Warnings: None.

Recced because: This is one of those stories that I honestly can't believe hasn't been recced before as it is utterly, utterly brilliant. I'd go so far as to say it's my favorite Master story. The author gets him. But not only that, she manages to make him even more complex than he already was, which is a pretty monumental feat in and of itself. I am not exaggerating in the slightest when I say this is an absolute must read.

Story: Five Times the Doctor Wanted To Kiss Martha Jones In 1969 [And One Time He Did]
Author: radiantbaby
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 6255
Author's Summary: A 1969 fic that pretty much does as it says on the tin.
Characters/Pairings: Tenth Doctor, Martha Jones
Warnings: None

Recced because: Despite being a shippy fic, this fic makes a wonderful character study of the Tenth Doctor. radiantbaby manages to turn fluff into something that isnt just about the ship can be enjoyed by people that don't ship the two. The story fits really well into canon and is beautifully written, the description in particular is amazing. And I'm a sucker for Five times and 1969 fic.
