Rec: The Face Of Boe.

Story: The Face Of Boe.
Author: RamblingRose.
Rating: Teen.
Word Count: 3023
Author's Summary: Jack’s transformation from being Jack Harkness to being the Face of Boe.
Characters/Pairings: Jack Harkness.
Warnings: None.

Recced because: I found this one the other night, shortly after it was approved and read it. It is a very interesting theory on how Jack becomes the Face of Boe. It's funny in bits, disturbing in others, and over all a rather good read. At least I think so. ^^ And it has my favourite thing in Doctor Who! People meeting dear friends, where one of them doesn't know that yet. I'll give you a hint...there's a sheet of skin involved too. ;)

Author's Summary: The Doctor finds out about Evelyn's heart condition... the hard way.
Characters/Pairings: Evelyn Smythe, Sixth Doctor
Warnings: None

Recced because: More Evelyn fic is always a good thing, and this is a particularly good example, showing the relationship between Our Heroes in a nutshell. Six is at his best here, bombastic, rude, and loud while still capable of loving his companions just as deeply as anyone else, and Evelyn herself deals with him with her sort of exasperated affection that somehow turns him adorable. The story itself, dealing as it does with Evelyn's never-specified heart condition, is elegantly researched and written, with excellent use of tension and buildup. Highly recommended.

rec: dinner for two

Title: Dinner for Two
Author: uktechgirl
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 3668
Author's Summary: 'And this, Jamie, is an oyster.' ‘You’ll not fool me, Doctor. That’s a rock, and I’m not eating it.’ The Second Doctor introduces Jamie to French cuisine. Their waiter, Guillaume, may never be the same again.
Characters/Pairings: Second Doctor, Jamie McCrimmon
Warnings: None

Recced because: Fic for the Second Doctor's era is regrettably rare, so any and all gems like this one should be savoured! The author makes a fine French restaurant seem as bizarre and unfathomable to our heroes as any alien planet - hilarity results, of course, but there's a really lovely thread of characterisation running throughout the story. uktechgirl writes both characters flawlessly, and the result is an extremely entertaining read!
