Warnings: None.

Recced because: This fic is ridicliously funny! Benny is bored and uses the Doctor's present to entertain herself. Wolsey does not appriciate this. If you want a good laugh, this is the fic for you!

Author's Summary: The crew encounter an ancient toroidal planetoid. A Jim M/Andy Lane style piece set between Mawdryn and Terminus.
Characters/Pairings: Fifth Doctor, Tegan, Nyssa, and Turlough
Warnings: none

Recced because: This story is unique on several fronts, none the least of which being its placement in canon. There are precious few fics which take place in the gap between "Mawdryn Undead" and "Terminus," and it is always interesting to see a take on how this TARDIS team would have worked, given more time. The result is much more fantastic and bizarre than the summary gives it credit for, with the crew taking very divergent paths. Each of them is given their own set of motivations, their own journey, but they all want the same thing: home, whatever that means for them. Brilliant world building, poetically trippy prose, and Nyssa goes parasailing in the first chapter. Just a lovely little gem.

Author's summary: Returning Jamie and Zoe to their own time lines is harder than it first seems...
Characters/Pairings: Zoe
Warnings: none

Recced because: It's about the awesomeness of Zoe. At the end of the Second Doctor era, she was supposed to have her memory wiped and be returned to her own timeline. Well, things don't quite work out the way the Time Lords wanted. Zoe keeps noticing little things about herself that aren't quite right, like the length of her fingernails and the new filling in her tooth. She soon figures out that she's lost two years of her life, and then the fun really begins. Even without knowing all the rules of the "game," she manages to outsmart the Time Lords. Seeing that it's clever, resourceful Zoe, I believed she could do it.
