Rec: Seven Days in a Year That Never Was

Hello Whoniverse!   I'm LibraryLover82 (Library_Lover on Teaspoon), and I'll be reccing again this week.   I tried to mix up the story length a bit, but most of them are quick reads, because that's usually what I have time to read.   There will be a healthy dose of New Who, a strong flavor of Classic Who, a dollop of Sarah Jane Adventures and just a tiny pinch of Torchwood, so I hope you find something you like.   I have also tried to rec mostly authors who have never been recced here before, because I think it's easy to fall into a habit of only reading familiar authors and you can miss some good things when you do that.   As always, please tip the authors with a comment!

Story: Seven Days in a Year that Never Was

Author: Ebbyzone

Rating: All Ages – One story rated Adult

Word Count: 14,932

Author's Summary: Seven days in the life of Martha Jones during the year she walked the Earth for the Doctor.

Characters/Pairings: Martha Jones, Tenth Doctor, others

Warnings: None


Recced because:

I'm starting with the longest one.  It’s somewhat unusual to rec a series, but these stories could easily just have been chapters in one story, so I decided to go for it.   I really like how Ebbyzone describes some of the moments Martha had during the YTNW when she wasn’t actively running for her life.   Martha’s memories of happier times with her family are what I imagine she would have thought about a lot during her travels, both because she was worried about them, and because it gives her strength to remember what normal feels like.   There are mild spoilers for the novel “The Story of Martha” in this, but to be honest that book disappointed me a little.   These stories didn’t.
