rec: the great bikini incident (the key to time remix)

Story: The Great Bikini Incident (The Key to Time Remix)
Author: Doyle
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 1692
Author's Summary: Dawn Summers is suspicious of the three electricity inspectors outside her sister’s Rome apartment. Buffy crossover.
Characters/Pairings: Jack Harkness, Rose Tyler, Ninth Doctor
Warnings: None

Recced because: It uses the most wonderfully obvious possible connections between the Whoniverse and the Buffyverse and is epic amounts of fun. The dialogue is brilliant, the storyline is great and it made me laugh out loud. I would dearly love for this to have been canon, and am rather sad that it has since been contradicted by the Buffy comics. Doyle used to write a lot in Buffy fandom, so Dawn's voice is perfect and her descriptions of the Doctor and Jack shouldn't be missed! And neither, for that matter, should the truly awesome ending.

rec: the miseducation of romanadvoratrelundar (or two cobblemice in one snug hole)

Story: The Miseducation of Romanadvoratrelundar (or Two Cobblemice in One Snug Hole)
Author: Biichan
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 857
Author's Summary: His future self's words were blunt and to the point: “Seduce Romanadvoratrelundar.”
Characters/Pairings: Irving Braxiatel, Romana I, Braxiatel/Romana I
Warnings: Slight spoilers for Gallifrey: Lies.

Recced because: I had another rec lined up for today, but I read this this morning and knew immediately that I was going to rec this instead. It has absolutely spot-on perfect characterization for both Romana and Braxiatel and makes the pairing and the fact that it could have happened this way feel not only plausible, but undeniable. Simple, direct and very funny, it's another fic that has instantly entered my personal canon. Which seems to be my theme for this week. ;) If you've listened to the Big Finish Gallifrey audio series, you really do need to read this!
