Why This Must Be Read: Adam Adamant Lives! was a 1960s show - he's a Edwardian adventurer who's been defrosted in the 60's, she's a swinging nightclub DJ, and together with Adam's limerick loving manservant, Simms, they fight crime! And incidentally, are thoroughly adorable and very pretty together, hence shippage.

This is a great, entertaining fic in which Georgie and Simms rush to save Adam from the horrors of a 60s hippy commune, a step that leads inevitably to a fake marriage (it's either that or group sky clad dancing) that rapidly becomes not very fake at all. It's humorous, fun and sweet, just like the source.

Why This Must Be Read: As the summary says, "Everyone knows that what you do for hypothermia when you're huddling in a shack is to strip down naked and huddle under a blanket with the only other person there! Doesn't everyone know that?" Adam and Georgie find themselves trapped in a fanfic cliche; Adam is appalled but Georgie's ready to play along. Brilliantly done, and, again, fun, sweet and in character.

Mods - I'll need fandom and pairing tags, if possible, please!

Doctor Who, 15 recs, Various pairings

I'm afraid I fell off the wagon with the trope squares, so in order to get some recs in, get a bingo, and not spam anyone, here's a giant tropey list of Doctor Who recs with various pairings across the show's fifty years.

Fandom: Doctor Who (2005)
Pairing: Missy/Twelfth Doctor
Title: Love/Hate
Author: Nostalgia

Rating/Warning(s): Teen | Possibly dub-con (par for the pairing)
Word Count/WIP?: 3552

Why This Must Be Read: Missy blackmails the Doctor into a romantic holiday and it's not even a good one. And yet somehow the Doctor enjoys it more than he cares to admit. It's funny, sharp, and the voices are spot on. ("A drink for my... annoying woman in black, please.")

Dear mods, I do hope this is all okay! (And I haven't even managed a bingo yet...) I'm afraid some more pairing tags are needed - Missy/The Doctor, Emma Grayling/Alec Palmer, Jackie Tyler/The Doctor, Liz Shaw/Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart, Lucie Miller/The Doctor, Peri Brown/The Doctor. Thanks!
