Title: Worlds in Conjunction
Author: [livejournal.com profile] marylane
Rating: PG
Fandom: Doctor Who
Pairing: Doctor/Rose
Category/genres: drama, action/adventure, what-if, romance
Length: Medium (5,000 words)
Warnings: Spoilers through Doomsday, but few specifics. Set sometime after “Love & Monsters”
Author's Website / LJ name / Links: Read it here!

Author's Summary: The Doctor makes a slight miscalculation. Written for Wendymr for the Rose Tyler Ficathon. She wanted Rose making hard choices; the Doctor getting something disastrously wrong - with consequences; & Doctor/Rose romance of some sort; and she didn’t want Reinette.

Review: This fic is truly one-of-a-kind, which in the Doctor Who fandom is incredible in itself. I don’t even know how the author would conceive of this plot, it’s so intricate and beautiful, optimistic and sad. Rose is strong, brave, loving yet independent in this fic, hopelessly in love with the Doctor but at the same time accepting that she, herself, has power and responsibility to maintain balance in the universe. She is beautifully depicted, and her decisions in the events that follow are written with incredible grace and gritty realism. It’s AMAZING.

I don’t want to spoil anything further, but suffice to say that if you love Rose Tyler, you have to read this fic. Done deal, signed and sealed.

Once Upon by thewritingbug (PG)

Title: Once Upon
Author: [livejournal.com profile] thewritingbug
Rating: PG
Fandom: Alice
Pairing: Alice/Hatter
Category/genres: Drama, Romance, Pre-Series (character backstory, ftw!)
Length: Long (36,800 words)
Warnings: None
Author's Website / LJ name / Links:
At Fanfiction.Net
At the author’s LJ

Author's Summary: Once upon a time, there was a man called Hatter. Once upon a time, he had a story to tell.

Review: I’m a sucker for character backstory, and this one is done particularly well. This author goes to great pains to put together a past for Hatter that makes sense, coalescing beautifully over fifteen chapters to create a complete picture. It’s sensitive and creative and just GORGEOUS.

One critique I have is that I wish she’d spent just as much time exploring Hatter as he fell in love with Alice – we spend so much of this fic exploring who he was before he met her, and it would have been nice to re-explore the "original" story a little deeper with that new perspective. However, the conclusion definitely makes up for it, and on the whole it’s an extremely satisfying read. I’d recommend it to pretty much anyone. ^_^

Title: The Price of Tea
Author: [livejournal.com profile] randombattlecry
Rating: PG-13
Fandom: Alice (Syfy)
Pairing: Alice/Hatter, also featuring the Mad Hatter (Carroll-verse)
Category/genres: Pre-canon, post-canon, romance, introspection
Length: Medium (4,527)
Warnings: none
Author's Website / LJ name / Links: At the author’s livejournal

Author's Summary: Alice is a legend, a story, a history book, a puzzle. Hatter's trying to put the pieces together.

Review: Again, [livejournal.com profile] randombattlecry knocks it out of the park. My favorite part about her writing in this fandom is the way she interweaves Alice canon with Carrol’s original canon, and this story is an excellent example of that talent. Hatter’s conversations with his Mad grandfather are simply brilliant, nonsensical and yet wise. The way she alludes to Hatter’s and Alice’s growing romance is also well done, subtle in some places and intense in others. This is a FANTASTIC read. ^_^

Awake and Dreaming by goldy_dollar (PG)

  • Apr. 25th, 2010 at 10:28 PM
Title: Awake and Dreaming
Author: [livejournal.com profile] goldy_dollar
Rating: PG
Fandom: Doctor Who
Pairing: Ten + companions (Donna, Sarah Jane, Rose, the Master, Martha, Jack); some Ten/Rose
Category/genres: Genfic, Last Goodbyes
Length: Medium (3,231 words)
Warnings: death (Ten is regenerating), NO SPOILERS for finale/specials, this is 100% author plotbunny.
Author's Website / LJ name / Links: “It’s Donna and it can’t be Donna because he wiped all her memories and left her behind on Earth and remembering him would kill her and anyway he’s alone, he knows he’s alone.”

Author's Summary: The Tenth Doctor spends his last moments with some old friends.

Review:
In my head, this is actually how Season 4 ended. …I feel I really can’t give it any higher compliment than that.

All the characters are here, and they’re all perfect and wonderful in a sad, heart-wrenching, yet still somehow hopeful way. It’s a fic about endings, but also about starting anew. It’s inspiring and poignant and… just read it, okay!? XD
