Leia

rec: not quite

I was out of town and missed a few days, so I'll post two recs today.  Here's the first one:

Story: Not Quite
Author: Honeynoir
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 1039
Author's Summary: He reminds her of someone, but not exactly.
Characters/Pairings: River Song, Duplicate Tenth Doctor
Warnings: None

Recced because: This is a very creative story. I never thought to imagine these characters meeting, but Honeynoir makes it convincing and really lovely. She has a knack for finding the little details that make a description ring true. It has a follow-up piece here, which is equally great.

Here's an excerpt:

rec: balance of power

Story: Balance of Power
Author: eve11
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 2451
Author's Summary: The Doctor has a plan to save a xenophobic society from itself. If only he could remember what it was.
Characters/Pairings: Eleven, Amy, Rory
Warnings: None

Recced because: The world-building in this story is great. Eve11 manages to set up a compelling backstory in very little space, and the inhabitants of the mysterious planet are very well fleshed-out. The characterization is perfect--she really captures Eleven's voice. If you like h/c, this is also a good story for that. (I should mention that although the story is marked as having nothing to warn for, it does involve non-graphic torture.)
