Rec: Cartography by eponymous_rose

Another fun week – thanks! And after six days of femslash, let's close out with one gen. :)

Story: Cartography
Author: eponymous_rose
Rating: All Ages
Author's summary: A map is a symbolic representation that highlights relationships between elements of space. Some analogies write themselves.
Characters: Ace, Hex, Seventh Doctor
Warnings: none
Word Count: 1463

Recced because: This is just the most darling and wonderful piece of work; each character is drawn so perfectly it blew me away, and their interactions are absolutely adorable. From Seven's cheating to Hex passing on secrets, tied up with Ace making a choice that makes the already fabulous story even better, this is packed full of aliens, adventures, friendship, and just that right hint that we're being told a bigger story, and that the characters are, as the story says, finding their own directions.

Rec: Downtime

Story: Downtime
Author: cryptile
Rating: None given
Word Count: 4418
Author's Summary: So much for leaving at Christmas . . .
Characters/Pairings: Jackie Tyler, Mickey Smith, Rose Tyler, The Doctor (10th), The TARDIS
Warnings: None given

Recced because: No second chances? A masterful story, at turns touching, chilling, and humorous. Set between "The Christmas Invasion" and "New Earth," it deals with a newly-regenerated Ten fixing the TARDIS while Earth-bound with the Tyler family. There's a beautiful through-line about change and the development of the new Tenth Doctor.

Rec: Captain Jack's Adventures in Fanfic

Story: Captain Jack's Adventures in Fanfic
Author: RedScharlach
Rating: Adult
Word Count: 683
Author's Summary: Jack can't tell you what he's thinking right now, but he CAN try to write it down afterwards, in copious and explicit detail. What a shame he sucks at summaries...
Characters/Pairings: Ten/Donna/Ten, Gwen, Jack/Ianto
Warnings: Explicit sex

Recced because: It's my last day of recs, so it's time for crackfic! The kinkmeme at sizeofthatthing has produced some outstanding fic, but none funnier than this one. Written for a prompt based partially on Jack's line from "Journey's End" – "I can't tell you what I'm thinking right now" – this story is rude, crude, and made me laugh so hard I cried. Jack is an appalling fanfic author – his prose couldn't be more purple, he sticks author's notes wherever he feels like it, and he uses similes that are perhaps best described as "unique" and "unforgettable" in that "dear God, how could someone possibly write this" sort of way. Especially recommended for any fans or members of the fanficrants and weepingcock communities.
