Rec: [the other side of the sky]

Story: [the other side of the sky]
Author: Aces
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 2464
Author's Summary: Jack was bewildered and dead. Or maybe just dreaming.
Characters/Pairings: Jack Harkness
Warnings: None

Recced because: It is a waking dream that never happened, in places that don't exist, with people who are not as they seem, and probably not even people. My favourite bit is Jack's encounter with Desire, but every bit of it is good. Quintessential Sandman, it captivates, teases, hints; full of myth and atmosphere.
illya: little more sonic

Author's Summary: "Write your own story then," Zoe says. "We're in a land of fiction. We can do anything we want."
Characters/Pairings: Zoe/Victoria
Warnings: none

Recced because: it's what the companion role is all about: characters who aren't just piggybacking onto a Time Lord's wacky fun, but learning how to live 'the adventure inside of them'. Zoe, with her superbrain and sparkly arse, already knows this - so when she runs into Victoria Waterfield in The Mind Robber's Land of Fiction, she's the ideal person to help her to write her own story. Sweet, funny, and - if it doesn't sound too absurd - empowering. And did I mention the sparkly arse?
