rec: Le Temps Retrouvé

Story: Le Temps Retrouvé
Author: Melengro
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 469
Author's Summary: Ian and Barbara, walking home.
Characters/Pairings: Barbara Wright, Ian Chesterton
Warnings: None, unless you don't know how Ian and Barbara leave the Doctor.

Recced because: The author describes the Ian/Barbara couple as "sickly-sweet", and they are, in a good and satisfying kind of way, the kind of couple that's impossible to break up cos they seem so perfect together. This is Ian/Barbara exploring that old trope "pretend we got married" and making it warm and believable and very very good.

rec: sometimes bodies

Story: sometimes bodies
Author: Significant Owl
Rating: Adult
Word Count: 1520
Author's Summary: She couldn't see the bottom.
Characters/Pairings: Ten/Martha
Warnings: Sex, but not extremely graphic.

Recced because: It was hard to choose just one of Significant Owl's stories to rec; she has a wonderfully lyrical but economical way with words, and excellent characterization. This is set immediately after "42," one of my favorite stories for the Doctor and Martha's dynamic. It follows up on the moments of vulnerability in that episode, and has some really lovely imagery.
