Ladies and gentlemen, allow me to present the second part of today's double feature:

Story: Savor Your Victories
Author: Magnus Greel
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 626
Author's Summary: The Third Doctor knows how to live... good food, good wine, a main course with special meaning... so just why is Jo freaking out?
Characters/Pairings: The Doctor (3rd), Jo Grant
Warnings: None

Recced because: I can't really say too much about this short piece without giving the game away, other than to say that it's very well written, extremely funny (to me, at any rate) and may well leave you with the same feeling of nausea as poor Jo seems to be experiencing at the story's conclusion. I would probably class this as crack fic, if only because I would prefer to think that Three would not "really" do anything like this, but sometimes with Three it's a bit hard to be sure. So read this, and see how long it takes you to work out what's really going on and why Jo reacts in the way she does. I'd also like to urge you to read some of this author's other work on the Teaspoon - Magnus Greel is a Who fan of the old school and has a nicely irreverant, surrealist take on the show and its meandering course over the years, but can also be very sincere and thoughtful when required. I don't think you'll regret taking the time to familiarise yourselves with some of his other stories after this one.

Hello! I'm [personal profile] dbskyler, and I'll be your reccer for the week. I'll be bringing you a mix of recs -- New Who and Classic, gen and shippy, funny and fluffy and dark. I hope you find in these recs at least one new story you enjoy.

Story: The Utterly Non-Committal, Generic, All-Purpose Eleventh Doctor Story
Author: Magnus Greel
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 474
Author's Summary: Some things of some sort happen to a Doctor we don't know yet, and Unspecified Companion. They suffer greatly at the hands of some old enemy or historical figure or maybe a vacuum cleaner with a faulty wire causing it to blow up and emperil the universe. It's hard to say.
Characters/Pairings: Eleventh Doctor, Unspecified Companion
Warnings: None

Recced because: As the author says in the author's notes, "Writing for a Doctor we know nothing about yet poses certain difficulties." This story unabashedly plays it safe by simultaneously including every possible alternative in a brief but hilarious look at a future Eleventh Doctor adventure. What makes this fic so brilliant, though, is that in among the extremely funny "let's-cover-all-the-possibilities" jokes are some very specific predictions for the Doctor Who tropes we all know and love, and will definitely be seeing in the future!

here, have a taste )
