Sorry I'm late. I was away this weekend and got home far later than expected. However, it's still Sunday in some parts of the world, so I'm squeezing in rec #7. I hope you've found something to enjoy in the recs this week. It's certainly been fun compiling them! Here, then, is rec #7:

Story (Series, in this case): Adventures of a Line-Hopper (crossover with Buffy the Vampire Slayer)
Author: secooper87
Rating: Teen overall, though several stories are rated All Ages
Word Count: 263,876 and counting
Author's Summary: The Doctor met Buffy in an alternate timeline, one from before the War, in which Daleks invaded the gym at Hemery High School instead of vampires. Now Buffy and the Doctor must learn about this new reality.
Characters/Pairings: Doctor/Buffy-ish and yet basically gen with canon pairings, mostly 10th & 11th Doctor with references to 8th & 9th, Martha, Donna, River, Amy, Rory, and Buffy and the Scooby gang.
Warnings: None

Recced because: One of the best things a crossover can do is give new insights into familiar characters as they interact with characters and settings that are canonically unfamiliar to them. This series does that well, as Buffy and the Scoobies interpret the Doctor in various incarnations through their own filters and vice versa. Also, the Doctor and Buffy's relationship is nearly as timey-wimey as the Doctor's relationship with River, not to mention the two intersect.

Long series gets a long teaser. )

Well, the week is over, but I have one more rec to offer. This time it’s about cake. And why not?

Story: An Ingenious Plan
Author: secooper87
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 2326
Author's Summary: Ten. Chained to Three. Naked. With Cake. And the Master. Gallifrey is gone, and so are the spare parts shops that the Doctor needs to fix up his Tardis. Luckily, he's found a way to deal with that!
Characters/Pairings: Third Doctor, Tenth Doctor, Eleventh Doctor, Ninth Doctor, The Master (Delgado)
Warnings: None. Unless – here be cake?

Recced because: There is a sub-genre of Doctor Who whose very existence is fast becoming the stuff of legend.* It involves Ten, naked, chained to Three, and covered in cake, due to the scheming of the Master. And, as yet, an amazing lack of smut.

This one is the latest offering in this mouth-watering category – and not only does it have all the correct ingredients, mixed together in yet another new and ingenious way, but I just love the logical yet crazy and timey-wimey notion that Nine, Ten, and Eleven (due to Gallifrey’s inconvenient non-existence) head straight back to Three’s UNIT lab every time they need a spare part. I mean, you don’t need me to tell you anything further about why that’s brilliant, do you? Other than that, yes, they are all splendidly in character. Multiple Doctors! The Master with a rubbishy plan! Cake! Theft! Enjoy!

(Let me put my hand up and admit that I manage this series on Teaspoon, but I promise I have nothing to do with the origin of it, or any of the fics but one. I just keep things tidy.)

*Well, all right, maybe not, but I’m sure it will be eventually….
