Rec: Perennials

Story: Perennials
Author: koshiroryuu
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 343
Author's Summary: Just an average springtime day for the Doctor and Peri.
Characters/Pairings: Six and Peri
Warnings: none

Recced because: I love entirely dialogue stories, and this one is pitch-perfect. It's a short one, from whoniverse1000, but the tone and character voices are flawless for a Six and Peri-era scene. I especially like how it plays up Peri's knowledge of botany. A fun quick read.

Rec: An Unexpected Education

Story: An Unexpected Education

Author's Summary: Over the course of a year, a scientific adviser falls in love for possibly the first time. It's most inconvenient.
Characters/Pairings: Liz/Brig, Mike Yates, Sergeant Benton, The Third Doctor
Warnings: None

Recced because: This story, along with it's companion piece No More Than A Feeling, is an excellent look at Liz Shaw's all too brief time at UNIT. It tallies perfectly with canon, and fleshes out what we saw onscreen in a beautifully believable way. I struggled to choose between the two, but, in the end, my love for all things Liz won out. (The other story - which views events from the Brig's perspective - is well worth a look as well, of course.)
