Rating: Adult
Word Count: 19,539
Author's Summary: The Tenth Doctor and Donna come to terms with what happened to him on Midnight.
Characters/Pairings: Tenth Doctor/Donna
Warnings: Sex

Recced because: Am I boring because I'm reccing the same author twice in a week? Probably. Do I care? Nope! Because Petunia Bowl is awesome enough to be recced everyday, I just wish she wrote enough stories for me to do that.
And this is one of my favorite romances ever, any fandom. It's short and sweet, but packs so much into every sentence, from the things the Doctor doesn't tell Donna, to Donna's slightly unwilling realization that maybe she does love the Doctor, after all, to one of the sweetest, hottest and most in-character sex scenes I've read in this fandom. Writing good sex scenes is an art, and far from every writer can do it. To do it well involving two characters who aren't together in canon, and do it in a believable way, that takes true skill, which Petunia Bowl has.

I've enjoyed this week, thanks for having me! Hopefully you've discovered some new, enjoyable stuff.

She’s not in love with him though, because that would be spectacularly stupid. )

Story: Rondo Veneziano
Author: Petunia Bowl
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 8,945
Author's Summary: The Doctor and Donna bump into a young man who bears a striking resemblance to someone we know.
Characters/Pairings: Tenth Doctor, Donna, Casanova
Warnings: None

Recced because: Oh, Donna Noble, you beautiful, brilliant thing. And let me tell you, few people write Miss Noble better than Petunia Bowl. Rondo Veneziano is a lovely, long one-shot where Donna and the Doctor attend a masked ball in Venice, the Doctor looks at maths book and Donna strikes up a conversation with a handsome stranger in a blue coat. A man who looks quite familiar, when she thinks about it...

This is not a ship-fic (even though I read it as one), but what's great about it is how perfectly Petunia Bowl captures Donna and the Doctor's relationship by using the eyes of a stranger. That the stranger happens to be Casanova is just icing on the cake.

“But really, though. You’re him. The Casanova? )
