And 'round we go again! This week I'm going to bring you three authors who haven't been recced here before, and some Big Finish and PDA love. Enjoy!

Story: Once Upon A Time
Author: atraphoenix
Rating: All Ages
Author's summary: Ian Chesterton was a scientist. He wasn’t supposed to believe in fairy tales.
Characters/Pairings: Ian/Barbara
Warnings: none
Word Count: ~1,200 words

Recced because: A beautiful story (written for me!), describing Ian's growth and journey through life and love, and his beliefs. The structure is terrific, with the story spinning out around a core of fairy tales, and using all sorts of little tricks like pointing out the narrative conventions being (currently) subverted. We see the world and Barbara through his eyes – and get to see a kick-ass moment for Barbara – and it's loving, creative, and thoughtful. Poisoned apples, and cursed spinning wheels. No kisses just yet, Ian thinks, waiting for his chance to be the knight on a white horse – or as best as he can be, whatever Barbara needs. Lovely work.

This week I will be spreading the Big Finish love. I'm going to rec stories for a different Big Finish companion each day.

Story: Chameleon
Author: jedi_penguin
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 360
Author's Summary:
Good and Evil can’t hide from C’rizz. He takes them in and makes them his own. He knows Good because he knows Charley.
Characters/Pairings: C'rizz/Charley
Warnings: Just for C'rizz in general.

Recced because: It's says C'rizz/Charley and it is, but it's more than that. This is a wonderful character study of C'rizz as well. C'rizz is an often forgotten Companion and jedi_penguin shows the many facets of C'rizz in a few short words. It's brilliant.

Greetings and salutations. My fic recs this week are a mixed bag, heavy on crossovers (though not all). Mostly I just chose stuff I liked that hadn't been recced before.

I also managed to convince myself that I wasn't reccing until next week, so you get the crack rec first.
