Story: Painting Over Cracks
Author: BeNiceToNerds
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 2,122
Author's Summary: The timeline repairs itself, as best it can. Some cracks are just easier to fix than others. Sally Sparrow's life changes yet doesn't when the Doctor's actions on the Byzantium wipe the Weeping Angels and their paradox out of existence.
Characters/Pairings: Eleventh Doctor, Sally Sparrow, Others
Warnings: None
Recced because:
What I like about this story is that the author really tried something different in making it timey wimey, and yet never lost the thread of the story.  It explores the implications of the cracks and universe re-boot, the multiple realities that the Doctor has in his head, and the nagging feeling that something else should have happened that some poor mortal humans have in their heads.  It was an ambitious undertaking, and I admire ambition.  It is also creepy, in the way that a story involving the Weeping Angels should be creepy.

Story: There Was a Master in a Game
Author: Azriona
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 66712
Author's Summary: Gallifrey wasn’t entirely lost when it went back into the Time Lock; it just got stuck. The Master wants out. Isn’t he lucky that the Doctor left him a way?
Characters/Pairings: K-9, Lynda Moss, Sally Sparrow, The Master (Simm), Romana, OCs
Warnings: none

Recced because: I'll be honest and say that I wasn't initially planning on reading this fic when it came out. It didn't have any pairings I recognize or fangirl, and I'm not really into The Master fics, so I was gonna take a pass. Then, my Friend List literally exploded with praise for this fic, so I decided to read it and see what all the fuss was about. SO GLAD I DID!! It is an incredibly funny, ingenious account of the Master post-End of Time. We know and love him as an evil crazy guy ... but, between the crack!tastically funny dialogue, this fic has mystery (what is the point of the game?) and even character development, which is a rare feat for a crack!fic to pull off so beautifully and believably!! I read it the whole thing in one sitting 2 days before a big midterm - that is how much I liked it!! I hope you enjoy it as well! =D

<b>Author's Summary:</b>“This is ridiculous,” said the Doctor at last, disbelievingly. “I’m nine-hundred and three years old. I shouldn’t be carded.” The adventures of Sally Sparrow and Eleven. (Response to the Jessa L'Rynn April ChallengeII lulz!)

This story is simply gold. The characters are well thought out, the voices ring in true, if hysterical, tones and I was unable to stop laughing the whole way through my first read. I'm recommending it to you because I still laugh out loud, each time I read it through. So go, enjoy the best cure for a case of the Mondays: laughter!

Warnings: Doctor age casting spoilers, if you somehow have been living under an internet rock these past six months...

Recced because:
Now that we’ve all got over the shock of the new Doctor, we can get down to business pondering the potential ramifications of this newest and as-of-yet unseen incarnation. For example, what might happen if his companion pranked him by, say… stealing the psychic paper just as he’s about to place his order at the pub?

Pure silliness, lulz, and socks. This story manages a plot, characterization, and backstory even as absurdities pile on absurdities. If you don't giggle at least once at the Doctor's predicament you are a hard, mirthless being.

Story:  Time and Curry Chicken
Author: ellisbelle
Rating: Teen
Word Count:  1,841
Author's Summary: Sally Sparrow fancied she could tell a lot about a person by what movies they rented.
Characters/Pairings:  Donna Noble/Sally Sparrow
Warnings:  Sex, not super-graphic

Recced because:
  Enjoy some femslash this Friday!  Donna/Sally Sparrow is not a pairing I’d have come up with, but it works beautifully.  Donna, sometime after JE, becomes a customer at Sparrow and Nightingale, often talking loudly on her cell phone while shopping, and Sally develops a bit of a crush.  Both characters' voices are dead-on as they banter. The story has loads of great humor, but also a bit of wistful mystery as Sally senses that Donna is more than she seems.  It's a sweet (never saccharine) romantic comedy for those left behind.

try a taste! )
