[personal profile] paranoidangel
Story: Stardust
Author: Rivrea
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 704
Author's Summary: An author and a soldier flirt in the middle of the London Blitz. AU now because it was written before "Torchwood" season 1 gave us some backstory on Captain Jack and before Big Finish produced the last audio with Charley.
Characters/Pairings: Charley Pollard, Jack Harkness
Warnings: None

Recced because: It's really interesting to look at what Charley might have done during the War, after she and the Doctor stopped travelling together. Jack being his typical self makes them a really fun pair to meet.

Author's summary: Five things that never happened to Mickey Smith and Ace McShane.
Characters/Pairings: Ace, Mickey (some Ace/Mickey)
Warnings: none
Word Count: 1000 words

Recced because: Five pitch-perfect little ways that Mickey and Ace could have (and should have) met; each is a gorgeous little slice of possibility. From a thirtyish woman in some retro punk outfit, who’s chain-smoking in the corner, to prison breaks and time-hoppers, to the idea of Ace joining the Ten, Rose, and Mickey TARDIS crew, to kissing in the Trevi fountain, the writing is lovely and intriguing, with terrific construction that plays with time in all the right ways, and is just delightful as a whole.

Author's summary: Rose walks into some bar on some planet and meets a girl called Fred.
Characters/Pairings: Rose Tyler/Romana II
Warnings: none
Word Count: ~1,300 words

Recced because: A wonderful little story, wherein Romana is disillusioned, Rose is drunk, and somehow they find a common ground. With some great lines for Romana (Sometimes, I suspect I never really knew him. Unless bohemian nutters always turn into ruthless utilitarians with a penchant for genocide), some interesting insights into what can make Rose tick underneath it all, and a very powerful ending (the "grapefruit moon" imagery has stuck with me over a long time), this really works.
