Story: And the Beat... 
Author: seren ccd
Rating: R
Word Count: 3350
Author's Summary: This is the story of when John met Amy.
Characters/Pairings: Amelia Pond/The Doctor (11th)
Warnings: None

Recced because:
I love the Eleventh Doctor, and I love Amy Pond. And I especially love them in this.  This story reads beautifully, and the characters stay in form throughout despite the fact they are, shall we say, not quiet themselves for the majority of the fic. And though it's end is a little painful, I really can't see this Doctor doing anything else, and it's part of what makes this story so worth the read.

Story: Nowhere Series 1: Reunions
Author: warinbabylon
Rating: G
Word Count: 7933
Author's Summary: A Moroccan Beach is an excellent place for a reunion.
Characters/pairings: Tegan Jovanka, The Doctor (5th) 
Warnings: None

Recced because:
I'm recommending this story because it, and the series it belongs to, have been a guilty pleasure of mine for quite some time. Back in the day, before new who existed, the 5th Doctor was my Doctor, and Tegan was my favourite companion. This story stood out to me at the time, not only because it was well written, but also because warinbabylon managed to keep both Tegan and the Doctor in character, despite the way they parted and the years that had passed for them both. Also, I have a soft spot for well written kid!fic, and this is just perfect. I would highly recommend reading the rest of the series if you like this story. This story is essentially pairing free, however the series as a whole is Tegan/Doctor.

Story: Be Still, My Beating Heart
Author: Elliptic Eye
Rating: G
Word Count: 863
Author's Summary: Judoon, hospitals on the moon, bendy straws of evil--all very well. But how did the Doctor get that double-heartbeat past all those, er, doctors?
Characters/pairings: Martha Jones, The Doctor (10th)
Warnings: None

Recced because:
Martha is a character I like far more in fanfiction than out of it (if I am to be absolutely honest). However I do admit that there were many ways in which she was mistreated by the Doctor and by her circumstances. I like this story because though the tone is light, and even joking, it manages to convey a Doctor who is capricious and a little whimsical in his choice of Martha, putting some of the onus for her misery on him from the beginning. While also leaving room for Martha as a strong, intelligent woman. 

Also: it's fun... )

 Hi! I will be your reccer for this week, and I'd like to offer you some treasures, both old and new. I should warn you that I love the eleventh Doctor, and have always been one to ship current!Doctor/current!Companion, so do expect some Eleven/Amy. However my love of the new does not stop me loving the old, so expect to see some Classic Who as well. 

Story: hung aloft the night
Author: saywheeeee
Rating: pg-13
Word Count: 1603
Author's Summary: The Doctor marries Amy.
Characters/Pairings: Eleven/Amy
Warnings: None.

Recced because:
Reading this is like listening to an incredibly uplifting and joyful song. It moves eloquently from one moment to the next and manages to just be happy. Saywheeeee has captured the characters perfectly and uses them beautifully. This story is the fourth part in a larger series, and the author recommends that you read the others first. However I think this stands very well by itself, though of course I urge you to read the others as well.
