Author's Summary: When one sense fades, the others are said to sharpen. But will that be enough as the Doctor and Rose face a distressing situation?
Characters/Pairings: Tenth Doctor,Rose
Warnings: None

Recced because: Seriously, how come no one has recced this before? Several of Darcie's fics have been recced, but this is the best, in my humble opinion. It's pretty well-known but I don't want anyone to miss this gem.

Rose and the Doctor get in trouble in a jungle when the Doctor is injured and temporarily loses his sight. It's up to Rose to get them to safety, and the Doctor is too focused on himself to pay attention to her...

An absolute must-read. Go go go.

Author's Summary: The Doctor and Rose hunt for an alien mineral that doesn't interact well with humans. As their search progresses, they find out just how dangerous the effects are.
Characters/Pairing: Ten/Rose, OCs
Warnings: This story's really intense. There's a fair bit of violence and a load of suspense.

Recced because: Darcie's one of the best plotters out there. In this story, the Doctor and Rose are chasing down a bit of an element that can cause psychosis in humans. Then Rose gets kidnapped by a man with a reputation for violence--a man who seems to be affected by the mineral. Worse, Rose is exposed to it and has to work her way free before succumbing to madness herself. This story is packed full of amazing original characters and had me on edge all the way to the end. If you're looking for a longer story that's got a roaring good plot, read this one. Then go read Darcie's other stories.

Eee! My turn to rec! I'll have to get in a few before I leave for Oregon, so here's the first:

Story: Used to Be Fantastic

Author's Summary: The Doctor struggles to help prevent a wide-spread tragedy, but to do so he may have to give up on Rose...
Characters/Pairing: Ten/Rose, OCs
Warnings: None

Recced because: First of all, Darcie's not getting nearly enough love around here. All her stories are fantastic, especially the longer, plotty ones. This is a prime example. The plot, equal parts political intrigue, ecological disaster and personal struggle (Rose is ill, possibly dying while the Doctor's coerced into helping a totalitarian government), rips right along while the author misses nary a beat with the characters. This feels like an episode of DW in every way. In spite of being sidelined by her illness, Rose is hardly a helpless victim; she's very proactive until she literally can't stand up. As for the Doctor, his solution is absolutely ingenious. After reading this one, check out "Royal Blood," which I very nearly recced instead. Don't forget to review!
