REC: Imaginary

Story: Imaginary
Author: Dune
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 712
Author's summary: Deep inside the Citadel, there is a lonely room, forever holding a lonely Time Lord.
Characters/Pairings: Tenth Doctor
Warnings: Spoilers for S4.

Recced because: Short but powerful, this fic takes a line from The Stolen Earth and follows its implications it to a conclusion that feels both natural and disturbing. In the author's note, Dune says she isn't sure if it's an AU to New Who or if it's set sometime after S4. In truth, the very ambiguity only adds to the story's strength. I feel like I'm damning with faint praise, but it's a very good, very thought-provoking fic and one I think everyone ought to read.

rec: Out of Reach by schildkroet

Story: Out of Reach
Author: by schildkroet
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 610
Author's Summary: Jamie tries to remember.
Characters/Pairings: James McCrimmon, The Doctor (2nd)
Warnings: You may cry.

Recced because: Despite its brevity, this story will stick with you long after you've read it. I read it first right after Journey's End, and the parallels to Donna's ending made me get pretty disgustingly emotional. Jamie's voice is wonderful (and isn't clogged up with unnecessary accenting) and the brief story flows beautifully. I really like this story.
