doctor who - romana II

rec: the choice

Story: The Choice
Author: jinxed_wood
Rating: All ages.
Word Count: 1298
Author's Summary: [Highlander Crossover] For a moment, as he took the boy’s head, it seemed that the heavens were ripped open, and Methos, through the howling, bleeding pain of the quickening, was almost sure he'd seen something on the other side...
Characters/Pairings: Romana II, Methos (from Highlander)
Warnings: It's a bit sad?

Recced because: I will cheerfully admit I've never seen any Highlander of any form ever but I still love this fic. It's so simple. Romana meets Methos, presumably after the Time War and it's really rather sad and lovely. They go well together. Their reactions to each other are great and her sadness over the Time War is palpable. (Sadly, I fail at planning a little and decided to pile on all my vaguely angsty recs to coincide with the finale.)

I imagine you would get even more out of it than I have if you are familiar with Highlander.

Anyway, that's me done for the week. It's been an absolute pleasure reccing to you all! :)

Author's Summary:
Characters/Pairings: Spoilers for series four up until Midnight
Warnings: All Ages

Recced because: This is another Midnight inspired fic but it tells the story of the Doctor's and Donna's relationship. Donna is my favourite companion and I really love the take the writer has taken on this. She writes their relationship so beautifully but also realistically.

In light of the finale of series four it is heartbreaking and it made me cry.

Remember to review if you read it.

Rec: Girls' Night Out, Girls' Night In

Story: Girls' Night Out, Girls' Night In
Author: Lurky McLurklurk
Rating: Adult
Word count: 2634
Author's summary: Martha and Donna get to know each other better. Set in the closing section of The Poison Sky
Characters/pairings: Martha/Donna, Tenth Doctor
Warnings: None

Recced because: Well, this is another pairing that I simply can't get enough of at the moment and I was delighted when I saw this posted one day. This story is deliciously hot. End of. However, I have to say that the last section is my favourite: the 'morning after scene' that gets left out of so many fics that just concentrate on 'the night before'. Oh, and as for the ending, well, I don't want to spoil it but fans of the Third Doctor era will love the ending. ;)

Recce: Twentyish Lies Told To Rose Tyler

Last Recce! I hope you've enjoyed some of my recommendations despite the technical hitches.

Story: Twentyish Lies Told To Rose Tyler
Author: nostalgia
Rating: All Ages
Word Count:
Author's Summary: "Please select from the following options."
Characters/Pairings: Tenth Doctor
Warnings: None

Recced because:
I've posted some rather series stories and I want to end it with some fun crack!fic.

The fic is (as the titles says) twentish lies that the Doctor told Rose, each of which is hilarious and will brighten up your day. It is difficult to pick a favourite but I love number ten: 10. By an unusual quirk of time travel, I am both of my own parents.

Please leave feedback if you read.
