Author's Summary: In Amy's Choice, the TARDIS was contaminated with psychic pollen. What if it had been sex pollen instead?
Characters/Pairings: Amy Pond/Rory Williams/The Doctor (11th)
Warnings: Explicit Sex

Recced because: I have another tropey fic weakness: sex pollen! And this is an AU where the heroes give in to it--it's unfortunate for them, but fortunate to us.

Author's Summary: River Song unexpectedly arrives on Pete's World. What could possibly go wrong?
Characters/Pairings: River Song, Rose Tyler, The Doctor (Duplicate 10th), TenII/Rose/River
Warnings: Explicit sex

Recc'ed Because: It's more than just a hot threesome. Don't get me wrong, it is a hot threesome, but with plot and original characters and relationships that complement and motivate and outshine the hot threesome. River gets catapulted into the zeppelin universe, where the duplicate Doctor is still trying to suss out his humanity, getting used to not having the TARDIS, getting used to being in a relationship. Rose is curious and smart and realistically a bit jealous, but [livejournal.com profile] nonelvis gives this story time to unfold, explore, and believably grow the relationship between River and Rose, whether the Doctor wants it or not. And at the end, he may juuust finally realize he does.

Story: Drabbling Through History
Author: Yamx
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 687
Author's Summary: Five drabbles connecting DW/TW characters with historical events/persons.
Characters/Pairings: The Doctor (9th), The TARDIS, Jack Harkness, Other Character(s), Rose Tyler, The Doctor (10th), The TARDIS, Amy Pond, Other Character(s), The Doctor (11th), The TARDIS, Jack Harkness
Warnings: Explicit Sex

Recced because: 100-word Drabbles are an interesting form of fiction, and are hard to write well - here Yamx has written six in which the Doctor and friends interact with various historical and legendary events. In view of the shortness of the chapters I haven't included an extract.

Author's Summary: Rose and some other companions meet an interesting quirk of Time Lord biology.
Characters/Pairing: 9th Doctor, 10th Doctor, 11th Doctor, the Master (Simm), Rose Tyler, Donna Noble, Jack Harkness, Reinette
Warnings: Explicit sex

Recced because: This is crackfic at its most delicious. There are plenty of fics that deal with the differences between Time Lord and human biology, and this one deals with-you guessed it-a certain talking part of the Doctor's anatomy and the hilarity that ensues when his companions encounter it. Scottish accents...they're not just for Time Lords anymore!

Author: nonelvis

Rating: Teen

Word Count: 4048

Author's Summary: This time with Amy and Rory was going to be different.

Characters/Pairings: Eleven/Amy/Rory, Eleven/River

Warnings: Recreational drug use

Recced Because:

I am actually astounded that no one has beat me to reccing this, because it is hilarious (it really should have a tea-near-keyboard warning on it), sexy, clever, and one of the overall best Eleven/Amy/Rory fics I've ever read. It continues such diverse marvels as: Eleven attempting to cook breakfast, Eleven being angry at primitive kitchen appliances, jokes about the UNIT dating controversy, futuristic petunias, Sharkrace 3000, and a scene inspired by this post from texts from the TARDIS.

There's so much going on that when I went to fill out the reccing form I was a bit stunned to realize it's only a little over 4000 words. And, however whacky it all gets, the character voices read true throughout. It's about the Ponds being a strange, dysfunctional, happy, ridiculous family who continue to be all of those descriptors whether they are rocketing across the cosmos on the back of a magical space whale, or sitting around the kitchen eating cereal.

Story: To Please
Author: Canaan
Rating: Adult
Author's Summary:"I'm going out on a limb, here--is it a sex club?"
Characters/Pairings: Nine/Jack/Rose
Warnings: Explicit sex, BDSM

Recced because: This is the story that made dozens of people say, "I'm usually really not into BDSM, but I absolutely loved this story." (Seriously. If you read it on LJ rather than Teaspoon, you could see it in the comments. Over and over again.)

