Rec: Bring Up the Bodies (Ian Chesterton, Dark AU)

Title: Bring Up the Bodies
Author: Yowza
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 2571
Author's Summary: He wished the beeping would stop. It was bad enough only having hours to live, but listening to those hours being counted down by that shrill monotonous beep was intolerable. It wasn’t that he didn’t trust the Doctor and Barbara and Susan to get him out of this situation – they’d been in difficult circumstances before, after all, but that he didn’t trust the justice system here one little bit. It may not matter that they could prove he was innocent if everyone else was so convinced he was guilty.
Characters/Pairings: Ian Chesterton
Warnings: (reposting Author's note): Warnings for execution, and spoilers for Keys of Marinus. I don't know what made me wonder what would happen if Barbara and the Doctor didn't catch the murderers in time, but I did wonder, so here it is.

Recc'ed Because: This one was only posted a few days ago but it really grabbed my attention, just because of the mixture of the mundane world amid the absolute madness of the overarching idea of time traveling adventures, and of course the dread and helplessness and heartbreak of the inevitable. Even reading the warning, the reader is right there with Ian on the inability to process the absurdity and reality of the whole thing. It's dark and sad and horrible, and brilliant for all that.

Rec: Movie Night by Pendragon (One, Steven, Vicki)

To lighten the mood for the last rec of my stint, another First era story but one that is fun and a bit tongue-in-cheek and a bit bittersweet in its examination of old TV/film in general.

Title: Movie Night
Author: Pendragon
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 2177
Author's Summary: Lights out! Film rolling! It's classic movie night in the TARDIS.
Characters/Pairings: First Doctor, Steven Taylor, Vicki
Warnings: None

Recc'ed Because: It's just a fun and very cute scene. It would seem to work as with Eleven and the Ponds as it does with Steven, Vicki and One. There is some self-referential irony and a bittersweet nod in there as well, considering how many of the First Doctor episodes were lost.
