Title: Jack Harkness, the Infinitely Prolongued
Author: travels_in_time
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 547
Characters: Jack Harkness, Owen Harper, Toshiko Sato, Gwen Cooper, Ianto Jones, Wowbagger the Infinitely Prolongued

This is brilliantly in character for both shows, very funny, and very Jack. What else could you ask for in a fic this short?


Title: the people you meet (the things are also people)
Author: Signifcant Owl
Rating: All ages
Word Count:
Characters: Ninth Doctor, Rose Tyler, Arthur Dent, Rose Tyler, Zaphod Beeblebrox, Trillian

Arthur’s quest for tea leads him to the alien who’s just bought up the entire contents of the shop they were in, and to Rose Tyler, and trouble. Lovely, fun cross, the narrator’s voice very much in-keeping for both worlds.

And: “Get ready, Rose, for the most excruciatingly mind-numbingly dull bit of planet-saving you’ll ever be involved in.”
“What, why? What’re we going to do?”
“How are you at filling in forms?”

Title: The Hitchhiker’s Guide to Surviving a Dalek Invasion
Author: atraphoenix
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 1038
Characters: Alan Jackson, Maria Jackson, Arthur Dent, Ford Prefect, Trillian, Marvin, Zaphod Beeblebrox

This is short and funny, and note-perfect, which for a Hitchhiker cross is surely recommendation enough. In which the invasion of Earth is foiled in typical random manner, and there are lots of lovely, amusing throwaway snippets, and did I say it was voice-perfect?


Title: The Recitation of the Daleks
Author: Jessa L’Rynn
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 2559
Characters: Fourth Doctor, Arthur Dent, K9 Daleks

Another fun cross, with particular credit going to the treatment of Arthur’s search for tea (and this incarnation’s ability to stash cups in his pocket) and Arthur giving the Doctor and K9 the answer to the universe.

Title:Things That Never Were
Author: Kerr Avonson
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 1616
Characters: Eighth Doctor, Arthur Dent, Ford Prefect

According to the Guide, Daleks don’t exist. This doesn’t mean they can’t kill you. Lovely!


Hitch-Hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy June 21, 2009

Not all by any means, but three to start with:


Title: Seeking Lethe
Author: Kerr Avonson
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 1166
Characters: Ninth Doctor, Zaphod Beeblebrox

This is a spot-on crossover. It’s funny and angsty in all the right ways. And has a Guide entry for the Time Lords. What more can you ask for?


Title: Implausible
Author: mithrel
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 2795
Characters: Fifth Doctor, Tegan Jovanka, Nyssa, Turlough, Arthur Dent, Ford Prefect, Trillian, Zaphod Beeblebrox, Marvin

The crews of both improbable crafts collide with an awful lot of fun, and plenty of the right sort of confusion.


Title: Need a lift?
Author: Tyler Dion
Rating: PG
Word Count: Drabble
Characters: Seventh Doctor, Ford Prefect
