Doctor Who fanfiction crossovers recs & more

Nine / Firefly November 20, 2010

No less than three Nine-era crossovers with Firefly. Enjoy.


Title: Out of Joint
Author: HonorH
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 44597
Characters: Ninth Doctor, Rose Tyler, Jack Harkness, Mal Reynolds, River Tam, Inara Serra, Book, Simon Tam, Jayne Cobb, Kaylee Frye

I haven’t read this yet (not wanting to be any more spoiled for Firefly, which I’ve not yet seen) but this author writes excellent crossovers, and this long fic doesn’t look as if it’s any exception.


Title: Cover Stories
Author: ChristinaK
Rating: Teen (For Jack, and several cases of accidental nudity, and Jack)
Word Count: 3266
Characters: Jack Harkness, Ninth Doctor, Rose Tyler, Mal Reynolds, Inara Serra, River Tam, Zoe Washburne, Simon Tam, Kaylee Frye

There’s a party with a defabricator and two sets of people trying to walk off with a priceless artefact. This is very entertaining and excellently done. As above, Teen warning for Jack and several cases of nudity (including Jack).


Title: Respite (The Unquiet Dead)
Author: kaydee falls
Rating: All ages / PG
Word Count: 1997
Characters: Ninth Doctor, Rose Tyler, Jack Harkness, River Tam

Lovely, well-written, thoughtful crossover with excellent use of River to bring an enlightening perspective to the TARDIS team.


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.


Firefly/Serenity February 8, 2010

Title: Ordinary Day
Author: Doctor Tam
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 2073
Characters: Fourth Doctor, Romana I, Adric, Mal Reynolds, Zoe Washburne, Kaylee Frye, Jayne Cobb, River Tam, Simon Tam

It’s just another day for both crews. (You know, I don’t think I’ve found a bad cross for this fandom yet.) Mal’s got mystery stowaways and the TARDIS crew are trying to escape.


Title: Drowning His Sorrows
Author: HonorH

Characters: Jack Harkness, Wash

Captain Jack dishes out romantic advice.


Firefly / Serenity December 5, 2009

Title: A Modest Proposal

Captain Jack makes Mal an offer he can’t refuse.


Title: More Trouble Than It’s Worth
Author: Settiai
Rating: All ages / PG
Word Count: 1120

Jack causes trouble, as Jack does. This is very entertaining…


Firefly / Serenity July 20, 2009

I haven’t yet got to watch either the series or the film, but here’s some stories that appealed anyway:


Title: Winter Where You Are
Author: st_aurafina
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 1860

This is beautiful, with perfect characterisation and it really doesn’t matter if you don’t know the crossover.
