rec: Up Above, Down Below

Story: Up Above, Down Below
Author: Aeshna (aeshna_uk)
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 2389
Charcters/Pairings: Jack Harkness, Tish Jones
Author's Summary: And to think that she had once been excited about Mr. Saxon giving her a job.

recced because: This is one of those great "Fill-In-The-Blank" fics that, as the author details in her notes, takes on the premise that by the end of his time on The Valient Jack probably knew Tish Jones far longer and far better than her sister. This fic is a little slice of that relationship. Primarily a TW writer, Aeshna writes good, solid gen fic, a rare breed indeed! It was a struggle between reccing this crossover or one of her excellent TW fics, but in the end I went with the fic with the least attention. If you enjoy reading quiet slices of life that happens in between the flash and glitter, I think you'll enjoy this.

Rec: Crossed Paths

Story: Crossed Paths
Author: severa
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 3017
Author's Summary: The Doctor is stranded on a desolate planet and must rely on the help of his old nemeses. The Doctor isn't pleased with himself and this little paradox he created, but the Master is just enjoying the view (of this new Doctor that is). Five/Master is inferred. Okay, so the Master is just rather sketchy and in a flirtacious mood.
Characters/Pairings: The Doctor (8th), The Master (Ainley)
Warnings: none

Recced because: I love stories which throw together Doctors and Masters from differing timelines, and these two are a fun combination. Ainley!Master struggles to maintain his cool exterior despite his immediate infatuation with the startlingly pretty, endearingly exuberant Eight. Though quietly humourous in tone, the story also deals beautifully with the past and future bitterness and tragedy of these best of enemies.
