rec: collected ficlets

Here is the first of my two longer-story recs in honor of making it through to midweek.

Story: Collected Ficlets
Author: livii
Rating: All Ages through Adult (each ficlet rated separately)
Word Count: 11,828 (most ficlets are under 500 words)
Author's Summary: What it says on the tin - a collection spot for drabbles and ficlets of ~1000 words or less.
Characters/Pairings: Nyssa/Tegan, Jack/Susan, Rose/Adam, Rose/Jabe, Sarah Jane/Benton, Sarah Jane/Benton/Harry, Benton/Yates, Benton/Jo, Harry/Benton, Barbara/Susan, Master/Brigadier, Master/Jo, Third Doctor/Jo, Romana/Duggan, Rose/Nancy, Tenth Doctor/Jo, Tenth Doctor/Martha, Seventh Doctor/Rose, Rose/altverse!Suzie, Rose/altverse!Sarah Jane, Rose/Benton, Jack/Ace, Martha/Harry, Martha/Sarah Jane, Ace/Hex, Fifth Doctor/Nyssa
Warnings: nope

Recced because: These are simply amazing. They just might be my favorite thing in all of Who fan fiction, and I don't say that lightly. I don't know how she does it, but livii manages to pack so much into these little stories. Entire worlds and relationships and so much emotion in tiny snapshots. And I really think there is something for everyone here. Whatever pairings or characters you prefer, whether you enjoy angst or humor or action, it's all there. And the best part is, it looks like she is going to continue to update the masterlist as she writes more of these ficlets, so bookmark this page, people!

(PS. As an added bonus, Benton stars in a number of the stories and she writes him fabulously.)

Rec: Not Just for Christmas

Story: Not Just for Christmas
Author: paranoidangel
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 1656 words
Author's summary: A dog is for life, not just for Christmas.
Characters/Pairings: Sarah Jane Smith, Luke Smith
Warnings: none

Recced because: It's an adorable Sarah Jane Adventures story about what happens when Sarah has to write a magazine review about a robot dog. Of course, the dog isn't exactly up to K9's standards. Luke misinterprets a casual comment made by Sarah and takes matters into his own hands, which leads to a touching resolution. This fic is just sweet enough without being overly saccharine.

Rec: Emotional Baggage Series by sensiblecat

Series: Emotional Baggage
Author: sensiblecat
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 6924 words (total series)
Author's summary: A series of conversations following Donna and the Doctor through Series 4.
Characters/Pairings: Tenth Doctor, Donna Noble
Warnings: none

Recced because: There's just something about Donna that makes the Doctor want to talk in the stories in this series. Every conversation they have reveals a little bit more about the Doctor's deeper character as well as Donna's. This the Donna we see on screen, magnified. It's an absolutely gorgeous series and if you only decide to read one series about the Doctor and Donna, I highly recommend that this be it.
