Very excited to be this month's special reccer! Here is my first rec I hope you enjoy it!:

Fandom Category: Doctor Who/Torchwood/Sarah Jane Adventures
Pairing: Martha Jones/Master + various canon pairings
Fic Title: Now We Have a Map of the Stars
Author: [livejournal.com profile] zauberer_sirin
Link: http://42number.livejournal.com/tag/nwhamots (scroll to the bottom of the page for Prologue)
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13/Violence,War,Temporary character death
Genre: Romance, Drama, Angst, War, Humor.
WIP?: No
Special Rec: 1 of 22

Why This Must Be Read: Author's summary: total AU: Martha never left and the Master was never killed. The Doctor keeps his promise of taking care of him. Sort of. Martha helps. Kind of. This story is so well written and the author does such a great job of doing the almost impossible she keeps the Master in character. So don't expect to be overly fond of him for most of the fic, but like Martha you will find yourself sympathizing and understanding him more until he ruins it by being well...the Master. But this story isn't only about Master/Martha's burgeoning relationship, it is about all the relationships in the very dysfunctional Doctor Who family. Both Jack and Sarah Jane and their issues with the Doctor make an appearance. Also there are Martha's host of issues with the Doctor and her very conflicting emotions for and against the Master. Plus the Doctor's issues with companions in general and with the Master specifically, come to play. All of that and they are supposed to be stopping an invasion, that may or may not be happening in their timeline. It is 100,000+ words of delicious drama, adventure, and familial dysfunction.

Fandom Category: Torchwood
Pairing: Gwen Cooper/Jack Harkness
Fandom #: 29
Special Recs: 95

Fic Title: Paperwork
Author: Spoons1899
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5013473/1/
Rating/Warning(s): K+/T
Genre: Friendship, Unresolved Feelings
WIP?: No

Special Rec #: 95

Why This Must Be Read: Usually it is Gwen with the unresolved feelings or jealousy. Here it is Jack. I like the pairing of Gwen and Jack because at the very beginning of Torchwood (series 1), she is the one who has the best chance of being his equal, something I think is necessary for a good relationship. (You can choose to be submissive, but if you are not starting from equality and making the choice, it is not good.) I like this insight into Jack's side of the story.

Hello to this fabulous community. I am an avid DWHO fan (and watch the random Torchwood episode, only so I can watch the magnificent Captain Jack and his outrageous flirtation and romance with Ianto), so I come bearing fic. And I cheated, a little, because I slipped in a few stand-alone Doctor Who and Torchwood fics amongst the fabulous crossovers I've recced. But they're all fantastic, and I am happy to spread the love. So then - onwards!

Fandom Category: Doctor Who/Torchwood
Pairing: Jack/known universe
Fic Title: Everyman
Author: basingstroke
Link: http://basingstoke.livejournal.com/337344.html
Rating/Warning(s): NC-95, spoilers for Torchwood finale
Genre: angst and fluff
WIP?: No
Why This Must Be Read: A look, on Jack's side, of the relationship between the Doctor, Jack, and, let's face it, Martha. How he hurts every time he dies, but because he loves the Doctor with all his heart, will sacrifice himself over and over again. There's a running bit where the Doctor pops in and out of Jack's life, wanting to wish him a happy birthday, and  he's always off by a little bit, and it's up to Jack to grin and remind him that he's either a 100 years too early or 50 years too late, and it's heartbreaking but fantastic to read. There's lots of flirty banter between Jack and Martha, and oohhh, there's Jack and Ianto and it's perfect. Everything about this fic is just right.

