Hi! I'm Shelwass, both here and on Teaspoon, and I'm happy to be reccing for the first time! :)

Story: The Physics of Friendship (New London High #2)
Author: TimeLord1
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 6046
Author's Summary: New friends, old enemies, and a tough guy with a secret talent. Oh, and one diagrammed sentence.
Characters/Pairings: Amy Pond, Donna Noble, Jack Harkness, Jackie Tyler, Martha Jones, Other Character(s), River Song, Rory Williams, Rose Tyler, Sarah Jane Smith, The Doctor (10th), The Doctor (11th), The Doctor (8th), The Doctor (9th), The Master (Simm)
Warnings: Swearing

Recced because: This is the story that made me fall in love with the New London High series. It's one of the most innovative, captivating AUs I have ever had the pleasure of reading. The author seamlessly inserts the characters of Doctor Who into the setting of a teen drama, without losing any of the fantastic characterizations that makes them unique in the first place. It cleverly blends elements of canon, yet re-imagines the show as something entirely new, and entirely wonderful.

There's a blossoming 9/Rose love story, a super-shy and awkward Rory, a flirty teenaged Jack, and even a nod to Buffy the Vampire Slayer. And, because every high school drama needs its villains, there's Harry Saxon and his evil minions, the Dalecki brothers.

Excerpt )

Before you go off to read it, here's a quick lowdown on the Doctors at New London High. All of the Doctors are related to one another, and all of their names are variants on 'John Smith.'

Evan is Eight, John is Nine, Sean is Ten, and Ian is Eleven. These four, along with the majority of their companions, are high school students. The other Doctors are parents and uncles, and Sarah Jane is Evan and John's mother.

I hope you enjoy this story as much as I did, and, if you do, feel free to let the author know!

Hello, hello all! Tis PhoenixDragon - back again with a handful of recs! I'll try to do multi-era (I'll do my best) but I'm quite sure there will be something for everyone. I'm really excited to be sharing again this week - so let's get started, shall we?

Story: As The World Falls Down
Author: TimeLord1
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 23,356
Author's Summary: Rose Tyler rarely speaks. She is invisible. One day, she decides to take a walk down a tree-lined road to meet the madman that lives at the other end.
Characters/Pairings: Jackie Tyler, K-9, Rose Tyler, The Doctor (9th)
Warnings: Action/Adventure, Alternate Universe, Drama, General, Mystery

Recced because: Ahhh, this is what I consider one of the best kinds of Doctor Who fic. A fairytale (if you will) within a fairytale. It feels like a whole 'nother world, even as it is very much a Doctor Who fiction. This author has such phenomenal characterization, she can place these characters in any situation and keep it all in balance (and she has done so several times) and yet, you never feel as if you are out of place. Her grasp of the intricacies of the characters, the wonderfully vivid settings and the pacing of her plots makes all of her fiction worth a read. But this is one that sits very close to my heart and sits at the top of my favorites. I certainly hope you enjoy it as much as I have. Oh! And don't let the wordcount daunt you. Before you know it, the fiction is over and you are left blinking, wishing it could have gone on forever...
