Story: Let's Forget We're Running (Out of Time)
Author: zoicite
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 18064
Author's Summary: A gay man who lies about his name and his job asks her out in Trafalgar Square and she says yes. It sounds like the start of a joke and here she is waiting for the punch line.
Characters/Pairings: Donna/Ten, Donna/Lee
Warnings: None

Recced because: I couldn't very well do a whole week of reccing and not include at least one story with Donna. This is one of my favourite Donna fix-its, and considering how many of them I've read, that is saying something.

The story tackles many of the same things that other fics taking place after Journey's End also does, but it still manages to be both original and highly memorable. It swings masterly between hilarity and heart-break, making you laugh in the middle of things that are actually quite sad, and the other way around. There is a complexity to the characters and their relationships that is very compelling. Nothing is ever easy or clear-cut. It's penned with a lot of skill and humour, and the author has got such a perfect handle on Donna and her friendship with the Doctor that I never wanted the story to end!

Story: The Hypothetical Love Affair
Author: zoicite
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 5189
Author's Summary: The entire thing began as an attempt to get back at Donna’s mother.
Characters/Pairings: Tenth Doctor/Donna Noble

Recced because: Yes, I admit... I (and a few others) coaxed [livejournal.com profile] zoicite into joining the Teaspoon purely so I can rec this fic here.

This is my favorite Ten/Donna fic period. What I like the most about [livejournal.com profile] zoicite's stories is that - even when things get complicated and sex gets involved - the friendship between Ten and Donna is still treated as the most important factor, the most indomitable aspect of the relationship. It's fantastic, because there are so many Ten/Donna het writers these days that tend to lose sight of that.

Even if you don't ship them romantically, give this a go. You'd probably be pleasantly surprised.
