This one's a bit late, sorry. That's what I get for staying at office parties too long... :P

Story: Homecoming
Author: Kazzy
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 1597
Author's Summary: They’ve left the Doctor, but in many ways they’re coming home to world that is as foreign as any they’ve been to yet. It’s not easy to pick up the life you left behind.
Characters/Pairings: Ian/Barbara
Warnings: None.

Recced because: This is one of my absolute favorite Ian/Barbara fics. There have been quite a few takes of what happened to them after "The Chase", but I feel that this is the most plausible. It's realistic, understated and quite, quite lovely.

Story: Coming Around
Author: HonorH
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 7710
Author's Summary: He sees her for the first time. She sees him for the last.
Characters/Pairings: Rose Tyler, Eighth Doctor, Ninth Doctor, Fitz Kreiner, Nine/Rose
Warnings: graphic sex, character death

Recced because: This is a wonderful story that bridges the gap between the end of the Time War and the Doctor meeting Rose. A year after saying "goodbye" to the Doctor at Darlig Ulv Stranden, Rose has started moving on with her life. Then she sees the TARDIS fall from the sky, a casualty of the Time War.

One thing I love about this story is that both Rose and the Doctor are broken, but they're at different steps in the healing process. Rose is slowly putting things back together at this point, while the newly regenerated Ninth Doctor is all but falling apart. Once upon a time, a stranger held out his hand and offered to show Rose the universe; now she finally has a chance to repay him by making certain that he becomes the man that she met in her past and his future.
