) the audio The Five Companions, this fic is sad, yet lovely and portrays the dynamic between this particular Doctor and companion team well.

Author's Summary: “Now do you see? Bernice Summerfield must die. Can’t you see that she needs to die?”
Characters/Pairings: Bernice Summerfield, Irving Braxiatel, Other Characters
Warnings:  None

Recced because: I have recently gotten into the Bernice Summerfield series of audios and on my search for fics for them, came across this.  This story is intense and exciting; with a unique style that wouldn't feel out of place within the canon of the audios.

Author's Summary: The end and aftermath of the Last Great Time War in the Pete's World Universe. Gallifrey falls, the Doctor is lost, and a killer is lurking among the residents of a town on the edge of the Canadian wilderness. Alt!Five's story.
Characters/Pairings: The Doctor (5th)/Romana (author-created), The Doctor (5th)/Original Character,  The Master(author-created)
Warnings: Some disturbing scenes, and spoilers for the Time War (up to and including Day of the Doctor).


Recced because: This fic is part of a series that explores the idea of "What if the Fifth Doctor had been the one involved in the Time War?"  and introduces a Doctor like we've never seen before.  A very compelling story; with well-developed original characters and excellent world-building.

Author's Summary: Section-Leader Watkins' prisoner seems to know far too much about her.
Characters/Pairings: Zoe Heriot, Isobel Watkins (from The Invasion)
Warnings: None

Recced because: This fic was published only a few days ago, but its concept already got my attention. Not only does it have an interesting premise (if Zoe had stayed with the Doctor up until the events of Inferno) but the dialogue is very in-character and the characterization of mirrorverse! Isobel is fantastic (and a little frightening),

Author's Summary: Barbara Wright had had so many chances, in so many ages, but only one ever came to fruition. A series of short drabbles written because of the number of potential lovers Barbara Wright could have chosen, and the one she did choose.
Characters/Pairings: Barbara Wright/Ian Chesterton, Other Characters
Warnings: None (but you may need to know at least a little about several First Doctor serials)

Recced because: This is a unique series of vignettes focusing on Barbara and an interesting scenario (what if she had chosen someone other than Ian?).

Author's Summary: The Doctor has the headache of a lifetime when his former companions are turned into children.
Characters/Pairings: The Doctor (12th), Clara Oswin Oswald, lots of cameos from many former companions
Warnings: None

Recced because: Since the last fic was kind of sad, here's one that extremely cute. i was initially unsure which of Pendragon's works to rec, but kept coming back to this one in particular. While the trope of 'companions being turned into children' may seem like a simple concept, this author handles it well by making the dialogue fit each character. This fic will almost certainly make you smile. :)

Author's Summary: Season 6B oneshot. It’s a very dark time in the Doctor’s life, but perhaps the one person he used to help can help him now.
Characters/Pairings: The Doctor (2nd), Jamie McCrimmon
Warnings: None.

Recced because: A very beautiful (though a little sad) take on a possible scene between the Doctor and Jamie set after the War Games that actually captures their voices and dynamic well.

Author's Summary: Some planets really know how to throw a party.
Characters/Pairings: The Doctor (5th)/Nyssa of Traken, Tegan Jovanka
Warnings: None

Recced because: With everything that happens to this TARDIS team in canon, they deserve a lighter and fluffier moment or two. This story is a bit reminiscent of Black Orchid; just letting the characters have a bit of relaxation and fun (special mention goes to Tegan's parts) with some romance dusted in while keeping everyone in-character.

Author's Summary: Nobody expected Thomas Schofield to become a famous author. Possibly the person most surprised by it was Schofield himself.
Characters/Pairings: Ace McShane, Hex Schofield, Clara Oswin Oswald, The Doctor (7th), Other Characters
Warnings: None, but quite a few spoilers for several Big Finish audios featuring the Seventh Doctor, Ace, and Hex.

Recced because: Companions' post-TARDIS lives are almost always something to think about. This story explores one possibility for Hex's future in a creative way.

Author's Summary: "Please tell me these are actual, proper chicken eggs," Rory told the Doctor, fishing a carton out of the refrigerator. "Earth chicken eggs. I don't want to crack one of these things open and have to fight off a fire-breathing Venusian quail, or something!"
Characters/Pairings: Amy Pond, River Song, Rory Williams, The Doctor (11th)
Warnings: From the Author's Note: " A tiny little smidge of light naughtiness, hardly worth upping the rating for."

Recced because: This fic was posted only a few days ago and it already got my attention. A fun slice of life moment with the Eleventh Doctor and his companions (and cookies!) that is well-written and perfectly captures this TARDIS team.

Author's Summary:Age does things to one's mind. And one tends to forget as time goes on. Sometimes these things are silly and unimportant, but sometimes...sometimes... We forget the most important things. Even if we don't want them to. Ian Chesterton certainly didn't want to ever forget.
Characters/Pairings: Ian Chesterton/Barbara Wright
Warnings: None given, but mention of character death

Recced because: This work-in-progress is an emotional and beautifully written look at a 'what-if' for these two.

Author's Summary: The Doctor decides it's time that Peri learnt a little bit about him. Naturally this includes a slide-show presentation, some confusion and a written test.
Characters/Pairings: The Doctor (6th), Peri Brown
Warnings: None

Recced because: This amusing one-shot attempts to answer the question that I (and I imagine many fans) have had (how does Peri know about several of the Doctor's previous companions?) in a way that definitely suits the Sixth Doctor.

Author's Summary: Season 6B, post-"The Two Doctors." After learning about Dastari's experiments on the Doctor, the Rani brings her old classmate, along with his Scottish companion, back to Space Station Chimera for a new series of experiments. With two Grigs of Androgums aiding the Rani, the Doctor and Jamie may never be the same again...
Characters/Pairings: Jamie McCrimmon, The Doctor (2nd), The Rani
Warnings: None

Recced because: Just the idea of the Second Doctor and Jamie facing the Rani is intriguing; and the author manages to execute it well with the characters' dynamic written perfectly and a very unique twist (which I won't spoil).

Author's Summary: After a year spent pushing through a time-barrier on Planet Folly, the Doctor is rather the worse for wear. However, he does not entirely appreciate Nyssa's attempts to play nursemaid.
Characters/Pairings: The Doctor (5th), Nyssa
Warnings: None

Recced because: Set during the Big Finish audio "Demons of Red Lodge" (though there is enough context given for this story to work as a standalone), this is a wonderfully angsty and well-written character study for Nyssa and the Doctor.
