Short ficlet in tribute to both T P McKenna and Nicholas Courtney:

Title: An Unexpected Ally
Author: kalypso_v
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 400
Characters: Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart, President Sarkoff

On Lindor, all hope seems to be lost, but Sarkoff may be about to receive assistance from the most unlikely source imaginable. This is lovely (and, of course, Blake and the Doctor are behind it all), but written in tribute to both T P McKenna and Nicholas Courtney and their respective characters, this can’t but leave the reader with a smile.

 

Harry Potter February 7, 2011

Title: Harry Potter and the Lord of Time
Author: themonkeycabal
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 9888
Characters: Ninth Doctor, Rose Tyler, Harry Potter, Albus Dumbledore, Hermione Granger, Ron Weasley, Elizabeth Weir, Rodney McKay, John Sheppard

As I’ve mentioned, I’m wary of crossovers with fantasy, but for those who like them, this one is well characterised, and fits into the three worlds well (being also a crossover with Stargate: Atlantis).

Title: A Wand Opportunity
Author: Janna Silver Hawkins
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 805
Characters: Ninth Doctor, Rose Tyler, Harry Potter, Tom Riddle, Ginny Weasley

Humorous, tongue-in-cheek ficlet, with a nice explaining away of wands in the DW-verse as a bonus.

 

The Good Life

Title: Curtain Twitcher
Author: carawj
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 375
Characters: Fourth Doctor, Sarah Jane Smith, Margo Leadbetter, Jerry Leadbetter

Great little ficlet with a twist. (Where’s the next part, please?)

 

Carry On Constable

Title: Cops and Robbers
Author: vvj5
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 1942
Characters: Barbara Wright, First Doctor, Ian Chesterton, Susan Foreman, Charlie Constable.

In the summer of 1963, Barbara and the Doctor almost cross paths, along with an alien thief and an unlikely policeman. (Sorry. Another by me, this time borrowing Kenneth Connor’s character from Carry On Constable.)

 

Lord of the Rings / J R R Tolkien February 5, 2011

Title: Through the rain curtain
Author: Eledhwen
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 13,164
Characters: Ninth Doctor, Tenth Doctor, Donna Noble, Ronald Reuel Tolkien, Faramir, Aragorn, Gimli, Frodo, Gandalf, Legolas.

I’m torn between putting this in my historical recs rather than here, as it’s perhaps more that than a crossover, but anyway, one of those fics where the author gets all his ideas from a visit to a planet that I don’t usually like, but which is done with a great deal of love for the author in question – Eledhwen clearly knows Tolkien’s history, and uses it well, including the links between Faramir and Tolkien himself. Let’s just say it’s something a bit different, and well worth a read.

 

Stargate Atlantis February 2, 2011

Title: Time and Man
Author: mari4212
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 4192
Characters: Ninth Doctor, Rose Tyler, Rodney Mckay

A short, thoughtful crossover fic.

***

Title: Park Life
Author: paranoidangel
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 1026
Characters: Harry Sullivan, Jeannie Miller

Not knowing the crossover (and maybe the BF Sarah Jane audios), I don’t get the details, but this is rather a lovely accidental encounter between the two characters and needs little explanation, anyway.

Author: vvj5
