The TARDIS BigBang challenge has been open about two days now, which means I have recs!

First, of course, [personal profile] copperbadge's Sing Morning out of Night.
Torchwood, New Who, Sarah Jane Adventures | PG-13 | gen with canon pairings | 31,000 words

A strange deck of Tarot cards, a dying TARDIS, and UNIT's invasion of a coastal Welsh village lead Torchwood to investigate the disappearance of the Doctor, with some help from Sarah Jane and Luke Smith. This is a new incarnation of the Doctor, however, and none of them are prepared for what they find as they unravel the mystery.

A fic like we are used from Sam; well plotted, well thought out and good OC's. Little drama, despite some of the plot. Well worth the read!

Second is And Indeed there Will be Time by [personal profile] kaydeefalls.
Torchwood | R | Jack/Ianto (+ team) | 43,000 words

In 1919, Harriet Derbyshire was killed while investigating the disappearance of Torchwood Four in Dublin. In 2009, UNIT pulls a dying man out of the Irish Sea with a one-word message: Torchwood. Martha joins up with Jack's team in Cardiff to track down the errant branch of the organization – before a time-traveling race of aliens can change the course of history as we know it.

This story has some of the latest New Who canon thrown in, so if you're not familiar with that you'll miss out! This fic contains time travel and is really good at keeping everything connected for the reader, without being too simple. An enjoying read!

Third, a fic by [personal profile] etharei, who is well known in several fandoms for her excellent writing.Guard Them, and Him Within is her entry in the BigBang challenge.
Torchwood | NC-17 | Jack/Ianto | 38,000 words

Ianto Jones finds himself far from home. But there are guns, aliens, and more Strange Happenings than one can shake a stick at, so sometimes it’s like he hasn’t left. Of stories within stories, and the adventures of small characters.

If that summary hasn't got you salivating yet, the turning of clichés into plottwists and the handling of the OC's, alien and human alike like only she can should have you running over!

The fourth story is one I just finished reading, written by [personal profile] aeshna_uk, And Seven for a Secret.
Torchwood | R | gen | 58,000 words

If you are reading this then I am dead, and with my death dies a promise I made a long, long time ago... When Ben Haldane is left a cryptic note in his grandfather's will, it leads him to a story far stranger than he could ever have imagined.

This is a story that gives information on the Jack Harkness that was with Torchwood during WW2, when this story is set. Told through the eyes of a soldier, this is a compelling, adventurous and melancholy tale. It combines several of my favourite things, namely Jack, WW2 stories and really good OC's.

The fifth and last story is certainly not the least: The Perhelion Variations by [personal profile] valderys.
Torchwood | R | Ianto/Jack, Ianto/John | 28,000 words

After Tosh and Owen's deaths, Jack finally thinks that the team is beginning to recover, but he might be speaking too soon. Meanwhile, in the future, Ianto has discovered why the twenty first century is when it all changes...

I can't say too much, because that would give the plot away, but this is another one of those stories that turn a cliché upside down. The pacing is excellent and the characterisation was spot on.

Now off with you to read and leave feedback, because they all deserve it!
I'd been drifiting away from the Harry Potter fandom for some time; I still read fic, but only of known authors or from recs. I actually found a new fandom:
