Seriously, Livejournal's foremost Doctor Who fanfiction reccing community needs fresh reccers - if you haven't already, please read the below post by the comm's admin [personal profile] nonelvis and give it your serious consideration:


Originally posted by [personal profile] nonelvis at WE ARE ESSENTIALLY OUT OF RECCERS. THIS IS NOT A DRILL.
I hate to capslock at you, but seriously: we're out. [personal profile] clocketpatch will be reccing for the next couple of weeks, and [personal profile] ffutures has graciously volunteered for another stint in September, but other than that, my reccing calendar is empty.

Please, please, please: if you've ever thought about reccing but have never stepped forward, now's the time. If you've recced before and want to try again, now's the time. If you're not sure if you want to rec, contact me, and I'll talk you into it answer any questions you have about it. And if you have friends who might want to rec, please share this post with them.

Reccing periods last two weeks; complete rules and sign-up instructions in this post. Thanks, everyone, for any help you can offer here.

Tumblr, Facebook, Google+, and other users reading this: you don't need a LiveJournal account to rec! If you're interested in reccing, you can comment in the sign-up post, leave me an Ask, or email me at nonelvis42 on Gmail. (Note: if you're a Facebook user who wants to volunteer, please contact me by email; I have no Facebook account, and LJ doesn't send OpenID users comment notifications, so I have no reliable way of reaching you beyond email.)

Title: Torchwood 1917: The Blood-Dimmed Tide
Chapter Eleven
(All chapters)
Rating: Teen
Characters: WW1-era Torchwood: Gerald Carter, Harriet Derbyshire, Lydia Childs, Douglas Caldwell, Dr Charles Quinn; classic Who monsters to remain anonymous for the moment
Genres: Action/Adventure,Drama,General,Horror,Mystery,Series
Warnings: Explicit Violence,Swearing (It's...Torchwood! :D)

Word count: 33,914 (so far)
Author's Notes:
After a rather long hiatus, the next mind-boggling chapter! In which Gerald and Harriet continue their investigations around the ominously-named Devil's Cove, and meet yet another new character without actually coming any closer to solving the central mystery. It's like the WWI Twin Peaks!

Boosting the signal - if you're so inclined, please check out the 3rd Annual Eleven/Romana Ficathon:

http://eleven-romana.livejournal.com/7493.html

To quote the esteemed [livejournal.com profile] clocketpatch, its creator and proprietor:

The time when we gather together to write fic (and make art) about Eleven-era characters meeting up with Romana. Why do we do this? Because Eleven is awesome and Romana is awesome, therefore putting them together must obviously = double the awesome and the fic results from past years certainly support this conclusion. So, without further ado, I open day registrations for the third annual Eleven_Romana ficathon!

Rules:

All entries must contain at least one Eleven era character interacting with Romana. This can be Romana I, II, III or an author created version. There is no minimum length requirements, but anything over 1000 words must be under a cut or link. There are no rating restrictions, but you must cut and warn for anything over PG-13.


You know you want to...

Author's Notes: After something of a gap, the next part!

Summary: As the Great War rages on, Torchwood Three discover more frightening things than U-boats lurking beneath the cruel sea

Author's Notes: In which Gerald picks Lydia's brains for information on fishy deities, Bible quotes and the poetry of John Milton (Lydia knows all), Harriet demonstrates yet again that she is far from being just a pretty face, and we attempt to sort-of recreate a classic Who moment through the medium of sandwiches. Any errors in matters of the Welsh language or indeed mysterious "true life" tales of the sea are entirely down to my own over-reliance on Wikipedia and Google's translation tool. :)

And while you're waiting for the Teaspoon mods to validate - shocking evidence relating to this very case, only recently unearthed from the Torchwood Archives:

And yes, the sandwiches are sort of a fanw*nky thing...

Author's Notes: In which Gerald and Harriet finally meet the unfortunate survivor from that U-boat that fell foul of the "curse of the teaser" right back in Chapter 1. If you have a nodding acquaintance with a particular era of oldschool Who you'll already have guessed who the as-yet unseen alien threat might be (and the end of this part will only confirm your guess!); the thing with the scary pictures is taken from a related story from the same era. I do not, alas, speak German - the German-language dialogue here is all taken from Google's translation tool. I tried to double-check all of it, but some howlers may have crept through...

