Highlander

Title: Friendly Drink
Author: KerrAvonson
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 450
Characters: Ninth Doctor, Rose Tyler, Methos, Duncan Macleod

Amusing vignette – the confusion of non-linear meetings for time travellers and immortals… (The author has also written two drabble crossovers with Methos and the Doctor: Geodesy – the First Doctor in the Library of Alexandria – and Fall, a double drabble featuring the Second Doctor and Methos in the Himalayas).

Title: Twisting Timelines
Author: amaresu
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 1737
Characters: Tenth Doctor, Martha Jones, Methos (slight Methos/Martha)

I don’t really know Highlander (still) but this is a well-written, thoughtful crossover, with Martha and Methos (and the Doctor) meeting in a non-linear way, not unlike River Song and the Doctor would later.

 

Sapphire & Steel December 7, 2011

Title: Pets
Author: hearts_blood
Rating: All ages
Word Count:
Characters: Fourth Doctor, Steel, Sarah Jane Smith

An excellent and interesting short crossover, but it will make a lot more sense if you have seen Assignment Three of Sapphire & Steel. (So also has some mild spoilers for that story.) But I like the meeting and the way it works, because the two universes aren’t as easy to mesh as they seem on appearances.

Title: Interlude in Café-Space
Author: Annariel
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 665
Characters: Romana II, K9, Sapphire, Steel

In which Romana provides a neat and well-done fixit for Sapphire & Steel’s final episode – so beware spoilers if you’re unfamiliar with the crossover show.

 

Bujold – Vorkosigan series

Title: The Lady and the Temp
Author: Altariel
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 1560
Characters: Tenth Doctor, Donna, Cordelia, Gregor the Great

Hugely enjoyable and well written short crossover, even for someone like me who’s never read the books.

Title: Another Time
Author: belantana
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 671
Characters: Tenth Doctor, Jo Portman

A brief encounter on a train that is perfectly, perfectly in character for both and rather lovely, playing on the fact that Tallulah and Jo were both played by Miranda Raison.

Title: Outmanoeuvred
Author: vvj5
Rating: All ages
Word Count: Drabble
Characters: Sarah Jane Smith, Harry Pearce

Sarah Jane meets an undercover spook in the 80s.

 

Dalziel & Pascoe / Reginald Hill July 20, 2011

Title: Untitled
Author: tree_and_leaf
Rating: PG
Word Count: 300
Characters: Eleventh Doctor, Amy Pond, Andrew Dalziel

I’m not especially familiar with the novels or TV version, but I didn’t have to be to enjoy a very entertaining ficlet. Somehow there’s always something about a TV detective finding he’s got the Doctor to contend with that never grows old…

 

Buffy

Title: Ten Trips Still To Be Taken
Author: atraphoenix
Rating: All ages / PG
Word Count: 3114
Characters: Tenth Doctor, Drusilla

It’s an odd combination, but it works, and the use of Drusilla’s POV gives us the Doctor and his travels in a new light. Beautiful, and clever, and sinister.

Title: Apocalypse: The bird in the box
Author: Calapine
Rating: PG / All ages
Word Count: 3276
Characters: Harry Sullivan, Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart, Sergeant Benton, Liz Shaw, Rupert Giles.

A dark and Doctor-less UNIT AU crossover, which is very well-written and not without hope. It’s also an especially good Harry story – well-characterised, and not an imbecile.
