Doctor Who and a few HP recs
Doctor Who Fanfiction featuring either Mickey or Martha or both:
Triple Date Hell by Stephy-Lou Clark Weasley
pairings: Mickey/Martha, Jack/Donna, 10/Rose
Summary (as given by author):Donna gets in a cat fight, the Doctor is being annoying, Jack is flirting, Rose and Martha are talking about him and a Slitheen gate crashes, can this triple date get any worse?
Why I liked it:
It's funny and playful yet the interaction between everyone is in character and enjoyable. Despite not being mentioned by name in the summary, Mickey is the point of view character.
The Monologues: Dark Red Roses by Antigone.Rose
pairings: (past: Mickey/Rose) implied: Doctor/Rose
Summary (as given by author):"He though of the girl he had loved, of his Rose. She was long gone now. In her place was a woman with enough courage to save a planet, enough bravery to stop a war and enough strength to love a man who could never tell her that he loved her too."
Why I liked it: An exellent look at Mickey's thoughts during that time where his character grew of screne. It's sad and poignant but it leaves you really feeling what Mickey must have been going through at the time.
Dancing in the Rain by Black Alya Wolf
pairings:RoseMartha friendship, passing mentions of 10Rose and a little of JackRose.
Summary (as given by author):When she was eleven, she caught pneumonia. This was the first substantial thing Martha Jones learned about Rose Tyler.
Why I liked it: A fic presenting a friendship between an 11 year old Rose and Martha who is working as a doctor while trapped in the nineties. This presents Martha getting to know Rose without realising that it's the Rose that she is jealous of in canon and shows a growing friendship and understanding between eachother from Season 3 until Journey's End. It's well written and the language is just beautiful.
Martha Jones: Cement Mixer by Candi Lewis
Summary (as given by author):"I knew her," Martha said when the Doctor told her about Rose. "It was complicated." Rose/Martha.
Why I liked it: Rose/Martha Femslash, which is hard to find at all, which is well written and in character that takes place both pre and post canon? Heck yes sign me up! It's lovely brilliant and well written.
Appreciation by Stephy-Lou Clark Weasley
pairings: Mickey/Martha, 10/Rose
Summary (as given by author):AU. set after GitF and FoB, Martha and Rose accidentally end up in the wrong TARDISes. as S3Doctor attempts to keep Rose, S2Doctor, Martha and Mickey try to get her back. 10Rose, Mickey/Martha
Why I liked it: Martha/Rose friendship without jealousy or bashing either Rose or Martha which also plays with emotions and makes me cry.
Companionable Moment by Jessa L' Rynn
pairings: Martha/Sarah Jane Smith friendship
Summary (as given by author):Two companions have a talk. Another one buys groceries. A revealing moment in the life of Dr. Martha Jones. This fic is a response to the July II challenge set for me by rquestforme.
Why I liked it: It's mostly conversation but it's funny and makes me smile. :-D
Always There by Bobbymcfoogle
Summary (as given by author): Rose and Mickey during "Girl in the Fireplace". Angst, oneshot-ish. Go on ... read it! What's the worst that could happen?
Why I liked it:Sad post GITF angst. Sad and a very good portrayal of the relationship between Rose and Mickey.
Martha and Milligan by Bobbymcfoogle
Summary (as given by author): How Martha and Tom came to be a couple. Oneshot; please, please, please read and review! My stories always have a serious lack of reviews!
Why I liked it: A short piece about Martha and Tom after Martha left the Doctor but before the episodes in season four where she's back.
Facing Facts by The Bitter Rose
pairings: Mickey/Rose (past) 10/Rose
Summary (as given by author): Knowing something to be true in principle and seeing it for himself have become two painfully different things.
Why I liked it: Sad and angsty, Mickey centric piece.
