It's been ages since I've done a randomly generated fic rec, so here we go!

Randomly generated character: The Eleventh Doctor
Fic: Make Believe
Author: musedepandora
Author's summary:It didn't end in The Library. For either of them. (Eleven/River, Amy. Spoilers through Pandorica).
Characters: Eleventh Doctor, River, Amy
Rating: All Ages
Spoilers: As the author says, through The Pandorica Opens
Length: 3269 words

Why the rec: It's a simple but brilliant premise: the Doctor sometimes takes the TARDIS back to orbit The Library so he can have conversations with the River he left there in the computer. There's no false romance pasted on here; their relationship is exactly as portrayed in canon, with the Doctor both drawn to and bothered by River, while River is as mysterious as ever. Her status as a dead hologram is not shied away from, nor is the Doctor's fundamental discomfort around her -- and yet it completely works. In the end it's a fascinating exploration of two very complicated characters who have a complex relationship with each other, perfectly executed.

Randomly generated character: Romana II
Fic: Incident in a Parisian Cafe
Author: JJPOR
Author's summary:When deciding how to kill time during a night out adventuring in Paris, asking yourself "what would James Bond do?" is probably the wrong approach. Missing scene from City of Death (Romana/Duggan).
Characters: Romana, Duggan
Rating: Teen
Spoilers: City of Death
Length: 2220 words

Why the rec: I'm stunned that this hasn't been recced on Calufrax (yet), but it hasn't been recced on Calufrax -- and that's exactly what these randomly generated fic recs are for! It's extremely funny, it manages to make Romana/Duggan perfectly in character, and the various reactions from Romana and Duggan in their post-coital conversation are priceless. Romana's dialogue is especially wonderful, as is Duggan's response to getting unexpectedly lucky.

Randomly generated character: Harry Sullivan
Fic: Five Times Sarah Lied to the Doctor About Harry
Author: vvj5 / [personal profile] lost_spook
Author's summary:There's absolutely nothing going on between Harry and Sarah, whatever the Doctor thinks.
Characters: Fourth Doctor, Sarah Jane Smith, Harry Sullivan
Rating: All ages
Spoilers: none
Length: 1379 words

Why the rec: The Doctor is jealous, and doesn't understand human behavior; Harry's a little slow on the uptake, as usual; and Sarah runs circles around them both in a set of vignettes that are charming and funny. Need I say more?

I'm in the mood for another randomly generated fic rec, and this time I'm doing something a little different -- instead of a single fic, I've decided to rec two drabbles. They're by different authors but they go together well, hitting the same tone and using the same two characters.

What is a randomly generated fic rec? Click here to find out. )

First, header information that applies to both drabbles:

Randomly generated character: Grace Holloway
Characters: Grace Holloway, the Eighth Doctor
Rating: All ages
Spoilers: The TV Movie
Length: 100 words

And now, the individual links and story summaries:

Fic #1: So THAT'S Where He Got Them!
Author: RTF
Author's summary:Because you've been wondering since 1996 where they came from.

Fic #2: The Gift
Author: Kittenmommy
Author's summary:Grace gives the Doctor a gift that he doesn't really want.

Why the rec: I'm not a huge fan of drabbles, but they have grown on me over time, and these are both examples of how good drabbles can be when they're done correctly. The first is a missing scene that fills in a small little hole from the TV Movie; the second could be a missing scene that plays off of the TV Movie's events. Both are clever and smile-inducing.

Characters: Rose Tyler, the Duplicate 10th Doctor

Length: 1045 words

Why the rec: Because it's hysterically funny? The author presents five possible scenarios for what happened after the TARDIS left that beach in Norway at the end of "Journey's End," and they're all priceless. Especially if you've read a post-"Journey's End" fic or two (or five).

It feels like I've been doing a lot of posting about my own stories lately, so time to post about somebody else's!

Randomly generated character: Fitz Kreiner
Fic: Zum Abschied
Author: schildkroet
Author's summary: Once, when he's feeling down, Fitz has a conversation with a stranger who can't help him.
Characters: Fitz Kreiner, the Doctor (10th)
Rating: All ages
Spoilers: None
Length: 2253 words

Why the rec: It's about what happens to the companions the Doctor leaves behind. I'm not familiar with Fitz Kreiner, and I'm also not familiar with the particular book referenced in the author's note for the story (EDA "Demontage"). Also, there's some German in the story, and I don't speak German. And yet, I still found this an incredibly powerful story. Go give it a try.

Randomly generated character: The Master (Roberts)
Fic: Within, the Enemy
Author: AstroGirl
Author's summary: An AU branching off from the TV movie, in which the Master succeeds in taking over the Doctor's body.
Characters: The Master, the Doctor
Rating: Teen
Spoilers: Spoilers for the TV Movie
Length: 2634 words

Why the rec: Because it's amazing. Assume the Master takes over the Doctor's body. What happens next? The Master, the Doctor, and the Master / Doctor relationship are all explored here in a new way, and it will have you on the edge of your seat for the whole fic. And the ending is utterly brilliant.

Why the rec: Because it's funny. Because it's true to the characters. And because this is absolutely what is going to happen to Maria in the future.

Randomly generated character: The TARDIS
Fic: Flight
Author: star
Author's summary: All things must die. Even the TARDIS.
Characters: The Doctor, the TARDIS
Rating: All ages
Spoilers: None
Length: 1106 words

Why the rec: It's a story told from the point of view of the TARDIS -- and we don't get nearly enough of those -- and yes it's sad, but it's also haunting and beautiful.

Randomly generated character: Turlough
Fic: Gadfly
Author: uktechgirl
Author's summary: The Five Doctors: missing scenes. Turlough meets the First Doctor, and gets educated all over again.
Characters: The First Doctor, Turlough
Rating: All ages
Spoilers: The Five Doctors.
Length: 1815 words

Why the rec: Even though the First Doctor and Turlough did meet in canon in "The Five Doctors," they had hardly any direct interaction on-screen. This fic rectifies that by showing us what happened when the two of them were left alone together while Five, Tegan and Susan were off to the Tomb of Rassilon. Turlough and One spark off each other incredibly well, but in among the snarky fun are some wonderful character moments and true insights into both of these exiles.
