Indiana Jones October 21, 2010

Title: Five Times Indy or Marion Met the Doctor and One Time They Met Him Together
Author: ljs
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 2136
Characters: First Doctor, Second Doctor, Fourth Doctor, Fifth Doctor, Tegan Jovanka, Tenth Doctor, Donna Noble, Indiana Jones, Marion Ravenwood, Harold Oxley.

Fun five-times fic in which Indy meets the Doctor(s) several times over, usually to his annoyance.

 

Press Gang April 29, 2010

Okay, so two of these are drabbles, and three of them are by me, but here goes, because there should be more Press Gang in the world…

***

Title: Hunting Wabbits
Author: hhertzof
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 1552
Characters: Sarah Jane Smith, Sarah Jackson, Spike Thomson, Julie Craig, Lynda Day, Colin Mathews

Sarah Jane investigates mysterious accounts concerning a giant pink rabbit in Norbridge – and the centre of the disturbance seems to be located at the Junior Gazette offices. It’s an amusing, tongue-in-cheek fic. You can never have too much of Colin dressed as a pink rabbit. Probably.

Title: Confessions and Crocodiles
Author: vvj5
Rating: All ages / PG
Word Count: 2143
Characters: Tenth Doctor, Lynda Day

Either the Doctor or Lynda is dreaming, or they’re both in hell, or something like it.

Yet another of my efforts (as are the two following drabbles). Please note: MAJOR spoilers for Press Gang’s finale episode, also the concluding two-parter for S1.

Two Drabbles:

Title: Nothing Unusual
Author: lost_spook
Rating: All ages
Word Count: Drabble
Characters: Fifth Doctor, Lynda Day, Kenny Phillips, Colin Mathews

Lynda has no patience with eccentric strangers in the newsroom. Kenny has.

***

Title: Just Like Home
Author: lost_spook
Rating: All ages
Word Count: Drabble
Characters: Tegan Jovanka, Kenny Phillips

Tegan has a new employee who isn’t scared of her. It’s strange.

 

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).

 

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.)

 

The Tomorrow People December 4, 2009

Title: Break Out
Author: Elic
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 1618
Characters: Fourth Doctor, John

Again, not one where I’m familiar with the show in question, but this is an intriguing story.

***

Title: Poisoning the Well
Author: tptigger
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 7579
Characters: Fifth Doctor, Tegan Jovanka, Turlough, Adam Newman, Megabyte Damon, Jade, General Bill Damon, Ami Jackson

And another. (1990s version).

 

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.

 

Blake’s 7 August 31, 2009

I’ve just finished watching Blake’s 7 for the first time – now I can go find fic.

Title: Box of Tricks
Author: AstroGirl
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 3083
Characters: Vila Restal, Fourth Doctor

In which Vila encounters a strange blue box (in the middle of a quarry) and, naturally, has to try and open it. What else would he do? A fun AU with a well-written Fourth Doctor and a note-perfect Vila voice. No spoilers for either series, and I’d imagine this would make a fun introduction to Vila, even if you’re unfamiliar with him.

*

Title: Alternative Escape
Author: Kerr Avonson
Rating: All Ages / Teen
Word Count: 13,929
Characters: Fifth Doctor, Tegan Jovanka, The Master, Turlough, Kerr Avonson, Vila Restal, The Mara

This is very AU in many ways (especially for the Blake’s 7 characters, but this is from another author’s premise, not Kerr Avonson’s, so don’t be put off). Follows on from the last episode, so spoilers if you haven’t got that far, but has really good use of Tegan, Vila and Avon in particular and very interesting reflections on the nature of Vila and Avon’s friendship.

*

Title: Line of Confluence
Author: Jinxed_Wood
Rating: All Ages / Teen
Word Count:
Characters: Jack Harkness, Gwen Cooper, Ianto Jones, Martha Jones, The Master, Kerr Avon, Roj Blake, Vila Restal, Cally, Jenna Stannis, Servalan.

(Not yet completed).
S2 Crossover with Torchwood in which a plot of the Master lands everyone with an Avon/Jack bodyswap incident and the two teams in both timelines try to get to the bottom of the problem, before some terrible happens to the timeline. Lightly and accurately holding together a lot of characters, this is entertaining and intriguing. Very little in the way of spoilers so far.
