clocketpatch: A small, innocent-looking red alarm clock, stuck forever at 10 to 7. (Eleven's Face)
[personal profile] clocketpatch
Story: A Terrible Case of Love
Author: Leiascully
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 1354
Author's Summary: Strax is concerned for the Doctor and the lady with the giant head
Characters/Pairings: River Song, Strax, Eleven, Jenny, Madame Vastra
Warnings: N/A

Recced because:

Strax's Sontaran up-bringing has left him confused about many things. He thinks that River's hair is a part of her head and he doesn't understand why his allies keep pressing their faces together, but he does understand strength when he sees it – even if he doesn't completely understand its source. His misinterpretations are as hilarious as they are tragic, but his observations are still very keen and provide an intriguing insight on the Doctor's relationship with River.

Happy Independence Day to those of you who celebrate!  And a very happy Wednesday to those who don't.  I missed yesterday, so I've got two recs for you today.  Here's the first:

Story: see that picture, that was me
Author: leiascully
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 1982
Author's Summary: Leadworth is dead boring without Rory.
Characters/Pairings: Amy/Rory
Warnings: None
Recced because: This is a really sweet story about Amy and Rory and the ways they complement each other, about growing up and being different, and about being who you are even when that breaks some of the unspoken rules. Amy climbs trees, Rory knits hideous jumpers, and they don't seem to fit in anywhere but with each other. According to the author's note, the story was inspired by the Dar Williams song "When I Was a Boy," and it captures a similar sense of nostalgia really well.

Story: the joy of small days
Author leiascully
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 4,268
Author's Summary: "Come on, Time Lord. Everybody needs a day off now and again."
Characters/Pairings: Eleven/River
Warnings: None

Recced because: Even a Time Lord needs a quiet day spent with a loved one, doing nothing more adventurous than watching Casablanca on the couch. (Especially when the TARDIS agrees with River about how Eleven should spend his day, and locks him out.) I'm not always a fan of the type of story the author herself describes as "a ridiculous schmoopfest involving scones and snuggling," but Eleven and River feel so much themselves here that I fell for this story immediately – because sometimes, it's the small days that define the characters' relationship more than the big ones.

Hello again!  Here is your rec of the day:

Story: ceci n'est plus qu'un conte de fée
Author: leiascully
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 4085
Author's Summary: This is the story of two irresistible forces and an immovable universe.
Characters/Pairings: Eleven/River, Amy/Rory
Warnings: None

Recced because: This is a lovely follow-up to "The Wedding of River Song." The prose is lyrical, and it's a very gentle, graceful story. It doesn't hesitate to touch on sadness, but the emphasis is on redemption, family, and joy. The fairy-tale/mythology allusions work wonderfully.  Plus, bonus Donna. How can you not love it? 

Here's an excerpt for you:
