tardis-dream, dream

Rec: Upon A Time

And here's my last rec for this week!

Story: Upon A Time
Author: AstroGirl
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 1127
Author's Summary: Time travel, fairy tales, the Ninth Doctor, and the TARDIS.
Characters/Pairings: 9th Doctor, TARDIS
Warnings: None

Recced because: I'm surprised that this wasn't recced by the person who was doing a TARDIS-themed week, but that means I can rec it myself!

This story is so lovely. It isn't just that this is one of those rare stories that feature the TARDIS-as-person (a person, but alien in its personhood); it is the way that this takes myths and fairy tales, weaves them into the events of Nine's tenure, and makes them fit. Full of symbolism, resonance and love, painted with a vibrant and poetic brush.
Sarah and Harry FEAR!

Rec: One More Time by Rivendellrose

Story: One More Time
Author: Rivendellrose
Rating: All Ages
Author's summary: Harry visits Sarah Jane, and tries an old argument one last time.
Characters/Pairings: Harry Sullivan/Sarah Jane Smith, Luke Smith
Warnings: none
Word Count: ~2,600 words

Recced because: Just a fabulous story, sweet and gently funny and softly romantic. Harry is ever-so Harry in this, proposing to Sarah thirteen times already (including the one time he was drunk at a UNIT party), and trying just one more time, even if it's starting to really wear on his joints, all this kneeling before her. There are great mentions of other favourites (Brigadier Benton and (former) Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart wanting Sarah to accept so Harry will stop whining about it!) and Luke has a small, but spot-on role. I don't usually ship Sarah and Harry and still found myself cheering; this is a fantastic little gem.
