amaresu: Sapphire and Steel from the opening (doctorwho-evelyn)
[personal profile] amaresu
As the icon indicates this will be the Evelyn rec for the week. I have already rec'd jedi_penguin this week, but it was unavoidable. That is a subtle hint that people need to write more Big Finish related fics.

Story: A Delightful Species
Author: jedi_penguin
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 623
Author's Summary: She would have said that she was too old for emotional rollercoasters, but she's been known to be mistaken before.
Characters/Pairings: Evelyn/Sixth Doctor
Warnings: Spoilers for Assassins in the Limelight

Recced because: This is a wonderful look at Evelyn's thoughts during the last few scenes of the audio. It has the same narrative feel as the audio which makes it click all the more as a tag to Assassins in the Limelight.

Story: Nights Like This
Author: Joan Milligan
Rating: All Ages
Author's Summary: A big loud man and a little old lady walk into a bar...
Characters/Pairings: Sixth Doctor/Evelyn Smythe (Big Finish audio companion)
Warnings: None

Recced because: Evelyn Smythe, for those unfamiliar with her, is a fiftyish historian with a steel backbone who gives as good as she gets, which is probably why she makes such a fine foil to the Sixth Doctor's abrasiveness and arrogance. This story, told in the style of a rambling joke that turns sweet but not sappy, shows this very odd couple in their element, arguing, drinking, dancing, laughing, alarming everyone around them without meaning to (and sometimes very deliberately meaning to) and generally being wrapped up in one another in a way that made me smile. Six is definitely not my favorite of the Doctors, but I like him with Evelyn, very much.
