rec: Walking the Labyrinth by lilacfree

Title: Walking the Labyrinth.
Author: LilacFree.
Characters/Pairings: 4th Doctor, Adric, K9, Tegan Jovanka, the Master (Ainsley).
Rating: All ages.
Warnings: None.
Word Count: 3419.
Summary: Doctor who? Has any one else ever walked into the TARDIS without having met the Doctor? This story is an attempt to walk in Tegan's high-heeled shoes. It follows canon from the 4th Doctor episode 'Logopolis' fairly closely, with a couple of additions.
Follows my story 'First Step' and is part of the same series. It also draws from the drabble 'He Laughs'.

Recced Because: Taking a couple of scenes from Logopolis where not much happens other than Tegan exploring, getting lost and frightened, in the TARDIS before she has met the Doctor and turns it into an effective character study. I like to see this both as Tegan working through her fears but also as a study of the Doctor by means of the TARDIS. The author makes use to two meanings for the labyrinth: meditation tool, and location for the Theseus and the Minotaur myth, with the Master as the Minotaur.
Um... yay?

Well, this is my last review. You can all breathe a sigh of relief now. :D

I figured I would finish off this week with a piece of pure fluff. Albeit, long fluff - but definitely fluff.

In honor of Christmas, which really is just around the corner, I bring you 'And My True Love Gave To Me,' by dettiot.

It takes place during season two, during a random Christmas that 10 and Rose decided to share. It all begins with the Doctor wants to hear rose singing Christmas carols and spirals to this marvelous bit of cavity inducing frivolity.

From Christmas shopping, to opening presents in jim-jams, this story takes us through a remarkably uneventful holiday in the lives of Rose and The Doctor.

Of course there is some UST, but most of what happens is just fluff, as the two of them discover their feelings for each other.

Enjoyable, it won't spark any brain cells, but it will certainly bring a smile to your face.
