Rec: She'll Be Superb

Story: She'll Be Superb
Author: livii
Rating: All ages
Word count: 1673
Author's summary: Romana's improved upon the Doctor's technique by quite a bit.
Characters/pairings: Romana II/Tegan, Romana II/Rose, Romana II/Ace, Romana II/Jo, Romana II/Zoe, 9th Doctor, Romana I
Warnings: None

Recced because: It's a story about a Time Lord travelling the universe in their TARDIS picking up human women. Sounds familiar, doesn't it? Only it's not the Doctor it's Romana. Livii's Romana is fun, very Time Lord-y (yes, that's a word) and just great to read. Plus we see little snippets of what life is like travelling with some of the Doctor's other wonderful companions, not forgetting herself. Multi-era stories are my absolute favourite, and this is a great example of why I love them.

Author's Summary: 40th century Echlin has one of the most famous centres of time travel research in the galaxy. Rose and Ace have some nitro-9, a bronze medal in gymnastics (under-7s category) and a couple of really enormous false moustaches. No contest, really...
Characters/Pairings: Ace McShane, Rose Tyler
Warnings: None given. (This is becoming a trend...)

Recced because: It's FUNNY. Rose and Ace, if you think about it, would be FANTASTIC a team and this fic showcases exactly that. There's cross-dressing, ridiculous plans, the inevitable Doctor comparing, "Lots of planets have a Scotland", there just isn't any bad. This fic is really all about the hilarious exchanges between Ace and Rose as they try to rescue their respective Doctors. Look, there's not really a lot more I need to say about this fic beyond it's very very funny so here, have a snippet again.

...Did I mention the funny? Everyone needs a good laugh midweek!
