I'm Marcus Rowland, [livejournal.com profile] ffutures, and will be reccing on July 5th to 11th. I'm primarily a crossover fan / writer but I've tried to post something for everyone, with a preference for short to mid-length stories that emphasise character, rather than epic adventures. Apart from that I've tried to include a range of eras and genres - 1st, 9th and 10th Doctors, Sarah Jane Adventures, and Torchwood; tragedy, and comedy. There are a few crossovers, but most of the stories are unadulterated Who-fic.

Story: Old Bones
Author: Mhalachai
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 10848
Author's Summary: A man from Angela's past has come to set things right. (Torchwood/Bones crossover)
Characters/Pairings: Jack Harkness
Warnings: None
Recced because: I'm a sucker for good crossovers, and this is a beauty; it builds on some of the ideas in the Torchwood episode Small Worlds, and the major serial killer plot of Bones S3, to tell a haunting story of buried memories, possession, and insanity. It's been around on other sites for a couple of years, but only recently made it to Teaspoon - in my opinion it deserves to be better known in the Who fandom. I should mention that it does contain major spoilers for Bones S3, and that it helps (but isn't essential) to know the Bones characters and storyline.

Story: Jack and Sarah Jane, Down the Lane
Author: Mhalachai
Rating: All Ages
Author's summary: Jack Harkness really wasn't expecting to see Sarah Jane Smith behind door number one.
Characters/Pairings: Jack, Ianto, Gwen, Sarah Jane, Clyde, Luke, Maria
Warnings: none
Word Count: ~2,500 words

Recced because: This is sweet, fresh, and fun. Set after S2 of TW and S1 of SJA (so it's a bit scrambled by S4 of DW, but never mind that), Jack tries to recover a dangerous alien artifact and is rather surprised to meet Sarah Jane and her gang of teenagers, especially her teenage son, Luke. All the character voices are spot-on, with Ianto's internal observations on the whole thing especially hilarious, and the dialogue just sparkles. A very enjoyable piece.
