And we come to the end of my rec week! I had an epic blast, so I leave you with an epic crack!fic XD I hope you guys enjoyed the fics this week - they are all gems imo! =D

Story: There Was a Master in a Game
Author: Azriona
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 66712
Author's Summary: Gallifrey wasn’t entirely lost when it went back into the Time Lock; it just got stuck. The Master wants out. Isn’t he lucky that the Doctor left him a way?
Characters/Pairings: K-9, Lynda Moss, Sally Sparrow, The Master (Simm), Romana, OCs
Warnings: none

Recced because: I'll be honest and say that I wasn't initially planning on reading this fic when it came out. It didn't have any pairings I recognize or fangirl, and I'm not really into The Master fics, so I was gonna take a pass. Then, my Friend List literally exploded with praise for this fic, so I decided to read it and see what all the fuss was about. SO GLAD I DID!! It is an incredibly funny, ingenious account of the Master post-End of Time. We know and love him as an evil crazy guy ... but, between the crack!tastically funny dialogue, this fic has mystery (what is the point of the game?) and even character development, which is a rare feat for a crack!fic to pull off so beautifully and believably!! I read it the whole thing in one sitting 2 days before a big midterm - that is how much I liked it!! I hope you enjoy it as well! =D

Story: But What That Place Could Be
Author: Yamx
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 4310
Author's Summary: On Jack’s first morning onboard the TARDIS, he and the Doctor have a serious disagreement with an unexpected outcome.
Characters/Pairings: Nine, Jack, Rose
Warnings: none

Recced because: Following the emotionally riveting Father's Day, we have The Empty Child/The Doctor Dances, where Nine and Jack meet and don't like or trust each other very much. Right on the heels of that, we have Boomtown, where Nine and Jack seem like incredibly good friends. There's quite a canonical gap there!! This wonderful canon-consistent fic ties all four of these episodes together in a wonderful package. This fic gave me everything I never knew I wanted in terms of context for Nine and Jack's friendship, and is a VERY insightful reevaluation of Father's Day, to boot! This wonderful story makes the close bond we see in late s1 make more sense, and it provides some good character development for both of them. I highly recommend this fic - especially to any fan of s1, any Jack fan, and anyone who counts Father's Day among their favorite episodes.

Story: The Next Day
Author: Karenbee
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 3053
Author's Summary: Words didn't seem large enough to express what they were feeling.
Characters/Pairings: TenToo/Rose, Jackie Tyler
Warnings: none

Recced because: (How many post-Journey's End Pete's World fics d'ya think there are? Hundreds? A thousand? Anyway I digress ...) This ranks among my favorite post-JE fics. It's sweet, emotional and while TenToo of course is certainly more openly vulnerable, he retains a hint of Time Lord stoicism in this fic. That's something a lot of writers don't do, often TenToo is written like a normal guy or some slightly geeky guy or an angstmuffin ... this fic remembers that underneath it all lurks a 900+ year old Time Lord. It's that extra infusion of circumspect characterization for him that separates this fic from many other post-JE fics.

Story: Playing Dress Up
Author: ProfessorSpork
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 2726
Author's Summary: Amy, Rory, and the disguises we all wear.
Characters/Pairings: Amy, Rory
Warnings: mentions of attempted suicide

Recced because: I confess -- I really dislike canon!Amy as we met her in s5. However, this lovely, thoughtful character study on Amy/Rory made me like her and go back and REEVALUATE my interpretation of canon. I never do that!! I love fic that makes me pause, think, and change my mind. This story is beautifully written, and I highly recommend it both to those who already love Amy, those who don't, and to those who want some beautifully canon-consistent characterization of her and her relationship with Rory.

Story: Past Present Resolutions
Author: Queen of the Castle
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 2641
Author's Summary: It’s not quite a coincidence when the Doctor runs into Jack in a time and place where he shouldn’t be. The Doctor only wishes it was.
Characters/Pairings: Jack Harkness, Ten
Warnings: None

Recced because: Two reasons!! =) Either one of these would make this interesting, memorable fic deserving of a rec.

1) Remember in Torchwood Children of Earth Day 5, how Gwen says something about how she thinks the Doctor didn't come because he's ashamed of humans? This is a very different take on his reason for not coming. I haven't seen this explanation before - it's fascinating!

2) This fic is truly a touching meta on the push-pull nature of Ten and Jack's friendship, which seems destined to never have the same closeness as Nine and Jack's friendship back in the trusting, innocent days of s1.

Story: That Night on Betazorn 9
Author: ThroughanAmberFocus
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 820
Author's Summary: A blonde, a brunette, and a redhead walk into an intergalactic space bar on Betazorn 9. And when they leave, the bar is on fire.
Characters/Pairings: Ten, Donna, Rose
Warnings: None

Recced because: This is my favorite crack!fic of all time. If I'm having a bad day and need something to cheer me up asap, I read this and it makes me smile in a pinch. I've lost count of the number of times I have read this short, wonderful little AU fic - it never ever ever stops being funny and making me giggle out loud =) The narration is spot-on in the voice of Ten, and the story is just .... XD .... I love it. Love it! And I think you guys will love it too =)

Hello all! I am kilodalton, a rather new Who fan (and a rather New!Who fan XD) who will be recc'ing for you this week! I've become a huge fanfic afficionado and am really looking forward to being able to share some of my favorite fics with you =)

Story: If You Want My Future
Author: Pirate Perian
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 1947
Author's Summary: After the events of "The Girl in the Fireplace," Rose has a question for the Doctor.
Characters/Pairings: Ten, Rose, Mickey
Warnings: None

Recced because: I rec this fic to e v e r y o n e. Even people who hate fanfic (like my husband). And I have yet to find one person who doesn't think it's seriously fab =) I think I have read just about every post-Girl in the Fireplace fic out there. This one is not only my favorite of the bunch - it is so inspired, it is one of my top favorite fics period. There is a huge, jarring (imo) change in mood between the somber end of Girl in the Fireplace and the giggly, cuddly beginning of the next episode, Rise of the Cybermen. Many fics have attempted to fill in the blank here - but none has been so true to the characters of Ten and Rose, their particular kind of friendship, and the evolving dynamic in their relationship. This fic is poignant yet fluffy, and has entered the realm of personal canon for me. Enjoy =)
