Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 5302
Author's Summary: River and the Doctor are on the trail of the Krampus.
Characters/Pairings: Eleventh Doctor/River Song, Other Characters
Warnings: None

Recced because: For my last rec, I wanted to rec something in the spirit of Christmas and this year's Christmas special, "The Husbands of River Song." I decided upon this fic, told from a viewpoint of a woman who overhears the Doctor and River arguing about capturing something. The woman later finds out the creature the Doctor and River are hunting is targeting her son. The story moves quickly and has equal parts action, suspense, and comedic squabbling between the Doctor and River.

Characters/Pairings: Fifth Doctor/Vislor Turlough, Tegan Jovanka (mentions Jamie McCrimmon)

Author's Summary: Every minute since he left had been a fight, a fight to not turn around and run back to her.
Characters/Pairings: Eleventh Doctor, Amy Pond/Rory Williams
Warnings: None

Recced because: This angsty piece, about the Doctor trying and failing to travel without Amy, tugs at my heartstrings. The imagery in this fic is, in my opinion, well crafted, and the writing feels poetic to me.

Author's Summary: When Romana comes back from E-Space to a universe where she never regenerated, the consequences expand exponentially, for the universe and herself.
Characters/Pairings: Romana I/Romana II, K-9
Warnings: Explicit Sex

Recced because: Reccer's Notes: I consider this fic to be the cleverest selfcest fic I've ever read in Who fandom. In this fic, the Romana II of canon, the one who left the (Fourth) Doctor to do work in E-Space, leaves E-Space for Gallifrey, only to find this Romana I in this fanfic, one that never regenerated and stayed on Gallifrey.

Author's Summary: It should've been her.
Characters/Pairings: Alice Carter/Jenny ("The Doctor's Daughter")
Warnings: None

Recced because: Alice and Jenny are a small rarepair, but they have a few fans, and every fic I've ever read with them seems plausible because of how abrupt their endings were in their shows (Torchwood: Children of Earth and "The Doctor's Daughter" episode of Doctor Who). They're also one of the few Whoniverse pairings I don't mind looking for babyfic for, in part because F/F babyfic in general is so rare to find. Here, Alice is tormented with thoughts about not being the surrogate mother for a princess as well as thoughts about losing her son. Jenny is there to ease Alice's pain. I love their interactions here--everything between these two makes me smile.

Characters/Pairings: Clara Oswin Oswald/Missy
Warnings: Non-Con

Recced because: Yes, this fic is short. But this fic was the first Clara/Missy fic I liked. I felt their dynamic in this fic was similar to their dynamic in canon, and I could see this as a missing scene that could have taken place before "The Bells of Saint John."

Hello again! I'm here to rec all the way up to Christmas and the Christmas special, so let's go! I wanted to rec this fic the last time I recced here, but I hit my maximum number of recs. Here it is now:

Story: Venusian Aikido and Associated Disciplines
Author: Sproid

Word Count: 1631
Author's Summary: Featuring Benton learning fancy karate from the Doctor, and an annoyed Brigadier who keeps walking in on them with their hands all over each other.
Characters/Pairings: Third Doctor/John Benton, Alistair Gordon Lethbridge-Stewart/John Benton/Third Doctor, Alistair Gordon Lethbridge-Stewart/John Benton, Corporal Bell/Jo Grant, John Benton/Mike Yates
Warnings: Explicit Sex

Recced because: I love the interactions between Three and the UNIT crew featured here. I also like how the fic features Three's signature* Venusian aikido and shows him teaching it to others, not against the Villain of a Serial. And a jealous Brig tickles my id.

Venusian aikido is mostly featured in Three's serials, but other Doctors have used it in expanded material

Story: An Unearthly Child- Jane Austen Style!
Author: Meadowlark
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 2779
Author's Summary: Ever wondered what it would have been like if Jane Austen had written for Doctor Who? Possibly it would have been something like this- here's the very first episode, re-written in the style of a Jane Austen novel.
Characters/Pairings: Barbara Wright/Ian Chesterton, Susan Foreman, First Doctor
Warnings: no standard warnings apply

Recced because: I recently saw this spot-on Austen parody of the opening scenes in "An Unearthy Child" and fell in love with it on the spot. I think it's a brilliantly executed cracky idea, and something I wouldn't mind seeing in more fanfic.

Author's Summary: Amelia Pond wants her Doctor back, so she tries to lure him with food.
Characters/Pairings: Amy Pond, Eleventh Doctor
Warnings: no standard warnings apply

Recced because: This ficlet was written before "The Angels Take Manhattan," so it doesn't reference the end of that episode. I adore how Amy is portrayed here, confused and hurt that her Raggedy Man seemingly broke his promise to her, and how she'll do anything to get him back.

