Author's Summary: Hex gets separated from the Doctor and stumbles upon another Doctor.
Characters/Pairings: Hex, Seven, Ace, Ten (vaguely Ace/Hex)
Warnings: None

A rather adorable ficlet in which Hex has a bad day, has an encounter with Ten, and finds a bit of a silver lining to getting caught in a dimensional storm. Despite the brevity of the story, each character is captured perfectly.

Author's Summary: She's so like his Ace, and yet so different. The duplicate Doctor meets the parallel universe version of an old companion.
Characters/Pairings: Ace/Handy
Warnings: none

Recced because:

It’s a story about Handy and alt!Ace which is enough to recommend it in and of itself. The characters are perfectly rendered, as is the notDoctor’s varying states of confusion, guilt, and longing as he realises the strength and intelligence of this woman who is not Ace and who never had the dubious benefit of his tutelage as a teenager. He teaches her about the stars, and she teaches him about life.

Oh yeah, there are also lots of explosions (in a story about Ace, who could expect anything less?)
