I'm going to be away from my computer tomorrow, so today you get two recs for the price of one! First, today's rec:

Story: Sometime Around Midnight
Author: cereal
Rating: Teen
Word Count:  2818
Author's Summary: It took two months. Two months of takeaway curries and crap television, of rumpled sheets and that spot on her neck that always makes her squirm. Two months of talking about Mickey's new girlfriend and Jackie's new tracksuit and decidedly not what a new, new, new Doctor meant to a new Rose.

Characters/Pairings: Rose/Ten Two
Warnings: None

Recced because: Despite all the grief and aggravation Rose and the Tenth Doctor (and their fans) have given me over the years, I still have a soft spot for stories about Rose and Handy trying to figure themselves out in Pete’s World. Here, they’ve been there for a while and not everything has worked out for the two of them. This Handy is achingly human and lost, and this story hurts, even through the happy ending.

Story: Firefighting
Author: gallifreyburning and cereal
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 2,800
Author's Summary: The aftermath of Rose and the Doctor's first week apart in Pete's universe.
Characters/Pairings: Ten (duplicate)/Rose
Warnings: None

Recced because: I originally saw this story on LiveJournal, but it began on Tumblr as "fic tennis," in which the two authors volleyed 200-word segments back and forth until they completed the story. Honestly, if I hadn't known that's how it was written, I'd have never been able to tell -- that's how seamlessly the authors' styles mesh -- but the Teaspoon version reveals who wrote what. There's a lot to love about this story: the breezy dialogue, the romantic-comedy feel of it, and an excellent sense of the chaos the Doctor would inevitably cause while trying to live a normal, domestic life.
