Story: Time is not a Straight Line
Author: Lillibet
Rating: Adult
Word Count: 21536
Author's Summary: He was the Doctor. He never went back, never asked a second time. But times change. Rose deserved a second chance – and so did he. He needed a hand to hold, a person to run with, and a heart to love. He needed Rose.
Characters/Pairings: Rose Tyler, The Doctor (9th)
Warnings: Explicit sex.

Recced because: My last rec for this week is a Nine/Rose story in which Nine meets Rose before she meets him, and is chock full of wibbley-wobbley timey-wimey and beautifully written sex scenes. Their voices are perfect, and even though you may see the ending way before the last chapter arrives, it will still pull at your heart and not let go.

So, today's my last day at [livejournal.com profile] calufrax. Thank you for allowing me to rec wonderful stories here, and I hope to do it again sometime in the near future. Bye-bye! :D

Story: Intimacy
Author: Bibliophile1887
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 3631
Author's Summary: Regeneration is a terribly intimate process.
Characters/Pairings: The Doctor (13)
Warnings: Spoilers for major events in the first nine Doctor's eras. Also, TISSUES. MULTIPLE BOXES OF THEM.

Recced because: It's one of the first Whofics I ever read, and one I treasure dearly and re-read more than any other fanfic regardless of fandom. It's the last Doctor and a quiet introspection upon his life and the people in it, leading to an ending that is both heart-wrenching and beautiful, bittersweet and wonderful.

In short: if you read just one story I rec this week, let it be 'Intimacy'.

Story: Girl Anachronism
Author: Willdew
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 1292
Author's Summary: No more Lazarus. No more Harry. They're through with men; they shan't be tricked again.
Characters/Pairings: Clive Jones, Francine Jones, Leo Jones, Lucy Saxon, Martha Jones, Tish Jones
Warnings: Spoilers for the end of season 3, of course.

Recced because: Unconventional femmeslash is one of my most favoritest things to read, so a story with Tish/Lucy makes my heart sing with joy. The language is lovely, the characterization pitch-perfect, and it highlights a pairing there should definetly be more of in fandom. So, go and read!

Story: There's No Way Out Of Here
Author: MrWhat
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 1060
Author's Summary: When you come in, you're in for good.
Characters/Pairings: The Doctor (4th), K-9, Romana I
Warnings: None.

Recced because: This is one of the first Fourth Doctor-era fanfics I ever read, and even now it brings tears of laughter to my eyes. It is side-splitting hilarity told in diary format, and to say any more would spoil the fun, so go on and read!

Story: Le Temps Retrouvé
Author: Melengro
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 469
Author's Summary: Ian and Barbara, walking home.
Characters/Pairings: Barbara Wright, Ian Chesterton
Warnings: None, unless you don't know how Ian and Barbara leave the Doctor.

Recced because: The author describes the Ian/Barbara couple as "sickly-sweet", and they are, in a good and satisfying kind of way, the kind of couple that's impossible to break up cos they seem so perfect together. This is Ian/Barbara exploring that old trope "pretend we got married" and making it warm and believable and very very good.

Story: Between the Lines
Author: Infiniteviking
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 984
Author's Summary: It's easy for the Doctor to drop out of sight. It's somewhat harder for him to come back. Short, angsty oneshot set after The Five Doctors.
Characters/Pairings: Mike Yates, Sarah Jane Smith, The Doctor (5th)
Warnings: Spoilers for 'The Five Doctors'.

As my second rec for the day, here's a barely under 1k story set after 'The Five Doctors'. And it just about breaks my heart in a bittersweet way, because it's the Fifth Doctor after all that mess with Omega and he's come to see Sarah Jane; and after the way they originally parted in his previous regeneration, he's bound to be a little nervous after all that time.

The writing of the Doctor and the wonderful details and description (and Yates!) make this a welcome post-episode fic to an often dismissed adventure.

Hello, I'm [livejournal.com profile] fearlessfirefly and I'll be one of two people posting recs this week. I'll try to cover both classic and new series as evenly as possible, from Hartnell to Tennant and everyone in between.

This is one of two stories I'll be posting today to make up for missing yesterday. So, enjoy! :D

Story: Patient
Author: Persiflage
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 2010
Author's Summary: Martha meets a different Time Lord.
Characters/Pairings: Martha Jones, The Doctor (9th)
Warnings: Spoilers for s1's "Rose".

Recced because: I love the idea of Martha with Doctors other than Ten, and Persiflage does a fantastic job by imagining Martha meeting the Ninth Doctor during the events of season one - specifically the opener, "Rose". It's a Martha who has yet to stand on the moon and a Doctor still freshly wounded emotionally from the Time War, and the sparks between the two make for wonderful reading.

This is the first part of an AU series starring Martha and Nine; reccing the first story in the hopes more people start up reading this great series :D
