Wow; that sure went fast, didn't it? We've come to the end of my latest run, and it's time to hand it over to the next member. :) I hope everybody enjoyed what I brought to the party this time. Sorry there were so many this time, but it's hard to narrow down the Awesome. ♥

Okay, time for my last rec, and I really think I have a treat in store for everybody...

Story: Teacher
Author: Thriaemis
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 801
Author's Summary: He punches again and screams as his index finger snaps. No problem, keep going. He punches again and thinks of her face, with those eyes and the never giving up. He will do this for her, as many times as he has to. Somewhere along the line, he forgets what she taught him.
Characters/Pairings: Twelfth Doctor
Warnings: Disturbing imagery.

To me, the episode 'Heaven Sent' is a perfect picture of horror, and this story absolutely nails that same horror. Just as in the episode, I read this fic wanting to protect the Doctor from everything, and you have to be damn good to make me feel that. It is chilling and painful, and beautiful in the darkest way. This story serves as a reminder of how brave and incredible the Doctor truly is.

Story: The Tyrant and the Tramp
Author: Joseph Q Publique
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 105
Author's Summary: In which appearances are deceiving.
Characters/Pairings: Second Doctor
Warnings: None.

Recced because: We're all familiar with the description of Two as the "cosmic hobo". But we also all know that there is something beneath the Doctor's surface, something that is not to be toyed lightly with. Someone's about to learn that lesson the hard way...

Story: Oh Thank Heaven
Author: ScooterTyme
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 2,817
Author's Summary: In a million years, Clara wouldn’t have been able to figure it out, but somehow the Doctor had sprung up at least a good four feet in the air, easily clearing the shelving across the aisle in front of him. His outstretched arms held his net as far in front of him as he could, his coat and legs trailing back in a smooth arc... and for a single moment, he actually looked almost graceful. His landing was anything but.
Characters/Pairings: Eleventh Doctor, Clara Oswald, Seventh Doctor, Ace McShane
Warnings: None.

Recced because: It is just plain adorable and giggle-worthy! Two Doctors and their respective companions, on the trail of a...nah. You wouldn't believe me if I told you! Just read it, and enjoy!

Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 1,183
Author's Summary: Sometimes the things you try to push away come back even stronger.
Characters/Pairings: Eleventh Doctor, the Dream Lord
Warnings: Potentially disturbing imagery.

Recced because: This author has never been recced here before. I find that shocking, because this story is fantastic. What's also shocking is that this is, at present, the only story the author has. Here's hoping that there will eventually be more to come, because I see large amounts of Talent within the fic you're about to read.

Story: Low Town
Author: JJPOR
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 25,810
Author's Summary: A murder on Gallifrey is bad enough; the murder of a prominent Time Lord in the heart(s) of Prydon Academy is even worse. Fortunately, Castellan Spandrell is on the case.
Characters/Pairings: Andred, Borusa, Other Character(s), Romana I, The Time Lords
Warnings: Explicit Violence

Recced because: This was just written a few days ago, but I felt it needed a rec ASAP. If this were a physical book, I would not have been able to put it down. I waited with bated breath for each update on Teaspoon, and it was worth the patience!

This story is deeply suspenseful, with unpredictable twists and turns. Excellent characterizations and descriptions, with a plot that pulls you in so quickly that you won't know what hit you.

Go and read this. You're in for a lot of laughs and cuteness!

Word Count: 350
Author's Summary: Rose misinterprets the Doctor's actions right after being trapped together in their new universe.
Characters/Pairings: Rose Tyler/Metacrisis Tenth Doctor; Jackie Tyler
Warnings: None given by the author. I'm gonna personally warn for potential steaminess.

Recced because: For the most part, I don't read very much that tends toward out-and-out-Sexy. But this one...I'm amazed it didn't steam up my computer screen! It is, in a word, yummy. It's just irresistible. :D

Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 370
Author's Summary: Rory and Amy make fun of the Doctor's flirting technique.
Characters/Pairings: Amy Pond, Rory Williams, Eleventh Doctor/River Song
Warnings: None.

Recced because: It makes me giggle every single time! It is precious and adorable, and very much in keeping with the characters' personalities. I want to hug them--I want to hug the writer! And I'm just a smidge envious; I wish I'd come up with this, or that I were as good at fluff.

*waves happily* Hi, guys! Looks like Irish is back again, with more goodies to share!

So, let's get started, shall we? First in line...

