sometime around midnight by cereal

I'm going to be away from my computer tomorrow, so today you get two recs for the price of one! First, today's rec:

Story: Sometime Around Midnight
Author: cereal
Rating: Teen
Word Count:  2818
Author's Summary: It took two months. Two months of takeaway curries and crap television, of rumpled sheets and that spot on her neck that always makes her squirm. Two months of talking about Mickey's new girlfriend and Jackie's new tracksuit and decidedly not what a new, new, new Doctor meant to a new Rose.

Characters/Pairings: Rose/Ten Two
Warnings: None

Recced because: Despite all the grief and aggravation Rose and the Tenth Doctor (and their fans) have given me over the years, I still have a soft spot for stories about Rose and Handy trying to figure themselves out in Pete’s World. Here, they’ve been there for a while and not everything has worked out for the two of them. This Handy is achingly human and lost, and this story hurts, even through the happy ending.

And Saturday's rec:

Story: The Diogenes Club
Author: Prochytes
Rating: Teen
Word Count:  825
Author's Summary: Sometimes you want to go where nobody knows your name.

Characters/Pairings: Gwen, Mycroft Holmes
Warnings: None

Recced because: It’s the weekend and so I shall bring you crossovers. I love a well-written crossover. This one’s a crossover with BBC’s Sherlock. It’s part adventure, part Gwen character study, and part darkly amusing. Add to that an excellent Mycroft voice and bits from ACD’s The Greek Interpreter and you have my recommendation.
