Metaltron here again! For day three of my domination of all things fiction on here we’re zipping back to the Troughton era for a nice little ficlet on one of my favourite undervalued Doctor Who Companions.

Story: Scream
Author: alouzon
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 1181
Author's Summary: Victoria screams a lot. But we already know that.
Characters/Pairings: 2nd Doctor, Jamie/Victoria
Warnings: None

Recced because: I often like to sing the praises of un-beloved companions like Victoria, and it seems the case that one criticism of her character by others can be her tendency to scream blue murder. Here though alouzon writes about that very supposed in-perfection and its history in Victoria’s life even before meeting the Doctor, the very fact that anyone would scream at the sort of things she runs into with the Doctor in the TARDIS, and brings it all down to a sweet little quiet moment of romance for her and Jamie. I do love Zoe with Jamie in the series but it is my opinion that Jamie and Victoria are quite the perfect match – the brave and protective highlander and his English lass with a determined resolve behind that seemingly timid, flighty facade.

I'll reccing a variety of fics this week, for the first rec I bring a Victoria story.

Story: Lessons
Author: alouzon
Rating: all ages
Word Count: 1326
Author's Summary: Just an ordinary evening on board the TARDIS.
Characters/Pairings: Victoria Waterfield, Jamie McCrimmon
Warnings: None

Recced because: Victoria being the focus of fic is rare and alouzon writes her and the story around her so beautifully. Jamie is seamlessly woven into the story without overshadowing Victoria in the slightest but still gets a nice bit of the story. This is a little gem and defintely worth a read.
