'The Wolf and the Phoenix' by Dune

Sorry for the delayed recs again - still ill & too hyper about tonight to think much, so I'm doing two at once again. >.< But still - read, enjoy, review. ^^

Story: The Wolf and the Phoenix
Author: Dune
Rating: All ages
Author's summary: The beginning of a beautiful friendship...
Characters/Pairings: Jack Harkness, The TARDIS on his desk, The (actual) TARDIS, The Tenth Doctor
Warnings: None
Word Count: 5029

Recced because: This is the story of how that little piece of coral/TARDIS got on to the desk of one Jack Harkness. And where it (and he) went from there.
I really really really wish this story were canon. Yes, I know I've said that about nearly every story I've recced this week, but with this one I can't help but repeat myself. ^.~ Dune's painted a wonderful picture of how the TARDIS came to be with Jack, and how they manage to build a relationship nearly as close as the Doctor and his TARDIS. Without spoiling what happens, it has a bittersweet but hopeful ending (the kind I'm fond of, though goodness knows why xD) for all parties involved.

A good read if you're feeling in a contemplative mood and want to distract yourself from the squee of this evening. ^^ But unfortunately, my next rec may well undo that.

'Little by Little, One Travels Far' by rachelbeann

And the second customary Doctor/Rose rec in honour of tonight's viewing. ^^

Story: Little By LIttle, One Travels Far
Author: rachelbeann
Rating: All ages
Author's summary: Rose tries to orient herself. Spoilers for Turn Left.
Characters/Pairings: Rose Tyler, The Tenth Doctor
Warnings: None - but, if you haven't seen it yet (and I'm going to put it in caps just to be on the safe side:) SPOILERS FOR TURN LEFT - IF YOU HAVEN'T SEEN IT/DON'T WANT TO BE SPOILED, BE WARNED. Alright, big red-lights-flashing warning section over now. Moving on...
Word Count: 1151

Recced because: This story is new on the scene, only written a few days ago - I should know, I beta'd it. And the minute I read it, I fell in love with it just as much as I fell in love with the ep 'Turn Left'. Rachelbeann manages to capture the feelings of Rose as - in one of many possibilites floating around fandom at the mo - she jumps between timelines trying to track down the Doctor, but (typically) she never seems to get the right time.

If I could freeze Season 4 right now, this is what I would want to see.

So if you feel like a good ol' Ten/Rose reunion kick before tonight's ep, click on the link above, and enjoy. Oh, and don't forget to review - it'll cheer rachelbeann up while she waits for the ep to download. ^.~

REC: literally, the stars in their eyes

Story: literally, the stars in their eyes
Author: livii
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 1370
Author's summary: The universe isn't big enough for the two of them. AU after Claws of Axos.
Characters/Pairings: Third Doctor/Delgado!Master, Benton
Warnings: none that I can think of

Recced because: It's the Third Doctor and the Delgado!Master trying to do domestic together and failing utterly. It's funny and witty and so very, very true. And because it's by livii, it goes without saying that the character voices are flawless. I could quote you all my favorite lines from this fic, but I'd end up quoting the whole fic. Just read it. It's good and unless you're completely allergic to slash or to Classic Who it will make you smile.

You might think a TARDIS, with its infinity of rooms and being much, much bigger on the inside than it is on the outside, would be plenty big enough for two normal-sized, humanoid Time Lords.

You'd be dead wrong.
