Author's Summary:Ten/Rose. Rose doesn’t whisper, “Don’t,” as she’s been dying to ever since she first had any inkling that the Doctor was planning something that she wasn’t going to like. It’s not that it doesn’t need saying. There’s just no point.

Warnings: Explicit violence
Recced because: THIS FIC. Is all kinds of gorgeous. The descriptions and the bag and...just read it.

Amy and Rory's relationship - with each other and with the Doctor - is the focus of the TV show at the moment. Everything seems to revolve around how they live (or don't) when the Doctor isn't around. But curiously, we very rarely actually see them without the Time Lord. Here's what they say and do when the TARDIS disappears.

Story: All Paths Leading Forward
Author: Queen of the Castle
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 2463
Author's Summary: As Amy watched the TARDIS disappear, Rory thought that some part of her went with it.
Characters: Amy Pond, River Song, Rory Williams
Warnings: None

Recced because: This is a lovely little piece that takes familiar scenes from the series - often shortly after the TARDIS has left Amy and Rory behind - and spins off in new directions, placing the focus wholly on the companions. We get to see how the Ponds react to their life on Earth, without the Doctor, and get some fascinating insights into how they view a life outside of time and space.

Story: Catch Me A Catch
Author: Queen of the Castle
Rating: All Ages

Author's Summary: Sarah Jane looked at Rose and saw herself back before the Doctor had broken her heart. And even though Sarah Jane had finally seen what the Doctor looked like when he was in love – a look Sarah Jane now accepted would never be directed at her – she wondered whether it was going to be enough.
Characters/Pairings: Rose Tyler, Sarah Jane Smith, Mickey Smith, Tenth Doctor; minor Rose/Ten, Rose/Sarah Jane, (one-sided) Sarah Jane/Ten

Recced because: "But...you could come with us." The line that prompted a million AUs! Well, not exactly - but it should have, because what would have been better than Sarah Jane back in the TARDIS? This take on it specifically explores Rose and Sarah Jane's relationship with the two of them as companions (a dynamic further complicated by the Doctor being stubborn and oblivious). The friction between Rose and Sarah is wonderful; even as they become close - and closer! - Sarah struggles to adapt to this new generation of the TARDIS crew, and to define the limits of both old and new relationships.

Author's Summary: It’s not quite a coincidence when the Doctor runs into Jack in a time and place where he shouldn’t be. The Doctor only wishes it was.
Characters/Pairings: Jack Harkness, Ten
Warnings: None

Recced because: Two reasons!! =) Either one of these would make this interesting, memorable fic deserving of a rec.

1) Remember in Torchwood Children of Earth Day 5, how Gwen says something about how she thinks the Doctor didn't come because he's ashamed of humans? This is a very different take on his reason for not coming. I haven't seen this explanation before - it's fascinating!

2) This fic is truly a touching meta on the push-pull nature of Ten and Jack's friendship, which seems destined to never have the same closeness as Nine and Jack's friendship back in the trusting, innocent days of s1.
