Crossover drabble. Would there was a full story along with it, but it’s a lovely idea.
The Tomorrow People December 4, 2009
Again, not one where I’m familiar with the show in question, but this is an intriguing story.
And another. (1990s version).
Harry Potter November 14, 2009
And this time, you’ll be glad to hear, I found more than a drabble…
The Fourth Doctor makes an error in Jelly Baby purchasing…
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.
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.
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.
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
Rating: All Ages / Teen
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.
Hitch-Hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy June 21, 2009
Not all by any means, but three to start with:
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?
The crews of both improbable crafts collide with an awful lot of fun, and plenty of the right sort of confusion.
Pride & Prejudice June 20, 2009
Jack likes a challenge, oh yes… This story grew on me and it’s very enjoyable and satisfactory to find that Elizabeth is more than capable of seeing through even Captain Jack Harkness.
Another crossover written for the meme. Turlough runs into Charlotte Collins and a brief sketch ensues.
Aliens pollute the shades of Pemberley.
Diana Wynne Jones April 8, 2009
If I say there should be much more of these, will somebody write me some?
Howl’s Moving Castle
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.
