Recced because: One of my current fandom obsessions is Marvel's Avengers. So naturally I went looking for Avengers crossovers for this bunch of recs... and found a story I enjoyed several years ago, which has nothing to do with Marvel but a lot to do with Avengers; the original British team (accept no substitutes). To my surprise it looks like it's never been recommended here, neither has anything else by this author. It's time to change that, with a fun crossover set in the Swinging Sixties!
"Steed, has there always been a police box on the corner?"
"What police box?" asked Steed.
"The blue one just there," said Mrs. Peel, pointing below.
"That's got to be brand new. But the police don't use those anymore-- I can't think of why they would build one now," said Steed. "We'd best keep an eye on it."
Just then, the TARDIS door opened and the Doctor and Rose stepped out.
"I suppose it could be a fun space for two," said Steed, "but they can't have just put it there for that. I'm going to follow them. Stay here and keep an eye on that police box, in case they come back."
The Doctor and Rose walked down the street, hand in hand. She wore a short pink dress with a slightly-flared skirt, while he had opted for his usual brown pinstripes.
"Do I look psychedelic enough for the sixties?" Rose dropped his hand and twirled around, letting her skirt whip around in the breeze.
"Totally groovy," he said with a wink.
