Story: Lacunae
Author: kenazfiction (Kenaz)
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 4697
Author's Summary: There are many things Jack has forgotten.
Pairing: Jack/Ianto
Warnings: None

Recced because: Jack/Ianto is a little under-represented as a ship here! And this is one of those stories that makes me want to pack up and go home. Kenaz writes amazing well, and even better her grasp on the characters is perfect, in that age-old tradition of fandom where we delve deeper into the stories than the show ever does. Because 'Exit Wounds' leaves Jack in an unimaginably horrible place, and Lacunae picks it up and deals with it head-on whilst never descending to melodrama. And though this is Jack's story, Ianto's thoughts and feelings are enormously vivid here too, and the end result is a story that makes me ache so beautifully for both of them.

Story: Those Left Behind
Author: atraphoenix
Rating: All Ages

Author's Summary: ”You don’t need to feel sorry for me,” said Liz. “Life on Earth can be an adventure too, you know.”
Characters/Pairings: Sarah Jane Smith/Liz Shaw
Warnings: None

Recced because: I love the Third Doctor era, I love femslash, and I love Liz Shaw (and Sarah Jane too). This story works for me because the author does a great job of capturing Sarah and Liz's opposing attitudes toward the Doctor and what life without him means to them.

A small taste...Collapse )

Story: Friends and Memories
Author: smallearthcat
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 713
Author's Summary: The Doctor visits an old friend.
Characters/Pairings: Eighth Doctor/Harry Sullivan
Warnings: None

Recced because: This is a pairing that honestly never occurred to me, but works beautifully. And the set-up made me laugh out loud, given certain tropes in the EDAs. The whole thing is absolutely adorable.