That's because it's not a story about BDSM. Oh, it contains plenty of BDSM, and if you are into that, you'll love it for that reason alone. But it's so much more.

As an asexual, I'm not only not into BDSM, I'm not into sex, period. I don't mind it, but it usually bores me. In most stories, I skim over the sex scenes. In this one, I didn't. This is the story that made me understand why sex in fiction can be important. It can be used simply as titillation for the reader, sure, and that's a perfectly valid use of it--which just happens to fall perfectly flat with me. But it can also be used as a tool to explore the characters in new ways--show them open and vulnerable and let the reader experience important moments of growth in their relationships. And that is what Canaan does in To Please.

This was the story that made me realize that if I wanted to truly be able to explore all facets of my characters' lives, I had to learn to write sex. I'd never written a single sex scene, nor felt any need to, before I read this story. It wasn't prudishness, I just literally didn't care. This story showed me why I should. If you've ever read anything remotely smutty by me and enjoyed it, you have this story to thank for it.

Author's Summary: Eleven wants to discuss last night with Rory. Rory really wishes he wouldn’t.
Characters/Pairings: Rory Williams, The Doctor (11th), Contains background Eleven/River/Romana II.
Warnings: None

Recced because: This is an amusing little story. The Doctor's story of what happened the night before and the way he tells it are funny and in character, as is Rory's reaction. The Doctor failing to understand that he's talking about the sort of thing a father doesn't want to know about his Doctor just make it funnier.

Author's Summary: Eighteen days into his suspension, Ianto tries to start putting things back together by tearing them all down first.
Characters/Pairings: Jack/Ianto, Ianto/OC, Jack/Ianto/OC
Warnings: Explicit sex, language

Recced because: There are at least dozens if not hundreds of “What Ianto did during his post-Cyberwoman suspension” fics out there. This is one of the best I've read. It delves into just how seriously messed up Ianto is, and more than that, what it takes to piece him back together. The OC, Cheyenne, is gritty and flawed and mirrors many of Ianto's dysfunctions through a different lens in really interesting ways. It's not, however, a strictly character piece (though I would call it highly character-driven), and while parts are extremely steamy, it's not PWP. It's also got a solid action/adventure plot that sort of sneaks up on the reader, as it sneaks up on Ianto.

Story: The Doctor Still Dances
Author: teacupnosaucer
Rating: Adult
Word Count: 1203
Author's Summary: Amy and Rory play dress-up. So, coincidentally, does the Doctor.
Characters/Pairings: Amy Pond/ Rory Williams/ Eleventh Doctor
Warnings: None

Recced because: I didn't set out to make this threesome week, it just happened that way! As it is, the Doctor Still Dances manages to capture just about everything I love in the interaction between Amy, Rory and the Doctor. Amy is playful and doesn't take things too seriously; Rory is a bit reluctant but is willing to try for Amy; and the Doctor is willing to put aside his demons for a moment (but just for a moment) for his companions. And just like in the best episodes of this trio, there's also the slightly uncomfortable undercurrent, the things we, the audience know, that Amy and Rory don't - this fic manages to be touching and fun at the same time.

Author's Summary: Luke, Clyde and Rani are not a triangle, and they add up to more than a guaranteed one hundred and eighty.
Characters/Pairings: Clyde Langer/Rani Chandra/Luke Smith, Sarah Jane Smith
Warnings: None.

Recced because: It's a SJA fic, which is always a great way to start the week - and in this case, it's also incredibly sweet. What strikes me most about this fic is how intertwined the friendship and love between the main characters is. Like the triangle it describes, neither is more important than the other - they're both two sides of the same coin. Just like all three characters manage to be in character and their awesome selves.

Story: Search and Rescue
Author: yamx
Rating: teen
Word Count: 2608
Author's Summary: Worried about the comatose Doctor, Jack makes a dangerous choice.
Characters/Pairings: Jack Harkness/Rose Tyler/the Doctor (ninth)
Warnings: none

Recced because: There are some authors, and some stories, I just keep coming back to.

