In celebration of the upcoming S6 finale, most of my fics are going to have an Eleventh Doctor slant to them -- I'd like to highlight some of the great work that's being done with Eleventy & Co.!

Story: Control
Author: Musedepandora
Rating: PG
Word Count: 3830
Author's Summary: There seemed to be no way out. There seemed to be no other option. Yet, the Doctor had to believe he always had a choice. So River gave him one.
Characters/Pairings: Eleven/River; Amy/Rory

Recced because: This is one of my go-to fics (why yes, there's a copy on my kindle). It's clever - sharp-as-a-tack clever. Like the very best of Doctor Who (professional or amateur) it careens wildly between hilarity, edge-of-your-seat action, pathos, and triumph.

Hello all. *waves* I’m [livejournal.com profile] elisi (same name everywhere), and I’m going to be your reccer for this week. I’ve tried my best to assemble a varied list of fics that have made an impression on me one way or another (not easy to narrow down of course), and I think there should be something for everyone. Eleven does pop up a fair few times, but in such completely different contexts that I hope no one will mind.

I’m going to start off with my ‘If you read nothing else, read this!’ story:

Story: Timeless Dreams
Author: musedepandora
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 5416
Author's Summary: "Every story is his story." A retelling of the Doctor and River Song's romance with magic and iPads. Written for an AU challenge.
Characters/Pairings: Amy Pond, River Song, Rory Williams, The Doctor (11th), The TARDIS
Warnings: None
Recced because: This is one of the best things I have ever read. Anywhere. At all. Musedepandora ([livejournal.com profile] cinderbella333 on LJ), is without a doubt one of the most talented writers I have ever had the fortune to come across, and what she has done in this story is sheer magic. It’s not your average AU – or rather, there is what could be termed an ‘average’ AU, but it is combined with another AU so mythical and beautiful that my words can’t do it justice. And the way these two complimentary stories entwine – as well as the way they call back to the show itself – is so masterly done that I am rendered mostly speechless. Sorry if I'm vague, but it is not easy to put across how different and lyrical this story is without quoting the whole thing.

It's almost time for the S6 premiere! Here's the perfect fic to read while you're counting down the hours:

Story: Make Believe
Author: musedepandora
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 3269
Author's Summary: It didn't end in The Library. For either of them. (Eleven/River, Amy. Spoilers through Pandorica)
Characters/Pairings: Eleventh Doctor/River Song, Amy Pond
Warnings: None

Recced because: It's a simple but brilliant premise: the Doctor sometimes takes the TARDIS back to orbit The Library so he can have conversations with the River he left there in the computer. The fic is a truly fascinating character study of the Doctor and River, and their very complex relationship with each other. River's status as a dead hologram is not shied away from, nor is the Doctor's fundamental discomfort around her -- and yet it completely works. The characterization is amazing, and the execution is perfect.
