I apologize for the lack of post the last two days, I've been on the road and not connected to the internet. On Monday I'm going to France and I'm not sure how much internet access I'll have there, but I'll try to post as often as I can!

Without further ado, I give you today's rec:

Story: Petals
Author: Kate Andrews
Rating: Adult
Warnings: Explicit sex, mild drug use
Word Count: 5570
Author's Summary: There was, as it turned out, a handful of only slightly bruised rose petals hiding down the front of her knickers.
Genre: Het
Characters/Pairings: Tenth Doctor/Rose,

Recced because:
Continuing the sex theme, I give you my absolute favorite sex fic, my go-to-fic, as it were.. It's a wonderful one-shot set in Amsterdam, and features in the author's words "explicit, slightly kinky sex" which means the Doctor and Rose shag in public on one of Amsterdam's many bridges. Guess what I was thinking about when I was in Amsterdam in April!

Petals is a bit like those photographs that are so sharp and detailed that they seem almost otherwordly. I'd call it magical realism except there's nothing remotely magical about it, but somehow it feels almost like a dream.

Kate Andrews has a very plain, no-nonsense writing style, she describes everything inexquisite detail but lets the reader draw his or her own conclusions on the feelings and thoughts of the characters' actions. A true masterpiece in the art of "show, don't tell."

Go read and give her some love.

Story: Diverticulum
Author: Kate Andrews
Rating: I think it used to be "R," because it doesn't have one now. Adult, to be on the safe side?
Word Count: 1675
Author's Summary: Saying it like that felt so much better than saying 'pushed her guts back inside.'
Characters/Pairings: Ten and Rose -- does a bit of tension make it Ten/Rose?
Warnings: Medical squickiness.

Recced because: This is an odd little fic, rated the way it is not for sex or overt violence but because... well, to quote the story, "Three days ago, with her very own gut, [Rose] learned what it felt like when the Doctor repaired your serous membrane and restored the integrity of your peritoneal cavity." They manage to banter about it afterward, almost. I like the shifting balance of funny and serious, the awkwardness of the not-quite-spelled-out emotions, and the (mostly) sweet ending that doesn't quite go where you think it might.
