Rec: Photocopy by agapi42

Story: Photocopy
Author: agapi42
Rating: All Ages
Author's summary: A smudge of ink and the story changes. (Spoilers for the PDA The Time Travellers.)
Characters/Pairings: Ian/Barbara, First Doctor
Warnings: none
Word Count: ~ 1,200 words

Recced because: This is heart-breaking and beautiful. The story is actually about another Ian – one from an alternate timeline in the BBC PDA book The Time Travellers. It's a fantastic book, and a fantastic hook for a fic, and we see the options – what could have been, the slight alteration, the smudge of ink, the wedding ring. As always, this Ian is strong, moral, funny, and in love with Barbara through all his iterations. Lovingly written, I think this would be enjoyable without having read the book, because it's so Ian, and his love, and his hope, and his amazingly large heart.

Rec: No More I Love Yous by Suzanne & Butterfly Kisses by Nineveh

This is a two story day because the first one is rather sad so I wanted to follow up with something light and fluffy.

Story: No More I Love Yous
Author: Suzanne
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 1677
Author's Summary: Sometimes you have to make the most difficult decisions.
Characters/Pairings: Charley/Eight
Warnings: Takes place immediately after Absolution.

Recced because: She captures Charley perfectly in this moment. She shows how hurt Charley feels as well as the sense of betrayal. Suzanne also shows why Eight acted like he did at the end. It wasn't because he didn't care, but he cared too much. This story manages to capture both of them perfectly in this rather horrible moment in time.

Story: Butterfly Kisses
Author: Nineveh
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 298
Author's Summary: Charley, Eight, and the butterfly room.
Characters/Pairings: Charley, Eight
Warnings: Fluff, do I need to warn for fluff?

Recced because: This is a short and very sweet look into Charley's thoughts about the Doctor.
