doctor who - romana/leela manip

rec: second fiddle

Story: Second Fiddle
Author: LizBee
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 1114
Author's Summary: It's a perfectly normal (that is to say, disastrous) day for the TARDIS crew, except that Martha finds she might be playing second fiddle. Again.
Characters/Pairings: Martha Jones, Romana II, Tenth Doctor, Leela, Martha/Romana, Romana/Leela
Warnings: None

Recced because: I've been resisting reccing this one for ages and I really don't know why. It's possibly the first Classic Who fic I ever read yet I keep coming back to it again and again and it always makes me happy. It's actually partly responsible for how much I adore Romana II and it has wonderful Martha voice. I suppose I'm reccing this one for the same reason I've recced a lot of others this week, it has several lines that you come across and every time you just think "...Yes, exactly" and that, to me, is marvelous and a big part of what a good fic ought to do. I dunno. It has Romana/Martha AND Romana/Leela, ALL IN ONE FIC. What more could you want, except for it to be longer?

Anyway, that's all from me. I've had a lovely time reccing this week, sorry again for being a bit inconsistent!
That's our Mickey and why we love him.

Rec: Few of days, full of trouble by Rivrea

Story: Few of days, full of trouble
Author: Rivrea
Rating: All Ages
Author's summary: Five things that never happened to Mickey Smith and Ace McShane.
Characters/Pairings: Ace, Mickey (some Ace/Mickey)
Warnings: none
Word Count: 1000 words

Recced because: Five pitch-perfect little ways that Mickey and Ace could have (and should have) met; each is a gorgeous little slice of possibility. From a thirtyish woman in some retro punk outfit, who’s chain-smoking in the corner, to prison breaks and time-hoppers, to the idea of Ace joining the Ten, Rose, and Mickey TARDIS crew, to kissing in the Trevi fountain, the writing is lovely and intriguing, with terrific construction that plays with time in all the right ways, and is just delightful as a whole.
