Title: 'No Will but My Will'
Author: [livejournal.com profile] astrogirl2
Rating: Teen
Characters: The Master (Delgado)
Words: 511

Why I'm Recommending this: Darkly fascinating, it nabbed my attention right from the start and refused to let go. I only wish it were longer! Intriguing insight into a character who is quickly turning into one of my favorites (even though I'm still not familiar with this particular version).

Summary: Who needs empathy when you have mind control?

Enjoy. :) ♥

Title: 'Say Goodbye'
Author: Coryx
Rating: All Ages
Characters: The Doctor (Academy Era), the TARDIS, unspecified fellow Time Lord
Words: 1,415

Why I'm Recommending this: Firstly? It's a great story, simultaneously sweet and cute and beautiful, with a touch of the excitement that is yet to come. Secondly? This is the only story this author has on their Teaspoon account (which makes it the only one I know about), and that was posted in 2011, which I consider a shame; I see a lot of talent here!

Summary: The Doctor meets the TARDIS for the first time.

Title: 'Flowers on Fire'
Author: etherati
Rating: All Ages
Characters: The Doctor and the Master, Academy era through to Tennant and Simm.
Words: 2,627

Why I'm Recommending this: This is a time in the characters' lives that I know precious little about, so any insight into that period fascinates me. And this is well-written, every word flawlessly chosen. I was absolutely entranced, drawn in completely.

Summary: They burn, in the darkness and the light, circling round each other like binary stars just on the edge of nova. They both burn, but they do not burn the same.

Why I'm Recommending this: Because it's a clever concept that I wish like crazy that I'd been smart enough to think of first! I'm frankly a bit jealous, lol!

Summary: The ‘popcorn’ button on the TARDIS microwave causes all corn within a two mile radius to violently explode.

Title: Annotation
Author: nostalgia_lj
Rating: PG
Genre: Character Study
Word Count: 1044
Pairings or Characters: Tenth Doctor; Rose
Summary: "In this place there are rooms that are barely even real."

Why I'm reccommending: Because it's surreal, dream-like, and slightly scary. This was one of the first piece of DW fanfic I read, and  I really like this story (and I suspect my story "Half-Asleep" , which I also recced, was influenced subconsciously from this), and it is one of the few stories I know that taps into the random feeling of dreams, while still making an odd form of sense.

Word Count: 2736
Pairings or Characters: Sycorax
Summary: It. Is. Defended.

Why I'm reccommending: Because it's a well-done of a young man learning a lesson about pride, with a heartwarming ending. And the final part of the story makes it even better.

Word Count: 1273
Pairings or Characters: The TARDIS, mention of Doctor and Susan Foreman
Summary: There is a reason why the Doctor has never had all that much luck repairing the chameleon circuit.

Why I'm recommending: This story shows the alien mind, and affection, of the TARDIS, and gives a believable explanation for the police box shape.If you like fic that focuses on the TARDIS, you'll like this.

Author:  Philips Cragg
Rating: G
Genre: Drama
Word Count: 6426
Pairings or Characters: OC, Iris Wildthyme (kinda)
Summary: (none given).

Why I'm recommending: Because it's awesome. It's about being creative, and living in fantasy, and wearing masks. And it shows how a story can be done in the Whonisverse without any sci-fi elements, and still be done exquisitely well.

Title: From Peri, with Love
Author: TimeAsunderQ
Rating: G
Genre: Heartwarming Fluff
Word Count: 1.121
Pairings or Characters: Sixth Doctor, Peri
Summary: (Set between character piece set between Timelash and Revelation of the Daleks). An important anniversary rolls around. How does Peri feel about her time with the Doctor?

Why I'm recommending: The Sixth Doctor and Peri had a somewhat rocky relationship. Sometimes, it's hard to see why they stick around each other. But, in this fic, the author believably shows that Peri does value their friendship, no matter the arguments. It's short, heartwarming, and sweet.

Author: [personal profile] medie
Rating: T (use of NSFW language)
Word Count: 1044
characters: Romana (doesn't specify, but dialogue feels like Romana I to this reader, though could be post-II), Dean Winchester
Summary:"It's the Pepto-Bismol planet of the three-headed yogurt people."
Note: Drabble written for  [personal profile] dragonsinger who asked for Romana is bouncing around the universe on her own and has acquired a companion of her own - Dean Winchester. Now, does rock salt work on alien ghosts?