I think I discovered yamx while looking for stories about what happened between "The Doctor Dances" and "Boom Town," which is a rich, rich vein of fic that has been mined by excellent authors such as DameRuth, wmr, HonorH, RobinC—the list goes on and on.  yamx is one of many people who have started with "The Doctor Dances" and gone on to tell a rich, compelling, three-cornered love story, full of misunderstandings and cultural clashes and prickliness and, of course, kissing and making up.

For me personally, fics that involve telepathy are—is it possible to have nonsexual kinks?  Because if it is, telepathy is one of mine.  So are stories that acknowledge that the Doctor is different.  "Search and Rescue" does both, but despite the Doctor's acknowledged alienness, it's still very much a love story.  Love, as another fine author wrote on this site, crosses all sorts of boundaries.

So if it's late at night, and you're feeling a little low, and you just want something that makes you feel a bit of a warm glow before you head off to bed—well, I have a mental list of things to go read when that mood hits me, and "Search and Rescue" is on it.  Try it.  It might go on your list too.

Rating: Adult
Word Count: 3305
Author's Summary: Jack Harkness met Amy and Rory long before he met the Doctor.
Characters/Pairings: Jack/Amy/Rory
Warnings: None

Recced because: This story apparently stemmed from a throwaway line early in the series about Jack Harkness sleeping with his executioners. How the author got from that to the idea that Amy and Rory somehow happened to be said executioners, I've no idea. But I don't really mind at all; it gets us the fun sexy hilarity and craziness that is this fic. Even amidst the silliness, I love the dialogue and characterization too.

Author's Summary: Season 6B. The Doctor asks a favor from the Master for Jamie. The Master has a mutually satisfying repayment plan. Two/Delgado!Master/Jamie McCrimmon, plus chocolate.
Characters/Pairings: Two/Delgado!Master/Jamie McCrimmon
Warnings: explicit sex

Recced because: Okay, so I really like Two, and I really like Jamie, and of course the concept of Season 6B is amazing. (For the unfamiliar - the idea is that after Two was captured by the Time Lords, there was a further period where he adventured with Jamie and worked for the Time Lords before regenerating into Three. It's about four parts canon evidence and six parts fannish wishful thinking.) Add to that the fact that I really really like Delgado!Master, and I think you might get why I love this fic so much. It has amazing characterization! It's really sweet and happy and then slightly sad! This is way above your average PWP.

The Starry Night is the first painting that I fell in love with when I was a child, so the description in this story of how Amy has felt about Vincent since childhood really resonates with me.  I think it is a lovely missing scene, and beautifully written.

Hi, I'm Canaan Alexander, and I'll be your reccer this week. I'll be reccing mostly New Who and a little Torchwood, and there may be more than one story by the same author in here--too many people I wanted to rec have neglected to put their stories on Teaspoon for us. *g* Fortunately, there are plenty of delightful ones left to choose from. Let's start with . . .


Story: Left Behind
Author: azriona
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 14366
Author's Summary: After a hundred and fifty years, Jack Harkness is used to saying goodbye. He's just getting the hang of saying hello.
Characters/Pairings: (Ten)/Rose/Jack
Warnings: none

Recced because: This is the first Pete's World OT3 reunion story I've ever read that isn't really AU. The premise for getting all three characters into Pete's World is very clever, but that's not why you'll want to read it. You'll want to read it because it's the story of the growing up Rose had to do while stranded in an alternate universe between the end of s2 and the end of s4. It deals with heartache and loss as well as the decisions we ultimately make to go on with the rest of our lives after loss . . . all before Rose ever gets Donna to turn left.


If you like this story, please remember to leave the author a comment. Authors like comments, even if they're as simple as "I really like this." It makes us write more.

This fic is both funny and touching. [livejournal.com profile] pocketmouse has a wonderful understanding of how our current Team TARDIS works together, and I especially love the relationship Amy and Rory have here. It is perfectly in-character, delightful, and sexy, despite not having any actual sex in it.

