Story: Still the Same
Author: audreyii_fic
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 1578
Author's Summary: S7, pre-TATM. Rory is done traveling; Amy is not. (Follows themes of The Power of Three.)
Characters/Pairings: Amy Pond, Rory Williams, Eleven
Warnings: N/A

Recced because:

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.

Title: Quick Sacrifices
Author: audreyii_fic
Rating: Adult
Word Count: 5632
Author's Summary: Malfunctioning copulation detectors on war-mad clockwork half-goats can really complicate a day; luckily, Amy's there to help. Shameless S5 trope!smut.
Characters/Pairings: Eleven/Amy from early on in season 5
Warnings: Explicit sex, swearing

Recc'ed Because: According to the author: "This happened because I read the entire Eleven-Era Kink Meme in two days. My fanfic motto: EMBRACE ALL THE TROPES. I regret nothing." Folks, there is nothing to regret here: it is a glorious trope fic. An "aliens sort of make them do it" fic? Or maybe a "shag to save the world" fic. But unlike the way some of these tropes can go dark and angsty, this one stays firmly in the "hot and hilarious" category, yet still managing to keep enough away from full-on crack fic to add some subtler depth of character as well. It's a particular trope that one needs to handle with care to get right, but the author does that; keeping each character true, and I also appreciate how the situation unfolds in a way that the eventual sexytimes are consensual and more of a consummation of an underlying desire on both sides. DID I MENTION THERE ARE ALSO ROBOT GOATS? Did I? It's that kind of fic. There is also a breezy style, pitch-perfect Eleven and Amy banter (yes, he never stops talking...), and I laughed so hard, but yeah, also, it's totally hot.
