Recced because: Okay, by now we've probably all accepted that Donna isn't going spend series four slapping the Doctor around, but a girl can dream.

And for those of you who think that what the Tenth Doctor really needs is a companion who'll keep him in line I recommend this hilarious little gem. It's funny, fast paced and contains references to Donna saving the world with her breasts.

REC: On The Edges of Time

Story: On The Edges Of Time
Author: rollingstone
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 1096
Author's summary: There are days the Doctor has, and some he can only wish he had.
Characters/Pairings: Seventh Doctor, Susan, Jamie, Jo, Sarah Jane, Romana, Ace
Warnings: none, really

Recced because: It gives us a glimpse of emotional life of the Seventh Doctor--the man behind the mastermind, if you will--and it does it beautifully. Through a series of short vignettes, rollingstone lets the Doctor interact with his past companions in the classic Five Things That Never Happened fashion and then tops it all off with an absolutely perfect scene with Ace. Throughout the fic, rollingstone has an absolute knack to capturing the mood of a scene. The Seventh Doctor is similarly well-captured in both sides of his dual nature: clownish at one moment, deadly serious in the next.

Plus, the world needs more fics where the Seventh Doctor invites Romana to come dancing and offers to play the spoons for her.
