Rating: G
Word Count: 915
Author's Summary: You never forget your first love. The Doctor is no different. Set pre-series.
Characters/Pairings: First Doctor
Warnings: None

Recced because: Rickmaniac101 captures the essence of the Doctor as a young man -- his enthusiasm and sheer child-like glee at discovering a new world and being entranced by its inhabitants.
Doctor Who - Ace/Hex OTP

rec: Catalyst

Story: Catalyst
Author: nostalgia
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 1286
Author's Summary: "So in 1982, the Doctor becomes, for a week, a chemistry teacher."
Characters/Pairings: Ace, Ten
Warnings: none

Recced because: I love stories with criss-crossing timelines (very wibly-wimey timey-wimey, before Moffat made it cool), and Ace's interactions with Ten are spot-on. The Doctor is the same person with Ace that he was / will be, and this story is both painful and hopeful at the same time - just like the best of Doctor Who.