Author's Notes: The next part, in which Harriet reflects on the war, Gerald uses an epithet directed at the French and we come a step closer to meeting the German survivor alluded to in previous parts. And yes, Lieutenant Millington, as you may guess from the name, his apparent misogyny and paranoia and general air of creepiness, is indeed the bloke out of Curse of Fenric, before he got older and got promotions.

Back, by popular demand! Well, by (a) demand, but having any demand at all makes me feel popular. ;D I said in the notes for the last part that at this rate this story might be finished by 2012 - that seems a tad overoptimistic now! But here we are once again, with Four and Romana and Sontarans and songs too! Although things take a slightly darker turn here as "the enemy" finally turns up to the party...

Summary: As the Great War rages on, Torchwood Three discover more frightening things than U-boats lurking beneath the cruel sea
Word count: 13,521 (up to now)
Author's Notes: In which the team briefing continues, and is mercifully over by the end of the chapter. Again, possibly a tad too much "aww, my mostly-OC characters, it's been too long..." and less moving the story forward, but still. As far as I can make out, the idea of the Bermuda Triangle wasn't really invented until the 1950s, so Lydia is a bit vague about it here, and we know the Mary Celeste was down to either time-travelling Daleks or Sapphire & Steel so take your pick. As for Harriet's diehard support for the WW1 war effort, it's the main thing I take away from her minute or so of screen time - she certainly seemed very keen on Field Marshal Haig anyway.

Author's Notes: In which Lydia starts to lecture the troops. Quite a bit of character stuff here and Lydia's thoughts on her fellow Team Torchwood members (yes, yes, I know they're all de facto OCs...but I like 'em ;D), although I'll admit the plot doesn't advance much past the last chapter. My retelling here of the story of Room 40 and the RN's caginess when it came to actually using the intelligence it provided is basically true to the best of my knowledge.

And while you're waiting for the hard-pressed Teaspoon mods to validate, an illustration in similar vein to my earlier Sea Devils effort:

Author's Notes: In which Gerald receives the lowdown from his boss in London, Colonel Enderby. Enderby is my OC, I'm afraid, although he and his boss, Control, are named in honour of characters from John Le Carre's George Smiley oeuvre. "Room 40", of course, was real. If you know which body of water the real Urquhart Castle overlooks, you may have an inkling of the sort of direction this story may be headed in.

Author's Notes: In which we are reintroduced to Gerald and Harriet and other members of the Retro-Torchwood gang. To those of you new to the crazy thrill-ride that is Retro-Torchwood, Gerald and Harriet appear (briefly) onscreen in the Torchwood S2 episode "To The Last Man", while the rest are drawn from the dubiously-canonical fluff that appeared on the BBC TW website back when the episode aired, those many moons ago. Although it is fair to say that I have...fleshed them all out a bit. So yes, unashamed Gerald/Harriet shipping. And bonus points to anyone identifying the classic Who story and the famous "real life" WW1-related paranormal case obliquely referenced by Lydia and Harriet near the end of the chapter...

Author's Notes: After something of a hiatus, the Retro-Torchwood team (those stiff-upper-lipped chaps and gels glimpsed during TW Season 2) ride again. This is actually something I started writing last year and abandoned after a few pages, but it has risen from the grave. And it starts with a bit of warfare on the high seas; as always, never be in the teaser. I'm sure some of you will guess the identity of the alien menace straight away. Those of you who have seen Das Boot may recognise a reference or two. Wrong war, but still.

It's sort of a sequel to my earlier Eleven/Romana stories Fearful Symmetry and Stop Me If You've Heard This One, generally looking at how the surviving present-day Romana in those might react to the events of the Season 6 finale (and if you want to know how she survived, read those stories - shameless plug there! :D). And a bit of Doctor/Romana too, because that's what I'm into.
Summary: As the Doctor approaches his big day - in more ways than one - he turns to one of his old friends for help. And she remembers some of the times they had. Spoilers for The Wedding of River Song.
