rec: Three's Crowd

Story: Three's a Crowd
Author: Gillian Taylor
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 7616
Charcters/Pairings: Eighth Doctor, Charlie Pollard (Spoilers for "Storm Warning")
Author's Summary: I love company, you know. I just don’t care for it when it decides you or your friends make a tasty meal.

recced because: I have a deep, deep love for the Eighth Doctor Audios (McGann was robbed, yo!) and this story captures the manic ramblings of Audio!Doctor perfectly. It's a story that fits neatly into audio canon and yet, even without knowing any backstory, is a complete story in and of its own. But mostly it's the Eighth Doctor being the Eighth Doctor and that's pretty amazing.

rec: then sleep the season by cherry ice

Story: Then Sleep the Season
Author: Cherry Ice
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 1954
Author's Summary: The TARDIS is not her home, and she is more a stranger here than she has ever been. Romana, last of the Time Lords.
Characters/Pairings: Romana, Mickey Smith, K-9
Warnings: N/A

Recced because: The very idea of an AU where Romana is the last of the Time Lords with Mickey as her companion is of course fantastic, but it's the execution that really makes this fic. The characterisation is superb, Romana's guilt over the war and how ill at ease she feels in the Doctor's TARDIS is both painful and wonderful.
