Author's Summary: Barbara Wright had had so many chances, in so many ages, but only one ever came to fruition. A series of short drabbles written because of the number of potential lovers Barbara Wright could have chosen, and the one she did choose.
Characters/Pairings: Barbara Wright/Ian Chesterton, Other Characters
Warnings: None (but you may need to know at least a little about several First Doctor serials)

Recced because: This is a unique series of vignettes focusing on Barbara and an interesting scenario (what if she had chosen someone other than Ian?).

Author's Summary: He wished the beeping would stop. It was bad enough only having hours to live, but listening to those hours being counted down by that shrill monotonous beep was intolerable. It wasn’t that he didn’t trust the Doctor and Barbara and Susan to get him out of this situation – they’d been in difficult circumstances before, after all, but that he didn’t trust the justice system here one little bit. It may not matter that they could prove he was innocent if everyone else was so convinced he was guilty.
Characters/Pairings: Ian Chesterton
Warnings: (reposting Author's note): Warnings for execution, and spoilers for Keys of Marinus. I don't know what made me wonder what would happen if Barbara and the Doctor didn't catch the murderers in time, but I did wonder, so here it is.

Recc'ed Because: This one was only posted a few days ago but it really grabbed my attention, just because of the mixture of the mundane world amid the absolute madness of the overarching idea of time traveling adventures, and of course the dread and helplessness and heartbreak of the inevitable. Even reading the warning, the reader is right there with Ian on the inability to process the absurdity and reality of the whole thing. It's dark and sad and horrible, and brilliant for all that.
