Cover Stories (All Ages)

Story: Cover Stories
Author: ChristinaK
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 3266
Author's Summary: Maybe they should have left the party when things started to get strange. (A crossover with Firefly)
Characters/Pairing: Rose, Jack, Firefly crew
Warnings: Mandarin swearing. Captainly nekkidness. Smooching.

Recced because: Anyone who knows me knows I love a good crossover. For some reson, DW and Firefly are perfect together when done right. This? Done right. ChristinaK (butterflykiki on LJ) has a deft touch with dialogue and character. The basic plot is that the crew of Serenity has gone to a ball with Inara in order to steal a painting. Only, it's a defabricator party, and a quarter of the guests (including Mal and Simon) are now naked. And then River (Tam, not Song) runs into a naked, handsome man who has his own agenda, which might just include giving River her first kiss. The author knows how to speak River's language, which makes the story all the more fascinating and hilarious. Take a look at a snippet:

Incidentally, if you like this one, the author does have a follow-up vignette posted on her page which isn't so funny, but is just as gorgeous.

Story: Doctor Who and the Nowhere Men
Author: Rowena Zahnrei
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 69403
Author's Summary: Doctor Who, meet the Beatles! When the TARDIS is yanked off course by a disturbingly powerful force, the Tenth Doctor and Rose Tyler find terrible shadow creatures are stalking John Lennon. Where are they from? What do they want? The solution may force the Doctor to break the 1st Law of Time.
Characters/Pairings: Ten, Rose, Four, Sarah Jane, Harry Sullivan
Warning: WIP

Recced because: Doctor Who AND The Beatles. What else could you ask for? How about an intricate timey-whimey plot! It's really well done as the Doctor and Rose try to save the Beatles' lives, while the Doctor, Sarah Jane, and Harry thought they were just going to enjoy the music! There's also neat glances of history and a whole society based on the music of the band! SO. MUCH. FUN.

Like I said, there is a warning that this is a work in progress story. It was last updated on December 27, 2008. It's well worth the read though!
