Most of my recs this week will be crossovers; this one isn't, not exactly, although it includes elements of two shows from the Doctor Who universe:

Story: Cause and Effect
Author: Selena
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 1956
Author's Summary: Luke isn’t quite sure of how to handle his rescue. How did the Doctor know when to save him?
Characters/Pairings: Clyde Langer, Luke Smith, Mr. Smith, Other Character(s), Rani Chandra, Sarah Jane Smith
Warnings: None

Spoilers for The End of Time and episodes of The Sarah-Jane Adventures

Recced because: Most people would just be grateful if the Doctor saved their lives. Luke worries about it, in a wonderful display of existential angst and dawning apprehension. The story is simply a beautiful character study in which Luke gradually realises that his rescue could be a very bad thing, compares his rescue to the many deaths that the Doctor didn't prevent, and tries to work out how he can still be alive without damaging the timeline.
