Author's Summary: She's doing this to him because she loves him - well, some other version of him. The one in the real world - but she's doing this because she loves him. Really. Really, really. He'll understand soon. Just not right now. But he'll understand. Eventually, Rose Tyler will make him understand everything, even this. darkfic
Characters/Pairings: Ten/Rose…or not. Pete’s World!Jack comes into it as well.
Warnings: Non-con, violence, disturbingness
Recced because: I’m frankly stunned this story hasn’t been recced here before. The Rose it presents is very, very different to the Rose we know, but just similar enough to send shivers up your spine. This story is incredibly dark but the way it plays out, and the sheer quality of the writing, is all so entrancing that you can’t look away. Without spoiling anything, the end is so, so powerful and triumphant and sad. In short, this is one devastating, chilling and utterly disturbing fic, it’s incredibly well written, and it is worth your time.

That would be my final rec for this week. I hope you’ve enjoyed the fics! :)

Story: Choose Wisely
Author: Aiffe
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 1295
Author's Summary: Alternate ending to The Beast Below. What if Amy had been mistaken?
Characters/Pairings: Amy Pond, The Doctor (11th)
Warnings: None
Recced because: This fic presents a stark contrast to the previous rec. Like ‘Nothing to Worry About’, it’s set just after The Beast Below. However, in this fic, things turned out differently. What if Amy had been mistaken? What then? And if we're still going by the "Star Whale = Doctor, dammit!' analogy, then what would that say about the Doctor himself? This fic is grim, wonderfully written and well worth your time.

Story: Nothing to Worry About
Author:  chinesebakery
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 1404
Author's Summary:  Following the Star Whale debacle, Amy let her insecurities take over. But only for a little while.
Characters/Pairings: Gen, really, but Eleven/Amy if anything.
Warnings: none
Recced because: This is a lovely piece of post-5-2 fic that addresses the Doctor’s 'outburst' during the climax of that episode in a way that isn’t wangsty or overdramatic. Amy’s feelings regarding the whole Beast Below deal are written very well– after all, what would it be like to discover that your Raggedy Doctor, your wonderful imaginary friend and your childhood hero who came back for you after all those years, had a temper and made mistakes? It’s funny, sweet and a great interlude between 5-2 and 5-3.

Hello - I'm Starling-Night over at Teaspoon, and I'll be reccing a few fics for you this  week :) I like scary New Series oneshots, so let's start off with one of those.

Story: This is Martha Jones
Author: Siani
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 99
Author's Summary: **Spoilers for The End of Time pt 1** The first time she had the dream, she called him.
Characters/Pairings: Martha Jones
Warnings: none
Recced because: Short as it may be, this fic packs one hell of a punch, and takes full advantage of that little bit of Fridge Horror we all got from the Master Plan in EoT. Like many of us I found that particular bit quite comical, but this? Not so. Prepare to be creeped out by just 99 words.
