rec: May The Best Woman Win by starjargon

Hello all! This is my first time reccing, like, ever, and I am so excited to share some really excellent stories with all of you! My two ships are Ten/Donna and Doctor/River, but I enjoy anything that's really well written. Fics I enjoy are often of a happier or more emotional persuasion, often containing many giggles and fun banter.
This first fic I'm reccing is by the lovely starjargon, for whom I am honored to beta and who kindly returns the favor. I think you'll all really like it.

Warnings: None

Recced because: This is a very fun, enjoyable fic that has pretty much every nuWho companion out there, as well as three different Doctors. Incredibly well written, with a strong, even representation of opposing characters, and some fantastic plot twists. It's one of my favorites that she's written, because she handles the complexity of dealing with so many different characters and emotions all at once in such a masterful and brilliant way.

rec: To Err is Human by Lilac Summers

Story: To Err Is Human
Author: Lilac Summers lilsum4
Rating: Adult
Word Count: 53374
Author's Summary: Donna is the (un)lucky companion stuck with the Doctor in 1913 this time around; she's not quite sure how to deal with this sudden change in situation. Mostly she just blames the TARDIS. Uses season 3 episodes "Human Nature" and "Family of Blood."
Characters/Pairings: Donna Noble/The Doctor (10th)
Warnings: None

Recced because: I love this story so much. I first read it over a year ago and since then I've gone back to read it all over again two more times. The way Lilac writes is fantastic- incredibly humorous and with just the right amount of description, thought, and dialogue to make for a perfect read. This fic does veer into more explicit areas later on, so be aware. Personally, this fic takes the cake for best episode with a different companion.
Ten and Donna are so very in character, well, as much as Ten can be when he's John Smith. I can't even try to describe the amazing that is this fic. Just go read it for yourselves and you'll know what I'm talking about.
