Walks Through Walls, by Eve11

It's actually Monday for me now, but I only just realised I'd missed my final day. This is a good one to end on.

Story: Walks Through Walls
Author: eve11
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 3996
Author's Summary: "Just remember, Doctor. In the midst of the whirlwind, Peladon will always welcome you."
Characters/Pairings: Six, Erimem, Peri, Frobisher, Iris, Mel, Evelyn, Charley (and Eight).
Warning: Spoilers for 'The Bride of Peladon'.

Recced because: It's a beautiful thing, built around a very simple prompt - Six gets Erimem a new cat. This he does, and there's clearly a great kinship between this Doctor and the cat (Five was not so fond of them) and that's great, but eve11 doesn't leave it at just that. Instead, Erimem lives out her life on the slow path and Six shows up with all his companions at various times in her life, and each meting shows us something different about Erimem, who is living her life very well without the Doctor - which is something else to be glad of. I must also admit that anything with Frobisher and/or Iris in it, and done well, is likely to bring me great joy. And this does - though, unlike anything else I've recced - it is somewhat bittersweet.

REC: Escape Plan C Foreman

Hello! It's been over a year since I last recced for Calufrax. I'm very glad to be back.

Story: Escape Plan C Foreman
Author: Skadi
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 687
Author's summary: She is born in a Time Agency prison, in the year 4857.
Characters/Pairings: First Doctor, Susan
Warnings: None

Recced because: There are a number of questions surrounding the secret origin of Susan Foreman: What happened to her parents? Why did she and the Doctor leave Gallifrey? And, perhaps most importantly, on a planet where people are named things like Braxiatel, Rassilon, and Romanadvoratrelundar, how did she end up with so human a name as Susan? This fic contains some of my favorite answers. Short but sweet, it manages to provide a logical and original origin story for Susan and contains a lot of concepts--such as the circumstances surrounding her birth--that I wish I'd come up with myself.
