rec: clash of the titans

Whilst I never intended it, I have realised that most of my recs have been on the humorous side this week. This second last rec from me is no exception!

Story: Clash of the Titans
Author: AnneHedonia
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 1809
Author's Summary: Four geniuses who're sure they're right, all in the same room. Fandoms: Doctor Who/House/The Mentalist/Sherlock. Fair warning: this is crackier than a Roman ruin.
Characters/Pairings: Martha Jones, The Doctor (10th), Other Character(s)
Warnings: None
Recced because: I can't remember how I stumbled upon this little gem but I am extremely grateful that I did. It combines four separate universes into one so amazingly, I can't believe that it isn't canon. AnneHedonia manages to keep the the characters voice, attitudes and actions intact, which leads to much hilarity. Watch for the appearance of the companions/offsiders of the four main characters because that is so how this bizarre situation would go down.

For those concerned, you need not be a fan of all the other shows, such as House or the Mentalist, to get the gist of what is going on but if you have watched all four shows, you are in for a treat!

rec: Coaster Castles (And Other Sturdy Defenses)

And here is my last rec for the week! I've saved one of my absolute favourites for last, enjoy.

Story: Coaster Castles (And Other Sturdy Defenses)
Author: rallalon
Rating: Adult
Word Count: 8106
Author's Summary: He's only a bloke in a bar, but he's a bloke in a bar who needs her
Characters/Pairings: Rose Tyler, The Doctor (10th)
Warnings: Explicit sex, Angst
Recced because: How can something so angsty be so amazingly hot? Ten, in a vulnerable moment after season three and the trip on the spaceship Titanic, is heartbreaking in this fic. Rallalon writes Ten and Rose to perfection and does quite well at the smutty bits *waves face* but it is the emotion that makes me remember this, even 2 years after I first read it. The formatting with double spacing is a tad off putting but it is worth persevering and getting to the heart of the story.

Plus the last sentence. Ugh, my heart still clenches when I read it. If you are partial to the Rose/Ten ship and haven't read this fic yet, then I advise reading this poste haste!
