Doctor Who fanfiction crossovers recs & more

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

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

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

 

Upstairs, Downstairs September 9, 2010

Title: 165 Eaton Place
Author: JJPOR
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 4431
Characters: Gerald Carter, Harriet Derbyshire, Richard Bellamy, Mr Hudson, Mrs Bridges, Edward, Rose, Daisy, Ruby, James Bellamy, Lord Charles Gilmour/ The Master,

An unexpected crossover in which Edwardian Torchwood need to retrieve something from the Bellamy household, who are currently playing host to a guest, who is very familiar to those who know Doctor Who. It’s just marvellous fun, and there’s no real need to know anything at all about the cross (or even Gerald and Harriet, althouh if you haven’t read JJPOR’s other stories about them, you should), other than Lord Charles Gilmour was played by Anthony Ainley.

Title: A Federal Case

Characters: Ninth Doctor, Dana Scully

A note perfect cross for both. More, please!

*

Title: Ask A Policeman
Author: JJPOR
Rating: PG
Word Count: 670
Characters: Romana II, Dana Scully

Some Time Lord impossibility and much amusement.

*

And a drabble and a bit:

Title: First Contact
Author: Joseph Q Publique
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: Drabble (and a half)
Characters: Fourth Doctor, Fox Mulder, Dana Scully

Some alien encounters are bit more unexpected than others.

 

More Red Dwarf June 22, 2009

A couple of Rimmer stories (again from that LJ crossover meme that’s going around lately). Oh, and a drabble.

Title: No Kind of Atmosphere
Author: JJPOR
Rating: PG
Word Count: 610
Characters: Romana I, Arnold Rimmer

Romana encounters Arnold Judas Rimmer. As always, she’s equal to the challenge.

*

Title: We Don’t Need Another Hero
Author: JJPOR
Rating: PG
Word Count: 863
Ninth Doctor, Rose Tyler, Jack Harkness, Ace Rimmer

Oh my, oh my. I’m reduced to incoherent giggles merely thinking about it. If the list of characters leaves you unmoved, then just let me say: spot on and, very, very funny. The Doctor’s reaction is priceless.

Title: Cassandra Truth
Author: john_elliott
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: Drabble
Characters: Tenth Doctor, David Lister, Cat.

Title: The Choir Invisible
Author: JJPOR
Rating: PG
Word Count: 420
Characters: Jack Harkness, Death

What do you know? It’s another Jack and Death fic. It’s definitely Meant To Be. And this is just as fun as the rest.

 

Babylon 5 June 20, 2009

Another show I know nothing about, so bear with me. I find the best solution is to find authors I know are good from their other stories and try their crossovers. All of the below stories very much belong in the I don’t understand, but I like them category, so I present them here (still in bafflement).

*
Title: Brief Encounter
Author: Selena
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 553
Characters: Seventh Doctor, Ambasador Delenn.

The Doctor intervenes in the Earth/Minbari war.

*

Title: Time After Time
Author: Selena
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 1636
Characters: Tenth Doctor, The Master (Simm), Professor Yana, Morden

Again, I don’t know Babylon 5, but this certainly works hauntingly well from a Doctor Who point of view.

*

Title: The God Game
Author: JJPOR
Rating: PG
Word Count: 466
Characters: Seventh Doctor, Ambassador Kosh.

Like I said, I don’t know much about B5, but I do know that what JJPOR writes is usually well worth reading, so…

*

Title: Walkers in Darkness
Author: JJPOR
Rating: PG
Word Count: 700
Characters: Seventh Doctor, Ambassador Delenn.

It certainly does seem that Seven is the natural choice for a B5 crossover.

British sf shows should stick together, don’t you think? Some talented ficcers certainly do…

Last of Your Species Support Group by Amy_Wolf
All Ages
Word Count: 2007
Characters: Tenth Doctor, Martha Jones, Cassandra, Scaroth, Davros, Daleks, Empress of Racnoss, Sutekh, Dave Lister, Arnold Rimmer.

A thoroughly entertaining cross with a twist. Let’s just say that the Doctor’s not popular with the other members of this support group. Plus points, of course, for Rimmer meeting another version of himself (one we’ve encountered previously, but he hasn’t).

*

First Contact by JJPOR
Teen.
Word Count: 2242
Characters: Seventh Doctor, Ace, Holly, Dave Lister, Arnold Rimmer, Cat, Kryten.

Rimmer finally gets to meet an alien and Lister gets to meet another human (albeit one who likes blowing things up a lot). Excellent, fully in keeping with both shows and very funny.

*

Light Years by idontlikegravy
All Ages / Teen (only ish for a line or two. It is Red Dwarf, after all).
Word Count: 5048
Characters: Tenth Doctor, Holly, Arnold Rimmer, David Lister, Kryten, Cat.

I’ve only just now found this and it’s lovely. I think it might even be my favourite. The Doctor’s thrown 3 million light years off course, messing up Lister’s poker night. Which means that Rimmer gets to meet an alien and Holly needs repairing with washing-up liquid. (And I love any good use of Holly.)

Incompatible by Daibhid Ceannaideach
All Ages
Word Count: Double Drabble
Characters: Fourth Doctor, K9, Skutter

K9’s in love with a skutter, but it’ll never work out.

(Posted on alt.drwho.creative).

And if anyone knows which fic it is features Martha getting accidentally transported to Red Dwarf to give medical aid, I’ll add that as well.
