Hello Calufrax! It’s been three years since I’ve recced here, so I thought it was time for another go-round.

Story: Places of Safety
Author: Paranoid Seat
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 2103
Author’s Summary: Erimem finds the most joy inside the TARDIS.
Characters/Pairings: Peri/Erimem
Warnings: none

Recced because: This story has such a great feel to it. The prompts for this story were “secret spaces” and “touch is the revolution”, and exploring these concepts through Erimem and her relationship with Peri is perfect. I’ve only heard two Erimem stories but her voice here sounds just right, and I adored this Peri. A great character study for an underexplored pairing.

Story: Predestination Parenting
Author: Paranoid Seat
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 4043
Author's Summary: “Sorry, I don’t take passengers who can’t tie their own shoelaces. Running’s an important part of the job description.”
Characters/Pairings: Ian/Barbara. Donna Noble, Martha Jones, Other Character(s), The Doctor (10th)
Warnings: None

Recced because: The Doctor and Donna looking after a baby when neither of them quite know what to do is funny. It's the sort of story made more interesting by time travel, once we learn where the baby's come from. It's a good idea that I can see being canon.

Story: Time Lords in Floppy Hats
Author: Paranoid Seat
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 1643
Author's Summary: The Doctor has escaped the justice of the Time Lords and hidden away on Earth. Two agents from the Celestial Intervention Agency are sent to retrieve him, but it's not all fun and games searching for a renegade on an alien planet. 'Unbound: Exile' audio, missing scenes.
Characters/Pairings: Other Character(s) (CIA Agents from Exile).
Warnings: None.

Recced because: I still haven't listened to Exile though I've been meaning to ever since I read this. So I can say for sure that you don't need to know the audio to love this story. The adventures of the two Time Lords as they try to deal with Earth culture and track down the Doctor are funny and meta and wonderful.

Story: The Doctor and Clyde Go Adventuring (or, Don't Drink the Water)
Author: Paranoid Seat
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 1641
Author's Summary: Clyde doesn't quite get the outer space adventure he hoped for.
Characters/Pairings: Clyde Langer, The Doctor (10th)
Warnings: None.

Recced because: The universe is an unfair place, because it has denied us Clyde travelling in the TARDIS. Luckily we have fanfic to correct that mistake. This story is nothing but a ball of laughs in which Clyde gets to meet aliens, security robots, and, as always when the Doctor is around, do a bit of running. It may not be quite the adventure Clyde had hoped for, but it definitely made me laugh out loud.

Story: Christmas in George Square
Author: Paranoid Seat
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 947
Author's Summary: During a seemingly quiet visit to Scotland, Peri takes the opportunity to introduce Erimem to a new experience.
Characters/Pairings: Peri/Erimem, Fifth Doctor.
Warnings: None.

Recced because: Since there is at least 12 inches of snow outside, I thought this would be quite appropriate. There are very few Peri/Erimem fics out there, and this is one of the best. It is a wonderful fluffy story where Peri introduces Erimem to certain Christmas traditions. Its a well written, femslash story which makes casual references to the audio series. The characterisation of Peri and Erimem is spot on. It leaves you feeling warm and fuzzy inside!

Story: How Very 1920s

Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 3,138
Author's Summary: The Doctor dances with an old friend, while Charley dances with a new one.
Characters/Pairings: Two/Jamie, Eight/Jamie, Charley/Zoe
Warnings: None

Recced because: This is a delightfully sweet little story in which Eight, Charley, Two, Jamie, and Zoe all end up at a formal dance, and Zoe decides to play matchmaker for Two and Jamie as well as herself. It's a simple and well-trod premise, perfectly executed here with sparkling dialogue and those little touches that make each character seem fully realized. Be sure to follow the link at the end to the recently posted (and more adult) epilogue, which includes Eight/Charley/Zoe and is every bit as wonderful.

Author's Summary: Evelyn finds some unexpected company.
Characters/Pairings: Evelyn Smythe, Wilfred Mott, Sixth Doctor
Warnings: None

Recced because: This story makes me SO happy. I'm a sucker for old skool meeting new skool and Wilf and Evelyn have beautiful chemistry. A gorgeous idea beautifully realized.

Story: A Time for Change
Author: Paranoid Seat
Rating:All ages
Word Count: 2031
Author's Summary: One of the greatest art galleries in the galaxy, a Time Lord who maintains it by routinely breaking the Laws of Time, a woman who was once Pharaoh, and a job offer.
Characters/Pairings: Erimem, Braxiatel
Warnings: Since this has been Jossed since it was first written.
Recced because: This is a lovely What If? fic for what could've happened to Erimem after leaving the Doctor and Peri. It feels spot on as to how Erimem would have reacted to the situation. Braxiatel is spot on (from the little I've heard of him) and overall it's a very enjoyable fic.

This week has been incredibly fun for me, so I figured I should end it with a rec for a story that is made of fun.

Story: Memories and Mesmers
Author: Paranoid Seat
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 7507
Author's Summary: She's a sceptical scientist missing some memories. She's a street-smart Time Lady who's rather good at cards. They fight... pirates.
Characters/Pairings: Romana II/Liz Shaw
Warnings: nope.

Recced because: I originally read this story on LJ and was so psyched when I saw that the author had posted it on teaspoon. Like I said, this piece is just straight up fun. I never would have considered Romana/Liz, but [ profile] purple_bug makes it work brilliantly. The voices are spot-on, and the joy is absolutely infectious. It's a raucous good time and it's fabulous how much Romana and Liz clearly enjoy both each other and the adventures they get into. Reading this the first time had me grinning from ear to ear and it just gets better with each re-visit.

Story: Dating in the Workplace
Author: Paranoid Seat
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 2471
Author's Summary: If anyone had asked the Doctor whether he begrudged his companions their interpersonal relationships, he would’ve denied it strenuously, with much hand-waving and/or babbling. Because it was true! For the most part. Crackfic, plain and simple. Have your brain-bleach on standby. Do not attempt to eat or drink while reading unless you have a valid warantee on your monitor/keyboard.
Characters/Pairings: Ian/Barbara, Ben/Polly, Two/Jamie, Brigadier/Benton, Tegan/Nyssa, Peri/Erimem, Ace/Hex, Five/Turlough, Jack Harkness.
Warnings: Crack

Recced because: Sometimes you want to read long plotty gen, sometimes you want to read some character driven angst and sometimes what you really want to read is some brain bendingly hilarious crack!fic.

This fic has something for everyone, and by that I mean that whoever you ship they probably get a mention in there somewhere. It's very funny and never fails to cheer me up any time I read it.

Plus who doesn't love a fic that contains the line 'Captain Jack Harkness, at your service. Ah... I’ll find my pants, shall I?'
