rec: Syntax of Things

Hi again, I'm eve11 and I'm your recc-er for this week. I've got a great list of stories to rec this week and I am so excited to share some of my favorites! I've got some fantastic adventure stories lined up with a variety of different doctors, along with a few other genres. So, to start off:

Story: Syntax of Things
Author: ClocketPatch
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 42952
Author's Summary: Seven, Ace and Hex go for a holiday in the jungle. Of course, these things never turn out quite as planned.
Characters/Pairings: Seven, Ace and Hex
Warnings: Mild swearing

Recced because: I love stories where the place becomes almost a character in itself. In this story, ClocketPatch brings the jungle to life, and populates it with a set of original characters who could carry the story on their own. And on top of that, the Doctor, Ace and Hex are in perfect character. The Doctor is enigmatic yet empathetic, and Ace and Hex engage in the usual teasing banter, though you can also see the seed of something more, especially as the plot unfolds. It's a timey-wimey mystery, with action and cliff-hangers, original characters and a new twist on some old villains, that unfolds just like a brand new Big Finish adventure. Go, read it!
