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.)

 

Firefly / Serenity June 16, 2010

Two more…

***

Title: Serenity
Author: Emery Board
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 666
Characters: Tenth Doctor, Martha Jones, River Tam

The Doctor lands on board someone else’s ship and gets more than he bargained for…

***

Title: The Third Passenger, or: How River Tam Learned the Importance of Not Opening Other People’s Watches
Author: Forge
Rating: PG
Word Count: 5634
Characters: The Master (Jacobi), River Tam, Simon Tam, Mal Reynolds, Kaylee Frye, Zoe Washburne, Jayne Cobb, Inara Serra, Book.

Another beautifully written, dark look at the Master, this time the Yana incarnation. The cross fits perfectly, although the ending renders it AU.

 

Angel March 6, 2010

Title: Choices
Author: Forge
Rating: All Ages / PG
Word Count: 3669
Characters: Seventh Doctor, Illyria

A note first: something odd has happened with the formatting in the first chapter – don’t be put off. This is a great story, note perfect for Illyria and Seven and the elusive quality of Angel as a show.

Title: Winged Shadows
Author: vvj5
Rating: All ages / PG
Word Count: 16,545
Characters: Sixth Doctor, Peri Brown, Angel, Cordelia Chase, Wesley Wyndham-Price, Charles Gunn, Lorne, Lilah Morgan.

There’s a new menace in LA and it’s not the weirdo in the patchwork coat. It’s something shadowy and dangerous. That makes it the business of Angel Investigations, Wolfram and Hart – and a passing Time Lord.

(Another of my own sorry efforts, I’m afraid.)

 

Stargate January 24, 2010

Stargate Atlantis:

Title: Pit Stop
Author: jinxed_wood
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 773
Characters: Fourth Doctor, Romana II, John Sheppard, Rodney McKay, Teyla Emmagan, Elizabeth Weir, Ronon Dex.

The Stargate team encounter Four and Romana. Naturally much bemusement on their part ensues.

***

SG1:

Title: With Friends Like These, Who Needs Goa’uld?
Author: Forge
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 2565
Characters: Daleks, Jack O’Neill, Daniel Jackson, Sam Carter, Teal’c (AU)

The Stargate team make an alliance with the Daleks against the Goa’uld.

And why not? This is pretty much perfect as an atmospheric Christmas fic. All the best to everyone!

*

Title: Christmas Gift
Author: Forge
Rating: PG
Word Count: 915
Characters: Seventh Doctor, The Master (Ainley)

The Master leaves the Doctor a gift. An eerie festive crossover and a reminder that the Master isn’t very nice, after all.

 

Discworld November 23, 2009

Tags: , ,

Title: The Chess Players
Author: Forge
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 2078
Characters: Seventh Doctor, Lord Vetinari

Seven plays Vetinari as chess. Which, as chess goes, is probably the ultimate showdown, were it not merely a ‘friendly’ match. With Pratchett-esque footnotes and all.

 

Buffy November 15, 2009

Title: The Lady of the Night, The Master of the Stars
Author: Forge
Rating: PG
Word Count:
Characters: Drusilla, The Master (Delgado)

Do I seriously need to say more than Drusilla’s narrative ‘voice’ is perfect and she meets the original Master? I feel somehow anything else is unnecessary.

***

Title: Of Blood and Time
Author: jinxed_wood
Rating: PG / All ages
Word Count: 682
Characters: John Smith (Human Nature), Drusilla

Another cross with an excellent Drusilla POV and a more vulnerable, human Doctor who nearly meets his end in 1913 as a result.

***

Title: Moving On
Author: Clarissa
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 569
Characters: Sarah Jane Smith, Rupert Giles

A brief character vignette with an ending that brought a smile to my face. Somehow, I just love the idea of these two together. Hmm… (Interesting idea; both of them might have stories to share about leading teenagers into danger at a later time).
