Story: Five Times Polly Patched Up Ben (And One Time Ben Got to Do the Honours)
Author: vvj5/[livejournal.com profile] lost_spook
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 3126
Author's Summary: Ben gets injured by everything from Cybermen to TARDIS appliances. Luckily for him, Polly's always on hand to pick up the pieces. More or less, anyway.
Characters/Pairings: Ben/Polly, First Doctor, Second Doctor, Jamie.
Warnings: None, I think.

Recced because: Ben/Polly is pretty much on the same scale as Ian/Barbara when it comes to Companions Who Obviously Married Each Other. This story is packed with charm and sweetness, just like our lovely couple.

Story: Roman Holiday
Author: yesjamie
Rating: Adult
Word Count: 1346
Author's Summary: Ian and Barbara, alone together in the Roman villa.
Characters/Pairings: Ian/Barbara, First Doctor, Vicki
Warnings: Explicit sex.

Recced because: This is a kinkmeme story, which of course means that it's smutty. However, the porn - while lovely in its own right - is made even lovelier by Barbara and Ian being in character and Barbara getting her History on. Admit it, you all think they got it on in the Roman villa!

Story: If I Grow Old
Author: csg1
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 851
Author's Summary: Koschei's far too reckless.
Characters/Pairings: First Doctor (Academy Era)/Master (Academy Era)
Warnings: None. Angst, I suppose.

Recced because: A nice portrayal of the Master's early recklessness (and it must be fairly extreme if it upsets the Doctor) and the Doctor's feeling that his best friend is not all there. The final line is darkly ironic.

Story: Dancing
Author: [livejournal.com profile] jjpor
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 3781
Author's Summary: Sometimes a dance is just a dance. And sometimes, it is much more than that. And sometimes, it is hard to tell which it is.
Characters/Pairings: Four/Romana II
Warnings: *scratches chin thoughtfully* Hmmm, I guess you might want ice cubes nearby? Especially if it's warm.

Recced because: Because it's so very, very hot. No, really; it's one-step-removed smut, in that no actual sex happens and yet it's most definitely highly erotic. And intense. And intimate. Actually, maybe I shouldn't have posted this on a hot summer's day?

Rating: Adult.
Word Count: 1526
Author's Summary: The Doctor, Romana, time and smut. That's all.
Characters/Pairings: Four/Romana II
Warnings: Smut, PWP.

Recced because: First of all, I'm terribly sorry about reccing two Four/Romana II tiemsex stores this week. You gracious mods may scold me if you want. However, I just found out that this story had not yet been recced on this fine community and I simply had to recitify this. There is Time. There is smut. There is love. And Rassilon saw it and it was good. Honestly, it's gorgeous stuff.

Author's Summary: He doesn't really want the Master, but it's too late for that.
Characters/Pairings: Ten/Simm!Master
Warnings: Angst, maybe.

Recced because: It's a little reflection on how the Doctor is addicted to being alone and he and the Master totally deserve each oter. So true.

Story: A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes
Author: [livejournal.com profile] jjpor
Rating: Teen, I suppose.
Word Count: 3075
Author's Summary: They say be careful what you wish for, because you just might get it. How much worse must it be to get it and then lose it?
Characters/Pairings: Nine/Romana II, Rose Tyler, Jack Harkness.
Warnings: Angst.

Recced because: It's Nine/Romana, which is awesome by default. Seriously, though, it's a bittersweet 'what if' account of the Doctor and Romana trying making a life for themselves in the ruins of the war, only having each other to cling to. Or is it? Can be read as a part of [livejournal.com profile] jjpor's War in Heaven series or by itself.

Word Count: 5043
Author's Summary: Sometimes all a person can do is move forward and hope for the best.
Characters/Pairings: Liz Shaw/The Brigadier, Third Doctor, Sergeant Benton.
Warnings: Um, heartbreak?

Recced because: I really enjoy Liz/Brig, even though we know that they don't end up together. [livejournal.com profile] settiai beautifully brings to life a brief, passionate affair between two people who don't quite know how to deal with their emotions, as well as the friction between the Brig's old-fashioned chivalry and Liz' independence.

