Story: Girls' Night Out, Girls' Night In
Author: Lurky McLurklurk
Rating: Adult
Word count: 2634
Author's summary: Martha and Donna get to know each other better. Set in the closing section of The Poison Sky
Characters/pairings: Martha/Donna, Tenth Doctor
Warnings: None

Recced because: Well, this is another pairing that I simply can't get enough of at the moment and I was delighted when I saw this posted one day. This story is deliciously hot. End of. However, I have to say that the last section is my favourite: the 'morning after scene' that gets left out of so many fics that just concentrate on 'the night before'. Oh, and as for the ending, well, I don't want to spoil it but fans of the Third Doctor era will love the ending. ;)

Story: Wanderers in the Fourth Dimension, or How Jack Got to be So Emo
Author: Dr Miracle
Rating: All ages
Word count: 1443
Author's summary: One gets the impression that Torchwood!Jack fell through through the Cardiff rift from the Gamestation Era to the early twentieth century, and has been looking for the Doctor ever since. Thing is, he's had numerous opportunities to catch up with all the Doctor's previous incarnations. This story explains why the poor man is still languishing in Cardiff...
Characters/pairings: Captain Jack, 1st Doctor, 2nd Doctor, 3rd Doctor, 4th Doctor, 5th Doctor, 6th Doctor, 7th Doctor, 8th Doctor
Warnings: None

Recced because: It's my personal fanon that Jack met at least one version of the Doctor before he caught up with Ten in Cardiff, probably a bit different to this, admitedly, but it didn't stop me from finding this very funny. Also, I couldn't go a week and not rec crack fic when it is my most favourite type of fic. This is short, sharp and funny which makes it pretty perfect, in my opinion. Each Doctor is spot as well.

Story: She'll Be Superb
Author: livii
Rating: All ages
Word count: 1673
Author's summary: Romana's improved upon the Doctor's technique by quite a bit.
Characters/pairings: Romana II/Tegan, Romana II/Rose, Romana II/Ace, Romana II/Jo, Romana II/Zoe, 9th Doctor, Romana I
Warnings: None

Recced because: It's a story about a Time Lord travelling the universe in their TARDIS picking up human women. Sounds familiar, doesn't it? Only it's not the Doctor it's Romana. Livii's Romana is fun, very Time Lord-y (yes, that's a word) and just great to read. Plus we see little snippets of what life is like travelling with some of the Doctor's other wonderful companions, not forgetting herself. Multi-era stories are my absolute favourite, and this is a great example of why I love them.

Story: Singing Each to Each
Author: Versaphile
Rating: Adult
Word count: 4770
Author's summary: The Master needs, the Doctor submits, the TARDIS is patient.
Characters/pairings: Tenth Doctor/Simm!Master/TARDIS
Warnings: Graphic violence, graphic sex. Look, it's just graphic, okay.

Recced because: I wasn't sure about reccing this for a long time because, well, it's dark, like, really dark. But it also made me cry and cry so I thought that it deserved a mention. I can't stress how dark this fic is enough, so IT'S DARK. There's not a lot I can say about this because every time I read it, it still leaves me gobsmacked. So, I'm going to give you a little quote which will hopefully give you an idea as to just how dark this gets.

Mutual regeneration. Two Time Lords bonded to each other forever, their regenerations forever entwined, their bio-data a helix of six instead of three. An abomination, forbidden forever.

Like everything on Gallifrey, there was even a formal name for it. It was called The First Kiss.

So, yes, you've got that it's dark now. Good. But I hope that doesn't put people off because it is such a wonderful read. It shows just how deep and involved their relationship is, and whilst I enjoy the more humourous fics for this pairing also, I do like endulging myself in something more from time to time.

Story: Velleity
Author: Jonquil and Vali
Rating: Adult
Word count: 5432
Author's summary: Theta and Koschei reap the benefits of complete miscommunication.
Characters/pairings: Theta/Koschei
Warnings: Graphic sex

Recced because: This is labelled as PWP, but there's a lot more to it than that; it's certainly the most in depth PWP I've read in a long while, and it has the most fantastic dialogue, and yet it has the most simple premise: Theta and Koschei are studying, then they have sex, then they go back to studying. It's simple yet perfect. And the sex? Well, it's just so in character with Theta so eager to please in any way he can.

Story: Happiness and Satisfaction
Author: Netgirl_y2k
Rating: All ages
Word count: 1633
Author's summary: 'Martha, I'm from another universe, would you like to go for a drink?'
Characters/pairings: Rose/Martha, Jackie Tyler, Romana II
Warnings: None

Recced because: Well, I'm slightly biased as this was written for me as part of the ficathon on [livejournal.com profile] rose_lives, but meh, it's wondeful and deserves to be recced. Netgirl_y2k manages to get Rose's voice just perfect and there's not a lot of authors who can do that, in my opinion. In fact, there's a wonderful exchange between Jackie and Rose in the beginning which I can visualise so perfectly. It also shows both Rose and Martha saving the universe and being generally rather awesome as well as dealing with the sometimes awkward first stages of a relationship. I am rather in love with this ship, so even if they don't ever meet, I'm happy because I'll have fics like this to read.

