rec: without a hitch

I'm so sorry for the gap in the recs. I had some health-related problems earlier in the week, but I'm fine now!

Story: Without a Hitch
Author: nonelvis
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 2652
Author's Summary: Nine wakes up in Vegas married to one of his former companions.
Characters/Pairings: Ninth Doctor/Sarah Jane Smith

Recced because: It's both awesomely fun and funny, with brilliant Nine voice. Lovely interactions between Nine and Sarah Jane, which make me really wish they'd met in canon at some point. It's set post School Reunion for Sarah Jane and in the gap at the end of Rose for Nine, and fits nicely into canon if you want it to. Which I do. ;D
doctor who - five/nyssa/tegan

rec: things to do before you die

Story: Things To Do Before You Die
Author: Doyle
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 1166
Author's Summary: "Take two pills, get a friend to whisk you off to another planet, and call me in the morning..." Tegan Jovanka lives. (Big Finish audios continuity)
Characters/Pairings: Nyssa, Tegan Jovanka.
Warnings: Spoilers for 'Caves of Androzani', 'The Gathering' and 'Circular Time'. Nothing major, if you're familiar with the basic plot summary of those you're fine.

Recced because: 'The Gathering' is quite a heart-breaking audio and this makes it ALL better? Yeah, that's my 'recced because', pretty much. This fic's just got lovely, lovely Tegan and Nyssa voice. I'm actually having a really hard time coming up with what to say, this fic manages to do so much with so few words, you get this perfect picture of what Tegan, Nyssa AND the Fifth Doctor's lives have all been like, both when they were together and after they parted ways, it's brilliant and if you're a Fivey fan this one's not to be missed. :D
