Hi everyone, I'm Clocketpatch and I'll be your designated reccer for the next two weeks. I've tried to keep a companion theme, with a compilation of recs celebrating and exploring the strange, often tumultuous relationship the Doctor has with his companions, and how, while he enriches their lives, at the end of the day its him who needs them the most...

First up is one of the many beautiful fics to come out of the recent Eleventy_fest ficathon:

Story: Ghost Girl
Author: NancyBrown
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 455
Author's Summary: She isn't a ghost. This isn't a ghost story.
Characters/Pairings: Clara, Eleven
Warnings: Character death

Recced because:

Clara is straining to jump out of this fic and be noticed. I could practically hear her shouting out in the last line. Using the ghost quotes from Hide ("We're all ghosts to you" and "This isn't a ghost story; it's a love story") as a framing motif, this fic explores Clara's complex and often uneasy relationship with the Doctor, gives her some adorable back story, and illuminates a few of her more interesting echo lives. There are also some nice references for Classic Who fans. All of this is done in a little under 500 words, and all of those words are well placed and chosen with an artist's care.

Story: Two Gingers and an Australian walk into the lingerie department
Author: LunaRowena
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 3499
Author's Summary: "Tegan," said the Doctor. "You could have just told me what you wanted to go shopping for. I've lived with a lot of women over the years. I'm not a complete stranger to undergarments." Turlough continued to be fascinated by the ceiling.
Characters/Pairings: Tegan Jovanka, Turlough, Donna Noble, Five, Ten
Warnings: None

Recced because:

When I first read this, I ending up shooting tea out through my nose laughing. The fic was then instantly bookmarked for whenever I recced Calufrax next and I've read it several times whenever I need a good cheer-up. Why do I love this fic? It has some of the best Tegan and Turlough bickering I've ever seen in fic, a mash-up of two great eras, a bit of thought on the practicalities of TARDIS travel, and a really great tip on how to save your under wires from destruction while adventuring across the universe.

Also, it has koalas.