Recced because: This is haveloved's interpretation of what Woman Wept might've been.

Author's Summary: Case-file. The Doctor has left UNIT…but life goes on without him and so do extra-terrestrial incursions. When mysterious fissures appear and unidentified aliens attack, Liz Shaw finds herself drawn back to UNIT after an absence of several years, while a newly returned Sarah Jane Smith is wondering what the future holds for her, now that her dearest friend has left her behind.
Characters/Pairings: Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart, Harry Sullivan, Liz Shaw, Sarah Jane Smith, Sergeant Benton, UNIT
Warnings: no standard warnings apply

Recced because: After the Doctor leaves UNIT, several of his former companions and colleagues investigate a mysterious alien. I'm not usually someone who likes reading longer fics, and especially chaptered works (especially when those chaptered works are abandoned without a conclusion). I remember seeing this years back on [livejournal.com profile] who_daily and falling in love with it after the fic was completed. I find the mystery in this fic compelling. I couldn't stop reading this one, and I'm glad I did!

Recced because: I tried not reccing this fic, but I like it too damn much to not rec it. This is [livejournal.com profile] nonelvis' take of what happened when the Doctor was three weeks late with Clara's coffee. Here, he intends to get coffee, but he's sidetracked by a younger River, still in uni and still getting into trouble. True to River's nature, this visit doesn't end on a chaste note.

Hi! I'm [livejournal.com profile] merryghoul. I'm also on Teaspoon as merryghoul (my work there was formerly under a different name). I'll be with you for the next two weeks as this comm's reccer.

For this reccing period, barring one exception, I really wanted to highlight people who haven't been recced before or have been recced less than a handful of times on this comm. Several of these works have been lingering in my fic bookmarks for years, and I'm just getting to rec them now. I blame myself for not reccing a lot of these fics earlier.

With that said, here's my first rec of the reccing period.

Recced because: What if Suzie's resurrection glove never lost its connection after Suzie's second death in "They Keep Killing Suzie?" And why is Gwen not resisting this connection at all? I've always liked this fic's take on what could've happened after "They Keep Killing Suzie" for years now, and I'm finally happy I can rec it for Calufrax today.

Characters/Pairings: Amy Pond/Rory Williams/The Doctor (11th)

Recced because: Rose and Gwen seem like the least likeliest of pairings. And yet this bittersweet fic, where Rose and Gwen communicate between Pete's World and the regular Doctor Who universe, makes this pairing work without forcing it in this fic.

Story: Master's Thesis
Author: helluin
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 42,530
Author's Summary: When Nyssa tries to return home with the cure to a deadly plague, the TARDIS overshoots and slips back into her past, the Doctor's future. Worse, the Master is already there, taking a sinister interest in her family. Hemmed in by potential time paradoxes, there's only one person to whom Nyssa can turn for help: her best friend Tegan.
Characters/Pairings: Nyssa, Other Character(s), Tegan Jovanka, The Doctor (5th), The Master (Ainley), Turlough
Warnings: Swearing

Recced because: This fic is based on the Big Finish arc where an older Nyssa joins Five, Tegan and Turlough for a spell in the TARDIS, but this can be read without any knowledge of the Big Finish audios. What I love about this fic is that it feels like a Big Finish audio or even an old serial with Five in it. There's action, witty quips and a paradox that needs to be fixed or else. I highly recommend this for Classic Who fans.

Characters/Pairings: Gwen Cooper, Ianto Jones, Jack Harkness, Owen Harper, Toshiko Sato
Warnings: no standard warnings apply

Recced because: The title pretty much explains what this fic's about, but this fic does a great job of explaining why Jack refused to have sex with his post-Suzie Costello team. Except for Ianto, of course.

Recced because: This story’s told from the POV of Keegan, a woman trapped in a dilapidated building and saved by the Ninth Doctor. Nine promises Keegan she can travel with her, but Keegan’s not sure if she’s hallucinating or not. Also, as the summary promises, marmalade.

I really like thebunnyinthetardis’ Nine—he reminds me of how I personally saw Nine, not continuously angsting against the Time War, but as a charming and personable Doctor, even if he was hiding his angst from Rose at first. The way Nine’s able to give hope to Keegan is inspiring as well.

Recced because: In this AU future!fic, Martha’s lost Mickey to a Cardiff Weevil during a Torchwood patrol. (This was also written before Torchwood: Miracle Day, so the story’s been Jossed a bit. But don’t let that stop you from reading this.) One day, she gets a special visitor.

Martha is my favorite companion from the Tenth Doctor era, and I find her reward at the end of this fic to be fitting and heartwarming for her character.
