Fic Series rec, Doctor Who

Fandom Category: Doctor Who
Pairing: Rose Tyler/The Doctor, Others
Fic Title: The Blonde Girl, Defender of Earth, The Companion Connection, Time and the Trickster
Author: Lumendea
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7098591/1/The-Blonde-Girl
http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7290668/1/Defender-of-the-Earth
http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7491055/1/The-Companion-Connection
http://www.fanfiction.net/s/8647456/1/Time-and-the-Trickster
Rating/Warning(s): PG-PG13, spoilers for most of the ENTIRE series. Violence.
Genre: Retelling, action/adventure, AU, romance, friendship, sci-fi.
WIP?: The first three stories are complete, and the last one is updated regularly!

Why This Must Be Read: Not only are all these stories epic and very well written, it's an amazing alternate backstory for Rose that draws in the Doctor's other companions. It's Rose-centric and is chuck full of friendships, UNIT, companions, various forms of the Doctor, alien invasions, and running for your life. But the shining star in this is Rose. Her evolution and life, and the way that she's just fantastic. Plus, the author's promised at least three more "seasons" (giant-sized stories like The Companion Connection) and considering her earlier work, I believe her.

ETA: Updated 11/19/2012.

Day 18: Swan Song by Horky (Teen)

Fandom Category: Final Fantasy VII/Advent Children
Pairing: Tifa Lockhart/Cloud Strife, Aerith Gainsborough/Zack Fair
Fic Title: Swan Song
Author: Horky
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/4494049/1/Swan-Song
Rating/Warning(s): Teen. Angst, major character death.
Genre: AU. Romance/Tragedy.
WIP?: No. Completed MC.

Why This Must Be Read: Imagine a world very similar to Final Fantasy VII, except bloodlines were muddled up a generation ago, and Tifa Lockhart is born with the ability to see how the people around her will die. Life goes about as well as you can imagine, with her preknowledge hanging over her head, until a whirlwind of strangers make her care about them and try even harder to change destiny.

I love the world-building and the doomed, haunted feel of the story -- just perfect for this plot. The romance is slow and believable, and Tifa and her three supporting characters are treated with such great respect. It is a treat to spot the differences and the similarities.

Day Eighteen: They Never Cry Out Loud by yonwords (PG-13)

Day 18 - An Alternate Universe fic.

Fandom Category: Alias
Pairing: Irina Derevko/Jack Bristow
Fic Title: They Never Cry Out Loud
Author: yonwords
Link: Here
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13, character deaths
Genre: Angst, romance, drama
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: This is an AU in the sense that the finale never happened (and who doesn't wish it never did, uh?). It's a beautiful fic that offers five different ends for our Spyrents. It made me want to rewatch s2 and the other episodes with Irina, and to hunt for websites from back in the day (but of course they disappeared). Just a slight warning: tissues are needed for some parts. ;)
