Story: Cartographers
Author: calapine
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 2892
Author's Summary: Former companions during the latest invasion. (Set during tSE/JE.)
Characters/Pairings: Barbara Wright/Ian Chesterton, Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart, Harry Sullivan, Jo Grant, Liz Shaw, Polly Wright/Ben Jackson, Ancelyn/Winifred Bambera
Warnings: none given

Recced because: This is a great shapshot of some Classic companions as the Daleks are at it again in tSE/JE. The pacing and characterization are stellar; it's insightful, funny, and ultimately delves into what being the Doctor's influence is really about. This has sailed straight into my personal canon.

Recced because: Torchwood fandom produces some excellent fanfiction. Unfortunately, it produces some rubbish as well. Although sadly a little short, this fic encapsulates the nature of badfic perfectly, and will make you laugh out loud.
