Story: The New Year Honours List
Author: catelfemma
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 1,070
Author's Summary: At the honours ceremony, things aren't quite as they seem.
Characters/Pairings: Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart
Warnings:. none

Recced because: One of the reasons I love fanfic is that it takes the little throwaway pieces of information and turns them into pure gold. We know from The Poison Sky that the Brigadier had been knighted – this fic tells the story of his knighting ceremony, and demonstrates why the Brig is, and will always be, amazingly awesome.

And that’s my last rec for the week – I had a great time. Hope you found something to enjoy.

Story: 1967, the Chestertons and all that
Author: catelfemma
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 5287
Author's summary: 1967 was a lovely year for all sorts of reasons, and Captain Jack Harkness was pleasantly surprised to find two old friends of a Doctor he'd never known there as well.
Characters/Pairings: Jack Harkness/Ian Chesterton, background Barbara Wright/Ian Chesterton, Owen Harper, Ianto Jones, Toshiko Sato, "Algy"
Warnings: none that I can think of, really

Recced because: One of the things I love about this fandom is that you can pick the most random pairings--characters that never even meet onstage--and someone somewhere has written a fic about it (and chances are, it'll be good too.) In this case, the improbable pairing is Jack Harkness with Ian Chesterton and catelfemma makes it work. Of course, it probably helps that Ian and Barbara are swingers. They're married in the fic and although it's not the main pairing, what we see of their relationship is very sweet. The main pairing itself is equally endearing, with Ian's nervousness at being with a man for the first time being gently soothed by Jack. (It probably helps that despite technically being a Torchwood crossover, Jack's portrayal in the fic is more in line with his less emo Doctor Who characterization.) The build-up might be slow, but it's in no way boring.

Story: Another Day in UNIT
Author: catelfemma
Rating: Teen
Author's summary: One by one, the Brigadier's soldiers are being frozen.
Characters/Pairings: Benton/Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart, Harry Sullivan, Mike Yates
Warnings: none
Word Count: ~2,900 words

Recced because: Cute, clever, and funny, this is a great little slice of life for UNIT, with a bonus of some nicely handled inter-team slash. All the character voices are perfectly done, solving the mystery includes reading through archives, and Benton gets to save the day – and sneak in a kiss or two. This is just sheer good fun.
