Author's Summary: Rory Williams knows there is a ghost on the TARDIS.
Characters/Pairings: Rory/Amy, Eleven, mention of past Doctor/Rose
Warnings: none

Recced because: Who doesn't like a bittersweet ghost story? It's short and pitch-perfect: Rory's still finding his sea legs, so to speak, and this fic perfectly encapsulates just how creepy the TARDIS would be when you're not sure of your welcome. Add in a nostalgic nod to a chapter of the Doctor's life that's over (or is it?) and you've got yourself a wonderful little read.

Author's summary: In the summer of 2011, my grandmother died, my mum had an affair, and the Smiths moved in next door.
Characters: The Doctor (Duplicate 10th), original character
Warnings: none

Recced because: This astoundingly lovely story somehow manages to make me smile and put me right on the verge of tears, all at the same time. The story features no invading aliens, no mystery, and hardly any of the Doctor: it's just an honest tale about growing up (and running away). The Doctor's limited presence injects a special sort of magic to it -- and, let's be honest, who wouldn't have loved to have the Doctor as a next door neighbor?

Author's Summary: Yvonne Hartman, at the beginning.
Characters/Pairings: Yvonne Hartman
Warnings: None

Recced because: Yvonne is one of my favorite minor characters in New Who, and here we see her during her very first encounter with the Torchwood Archives, when she discovers exactly who the Institute is up against. "For Queen and Country" is a character study, and a terrific one, too, taking what we know about Yvonne from canon – her intelligence, her fearlessness, and her blind patriotism – and expanding on it so that we fully understand the circumstances and emotions that ultimately draw her into single-minded pursuit of the Doctor.
