rec for 01/13/11

Story: Dirge Without Music
Author: mamfidd82
Rating: PG
Word Count: 2,777
Author's Summary:Dealing with grief, rage, thwarted hope and blame - not exactly the Doctor's forte. Spoilers for S4.06
Characters/Pairings: Tenth Doctor, Jenny
Warnings: None

Recced because: Although The Doctor's Daughter wasn't a perfect episode it brought up a lot of really interesting themes. I love the way this story presents the idea that some of the things that make the Doctor a character we love can also make him dysfunctional in many ways. The story is somewhat depressing, but it leaves me at least more thoughtful than sad. Well written and worth a read in my opinion.

Rec: Bubbles by mamfidd82

Story: Bubbles
Author: mamfidd82
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 11,400
Author's Summary: Martha Jones and the no good, very bad day. With big dresses, mud, banter, a manual called 'So You Lack Bridezilla Genes!', wellington boots, Cheeky Walking Fishy People, and space snot.
Characters/Pairings: Martha/Tom, with cameos by Francine and Tish
Warnings: None.

Recced because: And now for something completely different! This story is, in short, hysterical. Poor Martha starts out having a bad day when she forgets she agreed to shop for wedding dresses with her mum and sister - and then the Doctor shows up and it's all downhill from there. Need a pick-me-up to get over the middle of the week? This is your fic.

Armour by mamfidd 82

Story: Armour
Author: Mamfidd82
Word count:1303
Rating:All ages
Author's summary:The Doctor always hides behind something or other. Usually, it's himself.
Characters/pairings:Ace McShane, Adric, Barbara Wright, Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart, Charley Pollard, Ian Chesterton, Jamie McCrimmon, Jo Grant, Martha Jones, Peri Brown, Rose Tyler, Susan Foreman, Tegan Jovanka, The Doctor (all of him).
Warnings: none.

Recced because: Well this one's just lovely. Touching, and sad, and a it painful, but lovely. A collection of moments, from both Old and New Who, that make you want to slap the Doctor and hug him all at the same time. And most importantly, catches the very essence of the Doctor in such a beautiful manner.

rec: Towing the Earth Home by mamfidd82

Hello! I'm Pitry and I shall be your reccer for this week (be afraid, be very afraid). I've decided to go this week with stories by authors who have never been recced before here on Calufrax, just to add a little bit more to the mix. 'Sides, it gives me an excuse to sign up for a second round later this year...

Story:Towing the Earth Home
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 1873
Author's Summary: After the events of 'Journey's End', two women move back into their lives. But for a moment, one moment there, they moved together.
Characters/Pairings: Martha/Tom, Rose/Duplicate Ten
Warnings: none.

Recced because: THe one thing I would fix/change about Journey's End is the nearly-non-existant interaction between Rose and Martha. mamfidd82's story doesn't fix JE's, and doesn't add interactions between these two, but rather shows what happens afterwards - two women who could have had the same life, each one thinking about the other. The really brilliant thing about this story is the love and respect shown to both characters - there are too many stories that downplay one character in favour of the other, but not this one - each character is played to its strength, each character gets to show just why she became a companion in the first place, and you can really feel the love the author has for both characters - and that makes the whole story just a joy to read.
