I know, I know - late again! I should have made this post last night. Instead, I fell on my face rather early. I'm hoping with all the New Who excitement that you still don't miss this next rec though! I figured (since I started off with light and sweet), that it would only be fitting to end with 'Funny' - which is where this next rec comes in...

Story: Light Years
Author: idon'tlikegravy
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 5048
Author's Summary: Crossover with Red Dwarf. The TARDIS throws a wobbly, sending the Doctor 3million light years from Earth and completely ruining Lister's poker night.
Characters/Pairings: The Doctor (10th)
Warnings: Crossover

Recced because: There are a lot of good crossovers out there - a lot of them serious, a lot of them dazzling and brilliant and they seem to make perfect, perfect sense. This is brilliant, not serious at all and the only thing dazzling is the lack of actual milk for your tea (no, you don't want to know, don't ask).

I love Red Dwarf. I've been watching since I was a teen - so not quite as long as I have been watching Doctor Who - but my love for it is almost as intense. This show is ridiculous and yet has scientific accuracy at a lot of points squashed between the 'Bzuh?!' and 'OMG, REALLY?!' - so there is something there for the space nerds to totally get into. Still, there is a lot of 'Bzuh?!' and 'OMG, REALLY?!' (s'what makes Red Dwarf, Red Dwarf) so of course the Doctor should totally crash into their universe and wreak havoc as he always does. Not that it changes much for the Boys from the Dwarf. Tis just another day (in many ways) for them. Though to be fair, the Doctor is more of a Wednesday type of trouble than a Monday trouble - so they don't mind it overly much.

This fiction is utterly hilarious from start to finish. And yet, it has serious moments that make you stop and pause and compare the two universes and how they very much mesh (even as they shouldn't). The love for the characters shines through the author's work. There is a gripping, believable storyline and the characterization is just simply gorgeous and completely spot on. This is another fiction I could go on about forever, but then you'd never get the pleasure of reading it as you would still be here, reading about my love of it. *Laughs* So! Since I'm always sure I'm not the slightest bit convincing, I am leaving a tidbit below - just to get you jumpstarted on this awesomeness...

*Laughs* Hope you enjoy this fiction as much as I have - please do let the author know what you think, as it just might convince them to make more!

This will be my last recommendation. You will have a new reccer in a few days - and I know they will bring us more epic brilliance for us all to love. I've had an awesome time and I can only hope you've enjoyed the fictions that I have pimped during my two weeks here. Thank you for indulging me and giving love to the authors of these fictions.

Premiere of New Who (and the intro of the Twelfth), tonight!! I know we'll all be wrapped up in that for the next several days at least. May you love it! And long live Doctor Who!

Until Next Time~

Story: Once There Was A Girl Named Emily
Author: Idontlikegravy
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 1190
Author's Summary: Torchwood Three receive a very strange inheritance. Crossover with Bagpuss.
Characters/Pairings: Gwen Cooper, Ianto Jones, Jack Harkness, Other Character(s)
Warnings: None
Recced because: I like crossovers, and this has to be one of the most unlikely Torchwood crossovers I've ever seen. Bagpuss was a children's TV show from 1974, which came from the same studio as The Master's favourite show, The Clangers. This story captures its gentle mood perfectly. And watch out for the killer last line!

Story: Fetch the Doctor, Jeeves!
Author: idontlikegravy
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 2329
Author's Summary: Crossover with Jeeves and Wooster. Bertie Wooster is on his way to visit Aunt Dahlia when he meets a very strange man, and things just keep getting odder.
Characters/Pairings: Fifth Doctor
Warnings: None

Recced because: Aside from the fact that it seems a good sunny, Sunday-ish sort of story to finish with, I'm in awe of anyone who dares tackle a Wodehouse crossover and this is all such fun. The Doctor's unconventional life causes Jeeves to raise his eyebrow above the customary 8th of an inch and Bertie inevitably has to purloin a valuable item from his uncle. Plus, Jeeves questions the sartorial choice of wearing a piece of celery on ones lapel. Well, naturally.
