Rec: Missing by Misato

Story: Missing
Author: Misato
Rating: All Ages
Author's summary: During the year she's missing, Jackie never stops looking for Rose. One night she gets some unexpected help.
Characters/Pairings: Jackie Tyler, Jack Harkness (implied Jackie/Jack)
Warnings: none
Word Count: ~2,800 words

Recced because: This is just lovely; it's Jackie, eight months after Rose has gone missing, out one rainy night posting flyers across the city, like she does every two weeks. This particular night, she meets someone who's willing to lend a hand and an ear – someone who also misses Rose. This story gives us a Jackie who's very real; she's hurt, she's lonely, she misses her daughter but without ever idealizing Rose, or forgetting their sometimes complicated relationship – and without ever sliding into unnecessary emotionalism. It's lovely to see Jackie treated so well in fic, not dropping any consonants yet with the truest Jackie-voice I've read, and her relationship with Jack is mature and gives them both a few moments of true comfort. This is very good work.

Rec: A Delightful Species by jedi_penguin

As the icon indicates this will be the Evelyn rec for the week. I have already rec'd jedi_penguin this week, but it was unavoidable. That is a subtle hint that people need to write more Big Finish related fics.

Author's Summary: She would have said that she was too old for emotional rollercoasters, but she's been known to be mistaken before.
Characters/Pairings: Evelyn/Sixth Doctor
Warnings: Spoilers for Assassins in the Limelight

Recced because: This is a wonderful look at Evelyn's thoughts during the last few scenes of the audio. It has the same narrative feel as the audio which makes it click all the more as a tag to Assassins in the Limelight.
