Star Crossed

Doctor Who fanfiction crossovers recs & more

Angel May 15, 2010

Title: Boys (or Down With the Patriarchy)
Author: uktechgirl
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 3392
Characters: Seventh Doctor, Ace, Angel, Wesley Wyndham-Price, Winifred Burkle, Charles Gunn, Harmony, Lorne, Spike. (Set S5 for Angel; hints of both Ace/Fred, and Wesley/Fred).

This is just gorgeous, and I don’t say that lightly. It’s well-written and with everyone in character, some lovely gems of lines, while musing on the nature of Doctors and Companions, Watchers and Slayers, and Boys and Girls. And Angel phones security just to say, “You suck.” If there were more crossovers like this, fandom would be a better place.


Title: Strangers in the Night
Author: Suzanne
Rating: All ages / PG
Word Count: 2755
Characters: Eighth Doctor, Angel, Charley

A chance encounter on a railway station in 1932. A good, thoughtful piece with excellent characterisation all round. And I do like the nod to Brief Encounter, too.


Buffy & Angel Update June 20, 2009

Title: Hope For the Future
Author: ClocketPatch
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 1230
Characters: Ian Chesterton, Rupert Giles

It turns out Giles had an unexpected mentor of his own. (Now, I have trouble imaging Ian having anything to do with the Watcher’s Council, but if anyone can convince me it’s Clocket in this lovely vignette with the two characters.)


Title: 1+1=Tacos
Author: MaraJaded
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 2122
Characters: Tenth Doctor, Winifred Burkle.

This is a sweet encounter (and you just know these two would get along), but it’s the author’s ability to write such a convincing Fred-voice that impresses, especially given that this is an AU for Fred while she’s trapped in Pylea.


Angel & Buffy Again May 3, 2009

Two more good stories I found, one for each show:


Title: Edit
Author: Marcus Rowland
All Ages
Word Count: 4367
Characters: Ninth Doctor, Rose Tyler, Jack Harkness, Dawn Summers

The Doctor arrives in LA, 1997 and sense that someone’s been playing around with timelines. It’s a neat story based around Dawn’s insertion into Buffy’s timeline, which is an idea that makes huge sense for a Doctor Who crossover to deal with.



Title: Another Time, Another Place
Author: xwingace
PG (Mainly for featuring Jack and Spike and being Angel and Torchwood.)
Word Count: 2997
Characters: Jack Harkness, Spike, Fred Burkle, Harmony

Spike finds Cardiff under Harmony’s desk. It’s a fun fic (look at the character list) with a dark edge, because Torchwood are five years in the future and Angel’s team don’t seem to exist any more.
