Story: Never a Wolf
Author: jedi_penguin
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 2241
Author's Summary: She wouldn’t forgive him and she wouldn’t leave. The Doctor thinks this might be a good thing.
Characters/Pairings: The Doctor (7th), Ace
Warnings: Very mild swearing

Recced because: Earlier in the week, I gave you a rec for a story featuring Seven and another for one featuring Ace. In spite of this, I feel justified in returning to the same well, as it were, because both of those stories featured them in isolation and really, to get the full Seven experience imho, you have to have the two of them together. As fine as they are individually, together Seven and Ace are truly greater than the sum of their parts. This fic offers a slightly different slant on the ending of the televised Seven story The Curse of Fenric, in which Doctor and companion respond to the events of the denouement by having something of a frank exchange of views on the nature of their relationship. And what a relationship it is - "complex" does not begin to describe the ambiguous, slightly twisted Seven-Ace "thing", really, and this author captures that tremendously well, showing an extremely good and empathetic handle on the characters and their interactions that makes this Seven fan very happy indeed. And for all of the lies or omissions of the truth that may have passed between the pair of them, this is maybe one of the few Doctor-companion teams where you could imagine them actually having a discussion like this and coming to the conclusions they reach. I really enjoyed this fic, anyway, and keep going back to it. I hope all of you enjoy it as much as I did - and please let the author know how you feel about it.

Author's Summary: Missing Scene from “Caerdroia” – C’rizz needs a distraction from the Doctor’s distraction.
Characters/Pairings: Eight, C'rizz

Recced because: 'Caerdroia' is win, particularly the strange pairing of delightfully confused Tigger!Eight and C'rizz, who is quite serious most the time and has just discovered he's afraid of cows. The Doctor and C'rizz don't really talk that much in canon, which is a shame, because C'rizz really is about the most alien person the Doctor has ever travelled with, and so he should rightfully have a lot of questions. Isn't he curious? Well, he is now, and he's in the Garden of Curiosities, so it's a good place to talk about... mating! Although C'rizz doesn't see it that way. This short funny scene fits in perfectly with the tone of its parent audio and could probably slot neatly into its time line.

Story: In reason, how like a God
Author: jedi_penguin
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 373
Author's Summary: She upsets his reason. The Doctor should mind more than he does.
Characters/Pairings: Sixth Doctor, Charley
Warnings: None

Recced because: This is a lovely look into the Sixth Doctor's mind when it comes to Charley. All the reasons he doesn't trust her and all the reasons he likes her. It's short, but very sweet, and more than a bit sad.

Story: Truths That Matter

Author's Summary: Troilus ponders his strange bride.
Characters/Pairings: Troilus, Vicki
Warnings: Spoilers for the Myth Makers 
Recced because: There are 15 stories featuring on Vicki on Teaspoon, this is one of two that focus on Vicki, despite being from the viewpoint of Troilus. For those who do not know Vicki becomes "Cressida" in the Myth Makers, based on the story of Troilus and Cressida which has been told by Chaucer and Shakespeare.  It's a fantastic piece looking at how Vicki has to adapt, the lies she has to tell, in her new life. It's a brilliant short piece and well worth a read.

As the icon indicates this will be the Evelyn rec for the week. I have already rec'd jedi_penguin this week, but it was unavoidable. That is a subtle hint that people need to write more Big Finish related fics.

Story: A Delightful Species
Author: jedi_penguin
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 623
Author's Summary: She would have said that she was too old for emotional rollercoasters, but she's been known to be mistaken before.
Characters/Pairings: Evelyn/Sixth Doctor
Warnings: Spoilers for Assassins in the Limelight

Recced because: This is a wonderful look at Evelyn's thoughts during the last few scenes of the audio. It has the same narrative feel as the audio which makes it click all the more as a tag to Assassins in the Limelight.

This week I will be spreading the Big Finish love. I'm going to rec stories for a different Big Finish companion each day.

Story: Chameleon
Author: [livejournal.com profile] jedi_penguin
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 360
Author's Summary:
Good and Evil can’t hide from C’rizz. He takes them in and makes them his own. He knows Good because he knows Charley.
Characters/Pairings: C'rizz/Charley
Warnings: Just for C'rizz in general.

Recced because: It's says C'rizz/Charley and it is, but it's more than that. This is a wonderful character study of C'rizz as well. C'rizz is an often forgotten Companion and [livejournal.com profile] jedi_penguin shows the many facets of C'rizz in a few short words. It's brilliant.
