rec: just another day by vvj5

(Sorry for the slightly delayed start in reccing! I've picked out seven stories for this week, one each from the era of each old school Doctor. Since I'm late in starting, I'll do two a day on the weekend to catch up.)

Story: Just Another Day
Author: vvj5 (lost_spook)
Rating: All Ages
Word count: 1423
Author's summary: It's business as usual for Ian, Barbara, the Doctor and Vicki. You know, danger, imprisonment, escape...
Characters/Pairings: Ian/Barbara, One, Vicki
Warnings: None

Recced because: The recent tardis_gen ficathon produced loads of great fic, but this is one of my favourites. It works as both a wonderful recreation and a lighthearted deconstruction of its era. The little soupcon of Ian/Barbara shippiness in the mix is wonderful (and doesn't render it non-gen in the slightest IMO, given how present the same sort of thing is in the canon), and somehow it's particularly nice to see Vicki used in a fic like this -- she's not in it much but lost_spook nails her characterisation perfectly, giving the lie to the idea that she's a bit of a cookie cutter Susan replacement.
