Title: Nap Time
Author: LinworthNewt
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 1129
Author's Summary: "Naps are for the old, and I haven't been old since I was young."
Characters/Pairings: Eleven, Amy
Warnings: None

Recc'ed Because: A short vignette "missing scene" from very early in Eleven and Amy's timeline, after Victory of the Daleks. I like this because it is bittersweet, quirky and subtle and sad. The character voices in this story are perfect. Amy is so very young, just at the start of her adventures, and the Doctor is older than he appears.

Story: The Shadow of Joanna
Author: LinworthNewt
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 4082
Author's Summary: Between their departure from the Forest of Jaffa during the Crusades, and their arrival at the Space Museum on the planet Xeros, the TARDIS jumped a time track, and the travelers forgot what happened in the intervening time. Something lost, and something gained, passed between Ian and Barbara.
Characters/Pairings: Barbara, Ian, Vicki, the First Doctor, Princess Joanna; Ian/Barbara
Warnings: None given.

Recced because: This is darker than the events you saw on screen, and goes deeper. The true fate of the historical figure Princess Joanna is paralleled with Barbara's story, and events from canon are given real and very human consequences. Dovetailing into the serials The Romans, The Crusade and The Space Museum, this fic seems to turn the world 90 degrees, and let you see it in a new light. To quote the fic itself, history is not always kind to its heroes and heroines.


I hope this can be considered Monday's rec? I did mean to do a rec-a-day, but something I couldn't put off came up IRL.
