Story: Naturally Curly
Author: crushedmidnight
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 1840
Author's Summary: The Doctor has a little trouble post-regeneration, and enlists Harry’s help.
Characters/Pairings: Fourth Doctor, Harry Sullivan
Warnings: nope

Recced because: I love Harry Sullivan and I love this story. The first time I read it I actually cried with laughter, and no matter how many times I re-read, I still grin from ear to ear. A bizarre bonding moment for the Fourth Doctor and Harry that is wonderfully in character and full of so much charm. I can't imagine how anyone could read this story and not smile.

Story: Not Her Type

Word Count: 760 words
Author's summary: Donna has standards.
Characters/Pairings: Tenth Doctor/Donna
Warnings: none

Recced because: This story is an amusing twist on the idea of a Ten/Donna relationship. In this case, Donna claims her main worry is that the aliens holding them prisoner will want her and the Doctor to have sex. It's refreshing to see the Doctor with a deflated ego from the thought that one of his companions might actually not be attracted to him. Best of all, Donna is the real star here, as she controls the situation from beginning to end.

Story: Terms of Employment
Author: Aeshna
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 7098
Charcters/Pairings: Jack Harkness, Harriet Jones
Author's Summary:"We'll survive. History's not done with you yet, and me... well, I always have before. Don't see why this time should be any different." Written some months before the Torchwood s1 premiere.

recced because: I do love origin stories, especially origin stories for how Jack ends up at Torchwood. Now this one is completely in AU-land thanks to Frangments, but what an AU it is. It's got a perfect Jack characterisation, perfect Harriet Jones and a lot of hard truths being examined between them both. Neither are perfect characters, but neither is the Doctor who brought them both to this point. It's a lovely examination of what could have been.