Story: OTP Forever
Author: bytheseaside
Rating: Adult
Author's Summary: Revenge is sweet femslash.
Characters/Pairings: Tenth Doctor/Martha Jones, Martha Jones/Rose Tyler, Tenth Doctor/TARDIS
Warnings: None

Recced because: Because you can't beat good crack!fic, that's why. Also, I am of the opinion that this fandom is in desperate need of more femslash; especially with this pairing. The author manages to highlight the fact that the Doctor continues to talk about Rose after she's gone, despite being written before Series 3 aired. All in all; a very funny story. Plus, any fic that features Doctor/TARDIS can't be bad.

Story: Five Times After Goodbye
Author: Camilla Sandman
Rating: Teen
Author's Summary: Twenty years after she said one goodbye, she wonders if this is a second.
Characters/pairings: Tenth Doctor/Martha Jones
Warnings: None

Recced because: Because I love the idea of the Doctor visiting any companion after they've left him. In this particular story, he visits them whilst they're still on board but because he knows he's going to lose them at one point, he still visits to make sure they're all right. However, I think he's visting them more for his sake then for their's. The concept of this fic, in my opinion, could work with most companions which is what makes it so special. I especially love the ending to this one and how it brings it right back to their first meeting.

Story: Ulysses
Author: Rheanna
Author's Summary: "I have become a name."
Characters/Pairings: John Smith
Warnings: None

Recced because: It's funny; any story that I usually rec, I've read countless times. I've read this twice; once when it was posted and once just now. The reason for this is, quite simply; it broke me.

Set around 40 years after Human Nature/Family of Blood, the Doctor pays John Smith a visit. Yes, you read that right. I love how it focuses on the choices these two people made back at Farringham and how their lives have changed.

There are no warnings from the author, but I'll warn you now; you may need tissues.

Story: Southend, July 26th, 1976
Author: Kate
Author's Summary: "He first saw the Doctor when he was 12."
Characters/Pairings: Ninth Doctor, Clive
Warnings: None

Recced because: This was one of the first stories I came across on Teaspoon a few years ago, back when I was a lurker on the site. Watching 'Rose' as a newcomer to Who, I loved the character of Clive who was obsessed with the Doctor and knew all about him. This lovely little story tells us just how Clive came to be so obsessed. For me, it takes me back to that excitement I felt when 'Rose' first aired. Also has a nice little bit of 'timey-wimey' stuff. Sort of.

Story: Thirteen Steps
Author: nonelvis
Rating: Teen
Author's Summary: A man is defined by his relationships as much as his actions. Thirteen 100-word drabbles, one for each Doctor.
Characters/Pairings: First Doctor, Second Doctor, Third Doctor, Fourth Doctor, Fifth Doctor, Sixth Doctor, Seventh Doctor, Eighth Doctor, Ninth Doctor, Tenth Doctor, Eleventh Doctor, Twelth Doctor, Thirteenth Doctor, TARDIS, Jamie McCrimmon, Liz Shaw, Romana (I and II), Tegan Jovanka, Peri Brown, Jabe, Rose Tyler, Martha Jones, Captain Jack
Warnings: None

Recced because: "A man is defined by this relationships." Yep; couldn't agree more. Therefore, I subscribe to the belief that the Doctor is defined by his companions. This one will definitely be popular with fans of the comm [livejournal.com profile] loves_them_all, because this fic shows that he does. He really does.

Story: Dreaming In Metaphors
Author: Yahtzee
Rating: Teen
Author's Summary: The Master's Paradox Machine proves to have been a bad influence on the TARDIS, and the Doctor is certain that Martha is the only one who can help him set his ship to rights.
Characters/Pairings: Tenth Doctor/Martha Jones
Warnings: None

Recced because: Because it completely caught me by surprise, that's why. Martha goes back to the Doctor and it starts a little too mushy for my liking but, well, you'll see if you read (which you totally should, yes), the ending is excellent. The pace and dialogue is just perfect and the settings that the Doctor and Martha find themselves in are brilliant.

Author: AstroGirl
Rating: Adult
Author's Summary: The Doctor and the Master in a psychological power play, with smut.
Characters/Pairings: Tenth Doctor/Simm!Master
Warnings: Slash, BDSM, Graphic Sex
Recced because: This was one of the first Ten/Master fics that I read and I absolutely fell in love with it. It's a pretty accurate take on their extremely complicated relationship.

With sex.
