Tenth Doctor / Donna  
Courting by Sykira
Rating:  Teen
Progress:  WIP series, completed individual stories
Summary:  The Doctor and Donna embark on a slow and respectful progression in their relationship, to something more than friends.

Rec Notes:  This is one of those fics that seems to be stolen from the Austen genre a bit, without it being period.  It's very romantic, very innocent, and just ultimately fluffy.  

Only Human
by Sykira and LouieCat
Rating:  Adult
Progress:  Complete
Summary:  Donna is captured into servitude on an alien planet. Doctor/Donna romance implied.

Rec Notes:  The Doctor has to save Donna after she's captured and put into slavery.  It's been a long time for her, and she's very ill and doesn't believe that the Doctor, or her travels with him are real.  Earth is a dream and this is a lovely fic about the Doctor earning back her trust in order to rescue her.  It's a fic about building trust and obviously a hurt/comfort fic.  The portrayal of how gentle the Doctor is with Donna is beautifully written and is one of my favorites because he obviously cares so much for her - if only she would believe he is who he says he is.

Prophecy and Change
by Sykira
Rating:  Adult
Progress:  Complete
Summary:  My first long story, it's dark, "shag or die” angsty and uncomfortable, and possibly triggery in a dubcon way.

Rec Notes:  Who doesn't love a "Shag or Die" fic?  This one is my favorite, mainly because the Doctor is so romantically gentle.  I love the way he treats Donna and I love how Donna keeps warming up to him.  Trust is a huge part of this fic, and Sykira does such a lovely job at making it emotionally uplifting despite the angst of the story.  It's beautiful - it's got Jack and Martha as supporting characters, and I just love this story.  It's definitely one that I keep going back to on a rainy day and it always makes me feel wonderful by the time I reach the end.  This is the first story of the Prophecy and Change series, and although there are several stories, and each is completed, I would still consider the series a WIP.  There is so much unexplored still and so much that I want to happen - I hope the author continues the series and gives us more of this universe to play around in.  But if you haven't read it - this is a must-read.

Somnolence by Sykira
Rating:  Teen
Progress:  Complete
Summary:  Set in the time between defeating the enemy in JE and returning to the parallel universe. Contains spoilers up to the end of season 4 only.

Rec Notes:  I love how the Doctor cares for Donna in this story.  It feels sexual, without the sex.  It is gorgeously written and deals with the Time Lord mind in Donna's head, and the complications it causes her.  I love this fic, mainly because there are so few stories out there that give the Doctor and Donna a real chance to get together.  Yes, canon shows that they are only friends, but what's great about fanfiction is it can take those characters an extra step and if it's done right, it's very romantic and believable.

Oh my goodness! Wow. I don't quite know what to say, except thank you! Both for reccing me and for the thoughtful reviews.

You are right that Prophecy and Change is a WIP in the sense that I have a lot written of a sequel, just lack time to finish it, sadly.

I have been more than a little bit battered by fandom silliness recently and to have someone rec my stories and say such nice things is such an honor, you have made me very happy, thank you with all my heart.

It's such a pleasure to have you respond to something I reviewed! How exciting! I would LOVE to see more of prophecy and change and hope that one day you will continue it, as it has to be one of my most favorite fics of all time.

This recommendation list is a WIP (lol) and I hope to keep working on it. Thanks so much for the kind words, and thank you so much for everything you've written that I've had the ultimate pleasure of reading.
