First, a word from [livejournal.com profile] nonelvis, your friendly neighbourhood [livejournal.com profile] calufrax mod:

"You've all just been waiting for an opportunity to rec on [info]calufrax, haven't you? Well, that time has come: the comm has slots starting on March 26, open to anyone, new and old reccers alike.

All you need to do is pick four to seven of your favorite fics on Teaspoon and tell us why you love these stories. All characters, pairings, genres, eras, and ratings are welcome, as long as the stories are well-written (that is, the author should know how to spell, format and the difference between "it's" and "its") and avoid attacking any particular character or pairing in a malicious way.

If you're interested, please leave a comment on the sign-up post. (You'll need to join the comm to see that post, but membership is open.)"

[original post here]

If you've been debating whether or not to sign up to rec at calufrax - just do it! I had a great time reccing this week. And now I've popped my calufrax cherry I can absolutely give you some pointers on sifting out the Teaspoon's hidden treasures, and maintaining that elusive balance you need when reccing for a general interest comm.

Next, a word from me, on behalf of [livejournal.com profile] three_settings, the comm for reccing adult-rated Whoniverse fanfiction located anywhere on the web:

Guys, I think I have done good.
ms_prue: (oh yes)
FYI, Feedbooks have the following titles available as free ebook downloads.

Doctor Who and the Empire of Glass by Andy Lane
Doctor Who: The Sands of Time by Justin Richards
Doctor Who and the Scales of Injustice by Gary Russell
Doctor Who: Human Nature by Paul Cornell
Doctor Who: Nightshade by Mark Gatiss

I'm reading Human Nature right now and it's fabulous. I'm hopelessly in love with Benny. An excerpt:

[Bernice is at a beer tent, killing some time waiting for the Doctor to return from the market and having just gotten hold of a pint.]

Company is always an issue at this juncture. There's no point, in my view, in being a solitary drinker. You can do that at home, given a certain degree of sadness which I wouldn't dream of sinking to. Usually. Well, three out of ten times. And it's been a difficult time for me lately. Anyway, there were the usual tables of dangerous-looking space pirates, penniless backpackers with their glasses of iced water, and traders waving their hands and complaining that business wasn't what it once was. Most of them were aliens of some sort.

Therefore, it was with a rather xenophobic sort of glee that I came across a table whose occupants were doubly interesting. They were A: human and B: female. They looked like they all came from different places, and had clustered together out of the familiar realisation that internal gonads are best, actually. So I sat down and introduced myself. Professor Bernice Summerfield, FRAS (Fairly Rotten At Scrabble), current occupier of the Proxima University Chair Of Archaeology (it's in my room, by the begonias), holder of the Martian Gallantry Medal (I found one and thought I thoroughly deserved it). They were suitably impressed. They laughed out loud.

Title: Disbelief Suspension Bridge
Author: [livejournal.com profile] ms_prue
Rating: PG (one f-word!)
Characters/pairings: Matt, Karen, Arthur, Howard, Vince and Bollo
Genre: crack-RPF-crossover
Summary: Matt borrows the TARDIS to see a gorilla about a hat. (1200 words)

[A/N: This idea has been lurking in my head since January. IDEK. Pretty sure I can't claim credit for the original idea of a Who/Boosh crossover but I can't remember where it came from. Matt really can drive the TARDIS. I know because I read it somewhere on the internet.]

Title: Tell me what success looks like
Author: [livejournal.com profile] ms_prue
Rating: G
Characters/pairings: Amy/Rory
Genre: Character study and some gap-filling.
Summary: Set during The Girl Who Waited and also after The God Complex. Success looks quite ginger.




"I'm not going to help you," she told her younger self. "What have you done to deserve it? You can't imagine a life without the Doctor. You've travelled the universe but you haven't actually lived. But I have. And I want to keep on living. If I get out of here I'm not going to waste any more of my life. You think I don't mean it, about hating him, but I do. I remember being blindly in love with him like you are now. The honeymoon that'll never end. It will end. You will change your mind about the Doctor."
"You don't know that."
"Of course I do. Assuming he can pull this off, assuming he can rescue us, then what? Sooner or later he's going to abandon you, accidentally or on purpose, and then what will you do? For heaven's sake Amelia Pond, grow up."

The worst thing about getting lectured by a future-you is they always turn out to be right.

"I'm going to start a shop," she told Rory one night as they settled into bed in their normal house in a normal street on a normal planet where the future extended out in a straight line, unravelling unstoppably before them.
"Okay."
"Okay?"
"Yeah."
"We've got barely any money, with my A-levels I'd be lucky to get into a hairdressing course, and you're okay with me opening a shop?"
"Yeah," said Rory. "If that's what you want to do. I think you'd be good at it."
"Seriously?"
"Seriously."
"You need money to open a shop."
"I could sell the car. That should give you some cash down for rent and stock and things."
"Oh my god, you're the worst investor ever! You don't even know what I'm going to sell. And how will you get to work?"
"I'll buy a bicycle. What are you going to sell?"
She racked her brain for the silliest thing she could think of.
"Handbags. And perfume."
"Okay then. As long as it's the real stuff and not the shoddy knock-offs."
"Rory Williams," she said, covering her face with her hands, "You are unbelievable!"
"But it's a good idea. You'd have the only handbag and perfume shop in town. You'll make a mint."
"You really think so?"
"Yes."
"And you're willing to bet the car on it?"
"And the house. Well, maybe not the whole house. Half the house. But I do believe you can do anything you set your mind to, Amy."
"Anything? What about my own designer handbag and perfume label?"
"Anything."
She considered that for a moment. Suddenly the future didn't seem so dull and linear after all.
"Thanks," she told him, reaching across the sheets to squeeze his hand. "That means a lot."
"Does this mean you're going to start carrying a handbag when we go out instead of shoving all your stuff in my pockets?"
"Course not."
"Right."
"G'night, Rory."
"G'night."

Disclaimers: I don't have a literature degree. Please don't feel you have to read this - I'm just writing it down so I can re-read it down the track and marvel at how quaint my thoughts were way back when. If you feel like clicking something and being properly amused, click here (thanks to [livejournal.com profile] owlsie for putting me on to the Paint Doctor Who tumblr!). Otherwise, proceed...

I watched The God Complex and then this happened. And when I say "this", I mean 350-odd words of Doctor/Master slash, set immediately post-TGC. Yeah, look, I didn't know I wrote slash either. o.0

Oh Moffat, Gatiss, MacRae what have you done to me? I swear I have - *counts on fingers* - four WIPs on the go, not all directly related to the last three episodes, but gosh, I don't think I'd be so inspired without them. That hiatus was the absolute pits. Anyway, thoughts and things:

Obligatory spoiler warning up to The Girl Who Waited goes here... )

ms_prue: (hellcats flygirl)

Title: Flying Lesson

Author: ms_prue

[A/N: Owlsie drew an awesome aviatrix!River and it all sort of followed on from there...]

 

 

"Have you ever flown before, kid?" )

[info]speccygeekgrrl asked if she could record 'No Contest' (rated adult) as an audiofic for her kink bingo, to which I happily agreed, and you can find the link to the audiofic here at her fanworks journal.
