Recced because: Well, it is no secret (I'm sure!) how much I love this author's work! I love the descriptions, imagery and the way I can see the Doctor (and the Companions!) through her eyes. She always brings her best to the table with every word and sentence - and this is seriously no exception! This fiction describes the Companions (through them, of them) with the image of the elements - and it is extraordinary how she just nails them perfectly...and gives us an ending that is unexpected - and yet makes total sense in the aftermath of the rest of the fiction. I'm not giving this one away - this is definitely (like most of her works!) a Must-Read! Though a little taste to get one started never hurts, yes?

Just a taste... )


Go, read, enjoy - and please let her know how much her fiction rocks! I'm sure she will appreciate the Love!

Ahoy there, Who fanfictioneers! As always when I begin a new stint reccing here on [livejournal.com profile] calufrax, I am struck by how little time at all it seems since last time I did this, and how long it in fact was. Tempus fugit and all that. Well, without further ado, allow me to kick off this round of recommendation with something of a rare gem:

Story: Bounce
Author: Nancy Brown
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 5,470
Author's Summary: A mysterious device affects the lives of the Doctor and his friends.
Characters/Pairings: Amy Pond, Canton Everett Delaware III, Jenny Flint, Madame Vastra, Rory Williams, Strax, The Doctor (11th)
Warnings: None, apart from some references to Victorian-era murders

Recced because: Well, full disclosure, this was written in response to one of my prompts in the EleventyFest ficathon, way back in 2013. When I gave the prompt, though, I don't think I was expecting it to elicit anything as seriously good as this bit of prime Eleven-era fic. This is the fic I was going to rec last time around before being distracted, magpie-like, by another story by the same author, but this time I'm making very sure indeed to put this one front and centre.

The story follows the trail of a strange, and possibly deadly, presumably alien device across three time periods, and with three groups of investigators. In the Victorian era, Madame Vastra, her wife Jenny and the inimitable Strax are called in by Scotland Yard to consult in a case of multiple murders. Meanwhile in the late 1960s, G-Man Canton Everett Delaware III looks into a slew of missing persons against the backdrop of the countercultural anti-war movement and the Nixon administration. And finally in futuristic Scotland, the Doctor and the Ponds are drawn to a museum of extraterrestrial curiosities. The skill with which the author weaves these various strands together to tell a single story, using time travel pleasingly to tie the plot together, is only one of the several great things about this piece.

I especially enjoy the way the different eras each have their own distinctive style, from the Sherlockian stylings of Vastra and Jenny's nineteenth century adventures to the hardboiled inner monologue that drives Canton's sections (and I don't think you have to find him as cool a character as I do to really dig those parts). As with those of this author's other works that I have read, it is the characterisation and the voices that I find most compelling about this. Canton's private-eye-esque patter aside, the Doctor-Amy-Rory team TARDIS (one of my favourite of all time) really shine here, and even Strax gets one excellent, and very Strax-like, exchange.

I urge you - don't walk, (metaphorically) run over to the Teaspoon and read this one, and please be sure to tell the author how much you liked it.

Characters/Pairings: Amy Pond, Canton Everett Delaware III, Jenny Flint, Madame Vastra, River Song, Rory Williams, The Doctor (11th), plus Anthony Williams and OCs
Warnings: None

Recced because: I was actually planning to rec another fic by this author, and I came across this more or less at random while looking for the other one on her Teaspoon page yesterday...and loved it. And couldn't believe it had no reviews and decided the best way of remedying that with a vengeance was to get it out here on Calufrax. So win/win for me - I get to rec this magnificent fic and still have one in the hole for my next reccing stint! :D

In all seriousness, though, this is a great fic, written with excellent characterisation and just common sense, decency and humanity. You know, like the best fics are. The fact that it also ticks quite a few of my fannish boxes as regards the tail end of the Eleven era (the Capaldinator is obviously brilliant, but I'm unashamed to say Eleven remains "my" NuWho Doctor) certainly doesn't hurt either. I've made no secret of the fact that I was, and am, seriously dissatisfied with the ending Amy and Rory got in The Angels Take Manhattan, not even because of their fates but mainly because of the slapdash way it was all plotted and the way we were expected to swallow rl attempts to plaster over those plot holes by authorial "word of god", so this sort of semi-fix-it (it doesn't actually fix it, but makes its point by illustrating one of the several blatantly obvious ways that it could be fixed) will always hold a certain appeal for me. The fact that it's wise-guy G-Man Canton Everett Delaware III, still one of my all-time favourite one-shot Who guest characters, who gets to be the main instrument of that sort-of-fix-it is, for me, the shiny cherry on top.

