Rec - Wound Man by Prochytes

Yesterday's story was about Sky Smith, Sarah-Jane's adopted daughter. I went looking for more, accidentally put an "e" on the end of the name, and found this crossover:

Story: Wound Man
Author: Prochytes
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 1209
Author's Summary: They should never have let Skye find out what she was. (Crossover with Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.)
Characters/Pairings: The Rani
Warnings: None

Recced because: I'm a big fan of crossovers, and of the Marvel Cinematic Universe which includes The Avengers, the TV series Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., etc. Here Prochytes takes one of the cliches of Dr. Who crossovers, a character who is unknowingly a Time Lord, and shows just how bad it can be. This story does rely to an extent on the reader's familiarity with the Marvel side of the crossover, especially Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., but works reasonably well without it.

“Agent Ward and Ms. Cooper made another escape attempt this morning,” she said, as she wiped her fingers on her napkin. “I really must commend their perseverance. Plucky indomitability of the human spirit, and all that. But if they try it again, I’m afraid that I’ll have to feed them to Agent May.”

He wiped his mouth, and looked up again. “So, you still haven’t been able to find Harkness.”

She frowned. “Why would you think that?”

“Because if you had, that’s the first thing you’d have told me.”

“True enough.” She lounged back in her chair. “Blowing himself out of that airlock once he realized that he had come too late to warn you about the pendant was, I felt, unnecessarily histrionic.”

“It got him out, and away from you. Immortality must save him a fortune on parachutes.”
