Title: Any Colour You Like
Author: Calapine
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 2744
Author's Summary: The Master's curious about his future wife.
Characters/Pairings: The Master (Delgado), Lucy Saxon
Warnings: references to self-harm and suicide ideation.

Recc'ed Because: This story is a paradox, but it works nevertheless. The Master invites Lucy Saxon into his TARDIS and she accepts. The Master is curious and a bit uncomfortable, unfailingly polite and perhaps he do things to Lucy’s mind she doesn’t remember after. He may do it to be kind. And Lucy is damaged, which anyone who has survived the Master probably has to be, but she is also not afraid anymore. The chemistry between them too are very interesting and it is a story which can be read several times. It also beautifully and poetically written.

Title: She First Spotted Him in Malachite and Vases
Author: annariel
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 1869
Author's Summary: River Song chances upon the First Doctor at the Great Exhibition of 1851.
Characters/Pairings: First Doctor, River Song
Warnings: None

Recc'ed Because: I have a special fondness for stories where River meets past regenerations. I am sure she would see the Doctor out. This story is so charming and the Doctor gets charmed too, while still being much himself. And River is her usual flirty self, ready for some adventure. Then throw in a Armelian Neutron Manipulator in the mix… It’s good fun, but with a touch of sadness too, as is fitting in a story with River Song.

Story: Backwards the Clock Goes Ticking
Author: Inkfire
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 511 words
Author's Summary: Sunlight burns and water gleams, and River Song stands suspended. Lake Silencio, twice.
Characters/Pairings: River Song, the Eleventh Doctor
Warnings:None

Recced because: I have a penchant for short, emotionally powerful fics and this one fits the bill beautifully. River Song is one of my favourite characters and I’m fascinated by her fragmented and tragic life. And when I read this story I could feel the intensity of the heat and River’s sense of helplessness.

Author's Summary: Martha meets a strange man during the Year That Never Was.
Characters/Pairings: Martha Jones, The Master (Delgado)
Warnings:None

Recced because: It’s difficult to say much and not give away the whole story as this is a short fic that manages to convey a lot in very few words. The Master has got himself stranded out of his time and is desperate to get away. Martha is trying to save the world, full of confidence in the Doctor. Their points of view differ. Go and read it, it will just take you a few minutes and I'm sure you won't regret it!

Story: Gymnophoria: Take One
Author: Culumacilinte
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 1256 words
Author's Summary: She knows intimately the sensation of a pair of eyes trained on her; the awful, crawling knowledge that someone is staring at her, imagining her naked, imagining doing more than just looking.
Characters/Pairings: The Sixth Doctor, Peri Brown
Warnings: Discussion of sexual harassment, and references to the implied sexual abuse of a minor.


Recced because: I’m re-watching old Who at the moment and just finished Mindwarp. I quite like Peri, but I dislike her being made into a perpetual sex object. This fic deals with how Peri feels about all these guys fawning over her and makes a great job describing it. I also enjoy Six showing his caring side.

Word Count: 8360 words
Author's Summary: Donna asks a reasonable question and the Doctor bends the laws of Time and Space to answer it. Which obviously involves two Doctors, UNIT, the Master and a nasty mess in the space/time continuum.
Characters/Pairings: The Third Doctor, the Tenth Doctor, the Master (Delgado), Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart, Donna Noble, Jo Grant, John Benton, Mike Yates
Warnings: None stated

Recced because: I love this story! The various interactions between the characters are hilarious and their voices spot on. I must confess to a special fondness for The Brig and Donna interacting with each other. I think they would have got along wonderfully if they ever had had a chance to meet. But there are several delightful scenes here, the Doctors bickering with each other, Jo realising that Ten is the Doctor and the Doctors joining forces to annoy the Master, for example.

Rating: Teen
Word Count: 1753 words
Author's Summary: In which Torchwood completely fail to locate the Doctor while he's pretty much on their doorstep.
Characters/Pairings: The Third Doctor, Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart, Liz Shaw, Jack Harkness, Donna Noble, the Tenth Doctor, The Master (Delgado), River Song, the TARDIS
Warnings: None stated

Recced because: The Doctor is thinking of getting a pet snake, the Brigadier fudge personal files and the Master takes a part time job at Torchwood. What is not to love? The fic consist of a couple of short scenes with various characters that are described spot on and why they want to find, or hide, the Doctor. I laughed out loud several times while reading it.