The author gives Canton an OC boyfriend, fittingly also a smart-mouthed hard-boiled cop type, who is also the everyman observer of the Doctor's strange world, as they go about reuniting Canton, the Paternoster Row crew, Amy and Rory and their adopted son Anthony, and eventually River and Eleven himself, and even get a bit of fraught adventure along the way. Throughout, we are reminded deftly and thought-provokingly of the difficulties and dangers facing same-sex relationships over the ages, with Vastra and Jenny's relationship also portrayed with great perceptiveness and sensitivity. I think the main thing I like about this, though, is the obvious love for the diverse cast of characters; even the ones that don't get that many lines (Eleven, actually) are vividly portrayed; as I often say of fanfic I find has particularly true-to-life characterisations, you really can hear the voices as you read it.

So get over there and see what you think, and please leave some words of appreciation for the author...!

Recced because: The Doctor claims he can cook. Actually, as it turns out, the Doctor has always claimed that he could cook. This fic starts off with the Eleventh Doctor promising to cook a special meal for Amy and Rory, and then moves on to a series of flashbacks that show past Doctors, past companions, and past culinary (mis)adventures. Much of it is very funny, but there is also a wonderful depth to the writing, especially in the framing story of Eleven, Amy, and Rory.

Recced because: Many of [livejournal.com profile] wave_of_sorrow’s stories play with timelines in a way that  I love.  I chose this one to rec because I appreciate it on both a technical and emotional level. [livejournal.com profile] wave_of_sorrow pulled off writing this in a format with many extremely short, one-sentence paragraphs. It’s a format that can often drive me batty because some writers use it to scream "Look! Everything I'm writing is Important!" That wasn’t the case here, because the author wrote with emotional heft as well as economy. The story itself threatened to choke me up at times, with what  I consider a spot on illustration of the relative youth of both the Doctor and River in this situation. And of course River and Nine, two damaged souls, connect in fascinating ways. There was more than one spot where the tears threatened to come, despite the story's brevity.

Story: Ports of Call
Author: rutsky
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 1,192
Author's Summary: They eventually discovered he'd lied about New York
Characters/Pairings: Amy Pond/Rory Williams, River Song
Warnings: None as such, but does contain a good dose of grit and reality in its portrayal of Amy and Rory's post-Doctor relationship.

Recced because: I think it would be fair to say that I was, and definitely remain, a huge fan of the Eleventh Doctor and his era. I even, gods help me, genuinely think that New Who would have been very much the poorer without Steven Moffat's tenure as showrunner and that most (most!) of his judgments and instincts as writer and general head-honcho-type have been bang on the money. I recognise that as a whole the era had good stories and bad stories, as every Who era does, but I refuse to subscribe to arguments that it somehow declined in quality over the course of its run or that "it was time for a change". I'm very much enjoying the Twelve era so far and think Peter Capaldi is nothing less than a demigod in human form, but I could have lived with another season or two of Eleven, no problem at all.

Having said all of that (just so you know where I'm coming from)...

I @#&%ing hate The Angels Take Manhattan. Or at least its ill-conceived ending which, imho, fails on so many levels I'd be listing them all night and clocking up more words than the fic I'm theoretically reccing. Your mileage, as they used to say, and as is the case with all things fan-related, may and probably does vary. I consider it a poor exit for the two companions I consider to be probably the best (certainly when considered as a pair) of the 2005 series.

So, having laid my cards so verbosely on the table, I probably wouldn't classify this fic as a fix-it (which the author admits to being in two minds about) so much as a statement of the facts as they stood at the end of said story. One senses perhaps in reading the piece that the author was as nonplussed by that ending and as aware of its gaping plot-holes as I and, going from comments I read at the time, quite a lot of other people were. That's really beside the point, though. I'm not reccing this fic because its author happens to come down on my side in a fanw*nky argument, but because it highlights two really important things about the Eleven era.

