I'm sorry, fellow whovians, my son turns four tomorrow, we decided to have a party yesterday, he decided to celebrate this upcoming milestone by getting concussed (counter corner 50000001 Gabey 0). Hence the small toddler party we were planning morphed into an hours long experience at the hospital. I know I said I was going to mixed bag this week and it seems nuWho heavy to me so I will make my second rec (today's) something else, in the meantime this really IS a fantastic piece and I hope you forgive my nuWho heavy week. :(

Story: Cosmic Joke
Author: Dune
Rating:All Ages
Word Count:4127
Author's Summary:Like almost all insane ideas and almost all stories, this tale starts in a pub.
Characters/Pairings:Jack Harkness, Jack Harkness, The Doctor (10th)
Warnings: Timey-wimeyness?

Recced because: I love a great timey-wimey story and this story ABSOLUTELY fits that description as well being a beautiful and intimate look at the lines of causality spinning off into forever between Jack and the Doctor. Add to that recipe a touch of sorrow and a cup of empathy and you have the perfect tiny tale. I know it's on the short side but that shouldn't stop you from enjoying it all the same.

Story: Fade Away
Author: Pitry
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 3411
Author's Summary: It was supposed to be different this time. He's human, he can't regenerate - he was supposed to die before her.
Characters/Pairings: Jackie Tyler, Pete Tyler, The Doctor (Duplicate 10th)
Warnings: None

Recced because: I wanted to rec something from the classic series, and very nearly did, when i stumbled across this piece. It's lovely and haunting and the style Pitry (the author) uses allows the story to have an emotional impact outside of the sequence of events inside the story, which stops it from, sinking to morose or melodramatic levels of emotion. It's a beautiful story that I didn't want to risk it not being shared until my next turn reccing.

In the end, I guess I did lie to you guys, as these recs were mostly newer series with classic touches thrown in; for that I apologise. However, I do hope you enjoyed my recs even half as much as I enjoyed reccing them and I PROMISE next time will have more classic tales. Until we meet again!
