Story: Let Her Under Your Skin, Into Your Heart
Author: Starling Night
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 2735
Author's Summary: Someone’s figured out a way to save lives that involves painkillers, regeneration, and a lot of surgery. It’s not much fun for the Doctor - but isn't saving people worth the price?
Characters/Pairings: Eleventh Doctor, Amy Pond

Recced because: I'm starting off my week of reccing with a darkfic. Just a quick note that this story contains somewhat graphic descriptions of mutilation, starting in the second paragraph. This material suits the tone of the fic, though, which is chilling and disturbing. Basically, the Doctor finds himself in a very unpleasant situation, and he ends up making two difficult decisions. I'm still mulling over his choice at the end of the story.

Here we are, last day of recs from me...

I wanted to end on a Dark!Note (as is my wont) so I will get to this last rec without futher ado!:

Story: And I Must Scream
Author: Starling Night
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 2,365
Author's Summary: Silence has fallen, but the Doctor is screaming in the dark, immobile and imprisoned for all eternity. AU from The Pandorica Opens.
Characters/Pairings: Amy Pond, River Song, The Doctor (11th)
Warnings: Alternate Universe, Horror

Recced because: Ohhh, how I love a good 'What-If?' and horror-tale wrapped all in one - and this fiction fits the bill! The Pandorica Opens/The Big Bang could have gone wrong in OH-so-many ways and this fiction sets up a delightfully horrifying 'what-if' that rings so true and hurts so much, even as you cannot stop reading! This is one of my top ten reads in Who Fandom. I have it saved on three different fiction sites, just in case I ever need a fresh shot of the shivers to get me rolling down the dark!side again. Just a phenomenal, believable set up. Pacing is gorgeous and the reactions all around are just perfect. We won't mention the ending. THAT...you have to see for yourself! *Wicked chuckle* Go on - have a peek - you can thank me later...

Excerpt behind the Cut )

Be sure to thank her for the nightmares - I'm sure she'll be happy to hear about them! *Laughs* Hope you enjoyed as much as I have!

It has been a great pleasure reccing for youse guise this week. I'm hoping you liked (even had some love for) all the awesome fics and I look forward to doing this again, if Fate and Time allow. Maybe next time I'll have a few more multi-era fictions to bring to the table - but all I can say is, I did my best. As long as there was something for everyone, I am content!

Until Next Time!
