Author's Summary: Stuck in a prison cell in seemingly hopeless circumstances, Jo finds that she has unexpected company.
Characters/Pairings: Jo Grant, the Master (Delgado version)
Warnings: None

Recced because: It's a very sweet interaction between the characters. I honestly think these two could be friends, if they weren't on opposite sides. Strange to think that it's possible to get the warm-fuzzies from the Master, of all people...but it is possible! ♥ Enjoy!

Hello Craig [ profile] calufrax, I'm back! And I come bearing fun recs for this first week of April.

Title: The Checkup
Author: whatthefoucault
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 511
Author's Summary: That time Jamie takes a wee visit to the hospital after a little dust-up with some Cybermen.
Characters/Pairings: Ten, Mild Two/Jamie
Warnings: None

Recc'ed Because: It's a sweet little outtake of what could have happened set during both "Blink" and "The Invasion." Jamie's voice is very well done and it is nice to see a gentler side of the adventures and peril that they face on a daily basis. Given what we know of the future, the fleeting encounter here is poignant and bittersweet, like reliving an old memory.

Story: Blanket Castle; or, The Uncaffeinated Ones

Rating: G
Word Count: 1553
Author's Summary: Jamie sleeps in. Mayhem ensues.
Characters: Second Doctor, Jamie, Victoria
Pairings: Second Doctor/Jamie
Warnings: None
Recced because: Sweet, simple, fluff that makes you feel warm and fuzzy inside. True to the characters, if Jamie and the Doctor ever did get together this is probably how it happened.
Excerpt: “Jamie was certain that there were rules where he came from, rules certainly against things like kissing strange centuries-old men from other worlds; but somehow, out in this little blue box spiraling into the unknown, with all of time and space to call their home, those rules — Scotland itself, perhaps even the earth — seemed so tiny in the grand scheme of life as to make those rules seem like nothing more than a distant memory, and certainly nothing worth paying any regard.”
