Author's Summary:  Time isn't a straight line. Sometimes it loops back before going forward again. Sometimes it's meant to do that. Most of the time it isn't.
Characters/Pairings:  Nine/Rose/Jack

Recced because:  Suspense?  Check.  Banter?  Check.  Bonding and UST for our favorite trio?  Check.  A smidgen of angst?  Check.  Plot that will have you racing to find out what happens?  Check, check, and more check.  Timey-wimey stuff?  Check. 

On a visit to Mars in the future, Nine, Jack, and Rose become stuck in a Groundhog Day-style time loop that only the two humans remember.  From a wonderfully eerie beginning to an intriguingly (and amusingly) ambiguous ending, this clever story is a fun read.  The characterization is impeccable whether the trio is engaged in flirty banter or exploring the emotional repercussions of living one day over and over with no consequences.  Plan to read the whole thing at once if you can, because the chapter-ending cliffhangers make sure that stopping mid-story is not an option you want to take.

Author's Summary: UFOs! Men in Black! Psychedelic Hippies! Tentacle-Beasts from Dimension X! New Mexico, 1968: Evil lurks beneath the Diablo Mesa as the Doctor and Romana take on the might of the Military-Industrial Complex; the Military-Industrial Complex probably ought to be very scared.
Characters/Pairings: Fourth Doctor, Romana II, K-9
Warnings: Explicit violence, drugs, hippiness

Recced because: This story might as well be a Classic Who serial. It has suspense, creative aliens, entertaining tertiary characters, not to mention delightful Four/Romana chemistry.
