who

one more time, by curuchamion

Salutations to all, my name is Primsong and I’m pleased to be taking a turn at sharing a few enjoyable or admirable fics with you this week. All will feature classic Doctors in one way or another and there will be a mix of light and dark with a bent rather more towards the amusing. I hope you will enjoy them. That said, let’s go to our first rec and a smile for your Monday.

Recced because: Yes, it's merely bite-sized, but I kept going back to it and found myself actually giving it a ponder - which is a sign of something worth sharing (There'll be longer ones coming).

This is one of those little pieces that you find yourself relating to any comprehending person in the room as you might a favorite joke. A light must-read for anyone possessing both an appreciation for classic Who and a sense of humour; in truth, this short vignette would be completely at home in some type of Whovian joke book and the punchline is completely worth its inclusion. Even better is the way the author goes beyond mere word play and makes the reader give real thought to whether this really could have happened, for in spite of it being essentially crack it is surprisingly feasible.

Curuchamion is a relatively new writer in the fandom but has shown much promise in her imaginative writings thus far. I truly look forward to seeing what else she will bring us as she finds her wings.

REC: Superb (The Sex-O-Matic Venus Freak remix)

So Primsong has already done her first rec, but since it's still Sunday in my time zone, I figured I'd do my last. And since Remix Redux just opened their archives today, I thought I'd rec a remix done two years ago (which is coincidentally the first time I participated.)

Story: Superb (The Sex-O-Matic Venus Freak remix)
Author: LizBee
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 1913
Author's summary: Romana has improved on the Doctor's technique by quite a bit.
Characters/Pairings: Romana/Strella/Reinhardt, Romana/Mel, Romana/Tosh, Romana/Harry, Romana/Simm!Master, Romana/Lucy, Romana/Sarah Jane, Romana/Martha, Tenth Doctor
Warnings: no actual on-screen sex (though there's plenty of implying)

Recced because: It's silly, naughty, and just plain fun, not mention pretty darn funny as well. I especially enjoyed the running gag about week-long Time Lady orgasms. (The story it remixes, Livii's she'll be superb is fun as well, but Magicallaw already recced it two years ago.)


Everything you ever heard about Time Lord sexuality, or the nonexistence thereof, is a lie.

Okay, historically it's true that Time Lords were a bit repressed. The grandeur and majesty of the heritage of Rassilon didn't exactly lend itself to elaborate scenes of debauchery. But these days, there are only a handful of Time Lords around, and it's safe to say the species is, as a whole, pretty damn sexy. If a skinny man in a suit offers you a ride in his phone box, you'd best pack your good knickers. If a dapper madman takes you out dancing, you should resign yourself to the inevitability of a night of passion and bad pop music. If a sweet-looking blonde gives you a flirtatious look over the rim of her cocktail glass--

But let's not get ahead of ourselves.