The first of these is that Eleven was a bit of a slippery customer, morally. I'm not really convinced by some of the PR efforts to paint Twelve as a particularly edgy and ruthless Doctor, although he's certainly more up front about it, because it always seemed that Eleven got up to some dodgy stuff, more or less constantly and unapologetically (although he did tend to hide it behind his goof-ball exterior) and I think most of the time we the audience were supposed to notice that and think about it. I say most of the time, because some of the dodgiest stuff he did, though, particularly in his personal relationships, went more or less uncommented upon and indeed tacitly condoned "by the show", for want of a better term. I think even as big a fan of Eleven and his era and Moffat's work as I will admit to being, or indeed somebody really invested in the relationships between the characters, can see some of the morally problematic things that are going on there and wonder why "the show" seems unaware of them. It's an important aspect of the era and one I see confronted in too few fanworks. This one takes it head on; this Doctor's a liar, and not always for good reasons.

The other really important thing about the Eleven era this fic highlights and plays homage to, one of its central planks, is the relationship between Amy and Rory. These are two imperfect people (like all of us) and they have this very complicated, not always easy, bond but it ends up being one that they both draw strength from and one that neither of them can live without. This fic examines that complex relationship warts and all and the way Amy's and Rory's situation in Manhattan after parting from the Doctor might have affected it. It also confronts us with the incredible strength both of these characters have shown in adversity and the toll the sorts of adventures they have been involved in have taken upon them. I would say that that is the main selling point of this fic for me, apart from the fact that it is very well-written; it is unflinching in its consideration of how this situation might really play out. For a supposed "fix-it", it pulls few punches, either in its portrayal of the characters, their relationship and their predicament, or in considering the off-screen Doctor and his actions. And it does so not out of a desire to bash but out of a deep concern and investment in the material and the characters. Good stuff, in other words.

Anyway, thanks for reading my rant. Now go and read the fic and tell the author how much you liked it. ;)

Recc'ed Because: [livejournal.com profile] nancybrown wrote so many awesome stories for EleventyFest. Adventures, humor, slice of life, erotica; she wrote all of it and it was all brilliant. This one is a love story that unfolds from the stories we are more familiar with, turned unfamiliar as they are seen from an outsider POV. We get to know Eleven and the Ponds out of order, as just another few in the progression of regulars at a late-night cafe. And of course the timey-wimey family is a mystery, but they are only one story among many, and not necessarily the most important one for Megan.

Author’s Summary: So many years have passed since she was left behind with a clone of the man she loved. Desperate to return home, Rose Tyler was ready to do whatever it takes to make that happen. But something unexpected happens. She suddenly finds herself back in her own universe on a beach that resembles the very one she was visiting. And there, standing a short distance from her, was the Doctor.

Recced because: It doesn’t let the Doctor off the hook for just leaving Rose and the Metacrisis at Bad Wolf Bay without considering whether that was what they wanted, too. It tells a heartbreaking story of what happened to Rose and her family after the Doctor left them there, and how she comes to find him again, albeit in a different body than the one she knew him in. It also gives an interesting look into what Amy and Rory think of this newcomer to their group, and how they feel about her relationship with the Doctor as it relates to River Song.

Warnings: Recreational drug use

Recced Because:

I am actually astounded that no one has beat me to reccing this, because it is hilarious (it really should have a tea-near-keyboard warning on it), sexy, clever, and one of the overall best Eleven/Amy/Rory fics I've ever read. It continues such diverse marvels as: Eleven attempting to cook breakfast, Eleven being angry at primitive kitchen appliances, jokes about the UNIT dating controversy, futuristic petunias, Sharkrace 3000, and a scene inspired by this post from texts from the TARDIS.

There's so much going on that when I went to fill out the reccing form I was a bit stunned to realize it's only a little over 4000 words. And, however whacky it all gets, the character voices read true throughout. It's about the Ponds being a strange, dysfunctional, happy, ridiculous family who continue to be all of those descriptors whether they are rocketing across the cosmos on the back of a magical space whale, or sitting around the kitchen eating cereal.

Recced because: "The Angels Take Manhattan" left a giant-sized hole in canon for fic writers to fill: namely, how Amy and Rory spent their years in the past. Kaydee Falls posits quite reasonably that they could have met any number of characters with whom we're already familiar -- Martha during the Depression, Rose during Elizabeth II's coronation, Jack during World War II, and others. The characterization and voices are spot-on, and there's a gentle sense of humor that feels completely in keeping with the Ponds' unconventional relationship to each other, not to mention their unflappability when it comes to accepting the unusual, like a stranger in Barcelona, Spain berating himself for not mentioning something travels in time.

