To start of my week(s) I have something featuring one of my favourite tardis teams.
Story: Tea in the tardis
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 1310
Author's Summary: The Doctor and Charley make C'rizz drink a cup of tea for the first time. Set after Caerdroia.
Characters/Pairings: The Doctor (8th), Charley Pollard, C'rizz, the TARDIS
Recced because: Well-written C'rizz fic, do I need another reason? the Doctor makes tea, Charley has a laugh and C'rizz is confused by it all. It's full of little references to their adventures and feels like part of one. In short: it captures the feel of their era perfectly(is it an era, can I call it an era?): it's cute, hilarious but also a little bit angsty.
Platoapproved writes C'rizz's wonder and confusion wonderfully without making him sound childish or naïve. His unique qualities are subtly explored, and his fears feel very real without completely taking over the scene. I've always thought C'rizz was a fascinating character, and I'm forever sad his personality didn't get explored more before he, euhm.. left.
Apparently a mark of great (big finish) fanfic is when you hear the voices of the characters in your head as you read, and that is certainly the case here. So, go ahead and read!
