Author's Summary: Nyssa and Tegan in a quiet moment on the Saturnian moon Tethys.
Characters/Pairings: Nyssa, Tegan Jovanka
Warnings: None.

Recced because: It’s a beautiful, brief vignette that quietly says a lot in a few words, capturing a sense of both science and wonder, of the friendship between Nyssa and Tegan – and a foreshadowing of what will cause them to give up the ability to explore space and time like this.

Author's Summary: Two Seven/Ace drabbles written for the Livejournal DW100 comm
Characters/Pairings: Seventh Doctor, Ace McShane
Warnings: None

Recced because: A pair of drabbles that perfectly capture Seven and Ace and their relationship in a few, well-chosen words – one the darker side, the other the lighter. Or both together, perhaps. And Seven and Ace being awesome as ever, of course, because they are.

Author's Summary: Six interlinked ficlets for the LJ Lifeonmartha drabbles challenge inspired by the colours of the rainbow (excluding indigo!)
Characters/Pairings: Tenth Doctor, Martha Jones, The TARDIS
Warnings: None

Recced because: I adore padawanpooh's writing, and in this series of ficlets, she portrays a Ten and Martha who are strong and loving and good for each other, even before they take their relationship to the next stage.

Shouting directions to her hastily assembled medic team Martha, already covered in bright blood, was trying to hopelessly restart yet another heart when a cool hand fell on her shoulder.

It was the Doctor: her Doctor.

Martha closed her eyes, suddenly relaxing under his soothing touch, and she let her tears finally fall.

"Oh Martha," he said, voice soft and full of sadness, "sometimes we don't win: sometimes we have to let go. Sometimes, we have to let people find their own destiny."

Author's Summary: To save her Doctor's future, Rose has to go back in time and meet all previous incarnations of the Timelord. There'll be danger, humour, romance and adventure!
Characters/Pairings: Rose/Doctor, All 10 Doctors
Warnings: N/A

Recced because: This is the first story in a series, but it's also my favourite. This is a Rose story where we see her strength and courage and conviction, and her stubborn drive to save the Doctor and the universe as she travels through the Doctor's life on her own. Yet this is also a Rose/Doctor story, where we see Rose meet her feelings head on where the Ninth and Tenth Doctors are concerned. I especially like this story because each meeting with each incarnation is unique yet still so similar - in almost every instance they end up running for their lives or being in mortal peril in some way. It's really great fun to read, and I think the author is completely right when they said 'There'll be danger, humour, romance and adventure!'.