In the Power of Three the Doctor's companions came to a realization: it is next to impossible to lead two lives. But, the hardest choices are always between two good things, and, at the end of the episode, they decided to continue trying… Alas, then the Angels happened and they lost both options. And perhaps that was a kindness.

This tragic fic postulates what might've happened if they'd made a different decision; if both of them had made a different decision; if Amy had decided to keep travelling while keeping it a secret from her husband. Amy knows it's wrong. The Doctor knows it's wrong. And Rory… he probably knows. This fic is utterly heart-wrenching because, as I read it, I can't decide which course Amy should choose either, I only know, as she does, that not choosing will eventually end in tears.

I'd been hoping the author would finish in time for me to rec it this week on Calufrax, and what do you know? The ending popped up yesterday.

If you like the Hunger Games, read it. If you don't have prior knowledge of the Hunger Games, still read it if you like dark, AU fics, because it's brilliant, tragic, gritty, and disturbing, all wrapped up into one beautifully written package.









Capitol magic has made Amy beautiful again. The two smallest fingers of her left hand are taped to a jeweled splint while the bones heal, but she doesn't have a scar or blemish anywhere on her body. Her sunburn is gone, leaving nothing but sun-bronzed skin she knows she didn't come by honestly, because she has no tan lines. Her hair is clean and glossy, frothing around her shoulders in soft curls. She has nails again, shaped and painted. She's dressed in a long, white, sleeveless dress that flows in graceful folds down past her knees.



Jack says the dress is another goddess thing. It doesn't seem worth arguing. He paints her lying face last. It looks like there's something he wants to say, but in the end he just takes her hands, her beautiful, killing hands, and holds them gently in his own for a few moments before he leaves the room.

I'm notoriously inconsistent with my interests so there'll probably be a reasonable mixture here of classic Who, old Who, funny Who, angsty Who, and shippy Who. I hope you like the stories, by wonderful people, as much as I enjoyed them.

Story: Trust Me (I'm a Lying Liar Who Lies)
Author: [livejournal.com profile] elisi
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 22,082
Author's Summary: In which River is enigmatic, Martha is frustrated, Mickey is intrigued and the Doctor is a Pond.
Characters/Pairings: Amy Pond, Francine Jones, Martha Jones, Mickey Smith, Other Character(s), River Song, River Song, Rory Williams, The Doctor (11th), Tish Jones
Warnings: Swearing, action

Recced because: This is one author that I go back to over and over again. Seriously! Go give her love. That said, the reason I chose this fic in particular is because of the range of things it covers that just ring 'Doctor Who' in my books. Martha being awesome (another reason is because of her qualification this week in [livejournal.com profile] f_march_madness), the Doctor not being perfect, people being people and difficult and just... real. And warm. It's got laughs, and it's got bits that really take out your heart and stamp on it, but it's also got heart, and really, that's what a fic should be all about... It's a long one to start, but well worth the time to sit down, maybe with a cup of tea, and drink it all in.

Story: Too beautiful to live
Author: TygerTyger
Rating: teen
Word Count: 1702
Author's Summary: "I didn’t kick you out. I gave you up."
Characters/Pairings: Amy Pond, Rory Williams
Warnings:  trigger warnings for infertility, miscarriage and surgery trauma.

Recced because: Asylum of Daleks was without doubt my favourite episode of series 7A. Granted, it isn’t flawless, but the one thing it made absolutely clear I think is that travelling with the Doctor is not without risks and can leave scars. It was hard-breaking to learn that what Amy went through in ‘A Good Man Goes To War’ has in fact had serious consequences, and this fic explores that concept beautifully but also respectfully. The author describes it as ‘tough to write, and likely tough to read’, and I agree with that. It turns one of the most memorable visual moments of the episode into something else entirely, but somehow it fits. Most of all though, it is a bittersweet study of Amy and Rory and their relationship, and it fits into the series seamlessly.

 I was going to rec it in combination with another story by pocketmouse; second and third definitions, but that fic was recced not so long ago (all the better, it is well worth a read). During one of my late-night treks through the teaspoon I stumbled upon them one after the other, and consequently they are now forever linked in my mind. I encourage you to read this one first and then (re)read Pocketmouse’s story.

Oh and as always, let the author know what you think.

