Hi! I’m [livejournal.com profile] quiche_lorraine and this is my first time reccing on the community! I hope you’ll enjoy these stories as much as I do.

Lets start with a lovely, little character study.

Story: Ordinary Morning
Author: Trobadora
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 615
Author's Summary: Wood and soufflés and genius against the Daleks, for a year.
Characters/Pairings: Oswin Oswald
Warnings: None

Recced because:Little, heartbreaking exploration of the Oswin we meet in Asylum of the Daleks. In later episodes we learn more about Clara, but not about the others out there scattered over time and this piece is just is a nice look at the girl and the Dalek, full of little important details and foreshadowing.

Debate over reccing periods aside, the show must go on!

Story: Vox et Praeterea Mysteria
Author: johne
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 3733
Author’s Summary: She's a teenage rebel with a taste for explosives. She's a voice with an Internet connection. Together, they fight terrorists!
Characters/Pairings: Ace McShane/Oswin Oswald
Warnings: None

Recced because: Okay, I admit it, I have long carried an enormous girlcrush on Ace. This is the woman who brings a rope ladder and homemade explosives with her on Doctor-related adventures. This is the woman who waltzes through her one encounter with the Daleks and gives no flips, because she can just beat them up with her electrified baseball bat, or blow them up with her Nitro-9, or – oh, kind UNIT solider, is that rocket launcher for me? It is?

Then the show introduced Oswin Oswald, who I immediately fell down and worshipped as The Second Coming of Ace. They’re snarky, they’re competent, and they’re not going to let a bunch of rolling salt shakers with eggbeaters for hands get them down, amirite?

And then amazing author johne had them team up to fight terrorists, with sass, verve and style. The poor terrorists never stood a chance.

Story: The Completely True and Canon Story of How Oswin Oswald Seduced Jo Grant, or Jo Seduced Her, or Something
Author: Daystar Searcher
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 1,676
Author's Summary: "Jo, huh?" Oswin said. "First boy I ever kissed was named Joe."
Characters/Pairings: Oswin Oswald/Jo Grant, Third Doctor, Delgado!Master
Warnings: None

Recced because: Okay, it's my second Oswin story of the week, but this one has a completely different tone and approach – and besides, how often do you get to rec a story based on that (NSFW) photo of Katy Manning and a Dalek? Oswin and Jo make a funny, flirty, and adorable team, and while I can't say I've shipped Companion/Dalek before, I sure do now ... as will you, I hope.

Story: Physician, Heal Thyself
Author: Aiffe
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 4,051
Author's Summary: AU of Asylum of the Daleks. Oswin comes along as a companion, and the man who needs to fix things faces something he can't fix.
Characters/Pairings: Eleven, Oswin Oswald
Warnings: None

Recced because: After "Asylum of the Daleks," fandom turned out a number of good AUs in which Oswin the Dalek traveled with the Doctor, but this is one of my favorites. We don't see any more of their travels beyond the first day, when Oswin asks the Doctor to give her back her human voice, but the scene that takes place as he complies feels emotionally deep and very true to the awkwardness you'd expect from the characters in that situation. Oswin wants to be more than what she is, and the Doctor struggles with accepting her Dalekness and wanting to help her move beyond that. I'd love to see more of this AU, but the story as is feels self-contained and very satisfying.

Story: Everything But the Kitchen Sink
Author: Netgirl_y2k
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 1020
Author's Summary: Another important lesson Oswin learns is that creeping up on the Doctor while he sleeps and shouting, "EX-TER-MIN-ATE!" in his ear is only funny to her.
Characters/Pairings: Oswin Oswald, The Doctor (11th)
Warnings: None

Recced because: After meeting Oswin, who doesn't want to see the Doctor have a Dalek companion? From our short introduction to her, at least, the characterization is spot on. The author captures Oswin's flirty quips brilliantly. It's a quirky, clever story about what this unusual pairing could look like, and my absolute favorite Oswin Oswald story so far!

Be sure to stop by and let the author know if you enjoy it! :)
