Title: Intrusion
Author: Morgeil
Rating: All ages
Word Count: Drabble
Characters: Fifth Doctor, Turlough, Abbot Radulfus, Brother Cadfael

Crossover drabble. Would there was a full story along with it, but it’s a lovely idea.

 

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.

 

Hitch-Hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy June 21, 2009

Not all by any means, but three to start with:

*

Title: Seeking Lethe
Author: Kerr Avonson
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 1166
Characters: Ninth Doctor, Zaphod Beeblebrox

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?

*

Title: Implausible
Author: mithrel
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 2795
Characters: Fifth Doctor, Tegan Jovanka, Nyssa, Turlough, Arthur Dent, Ford Prefect, Trillian, Zaphod Beeblebrox, Marvin

The crews of both improbable crafts collide with an awful lot of fun, and plenty of the right sort of confusion.

Title: Need a lift?
Author: Tyler Dion
Rating: PG
Word Count: Drabble
Characters: Seventh Doctor, Ford Prefect

 

Pride & Prejudice June 20, 2009

Title: An Object of Some Interest
Author: golden orange
Rating: PG
Word Count: 1902
Characters: Jack Harkness, Elizabeth Bennet, Ninth Doctor

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.

Title: A Rough Portrait in Black and White
Author: vvj5
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 1376
Characters: Turlough, Charlotte Collins (Charlotte Lucas)

Another crossover written for the meme. Turlough runs into Charlotte Collins and a brief sketch ensues.

*

Title: Of Antiques and Aliens
Author: vvj5
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 790
Characters: Tenth Doctor, Fitzwilliam Darcy, Elizabeth Bennet

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

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.