Story: The Boy Waits
Author: HermitKnut
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 3,714
Author's Summary: We know so much about Amelia Pond. But what made Rory who he is today?
Characters/Pairings: Eleventh Doctor, Rory williams, a dash of Amelia Pond.
Warnings: References to child abuse

Recced because: I admit it. I'm a sucker for well-written hurt/comfort. And boy does HermitKnut fulfill that desire. While I'm more of Nine and Ten gal, I love this version of the Doctor and I absolutely adore this Rory Williams (I'm sorry, Rory Pond.). This was written before season 7, where Rory was a blank slate except from loving Amy Pond and being a nurse. And he does these things in The Boy Waits too, but we get hints of a very difficult past. Nothing is graphically described, but one doesn't need a lot of imagination to paint a vivid picture of Rory's childhood. Rory becomes all the more lovely in his gentleness, patience and love because of it.

Excerpt:
“Rory Pond,” he repeats, his voice quieter now, slightly more serious. “You’ve always followed her, haven’t you?” )

Story: Could Be A Little More Sonic
Author: Ravarath
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 2207
Characters: Amy Pond, Rory Williams, Rose Tyler, The Doctor (11th), The Doctor (Duplicate 10th), The TARDIS, The TARDIS
Author's Summary: Ever wondered why the Eleventh Doctor's sonic screwdriver malfunctioned when he first met Amelia Pond? (Slightly spoiler-ish for "The Eleventh Hour.")
Warnings: None
Recced because: I stumbled across this while I was looking for another story (which turned out to have been recced previously), and laughed like a drain when I read it. A nice little explanation for an odd moment in The Eleventh Hour, which harks back to an earlier episode in the Doctor's life, from an author who hasn't been recced on Calufrax before.



It started innocently enough, so innocuous that Rose hardly noticed the difference.

The Doctor's attention had been absorbed by a small pile of alien technology he'd brought home (against regulations) from Torchwood, when he heard a rather loud hiss of frustration from the other room. "Rose?" He called, slipping his glasses off the bridge of his nose. "Everything alright?"

There a muffled answer, followed by an audible sigh. A moment later, Rose strode into his office, irritation clear in her expression. "This bloody flat is gonna be the death of me."

The Doctor sat up straighter, glancing around for the source of her foul mood. He wouldn't purport to be an authority on the quality of flats, but he thought theirs wasn't too shabby at all: two bedrooms, a cozy sitting room, decent bathroom, and a very quaint little kitchen. They were also just a block away from a wonderful row of little shops. What more could a human need?

Story: Just Because They Protect You Doesn't Mean They Like You
Author: Nancy Brown
Rating: Adult
Word Count: 14122
Characters: Amy Pond, Ianto Jones, Jack Harkness, Owen Harper, Rory Williams, The Doctor (11th)
Author's Summary: Working for Torchwood Cardiff means dealing every day with aliens, time travellers, annoying co-workers, and worst of all, tourists. A day in the life of someone who'd rather be somewhere else.
Warnings: Swearing
Recced because: When I started reading this I was drinking coffee, and ended up with coffee over my keyboard. It's fun and extremely silly, a day in the life of Torchwood 3. Warts and all...

Before the excerpt I should mention the introduction, which adds a few more warnings including "language, character death, necrophilia, dub-con, excessive whining, incredibly offensive humour." I don't find it offensive, but tastes differ



Cardiff, Wales, United Kingdom

6:13AM

***

The noise broke into the middle of Ianto's dream: a raucous buzzing and tweeting, like the repetitious caw of a thousand angry ... somethings. Birds? The dream morphed into terror -- giant, slouching, with skeletal black wings and razor-like beak -- then scattered to rags as he opened his eyes.

The noise continued.

Everything was dark. Ianto thrashed his limbs, did not encounter another body but did manage to unwind the blanket he'd wrapped around himself twice as he half-rolled, half-fell onto the floor. As he became more alert, he saw that he was nowhere near his bed but in fact had slept naked in the wardrobe.

His mobile kept ringing. He stumbled to where he'd dropped it on the night stand, flipped it open, and said in a sleep-roughened voice, "Yeah?"

"I woke you up."

Ianto rubbed a hand over his face. Events from the previous night made their presence known in his memory, pickled with a bit too much whisky and aged about three hours. "Did you catch the Weevil, then?" When the call came, Jack had kissed him stupid and told him to stay put. As Ianto had just experienced a fantastic orgasm, backed up against the wall of his wardrobe and buffered by shirts and suit coats, he hadn't been in the mood to argue.

"Yeah. Piece of cake. I didn't want to wake you, so I came back here."

"Thanks."

