Hello! I am LibraryLover82, and I’ll be reccing this week. I read a bit of everything, so I’ll be bringing you a mix of good stories from the Teaspoon archive. I’m trying to vary the story length, as well as the characters. I can’t completely avoid authors who have been recced before, so I’m not even going to try. As far as I know, none of these stories have been recced here before.
Story: The Valiant Tales
Word Count: 3,200
Author's Summary: A series of drabbles about the people who lived, worked, and suffered on the Valiant during the Year That Never Was.
Characters/Pairings: Primarily Other characters, with appearances by the Tenth Doctor, The Master(Simm), Lucy Saxon, Tish Jones, Francine Jones, Jack Harkness
Warnings: Some explicit violence
Recced because: I’m going to start the week on an unusual note by recommending a series. Never fear; it is a series of drabbles, which makes the length about the same as a regular story. This author can do more with 100 words than some people can do with 1,000. These are portraits of people who were either forced to work on the Valiant, or who volunteered to work there, during the Year That Never Was. In 100 words RobinC paints a picture of the best and worst of humanity, and illustrates just what a terrible year it was. Some are surprising, some are shocking, some make me cry, and some make me proud to be a human. They all make me think; is this what I would have done if I had been there?