Author's Summary: Amy and Rory settle into themselves, and life on the TARDIS. The Doctor is the Doctor.
Characters/Pairings: The Doctor (11th), Amy Pond, Rory Williams (Amy/Rory, Doctor/Amy/Rory)

Recced because: This is some gorgeous and introspective not-quite-OT3 that gets the voices of the characters just right. [livejournal.com profile] pocketmouse has structured this story so perfectly, with unconnected scenes set within a larger story--told out of order--showing the emotional arc of Amy, Rory, and the Doctor as they grow closer to each other individually and as a whole.

Author's Summary: The TARDIS team dances around their new relationship. As they draw closer, the connection creates unexpected resonances.
Characters/Pairings: Nine/Jack/Rose
Warnings: Explicit Sex

Recced because: This is Ninamusing's amazing H/C WIP. When I first encountered it, it grabbed me by the throat and refused to let go. It's a love story, but not one that shirks the darker moments these three are capable of. Both the characters and their adventures are 100% believable; if Doctor Who didn't run in a family-friendly timeslot, it might look like this. Even if you don't read works-in-progress, this one's worth getting into. No matter how long you have to wait for each new chapter, it will always be worth it.

This excerpt is the point in the first chapter where I was already hooked. )

Hi, I'm Canaan Alexander, and I'll be your reccer this week. What, you may ask, am I doing taking the time to make recommendations when there are so many other projects that I ought to be working on and stories I ought to be writing? I finally decided there were just too many amazing fics that no one else had recced here yet, and it was my fannish duty to make sure that everyone had been exposed to them.

I'll be reccing a fairly broad range of pairings across New Who, Classic Who, and Torchwood, but I'm very Jack-centric, so you'll find he turns up in most of them. :-) And now, on with the show!

Story: Well, You Know
Author: Roach Patrol
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 5006
Author's Summary: It is July in New New York, 099: the dawning of the latest and greatest era of beauty, freedom, truth and love, but mostly love. And when it comes to Rose Tyler and Jack Harkness, a lot of beauty. John Smith is so hopelessly in love with his two best friends that sometimes he thinks he could just about explode. But he's no one special. Not really.
Characters/Pairings: Nine/Jack/Rose
Warnings: Swearing

Recced because: "Well, You Know" is an AU take on fobwatched!Nine, if he were still traveling with Rose and Jack. Roach Patrol's prose is beautiful, the setting she's chosen is the perfect vehicle for the story she's telling, and the story arc comes full circle so beautifully, it takes my breath away and bring tears to my eyes.

Author's Summary: The Doctor has to use the Chameleon Arch while traveling with Rose and Jack. What will happen, and how will it affect their relationship?
Characters/Pairings: Nine/Jack/Rose
Warnings: None.

Recced because: I will be honest and say right up front that this is the fic [livejournal.com profile] yamx wrote for me when I won her in [livejournal.com profile] help_haiti - but even if it weren't, I'd be reccing it anyway, because it was so far beyond anything I ever hoped for when I gave her the prompt. A Chameleon Arch'd Nine isn't something many writers in the fandom have taken on, because, I think, it's difficult to think about: a Nine without the TARDIS, without his Time Lordliness, would be . . . a mess. [livejournal.com profile] yamx chooses to focus less on why Nine is hiding and more on how it affects him and his traveling companions, and just as in Human Nature/Family of Blood, that proves to be far more compelling.

Characters/Pairings: Nine/Jack/Rose
Warnings: Dark and slightly gruesome in parts.

Recced because: This fic fits into [livejournal.com profile] canaana's Major Arcana series, which goes AU as of "Parting of the Ways." But I think this story stands on its own pretty well, and is my favorite of the series for the way it deals with Jack's immortality. It's grim and difficult in parts, but the payoff is worth it, and [livejournal.com profile] canaana's characterization of Jack is, as always, stellar.

