The Eighth Doctor Adventures may be considered novel-length, high-quality published fanfiction with Original Characters. Some of the non-published fanfiction for them is pretty high-quality, too.

General Fics

Stories focused on the family and the friendly relationships of the cast. Plot-focused stories or light day-in-the-life stories. Pretty much anything that isn't focused on romance.

A Sky Full of Stars by Aces

  • Recommended by: Lucy Zephyr
  • Synopsis:

Fitz died.
Looking back on this later, he decided that was probably the stupidest thing he'd done in a fairly respectable career of doing really stupid things.
On the other hand, since he was still around with the opportunity to surpass even his own record, he decided on the whole to take his death philosophically.

  • Comments: A gorgeously realized crossover between Dead Like Me and the Eighth Doctor Adventures, in which Fitz is a grim reaper. It's in turns funny, sad, and bittersweet with several gut-punchy moments. Anyone who knows who Fitz is and has basic knowledge of Dead Like Me will love this.

Doctor Who and the Board Game of Death by Nostalgia and Edithmatilda

  • Recommended by: Lucy Zephyr
  • Synopsis: Anji, Fitz, and the Doctor play Monopoly.
  • Comments: Exactly What It Says on the Tin. To say Hilarity Ensues would be a massive understatement. Anji's an ethical capitalist, the Doctor's a hippy socialist, and Fitz would like to stop playing now.

Twenty True Stories: A Translation from the Aja'ib by kindkit

  • Recommended by: Lucy Zephyr
  • Synopsis: Twenty true stories of what happens after the Doctor meets a traveller. Set in the Obverse.
  • Comments: Taking a cue from the questions listed at the end of The Blue Angel, this is a series of what ifs related to the Master visiting the Obverse Doctor. Short but sweet and very much in the spirit of TBA.

And I Will No Other To Follow Me Where I'm Going by Aces

  • Recommended by: Lucy Zephyr
  • Synopsis: "Hang about," Fitz had asked once, very early on when this whole thing started. "Didn't you already destroy your planet, once?"
  • Comments: A brutal and stunning look at the Doctor and Fitz during the Time War. Dark, but extremely believable, and leads up to an (in my opinion) even better sequel, Face Another Day. Many people have written Fitz in the Time War, but this one is among the best.

come to me with remedies by Lucy Zephyr

  • Recommended by: Lullabee
  • Synopsis: A year's time in a blue house in a tiny English town. The ups and downs of the lives of a not-so-perpetual slacker, a daydream believer, and a terribly sensible trader.
  • Comments: If you've read The Blue Angel (and can find the time to read a fanfic that's almost as long as one of the actual EDAs!), you really have to read this.
