Alas, we run out of reccers in mid-January. If you've been reading this comm for a while but have never stepped forward to rec, please consider it – everyone, new and old reccers alike, is welcome to rec. (And even if you're not willing to rec for whatever reason, please consider re-posting this entry in your own journals – every little bit of publicity we get helps keep the comm going.)

All you need to do select 4-10 stories that haven't been recced before and that meet the comm's fairly basic rules (well-written/formatted, no bashfic, etc.). Reccing periods last two weeks, and our first open slot begins January 13.

You can read the rules and sign up to rec in this post. Thank you!

Story: River Song and the Lost Tomb of Ardûn
Author: Nancy Brown
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 4928
Author's Summary: River's professor for her first archaeology class was a self-declared expert on late twentieth and early twenty-first century Earth history. Naturally, she hated his guts.
Characters/Pairings: Jack Harkness, River Song, The Doctor (other)
Warnings: None.

Recced because: This has everything you want in an adventure: mystery, humour, action, and a brilliant pay-off.  Plus, River Song.  This is the River I always wanted to see onscreen - competent, independent, adventurous, and a working archaeologist; the glimpses we get of her at university are fascinating.  The worldbuilding is completely believable, with little details and throwaway facts fleshing out what's already a compelling setting.

Basically?  I want to have gone to university with River Song, and I want to have had this adventure.  Because it's brilliant.