Story: A Fundamental Truth
Author: Pir8grl
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 358
Author's Summary: Tag scene to Boom Town.
Characters/Pairings: Jack Harkness, Rose Tyler, Ninth Doctor

Story: -less
Author: honeynoir
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 170
Author's Summary: You're Amy Pond.
Characters/Pairings: Amy Pond, the Eleventh Doctor
Warnings: None

Recced because: It's short, sweet, and lovely. Taking place during a beautiful early scene in 'The Beast Below', you get to be in Amy's head, feeling her wonder right along with her. I'm amazed that this little gem hasn't yet been recced, and I'm honored to be the one to amend that.

Story: Corrupting Influences or It’s All the Doctor’s Fault
Author: Dancingsalome
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 875
Author's Summary: For all he claims to dislike the Earth and its population, the Master seems to have adopted, and enjoys, quite a few human habits.
Characters/Pairings: The Master (Delgado version)
Warnings: None

Recced because: It's a very fun and cute look into the Master's justification for adopting so-called human habits. Oh, look: The Master's being adorable again! Well, if any version's going to, then Delgado's is the version to best pull it off, and this author is a pro at catching his wry humor and charm. You're gonna love this one. :D I think he would, too, really. Go have a look! ♥

Story: A Sticky Situation
Author: Rangersyl
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 5,607
Author's Summary: "This rescue," the Doctor admitted as he dangled over the chasm, "is a work in progress."
Characters/Pairings: The Eleventh Doctor/River Song
Warnings: None

Recced because: It honestly sounds like it could be an episode. There's excitement, suspense, danger, adventure, snark, and Eleven/River cuteness. Pretty much all you need, really. Plus creepy spider-like creatures. Actually? That makes me glad it's not an episode, now that I think about it...I'd much prefer to read about creepy spider-like creatures than see them. ^.^ Because these babies sound much scarier than the real thing! Anyway, it's a great story; I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
[identity profile] irishvampire13.livejournal.com
Story: Happy Campers
Author: Meadowlark
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 103
Author's Summary: The Doctor and Peri give camping a try.
Characters/Pairings: The Sixth Doctor, Peri Brown
Warnings: None

Recced because: How would you expect a camping trip with Six to go? Something tells me this won't end well. ;)
[identity profile] irishvampire13.livejournal.com
Story: All That Matters
Author: Pir8grl
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 244
Author's Summary: A tag scene to The Name of the Doctor.
Characters/Pairings: The Eleventh Doctor, the War Doctor, Clara Oswald
Warnings: None

Recced because: It's a brilliant closer to Season Seven, one which sets us up perfectly for the anniversary special. It also flawlessly shows the Doctor's self-contempt and protectiveness.
[identity profile] irishvampire13.livejournal.com
Story: Quiet Light
Author: whatthefoucault
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 1,523
Author's Summary: Stuck in a prison cell in seemingly hopeless circumstances, Jo finds that she has unexpected company.
Characters/Pairings: Jo Grant, the Master (Delgado version)
Warnings: None

Recced because: It's a very sweet interaction between the characters. I honestly think these two could be friends, if they weren't on opposite sides. Strange to think that it's possible to get the warm-fuzzies from the Master, of all people...but it is possible! ♥ Enjoy!
[identity profile] irishvampire13.livejournal.com
And now, time for a slight change of pace...

Story: Arrival
Author: Joseph Q Publique
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 104
Author's Summary: Every new adventure has a beginning.
Characters/Pairings: The Doctor (unspecified)
Warnings: None

Recced because: In just a handful of words, the author sets a magnificent, deliciously creepy scene. It left me hungry for more; hopefully, it will have the same effect on you. This is an author who, strangely, has not been recced before. I'm happy to fix that, because there's a lot to enjoy.
[identity profile] irishvampire13.livejournal.com
Story: Absolution
Author: Skyler10
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 1,219
Author's Summary: All this time, Tentoo has lived with the burden and haunting guilt of the day he ended the Time War. Well, he says ended, but it’s never really been over for him. Not with what he did, or how he did it. But what if Eleven could somehow get a message through the void to relay what really happened? That it didn’t end the way his part-human self thinks it did?
Characters/Pairings: Rose Tyler/Metacrisis Doctor, Eleventh Doctor
Warnings: None

Recced because: This was posted only yesterday, and I knew that I must add it to my rec list. I wanted to cry the moment I read it. It is simply beautiful, moving, a little but much-needed addition to 'The Day of the Doctor'. Every voice is perfectly in-character. I'm not sure what else to say. Just...enjoy. ♥
[identity profile] irishvampire13.livejournal.com
Hi, guys! *waves* Looks like it's time for ol' Irish to break out some goodies! I've scrounged around, and I think I have some real treats for you to enjoy. ^.^ So! Let's get started.

