rec: like nobody's watching

Story: Like Nobody's Watching
Author: Andraste
Rating: All Ages
Author's summary: The Doctor has been dancing for a long time.
Characters/Pairings: Doctors One through Ten, also Barbara, Ian, Vicki, Ben, Polly, Benton, Romana I, Tegan, Turlough, Evelyn, Mel, Charley, C'rizz, Rose and Jack. (Apologies to the unfortunate person doing the tags...)
Warnings: None

Recced because:
Ten Doctors, thirteen companions and a hell of a lot of dancing (that's dancing, not 'dancing'). I really appreciated the fact that this went for some less usual Doctor-companion pairs - Benton, C'rizz, the Seven segment being about Mel instead of Ace. I loved this for the humour and the insight, but what pushed it into must-rec category was the last section, with Barbara dancing at her wedding with a strange man in a pin-stripe suit, bringing the dance right back to the beginning.

rec: Five Times After Goodbye

Story: Five Times After Goodbye
Author: Camilla Sandman
Rating: Teen
Author's Summary: Twenty years after she said one goodbye, she wonders if this is a second.
Characters/pairings: Tenth Doctor/Martha Jones
Warnings: None

Recced because: Because I love the idea of the Doctor visiting any companion after they've left him. In this particular story, he visits them whilst they're still on board but because he knows he's going to lose them at one point, he still visits to make sure they're all right. However, I think he's visting them more for his sake then for their's. The concept of this fic, in my opinion, could work with most companions which is what makes it so special. I especially love the ending to this one and how it brings it right back to their first meeting.
