Story: A Goblin or a Trickster or a Warrior
Author: Awdures
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 1,336
Author's Summary: "There was a goblin, or a trickster or a warrior. A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos." That's not the real start of the story of course. This is the rest of the fairytale.
Characters/Pairings: None
Warnings: None

Recced because: I found this to be quite fascinating, in the most chilling way. I...really can't think of any more to say; it's just...scary and amazing, and you will not be disappointed.

Title: The Time Lord's Handbook of Regeneration
Author: Awdures
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 3799
Author's Summary: The Doctor really does never have simple, easy regenerations. There's a good reason for that.
Characters/Pairings: Doctors 1 through 11
Warnings: None

Recc'ed Because: The Doctor's regenerations over the years are the change points that help define both his continuity and his differences. I must admit when I was confronted with the vast history of Classic Who after being introduced through New Who, my first instinct was not to watch in order but to start with all of the endings. And as such, with all of the beginnings as well. This is a series of vignettes that take us through each experience, at the best what may be considered an appendix of cautionary tales for the titular pamphlet. One constant amid the change: the Doctor never does anything by the book.

Confession: I think, over time, I've decided that the Fifth Doctor, despite being introduced to the Fourth Doctor first via Who repeats on PBS, is my Doctor.  He dressed very comfortably, treated his companions as equals  and always tried to inspire bravery in all of them except for Kamelion.  Here's a rec from that era with one of Fivey's companions and how Fivey helps to soothe his angst.

Story: Waking and Sleeping
Author: Awdures
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 3194
Author's Summary: Turlough's contract with the Black Guardian is at an end, but he's still struggling to shake off the experience.
Characters/Pairings: Turlough
Warnings: Explicit Violence
Recced because: This is an amazing character piece dealing with Turlough after the events of "Enlightenment." Despite being free of the Black Guardian's contract, Turlough still dreams of the Guardian's voice and killing the Doctor. He needs the help of the Doctor to shake off these dreams. Awdures does a good job of detailing Turlough's nightmares and the Guardian's voice. I couldn't stop reading this fic, and I was disappointed when it ended. Highly recommending if you like Turlough or Fivey's era.
