DW Donna halo

Rec: Now or Never

Story: Now or Never
Author: Skyhiatrist
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 2,056
Author's Summary: Surrounded by Daleks, seconds from death, the Doctor throws caution to the wind and decides to let Donna know how he feels.
Characters/Pairings: Ten/Donna
Warnings: None

Recced because: Plot is completely irrelevant in this story; it's all about one snappy, clever, and cracktastic conversation in which the Doctor admits his love for Donna, Donna expresses total shock, and everyone gets a happy ending. (I should note that there's a point near the end of the story where the Doctor nearly does a spit-take. I suggest you avoid drinking liquids while reading this story, unless you want the same thing to happen to you.)


Story: Shadowfall
Author: Duncan Johnson
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 20674
Author's Summary: Whitby, 1900. A place of old ghosts and new friendships. The first in a series of adventures for the Eighth Doctor.
Characters/Pairings: The Doctor (8th)
Warnings: None

Recced because:

This is a cross-over between Doctor Who and Dracula told in epistolary format. How awesome is that? Though, that description might be a little misleading, since this fic takes place some years after the finish of Bram Stoker’s novel. It’s not necessary to have read the book to enjoy the fic (I hadn’t first time). This is a gloriously well-thought out bit of ficy-ness and the series which it starts out it also awesome in the extreme. Eight is at top form as he solves the (very well crafted) mystery, and Duncan Johnson handles his cross-over characters with panache.
