Story: Getting Out
Author: melissa_228
Rating: Adult
Word Count: 1,330
Author's Summary: The human Doctor and Rose are forced to face the inevitable in their relationship.
Characters/Pairings: The Doctor (Duplicate 10th), Rose Tyler
Warnings: Swearing, Explicit Sex

Recced because: This is a positively brilliant interpretation of what the dup!Doc and Rose's life might've ended up. There are too many sappy stories out there, I like to see a little pain and a little realism thrown in. Both are blended into this beautifully, while the characters behave believably. I love this.

Story: If You Just Smile
Author: By Romana Dante
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 2,104
Author's Summary: All Martha wanted was a coffee, but the Doctor had something else in mind. Martha makes him talk, and somewhere a world burns. Set anywhere in series three.
Characters/Pairings: Martha Jones, The Doctor (10th)
Warnings: None

Recced because: I'll admit I'm a fan of Martha and Ten's complicated relationship, so this one caught my eye quickly. It's special to me because it has the right blend of tension and angst to feel RIGHT for Martha and Ten, even as it doesn't push past the bounds of UST. The characterizations are perfect and this is a fantastic story.

Story: Out of Reach
Author: by schildkroet
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 610
Author's Summary: Jamie tries to remember.
Characters/Pairings: James McCrimmon, The Doctor (2nd)
Warnings: You may cry.

Recced because: Despite its brevity, this story will stick with you long after you've read it. I read it first right after Journey's End, and the parallels to Donna's ending made me get pretty disgustingly emotional. Jamie's voice is wonderful (and isn't clogged up with unnecessary accenting) and the brief story flows beautifully. I really like this story.

Story: After All Right
Author: WishingWillow
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 1,079
Author's Summary: Just what happened to Reinette in those first hours that it became clear the Doctor would not return?
Characters/Pairings: Madame de Pompadour/The Tenth Doctor
Warnings: None

Recced Because: This author is one of the best on Teaspoon. Reinette fic is not often praised in favor of Ten/Rose fic, but this is one of THOSE fics, the ones that stick with you for hours and hours after you've read them. The language is so fluid, the narration so perfectly in-character. I swear I felt chills after reading this. It's still one of my favorites.

Story: More Than An Echo series
Author: Samfeasor
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: Each story is between 400-1,000 words, and there are 12 stories
Author's Summary: The continuing adventures of the Doctor's daughter. A creature of first experiences, she is growing and learning exponentially, traveling the universe in the year 6012 (New Byzantine Calendar) and trying to lead the kind of life that would make her father proud: an exemplary one. These stories take place, to the best of my ability, in "chronological" order, as Jenny ages and learns from day to day.
Characters/Pairings: Jenny, River Song
Warnings: None

Recced because: This is one of the best Jenny writers out there, period. I have to say I didn't like Jenny's character at all post-episode and was reluctant to read any sort of fic with her, but this series caught my eye and has kept me reading ever since. Jenny is multi-dimensional, fun, naieve but completely identifiable. It feels like the reader is along for the trip! The little addition of River Song as a guide just makes the ride that much more fun!

Story: Ricky Smith
Author: rallalon
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 1,638
Author's Summary: It's not far off, not really. It's just a name, after all. It's just a name that's not his.
Characters/Pairings: Mickey Smith, Jake Simmonds, Jake/Mickey
Warnings: Sexual situations and swearing

Recced because: This is one of my all-time favorite stories of "Whatever Happened To Mickey Smith?" The author utilizes all the things people generally take for granted about their identity, even as simple as carving one's name into the side of a post, creating a wonderfully twisted situation for Mickey. I love the characterization of him in this as well, it feels right without feeling repetitive.
