12:52 pm - Seeking fic recs (New Doctor Who)
My friend sarcasticval has recently been introduced to New Who, with good results. :) She's particularly becoming fond of the Tenth Doctor, and is seeking fic but having a hard time doing so without spoiling herself for later in the series. To date, I believe she has finished series 3 (Val, please correct me if that's not right).

Particularly looking for fics with Ten and Rose (or, y'know, Ten/Rose), special emphasis in these areas:

--h/c where the Doctor is the one injured
--Ten/Rose where the relationship itself is developed and growing, not just assumed as background
--wacky plotty hijinks (especially of "The Idiot's Lantern" type)

(I sincerely doubt she'd say no to fics with Nine, Rose, and Capt. Jack, either, given her reaction to "Boomtown." And they could probably be either gen or OT3. *g*)
Current Mood: busybusy

Aw, thanks honey! I'm actually now halfway through season 4, so the wacky hijinks and/or h/c bits can be gladly expanded to cover all companions.

Brilliant! Cause there's some great hijinks to be had once Donna comes on the scene. *g*

Here's the gal I told you about earlier: honorh. She writes a lot of Nine/Rose (her OTP, I think), but also a lot of Nine and Rose and Jack (and Nine/Rose/Jack). You can start at her FanFiction.net profile, but not everything is there. I particularly recommend "Seed Pearls" (a post-"Doomsday" AU), "Tea for Two" (Ten & Jackie), and "Under the Skin" which is very companion-centric but awesome.

There's a lot more at her profile on A Teaspoon and an Open Mind. The one I was particularly looking for is Nine, Jack, and Rose, and has a good bit of h/c: Into the Dreaming. (Ooo, and her Firefly crossover is there! If you want to see Jack making eyes at most of the crew, that's your fic. *g*)

A selection of recs

(Link)
Ivory and Horn by Tara LJC O'Shea
A quiet walk across the ice fields of Kos turns into more than either the Doctor or Rose planned for. (Nine/Rose or Nine & Rose)

Interlibrary Loan by Dame Ruth
A short piece of mildly silly Discworld/DW crossover crack. (Nine, Rose)

They Came to Norway to Eat Our Brains by Doyle
Post-Doomsday AU. The Torchwood base at Darlig ulv Stranden has a problem with zombies. Well, one zombie (suspected). And when the pictures come through in London, Rose is shocked to realise who it is.

What Country, Friends, Is This?
Post-Doomsday AU. Rose still runs for her life. One night she runs into someone she never expected to see again. Problem #1: It's hard to have a blissful reunion with someone who has never met you. Problem #2: A Nine from the universe where Rose Tyler was never born is bound to have some unresolved issues. (Alt!Nine & Rose)

Hall of Mirrors by WMR
Eventually, she will have to accept that this time he really does mean it. That sometimes impossible really is impossible. Post-Doomsday AU fic. (Alt!Nine/Rose) (the sequel is Alt!Nine/Rose/Alt!Jack)

But Broken Lights by Rosa Acicularis
"I thought you and me were...I obviously got it wrong." Rose and the Doctor after The Age of Steel. (Ten/Rose)

Tea and Ginger by Banbury Tale
The Doctor did so want to be ginger. Donna is a most able assistant. (humour)

Outgeniused (or: How to Get Fired From the Apple Store in Three Easy Steps) by Casira
This one falls into the "wacky hijinks" category, and it's Ten with an original character, but it's fun.

Oh thank goodness someone responded to this. I was so sad to see mine as the only comment.

Tell me what you think of them when you read them, okay?

I'm afraid I don't have very many Ten/Rose recs because I prefer Nine/Rose to Ten/Rose.

It takes time to assemble a collection like that. There's a bunch on there I haven't read yet, so I'm glad this is on my LJ where I can get at them. :)

I'm glad you appreciate that! I was going through my downloaded fic archive for all the stories rated "Excellent" or "Very Good", which were Doctor Who fics about Nine or Ten, particularly Nine/Rose or Ten/Rose.

Oh yeah, just from recalling how long it takes to put together my "fic year in review" posts every January--and that's with knowing which fics and exactly where to find them! :)

This is much tougher.

I hadn't read "Outgeniused" before. It's awesome!
