REC: Stray Birds of Summer

Story: Stray Birds of Summer
Author: livii
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 1781
Author's summary: "The Doctor, despite how he shows off, can’t do quite everything, you know." The TARDIS is hiding some secrets.
Characters/Pairings: Martha/Rose
Warnings: Sureality. Lovely, lovely sureality.

Recced because: Crazy, surreal, beautiful femmeslash where Martha wanders into an unfamiliar part of the TARDIS and meets one of the ghosts in the machine. The prose is very dreamlike and it might all be a dream after all or a dream of a memory—and if someone is dreaming it, who is? The Doctor? The TARDIS? Martha? There's no definite answer to any of it, just a bit of birdsong, and that's all the better. I've only recently discovered this fic but I already know it'll be one I'll be coming back to again and again.
New DW: Ten/Donna glomp!

Rec: Autumn Days That Make You Feel Sad

Drat, I never seem to manage all seven recs, do I? And I never got around to a classic series one... ah well, the world needs moar Donna!fic anyway. ;)


Story: Autumn Days That Make You Feel Sad
Author: sparrow
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 1246
Author's Summary: Sometimes, you have to sacrifice for the sake of a friend. Donna knows this very well. Must be 4x13 compliant to ride. :)
Characters/Pairings: Donna Noble, the Tenth Doctor
Warnings: None.

Recced because: One of my favorite post-"Journey's End" fics. A interesting twist on events, excellent Donna introspective and a vague but hopeful ending. Quite lovely.
prepare for awesomeness

Rec: A Plan With One Obvious Flaw by Netgirl_y2k


Story:  A Plan With One Obvious Flaw
Author: Netgirl_y2k
Rating:  All Ages
Word Count:  978
Author's Summary:  A female Time Lord, the one thing that had been missing from his cunning plan to repopulate Gallifrey.
Characters/Pairings: Ten/Donna
Warnings: Journey's End spoilers, crack!

Recced because:  The combination of Ten, Donna, and mating will never not be funny, but this story is particularly fabulous.   The comic timing is impeccable, the voices are spot-on, and the ending is wonderfully strange.  I laughed so hard I nearly injured myself at several lines.  Say what you will about Journey's End, but it's led to some brilliant crack.  Read this story, but keep beverages away or your keyboard will be sorry.
