Doctor Who fanfiction crossovers recs & more

Highlander February 15, 2012

Title: Friendly Drink
Author: KerrAvonson
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 450
Characters: Ninth Doctor, Rose Tyler, Methos, Duncan Macleod

Amusing vignette – the confusion of non-linear meetings for time travellers and immortals… (The author has also written two drabble crossovers with Methos and the Doctor: Geodesy – the First Doctor in the Library of Alexandria – and Fall, a double drabble featuring the Second Doctor and Methos in the Himalayas).

Title: Twisting Timelines
Author: amaresu
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 1737
Characters: Tenth Doctor, Martha Jones, Methos (slight Methos/Martha)

I don’t really know Highlander (still) but this is a well-written, thoughtful crossover, with Martha and Methos (and the Doctor) meeting in a non-linear way, not unlike River Song and the Doctor would later.

Title: The Lady and the Temp

Hugely enjoyable and well written short crossover, even for someone like me who’s never read the books.

Title: Another Time
Author: belantana
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 671
Characters: Tenth Doctor, Jo Portman

A brief encounter on a train that is perfectly, perfectly in character for both and rather lovely, playing on the fact that Tallulah and Jo were both played by Miranda Raison.

Title: Outmanoeuvred
Author: vvj5
Rating: All ages
Word Count: Drabble
Characters: Sarah Jane Smith, Harry Pearce

Sarah Jane meets an undercover spook in the 80s.

 

Buffy July 20, 2011

Title: Ten Trips Still To Be Taken
Author: atraphoenix
Rating: All ages / PG
Word Count: 3114
Characters: Tenth Doctor, Drusilla

It’s an odd combination, but it works, and the use of Drusilla’s POV gives us the Doctor and his travels in a new light. Beautiful, and clever, and sinister.

Title: Apocalypse: The bird in the box
Author: Calapine
Rating: PG / All ages
Word Count: 3276
Characters: Harry Sullivan, Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart, Sergeant Benton, Liz Shaw, Rupert Giles.

A dark and Doctor-less UNIT AU crossover, which is very well-written and not without hope. It’s also an especially good Harry story – well-characterised, and not an imbecile.

 

Stargate (SG1) June 17, 2011

Title: A Jaffa, an archaeoogist and two Air Force officers walk into a library
Author: aces
Rating: All ages.
Word Count: 1289
Characters: Eleventh Doctor, Amy Pond, Rory Williams, Daniel Jackson, Jack O’Neill, Teal’c, Sam Carter

A lovely bit of fun in which the two teams meet in a library, and there is world-threatening danger and the Doctor and Daniel bonding over bow ties, books and the promise of a visit to yet another library.

Title: T is for Time (Non-Encounters of the Deeply Weird Kind)
Author:

Rating: All ages
Word Count: 3223
Characters: Fourth Doctor, Leela, Eighth Doctor, Second Doctor, Jamie McCrimmon, Zoe Heriot, Sixth Doctor, Peri Brown, Third Doctor, Fifth Doctor, Tenth Doctor, Martha Jones, Seventh Doctor, Ninth Doctor, First Doctor, Ian Chesterton, Barbara Wright, Eleventh Doctor, Daniel Jackson, Sam Carter, Jack O’Neill, Teal’c, Vala Mal Doran.

Highly entertaining multi-era fic in which the team encounter all of the Doctors without ever realising it’s the same person.

Title: gate Travel
Author: Apple Cameron
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 127
Characters: The Doctor, his companion (any era you choose), the Star Gate

The Doctor, not overly impressed by the Gate.

Title: Perchance
Author: a_grey_eyed_girl
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 1657
Characters: Tenth Doctor, Donna Noble, Dream

Again, I’m not familiar with Sandman, but this reads as well done and interesting (love the ending with Donna.)

Title: [the other side of the sky]
Author: aces
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 2464
Characters: Jack Harkness, various of the Endless

As I say, I’m not familiar with the crossover, but this is beautifully done and Jack is the perfect subject for such a story.

 

The West Wing May 13, 2011

Exploration of Remix_Redux 2011 revealed two excellent West Wing crossovers, the original and the remix:

Title: The Doctor for America
Author: krabapple
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 3208
Characters: Tenth Doctor, Joshua Lyman, Leo McGarry, CJ Cregg, Toby Ziegler, Sam Seaborn, Josiah Bartlet, Donna Moss.

Leo has a new assistant he can’t stand. That would be the Doctor. This is great fun, and also a lovely sequence of vignettes of the Doctor snatching an important moment with each member of the Bartlet for America campaign staff.

Title: They’ve All Gone to Look for America (The Doctor’s Note Remix)
Author: pocky_slash
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 3878
Characters: Eleventh Doctor, Joshua Lyman, CJ Cregg, Sam Seaborn, Leo McGarry, Toby Ziegler

An engaging and very well-characterised remix of the above, in which Eleven finds time to take each of the main West Wing characters listed on a one-off trip in the TARDIS.
