Title: Qui-Gon Jinn, Jedi Knight, to The Doctor
Author: Iferion
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 158
Characters: Gui-Gon Jinn, Fifth Doctor, Nyssa

A postcard of thanks from a Jedi Knight to the Doctor. (I was particularly amused at the reference to Nyssa, which seems very Season 20 to me…)

 

All Creatures Great and Small February 13, 2010

Title: All Creatures Great and Small
Author: Tim
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 310
Characters: Fifth Doctor, Tegan Jovanka, Nyssa, James Herriot, Siegfried Farnon.

Yet another amusing case of mistaken identity in Darrowby. Slight, but certainly amusing. (Although the one with the Myrka is still my favourite).

Title: Bigger on the Inside
Author: tangerine
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 130
Characters: Fifth Doctor, Nyssa

Barely more than a drabble, short but sweet (and clever) definitely sums this one up.

 

All Creatures Great And Small December 8, 2009

Title: Three Men and A Myrka
Author: Gary Merchant
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 1085
Characters: Fifth Doctor, Siegfried Farnon, James Herriot, Tegan Jovanka

An unexpected AU crossover solution to the Myrka problem. If this doesn’t make you grin, few things will.

Title: Saving the day again
Author: Grayvorn
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 438
Characters: Fifth Doctor, Tegan Jovanka, Nyssa, Adric, Tristan Farnon

Another humorous All Creatures cross. (To nitpick, there are a few typos in here, but the punchline more than makes up for them.)

 

Stargate (SG1) November 25, 2009

Title: Never A Dull Moment
Author: AstroGirl
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 2085
Characters: Romana II, Daniel Jackson, Fourth Doctor, Jack O’Neill

I don’t watch Stargate and I just loved this. It’s sweet and funny with lots of cliches of the shows being exploited, Romana being both terribly clever and enjoyable company and the Doctor and O’Neill run around in amusing ways while hairy aliens attack and things blow up. What more could anyone ask for?

Title: A Dubious Ally
Author: Kerr Avonson
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 2333
Characters: Fifth Doctor, Jack O’Neill, Nyssa

Okay, are there any bad, incomprehensible Stargate crosses? This is great with the Doctor getting tangled in Jack’s world and it being pretty much business as usual for the Time Lord. With a very entertainig ending. Lovely! (There’s a double drabble of a sequel here, too.)

 

Harry Potter November 14, 2009

And this time, you’ll be glad to hear, I found more than a drabble…

Title: Tossing His Jelly babies
Author: Indefatigable
Rating: All ages
Word Count: Drabble
Characters: Fourth Doctor, Romana II

The Fourth Doctor makes an error in Jelly Baby purchasing…

***

Title: Uneven Steps
Author: Settiai
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 5098
Characters: Fifth Doctor, Severus Snape, Nyssa, Peri Brown, Erinem, Tegan Jovanka, Turlough.

I’m rather wary of DW crossed with fantasy, but again, this author writes such excellent fics, how could this go wrong? Severus Snape has encountered the Doctor in all sorts of times and places. A well-written, haunting piece.

Title: The Prisoner
Author: SilvaGirl
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 3138
Characters: Fourth Doctor, Regulus Black, Kreacher

Maybe my wariness is beginning to disapparate, but I like this. I like the excellent Four characterisation and there’s a DW logical reason for the existence of wizards on Earth. (Even if it doesn’t account for Ten reading the books, but Four doesn’t know that yet!) And it’s not an obvious character crossover, either.

 

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
