rec: slumber at dawn

Story: Slumber At Dawn
Author: mary_pseud
Series: Damnatio Memoriae - story #1.
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 1347
Author's Summary: The Doctor was just looking for a pretty sunrise. Instead, he found a planet's final dawn.
Characters/Pairings: Second Doctor, mentions of Jamie.
Warnings: None

Recced because: I wasn't expecting such richness if ideas and imagery in such a short piece. The author may stumble slightly here and there, but overall this is a charming, poignant moment in time where two cultures clash and beauty is found in tragedy.

Note to the comm: I apologise for only just turning up to rec now, lol! The hemispherical time difference coupled with a bit of confusion on my part (I'm not getting much sleep this week) resulted in this being my first rec for the week. I'll make it up to you both in volume and (hopefully) in quality :)

Rec: Keeping Up with Sarah Jane

Story: Keeping Up with Sarah Jane
Author: Maymargaret
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 2420
Author's Summary: Harry Sullivan visits Sarah Jane shortly after her adoption of Luke.
Characters/Pairings: Harry, Sarah, Luke
Warnings: None

Recced because: I like the way this story shows us how Sarah is trying to deal with suddenly becoming a mother, but from Harry's point of view. The relationships between Sarah & Harry and Sarah & Luke are quite sweet in this. Sarah's just typically Sarah in this.

rec: punk rock girl

Story: Punk Rock Girl
Author: livii
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 2267
Author's Summary: In which it's retro night, strange girls with pink hair have code names, and Hex is spoiled for any other girl, ever, at the tender age of eighteen. Where's your head at?
Characters/Pairings: Ace/Hex
Warnings: None given, but there is a sex scene in there.

Recced because: It's such a brilliant depiction of Ace at her most human and strong. There's a whole subplot going on in the background and livii manages to make it central to the plot and both completely unimportant to the majority of the word count. Brilliant. Review this fic - it's got a single, solitary review and it's worth so much more despite it's brevity.
