Dalziel & Pascoe / Reginald Hill July 20, 2011

Title: Untitled
Author: tree_and_leaf
Rating: PG
Word Count: 300
Characters: Eleventh Doctor, Amy Pond, Andrew Dalziel

I’m not especially familiar with the novels or TV version, but I didn’t have to be to enjoy a very entertaining ficlet. Somehow there’s always something about a TV detective finding he’s got the Doctor to contend with that never grows old…


Stargate (SG1) June 17, 2011

Title: A Jaffa, an archaeoogist and two Air Force officers walk into a library
Author: aces
Rating: All ages.
Word Count: 1289
Characters: Eleventh Doctor, Amy Pond, Rory Williams, Daniel Jackson, Jack O’Neill, Teal’c, Sam Carter

A lovely bit of fun in which the two teams meet in a library, and there is world-threatening danger and the Doctor and Daniel bonding over bow ties, books and the promise of a visit to yet another library.


Title: T is for Time (Non-Encounters of the Deeply Weird Kind)
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 3223
Characters: Fourth Doctor, Leela, Eighth Doctor, Second Doctor, Jamie McCrimmon, Zoe Heriot, Sixth Doctor, Peri Brown, Third Doctor, Fifth Doctor, Tenth Doctor, Martha Jones, Seventh Doctor, Ninth Doctor, First Doctor, Ian Chesterton, Barbara Wright, Eleventh Doctor, Daniel Jackson, Sam Carter, Jack O’Neill, Teal’c, Vala Mal Doran.

Highly entertaining multi-era fic in which the team encounter all of the Doctors without ever realising it’s the same person.


Title: gate Travel
Author: Apple Cameron
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 127
Characters: The Doctor, his companion (any era you choose), the Star Gate

The Doctor, not overly impressed by the Gate.

Title: Ice and Fire
Author: Rivendellrose
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 1561
Characters: Ninth Doctor, Spock

Excellent brief crossover with Star Trek XI. Two survivors exchange stories.


Title: If You Don’t Like the Weather, Just Wait Five Minutes
Author: infiniteviking
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 756
Characters: Amy Pond, Leonard McCoy

Gorgeously written conversational crossover (and, as far as I can see, it’s genuinely TOS in this case, which is a bonus). Amy Pond walks into a bar and meets another doctor…


Stargate SG1 March 15, 2011

Title: Crackaboom
Author: Kesomon
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 485
Characters: Seventh Doctor, Ace, Cameron Mitchell, Vala Mal Doran, Sam Carter

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?


Bujold – Vorkosigan series December 2, 2010

Title: Electric Blue
Author: Philomytha
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 8223
Characters: Eleventh Doctor, Amy Pond, Rory Williams, Miles Vorkosigan, Ivan Vorpatril, Emperor Gregor the Great, Illyan, River Song

It’s hard to judge quite a detailed crossover when I know nothing about it, but this was also very accessible, with a nicely characterised TARDIS team (little details like Rory’s choice to stand back, so he’d be available to use his nursing skills to pick up the pieces if / when things when wrong, Eleven’s quirkiness, and Amy’s forthrightness are all well-used here), and if the crossover characters are as well done, then definitely one for fans to catch.


The Young Rebels November 8, 2010

Title: A Polymorphic Counterfeit
Author: Marla F Fair
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 59842
Characters: Eleventh Doctor, Amy Pond, River Song

This is really well written, long, plotty, with good characterisation and perfectly accessible to those (like me) who don’t have a clue about the crossover.


Life on Mars / Ashes to Ashes May 27, 2010

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.)
