Story: Strain
Author: golden orange
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 1312
Author's Summary: "Peri is infected with the dreaded alien sex pollen. This makes things between her and the Doctor uncomfortable. Alright, MORE uncomfortable."
Characters/Pairings: Sixth Doctor/Peri
Warnings: None

Recced because: What was it about Six and Peri? The poor girl could never do anything right by him, especially when she actually was right. But when the bickering's good, it's like some kind of proto-Jerry Springer situation - utterly addictive. You can't leave, let alone look away; you must see this argument through to the end. Someone pass me the popcorn! Let's take bets on who'll throw the first chair!

This fic captures Six and Peri exquisitely - they're at the top of their already very fine bickering form, and placed in a trope-tastic situation from which thousands of characters before them haven't managed to escape the inevitable. And yet... Well, I don't want to ruin the surprise - go read it for yourself!


“This is all your fault,” Peri Brown snapped waspishly. A close observer would note that she appeared remarkably fidgety, and appeared to be crossing and uncrossing her legs with remarkable frequency. She seemed to have some difficulty in remaining settled in her seat. She was brushing at the skin of her arm, as if she had an itch, but the same close observer would see that her hand appeared to be stroking her skin rather than scratching it.

The Doctor spun around from the TARDIS console in a flurry of brightly coloured coat tails and moral outrage. “My fault?!” he repeated incredulously. “And who was it, I wonder, who warned you to stay away from those flower beds in the first place? It’s not my fault that you allowed your otherwise laudable botanical curiosity to overrule your good senses and reject my as-it-turns-out remarkably sound advice!”

“Yeah, you warned me -- right before you pushed me into them!”

Story: Smash It (Zombies and Time Lords Remix)
Author: golden orange
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 2,207
Author's Summary: The scary thing is, an invasion of zombies and a Time Lord lodger isn't even the weirdest thing Tim and Daisy have seen this week. Crossover with Spaced.
Characters/Pairings: Eleven, Tim, Daisy, Brian, Mike
Warnings: None

Recced because: It's "The Lodger" crossed with Spaced by way of Shaun of the Dead, which in and of itself should be enough to convince you to read it. Frankly, I'm disappointed the BBC hasn't swept in to film this yet, but until that happens, we can always re-read this story and imagine how wonderful it would be to watch Eleven and the Spaced crew fighting off a pack of undead with one of the Doctor's wacky contraptions and Tim and Mike's homemade anti-zombie preparation kit.

Story: Ten Moments
Author: golden orange
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 6859
Characters: Doctors 1-10, various companions
Author's Summary: Ten Doctors, ten moments

Recced because: We all have our Favorite Corners of Who Fandom. I mean, how could we not? The show's been around for forty-odd years, with a revolving door of companions, monsters and villains, One School-Two School/ Old School-New School, and ten different actors in the star role-- the main cast alone could field two soccer teams and a rowdy bar crowd to cheer them on and get into brawls. At the same time, I think we really do Love Them All, even if we don't know it yet. And once in a while an author comes along and reminds us of that. I love the diversity and creativity of these moments, how the author not only gets the characters and voices of every era down pat, but also seems to know exactly what kind of moment each Doctor needs-- in style and substance-- in order to shine. For those familiar with all the eras, it's ten gems in a row. And for those who still don't know that they really do love them all, it's kind of like a surprise greeting card sent from a distant relative, that spurs the thought-- we should really keep in touch.

Teensy snippet (I'll leave you all to guess to whose moment it belongs) )
