rec: There's No Way Out Of Here

Story: There's No Way Out Of Here
Author: MrWhat
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 1060
Author's Summary: When you come in, you're in for good.
Characters/Pairings: The Doctor (4th), K-9, Romana I
Warnings: None.

Recced because: This is one of the first Fourth Doctor-era fanfics I ever read, and even now it brings tears of laughter to my eyes. It is side-splitting hilarity told in diary format, and to say any more would spoil the fun, so go on and read!

rec: diverticulum

Story: Diverticulum
Author: Kate Andrews
Rating: I think it used to be "R," because it doesn't have one now. Adult, to be on the safe side?
Word Count: 1675
Author's Summary: Saying it like that felt so much better than saying 'pushed her guts back inside.'
Characters/Pairings: Ten and Rose -- does a bit of tension make it Ten/Rose?
Warnings: Medical squickiness.

Recced because: This is an odd little fic, rated the way it is not for sex or overt violence but because... well, to quote the story, "Three days ago, with her very own gut, [Rose] learned what it felt like when the Doctor repaired your serous membrane and restored the integrity of your peritoneal cavity." They manage to banter about it afterward, almost. I like the shifting balance of funny and serious, the awkwardness of the not-quite-spelled-out emotions, and the (mostly) sweet ending that doesn't quite go where you think it might.
