I think this will be my last. Thanks for having me :)

Story: Getting Through
Author: travels_in_time
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 3182
Author's Summary: He can't save them all. But if he's very lucky, maybe he can save just one.
Characters/Pairings:Ten/Simm!Master, Susan

Recced because: Confession time: I was bawling like a baby during Ten's farewell tour. Visiting all of his friends before he died was such a Ten thing to do. But the fridge logic moment is inevitable: how does he go from 'epic confrontation with the Time Lords' to farewell tour? Isn't he forgetting something? Or - let's be honest - someone? Someone who just exhibited a potential character turnaround of the sort Ten has canonically begged for on his knees? Someone whom leaving is tatamount to killing, since he can't exactly expect any kind of warm welcome back on Gallifrey? Never mind the whole 'burning' thing... I love you for many things, RTD, but the evenness of your writing is not one of them.

Fortunate, then, that travels_in_time has stepped up to fill the gap. If there were such a genre as an End of Time fix-it, I suppose this would be it: once more into the Time Lock, to right the last great wrong. Susan appears (rejoice!) to inject some added poignancy, a link from the beginning of time to its end (if you'll forgive me). This is the way Ten ought to have gone out: with none of the truly important things left undone.

Speaking of endings, this is going to be my last rec. Thanks again for having me! If you liked something I recced please let the author know. There's no such thing as too many reviews.

Story: Encounter in Cardiff
Author: travels_in_time
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 2243
Author's Summary: Someone in Cardiff has sent Professional Staffing Services an unusual package.
Characters/Pairings: Donna Noble, Jack Harkness
Warnings: N/A

Recced because: Sorry for missing the bulk of the week, I have been unconscious with flu. Anyway, as much as I love fics where Donna gets her memory back post JE this story is a fantastic look at Donna being brilliant without her memories returning. Jack is used to great effect. Plus it features Donna leading a group of alien fighting temps, what's not to love about that?

Author's Summary: Sumhting is very wrogn in teh Hub.
Characters/Pairings: Gwen Cooper, Ianto Jones, Jack Harkness, Owen Harper, Toshiko Sato

Recced because: Torchwood fandom produces some excellent fanfiction. Unfortunately, it produces some rubbish as well. Although sadly a little short, this fic encapsulates the nature of badfic perfectly, and will make you laugh out loud.

Story: Nothing But Sand
Author: travels_in_time
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 9527
Author's Summary: An unexpected event pulls Rose and Jack away from the Doctor, throwing them into separate timestreams.
Characters/Pairings: Jack (+ Jack + Jack), Ninth Doctor, Tenth Doctor, Rose, Ianto
Warnings: N/A

Recced because: This story is where Jack's timeline goes to get drunk. Seriously. You get three different versions of Jack, one before the Doctor and Rose, one with the Doctor and Rose, and the one from after. I found it really interesting how different Jack was at these three different times in his life, and yet he was still the same in all the ways that count. He might be a little more jaded and sad, but he's still Jack in all the ways we love.
The story itself seems to be one giant paradox in the making, but somehow they manage to avoid that.
