Author's Summary: Travelling between worlds to find the Doctor, Rose meets only one person who knows her by name.
Characters/Pairings: Rose, River
Warnings: None

Recced because: It's timey-wimey, always a plus, and almost a must when writing about River Song. It's a story that could fit easily into canon, and it's great to see part of Rose's journey and the strength she finds within herself to travel all alone. The interactions between Rose and River are delightful, mysterious at times, but also comforting. Each of them gets a chance to shine in this story, and it's clearly not a competition. It's also beautifully and thoughtfully written and very true to the characters.

Story: before time there was a void until a voice said 'I' and was "vulnerable and divine"

Author's Summary: The Doctor. And then, Jack. Always Jack. Takes place after TDD.
Characters/Pairings: Ninth Doctor/Jack
Warnings: Explicit sex

Recced because: The Doctor is just the perfect balance of intense, know-it-all, and caring in this. Every piece of dialogue works to push the story forward, and the glimpses of Jack's background are haunting.  There's also a sexy Boeshane linguistics lesson.  This is a great story for reconciling the Jack from Doctor Who and the Jack from Torchwood without lessening either characterization.

Author's Summary: The Doctor learns, to his dismay, that carrying young companions comes with complications.
Characters/Pairings: Adric/Nyssa, implied Fifth Doctor/Ainley!Master, Tegan
Warnings: None

Recced because: The Doctor's reactions and little asides to himself are adorably hilarious. The voices are spot on, the Doctor is just so repressed, and the Master is so obviously taken with him that he just goes along with whatever the Doctor says, albeit with a ton of snark. The whole thing is very entertaining, especially with Tegan being her no-nonsense, take-charge self.

Hi there! :) I'm [livejournal.com profile] alt_universe_me, and I'll be your reccer this week. I'm a big fan of Classic Who, New Who, and Torchwood, and I'll try to rec a variety of fics.

Story: Strays
Author: Nancybrown
Rating: Adult
Word Count: 1,336
Author's Summary: "You dreamed me awake."
Characters/Pairings: Amy/Ianto, mentions of Rory
Warnings: semi-explicit sex

Recced because: Crossing over from Torchwood to Doctor Who can be a difficult enterprise in a story, but this fic manages to capture the mood so well, so that it just fits the characters perfectly. Everyone in this story is so very human, just reaching out for comfort, giving and taking without blame. Rory is in the background, but not forgotten, and not marginalized, which is great to see when pairing Amy up with someone else. The ending is hopeful, and beautiful, and even though the Doctor isn't actually in the fic, I think he would very much approve.
