Story: Scenes from the Domestic Front

Rating: Teen
Word Count: 727
Author's Summary: The Doctor and Sarah are stranded in WWII era London.
Characters/Pairings: Fourth Doctor/Sarah Jane Smith
Warnings: None

Recced because: This is such a unique story in so many ways. It's from the LJ cliché-swap ficathon, where instead of the Tenth Doctor and Martha getting stuck in 1969, the Fourth Doctor and Sarah get stuck in London during WWII. But that's just the outer wrapping. The writing is both sparse and layered, and it doesn't just tell a story, it sets a mood, and immerses the reader in it. Every word seems carefully chosen and every nuance felt. Go give it a try, and let it capture you.

Author's summary: Sarah Jane compiles her field notes after her latest assignment—Mrs. Emma Peel.
Characters/Pairings: Sarah Jane Smith/Emma Peel (from The Avengers)
Warnings: none

Recced because: a) It's a drabble. A proper, precisely-100-words-no-more-no-less drabble. A really good drabble like this one is like a little jewel, perfectly crafted to get across one particular idea, somewhere between a haiku and a good joke and who knows what else. b) It's a crossover with The Avengers (the British telly ones, not the American comics ones). Sarah Jane Smith/Emma Peel is quite possibly too much awesome to be withstood for longer than 100 words. c) Despite the restrictions of the word count and the format used, both women's personalities come through wonderfully. [livejournal.com profile] ellisbelle always gives good SJS, and her Emma Peel is equally well captured.

(You could have read the fic in the time it took to read that, but never mind.)

Author's Summary: Sally Sparrow fancied she could tell a lot about a person by what movies they rented.
Characters/Pairings:  Donna Noble/Sally Sparrow
Warnings:  Sex, not super-graphic

Recced because:
  Enjoy some femslash this Friday!  Donna/Sally Sparrow is not a pairing I’d have come up with, but it works beautifully.  Donna, sometime after JE, becomes a customer at Sparrow and Nightingale, often talking loudly on her cell phone while shopping, and Sally develops a bit of a crush.  Both characters' voices are dead-on as they banter. The story has loads of great humor, but also a bit of wistful mystery as Sally senses that Donna is more than she seems.  It's a sweet (never saccharine) romantic comedy for those left behind.

try a taste! )

Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 2389
Charcters/Pairings: Clyde Langer, Luke Smith, Maria Jackson, Sarah Jane Smith
Author's Summary: Luke wants to tell his mum that he's more than just friends with Clyde--in just 10 easy steps!

recced because: There is a criminal lack of Sarah Jane Adventure fic so when one pops up that highlights the charming chemistry between the characters and the fun, wacky dynamic they share, it's worth sharing. Ellisbelle crafted an amusing, light fic that touches on slash, femslash but, most of all, on the bond between the characters that even a few years beyond the series, just sparkles. If you've not yet seen SJA, this fic is a nice introduction to the characters, if you have, this will make you laugh out loud.
