Title: Charlie’s Bar
Author: Wiccagirl24
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 1493
Characters: Seventh Doctor, Elwood P. Dowd, Harvey

Crossover with a 1950 film starring James Stewart, but you don’t really have to know that. This is really sweet and fun, and again, very Seven and Ace. There are one or two minor typos (but very minor).

 

Merlin

Title: Donna Noble, King of Camelot
Author: Netgirl_y2k
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 1531
Characters: Donna Noble, Tenth Doctor, Uther Pendragon, Arthur Pendragon, Merlin, Gwen, Morgana, Gaius.

This is wonderfully funny, and offers an explanation for Merlin’s unlikely existence. Technically, I should warn for AU, but I think that’s fairly obvious from the title. And Donna gets to have fun and be awesome – and eventually lets the Doctor out of his dungeon…

I don’t know enough about the crossover to say much, except this was very amusing. (So not much to the dark side of that series, then. But very amusing.)

 

Life on Mars / Ashes to Ashes

Please note these first two are potentially spoiler-ish for the Ashes to Ashes finale.

Title: Existing. Or Not
Author: Pitry
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 456
Characters: Owen Harper, Amy Pond, Nelson

Maybe a chance encounter down the pub? (I don’t understand entirely, but I like it.)

Title: Metaphysics
Author: Pitry
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 508
Characters: Rose Tyler, Nelson

There’s another person walking into a bar with an existential issue.

Title: There Is No Modern Romance
Author: intrikate88
Rating: PG
Word Count: 2263
Characters: Donna Noble, Gene Hunt, Sam Tyler, Alex Drake, Ray Carling

I’m really sceptical about LoM/A2A crosses, just because we still don’t know the nature of the reality in those two shows. Also, especially when it’s for a pairing. And even so, this won me over, because Donna/Gene is quite a thought (even if mostly scary) and I’m completely sucked in if someone can write Gene this well. (I can’t to save my life.)

There is a sequel here: Spectacular Views.

(And, yes, I wrote my review before I’d seen the end of Ashes to Ashes.)

Title: The Glade
Author: Wiccagirl24
Rating: All ages / PG
Word Count: 5807
Characters: Seventh Doctor, Ace, Steel, Sapphire

An eerie short story that makes the crossover here perfectly natural and moving and in keeping with both shows. It’s a lovely piece of work and perfectly readable for someone who, like me, knows almost nothing about Sapphire and Steel. In fact, it works so well, I now want to find more of that show’s fanfic, if it’s like this.

 

Children’s TV: Rainbow

Title: Ranbow Drabble

Rating: All ages
Word Count: Drabble
Characters: Fourth Doctor, Sarah Jane Smith, Harry Sullivan, Jeffrey, Bungle, George, Zippy

Erm. Yes. I am ashamed of myself. Sorry.

Title: The Hat

Word Count: 145

Just very sweet, silly and short. I say no more.
