Love the World

rec: Ko-herance

Story: Ko-herance
Author: Fayth
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 4670
Author's Summary: Only an idiot doesn't have the sense to come in out of the rain. Tenth Doctor with rambling fever and slightly less coheranr than usual. Enjoy.
Characters/Pairings: Ten/Rose
Warnings: None.

Recced because: This made me giggle. Endlessly. I have the urge to laugh even *thinking* about this fic. It's fluffy, and happy, and so very in character. It also does a very good job of pointing out the Doctor's alien-ness with a vivid portrayal of a Time Lord's autoimmune response, and his response when asked about it is too cute: “Alien phys–physsi–fizzy-logy!” ... “Burning, on fire. Put me out, lotsa water, fizz. Fizz for fizz-ology.”

Rec: Everybody Wants You by aces

Story: Everybody Wants You
Author: aces
Rating: Teen
Author's summary: Jack Harkness. He's quite shaggable, really.
Characters/Pairings: Jack/Fitz, Jack/Ace, Jack/Peri, Jack/Nyssa, Jack/Harry, Jack/Jo/Yates/Benton/Brigadier (really!), Jack/Polly, Jack/Ian
Warnings: none
Word Count: ~2,900 words

Recced because: Captain Jack. Meeting (and sometimes shagging) his way through the DW canon. A tremendous amount of fun, and even if you don't know each character involved (I still haven't read any non-fanfic Fitz, myself) there's bound to be some you know and love. Some gorgeous characterizations - "It’s not as if I expected to walk into your—invisible spaceship, now, is it?” Harry retorted, nettled. “Now, look here, old chap, you can’t just leave things like this lying about where anyone could trip over them." - a mix of funny, insightful, and hot scenes, and a moment in UNIT's history that will keep me amused for the rest my life just picturing it all add up to an incredibly enjoyable fic.

rec: harvest, by sensiblecat

Story: Harvest
Author: sensiblecat
Rating: All Ages
Author's summary: It's 1969, money is tight and the Doctor isn't getting his five a day (Portions of fruit and veg, that is). But Martha, and the Italian family upstairs, may have the perfect solution.

A tale of Ten, Martha and a lot of zucchini (or courgettes, as they are known in Europe)
Characters/Pairings: Martha Jones, The Doctor (10th)
Warnings: None
Word Count: 3,113

Recced because: This is the first "1969" fic I read, sinking into the details of the months that Martha and the Doctor spent waiting for the events of "Blink" to come together and bring the TARDIS back to them. It has a perfect Martha voice- sensible and smart and still a bit starry-eyed about the Doctor, as together they embrace the Earth-bound flip-side of the TARDIS lifestyle- helping people and solving the small-scale problems that come with living on a shopgirl's income in London 1969.
