First  recce!  Sorry it is a bit late.

Companion Auditions
Author: Minion
Rating: Child
Word Count: 1,691
Author's Summary: The Tenth Doctor, currently travelling alone (for an unspecified reason; no spoilers), advertises for a new companion, but finds the quest more difficult than he had anticipated.
Characters/Pairings: Tenth Doctor, Lots of OCs
Warnings: None

Recced because: It is really, really cute. The idea that the Doctor would audition for a companion is not entirely original but the author carries it off so well you don't care. Ten is wriiten very well and is at his most adorable. It is very funny and all the OCs are written very well.

Rating: Adult
Word Count:
Author's Summary: The Doctor, Adric, Tegan and Nyssa arrive in Regency England and are rescued from a mysterious bone-chilling mist by Tanas, the local land owner.
Adric, Nyssa, Tegan Jovanka, The Doctor (5th
Warnings: Explicit
violence, sexual situations, dark themes.

Recced because: This fic used to be under a different name and was abandoned by the author. I loved it so much that I begged asked her to finish it.

The characterisation is near perfect and Adric is painted especially well. There is a brilliant air of mystery created and you genuinely can't wait for the next chapter.  It is very dark and it is not for the faint hearted however it is not smut for smuts sake (not that there is anything necessarily wrong with that). It is a really good, long, plotty tale to get your teeth into.

Author's summary: Theta and Koschei reap the benefits of complete miscommunication.
Characters/pairings: Theta/Koschei
Warnings: Graphic sex

Recced because: This is labelled as PWP, but there's a lot more to it than that; it's certainly the most in depth PWP I've read in a long while, and it has the most fantastic dialogue, and yet it has the most simple premise: Theta and Koschei are studying, then they have sex, then they go back to studying. It's simple yet perfect. And the sex? Well, it's just so in character with Theta so eager to please in any way he can.

Story: Four Times Martha Met Sarah Jane And One Time She Didn't Quite
Author: Wojelah
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 2405
Author's Summary: The first time Martha Jones meets Sarah Jane Smith, neither of them knows it. To be fair, Martha's just survived near-asphyxiation on the Moon and Tish is fussing and there's a thousand reporters everywhere, and Sarah Jane's really more interested in the odd puncture wounds on Mr. Stoker's neck and inclined to avoid anyone who might shoo her away - which is to say, they both have rather a lot on their minds.
Characters/Pairings: Martha Jones, Sarah Jane Smith
Warnings: None given.

Recced because: I know I'm not the only person here who LOVES a good 'Year That Never Was' fic and this is one of my favourites. I'm also a sucker for companions meeting each other and this one's fantastic and completely plausible for that, too. As a matter of fact, given 'Turn Left' this fic just became even more plausible. Sarah Jane and Martha are both spot on and Wojelah makes FANTASTIC use of a sometimes tired trope, the Five Things and it's just brilliant, really. Each situation could slot easily into canon unless 'The Stolen Earth' has Russelled/Jossed it somehow.
