Title: Your History Written in Stars and Time
Author: such_heights
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 1470
Author's Summary: Donna's forgotten. The universe hasn't.
Characters/Pairings: Donna Noble
Warnings: None

Recc'ed Because: It's Donna Noble, dealing in her usual way with being somewhat of an intergalactic celebrity. The prose and dialogue seem effortlessly perfect, and the snapshots of her encounters are brief but vibrant and creative. In short: it's brilliant, funny, quirky, and then punches you in the gut in the end.

Story: fly me to the moon

Rating: All Ages

Author's Summary: After the moon landing, Canton comes home. Canton/his boyfriend, the Doctor & the Ponds.
Characters/Pairings: Amy Pond, Canton Everett Delaware III, Other Character(s), Rory Williams, The Doctor (11th)
Warnings: Spoilers for The Impossible Astronaut/Day of the Moon, obviously.

Recced because:

I really just like this because I liked Canton so much. such_heights gives him a totally sensible, fleshed-out boyfriend, and I'm a sucker for sensible, fleshed-out OC's. They have Serious Talks about what happened, and then the Doctor shows up. And then he shows them a universe that's so big, it's got no room for idiotic things like harassment because of race or sexual orientation. This is a warm, fluffy fic which is mostly about Canton and his boyfriend, with the Doctor and the Ponds along for the ride.

Story: The Sound of Silence
Author: such_heights
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 1,113
Author's Summary: The silence makes it easy, somehow. Amy/Eleven/Vincent, 5x10 missing scene.
Characters/Pairings: 11th Doctor, Amy Pond, Vincent Van Gogh
Warnings: None
Recced because:
The Starry Night is the first painting that I fell in love with when I was a child, so the description in this story of how Amy has felt about Vincent since childhood really resonates with me.  I think it is a lovely missing scene, and beautifully written.

Author's Summary: She spends so much time worrying about them, but right now they're both here with her, and they're both safe. (Amy/Rory, 6x03 coda)
Characters/Pairings: Amy/Rory, Eleven
Warnings: None

Recced because: I love this TARDIS team and this is a brilliantly accurate portrayal of them. This fic is full of lovely details of life inside the TARDIS, and the dialogue is sweet, funny and entirely true to character as Amy and Rory recover from the events of Curse of the Black Spot. Also, there is Amy, Rory and Eleven in a cuddle pile.

Story: The Alien-Fighters' Social Club
Author: such_heights
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 2540
Author's Summary: [A Torchwood/Stargate: Atlantis crossover] Sheppard and his team were to stay based with Torchwood Three until such a time as the Daedalus was in orbit. A chance to improve inter-organisational relations, apparently.
Characters/Pairing Captain Jack Harkness, Gwen Cooper, Owen Harper, Toshiko Sato, Ianto Jones, Stargate Atlantis team (Sheppard, McKay, Teyla and Ronon).
Warnings: None.

Recced because: It's the old age question of science fiction. What's the faster ship, The Enterprise or the Millennium Falcon? Who's the worse alien menace, the Daleks or the Borg? Which team is more incompetent, Torchwood or Sheppard's Atlantis team? This deliciously hilarious crossover makes sure to answer at least one of these questions. Even though I'll forever have a soft spot for the franchise, I'm not a big fan of Stargate Atlantis. But this story not only exploits the best of both worlds, it also feels quite accessible for those who are not familiar with the crossover.

Author's Summary: Here lie sundry records and conversations pertaining to the changing situation of Torchwood Three circa the turn of the 21st century.
Characters/Pairings: Jack Harkness, Suzie Costello
Warnings: N/A

Recced because: There aren't enough fics out there featuring Jack and Suzie. And this is an excellent one looking at how Jack came to run Torchwood Three and how Suzie came to work for him. It's brilliantly written being made up of personnel files, e-mails and phone calls to Torchwood One and snippets of Jack and Suzie's conversations. And the ending manages to be marvellously hopeful and doomed.

Story: In An Interstellar Burst
Author: such_heights
Rating: Teen
Author's summary: Donna's got a teleport, Rose has an aversion to beaches, and maybe Martha's not quite as done with all of this as she thought. Next stop: everywhere.
Characters/Pairings: Donna, Rose/Martha
Warnings: none
Word Count: ~3,000 words

Recced because: A delightful little AU, wherein three excellent companions find a solution to all the problems presented in Journey's End and go out to explore the universe together. The friendship between the women is terrific (and Rose and Martha's relationship is subtle and hot), and it's comedic without being silly, sweet without being sappy, and lots of fun.
