Story: Doctor Merlin
Author: Emery Board
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 2284
Author's Summary: A Dresden Files/Doctor Who crossover posted with permission from Kesomon, for whom it was written.
Characters/Pairings: Ace McShane, Seven, Ainley!Master, Harry Dresden
Warnings: None

Recced because: The Doctor being Merlin is a running joke throughout the series I particularly enjoy, mostly because it’s a case where the Doctor is as ignorant of the rest of us (since, presumably, the time when he plays Merlin is in his personal timeline’s future) and so he’s stuck playing catch-up. Seven is my favorite instance of this trope as well because Seven casts himself as a puppet-master who always has all the pieces. This fic takes a play on the title Merlin and crosses Seven into the Dresden Files universe, where the main character (Harry Dresden) is the black sheep member of the White Council of Wizards, whose leader holds the title Merlin (the historical Merlin having been the creator and first leader of said council). Add an escaped Cheetah!Master who decides to prey upon the wrong jogger and you get this fic, where a confused Harry makes Seven tap-dance his way out of mucking up several timelines at once. Well worth a morning read.

Hi, I'm [livejournal.com profile] sue_denimme, first-time reccer. The fics I will be reccing all have three things in common: 1. They mostly feature Ten, though I did do my best to vary the other characters. 2. They either don't have a ship (unless you count *friend*ship), or the ship is not prominent. 3. They're short (the longest is under 6000 words).

So here goes:

Story: More Than a Name
Author: Emery_Board
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 643
Author's Summary: There have been secrets since the dawn of time. This is not one of them. There are secrets that would shatter the foundations of the universe. This is not that sort of secret. Perhaps the reason the Doctor refuses a name is simply because he has hundreds, and still none of them describe him properly.
Characters/Pairings: Ten (though it's really more about the overall character of the Doctor)
Warnings: None

Recced because: "Doctor who?" It's the show's longest-running gag. I'm actually about 95-99% certain that the question will never be resolved on screen. Why? Because after all these decades of teasing and dancing about the issue, what name could the writers possibly finally give him that wouldn't seem anticlimactic? And how could canon ever answer the question better than Emery_Board does in this little treasure of a fic? I particularly love the second half, and most especially the third-to-last paragraph. It gives me chills, happy chills. Really, read it. Just read it.

Story: Wolves of Time
Author: Emery Board
Rating: All
Author's summary: Rose and the Doctor find themselves on a small, completely hospitable planet with no unfortunate quirks or foibles --oh, except for the reigning dicatator and their policy of subjugation of the so-called "lesser sex". But apart from that, they're wonderful!
Characters/Pairings: Ace McShane, Rose Tyler, The Doctor (10th), The Doctor (7th)
Warnings: None

Recced Because:  It's a very light hearted and simple fic, which keeps to the characters perfectly. I think the main reason I like it, is because it could believably be a new series episode, so it isn't bogged down with the emotional side of whoverse that is often written about, especially in the case of the Doctor and Rose, and it is such a breath of fresh air in the case of Rose, who upon meeting Ace, doesn't act all whiney and protective of the Doctor.

I would recommend this fic to anyone who enjoys reading about the Doctor meeting passed selves and other companions meeting.
