Author's Summary: When Sarah Jane contracts an alien virus, the Doctor is her only hope. Set after "Journey's End" and the first season of SJA.
Characters/Pairings: Tenth Doctor/Sarah Jane Smith

Recced because: Sarah Jane Smith is my favourite companion, and digitalfletch chose to honour her portrayer's memory by writing a story in which the Doctor saves her. Never mind the fact there's awesome Doctor/Sarah shippiness.


‘This’ was smooth and creamy and tasted of honey, overlain with a sharper, tangy flavor of something she couldn’t quite put her finger on. It slid soothingly down her throat like ice cream on a midsummer’s day. “Mmm, that’s lovely. What is it?”

He set the bottle down on a nearby table. “Just a little concoction of my own. Two parts safaran and allurium, one part Callyptus root, and a dash of the Elixir of Life thrown in for good measure.”

She had no idea what most of that was, but the last bit sounded familiar. “The Elixir of Life? You mean…the one from Karn?”

“Yep. Won’t make you immortal, I’m afraid, but it should speed up the healing process quite nicely.”

Sarah gaped at him. The Elixir of Life. The one that helped the Time Lords regenerate. Possibly one of the most treasured substances in the known universe, and one of which there was precious little supply. That he would share even a drop with a human such as herself — she felt immeasurably touched, honored…and very humbled.

“Doctor — thank you,” she said in a small voice.

He shook his head at her, his brown eyes warm with affection. “The world’s not ready to do without you just yet, Sarah Jane Smith.” He reached out and lightly brushed the hair back from her forehead. “And neither am I.”

My last rec, and thank you all for allowing me to share some of my favorite stories with you!

Story: Never Been Kissed

Author's Summary: Swapping stories with some mates leads Sarah to an unexpected discovery.
Characters/Pairings: Tenth Doctor, Sarah Jane Smith, Jack Harkness, Donna Noble, Martha Jones, Rose Tyler
Warnings: None

Recced because: It's always fun to get companions of the Doctor together, and what could be more convenient than when an episode does it for you? Written before "Journey's End" aired and now slightly AU, this story has Sarah, Jack, Donna, Martha and Rose all going off to a pub with the Doctor to celebrate their saving of the Earth. The companions are swapping stories of their travels when a little fact comes out, one small detail that sets Sarah apart -- she alone, out of all of them, has never been kissed by the Doctor. It's funny, it's fluffy, and it's well-written; sweet without being sappy.
