Story: An Evil Memory Lingering
Author: whispersecho
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 1372
Author's Summary: Perivale, 1983: a thirteen-year-old girl runs from an all-too-real nightmare seeking the solace of an old house no one ever visits. What she finds is a house of dead things that aren't quite dead.
Characters/Pairings: Ace McShane
Warnings: Some spoilers for Ghost Light.

Recced because: In Ghost Light Ace returns to the scene of her worst memory: this is that worst memory played out in full and it's excellent and thoroughly unnerving – shivery-good.

Story: That First Night
Author: whispersecho
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 100
Author's Summary: Sometimes a thing becomes so familiar you don't notice it until it's missing.
Characters/Pairings: Susan Foreman
Warnings: None

Recced because: This drabble is a well-written coda to The Dalek Invasion of Earth. In just 100 words, whispersecho captures this moment in Susan's life and presents in it a way that makes the situation easy to relate to and its poignancy keenly felt. If I said anything more I'd give too much away; just go read it and enjoy!

Author: whispersecho
Rating: None given (Gen)
Author's Summary: Inspired by and shamelessly filking bits from Paul Cornell's NA Human Nature... also contains spoilers for Love and War and Sanctuary. Right...I think it's really finished this time.
Characters/Pairings: Seventh Doctor, Ace McShane, Benny Summerfield, (Seven/Ace)
Warnings: None
Word Count: 8,419

Recced because: The story of the Doctor becoming John Smith and falling in love with Joan Redfern originally belonged to the Seventh Doctor, and included his companion Benny. Whisperecho brilliantly takes the original story and adds back what is missing - Ace. Ace shows up at the school, not knowing the the Doctor has used the arch to turn human. John Smith doesn't know Ace, but his psyche has incorporated her memory into his past in a very interesting (and telling) way. Lovely and true to character. Though it references a couple of the books you don't have to know them - just that at some point Ace left Seven to travel on her own, and misses him.

A little hint of what is to come. )
