Author's Summary: "He first saw the Doctor when he was 12."
Characters/Pairings: Ninth Doctor, Clive
Warnings: None

Recced because: This was one of the first stories I came across on Teaspoon a few years ago, back when I was a lurker on the site. Watching 'Rose' as a newcomer to Who, I loved the character of Clive who was obsessed with the Doctor and knew all about him. This lovely little story tells us just how Clive came to be so obsessed. For me, it takes me back to that excitement I felt when 'Rose' first aired. Also has a nice little bit of 'timey-wimey' stuff. Sort of.

Story: Eighteen Seconds

Rating: All Ages
Author's summary: So now what?
Characters/Pairings: Ninth Doctor gen with a brief Rose appearance
Warnings: None

Recced because:
This was one of the first New Who stories I read, right after Rose aired, and nearly three years later I still love it. It's a short, funny piece that's a fantastic example of that favourite pasttime of Doctor Who fanfic writers: cramming 'missing adventures' between episodes, between scenes and, in this case, in the space between the Doctor dematerialising at the end of Rose and reappearing to point out that the TARDIS travels in time. So what was he up to in those 18 seconds? Quite a lot, as it happens. Oh, and it has a 'red bicycle when you were twelve' scene of the type beloved of Doctor/Rose writers - except it was written before The Doctor Dances. Timey-wimey stuff at work, probably...