Story: A Learning Experience
Author: [livejournal.com profile] rivendellrose
Rating: Adult
Word Count: 2862
Author's Summary: Romana accidentally lets slip a secret she’s been keeping from the Doctor, and he doesn’t take it very well. Fortunately, Romana knows how to get their relationship back on track.
Characters/Pairings: Four/Romana II
Warnings: Explicit sex

Recced because: I've read this fic several times and it never fails to make me smile. It's a good-natured take on the half-a-millenia age-difference between the Doctor and Romana. The Doctor's flustering, the discussion about ''underage'' partners and Romana's ability to turn the tables on the Doctor are a delight. Plus, there's a nice bit of smut at the end.

Author's Summary: The world ends and Susan is free.
Characters/Pairings: Susan Foreman/David Campbell, First Doctor, Barbara Wright
Warnings: None

Recced because: A really lovely, bittersweet take on Susan's thoughts as she says goodbye to her grandfather. I like how Susan is given true agency: her wish to follow her own path, to experience stability and her deep love for her grandfather, while at the same time choosing a life different from his.

Author's Summary: Cold hands, burning heads, boiling stomachs.
Characters/Pairings: Doctor/Romana, K-9
Warnings: Nuclear fallout stuffs, genocidal angst

Recced because: Because it should have been recced a long time ago. It's basically this beautiful, feverish mesh of alieness and Time Angst and Sehnsucht.

Characters/Pairings: Rose Tyler, Jackie Tyler, Mickey Smith, Tenth Doctor, the TARDIS
Warnings: Hilarity

Recced because: A mockery of certain Post-Doomsday stories. This should be quite enough to recommend it, IMO.

Recced because: It's Young!Doctor/Master, longing to escape, all young and in love and stuff, and seeing as we know how it all goes, it is also quite melancholy.

Word Count: 1957
Author's Summary: When Harry Met Lucy
Characters/Pairings: Simm!Master/Lucy Saxon
Warnings: Evilness, violent imagery.

Recced because: This is a sort of prequel to Beauty Was the Cause of That Effect. Basically, ''Harry'' meets Lucy at a ball, becomes fascinated by her quiet insanity and decides that she's the ''one''. Recced because of the wonderful language and the almost beautiful madness of Harry and Lucy's relationship.

Author's Summary: UFOs! Men in Black! Psychedelic Hippies! Tentacle-Beasts from Dimension X! New Mexico, 1968: Evil lurks beneath the Diablo Mesa as the Doctor and Romana take on the might of the Military-Industrial Complex; the Military-Industrial Complex probably ought to be very scared.
Characters/Pairings: Fourth Doctor, Romana II, K-9
Warnings: Explicit violence, drugs, hippiness

Recced because: This story might as well be a Classic Who serial. It has suspense, creative aliens, entertaining tertiary characters, not to mention delightful Four/Romana chemistry.

Story: Beauty Was the Cause of That Effect
Author: Calapine
Rating: All Ages, according to the author
Word Count: 3076
Author's Summary: It's the little things that bring two crazy people together.
Characters/Pairings: Simm!Master, Lucy Saxon, Simm!Master/Lucy
Warnings: General sociopathy by both characters, the Master snapping a bloke's neck, violent imagery

Recced because: Like the author said, it's about two people being brought together by their mutual insanity. Calapine makes you believe that yes, this is indeed how it must have happened. Lucy is wonderfully mad: a bored rich girl with a taste for death and Saxon!Master is his own delighful self, including something bordering on admiration for Lucy's potential for evil.

Story: Somedays
Author: nastally (Ana)
Rating: Teen, just to be safe.
Word count: 1536
Author's Summary: Why did the Doctor take Romana on a punt boat ride in 'Shada'?
Characters/Pairings: Fourth Doctor, Romana II, Four/Romana II
Warnings: Shameless romanace and fluff. Also, it's has song-lyrics. And implied sex.

Recced because: A gorgeous, sweet, touching take on why the Doctor and Romana went punting in 'Shada'. The author manages to keep them both perfectly in character while romancing each other, leaving no doubt about how in love they are, somehow without being maudlin. There's also a touch of Time Lord Otherness with the multiple tenses. If songfics put you off, well, keep reading anyway, because the lyrics are perfectly placed. To the point: so beautiful it almost hurts, with a vague hint of melancholy. Read!
