Rec: Welcome To Your Life/Life As You Know It

So, after the slight disaster that was my first rec, I come bearing a two for one (kinda).

Story: Welcome To Your Life
Author: avoria
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 40,855
Author's Summary: The most important things can be what we don’t see. Clips and companion pieces to every episode throughout the newer Season. What starts with Rose ends with Doomsday; apparently.
Character's/Pairings: Rose Tyler/The Doctor (Ninth), Jack Harkness
Warnings: Swearing but that's about it at this point.

Recced because: Avoria is one of my favorite DW authors and this is one of my favorite of her stories. It shows the progression of the relationship between the Doctor and Rose in small, intimate moments between the episodes of the first new series. It's also a great study of the Doctor and how deeply affected he is by the Time War and the things he had to do. There IS a sequel to this but it's not quite finished yet. It follows them through the second series:

Story: Life As You Know It
Author: avoria
Rating: Adult
Word Count (so far): 24,817
Author's Summary: As the relationship between Rose and the Doctor develops, can he resist the temptation of his own selfishness?
Character's/Pairings: Rose Tyler/The Doctor (Tenth), Mickey Smith
god of mischief

recs: drink to the days and light, and the stars beyond

Story: Drink to the Days
Author: Adriene
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 1,392
Charcters/Pairings: 10, implied Rose/10 if you want
Author's Summary: Yes, he has something very peculiarly her, a taste he can’t get out of his mouth, and he spends all his days trying to find something to compliment it.
Warnings: drinking

Recced because: If you haven't noticed by now, I'm a sucker for endings that leave you breathless. This one certainly packs a punch. The whole story, in fact, is buildup for the last few lines, but the wait is definitely worth it.

Story: Light, and the Stars Beyond
Author: Casira
Rating: Teen (?)
Word Count: 4,226
Characters/Pairings: 10/Remus
Author's Summary: Wherein the Doctor encounters another werewolf, and discovers there's far more to this young man -- and the world at large -- than he'd ever guessed. HP crossover, Ten/Remus.
Warnings: slash

Recced because: It's one of those pairings you really can't see working until you read it. Remus has been shunned, Ten is angsty and endlessly curious as usual, and together they comfort each other. It's odd, but the author really makes it work. Plus, the Doctor at Hogwarts is a brilliant mental image.
