Hi, guys! *waves* Looks like it's time for ol' Irish to break out some goodies! I've scrounged around, and I think I have some real treats for you to enjoy. ^.^ So! Let's get started.

Story: Marital Arguments
Author: betawho
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 493
Author's Summary: The Doctor and the Tardis are having an argument; neither of them is going to back down.
Characters/Pairings: The Twelfth Doctor, the TARDIS
Warnings: None

Recced because: I was all set to start off with another of this writer's brilliant Eleven/River fics. Then I saw this, which was posted just last week, and I knew I needed to go in a different direction.

This is hilarious, cute as all get-out, and perfectly written. I seriously want this in an episode, because I can just see the look Capaldi would have on his face while delivering his end of the dialogue. His voice is flawlessly captured. You'll have a huge smile on your face after reading this gem!

Author's Summary: Sometimes the best and worst parts of your life are the same thing.
Characters/Pairings: Eleventh Doctor/River Song
Warnings: None

Recced because: I always wait eagerly for this author's fics, and I am never let down when they arrive. This short gem is every bit as sexy-fun-cute as Eleven and River themselves.

Story: A Moment’s Peace

Author: [livejournal.com profile] betawho

Rating: All ages

Wordcount: 268

Author’s Summary: There's no point in running all over time and space, if you can't stop and appreciate the moment. — Includes a hammock and River Song.

Characters/Pairings: the Eleventh Doctor/River Song

Recced because: I’ve rec’ed at least one exquisitely uncomfortable story this week. Having done so,  I find I need to return to an author who has provided me with some of the most comfortable and comforting pieces of fiction it’s been my pleasure to consume. [livejournal.com profile] betawho loves one of my favorite couples, Eleven and River, and reading this particular little piece is definitely a tiny, high-quality gem of the sort that leaves one smiling. (If, like me, you’re an Eleven/River fan who occasionally enjoy pieces of fluff that make you go “awwww” without getting too gummed up in sweetness, I’d recommend a large slice of the author’s oeuvre.)

A taste: Nope, this one is too short — just go and enjoy it!

This is one of my #1 favorite fics, and I've reread it countless times because it's such a gem. It's short, sweet, and is sure to brighten anyone's day immensely.

Story: Crossings
Author: Betawho
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 1370
Author's Summary: Rory always knew the Doctor had other friends on Earth. He just never expected to meet one.
Characters/Pairings: Rory Williams, Sarah Jane Smith
Warnings: None.

Recced because: Stories where Companions meet out of the usual contexts, without knowing their connection, are always fun. Here Sarah Jane needs a little first aid, and just happens to end up being treated by nurse Rory Williams...

Story: Daddy's Girl
Author: betawho
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 1196
Author's Summary: Somebody makes Mels cry and little Rory goes and sorts them out.
Characters/Pairings: Mels, Rory
Warnings: None

Recced because: While we got a glimpse of Mels growing up alongside her parents, there are just so very many possibilities to explore during those years. This story very concisely draws out a number of things that will only make sense to Rory later and that mean the world to Mels at the time. It's heartwarming and sweet, and it ends just perfectly.

Story: Appearances Can Be Deceiving
Author: betawho
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 6755
Author's Summary: It was irritating enough having to deal with one Doctor; Peri didn't think she'd have to deal with two. Or have to deal with herself, an other self, a different self. She stared at the other Peri, with her one hoop earring, her biker boots, and her Bowie knife. Okay, that was just weird.
Characters/Pairings: Six, Peri, AU!Six, AU!Peri
Warnings: None

Recced because: Betawho has a great Peri voice and has her and Six's dynamic down pat; plus, this story showcases an interesting take on regeneration, an original planet that I'd love to visit, and two fascinating character studies. However, none of those things are the reason I'm reccing this.

I'm reccing this story for its very last line.

You'll know why when you read it.


Sunlight dappled the dales and fields below, glinting off the rippling river. Meadows were a virtual jubilation of flowers, reds and purples and yellows. She'd much prefer to be down there collecting specimens, she'd seen some interesting looking brassica and bassilicum, rather than up here where she was likely to get snakebit or buried in an avalanche.

"What's the problem?" She turned her face up at that familiar impatient voice. Yellow trouser legs led up to his golden backlit explosion of hair. She shaded her eyes.

"I just thought I'd take a moment to compose my will before I fall down the mountain and die."