Story: Marital Arguments
Author: betawho
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 493
Author's Summary: The Doctor and the Tardis are having an argument; neither of them is going to back down.
Characters/Pairings: The Twelfth Doctor, the TARDIS
Warnings: None

Recced because: I was all set to start off with another of this writer's brilliant Eleven/River fics. Then I saw this, which was posted just last week, and I knew I needed to go in a different direction.

This is hilarious, cute as all get-out, and perfectly written. I seriously want this in an episode, because I can just see the look Capaldi would have on his face while delivering his end of the dialogue. His voice is flawlessly captured. You'll have a huge smile on your face after reading this gem!
[identity profile] irishvampire13.livejournal.com
Story: Sometimes I Wrestle with My Demons, Sometimes We Just Snuggle
Author: betawho
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 302
Author's Summary: Sometimes the best and worst parts of your life are the same thing.
Characters/Pairings: Eleventh Doctor/River Song
Warnings: None

Recced because: I always wait eagerly for this author's fics, and I am never let down when they arrive. This short gem is every bit as sexy-fun-cute as Eleven and River themselves.
[identity profile] irishvampire13.livejournal.com
Story: The Enmity of Ages
Author: Forge
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 1,718
Author's Summary: A battle that has stretched across time. From childhood games, to burning planets, to the Immortality Gate. The never-ending conflict between the Doctor and his oldest enemy.
Characters/Pairings: The Master (unspecified), the Doctor (unspecified)
Warnings: None

Recced because: I can't think of a word to say that would sell this one. It's just...good. Very damn good. We'll let it speak for itself.
[identity profile] irishvampire13.livejournal.com
Story: Propositions for Peace
Author: Calapine
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 1,123
Author's Summary: A compromise during the Time War.
Characters/Pairings: Romana II, the Master (Ainley version)
Warnings: None

Recced because: Two intriguing characters, interacting during their planet's darkest days. I think that pretty much says it all.

Edit: 1:15 AM

Actually, there is something to add. I just reread this mere moments ago. It's even better than I remembered. And I remembered it being excellent. Therefore...well, you can trust my judgment. ;-)
[identity profile] irishvampire13.livejournal.com
Story: Little Miss Sunbeam
Author: Dancingsalome
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 1,399
Author's Summary: Anne only met the man twice when she was four years old, but she never forgot it.
Characters/Pairings: Original character, the Master (Delgado version), Third Doctor, Jo Grant
Warnings: None

Recced because: If you're looking for a surprising and different side to the Master, you'll find it within this story. It was quite unexpected--after all, this is the Master we're talking about--but I could still see something like this happening. And I really enjoyed it. I'm sure you will, too!
[identity profile] irishvampire13.livejournal.com
Story: Dark, Dank, and Somewhat Gloomy
Author: Fayth
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 3,086
Author's Summary: They are out of milk--again--and need to take a short cut. The Doctor doesn't have a great sense of direction.
Characters/Pairings: Tenth Doctor, Rose Tyler
Warnings: A certain degree of spookiness

Recced because: "Spooky" and "adorable" are two words that don't usually belong in the same sentence. But, in this case, apply in equal measure. :D Because there is simply no other way to describe what you're about to read.
[identity profile] irishvampire13.livejournal.com
Story: Can't Run from Me
Author: fate_incomplete
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 920
Author's Summary: The one thing he can't run from is himself.
Characters/Pairings: Eleventh Doctor, Amy Pond, Rory Williams
Warnings: Slightly scary

Recced because: I've developed a fascination for stories featuring psychological horror, and this very aptly fits the bill! If you've a taste for that sort of thing, then you're very much in luck! ^.^
[identity profile] irishvampire13.livejournal.com
Ah. Well. Looks like it's my turn, again! *waves* Hello; Irish again, back for another round of recs! Hope you like the goodies I've brought for you, this time...

