Story: Family Tree
Author: MinervaFan
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 4750
Author's Summary: The Smith-Jackson-Langer-Townsend-Redfern Family Christmas will now commence.
Characters/Pairings: Alan Jackson, Chrissie Jackson, Maria Jackson, Clyde Langer, Natalie Redfern, Sarah Jane Smith, Joshua Townsend.
Warnings: Spoilers for all the Sarah Jane Smith audios.

Recced because: MinervaFan can always be relied on for a good story, and this is no exception: the warmth and affection between the characters practically springs off the page.  The focus of this story is family in all its forms - biological, adopted, chosen, and everything in between - and the emotions involved are nuanced and complex, from Sarah Jane's insecurity about getting Luke's first Christmas just right, to a snapshot of Alan and Chrissie's improving relationship.  All in all, a perfect Christmas fic.

Story: Long-Distance Phone Calls
Author: Settiai
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 3340
Author's Summary: One of these years, Fitz Kreiner was going to learn not to answer his phone.
Characters/Pairings: Alan Jackson, Fitz Kreiner, Maria Jackson, Sarah Jane Smith
Warnings: None.
Recced because: One of the first stories I recced in this community was Settiai's Rebuilding a Life, an epic NCIS crossover in which Fitz Kreiner was stranded in Washington and ended up in a relationship with one of the characters. This is a non-crossover sequel which doesn't draw on the NCIS background or characters; instead it has Fitz running into Maria Jackson and finally renewing contact with Sarah Jane Smith. A nice slightly angsty story, which also deals with some old-Who canon issues.

Author's Summary: Some time after she moves to America, Maria Jackson gets wrapped up in mysterious temporal events and Sarah Jane's past.
Characters/Pairings: Alan Jackson, Maria Jackson, Sarah Jane Smith, The Doctor (4th)
Warnings: None

Recced because: It's nice to see Maria in America and it's interesting and fun to see her with the Fourth Doctor. It's also a good plot and, since it's written for the girl saves boy ficathon, it's good to see Maria saving the world, with the Doctor helping.

Story: The Hitchhiker's Guide to Surviving a Dalek Invasion
Author: atraphoenix
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 1038
Author's Summary: Prostetnic Vogon Jeltz was having a very bad day. The planet he had been ordered to demolish appeared to have disappeared.
[A The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy crossover.]
Characters/Pairings: Alan Jackson, Maria Jackson, various Daleks, various characters from HG2G.
Warnings: None

Recced because: In the middle of the Dalek invasion of Journey's End/The Stolen Earth, Ford Prefect and Zaphod Beeblebrox concentrate on the important things, like another drink; Arthur isn't surprised; Marvin finds someone to talk to, and everyone fits right in. This perfectly captures the tone of the books and works so brilliantly that I'm convinced it was happening just off-screen. The native characters are written just as well, and I love Alan's observations on what his daughter has learned from Sarah Jane.

Story: Field Trip
Author: Biichan
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 790
Author's Summary: "Loch Ness is in Scotland,” said Luke. “I don't think we have time to get there and back and still get up for school tomorrow morning.”
Characters/Pairings: Alan Jackson, Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart, Clyde Langer, Luke Smith, Maria Jackson, Other Character(s), Other Character(s), Sarah Jane Smith, Sarah Jane Smith, UNIT
Warnings: None
Recced because: For my final choice I wanted my all-time favourite characters, the Third Doctor and Sarah Jane but made a mistake in the search and this popped out. And having read it I decided I could manage without the Doctor for the sake of the Loch Ness Monster, some excellent character studies, and another glimpse of the Brigadier.

Author: AND

Rating:
All Ages

Word Count:
13,980

Author's Summary:
Does Donna really need to remember her travels with the Doctor to unlock the confidence and strength she found on her travels with him? Doesn't that suggest that there's something wrong with living on Earth? Sarah Jane and Torchwood gang up to save Donna - one way or another.
 
Characters/Pairings:
Alan Jackson, Clyde Langer, Donna Noble, Ianto Jones, Jack Harkness, Luke Smith, Maria Jackson, Mickey Smith, Other Character(s), Sarah Jane Smith, The Doctor (10th), The Doctor (Author Created).... phew...


Warnings:
None, although a touch of language near the beginning.

Recced because:

I love this story. Period. It's a Donna-centric AU, where Team TARDIS get a bit narked that the Doctor wiped Donna's memories, and try to help her as much as they can. After they find her a job, Donna does a little bit of Donna-iness, and she slowly puts her life back together again. Yes, I know that it's been recced before, but seriously, it's worth reccing twice. Watch out for the suprise twist ending :-) A great story, with incredible characterisations.

Author’s summary:  Does Donna really need to remember her travels with the Doctor to unlock the confidence and strength she found on her travels with him? Doesn't that suggest that there's something wrong with living on Earth? Sarah Jane and Torchwood gang up to save Donna - one way or another.
Characters/Pairings: Donna Noble, Sarah Jane Smith, Jack Harkness, Martha Jones, Ianto Jones, Mickey Smith, Clyde Langer, Luke Smith, Maria Jackson, Alan Jackson, Wilfred Mott, Other Character(s) - including some surprise Old-School companions
Warnings: None

Reason for Recommendation: Donna Noble is awesome. It's as simple as that. And so is Team TARDIS, or more properly the Doctor's 'biggest family in the universe'. AND set out to prove, in this story, that there is nothing less awesome about being a human being, living a life on Earth, than there is about travelling in the TARDIS with the Doctor. With or without the Doctor, with or without her memories of being with him Donna is awesome and has potential to be more awesome still. Oh, and the Doctor is a complete wanker - and that's a direct quote. I absolutely love the team effort in this story, from the Torchwood gang to Sarah Jane's crew to Martha and assorted others (Mickey and Jack's early conversation is side-splittingly hilarious), and the way they combine to - metaphorically - bang the Doctor's head against the wall of his own emo. AND writes Donna brilliantly too. Watch for Donna's meeting with the baby-faced man from Wales - and my favourite scene, close to the end, with the wonderful Wilf.

Story: Altered States
Author: [profile] hhertzof 
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 2752
Author's Summary: Why would Sarah suddenly decide to get married? Luke is determined to find out the answer before he ends up with an unexpected stepparent.
Characters: Sarah Jane, Luke, Clyde, Maria, Alan, The Doctor (10th), Turlough

Recced Because: A fun, endearing, and cracky story deserves to be appreciated. In Altered States, Sarah Jane announces her wedding without sharing the groom's identity. Clyde, Luke, Maria, and Alan attempt to solve the mystery, while the Doctor arrives to cause a disruption.

"It began quite simply with Sarah announcing over tea that she was getting married. Luke was not amused."

Story: It's Aliens. No, Really!
Author: hhertzof
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 2730
Author's Summary: Luke, Maria and Clyde are searching for aliens, the Doctor's searching for spare parts and Sarah's searching for peace and quiet.
Characters/Pairings: Donna, Tenth Doctor, Alan, Clyde, Luke, Maria, Sarah
Warnings: None

Recced because: Because it's utterly silly. Yet still in keeping with the tone of Doctor Who and SJA. There's quite a few characters and quite a short story, yet they still all have their own role in it. I really liked the kids' reactions to seeing a police box and meeting the Doctor.
