Author: Kesomon

Just a great bit of fun with Seven and Ace being typical Seven and Ace and the SG1 team being bemused.

Title: Night at the Museum
Author: dvs
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 12,530
Characters: Eleventh Doctor, Amy Pond, Rory Williams, Sam Carter, Vala Mal Doran, Cameron Mitchell, Daniel Jackson, Teal’c

This is a nicely characterised straight crossover that yet, true to the spirit of S5 of Doctor Who manages also to be sweet and funny and quirky, with both a spooky museum setting, tea and cake, and a mysterious toaster. What’s not to like?

It’s the true story of James Bond. Or something like it, anyway…

 

Buffy & Angel July 12, 2010

Buffy

Title: Infiltration
Author: Forge
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 12,868 (8 chapters)
Characters: Seventh Doctor, Ace, Faith Lehane, Rupert Giles, Willow Rosenberg, Kennedy, Buffy Summers, Vi, Xander Harris

Dark, and intriguing. WIP, but there’s enough here to make it worth recommending nonetheless. This author is consistently excellent.

Title: Brightening
Author: Kerr Avonson
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 200
Characters: Eighth Doctor, Buffy Summers

Brief vignette of the two in passing. Lovely.

Angel

Title: The Enemy Within
Author: mrtc2003
Rating: PG
Word Count: 1545
Characters: The Master (Ainley), Angel

This is an interesting, dark crossover that brings out the similarities and differences in both characters and works very well in looking at the gap in the Master’s story between Survival and the TV Movie. (There are a couple of basic punctuation slips in the dialogue, but the rest is well-written enough to make it easy to overlook.)

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).

 

Sapphire and Steel May 24, 2010

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.

 

Angel May 15, 2010

Title: Boys (or Down With the Patriarchy)
Author: uktechgirl
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 3392
Characters: Seventh Doctor, Ace, Angel, Wesley Wyndham-Price, Winifred Burkle, Charles Gunn, Harmony, Lorne, Spike. (Set S5 for Angel; hints of both Ace/Fred, and Wesley/Fred).

This is just gorgeous, and I don’t say that lightly. It’s well-written and with everyone in character, some lovely gems of lines, while musing on the nature of Doctors and Companions, Watchers and Slayers, and Boys and Girls. And Angel phones security just to say, “You suck.” If there were more crossovers like this, fandom would be a better place.

Title: Strangers in the Night
Author: Suzanne
Rating: All ages / PG
Word Count: 2755
Characters: Eighth Doctor, Angel, Charley

A chance encounter on a railway station in 1932. A good, thoughtful piece with excellent characterisation all round. And I do like the nod to Brief Encounter, too.
