Mysterious Ways

*flushes*
Ok, guys I am oh so sorry for being 3 days late. My RL has been nuts!!! However, know that I am actually on the ball now, and I am super-excited to rec for you this week! Hope you enjoy some of my favorities, and I promise to keep the Ten/Rose to a minimum :)

First off:

http://www.whofic.com/viewstory.php?sid=20452
Story: Mysterious Ways
Author: Aenaria
Rating: Adult
Word Count:57076
Author's Summary:She's been lost, found the key, unlocked the door to the universe, wandered about, took a detour, stopped, stopped some more, then started again. Now, finally, Rose Tyler is on her way home. The Sonnetsverse reunion story. Diverges from S4 canon after 'The Unicorn and the Wasp'. Please note rating change for Chapter 15.
Characters/Pairings: Ten/Rose, Donna, Martha, Original Characters
Warnings: Explicit Sex, Swearing
Recced because: This is actually the penultimate story in a 'verse called "Sonnets Writ on Skin," which you don't HAVE to read to get this, but I highly reccomend you do, cause it's amazing. This is my favorite reunion fic of all time. Rose has a little sister named Gemma, and Gemma and a few other original charcters really make everything pop. They way the story unfolds it just gorgeous, and I can't say enough about it.

Back-reccing for Tuesday!

Story: The Wolf and the Mockingjay
Author: HonorH
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 37880
Author's Summary:Rose Tyler is chosen for the Hunger Games. Martha Jones volunteers to save her little sister. When they meet in the arena, something happens that will change the world. Hunger Games crossover.
Characters/Pairings:Ace McShane, Amy Pond, Donna Noble, Jack Harkness, Jackie Tyler, Martha Jones, Mickey Smith, Other Character(s), River Song, Rose Tyler, Sarah Jane Smith, The Doctor (9th)
Warnings: Explicit violence
Recc'ed because: I am not much of a Hunger Games fun, but I was really intruiged to see the concept used in the Whoniverse. Rose here is incredibly strong, and her interactions with Martha are not only adorable, at times they brought me close to tears. 9 and Donna are great as mentors, and Jack as Cinna is just perfect. I also love that this doesn't just tell the Hunger Games by replacing Katniss et al with Whoniverse characers; Honor truly makes the idea live a new life on it's own, and makes magnificent use of the concept.

Author's Summary:Once upon a time, she had abided in the world where lives did not begin with ‘once upon a time.’ No more. Rose walks through the woods. Meanwhile, the Doctor deals with an abundance of Bad Wolf references.
Characters/Pairings: Jack Harkness, Jackie Tyler, Martha Jones, Mickey Smith, Pete Tyler, Rose Tyler, The Doctor (10th), The Doctor (9th)
Warnings: None
Recced because: Dear God, what can I say about this fic? Not enough! There is such an eerie, dark fairytale aura, and the writing is jawdroppingly gorgeous. I needed to read a particualr chapter a few times to really get it, because I was so caught and entranced by the vivid and rich descriptions. There is tons of bad Wolf in this story, and it's used SO well!
