Recced because: A week and a half ago I joined the Mod Team at Teaspoon and I'm very glad I did, because working the Queue has led me to finding so many fics that I might never have noticed otherwise. This is one of them. I spent the weekend after validating this with my fingers crossed hoping that no one would beat me to reccing this here. I think this fic is that good.

Wonderfulchild takes one of the theories surrounding the season finale--I'm sure most of you have heard it before, it dates back to last autumn and should be fairly widespread by now--and she runs with it to the bitter end. This is a theory that is almost always played for laughs when it winds up in fic. Wonderfulchild treats it with utter seriousness. She makes it work with canon, in fact she makes it work so well that by the end of the fic I found myself half-convinced that it was really going to happen onscreen.

This fic is magnificent and heart-breaking. Go read it.

Rec: 'Salva Nos' by Aenaria

Hello hello hello! Seems I'm one of the reccers this week, so I'm going to be engulfing you in Doctor/Rose, Bad Wolf fics, and maybe some old school too.

There we go. ^^
I'll start out with one of my personal favourites:

Story: Salva Nos
Author: aenaria
Rating: All ages
Author's summary: It isn't about how he always saves her, or how she always saves him. It's about how they save each other.
Characters/Pairings: Tenth Doctor, Rose, OC. Ten/Rose
Warnings: None
Word Count: 10,259

Recced because: Yes, it's kid!fic. And yes, I know many out there despise kid!fic. But this specific piece of kid!fic is just so beautiful you could imagine it were real. It has a believable Rose, a believable setting, and a believable kid. Charlie is just brilliant. If you need a pick-me-up after a long day, or just a dose of happy reunion!fluff with a dash of angst and h/c, this is definitely one for you. There is also a sequel/prequel called 'Five Nights' which acts as another dose of goodness.

Plus, 'Salva Nos' is set in Italy. What could be bad about a fic with Italy in it? I mean, come on! ^^
