REC: Most Likely Kill You In The Morning

Story: Most Likely Kill You In The Morning
Author: hotelmontana
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 5514
Author's summary: Rose decides that, if it’s the clothes that make the man, she’ll try on a pinstriped suit.
Characters/Pairings: Rose, Mickey, Tenth Doctor, Ninth Doctor, Jackie Tyler, Romana II
Warnings: Goes AU from The Girl In The Fireplace.

Recced because: It's not unusual to find AU fic where the alternate universe in question branches off by having the Doctor never find his way back from 18th century France at the end of The Girl In The Fireplace. In fact, there have been at least two other AU fic with the same initial premise already recced in Calufrax (and I should know given that I was the reccer for one of them.) All things considered, it's quite likely that some of you are asking why I would decide to rec another fic with the same beginning. The answer is quite simple: because it's different from both the previous recs and it's good. Well-written and nicely plotted and just plain good. If you only read one rec from me this week, read this one.

Rose and Mickey eventually find their way back to the twentieth century, but the Doctor's not waiting for them when they get there. In fact, he doesn't seem to be anywhere in time and space at all, no matter how hard Rose looks and it's only at the end that she finds the Doctor, only the Doctor isn't what she expected and neither is Rose herself anymore.

Rec: The Moment Has Been Prepared For

Story: "The Moment Has Been Prepared For"
Author: Lurky McLurklurk
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 797
Author's summary: " A few decades in the future, Donna Noble's granddaughter comes to visit her one last time. (Journey's End fixit, after a fashion.)"
Characters/Pairings:  Donna Noble, OC
Warnings:  "Journey's End" spoilers.

Recced because: Not only does this story "fix" JE, as it says on the tin, it references Classic Who in a knowledgeable and affectionate manner that I simply love.  Moving, funny, hopeful, and a perfect blend of old and new.  All in under 1,000 words!  (Yes, I've already recced this in my personal journal, so maybe I'm cheating by reccing it again here, but I think this story deserves it!)
