Hex'n'Ace eeeee

Rec: Doctors and Nurses by uktechgirl

Story: Doctors and Nurses
Author: uktechgirl
Rating: All Ages
Author's summary: In the middle of a war, Ace and Hex get some unexpected quiet time.
Characters/Pairings: Ace/Hex, Seventh Doctor
Warnings: none
Word Count: ~2,350 words

Recced because: This is so in-character it almost hurts; every word could be coming straight from my favourite of the audios. It's quiet and subtle and gorgeous: there's a war on, and no one is left unscathed, but through the grimness and devastation and blood and horror, there's a little bit of hope. From field triage to plastic surgery on Barbie dolls to a heart-breakingly just-about-shippy conclusion, with spot-on dialogue and an amazing sense of time and place in between, this made my heart sing.

Author's Summary: Lucie Miller, for just a moment, wishes she had been that girl.
Characters/Pairings: Lucie Miller, Eighth Doctor
Warnings: Takes place immediately after Human Resources

Recced because: This is a wonderful tag to Human Resources. Scarlettgirl shows the friendship between Lucie and the Doctor in a way that seemed to be missing from Human Resources itself. This feels like it could have been at the end of HR and is a very satisfying conclusion to that story arc.

Story: Not a Lady
Author: Wishingwillow
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 836
Author's Summary: More from the slow path, with remembrances of a box that was bigger on the inside. One Reinette never quite saw for herself.
Characters/Pairings: Reinette/Louis
Warnings: None

Recced because: I was indifferent to Reinette until I started reading Wishingwillow's work. She has a way of melding historical facts with Doctor Who canon and creating something wonderful. I debated about which story to choose, but I thought this was very representative of her work - showing a side of Reinette that we didn't get to see on screen.
