I spent yesterday hunting for a good Four/Leela fic (Leela being my favourite classic companion), but the few good ones I found had already been recced. Ditto with every Doctor/Sarah Jane story I had in mind. So with a heavy sigh I turn my attention back to New Who. Fortunately there are gazillions of great New Who fics out there!

Title: The Square Root of Pi
Word count: 3483
Author: Topaz Eyes
Author summary:  The nightmare did not end when they closed the door on Midnight.
Characters: Ten/Donna
Warnings: Explicit sex

Recced because:
Nothing beats a good hurt/comfort fic. There are, of course, a good many "Donna comforts the Doctor after Midnight" stories. This is a particularly good one, however, because both Ten and Donna are very much in character. The Doctor is wounded and defensive, and Donna is both consoling and sharp-tongued. It's easy enough for me to believe this might have happened after the episode!

I keep forgetting to say this, but I know you guys already know it-- if you like the story, go lavish love on the author!

Title: God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen
Word count: 1558
Author: Topaz Eyes
Author summary: It was time to accompany the Doctor back to his TARDIS.
Characters: Jackson Lake, The Doctor (10th)
Warnings: Fleetingly described sex

Recced because:
Well, first of all, how many stories feature a pairing between Ten and Jackson Lake? I haven't run across many, but it makes perfect sense to me-- they formed a very close bond in a brief amount of time. After all, if Jackson hadn't had other obligations, he might well have wound up travelling in the TARDIS. This story is a nice coda to "The Next Doctor," which fills in something we didn't see onscreen, but which seems quite believable. I love Jackson, and this story, which is from his POV, really manages to get across his formal speech patterns, his loss and grief, and his heartfelt concern for the Doctor's all-too-evident pain. It's a well-written and touching little piece about two wounded people seeking comfort from one another.

Word Count: 1226
Author's Summary: The important things get passed on--though perhaps not in the way we think

Recced because: I adore Donna, and this fic does a wonderful job of capturing her and how she might’ve worked through some of her losses in the Library. Plus I just love the fact it includes a recipe!
