Spider Jerusalem Transmetropolitan

Rec: Obsession

There is an unfortunate lack of slash recs.


So... yay!  Slash! :D


Story: Obsession
Author: VanDonovan
Rating: Adult
Word Count: 13160 (in six parts)
Author's Summary: Some obsessions are impossible to ignore.

This is a bit cliché but should be fun anyway. At least, I hope you'll like it. There certainly isn't enough Second Doctor fic, cliché or not. :)
Characters/Pairings: Second Doctor/Jamie, Victoria
Warnings: Moderately graphic sex
Recced because:  VanDonovan is the high priest of Two/Jamie awesomeness, and this fic exemplifies why.  It is cliché fic at its best – it has a touch of aliens-made-them-do-it, but with a decent plot, spot-on characterization, and is absolutely adorable.  And really, lets be honest – the Doctor and Jamie are gay married in space.

illya: little more sonic

Fic: Summer in the City by aces

Looks like the calufrax slash representation is going to be up after this week then... :D

Story:
Summer in the City
Author: aces
Rating: Adult
Word Count: 1578
Author's Summary: Traveling with the Doctor was a little more complicated than Rose had expected.
Characters/Pairings: Rose/Polly
Warnings: femslash, but nothing explicit

Recced because: 'Any time you want a little brightness in your life, come to Pol.'  Polly is tragically underepresented in fic, and the portrayal of her in this little gem is so beguiling that it might just result in more.  It's a simple vignette: Rose wakes up in 1966 after an atypical (but not at all regretted) one night stand with someone the Doctor would recognise - if he wasn't off trawling record shops.  But there are no tricksy games with crossed timelines and mentions of TARDISes here.  This is all about two women in the moment: Polly, the blithely confident, effortlessly charming party girl, singing in the shower; Rose, blearily remembering the evening's events and moving from hungover to something rather better. 

If you know Polly, you'll delight in aces' perfect characterisation.  If you don't, it's a lovely introduction: read this, leave a review, and then dig out a copy of The War Machines so you can be seduced by her too.

rec: First-Hand Knowledge

Woo hoo! My week to rec! There's going to be a mixed bag from me, and here's the first one.

Story: First-Hand Knowledge
Author: AstroGirl
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 4482
Author's Summary: You know that thing that the Doctor lost on top of the spaceship in 'The Christmas Invasion?' This is the story of what happens to it.
Characters/Pairings: Other characters
Warnings: None

Recced because: This delightful story is not only an original idea, but it was far more fun than one might think. The narrator is endearingly stuffy; well-intentioned but oblivious. He has no idea of the chaos that will ensue when he makes a clone from Ten's hand. As for the clone itself, he's irresistable, irrepressable, hyperactive, perfectly realized; Ten without the weight of knowledge, years, or angst, but still very much Ten.
