Story: The Less Than Perfect Daughter
Author: nonelvis
Rating: Teen
Author's summary: Martha is pregnant, but Rose just won't take responsibility. How can the Doctor convince his companion that sometimes in this life, you've got to step up and do domestic? (Written for violetisblue's Afterschool Special prompt on the LJ churchontime comm.)
Characters/Pairings: Rose/Martha, Ten
Warnings: none
Word Count: ~2,900

Recced because: This is a hysterical bit of crackfic, with a great, breezy style that's indeed very reminiscent of a Very Special Issue TV movie. The characters are exaggerated in just the right ways to suit the story, and in particular I found the Doctor's attempts to promote an (almost traditional) two-parent family a riot. Fun, fresh, cracky – perfect for a weekend!

Story: In An Interstellar Burst
Author: such_heights
Rating: Teen
Author's summary: Donna's got a teleport, Rose has an aversion to beaches, and maybe Martha's not quite as done with all of this as she thought. Next stop: everywhere.
Characters/Pairings: Donna, Rose/Martha
Warnings: none
Word Count: ~3,000 words

Recced because: A delightful little AU, wherein three excellent companions find a solution to all the problems presented in Journey's End and go out to explore the universe together. The friendship between the women is terrific (and Rose and Martha's relationship is subtle and hot), and it's comedic without being silly, sweet without being sappy, and lots of fun.

Story: Stray Birds of Summer
Author: livii
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 1781
Author's summary: "The Doctor, despite how he shows off, can’t do quite everything, you know." The TARDIS is hiding some secrets.
Characters/Pairings: Martha/Rose
Warnings: Sureality. Lovely, lovely sureality.

Recced because: Crazy, surreal, beautiful femmeslash where Martha wanders into an unfamiliar part of the TARDIS and meets one of the ghosts in the machine. The prose is very dreamlike and it might all be a dream after all or a dream of a memory—and if someone is dreaming it, who is? The Doctor? The TARDIS? Martha? There's no definite answer to any of it, just a bit of birdsong, and that's all the better. I've only recently discovered this fic but I already know it'll be one I'll be coming back to again and again.

Story: Happiness and Satisfaction
Author: Netgirl_y2k
Rating: All ages
Word count: 1633
Author's summary: 'Martha, I'm from another universe, would you like to go for a drink?'
Characters/pairings: Rose/Martha, Jackie Tyler, Romana II
Warnings: None

Recced because: Well, I'm slightly biased as this was written for me as part of the ficathon on [livejournal.com profile] rose_lives, but meh, it's wondeful and deserves to be recced. Netgirl_y2k manages to get Rose's voice just perfect and there's not a lot of authors who can do that, in my opinion. In fact, there's a wonderful exchange between Jackie and Rose in the beginning which I can visualise so perfectly. It also shows both Rose and Martha saving the universe and being generally rather awesome as well as dealing with the sometimes awkward first stages of a relationship. I am rather in love with this ship, so even if they don't ever meet, I'm happy because I'll have fics like this to read.

Story: An Introduction to Space Travel
Author: Netgirl_y2k
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 5025
Author's summary:
Characters/Pairings: Martha/Rose, Romana, Jack
Warnings: none, unless you want AU warnings

Recced because: There are three things about this fic that I absolutely love: it has femmeslash (my favorite genre after gen), it's an alternate universe (another favorite genre of mine), and it has Romana, Rose and Martha working together sans Doctor and kicking arse perfectly well without him. One of the things I love in Doctor Who fanfic is Companions Are Doing It For Themselves and this is a damn good example of the trope. (Not to mention that Netgirl_y2k is an awesomely fun and funny writer and it was really difficult for me to choose just one fic of hers to rec, because they're all good. I ended up picking this one because Calufrax really does deserve more femmeslash recs.)

Anyhow, I just really like this fic. A lot. Enough that I think everyone should read it. It has me willing to overlook the random typo and it's not every fic that can do that.

Story: OTP Forever
Author: bytheseaside
Rating: Adult
Author's Summary: Revenge is sweet femslash.
Characters/Pairings: Tenth Doctor/Martha Jones, Martha Jones/Rose Tyler, Tenth Doctor/TARDIS
Warnings: None

Recced because: Because you can't beat good crack!fic, that's why. Also, I am of the opinion that this fandom is in desperate need of more femslash; especially with this pairing. The author manages to highlight the fact that the Doctor continues to talk about Rose after she's gone, despite being written before Series 3 aired. All in all; a very funny story. Plus, any fic that features Doctor/TARDIS can't be bad.
