Story: The Man with No Name
Author: Frostfyre
Rating: Teen
Word Count:
Author's Summary: He hadn't really counted on getting into a pub brawl over the color of his coat on some speck of a planet, or signing up with a crew of petty criminals.  Still, the Doctor had always wondered what really happened to those Lost Colonists from Earth.
Characters/Pairings: Tenth Doctor, Other characters
Warnings: Swearing, violence

Recced because: I know . . . I’ve already recommended a story by Frostfyre this week.  In my own defense I didn’t know that they were by the same author when I was putting my list together.  Once I realized, I couldn’t decide which one to drop.  Is it my fault Frostfyre is good?

I know this is a long story, but I don’t recommend it lightly.  I had heard of the Joss Whedon series “Firefly”, but had never seen it, or the related movie “Serenity.”  I decided to give this crossover fic a try, and was hooked immediately.  Hooked as in I didn’t really accomplish much else until I finished reading it, and I tell everyone I know that they should read it.  I have seen the movie now, and I think that the author did a very good job of portraying all the characters.  It is also an interesting portrait of the Doctor dealing with the aftermath of “Doomsday.”  It is long, but worth the ride.  It’s the best crossover fic I have ever read. Strike that; it is some of the best fiction I have read.  Now I need to buy the box set of “Firefly.”

Story: A Time for Peace

Rating: All ages
Word Count:
Author's Summary: There is a time for everything, and a season to all things under heaven.  In the light of a funeral pyre, the Doctor decides the time is come for him to make peace with some ghosts of the past.

Characters/Pairings: Tenth Doctor, Barbara Wright, Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart, Ace McShane, Tegan Jovanka
Warnings: None

Recced because: Even though this is officially a Tenth Doctor story, fans of the First, Third, Fifth and Seventh Doctors may enjoy it more.  After his solitary memorial for the Master, the Doctor decides to visit some old friends, for closure.  Each chapter is a stand-alone story, and they are all good.  My personal favorite is The Wake, in which the Doctor visits an old friend who has his own memories of the Master.  No one can comfort a battle-weary Doctor better than an old soldier.  It is full of rich, and often delightful, details.