"I need you to get dressed and head in." Jack's tone was apologetic, but Ianto heard the distinct sound of his lover sliding back into boss mode. Jack may have sucked Ianto's brains out through points south last night, but this morning, he was all work.

It's been fun reccing this week! I hope you all have a wonderful season and enjoy whatever holidays you might celebrate!

Story: Double Dose
Author: rutsky
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 1268
Author's Summary: In which the Doctor is reminded that in-jokes can be annoying to the uninitiated and absolutely necessary to mental health for those who coin them.
Characters/Pairings: Amy Pond, Eleventh Doctor, Rory Williams
Warnings: None
Recced because: I was debating what to do about my last rec for the week and then I stumbled upon this story, which is just lovely, and a perfect fit because of the holidays. It manages to to address an aspect of Amy and Rory's timey-wimey lives in a way that is both humorous and bittersweet, and feels very real. The character details are spot-on, and it really hits the right emotional notes.  I'm not usually the biggest fan of Christmas fic, but I loved this--it's cute without being sappy, and just a really great little story overall.

Story: Second and Third Definitions
Author: pocketmouse
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 1932
Author's Summary: A little reinforcement never hurt anyone. [spoilers for Asylum of the Daleks]
Characters/Pairings: Amy Pond/Rory Williams
Warnings: None
Recced because: This is a sweet and in-character look at Amy and Rory and how they come back together in earnest after "Asylum of the Daleks." Pocketmouse has very deft character touches--you can feel both the lingering awkwardness from Amy and Rory's split and the undercurrent of warmth between them. The Ponds are notoriously bad at having serious conversations, and this feels quite like how they might start trying to improve. Plus, the end is just kind of adorable.

Greetings, [livejournal.com profile] calufrax! I'm [livejournal.com profile] ladymercury_10 (Lady Mercury on the Teaspoon) and I will be your reccer this week. I mostly have Eleven-era recs for you, but I've tried to make sure there is a good range of different sorts of stories, and I do have some recs from other eras as well. Here we go!

Story: this song is the cross that I bear
Author: coffeesuperhero
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 4828
Author's Summary: It was the TARDIS that changed everything.
Characters/Pairings: Amy Pond, River Song, Rory Williams, The Doctor (11th), The TARDIS
Warnings: None.
Recced because: This is the River Song backstory that we really needed post-"Let's Kill Hitler" and haven't gotten from canon. It has family bonding--both with Amy and Rory and with the TARDIS, it dips into River's academic endeavors and her human-plus capabilities, and it gives weight to the other centers of gravity in her life besides the Doctor. The characterizations are all really great, and the scene with River and Rory is particularly lovely.

Story: Detectives, Adventurers and Girls Who Don't Wait Around: The Paradox of Amelia J. Williams
Author: LizBee
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 2,808
Author's Summary: Between her debut in 1938 and her death in 1993, Amelia Williams probably wrote over five hundred novels, short stories and articles.
Characters/Pairings: Amy Pond, Rory Williams
Warnings: None

Recced because: Amy Williams: kissogram, model, travel writer ... and incredibly prolific pulp and children's fiction author, too. This "essay" reviews Williams' career and her work's impact on children (and adults) of all ages, including some children and adults you'll no doubt find familiar.

I love everything about this story – its detailed history of how Amy's writing evolved over the years; the sly references to other Whoniverse characters; the Photoshopped book covers; and especially, the style in which it's written and the "author" to whom it's attributed. In fact, there's only thing that disappoints me about it: that Williams' books don't really exist, so I can't read them.

Author's Summary:  The Doctor finds a new sonic screwdriver. 
Characters/Pairings: The Doctor (11th), River Song, Rory Williams, Amy Pond
Warnings: None listed -- Adult (sexual) concepts

Recced because: The Doctor is adorably ignorant about certain aspects of human sexuality, and Amy and Rory's reaction is priceless. And really, only the Doctor could mistake a sex toy for a sonic screwdriver...

Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 39,894
Author's Summary: The Doctor, Amy, and Rory visit a tropical planet where the people are supposed to be peaceful. Something's gone horribly wrong and as they try to help, Rory learns more about the Doctor. Set between Amy's Choice & Hungry Earth in series 5, following my earlier story, Sleepwalking.
Characters/Pairings: Amy Pond, Other Character(s), Rory Williams, The Doctor (11th)
Warnings: Action/Adventure, Character Study, Hurt/Comfort, Introspection

Recced because: Ahhh, I DO love a good Team!TARDIS 'case-fic' - and this author always knows how to deliver! I've recced her once before - and if you read that rec, you know you are in for a good time. She gives equal attention and love to these characters and tells a story that will have you pulled in and reading loooooong past your bedtime. This is another one of those stories. Adventure, action, introspection and hurt/comfort all with a fantastic mystery at the heart of it all, leaving you eager to uncover the truth along with our merry band of misfits. She draws a mental picture that seems so real it's staggering - and you are given the feeling of traipsing along happily with our ficcy heroes, walking right beside them as they live the adventure you are reading!

Really, I'd love to stop and give you more glowing accolades and teasing hints to the work of this author (as is my standard MO), but you see, I have this fiction I have to re-read and well...

Story: you in the wake
Author: Lady Mercury
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 4,645
Author's Summary: Rory gets up tired. Amy makes the tea. The rosebushes may not last the year.
Characters/Pairings: Amy Pond, Other Character(s), Rory Williams, The Doctor (11th)
Warnings: Angst, Character Study, General, Hurt/Comfort, Introspection

Recced because: I was watching 'Vincent and the Doctor' with my kiddos tonight and thinking about characters, quirks and POVs - and how we (sometimes) see ourselves reflected in the people around us. I thought about our moods and how they can be reflected by what is (and sometimes what is not) there. Then I thought about mental disorders and how they can be reflected physically and vice versa.

Then I thought about this fiction.

Lady Mercury has a fantastic understanding and grasp of the subtle. The things that stare you in the face as they lay underneath. Her fiction never fails to move and grab me. Like the fiction I recced yesterday, this one is based around a main character - but not the Doctor himself. And this is another one of those fictions where the Doctor is very much present even as he is not there. This is also a fiction about a very pivotal character, though (like with Vincent) his importance is often understated and veiled - even as it looks you in the face all the same.

Rory has always been one of my favorite characters and there are so very many, many reasons. And the consequences and stakes for him are just as high as for anyone else - but he is so very different from the Companions the Doctor usually travels with. I could go on along this vein for a very long time *laughs* but suffice to say, you will likely see the parallel between what I watched tonight with my kiddos and what is reflected in this fic (and what we sometimes see reflected in ourselves based off of expectations and motives of others). Yes. The fiction is that complex, even as it is very much softly simple. And it is one that stays with you for a long time afterwards.

This week, Who fans are mourning the departure of Amy and Rory from the TARDIS, so here’s a story devoted to them.

Story: Its Eyes Are for the Stars
Author: Canaan ([livejournal.com profile] canaana on LJ)
Rating: Adult
Word Count: 5378
Author's Summary: The Doctor thinks he's so old, but Rory remembers two thousand years.
Characters/Pairings: Amy Pond, Jack Harkness, Rory Williams, The Doctor (11th; )Amy/Rory, pre-Eleven/Amy/Rory
Warnings: explicit sex

Reced because: I love Rory Williams. I’m fond of Amy, but I adore Rory. He is a classic of a certain type of Companion -- the ordinary person who discovers how extraordinary he really is. In this story, Amy questions Rory about the nearly two thousand years he spent as a plastic Roman soldier guarding her in the Pandorica. He tells her about some of the people he knew and cared about during that long vigil.

This is a story about love and friendship and sex, and the ways that they do (or don’t) overlap. And like all of Canaan’s stories, it is beautifully written.

Excerpt )


Go, read, and if you enjoy, please let the author know.
[identity profile] trdimension.livejournal.com

Amy and Rory's relationship - with each other and with the Doctor - is the focus of the TV show at the moment. Everything seems to revolve around how they live (or don't) when the Doctor isn't around. But curiously, we very rarely actually see them without the Time Lord. Here's what they say and do when the TARDIS disappears.

Story: All Paths Leading Forward
Author: Queen of the Castle
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 2463
Author's Summary: As Amy watched the TARDIS disappear, Rory thought that some part of her went with it.
Characters: Amy Pond, River Song, Rory Williams
Warnings: None

Recced because: This is a lovely little piece that takes familiar scenes from the series - often shortly after the TARDIS has left Amy and Rory behind - and spins off in new directions, placing the focus wholly on the companions. We get to see how the Ponds react to their life on Earth, without the Doctor, and get some fascinating insights into how they view a life outside of time and space.

