MAIN CHARACTERS: Fox Mulder

FIC SUMMARY: The public is wonderfully tolerant. It forgives everything except genius. ~ Oscar Wilde

RECCER'S NOTES: A profiler!Mulder story told from the point of view of one of the detectives assigned on the same case as he observes his colleagues' reactions to the famous Spooky Mulder. An enjoyable little one-shot with fine narrative voice and some memorable lines. (Detective Carr shows up in a sequel story, Mileage, featuring Scully as the Coolest Lecturer Ever.)

MAIN CHARACTERS: Donna Noble, The Doctor

FIC SUMMARY: Temping: an underrated profession. Five things that Donna has learned in her time as an agency worker.

RECCER'S NOTES:

A fic that focuses less on 'fixing' what canon did to Donna, and instead just focuses on Donna herself. This is brilliant, and sad, and perfectly demonstrates exactly what is so tragic about Donna's ending.

MAIN CHARACTERS: Fox Mulder, Dana Scully, Dean Winchester, Sam Winchester, John Winchester

FIC SUMMARY: Sam & Dean and Mulder & Scully get in each other's way during a case.

RECCER'S NOTES:

Oh man - perfect Mulder and Scully. The observations of the Winchester clan are amazing as well, and I love that somebody has taken the time to combine these two fandoms. Perfect and subtle, I could paste any given paragraph from this fic to demonstrate why I love it so much.

MAIN CHARACTERS: Donna Noble, the Doctor

FIC SUMMARY: Everyone asks where she’s been, lately, and Donna finds herself saying “the usual” so many times she wonders if it might be better to get it tattooed on her forehead.

RECCER'S NOTES:

I love fics about Donna's life after the Doctor, and this fic shows her rebuilding herself slowly, discovering a knack for things she's not sure she should know, like a hidden talent for foreign languages. It's got a really nice pace to it and I like that her solo travels are what set the foundation for rediscovering the travels she had with Ten.

Amazing. Beautifully written, and a fantastic idea, with great references to Mulder's canon timeline scattered throughout. Just really, really beautiful, touching and well done.
