Title: Doctor Merlin
Author: Emery Board
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 2284
Characters: The Master (Ainley), Harry Dresden, Seventh Doctor, Ace

I don’t know the cross, but intriguing, sinister and fun by turns.

Two great linked stories by the same author. (Although reading both is not a necessity to understand either.)


Title: The Truth Is Out There, But Who Knows
Author: Author: Adrian Tullberg
Rating: All Ages
Word Count:
Characters: Eighth Doctor, Fox Mulder, Dana Scully

A lovely, solid cross with excellent characterisation around. Why are there not more like this?


Title: How The Cancer Man Survived
Author: Adrian Tullberg
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 1793
Characters: Seventh Doctor, Ace, Cancer Man / Cigarette Smoking man

Sequel to The Truth Is Out There, But Who Knows but stands alone.


Press Gang

Okay, so two of these are drabbles, and three of them are by me, but here goes, because there should be more Press Gang in the world…


Title: Hunting Wabbits
Author: hhertzof
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 1552
Characters: Sarah Jane Smith, Sarah Jackson, Spike Thomson, Julie Craig, Lynda Day, Colin Mathews

Sarah Jane investigates mysterious accounts concerning a giant pink rabbit in Norbridge – and the centre of the disturbance seems to be located at the Junior Gazette offices. It’s an amusing, tongue-in-cheek fic. You can never have too much of Colin dressed as a pink rabbit. Probably.


Title: Confessions and Crocodiles
Author: vvj5
Rating: All ages / PG
Word Count: 2143
Characters: Tenth Doctor, Lynda Day

Either the Doctor or Lynda is dreaming, or they’re both in hell, or something like it.

Yet another of my efforts (as are the two following drabbles). Please note: MAJOR spoilers for Press Gang’s finale episode, also the concluding two-parter for S1.


Two Drabbles:

Title: Nothing Unusual
Author: lost_spook
Rating: All ages
Word Count: Drabble
Characters: Fifth Doctor, Lynda Day, Kenny Phillips, Colin Mathews

Lynda has no patience with eccentric strangers in the newsroom. Kenny has.


Title: Just Like Home
Author: lost_spook
Rating: All ages
Word Count: Drabble
Characters: Tegan Jovanka, Kenny Phillips

Tegan has a new employee who isn’t scared of her. It’s strange.


Blake’s 7 April 20, 2010

Title: Discovery
Author: wolfma
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 578
Characters: Kerr Avon, Tenth Doctor

Short and sweet, but entirely in character for both. (Maybe a little more of a B7/Dw crossover than a DW/B7, but Ten is so very Ten at the end…)


Title: It’s All Glamour and Guns in Outer Space
Author: vvj5
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 3671
Characters: Fourth Doctor, Romana I, K9, Jenna Stannis, Servalan, Vila Restal, Roj Blake, Kerr Avon

A bit of nonsense I should have been ashamed of, but am still posting here: Blake’s blowing up the wrong target, the Doctor’s on the wrong planet, but the important thing is that Romana, Jenna and Servalan are having fun in a futuristic fashion boutique.


Ramona – Beverly Cleary April 15, 2010

Title: Ramona and the Blue Box
Author: Primsong
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 8837
Characters: Fourth Doctor, Romana II, K9, Ramona Quimby

A crossover from Primsong is a rare and beautiful thing and this is a joy from start to finish. No aliens, or end of the world threats, but a lot of fun and some nice juxtaposition of the two worlds that collide here. I think I may, once have read one of the Ramona books, but I can still recommend this engaging fic wholeheartedly.


Reality TV: Queer Eye for the Straight Guy April 14, 2010

Title: The Stylist
Author: Adrian Tullberg
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 543
Characters: Ninth Doctor

Erm – very entertaining. What more can I say? (And I had to use the power of the net to find out what on earth the cross even was.)
