I'm saaammie or as I'm known over at Teaspoon, Cicci Green. I'm a Swedish college student who really should outgrow the whole fanfic thing, but so far I haven't. I'm also a pretty new member to the Who community, in fact, I only discovered DW back in May, but it only took one episode to get me hooked, and here I am.
I've slowly started to watch old Who, but haven't got far, so all my recs will be New Who.
So, let's start my reccing week! Are you excited? I'm excited!
Author's summary: Martha Jones always knocks.
Spoilers: Human Nature
Word count: 500
Characters/Pairings: Tenth Doctor and Martha Jones
Recced because: This is a brilliant little fic that totally proves you don't need to use many words to perfectly describe situations and characters. While Martha isn't my favorite companion, I admire her strength and tenacity and I felt very keenly after Human Nature/Family of Blood that she deserved so much more of an apology than she actually got. I also believe the stay in 1913 probably affected her much more than we actually got see.
Asrai remedies this, but does in in a perfectly believable way. This is exactly how the Doctor, clumsy fool that he sometimes is, would act. Asrai proves, in a few short sentences, how much 1913 changed Martha and does it without a single unnecessary word.
