Oops I missed yesterday. Here is one to make up for it

Story: Impossible Things
Author: Casira
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 1848
Author's Summary: After the events of "Family of Blood", the Doctor dreams of lives, loves, and what he most needs.
Characters: Ten, Martha
Warnings: None

Recc'ed because: John Smith is no more, but the Doctor still has his dreams. It is angsty and heartbreaking like a lot of Tenth Doctor stories, but it doesn't sacrifice characterization to do it and it's not afraid to explore the side of the Doctor (especially Ten) that holds on to his companions more than a bit selfishly. It is also beautifully written and I love the metaphor of human hearts still trying to live in pairs.

Author: Casira/[livejournal.com profile] casirafics
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 5,451
Author's Summary: Kate Stowe's seen a lot of strange problems come up at the Genius Bar, but this one qualifies as the strangest she's seen yet... Presenting a bit of shameless insanity, featuring the Doctor, a race of aliens with quite inconvenient taste, and several unorthodox ways to break your iPod's warranty. (In other words: crackfic ahead!).
Characters/Pairings: Ten, OC
Warnings: None

Recced because: I usually stay far away from fanfic starring original characters unless I trust the author, and in this case, not only was I certain Casira wouldn't be writing a Mary Sue, I couldn't resist the title of the story. (In case you can't tell from my icon, I'm a longtime Mac user.)

This is a spectacular little story, featuring the Doctor at his troublemaking best, a smart and resourceful OC I'd be perfectly happy to watch as companion, and iPod usage guaranteed to breach the warranty. Shockingly, there's even a plot, but one with screwball-comedy timing and execution; the author calls this crack, but I'd call it genius, no pun intended.

Story: Translations

Author's Summary: There are some things the TARDIS doesn't translate, and some secrets of the Doctor's left unexplained. Rose is setting out to find out why.
Characters/Pairings: Ten/Rose
Warnings: None

Recced because: The language in this story is stunningly beautiful – it's delicate and poetic without ever becoming overwrought. While technically, it's a Ten/Rose romance, it's more about Rose trying to pry into one of the Doctor's secrets – his native language – not just to find out more about him, but also to give him someone to share it with ... even if things don't turn out quite as she expected.

Story: Drink to the Days
Author: Adriene
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 1,392
Charcters/Pairings: 10, implied Rose/10 if you want
Author's Summary: Yes, he has something very peculiarly her, a taste he can’t get out of his mouth, and he spends all his days trying to find something to compliment it.
Warnings: drinking

Recced because: If you haven't noticed by now, I'm a sucker for endings that leave you breathless. This one certainly packs a punch. The whole story, in fact, is buildup for the last few lines, but the wait is definitely worth it.

Story: Light, and the Stars Beyond
Author: Casira
Rating: Teen (?)
Word Count: 4,226
Characters/Pairings: 10/Remus
Author's Summary: Wherein the Doctor encounters another werewolf, and discovers there's far more to this young man -- and the world at large -- than he'd ever guessed. HP crossover, Ten/Remus.
Warnings: slash

Recced because: It's one of those pairings you really can't see working until you read it. Remus has been shunned, Ten is angsty and endlessly curious as usual, and together they comfort each other. It's odd, but the author really makes it work. Plus, the Doctor at Hogwarts is a brilliant mental image.
