Davros: The man who abhors violence. Never carrying a gun. But this is the truth, Doctor. You take ordinary people and you fashion them into weapons. Behold your Children of Time transformed into murderers.

Story: Paradox
Author: Dave7
Rating: All Ages
Author's Summary: Spoilers for 'Last of the Time Lords.'
Characters/Pairings: Ten, Rose implied.
Warnings: None

It's Dark Doctor! - sorta.
Again, this fic reminds me of the personality characteristics we saw in The Waters of Mars. Specifically the quote "There's nobody left to tell him it's wrong."

This takes place after The Last Of The Time Lords. The Doctor is clearly damaged by what happened with The Master, and there is no one there, to quote Donna, to stop him.

In this, he uses the Masters technology to go and change something that happened in his past. He takes Rose from himself.

I think this shows what could have happened had Donna not shown up. The Doctor would have fallen into insanity a lot sooner then he did. Dave7 really does a good job showcasing the thought patterns that bring The Doctor to this point. You can see very vividly how he changes from the Timelord we all love, to someone who will bed the rules of time to his own advantages.

It's really scary, when you think about it. Just another perspective on The Doctors thoughts. There is a part two as well which is actually Ten/Rose, which you can find on Teaspoon.

Story: Last of the Time Lords
Author: dave7
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 500
Author's Summary: Ten/Rose, OC, No Spoilers
Characters/Pairings: Ten/Rose, OC's
Warnings: None

Recced because: This fic, in just 500 words, captures an entire AU (not handy!Doctor) lifetime of the Doctor and Rose.  Not only does it capture it, this fic describes their lives together in such lovely imagery that it is one I keep coming back to time and time again.

: Aftermath
Author: co-authored by  Dave7,  and  WMR
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 4046
Author’s Summary: On the worst day of her life, there's a lot to feel remorseful about. Most of all, that she killed him.
Characters/Pairing: Nine/Rose
Warnings: None

Recced because: When two very talented authors work together, it's hardly a surprise when the result is beautiful. Dave7 and WMR each have a gift for getting inside the heads and hearts of their characters, exploring their motivations. This story, set during and after the events of "Father's Day", never hits a wrong note as we journey with them through pain, uncertainty, misunderstandings, and hope.

Hi! I'm [livejournal.com profile] wendymr,or wmr on the Spoon, and I'm your second reccer for this week. Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] calapine  for giving me another week, and I'm delighted to be reccing alongside [livejournal.com profile] isiscaughey. I'll be reccing New Who, a mix of Ninth and Tenth Doctors and all companions, ship and genfic.

A short but powerful gen story to start my week:

Story: Haunted 
Author: [livejournal.com profile] dave7 
Rating: All Ages
Word count: 864
Author’s summary:  Ninth Doctor, Pre-series, for the Ninth Doctor Ficathon.
Characters/Pairings: Ninth Doctor
Warnings: None

Reason for recommendation:    The summary for this story really doesn’t provide us with much of a reason to read it, but trust me: this story needs to be read. [livejournal.com profile] dave7  was prompted with a haunted abbey, the ocean, new shoes, and what he does with these is truly wonderful. We have Nine, immediately post-Time War, immediately post-regeneration. From the very first line, I was struck with an image that brought me to a skidding halt:

The Doctor lands the TARDIS on the edge of a beach, somewhere, on a planet he isn’t sure exists any more.

And so it continues. In a very short piece, typical of this writer’s economy with words, we’re given a picture of a man who has no idea who or what he is any more, what kind of universe he’s in - or how much of the universe he’s known all his lives is even left. Read it. It’ll haunt you.

As always, if you enjoy a recced fic here, please leave some feedback for the author! :)
