Story: Flashing Before
Author: were_lemur
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 535
Author's Summary: As Donna dies (from a heart attack, at about 100 years old), she finally remembers the Doctor.
Characters/Pairings: Donna Noble, Tenth Doctor
Warnings: Major Character Death (see prompt)

Recced because: Thinking seriously about what happened to Donna in Journey's End is something I try to avoid doing whenever possible, because of how legitimately depressing it was. If I were in Donna's place, I'd rather take my memories and my chances than go back to the life I'd left behind. But I also have trouble reading fix-its, because they're either too reminiscent of the original tragedy (see, re: depression), or because they skip over it lightly and she's all sunshine and happiness a moment later. That's where this fic comes in. It doesn't softpedal the sadness, but it also offers a legitimate excuse for not dwelling on it: would you choose to spend your last moments being sad and betrayed and furious, or instead dwell on the wonder of memories you'd lost - and the wonder of the life you did live, after all? It's exactly the right sort of smiling-through-the-tears to do justice to the original and still offer some measure of peace.

Story: Lust of the Time Lords
Author: were_lemur
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 100
Author's Summary: The Doctor helps the Master make a different choice
Characters/Pairings: Jack, Ten/Simm!Master
Warnings: Swearing

Recced because: In some alternate, much funnier universe, this is the real ending to "Last of the Time Lords." The Doctor's sworn never to speak certain words, but something tells me these aren't the words RTD had in mind. Probably, anyway.
