Story: Professors
Author: AND
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 540
Author's Summary: The professors of the Time Lord Academy look into the futures of the incoming class - a class including the future Master and Doctor.
Warnings: None
Recced because:
I have an extra short story for Friday, but it’s a fun one!  This relates how the academy professors feel about their latest class.  If the future foretold for any class could inspire them to get falling-down drunk, surely it was the class that contained both the Master and the Doctor.  I hope you enjoy this quick read; tomorrow’s rec is a lot longer.

Author's Summary:
Does Donna really need to remember her travels with the Doctor to unlock the confidence and strength she found on her travels with him? Doesn't that suggest that there's something wrong with living on Earth? Sarah Jane and Torchwood gang up to save Donna - one way or another.
Alan Jackson, Clyde Langer, Donna Noble, Ianto Jones, Jack Harkness, Luke Smith, Maria Jackson, Mickey Smith, Other Character(s), Sarah Jane Smith, The Doctor (10th), The Doctor (Author Created).... phew...

None, although a touch of language near the beginning.

Recced because:

I love this story. Period. It's a Donna-centric AU, where Team TARDIS get a bit narked that the Doctor wiped Donna's memories, and try to help her as much as they can. After they find her a job, Donna does a little bit of Donna-iness, and she slowly puts her life back together again. Yes, I know that it's been recced before, but seriously, it's worth reccing twice. Watch out for the suprise twist ending :-) A great story, with incredible characterisations.

Story: No Rest for the Wicked
Author: AND ([livejournal.com profile] neadods)
Rating: Adult
Author's summary: The Doctor, suicidal after the Time War, meets a younger, more innocent self - and decides to rewrite history.
Characters/Pairings: Evelyn Smythe, Six/Nine
Warnings: Explicit Sex
Word Count: 1523

Recced because: I really enjoy glimpses of the ninth Doctor pre-Rose because it allows for a much darker and often more dangerous Doctor than we see in the TV series. AND's Nine is written well in this dark mood, while the sixth Doctor, often written as cruel, is believably innocent. While there is sex in this fic (and yes, you did read that Six/Nine tag correctly) it's really secondary to the exploration of the Doctor's post-Time War guilt.

Author’s summary:  Does Donna really need to remember her travels with the Doctor to unlock the confidence and strength she found on her travels with him? Doesn't that suggest that there's something wrong with living on Earth? Sarah Jane and Torchwood gang up to save Donna - one way or another.
Characters/Pairings: Donna Noble, Sarah Jane Smith, Jack Harkness, Martha Jones, Ianto Jones, Mickey Smith, Clyde Langer, Luke Smith, Maria Jackson, Alan Jackson, Wilfred Mott, Other Character(s) - including some surprise Old-School companions
Warnings: None

Reason for Recommendation: Donna Noble is awesome. It's as simple as that. And so is Team TARDIS, or more properly the Doctor's 'biggest family in the universe'. AND set out to prove, in this story, that there is nothing less awesome about being a human being, living a life on Earth, than there is about travelling in the TARDIS with the Doctor. With or without the Doctor, with or without her memories of being with him Donna is awesome and has potential to be more awesome still. Oh, and the Doctor is a complete wanker - and that's a direct quote. I absolutely love the team effort in this story, from the Torchwood gang to Sarah Jane's crew to Martha and assorted others (Mickey and Jack's early conversation is side-splittingly hilarious), and the way they combine to - metaphorically - bang the Doctor's head against the wall of his own emo. AND writes Donna brilliantly too. Watch for Donna's meeting with the baby-faced man from Wales - and my favourite scene, close to the end, with the wonderful Wilf.

In the spirit of the holiday, I have 2 christmas stories I'd like to share. Here's the first:

Story: Naughty or Nice
Author: AND
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 2196
Author's Summary: "Doctor," the Brigadier said wearily from behind them, "surely you're not going to tell Miss Shaw and myself that St. Nicholas is an evil alien bent on conquering the Earth."
Characters/Pairings: Third Doctor, Liz Shaw, the Brigadier
Warnings: None

Recced because: This story is absolutely adorable. The voices are excellent, the plot is cracktastically plausible for the era, and it made me grin from ear to ear. It even has a surprisingly poignant ending. Perfect holiday piece.

a small taste... )

Story: Chance Encounter
Author: AND
Wordcount: 2753
Rating: All Ages
Author's Summary: Martha meets someone unexpected at the hospital.
Characters/Pairings: Martha Jones, Sarah Jane Smith, Luke Smith

Recced because: Okay, so, I really like Martha Jones, especially post-Doctor, because I think she is kickass and awesome. I also really like Sarah Jane Smith, especially with Luke, because I think she is also kickass and awesome. Therefore, Martha plus Sarah Jane plus references to the Year That Never Was plus Harriet Jones, Made of Win equals one excellent fic.

Seriously, it's a well-done look at two ex-companions meeting and commiserating re: Ten, with an interesting new take on how and why they met. We get some nods to the end of series three and to Harriet Jones, as well as Tom and bits of Luke, and, of course...

this exchange. )

Thanks for having me this week, guys!

Story: A Question of Jurisdiction
Author: AND
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 5,251
Author's Summary: "Why was it up to me to end the invasion of the Bane, Captain Torchwood?"
Characters/Pairings: Sarah Jane Smith, Jack Harkness, Luke Smith, Gwen Cooper, Ianto Jones, Owen Harper, Toshiko Sato
Warnings: None

Recced because: I admit I love the snarky fun that is this story. Sarah Jane and company have already saved the world from the Bane, but Jack wants to ride in like the big hero anyway. The dialogue is snappy, the tone cheeky, and Sarah demonstrates her competence. Again.
