Story: Bright Flows the River
Author: samfeasor
Rating: All ages
Author's Summary: Jenny has discovered religion, and debriefs her friend over tea.
Characters/Pairings: Jenny
Warnings: None
Word Count: 809

Recced because: This author has Jenny's voice down pat (and if you like Jenny, read her other fics) She's managed to blend the innocence of someone only a few months old with the experience of someone who is part Time Lord and all soldier and come up with these wonderful ideas of what Jenny traveling the universe looks like. In this one she has tea with a friend and tries to figure out what religion is and what the soul means.

Story: Uneven Steps
Author: Settiai
Rating: All ages
Author's Summary: Severus Snape never knew when or where he would see the Doctor next. (Crossover with "Harry Potter.").
Characters/Pairings: Adric, Erimem, Nyssa, Peri Brown, Tegan Jovanka, The Fifth Doctor, Turlough, (Snape, Lily, and Dumbledore from HP)
Warnings: Spoilers for all HP books
Word Count: 5,098

Recced because: The first time I read this story I was blown away by the brilliance of it. Snape meets the Fifth Doctor for the first time when he's nine years old, but that's not the first time the Doctor's met him. The Doctor's appearance is woven in through Snape's life, always at times that end up being important in some way.

Story: The Slow Path
Author: atraphoenix
Rating: All ages
Author's Summary: Susan Foreman takes the slow path.
Characters/Pairings: Susan Foreman, Liz Shaw, Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart, Donna Noble, Harry Sullivan, Ianto Jones, Jack Harkness, Jo Grant, John Benton, Martha Jones, Sarah Jane Smith, the Tenth Doctor (Liz/Brig, mentions of Susan/David)
Warnings: None
Word Count: 3,306

Recced because: The story of Susan, living her life on 'the slow path' is elegantly woven into the Doctor's history. It's brilliant seeing how she interacts with many of the same people her grandfather did, just a step out of time with him.

Story: Verity
Author: whispersecho
Rating: None given (Gen)
Author's Summary: Inspired by and shamelessly filking bits from Paul Cornell's NA Human Nature... also contains spoilers for Love and War and Sanctuary. Right...I think it's really finished this time.
Characters/Pairings: Seventh Doctor, Ace McShane, Benny Summerfield, (Seven/Ace)
Warnings: None
Word Count: 8,419

Recced because: The story of the Doctor becoming John Smith and falling in love with Joan Redfern originally belonged to the Seventh Doctor, and included his companion Benny. Whisperecho brilliantly takes the original story and adds back what is missing - Ace. Ace shows up at the school, not knowing the the Doctor has used the arch to turn human. John Smith doesn't know Ace, but his psyche has incorporated her memory into his past in a very interesting (and telling) way. Lovely and true to character. Though it references a couple of the books you don't have to know them - just that at some point Ace left Seven to travel on her own, and misses him.

Story: Requiem for a Companion
Author: rickmaniac101
Rating: None given (Gen)
Author's Summary: Each of the Doctors attend the funeral of a very dear departed friend.
Characters/Pairings: First Doctor, Second Doctor, Third Doctor, Fourth Doctor, Fifth Doctor, Sixth Doctor, Seventh Doctor, Eighth Doctor, Ninth Doctor, Tenth Doctor, Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart, Romana II, Susan Foreman
Warnings: Character Death
Word Count: 1,586

Recced because: I adore all of MJ's fics, and would rec any of them, but there is something special about this one. I keep coming back to it, reading it over and over again, savoring lines and paragraphs (there's one, about Doctors' Five through Nine, that is just amazing.) Not only is this a brilliant tribute to one of my favorite companions, but she captures the characters of all ten Doctors perfectly.