Why should you read: It's a short fic with uptight haughty Romana who has Dean Winchester as companion. If I need to give you any other reasons, there's no hope for you.

Title: 'A Very Bad God'
Author: wmr
Rating: All Ages
Characters: Tenth Doctor, Jack Harkness
Words: 3,947

Why I'm Recommending this: The writing is flawless, as is the characterization. By turns disturbing, heartbreaking, and gorgeous. Extremely gripping. By the time I'd finished reading, I was on the receiving end of some strong 'It's a Wonderful Life' vibes; don't know if the author intended that or not, but that came across powerfully and very effectively.

Summary: "One event you wish hadn't happened, and it's undone. Just like that."

Title: 'Tarnished'
Author: [livejournal.com profile] irishvampire13
Rating: Adult
Characters: Cyberplanner/Clara
Words: 2,702

Why I'm Recommending this: Because I've found that it's suddenly getting a lot of surprising attention--I've recently had a request for a continuation, which I've had to turn down. It makes me kinda nervous--it's one of the most extreme things I've ever written, due to adult-ish themes, which I make a practice of not dealing in. I actually still can't believe I wrote this. Proud of it, but I'm a bit O.o about it, lol.

Warnings: Alternate-universe scariness. Waltzing around some, to me, slightly uncomfortable content.

Summary: You're beautiful, brilliant, fascinating. I can understand why the Doctor was trying so hard to protect you. You are well worth the effort.

Why to listen: It starts out as a rather happy fic. And then it slowly turns into a bittersweet character study of both Eight and Sam Jones.

Here's the story.

Rating: Teen/Adult-ish… Mild sexual content.
Characters: Eleventh Doctor, River Song, lots of mentions of the Ponds
Words: 13,706

Why I'm recommending this: Because I'm a sucker for angst and post-Manhattan!dysfunctional but amazing couple!hidden grief!fics are my drug.

Summary: "If we're going to hurt anyway, why don't we hurt together?"
The aftermath of Manhattan. River is determined to hide the damage even if it kills her. And it just might.
Something is going to crumble, she's just not sure if it's going to be her marriage or herself.

Title: Dark have been my Dreams of Late

Words: 10,729

Why I'm recommending this: Because of more angst and trauma and smashing writing/character insight? Yeah, merry Christmas guys ♥ (Another wonderful AU.)

Rating: Adult
Characters: Eleventh Doctor, Rory, lots of Amy mentions
Words: 20,789

Why I'm recommending this: DUDE. Erm, where do I start? Another breath-taking AU… It just took my heart, broke it to square bits, hacked the pieces and shoved back the result into my chest. Roughly that's it.

Summary: Sleep was a thing of the past. / So far, it had been eight months since her death, and this was only the second planet they had landed at and actually stepped foot upon.

Title: Moon River
Author: [livejournal.com profile] avarill and [livejournal.com profile] taiamu's epic collab.
Rating: All Ages
Characters: Eleventh Doctor, River Song
Words: 46,658

Why I'm recommending this: Perfect in the action, perfect in the characterization, perfect in the shipping. I tried to keep my River/Eleven obsession about in check in those, and that's the multi-chap I pick, so make of that what you will!

Summary: With Lake Silencio inexorably approaching, the Doctor wonders if it's time to fulfil his first and last promise to River. But the River he finds isn't used to being the one who has to say 'spoilers.' So they compromise: an archaeological expedition on a stormy, hostile moon where an ancient danger lurks behind every shadow.

Rating: All Ages

Words: 2,422

Why I'm recommending this: Because I love those two! (Though they're definitely platonic there and I love them that way.) And it's a fantastic character piece, that does great justice to River's professor life and to her dynamic with Anita.

Summary: Five things Anita learned from River Song, and one thing River learned from Anita.

Why I'm recommending this: This is a fascinating and clever AU, with wonderful action and character insight, that just kept me on the edge of my seat.

Summary: The Time Lords were victorious, and now hold the universe in their grasp. Rose Tyler's fighting a revolution and the Doctor is nothing more than a myth. Then Melody Pond meets Oswin Oswald on the local prison planet - and that's when everything changes.
