Rec: The Wooded World of Worlds

Hello everyone! I'm back for another round of reccing. A mix of crossovers and other pieces of excellence.

Starting off with one that I didn't rec last time because it wasn't up on Teaspoon at that time (though it had been posted elsewhere last year).

Story: The Wooded World of Worlds
Author: ladyyueh
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 1366
Author's Summary: There exists a place where trees grow tall. [Narnia/DW Crossover]
Characters/Pairings: The Doctor (9th)
Warnings: None

Recced because: One wouldn't think that Narnia is the kind of thing that could be crossed over with Doctor Who, or if they were, then the result would be silly. But this story captures them both where they intersect best -- in the deep and the mythical. Here we have the 9th Doctor, post-Time War, trying to lose himself in the peace and forgetfulness of the Wood Between the Worlds... and then he is visited by a Lion. This resonates so well; sad and beautiful, with a touch of hope.

Rec: Decanted Memories

Story: Decanted Memories
Author: amberite
Rating: all ages
Word Count: 6576
Author's Summary: The past is best served as a flaming cocktail. Takes place between "The Doctor Dances" and "Boomtown." And when you think you’re swimming to the surface You’re swimming - straight down -- Laurie Anderson, “Freefall”
Characters/Pairings: Nine/Rose/Jack
Warnings: BDSM
Recced because: This story about Jack's memory, the reality and unreality of the TARDIS, and the power of friendship, is remarkable, and beautifully told. Jack's and Rose's conversations are pure pleasure to read, because they tell the reader so much about the characters - and about the way people learn about each other. The writing is dense, full of wisdom, mesmerizing images, and a solid story that still manages to shimmer with beauty.
