Doctor Who, 4 recs, various pairings (and one crossover)

Fandom: Doctor Who
Pairing: Clara Oswald/Danny Pink
Title: Postcards from Clara
Author: navaan
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/2617466
Rating/Warning(s): General Audiences
Word Count/WIP?: 1,603 (complete)
Recced By: stars_inthe_sky

Why This Must Be Read: Like I think a lot of Whovians, I didn’t have a ton of emotion invested in this pairing—until I read this fic, at which point I’m so happy to have read a fic that’s just nice as well as happy, and to see a characterization of Danny that’s neither Mickey 2.0 nor Rory 2.0.

Fandom: Doctor Who
Pairing: River Song/The Doctor (Eleven)
Title: Equation Heaven Sent
Author: Inkfire
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/1048920
Rating/Warning(s): Explicit (sexy sex)
Word Count/WIP?: 11,227 (complete)
Recced By: stars_inthe_sky

Why This Must Be Read: Besides the holy smokes this is perfect smut, this fic is a poetic and insightful exploration of a ship that didn’t get nearly enough screen time, and it never forgets how the couple’s story ends (or begins).

Fandom: Doctor Who
Pairing: Reinette/The Doctor (Ten)
Title: A Door Once Opened
Author: Arien
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/2636984
Rating/Warning(s): General Audiences
Word Count/WIP?: 2,823 (complete)
Recced By: stars_inthe_sky

Why This Must Be Read: I’m not a huge fan of “The Girl in the Fireplace,” but I think I might’ve been if it ended like this—giving Reinette the chance to see the stars and become more than she got to in canon. Bonus points for one of my favorite lines in a Whofic ever: “You have the entire universe organised, like pins on a map?!” “Not yet.”

Fandom: Doctor Who/Parks and Recreation
Pairing: Leslie Knope/Ben Wyatt
Title: Four Times Either Leslie or Ben was Doctor Who (and One Time Neither Was)
Author: nutriyum_addict
Link: http://nutriyum-addict.livejournal.com/16358.html
Rating/Warning(s): Mild R for some sex
Word Count/WIP?: 3,500 (complete)
Recced By: stars_inthe_sky

Why This Must Be Read: This fic is so much fun—it plays with the things we love about both fandoms and the characters brilliantly, while keeping the shippy bits in the forefront. And the last part is absolutely lovely.