Word Count: 11,466
Author's Summary: Who makes the first move?
Characters: Eleven/Amy/Rory
Warnings: Explicit sex

Recc'ed because: Do we have a fandom term for "smart smut"? (Smurt?-- No, no, that's horrible. Never mind). Anyway, whatever you call it, this fic has it, in spades. It's totally hot, bordering on a voyeuristic kind of kink, but only just, and the thing is, it's completely in character for the eventual threesome to evolve that way. It's inventive and gorgeously written; pocketmouse weaves the relationship non-linearly among past and present stories, misadventures, rescues, wry humor, and poignant character studies of all three of the main characters. Brilliant work, really. Save it for home; it's completely NSFW, but do go read it.

Characters/Pairings: Romana/Strella/Reinhardt, Romana/Mel, Romana/Tosh, Romana/Harry, Romana/Simm!Master, Romana/Lucy, Romana/Sarah Jane, Romana/Martha, Tenth Doctor
Warnings: no actual on-screen sex (though there's plenty of implying)

Recced because: It's silly, naughty, and just plain fun, not mention pretty darn funny as well. I especially enjoyed the running gag about week-long Time Lady orgasms. (The story it remixes, Livii's she'll be superb is fun as well, but Magicallaw already recced it two years ago.)


Everything you ever heard about Time Lord sexuality, or the nonexistence thereof, is a lie.

Okay, historically it's true that Time Lords were a bit repressed. The grandeur and majesty of the heritage of Rassilon didn't exactly lend itself to elaborate scenes of debauchery. But these days, there are only a handful of Time Lords around, and it's safe to say the species is, as a whole, pretty damn sexy. If a skinny man in a suit offers you a ride in his phone box, you'd best pack your good knickers. If a dapper madman takes you out dancing, you should resign yourself to the inevitability of a night of passion and bad pop music. If a sweet-looking blonde gives you a flirtatious look over the rim of her cocktail glass--

But let's not get ahead of ourselves.

Story: A School for Scandal?
Author: Azar
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 1439
Author's summary: "Don't you remember, he said we'd give the Time Lords a shake-up they really needed?" Ace/Martha/Donna--VERY AU crack!fic.
Characters/Pairings: Martha/Donna/Ace, Romana, OC
Warnings: None I can think of.

Recced because: About a year and a half ago, the most awesome ficathon ever conceived in this fandom took place. It was called the Cliche Swap-a-thon and what it basically entailed was taking the cliched plotlines from various pairings and challenging people to write fic for other pairings using those plotlines. Which meant that suddenly the internet had Ten/Martha stopwatch porn, the TARDIS shipping Seven/Ace, and fic in which the Doctor reassures the Master he was never second best. Much fun and lulz were had by all.

As you may have guessed, Azar's "A School For Scandal?" was one of the fics written. It takes the "group sex and academy hijinx" cliche so beloved of Doctor/Master/Rani shipfics and instead applies it to Martha, Donna, and Ace. Well, if any of the Doctor's companions were to end up attending the Prydonian Academy, it would probably be those three. The resulting fic is cracky and hilarious. I was giggling all the way through it. It probably helped that the one original character from the beginning of the fic--an Academy master--is the perfect portrait of Time Lordly stuffiness and his octosyllabic name sounds wonderfully silly said out loud.

Martha looked at her with a raised eyebrow. "So which of us is going to graduate and go all megalomaniacal, then?"

"I dunno." Ace shrugged with a twinkle in her eye. "It might be a lark, being evil."

Donna shrugged too. "I'm up for it." She smirked at Martha. "And you're already the doctor of us anyway, so it's only fair."

Recced because: I couldn't go through this week without reccing a fic about my OT3. This fic is a hidden gem for this 'ship, and I'd recommend it even to those who don't ship them, because it is above all a fascinating foray into the Ninth Doctor's mind.

Recced because: A good crack is good for the soul. This one's magnificent.

Rating: All Ages


Word Count: 3973


Author's Summary:
It had been one of the more miserable nights of Jack Harkness's life.


Characters/Pairings: The Ninth Doctor, Jack Harkness, Rose Tyler, hints of Doctor/Jack/Rose


Warnings: None

Recced because: If you like hurt/comfort fics, (like me) then you’ll probably love this. It’s angsty, with some subtle shippyness and cute thrown in, and the fact that it has our favorite trio, Nine, Jack, and Rose, makes It even better!

