Recced because: A couple of years ago there was relatively little Avengers fanfic; with the release of the recent film there's been a huge flood, inevitably including some crossovers with Doctor Who. This is one of the better stories, a quiet character study in which an unlikely friendship develops between the abrasive pre-series Donna and someone you really wouldn't like if he got mad...

Excerpt: [Spoiler (click to open)]Bruce Banner met Donna Noble in a tiny coffee shop on the corner of a rainy London street.

She was loud and making her distaste known to the proprietor, she was drawing looks and disgusted glares from the surrounding patrons in typical British fashion.

He thought it prudent to step in, calm down the raging woman before it got out of hand. A gentle hand on the small of her back seemed to shock her into silence.

He was there on a vacation of sorts. It had been exactly 10 days since the battle for Earth ended. Tony had offered him refuge at Stark Tower, but between Pepper and The Cap, Bruce thought it might get a little cramped with the addition of a rage-powered monster running around.

Bruce smiled at the frightened manager and offered up a few quid in compensation and ushered the woman to a nearby table.

She spluttered and turned her indignation onto Bruce. “‘Scuse you, Cuddly Bear, I was in the middle of a conversation. And I don’t believe anyone invited you to interrupt it.”
