Story:  ours is not a love song (your heart is not the beat)
Author:  biggrstaffbunch
Rating: Teen
Word Count:  2,455
Author's Summary:  "Reunions, you're told, are never easy." Rose comes back to the doctor, but there are things that they both have to re-learn. Five times the doctor wondered if it was worth it, and one time he didn't have to question at all.
Characters/Pairings:  Ten/Rose, Jack
Warnings: non-graphic sex

Recced because:  The language here is gorgeous, full of unexpected and elegant turns of phraseWriting in the second person is risky, but the author here pulls it off skillfully.  It's not your average schmoopy post-Doomsday reunion story.  The Doctor has Rose back, but nothing about this relationship is easy.  The characters' regrets and questions are achingly believable, but so is the whisper of hope at the end.  Bittersweet and beautiful, this story belongs at the top of your reading list right now.

Word Count: 2565
Author's summary: The Jacobites: Wrong but Wromantic? An old-fashioned historical.
Characters/Pairings: Jamie, Victoria, Second Doctor
Warnings: None. You can't have spoilers for history!

Recced because: Not only is this an excellent example of a straight-up historical fic, but it's also a wonderful character study of Jamie. The Doctor, Victoria, and Jamie land in the town of Dumfries twenty years or so after the Jacobite rebellion and Jamie finds out that he's not the only one still bearing a grudge from those days. It comes complete with lovely little historical details too. Go read it.
