Rec: Singing Each to Each

Story: Singing Each to Each
Author: Versaphile
Rating: Adult
Word count: 4770
Author's summary: The Master needs, the Doctor submits, the TARDIS is patient.
Characters/pairings: Tenth Doctor/Simm!Master/TARDIS
Warnings: Graphic violence, graphic sex. Look, it's just graphic, okay.

Recced because: I wasn't sure about reccing this for a long time because, well, it's dark, like, really dark. But it also made me cry and cry so I thought that it deserved a mention. I can't stress how dark this fic is enough, so IT'S DARK. There's not a lot I can say about this because every time I read it, it still leaves me gobsmacked. So, I'm going to give you a little quote which will hopefully give you an idea as to just how dark this gets.

Mutual regeneration. Two Time Lords bonded to each other forever, their regenerations forever entwined, their bio-data a helix of six instead of three. An abomination, forbidden forever.

Like everything on Gallifrey, there was even a formal name for it. It was called The First Kiss.

So, yes, you've got that it's dark now. Good. But I hope that doesn't put people off because it is such a wonderful read. It shows just how deep and involved their relationship is, and whilst I enjoy the more humourous fics for this pairing also, I do like endulging myself in something more from time to time.

rec: Doctor Who And The Rambaldi Enigma

Story: Doctor Who And The Rambaldi Enigma
Author: Rheanna
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 19651
Author's Summary: Retrieving a Rambaldi artefact from the Vatican's vaults is all in a day's work for Sydney Bristow -- until she finds herself transported to fifteenth century Rome. All Sydney wants is to get home, but she's not the only time traveller with an interest in the mysterious Signor Rambaldi...
Characters/Pairings: Third Doctor, Delgado!Master, Sydney Bristow
Warnings: None given.

Recced because: Mostly recced because good crossovers are hard to come by and this one is excellent. The first time I read it I only knew the Alias half, not having seen any Classic Who yet so I know it stands up if you only have a passing familiarity with Doctor Who.

Now that I AM familiar with the Third Doctor, I'm sitting here laughing out loud at how well Rheanna's written him and his relationship with the Master. This fic could have been an episode of the show, it's brilliant. As far as I'm concerned, it IS canon for both shows.

I'm re-reading it now and so far the author's doing a fantastic job of making the Alias characters accessible if you're not familiar with that show.

Mostly recced because how can you resist a fic with this great a sense of humour?
