rec: between ash and reprieve

Story:Between Ash and Reprieve
Author: kiwimouse
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 1294
Author's Summary:An unexpected reunion amid the fires of a planet where time is crawling to a halt.
Characters/Pairings: Ace/Ninth Doctor
Warnings: none

Recced because: I love this story. The language, the atmosphere, the characterizations are all amazing. The more times I read it, the more I love it. I keep catching things I missed. It's dark and bitter and bleak but there's still hope in there somewhere and it's the perfect post-time war meeting of Ace and the Ninth Doctor.

rec: morning has broken

OK, so two Ace stories today after two Fitz stories yesterday (this is all entirely coincidental, I promise), but this is a nice contrast to the apocalyptic nature of yesterday's rec:

Story: Morning Has Broken
Author: Gabriel Chase
Rating: All Ages
Word count: 400
Author's Summary: Ever wonder how to determine when it's morning aboard a time machine? Ace has found a way.
Characters/Pairings: Ace, Benny, Seven
Warnings: None

Recced because: The NAs are often perceived as being full of darkness and companions barely getting along with the Doctor and so on, and it's not a wholly inaccurate picture, but it's not the whole story either. This lovely bit of fluff (and I don't mean that in a derogatory way at all, good fluff is great) shows a lighter side to the classic NA TARDIS team of Seven, Benny, Ace, whilst remaining perfectly in character for all of them.