Fandom Category: Doctor Who
Pairing: Rory-centric, Amy/Rory
Fic Title: Vita Longa
Author: sam_storyteller
Link: http://sam-storyteller.dreamwidth.org/147383.html
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13, spoilers for the fifth season finale, written pre-"Let's Kill Hitler"
Genre: time travel, flashbacks, character study
WIP?: No
Why This Must Be Read: Oh god, I heart Rory with all of my heart. And the minute he popped up as a Centurion, I started screaming THERE MUST BE FIC ABOUT THIS SOMEWHERE. This fic does such a good job at crafting the two lifetimes our Rory spent, one growing up with Amy, and one growing up as a distinguished Roman. This was written waaaay before "Let's Kill Hitler," so obviously, the prequel bits of Amy and Rory getting together are very different, but I still haven't decided which version I like better. There's a lot of Latin, a lot of Rory getting it on with everyone, because, he's crazy gorgeous, a lot of Rory being a badass, of the heartbreaking romance between him and Amy - and, and, just SO MUCH GOOD STUFF.

Fandom Category: Doctor Who
Pairing: Eleven/River
Fic Title: You're Just My Cup of Tea, Or: Domesticity is Setting In
Link: http://dollsome.livejournal.com/1601204.html
Rating/Warning(s): PG, spoilers through "A Good Man Goes to War"
Genre: lots and lots of flirting
WIP?: No
Why This Must Be Read: There's a lot of angsty fic and vidlets made out of the Eleven/River ship, and it's expected, considering THEY HAVE THE MOST TRAGIC RELATIONSHIP OF ALL TIME. But you can't forget, they're the existential couple, who live in the moment, and their moments are just filled with shenangians and flirty banter. Dollsome captured all of these things in this wonderful, wonderful drabble, and it's just a gem to read. River comes upon the Doctor's cupboard of tea cups, and finds out little bits of trivia (did you know the Doctor gave Lady Gaga a disco stick and she USED IT WRONG?). And she lets slip the fact that the Doctor regularly feeds her tea. It's just a wonderful ball of fluffiness.

Happy reading, y'all!

Fandom Category: Torchwood
Pairing: Marha Jones/Ianto Jones
Fic Title: Let Me Be the First to Say
Author: Mavjade
Link: Here
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13
Genre: Romance
WIP?: No, one-shot

Why This Must Be Read: Author's summary  "Why can't I find guys like that? Why am I attracted to the wildly unavailable? And then another thought occurred to her, He is available, attractive, close to my age, funny, smart, caring.".  Why I like it: It was such an unusual pairing (I have never seen it before or since), that I had to check it out  and I was very glad I did.  I think it works as an AU, a sort of what if Martha and Ianto had made different choices.  The author calls it a crack pairing, but the way she wrote this one-shot it totally works. By the end you will wish it was longer.  It is a delightfully sweet story.   Enjoy!

Fandom Category: Torchwood
Pairing: Martha Jones/Jack Harkness
Fic Title: Rest and Recovery
Author:[livejournal.com profile] persiflage_1 
Link: Here
Rating/Warning(s): G
Genre: Friendship/Romance
WIP?: No 

Why This Must Be Read: Jack and Martha get to know each after the year that never was.  I love Martha/Jack stories, they have such chemistry together, be it on screen or in fanfiction.   I loved this one because the way Jack takes care of Martha and vice versa, and how they allow themselves to be weak around each other, after a year of having to be strong.  Very tender one-shot by a talented author.  Enjoy!

Fandom Category: Stargate SG-1/Torchwood
Pairing: Vala Mal Doran/Jack Harkness
Fic Title: she can drive as fast as me, but she stops at all the lights
Author: [livejournal.com profile] minervacat
Link: http://minervacat.livejournal.com/954701.html
Rating/Warning(s): NC-17
Genre: action adventure, crossover, friendship.
WIP?: nope.

Why This Must Be Read: The meeting of these two characters just fits so well. It's so easy to imagine them meeting during their many years of space pirating in dingy bars, striking up a friendship, and then going about their merry space pirating ways. This fic does a wonderful job of inserting their meetings, time travel and all, and it does it naturally, not once making their meetings feel forced. There's even hot bar sex twice over.