Story: Striking Roots
Author: DameRuth
Rating: Adult
Word Count: 4514
Author's Summary: After the Doctor suffers a terrible shock in the Flowers!verse, it's up to Rose and Jack to comfort him and each other.
Characters/Pairings: Nine/Rose/Jack (in a fashion)
Warnings: Sex, angst

Recced because: This is part of DameRuth's very original and creative Flowers series. The basic premise is that though the Doctor loves Rose deeply, there are way too many biological barriers--physical and chemical--for them to become lovers. Thus, Jack becomes Rose's lover, not just because he loves her himself, but as the Doctor's surrogate. I recommend the whole series for its creativity and sense of melancholy. (Later in the series, Jack, being Jack, finds a way around the biological barriers, but by then, Rose is gone. Thus, Jack and Ten become lovers.)

Anyway, to the story: Our trio come across the horrifying aftermath of a fobwatched Time Lord gone terribly wrong. The Time Lord (unnamed) is long dead, and the fobwatch itself, containing the Time Lord's essence, has become a lethal object of temptation to anyone who finds it. Its discovery sends the Doctor into an emotional tailspin. Jack and Rose can take comfort in each other, but they can't offer the same to him--or can they? The story is told in gorgeous language, the bittersweet dynamic amongst the three of them laid bare as comfort is sought and given.

This is my last rec for the week as my computer has died a traumatic death and libraries aren't open on Sundays. Thanks for having me; apart from computer issues, it's been very enjoyable.

Author's Summary: Peri and Erimem rope the Doctor into a little fun..
Characters/Pairings: Five/Peri/Erimem
Warnings: Graphic sex

Recced because: The Fifth Doctor's modesty is spot on. It's brilliant to read Peri and Erimem slowly breaking down the Doctor's barriers. Not a word is wasted in this not so little gem.

Hi there, I'm Miss Winterhill (Winterhill on Teaspoon) and I'm helping with the recs this week. I'll be reccing some Torchwood and some Seventh Doctor era stuff across the week. I thought I'd start with something a little strange and more than a little sexy from the Torchwood section!

Story: Stranded

Author: ceefax_the_sane

Rating: Adult

Word Count: 9051

Author's Summary: AU. It's Ianto's first time. For a threesome with Jack and an alien, that is.

Characters/Pairings: Ianto Jones/Jack Harkness/OC Alien

Warnings:Explicit Sex

Recced because: ceefax_the_sane writes the most brilliantly imagined AUs, pulling us sharply away from the everyday. Jack and Ianto are stranded on an alien planet in this fic and ceefax_the_sane shows us that just because you're out of your space and time doesn't mean that you can forsake the world of work, office romances, learning the language, sex (quite a bit of sex, the explicit sex warning isn't just there for kicks!) and going out to the pub to celebrate little milestones.

Jack is in his element in this fic; all-knowing, sexy and adaptable. ceefax_the_sane has created a gorgeous OC in Ianto's tentacled co-worker Nir, a shy Sulamid with a crush on the exotically human Ianto; an OC who lives in a world that I found had a surprising sense of verisimilitude (surprising given that I've never actually seen an alien planet...) Give it a go! You might like it.

These are the recommendations of the Calufrax reccer Biichan. My week-long mission is to explore strange new genres, to seek out new authors and new pairings, and to boldly rec where I have not recced before.

Story: The Doctor's Rib
Author: Azar
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 4549
Author's summary: Hope can come from unexpected places.
Characters/Pairings: Female!Eleventh Doctor/Ninth Doctor, Female!Eleventh Doctor/Rose/Jack
Warnings: Somewhat akin to babyfic. Kindasorta. Conceptionfic perhaps?

Recced because: Because it has my absolute favorite way of repopulating the Time Lord species that I have ever found in Whofic. And besides, it makes sense, somehow, that there'd be a clear biological reason for the Doctor to suddenly regenerate into a woman.

