Story: Loose Sand
Author: schildkroet
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 2687
Author's Summary: Torchwood is facing a problem and Jack doesn't want to call the Doctor for help. Martha does so anyway.
Characters/Pairings: Tenth Doctor, Jack Harkness, Martha Jones, Sarah Jane Smith, Mickey Smith, Gwen Cooper, Ianto Jones
Warnings: None

Recced because: This fic is like the best of Twilight Zone in the way it quietly unfolds, starting with a mystery -- why doesn't Jack want to call on the Doctor for help? -- and then turning on a simple, horrifying reveal. The story was written back in 2008, so it's AU now, but perhaps that just means this happened in an alternate timeline (something else both Doctor Who and Twilight Zone have in common).

Author's Summary: Gwen is pregnant, and this time it's not an alien egg. It's not entirely natural either.
Characters/Pairings: Gwen Cooper/Toshiko Sato, Gwen Cooper/Rhys Williams
Warnings: pregnancy, angst

Recced because:This story is angsty and heart-wrenching, but not in an overly dramatic kind of way. The author uses different fonts to differentiate between different times and plays with flashbacks very effectively.

Let's take a break from depressing fic, shall we.

Story: A Quarter of Your Kingdom
Author: Schildkroet
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 8,386
Author's Summary: Jack and the Doctor have saved the world. Again. Now it is up to Owen to save them, on threat of imaginary death. Such is the life of a doctor at Torchwood.
Characters/Pairings: The Doctor/ Captain Jack Harkness, Owen Harper
Warnings: None

Recced because: It's fluffy fluff. But even though I have a very low threshold for fluff, it doesn't bother me or get on my nerves in the case of this story. A Quarter of Your Kingdom manages to be funny and fun and sweet. The Doctor and Jack show up back in Torchwood after an adventure gone somewhat wrong, and for the first part of the story, Owen finds himself being the Doctor's Doctor in a very Owen-ish, sarcastic way. The second part of the story has a lot of entertaining, comic scenes between the Doctor and Jack, and in between the comedy, a lot of sweetness appears.

Hello, I'm Auntie Singe Addams and you'll be my captive for the next week. I'm a huge fan of the funny, weird and romantic side of WHO and I'll be reccing a wide range of stories starring many different Doctors and Companions, classic and current, as I can possibly find. Some of them may be a little rough around the edges but all will have one thing in common. They're entertaining!

First up...

Author's summary: "While searching a library for a certain book, Frobisher finds something neither he nor the Doctor were looking for."
Characters: Frobisher and the 6th Doctor
Warnings: None

Recced because: I thoroughly enjoyed it. It's a quirky, well-characterized and humorous fic and I admit to being fascinated by Frobisher.

Story: Hourglass
Author: Schildkroet
Rating: Adult
Word Count: 15,594
Author's Summary:
LotTL AU. The Master doesn't die. The Doctor 'keeps' him. Trapped in the TARDIS together they have nowhere to run, and the Doctor slowly goes mad. The Master already is.
Characters/Pairings: Jack Harkness, Tenth Doctor, Master (Simm)
Warnings: Explicit Sex, Explicit Violence, Non-Con

Recced because: It's absolutely devastating. Out of all of the wave of fics that could have had "The Master doesn't die. The Doctor 'keeps' him" as their summary, this is my favourite. It is dark, twisted, and kind of horrific. But it's an incredibly powerful piece of fic, from the first to last line.

EDIT: *sheepish* Sorry, I forgot the link. I blame the cold medicine, it's making my head fuzzy. HK.

Word Count: 1373
Author's Summary: Once upon a time there was a boy from Earth who met a man from the stars.
Characters/Pairings: Mickey/Eight, Rose, Ten
Warnings: None.

Recced because: How can I not? This is a weird and painful love story, exploring Mickey's not-quite-fitting role, with an odd pairing that somehow manages to work exactly. Schildkroet's somewhat formal diction fits the story exactly, and gives it the feel of some of the best of the BFAs. It's sweet and poignant and painful and gorgeous and ow.

Story: Out of Reach
Author: by schildkroet
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 610
Author's Summary: Jamie tries to remember.
Characters/Pairings: James McCrimmon, The Doctor (2nd)
Warnings: You may cry.

Recced because: Despite its brevity, this story will stick with you long after you've read it. I read it first right after Journey's End, and the parallels to Donna's ending made me get pretty disgustingly emotional. Jamie's voice is wonderful (and isn't clogged up with unnecessary accenting) and the brief story flows beautifully. I really like this story.

Story: Gravity
Author: schildkroet
Rating: All Ages
Author's summary: Jenny soon learns that the cosmos is a better place if you can share it.
Characters/Pairings: Jenny (from The Doctor's Daughter)/Astrid
Warnings: none
Word Count: 735 words

Recced because: I wasn't crazy about Jenny on the show, but this story treats her so lovingly it won me over; I already adored Astrid, and this is a perfect examination of what could be post-Voyage of the Damned. This is a beautiful little bite of a story, with Jenny learning, exploring, and running both from and toward her past, and finding an ally in an unexpected form. They are each other's centre of gravity: together they can take on the universe.
