Story: Puella Magi Amelia Magica
Author: Melengro
Rating: Teen
Word Count: ~600
Author's Summary: When the Doctor does not show up and a young Amy makes a new friend, somebody has a very rotten deal to offer her. Crossover with 'Puella Magi Madoka Magica'.
Characters/Pairings: Amy Pond, Eleventh Doctor, Kyuubey (crossover character)
Warnings: Implied spoilers for up to episode 9 of Puella Magi Madoka Magica.

Recced because: I won't lie. I dared Melengro to write this one. However, I regret NOTHING, because the fic he did write was absolutely perfect. I wasn't surprised, though. If there is one thing Melengro is good at, it's writing the most random of crossover fic in a way that perfectly honors both source materials.

What you need to know about Madoka Magica is this: all over the planet there exists magical girl warriors called "puella magi" who fight eldritch horrors known as "witches." They gain their power by making a contract with a cute little creature named Kyuubey who will grant them any wish they choose in exchange for fighting witches. There is, however, a catch to all this, one that Kyuubey never tells the girls.

In "Puella Magi Amelia Magica," a twelve-year-old Amelia wishes for the Raggedy Doctor to come back. But was that really such a good idea?

Let's just pretend I was paying attention to the time and posted this an hour ago, okay?

Story: Pond's Model
Author: Melengro
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 950
Author's summary: When Amy Pond tried to use art as therapy to help her cope with the monsters, it did not turn out as harmless as she had anticipated. References to and inspired by ‘Pickman’s Model’ by H.P. Lovecraft. Blink-and-you’ll-miss-it reference to Kara no Kyoukai by Nasu Kinoko (which many fans of Hinchcliffe-era or Moffat-penned Who might enjoy checking out).
Characters/Pairings: Eleventh Doctor, Amy Pond, Howard Phillip Lovecraft
Warnings: semi-RPF (ie there were no Famous Writer episodes this series, so Melengro wrote one for us)

Recced because: The closing shots of The Eleventh Hour were just begging for fic about Amy Pond as an artist. This one adresses that subject with a decidedly non-Euclidean flair, deftly combining both HP Lovecraft and Doctor Who in order to create a greater whole: a story that is alternately sweet and creepy.

Story: Le Temps Retrouvé
Author: Melengro
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 469
Author's Summary: Ian and Barbara, walking home.
Characters/Pairings: Barbara Wright, Ian Chesterton
Warnings: None, unless you don't know how Ian and Barbara leave the Doctor.

Recced because: The author describes the Ian/Barbara couple as "sickly-sweet", and they are, in a good and satisfying kind of way, the kind of couple that's impossible to break up cos they seem so perfect together. This is Ian/Barbara exploring that old trope "pretend we got married" and making it warm and believable and very very good.

Author's Summary: Cold hands, burning heads, boiling stomachs.
Characters/Pairings: Doctor/Romana, K-9
Warnings: Nuclear fallout stuffs, genocidal angst

Recced because: Because it should have been recced a long time ago. It's basically this beautiful, feverish mesh of alieness and Time Angst and Sehnsucht.
