Doctor Who fanfiction crossovers recs & more

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.

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.

 

Discworld July 20, 2009

Title: A Few Quiet Drinks
Author: Jadesfire
Rating: All Ages / PG
Word Count: 5057
Characters: Ianto Jones, Gwen Cooper, Owen Harper, Toshiko Sato, Jack Harkness, Igor, The Librarian, Ponder Stibbons, Angua, Susan Sto-Helit, Nanny Ogg, Granny Weatherwax.

A series of encounters between the Torchwood regulars and inhabitants of the Discworld in an unlikely bar. Very entertaining, with some really clever pairings. Jack ends up with Death of one sort or another again (but you were expecting that by now, right?) although he does get to have a drink with two witches first.

More fun with Death and Jack. It’s beginning to look as if they’re made for one another… 😉

If I say there should be much more of these, will somebody write me some?

Howl’s Moving Castle

What Planet Are You From? by TigerKat
All Ages
Word Count: 755
Characters: Jack Harkness, Toshiko Sato, Owen Harper, Howl (Howell Jenkins), Sophie, Calcifer.

As TigerKat points out, Torchwood is based in Cardiff and investigates odd activity. Howl is from Cardiff and definitely counts as odd. And so two of the handsomest and vainest characters in sf/fantasy meet up, Owen becomes a frog and Sophie and Tosh are sensible. There’s only one complaint: please, please write the rest of the week…

The Tough Guide to Fantasyland

Naked Without A Sword by vvj5 (yes, me again. Sorry.)
All Ages / PG
Word Count: 300 (Three drabbles)
Characters: Seventh Doctor, Ace, Eighth Doctor, Charlotte Pollard, Fifth Doctor, Tegan Jovanka, Turlough.

I love DWJ’s The Tough Guide to Fantasyland (which should be called the Cure for Cliched Fantasy really). In these drabbles, three Doctors take the Tour and attempt to safely purchase a sword.
