Author's Summary: There are no Time Ladies on Gallifrey any longer. The entire universe knows of the Weeping Angels. These two facts are connected.
Characters: Romana III, Susan Foreman, The Doctor (10th), The Doctor (8th), The Master (Simm), The Rani, Wilfred Mott
Warnings: None

Recc'ed because: One of the lines in the End of Time mentioned Time Lord dissenters and Weeping Angels in the same breath, and I always wondered whether the connection was something the writers had explicitly thought about or just something RTD threw out there on a whim. Well, voodoochild takes that idea and spins it into a mythos that is fascinating and chilling, like the myth of the banshee or the Fates, but somewhat in reverse. The narrative voice weaves the events of the last days of the Time War through with mystical context and metaphor, like a legend passed down by storytellers for generations. The end is chilling and amazing and it works--oh, it works brilliantly.

Author's summary: Romanadvoratrelundar has traveled a long way to find the Time Lord she's looking for - Rahm Emanuel. Now, whether the Daleks get them or they kill each other first is the real question.
Characters/Pairings: Romana II, Rahm Emanuel, Barack Obama, Irving Braxiatel
Warnings: RPF

Recced because: Ah, fobwatching. Where would we be without you? Some of the greatest crack theories been inspired by this very plot device and while the whole fobwatch fic genre has started to get a wee bit cliché at this point, it is still capable of providing us with pure cracky brilliance. Such as this story, where Rahm Emmanuel is secretly Irving Braxiatel inna fobwatch and Daleks are attacking the White House.

I mean, hasn't everyone wanted to read a story where Barack Obama and Romana team up to fight Daleks?

Story: i'll give you stars and the moon
Author: voodoochild
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 4,588
Author's Summary: Five women the Doctor has never met – and one who keeps coming back. Crossover with Ashes to Ashes, Criminal Minds, Firefly, Madeline L'Engle's Time Quartet, Battlestar Galactica, and Neil Gaiman's Sandman series.
Characters/Pairings: Ten, Nine, author-created Doctor, Jack
Warnings: None

Recced because: Crossovers can be tricky – how do you integrate the characters believably into each other's universes? But voodoochild does an admirable job with six separate fandoms, weaving the Doctor seamlessly into all of them, while providing an amusing explanation for Nine's Northern accent at the same time. All the crossovers here are deftly written, with a good ear for character voice, and enough details from canon sprinkled throughout to make each story feel like a true blend of both fandoms. And even though I've never seen Criminal Minds, I still enjoyed that crossover – these are all fine stories, worth reading regardless of whether you're familiar with every show or book.
