Star Trek June 28, 2009

Finally, I boldly go into the realms of the really obvious…

The Original Series / 2009 Reboot
(In my ignorance it’s a bit hard to tell which is which in some cases…)

Title: Section 3-52
Author: atraphoenix
Rating: PG
Word Count: 1529
Characters: Zoe Herriot, James T Kirk, Spock.

I think the author’s sumnmary says it all: Zoe couldn’t continue to wander around the bridge in that catsuit. It was Kirk’s job – his duty, even – to get her out of it.


These are both definitely 2009:

Title: Oh, I Beg Your Pardon, We Appear to be in the Wrong Universe
Author: mithrel
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 1786
Characters: Tenth Doctor, Martha Jones, Spock


Title: A Delicate Destiny
Author: jinxed_wood
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 870
Characters: Tenth Doctor, Spock

I may not be an expert on Star Trek, but I can recognise well-written fic with some good characterisation and a spot of humour here and there and this is certainly one of those.


Title: Threads in the Pattern
Author: Azar
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 637
Characters: Jack Harkness, Malcolm Reed, Jonathan Archer, Travis Mayweather, Trip, T’Pol and Phlox

On relationships.


And a drabble, mainly because it also features Zoe:

Title: A Fair Cop

Rating: All Ages
Word Count: Drabble
Characters: Zoe Herriot, Second Doctor, Jamie McCrimmon, Jonathan Archer, Phlox, Malcolm Reed


Wallace & Gromit June 25, 2009

Title: A Grand Day Out
Author: Persiflage
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 653
Characters: Tenth Doctor, Martha Jones, Wallace, Gromit.

If I really need to say more than Look! Someone did a DW crossover with Wallace and Gromit, then this is probably not for you. I’m still just gleeful that such a lovely bit of nonsense exists at all.


Nero Wolfe books – Rex Stout June 22, 2009

Title: “The Orchid Thief”
Author: leviathan
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 15292
Characters: Nero Wolfe, Archie Goodwin, Tenth Doctor, Martha Jones, Third Doctor, Jo Grant, The Master (Delgado).

I have no idea about this cross, but the story impresses from all angles. It’s well written, it’s fun, everyone is in character and I particularly love the latter part with the 70s DW trio – the description of Jo is spot on.


More Red Dwarf

A couple of Rimmer stories (again from that LJ crossover meme that’s going around lately). Oh, and a drabble.

Title: No Kind of Atmosphere
Author: JJPOR
Rating: PG
Word Count: 610
Characters: Romana I, Arnold Rimmer

Romana encounters Arnold Judas Rimmer. As always, she’s equal to the challenge.


Title: We Don’t Need Another Hero
Author: JJPOR
Rating: PG
Word Count: 863
Ninth Doctor, Rose Tyler, Jack Harkness, Ace Rimmer

Oh my, oh my. I’m reduced to incoherent giggles merely thinking about it. If the list of characters leaves you unmoved, then just let me say: spot on and, very, very funny. The Doctor’s reaction is priceless.


Title: Cassandra Truth
Author: john_elliott
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: Drabble
Characters: Tenth Doctor, David Lister, Cat.


James Bond June 21, 2009

Title: “Shocking!”
Author: The Secretive Bus
Rating: PG
Word Count: 716
Characters: Third Doctor, James Bond (Connery), UNIT

Silly in all the right ways (and it explains a lot). Oh, dear…


Hitch-Hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy

Not all by any means, but three to start with:


Title: Seeking Lethe
Author: Kerr Avonson
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 1166
Characters: Ninth Doctor, Zaphod Beeblebrox

This is a spot-on crossover. It’s funny and angsty in all the right ways. And has a Guide entry for the Time Lords. What more can you ask for?


Title: Implausible
Author: mithrel
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 2795
Characters: Fifth Doctor, Tegan Jovanka, Nyssa, Turlough, Arthur Dent, Ford Prefect, Trillian, Zaphod Beeblebrox, Marvin

The crews of both improbable crafts collide with an awful lot of fun, and plenty of the right sort of confusion.


Title: Need a lift?
Author: Tyler Dion
Rating: PG
Word Count: Drabble
Characters: Seventh Doctor, Ford Prefect


Discworld Again

Title: The Choir Invisible
Author: JJPOR
Rating: PG
Word Count: 420
Characters: Jack Harkness, Death

What do you know? It’s another Jack and Death fic. It’s definitely Meant To Be. And this is just as fun as the rest.
