Torchwood gets an unexpected visitor.
Discworld Again June 21, 2009
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.
Sherlock Holmes June 7, 2009
Jack in his travels through time the slow way encounters Sherlock Holmes in the 1890s. Nice.
Sherlock Holmes encounters the First Doctor in the course of his investigations. And, of course, logic dictates Sherlock’s willingness to believe in the improbable. (And aren’t I lucky? This one was written for me!)
I should also mention that, while not exactly crossovers, John Elliott has also written a fair few Sherlock Holmes Storytime tales for This Time Round. These feature various narrators (from Dr Watson himself to the newest Master) retelling the stories with DW characters in the roles. It is indeed as crazy as it sounds, but also a huge amount of fun.
The Coming of the Hound (The Hound of the Baskervilles).
The Speckled Band
The Three Garridebs
The Bruce Partington Plans
The Adventure of Charles Augustus Milverton
The Adventure of the Engineer’s Thumb
The Adventure of the Musgrave Ritual
Angel & Buffy Again May 3, 2009
Two more good stories I found, one for each show:
The Doctor arrives in LA, 1997 and sense that someone’s been playing around with timelines. It’s a neat story based around Dawn’s insertion into Buffy’s timeline, which is an idea that makes huge sense for a Doctor Who crossover to deal with.
Spike finds Cardiff under Harmony’s desk. It’s a fun fic (look at the character list) with a dark edge, because Torchwood are five years in the future and Angel’s team don’t seem to exist any more.
More Discworld April 13, 2009
Death and the Definitely-Not-A-Maiden by Anonymous.
Word Count: 3678
Characters: Jack Harkness, Death, Susan Sto-Helit, Ianto Jones
More fun with Death and Jack. It’s beginning to look as if they’re made for one another… 😉
Diana Wynne Jones April 8, 2009
If I say there should be much more of these, will somebody write me some?
Howl’s Moving Castle
As TigerKat points out, Torchwood is based in Cardiff and investigates odd activity. Howl is from Cardiff and definitely counts as odd. And so two of the handsomest and vainest characters in sf/fantasy meet up, Owen becomes a frog and Sophie and Tosh are sensible. There’s only one complaint: please, please write the rest of the week…
The Tough Guide to Fantasyland
Naked Without A Sword by vvj5 (yes, me again. Sorry.)
All Ages / PG
Word Count: 300 (Three drabbles)
Characters: Seventh Doctor, Ace, Eighth Doctor, Charlotte Pollard, Fifth Doctor, Tegan Jovanka, Turlough.
I love DWJ’s The Tough Guide to Fantasyland (which should be called the Cure for Cliched Fantasy really). In these drabbles, three Doctors take the Tour and attempt to safely purchase a sword.
Discworld April 5, 2009
I’m all in awe of people who’ll risk Pratchett crossovers and even more so if they come off really well.
If the title doesn’t make you want to go and read it, there’s nothing I can say. (Except that it does indeed do as it promises and it all ends exactly as you would expect.)
Jack’s inability to die is holding up the end of the universe. He and Death try to come to a solution. It works so well (particularly the game-play, which includes Monopoly, Twister and Cluedo) and the resolution is excellent. Very Death and typical Jack.
Another This Time Round story, but a proper story, too, of a Pratchett plot (from Reaper Man invading Nameless. Jamie, Victoria, Zoe, Samantha Briggs, Gia Kelly and Liz Shaw team up to combat the threat and get more than they bargained for.
