Story: Overthrown
Author: aces
Rating: All Ages
Author's summary: Hex + nursing = Ace in big trouble.
Characters/Pairings: Hex, Ace
Warnings: none
Word Count: ~2,600 words

Recced because: Absolutely adorable audio!fic; this is set just after Live 34, but it stands alone very well, in case you haven't heard it. Ace and Hex are both perfectly in character, with wonderfully crackling dialogue. Hex nurses Ace, and for better or worse she lets him; the story has just a hint of shippiness lurking underneath, but really is about friendship and love, in all its forms. With some great lines, such as Ace snarking about Hex's propensity to take pulses with "Are you sure it's not just because you always had a secret desire to prop young women up with pillows and feel up their wrists?", discussions about responsibility, getting to see Hex perform and be utterly excellent at his job, and Ace's repeated desire to throw an alarm clock at Hex's head, the characters are lovingly rendered and this is just a complete joy to read.

Recced because: It's spot on Hex. From his awkwardness to the planning out how to propose to the ways in which things go wrong.

Story: Of Gallifreyan Bondage

Rating: Teen
Word Count: 1833
Author's Summary: 4th Doctor and Sarah. A/U. The Doctor learns that he has an unusual reaction to a common earth object. Suggestive silliness ensues.
Characters/Pairings: Four/Sarah
Warnings: None

Recced because: Suggestive sillyness is right. This story manages to be hot and absurd at the same time. Both Doctor and companion are spot on and if I said any more it would spoil the story.

ETA: Now with actual linkage and correct spelling of the authors name. This is what happens when I post right before I go to bed. :/
