Hugely enjoyable and well written short crossover, even for someone like me who’s never read the books.

Title: Perchance
Author: a_grey_eyed_girl
Rating: All ages

Again, I’m not familiar with Sandman, but this reads as well done and interesting (love the ending with Donna.)


Title: [the other side of the sky]

Rating: All ages
Word Count: 2464
Characters: Jack Harkness, various of the Endless

As I say, I’m not familiar with the crossover, but this is beautifully done and Jack is the perfect subject for such a story.

This is great! It’s too short to say more; go read it and grin!


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.


Noddy / Enid Blyton November 26, 2010

Title: There’s No Noddy
Author: Derek Metaltron
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 1595
Characters: Tenth Doctor, Donna Noble, Second Doctor, Zoe Heriot, Noddy, Big Ears, PC Plod

This makes great use of cutting between The Unicorn and the Wasp to The Mind Robber to make one of the unlikeliest crossovers ever occur. It’s very entertaining.


Indiana Jones October 21, 2010

Title: Five Times Indy or Marion Met the Doctor and One Time They Met Him Together
Author: ljs
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 2136
Characters: First Doctor, Second Doctor, Fourth Doctor, Fifth Doctor, Tegan Jovanka, Tenth Doctor, Donna Noble, Indiana Jones, Marion Ravenwood, Harold Oxley.

Fun five-times fic in which Indy meets the Doctor(s) several times over, usually to his annoyance.


Red Dwarf September 24, 2010

Title: An Infinite Number of Roads to Dallas
Author: EllieLaBelle
Rating: PG
Word Count: 1937
Characters: Ninth Doctor, Rose Tyler, Dave Lister, Arnold Rimmer, Cat, Kryten

The Doctor was said to be at Dallas in 1963. So were quite a number of other time travellers, including a certain gang who were only in search of a decent curry. This is brilliant, from the Hitch-Hiker-esque intro on time travel, the nods to other time travellers who were also hanging around, the Doctor’s reaction to the Dwarfers’ current plan and the ending. Another example of a fanfic author making excellent use of a throwaway line from an episode.


Title: Smokin’ Kippers
Author: JJPOR
Rating: PG / Teen
Word Count: 6156
Characters: Tenth Doctor, Donna Noble, Ace Rimmer

It has Ten, Donna and Ace Rimmer in it. It’s brilliant. Go read.


Title: Laundry Mad
Author: vvj5
Rating: All ages
Word Count: Drabble
Characters: Third Doctor, Kryten

There’s only one thing Kryten wants from the Doctor.
