Story: No Trace of Existence.
Author: xwingace.
Rating: All ages.
Word Count: 2244
Author's Summary: Jack goes to check on a man answering the description of Queen Victoria's Doctor. He finds a schoolteacher.
Characters/Pairings: Jack Harkness, The Doctor (10th)
Warnings: None.

Recced because: We know Jack got stranded for a whole century before meeting the Doctor again in Utopia...right? This little vignette says otherwise. It is a sweet little story where Jack uses his Torchwood connections to go investigate a teacher who suddenly appeared out of nowhere. I personally love stories where characters come across each other in different times and places, and one might not know the other. This fits my little fetish perfectly!

Author's Summary: A brief look at Susan and what it's like being a teenaged alien on Earth.
Characters/Pairings: Susan Foreman
Warnings: None.

Recced because: It's an unfortunately short but really lovely look at Susan Foreman, and why she loves Earth so much. Susan doesn't get much attention in fanfiction, perhaps because her tenure was so short and so early, but there are still so many unanswered questions about her background and her life that even a short piece like this can really illuminate her character. LilacFree also has a knack for interesting turns of phrase that I'll let you discover yourself.

Story: Clyde Langer: Man from Mars
Author: livii
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 3,587
Author's Summary: The year was 2015. Clyde Langer had a degree in Economics and Management. He needed a job. Something with aliens would work just fine.
Characters/Pairings: Clyde Langer/Luke Smith, Maria Jackson, Harry Sullivan/Martha Jones, Sarah Jane Smith/John Benton, Emily Chaudry/Francis Currie
Warnings: None

Recced because: For one thing, there is not nearly enough fanfiction that features the characters from The Sarah Jane Adventures, and there is not nearly enough fanfiction that features the characters from Big Finish's UNIT audios, and there is not nearly enough fanfiction that features characters from both, and draws on Doctor Who's long history with such precision and excellent characterisation and makes it all so fun. Clyde Langer's future spells itself out here, with the tongue-in-cheek humour and occasional moments of real profundity that suit him so well.