Author's Summary: “Is it poisoned?” Amy asks. The difficulty he has focusing on her probably means that it is, but he’s not about to tell her that.
Characters/Pairings: Amy Pond, Rory Williams, The Doctor (11th), The TARDIS
Warnings: no standard warnings apply

Recced because: If you like hurt/comfort stories, you'll like this story. It's a take on "The Doctor gets shot with a poisoned dart," but this hurt/comfort story is charming.

Story: The Doctor, the Nurse and the Queen
Author: mmgage
Rating: All Ages/PG
Word Count: 93,176
Author's Summary: A visit to an Earth-like planet turns complicated when the Doctor is injured, and Rory and Amy are pulled into court intrigue. 11/Amy/Rory friendship, and a little DoctorWhump! too.
Characters/Pairings: Eleventh Doctor, Amy Pond, Original Companion, Rory Williams,
Warnings: None - Action/Adventure, Hurt/Comfort

Recced because: This fiction is just...WOW. mmgage is one of my favorites. Her tales are always well plotted, her characters gorgeous, her fiction so well written you can SEE IT ALL HAPPENING - and her pacing is beyond delicious. I literally wait on pins and needles for each chapter of her work - and I am never, EVER disappointed. This is a rather longish tale, but oh-so-worth taking the time to read! This was one of those fictions that sucked me in and had me reading long past my bedtime, wishing I could stop the clock so I could revel in the Awesome of the story for just a little while longer. Lost sleep over this - but it was necessary - as I had to see what happened next! Gorgeous scenery, wonderful OCs (and I'm picky about OCs in ANY tale) and a plot that will hook you and have you running back again and again to enjoy. Don't deprive yourself! READ THIS FIC!!

Story: Half Sick of Shadows
Author: EAWeek
Rating: Adult/R
Word Count: 58,450
Author's Summary: The barren planet Gossan holds a powerful secret, one that is somehow connected to River Song’s release from prison. Can River and the Eleventh Doctor defeat the Papal Mainframe, or will they become its prisoners for all eternity?
Characters/Pairings: Amy Pond/Rory Williams, Madame Kovarian, River Song/Eleventh Doctor, Other Doctors, OCs
Warnings: Explicit Sex, Explicit Violence, Swearing - Action/Adventure, Horror, Mystery, Romance

Recced because: Well, quite frankly, I urged EAWeek to get a Teaspoon account so I could REC THIS FIC, if that tells you anything. I'm not a shipper (or rather, my ships are slashy rarepair), so in general Doctor/River is not my ship. But this fiction is so flawless, it made me ship them - if only for this fiction alone! A gorgeous tale that has perfect characterisation and all the action and adventure you could ever ask for from a Doctor Who fic. It also gives us a bit of background into Doctor Song's early years, as well as some startling insights into The Doctor himself (both current and past). A fiction that goes from the beginning to the end of The Stormcage and takes on the Silence in a big way you just won't see anywhere else. The real question is - how could I not rec this fiction?

Hello, hello all!! I'm [livejournal.com profile] a_phoenixdragon (PhoenixDragon) - and I am your reccer this week! *Waves* I know I am severely behind, so I figured I would treat you with two nummy recs today (spaced out over the day) and two nummy recs tomorrow (same routine) - and we'll get back to normal by Friday! I'm normally a 'darkficcer' by nature - but you will find these recs range all a manner of genres - and hopefully there will be something for everyone! So let's get to the first rec!

Story: Faces
Author: Lyricwritesprose
Rating: All Ages/PG
Word Count: 2161
Author's Summary: The Doctor explains regeneration to Rory and Amy. Set shortly after the end of "The Big Bang."
Characters/Pairings: AmyPond, Rory Williams, Eleventh Doctor
Warnings: Introspection, Missing Scene

Recced because: I'm a sucker for a fantastically penned Doctor - and we all know Lyricwritesprose has that arena covered for every Doctor imaginable. I'm also a sucker for a good tale from Rory's POV - and she covered that flawlessly as well! This has fast become one of my favorites, because it is a quiet moment after all the excitement - time to catch one's breath and reflect. The Doctor makes the most of that time and tells Amy and Rory the risks are not theirs to take - and why. There is a lovely moment where the Doctor chides Rory and it starts the conversation from there. The Regen conversation never really seems to come up - when is there time? But why did Amy and Rory not freak out more at the beginning of S6 when the Doctor started to regenerate? As always this author explains all that and so much more, with a flair and style that pulls you into the story and keeps you riveted until the end!
