Title: Second Star to the Right
Author: whispersecho
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 2912
Characters: Eighth Doctor, Wendy Darling.

A lovely crossover piece, very sweet and in character for both. There are one or two typos that could use fixing, but other than that it’s note-perfect.

Rating: All ages
Word Count: 916
Characters: Eighth Doctor, Sam Jones

I don’t know enough about the crossover to say much, except this was very amusing. (So not much to the dark side of that series, then. But very amusing.)

Title: The Hat
Author: Apple Cameron
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 145
Characters: Eighth Doctor, Sam Jones

Just very sweet, silly and short. I say no more.



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.


The X-Files April 29, 2010

Two great linked stories by the same author. (Although reading both is not a necessity to understand either.)


Title: The Truth Is Out There, But Who Knows
Author: Author: Adrian Tullberg
Rating: All Ages
Word Count:
Characters: Eighth Doctor, Fox Mulder, Dana Scully

A lovely, solid cross with excellent characterisation around. Why are there not more like this?


Title: How The Cancer Man Survived
Author: Adrian Tullberg
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 1793
Characters: Seventh Doctor, Ace, Cancer Man / Cigarette Smoking man

Sequel to The Truth Is Out There, But Who Knows but stands alone.


Supernatural November 15, 2009

Title: Sorry To Bother You
Author: jinxed_wood
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 576
Characters: Fourth Doctor, Romana II, Dean Winchester, Sam Winchester

Again, I’ve not watched the crossover show, but as much fun as this author’s other stories, indeed.


Title: The Man in the Box
Author: Mhalachi
Rating: All ages
Word Count:
Characters: Seventh Doctor, Eighth Doctor, Ninth Doctor, Tenth Doctor, Martha Jones, Dean Winchester.

Again, a well-written little cross. (With a touch of Martha/Dean, for those who like that sort of thing, or need warning against it).

Title: Making Time (Lords)
Author: Calapine
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 1477
Characters: Withnail/Shalka!doc, Marwood/Eighth Doctor

Don’t worry about having seen the film; as long as you know who the leads are, you’ll be grinning as widely as me. Eight to (Shalka) Nine: “Right, because we really should have considered who’d be the more successful poverty-stricken sixties actor before we did this?”
