Well, that’s it for me at [ profile] calufrax. However, you can catch me reccing smut starting tomorrow at [ profile] three_settings, and I have a few good selections prepared already. I’ll see you then.  But before I go, I’d like to rec one last fic.

Story: Silence
Author: Glinda
Rating: Teen
Word count: 668
Author's summary: She lets her in, makes her tea, and finds some gin to lace it with, without a word.
Characters/pairings: Iris Wildthyme/Izzy Sinclair
Warnings: none

Recced because: This is a beautiful Iris piece, which is enough to make it noteworthy. What's really unusual about Silence, however, is that it isn't comedy. Iris Wildthyme, the most irrepressible character ever to drive a double-decker bus and hit on every incarnation of the Doctor ever to cross her path, is pretty much made for comedy. That's what makes this fic so heart-stopping: We never expected to see Iris like this, and we never wanted to see Iris like this. Because this is Iris immediately after the Doctor has pressed the switch, and there aren't many fics out there that can make the Time War this interesting to me, or so real. Add to that a beautifully rendered Iris/Izzy relationship, and you've got a winner.

Story: The Importance of Good Tailoring
Author: [ profile] glinda_penguin/Glinda
Rating: Teen
Word count: 1000
Author's summary:Fey Truscott-Sade and Izzy Sinclair: Saving the World in Style
Characters/Pairings: Fey Truscott-Sade/Izzy Sinclair
Warnings: None

Recced because: This is a somewhat self-indulgent rec, as it was the fic I received in this year's [ profile] dw_femslash ficathon. But it deserves a lot more attention than it's had, because it's very very good indeed, and the only reason I can think of for it largely seeming to pass fandom by is that not enough people are into the wonderfulness Doctor Who Magazine comic strip in general, or its awesome canon femslash pairing Fey/Izzy in particular. This fic gets these two companions of the other-other iteration Eighth Doctor just right, and in such a way that it serves perfectly well as an introduction to them (well, OK, it probably helps if you know that Fey is bonded with Shayde, a superpowerful construct from the Matrix, but I've just told you so there you go).

Go. Read. Be converted. Then go out and buy the collections.