Well. Let's start with a bang, shall we? ^.^

Story: A Time to Live
Author: Kara Jade
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 306
Author's Summary: Once, we were as brothers. Closer than brothers; I had given him my hearts.
Characters/Pairings: The Master (author-created)
Warnings: None

Recced because: Fascinating and creepy, with a deliciously wicked twist at the end.
[identity profile] irishvampire13.livejournal.com
Story: No Will But My Will
Author: Astrogirl
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 511
Author's Summary: Who needs empathy when you have mind control?
Characters/Pairings: The Master (Delgado version)
Warnings: None

Recced because: To be perfectly frank, the Master fascinates me. This is a scary and gorgeous look into his mind that only serves to increase that fascination. Again, I have to point out that this is a version I have yet to see...but, just as before, unfamiliarity does not reduce the chilling, raw power behind the story.
[identity profile] irishvampire13.livejournal.com
Story: He Laughs
Author: LilacFree
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 106
Author's Summary: This is nearly a poem, I think, and is a look at the Ainley Master on his debut in 'Logopolis'.
Characters/Pairings: Tegan Jovanka, Fourth Doctor, the Master (Ainley version)
Warnings: None

Recced because: Because I was just going through my Favorites on Teaspoon tonight, glancing at some new gems I added to my list last night/early this morning, and rediscovered this beauty. And I was profoundly relieved to see that no one else has recced it yet.

Anyway. I've recently begun familiarizing myself with Ainley's version of the Master, and my friends will readily attest to how quickly I've become hooked on him. This is a brief, and incredibly chilling, glimpse of him during one of my favorite episodes. For anyone who doesn't happen to know this version of the character yet...well, this pretty much sums him up!
[identity profile] irishvampire13.livejournal.com
Story: A Goblin or a Trickster or a Warrior
Author: Awdures
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 1,336
Author's Summary: "There was a goblin, or a trickster or a warrior. A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos." That's not the real start of the story of course. This is the rest of the fairytale.
Characters/Pairings: None
Warnings: None

Recced because: I found this to be quite fascinating, in the most chilling way. I...really can't think of any more to say; it's just...scary and amazing, and you will not be disappointed.
[identity profile] irishvampire13.livejournal.com
Story: Hugging
Author: auaruf
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 46
Author's Summary: Sometimes he thinks about who he is now.
Characters/Pairings: Twelfth Doctor; implied Twelve/Rose
Warnings: None

Recced because: It's a lovely (and all too brief) pondering of the true reason why Twelve doesn't do hugging. As the shortest of my recs here, this story is also excellent proof of exactly how emotionally effective a scant handful of words can be. There are no more words here than are absolutely necessary to stir up a heart(s)-wrenching, beautifully angsty picture.
[identity profile] irishvampire13.livejournal.com
Story: Say Goodbye
Author: Coryx
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 1,415
Author's Summary: The Doctor meets the TARDIS for the first time.
Characters/Pairings: The Doctor (Academy Era), the TARDIS
Warnings: None

Recced because: It's beautiful and sweet, with all the sense of adventures yet to come. Also, this is the only work Coryx has, according to their profile. And that's a shame, because I see talent here, talent which should not go to waste! I hope that, if at all possible, we can locate this writer and persuade him/her to return to Teaspoon and show us more of what they're capable of.
[identity profile] irishvampire13.livejournal.com
Story: A Conversation
Author: Dancingsalome
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 655
Author's Summary: River Song gets a visit in the Stormcage Containment Facility.
Characters/Pairings: River Song, The Master (Delgado version)
Warnings: None

Recced because: A delightful combination of cute, sexy, and funny, and a great mingling of the Classic and Modern series. It's one of those things that Should Have Happened, if only it were possible. I personally haven't yet seen Delgado's version of the Master, but I don't think that takes away even slightly from the fun of this fic. :)
[identity profile] irishvampire13.livejournal.com
*pokes my head in* Well, well. It's after midnight here in California, so it looks like I'm up...

*waves nervously* Hi. I'm [livejournal.com profile] irishvampire13 (Irish for short, if you prefer). Not new to the community, but new to reccing, so I may not know what I'm doing. Please forgive any errors. ^.^ ♥

So. Let's get down to it, shall we? Here goes! Here's hoping that I'm doing this right...

Story: A Very Bad God
Author: wmr
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 3,947
Author's Summary: "One event you wish hadn't happened, and it's undone. Just like that."
Characters/Pairings: Tenth Doctor, Jack Harkness
Warnings: None

Recced because: It's very much Doctor Who meets 'It's a Wonderful Life'. Scary, angsty, and wonderfully written. I thought it was fascinating and powerful; hopefully, you'll like it as much as I did!
