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.

Author's Summary: In which Chrissie Jackson learns how to save the world without needing high heels.
Characters/Pairings: Chrissie Jackson/Sarah Jane Smith
Warnings: None.

Recced because: I only watched a little of the Sarah Jane Adventures, but the awesomeness of this story extends beyond my brief canon knowledge. If you're similarly unfamiliar, here's all you need to know: The premise is that Sarah Jane saves the world with the assistance of a bunch of kids. Chrissie Jackson is the mother of one of those kids - she doesn't know much about aliens, but she has managed to save the world with her high heels. Also she never remembers Sarah Jane's name. This fic goes from that basis into the future, with a bunch of cameos from other characters and aliens and a cute developing relationship between Chrissie and Sarah Jane.

Minervafan is one of my absolute favourite authors on the ‘spoon, and I think that it is an absolute crime that more of her stories haven’t been recc’d. I could happily spend all seven of my recs on her, but I had to be choosy and reduce it to one.
This is a story about an unlikely pairing which makes perfect sense when you see it written out. Chrissie and Jackie are very similar and their relationship is charming, funny, and vaguely tragic. Minervafan has a talent for taking side characters and fleshing them out into full, real people, and this story is a stellar example of that. Even if you don’t like femslash, I recommend you take a look at Minervafan’s work just for the amazing dialogue and characterization she brings to every story.
