Story: Pizza and Planets
Author: Eledhwen
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 7365
Author's Summary: When the Doctor arrives in Cardiff, horizons are expanded. Spoilers for DW S4 and TW S2, plus speculative casting spoilers for TW S3.
Characters/Pairings: Gwen Cooper, Ianto Jones, Jack Harkness, Martha Jones, Mickey Smith, The Tenth Doctor
Warnings: none

Recced because: I wish we had seen more interaction between Torchwood 3 and the Doctor.  In this (mostly) lighthearted story, the Tenth Doctor drops by the Cardiff Hub after the events of “Journey’s End”.  There are moments of sadness, as when the Doctor has to explain what happened to Rose and Donna, but also of humor and affection.

Story: Series 4 in Drabbles
Author: Eledhwen/[livejournal.com profile] torn_eledhwen
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 1,438
Author's Summary: 14 episodes. 100 words per episode.
Characters/Pairings: Ten, Donna
Warnings: None

Recced because: This is part of [livejournal.com profile] torn_eledhwen's ongoing recap of each series in drabble form, and though her three previous entries are also very good, this one is my favorite. All but one of the drabbles are told from Donna's point of view, exploring her emotions during and after each episode in compact but lyrical form. The "Journey's End" drabble is especially poignant, describing Donna's exhilaration at discovering her new power as the Doctor-Donna, and concluding with a single, powerful sentence that reminds you how tragic Donna's ending really was.

Story: The Doctor and the Daffodils.
Author: Eledhwen.
Rating: All Ages.
Word Count: 2163
Author's Summary: He froze, staring in disbelief at the large blue box dominating a corner of the room. It was still and quiet, but it sang to him.
Characters/Pairings: Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart, Jo Grant, Sergeant Benton, The Doctor (3rd), UNIT, Jack Harkness
Warnings: None.

Recced because: I absolutely love this story because it has Jack meeting the Doctor, when the Doctor was with UNIT. It is kind of sweet too. Jack after the Game Station, and the Doctor prior to the Time War, giving each other the once over. And there are daffodils involved.
