Story: Look for Connections
Author: SummerRayn
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 1196
Author's Summary: "The teacher they call "The Friz" is as mysterious to herself as she is to her students. She has a feeling she isn't supposed to remember where she comes from--but he's not easily forgotten. A reminiscence and, yes, a Magic School Bus crossover."
Characters/Pairings: Romana, Fourth Doctor
Warnings: None

Recced because: I love crossovers. I love well-done crossovers even more. And most of all I love crossovers so perfect that they might as well be canon. This is one of those crossovers.
I always knew that the Friz had to be a Time Lady, and this exploration of precisely how that might have been was done beautifully. I really enjoyed the remembered interactions between Romana and the Doctor--in particular, SummerRayn did an brilliant job of explaining the concept of a school bus (something so common to us) as an element of an entirely different culture. It's not often that we get to see the Earth described that way.
And for those of us who watched/read Magic School Bus as a kid, that last line means nothing less than adventure. A wonderful fic!

Author's Summary: She gets headaches, sometimes. She feels lost and lonely and like something important is missing, but she doesn't know where to find it... Donna Noble, post Journey's End. Oneshot.
Donna noble
Warnings: None

Recced because: This wasn’t on my original rec list, but it kept calling to me throughout the week, begging to be given a place. I’ll admit to having a little love-affair with JE-fixits for Donna. This one, though, stands out above the rest. The realism in this, the desperation, and the compelling little voice that keeps Donna going all add up to a story that is hopeful, bittersweet, and wonderful. Best temp in Cheswick.
