Story: 45 for a Moment
Author: EllyF
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 645
Author's Summary: We move on, even when we don't want to.
Characters/Pairing:Eleventh Doctor, Donna Noble, Shaun Temple
Warnings: None

The Doctor doesn't deal with loss easily. We saw that in the aftermath of Doomsday, and again after Journey's End. By all accounts, you could say Ten went a bit off the rails after he lost Donna, and while it's never really talked about in explicit detail in canon, I imagine that what happened to her would be the sort of thing to haunt him, and that he would need to reassure himself that she's okay. This short little ficlet explores that idea, as Eleven sneaks a peek at Donna and her family on her 45th birthday. Hold on to your feels!

Author's Summary: The Doctor and Donna are both grieving, and they turn to each other for comfort..
Genre: Angst, Hurt/Comfort, Missing Scene, PWP
Characters/Pairings: Tenth Doctor/Donna

Recced because: Donna Noble.

I tried to rec as many Doctor/Donna fics as I could last time, since I feel it's the most underrated pairing and it deserves so much more love than it gets. Donna, if written right, has such potential in fics, both as a companion and as a romantic interest.

This is not a romance, per se, but a story of two people needing comfort and having only each other to turn to. Even though they've only just met, and know nothing of each other. Because sometimes, all we need is someone who understands. It touches on the incredible blow it must be to be betrayed by your fiancé at the altar, of Donna's sometimes fragile self-esteem, the Doctor's remoteness and his love for Rose and the loss of her. It also has a frank and insightful discussion about his feelings for Rose and best of all, it feels like it could have been canon, if Doctor Who was a show more aimed at adults.

Today, I offer you the Tenth Doctor with one of my favourite Companions, the inimitable Donna Noble.

Story: A Song of His Own
Author: EllyF ([livejournal.com profile] ellyfanfiction on LJ)
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 2668
Author's Summary: After their visit to the Oodsphere, Donna realises the Doctor needs to sing, too.
Characters/Pairings: Donna Noble, the Tenth Doctor
Warnings: None

Reced because: EllyF likes to write 10/Donna, and though that’s not a romantic pairing that appeals to me, I think she has a very good grasp on the personality of this particular Companion. Most fan writers get Donna’s bold, outspoken, irreverent attitude; not all of them get that she is also very smart and intuitive and is capable of being very sensitive and caring.

In this gen hurt/comfort fic, EllyF shows us those other aspects of Donna. She gives us a missing scene set immediately after The Planet of the Ood. After two centuries of slavery, the telepathic Ood have been freed from the device that prevented them from sharing their minds with each other. They celebrate with a telepathic song of joy. It’s a happy ending... except that Donna is now aware that she’s traveling with a telepath who is the last surviving member of his species. Being Donna, she not only sympathises with the Doctor, she resolves to do something for him.

Back to New Who, with a touch of humor.

Story: A Noble Companion
Author: EllyF
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 3613
Author's Summary: The Doctor acquires a new companion after he loses Donna.
Characters/Pairings: Donna Noble, Original Companion, The Doctor (10th), Wilfred Mott
Warnings: none.

Recced because: The Tenth Doctor is coerced into taking an OFC (Original Feline Companion) onto the TARDIS.  He’s depressed after Donna’s departure and doesn’t want a companion of any species, but Wilfred Mott hands him a kitten and won’t take ‘no’ for an answer.  What follows can be nicely summed up by the genres EllyF chose to label her story: angst, fluff, and hurt/comfort.

I suspect that EllyF has been owned by a cat at some point in her life.  She certainly has a good sense of how they think.  (She isn’t too shabby at writing Time Lords, either.)