And, well, I have a rather large soft spot for the story in general, given that it was the first Doctor Who fanfic I ever read—dating back to the days when I was a casual viewer of a few random episodes and not yet a full-fledged fan of the show—as well as the one that introduced me to the whole girl!Doctor concept. It's all been jossed, of course, but I still feel like the story itself has held up rather well over the years.

(Oh, and if you're wondering about the whole mission statement above, I've decided to challenge myself this week to only rec people whom I've never recced in Calufrax before. I've been worrying lately that I'm falling into a bit of a rut, so this is a good way to snap out of it.)

Story: Something Blue
Author: Nostalgia
Rating: Adult
Word Count: 1432
Author's Summary: Ten/Martha/TARDIS - "Oh, come on, it's not like you haven't thought about it."
Characters/Pairings: Ten/Martha/TARDIS, as promised.
Warnings: Graphic sex.

Recced because: I didn't really mean to do two Doctor/TARDIS recs in one week, but I ran across this story in my bookmarks and remembered how much I liked it. Nostalgia has a gift for funny dialogue, and the console-room sex (with TARDIS as participant, or at least presence) is both hot and appropriately alien.

Story: "And Always"
Author: rallalon
Rating: Adult
Word Count: 2182
Author's Summary: "'Hello,' Rose replies, tugging the Doctor’s overcoat tighter around her, brown-dyed hair brushing softly against the lapels."
Characters/Pairings: Ten/Jack/Rose
Warnings: Sexual situations/language.

Recced because: This story is part of an AU series, "Held at a Distance," the first story of which has already been recced here.  It's an OT3 tale with a difference: in this 'Verse, the team keep in touch after TPOTW, but Jack's "wrongness" causes the Doctor to be violently, physically ill if two of them get too close ("too close" being "within thirty feet of one another").  As a result, Jack has separated from the others but they stay in periodic contact, with Rose acting as the go-between.  In this (very explicit) story, Rose and the Doctor conspire to give Jack a special, unexpected surprise during one of her visits; the love and longing are achingly palpable and vividly memorable, turning what could have been a simple PWP (if an exceptionally well-written one) into one of the most sweetly heartbreaking stories you'll ever read.  (Be sure to read the whole series, while you're there -- well worth it!!)

Author's Summary: It is a well known fact that triangles are the strongest of all architectural structures. There’s a reason for that.
Characters/Pairings: Nine/Jack/Rose
Warnings: None

Recced because: Anyone who knows me is well aware that I'm exceptionally fond of Nine/Jack/Rose OT3 stories.  Some well-done hurt/comfort doesn't exactly go awry, either.  In this story, one of our fandom's real masters of h/c takes my fave threesome and runs them through the emotional blender, beautifully.  There's no sex but plenty of love, and some really nice Nine-POV work.  It's a rough ride with a wonderfully cuddly ending, and a great way to start the new year.  :D

Story: Den of Thieves
Author: livii
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 897
Author's Summary: "You've gone for ages, you've already gone, you're still here, just arrived, haven't even met you yet. It all depends on who you are and how you look at it. Strange business, time."
Characters/Pairings: Mel/Ace/Seventh Doctor
Warnings:

Recced because: Space Pirate Mel is a favorite trope of Mel fans. Here livii presents a bit of a darker look at this trope. The Mel presented is still Mel, but she's a bit darker, a bit less carefree. This is a lovely character story of how Mel might have turned out.

Author's Summary: Sarah Jane Smith comes home.
Characters/Pairings: Sarah Jane Smith/Sergeant Benton/Harry Sullivan
Warnings: Awesomeness

Recced because: This story was written for me, so it should be no surprise to anyone that I'm reccing it. But the truth is, even if it hadn't been written for me this would still be one of my top five favorite Who stories EVER. It's got everything I could possibly want. Hope and love and companions realistically dealing with the aftermath of their time with the Doctor. It also has one of the greatest Brig cameos in the history of fanfic. I love this story so much it's ridiculous.

A small taste... )
