"A Man Who Wasn't There" {All-Ages}

Story: "A Man Who Wasn't There: An Alt!Series 2
Author: Coru (corusca)
Summary: The Doctor survives the Parting of the Ways and continues to adventure with Rose Tyler.
Characters/Pairings: Nine/Rose; the cast of Series 2
Categories: AU, Adventure, Multi-Chapter, Romance
Warnings: Work in Progress, a few vague references to Torchwood S2

Reason for recommendation: I've seen many attempts at re-writing a series, but they usually seem to fall flat. Characterizations often seem quite off, and the plots come off feeling unoriginal. The author, however, has succeeded in writing a alternate Series Two that proves not only to be brilliant and dynamic, but manages to enrich each of the original stories. Nine is not just a stand-in for Ten; he is himself and reacts to the various situations as Nine would. Storylines are changed to take into account the many differences in personality and behavior, and yet every episode is recognizable and wonderful.

Additionally, the author has added Tardisodes between each episode to fill in the missing scenes and quiet moments between adventures. At the moment, the season is only about a third done, but it is well worth reading now.

And if you prefer, you can also read it at the author's fic journal.
