RATING/WARNING(S): T | swearing, lots of
WIP?/WORD COUNT: Complete | 3,400
MAIN CHARACTERS: The Twelfth Doctor, Clara, Nicola Murray, Ollie Reeder, Glenn Cullen, Terri Coverley

FIC SUMMARY: There's an emergency on-board a spaceship. Thank God the Doctor's been called in to help.

RECCER'S NOTES: The title should tell you everything you need to know. It's sweary, it's funny, it is magnificent. None of the other characters are named, but you can tell who's who almost immediately - the voices are creepily accurate. (And as accompaniment, have this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Blf073f2Lc)

WIP?/WORD COUNT: one-shot | ~ 4,000 words
MAIN CHARACTERS: Albus Dumbledore & Walt Disney

FIC SUMMARY: Albus likes Disney films. He decides to meet their creator.

RECCER'S NOTES: This is poignat and heartbreaking and sweet. Love their interactions, and how Walt Disney reacts to the wizarding world. Love the celebrations of two kinds of magic.

RATING/WARNING(S): General audiences
WIP?/WORD COUNT: 470 | Complete
MAIN CHARACTERS: Orac, K9

FIC SUMMARY: As K9 carries Orac they share a dialogue.

RECCER'S NOTES: Short, but full of humour. The fic is driven forward by the perfectly in character comedy. Orac may be the cleverest computer, yet doesn't dominate K9:)

WIP?/WORD COUNT: 1201 | Complete.
MAIN CHARACTERS: Georgina Jones, Vila Restal, Orac.

FIC SUMMARY: Vila makes an SOS call and instead of help, gets an unwanted breakthrough in scientific progress.

RECCER'S NOTES: A fic where no knowledge is needed of the other fandom. Vila and Georgie's confusion is perfectly pitched with humour. Georgie's insistence of helping even when she thinks Vila is crazy shows her irrepressible energy to a tee.

MAIN CHARACTERS: Sapphire, Steel, Mr Humpries.

FIC SUMMARY: There's something decidedly odd about the Grace Bros. Ladies and Gents' clothing department. Sapphire and Steel investigate.

RECCER'S NOTES: Lols all round. In this fic Steel meets something more deadly than time, but this is to be expected in the world of a 1970s sitcom....

FIC SUMMARY: Fill for the RotG kink meme.
Not all children are happy that their nightmares have disappeared, and as such North finds himself receiving a very unexpected letter several days before Christmas.

RECCER'S NOTES: Oh, this was funny! Also a win-win situation for everyone, the guardians, the Addams, even Pitch.

MAIN CHARACTERS: Elmo, The Count, Telly Monster, Grover, Big Bird, Bert, Ernie, Murray Monster, Steve Rogers, Clint Barton, Tony Stark, JARVIS, Thor, Natasha Romanov, Bruce Banner, Nick Fury, Phil Coulson

FIC SUMMARY: This fic is brought to you by the letter Y, the number 12, and the Avengers' decision to help fix what Loki and the Chitauri did to destroy parts of Manhattan. (Mostly that last part.)

RECCER'S NOTES:

Somebody rec'd this to me ages ago and I dismissed it as "not my thing" - but oh, I was wrong. This is DELIGHTFUL. Played so much straighter than I thought it would be, and it's adorable and funny and the perfect pick-me-up fic.

FIC LINK: Roused
AUTHOR LINK: [fanfiction.net profile] bStormhands
RATING/WARNING(S): Teen/mentions of abuse
WIP?/WORD COUNT: Complete/157185 words
MAIN CHARACTERS: Rapunzel, Aurora

FIC SUMMARY: A TangledxSleeping Beauty crossover where Rapunzel and Aurora try to live in a world outside the lie. They, their parents and their princes work through the aftermath of their adventures and create a happily ever after for themselves.

RECCER'S NOTES: Not your average Disney Princess story. This deals with the psychological effects that living a lie has had on the girls. Also, I'd like to leave an author rec for Disney fanfiction.

FIC SUMMARY: Crossover. Too bad there isn't a category called 'silly'...SpiderMan gets some help with his itchy suit and a costume designer gets a new career direction.

RECCER'S NOTES: I love Edna here. Pity she didn't let Peter get any words in.

MAIN CHARACTERS: Joan La Pucelle, Richard III of England, Edward IV of England, Marguerite d'Anjou | Margaret of Anjou, Richard Plantagenet Duke of York, Richard Neville Earl of Warwick, Henry VI of England
FIC SUMMARY: Joan la Pucelle calls spirits from the vasty deep...and they come.

RECCER'S NOTES: Raises the gooseflesh on a sunny afternoon. Richard III tells the story of The Wars of the Roses as if the events were shaped by the calling of monsters from who knows where. The Cthulhu Mythos perfectly fits into the first tetralogy. I also relished reading Henry transformed into a not so sweet character.

FIC LINK: A Load of Balls
AUTHOR LINK: [archiveofourown.org profile] greyknight
RATING/WARNING(S): All ages
WIP?/WORD COUNT: 4529
MAIN CHARACTERS: Timothy Claypole, Nadia Popov, Hazel the MacWitch.
FIC SUMMARY: Mr Meaker wants the ghosts to come up with some product ideas for Christmas, but there is an unexpected problem with Claypole's idea.

RECCER'S NOTES: A fic that perfectly encapsulates the comedy chaos of old kid’s TV show 'Rentaghost'. Mr Meaker wants to know what new money making idea the spooks have come up with and Mr Claypole’s is one where small monsters are kept in balls. Naturally, they escape and cause havoc. Everything you remember is squeezed into the fic including the Meaker’s neighbours and, of course, don’t go into the cellar!

There are a few formatting issues, but as the author explains at the end it was written as a last minute pinch hit while dealing with real life dodgy plumbing. A fitting situation in which to write 'Rentaghost' really!

MAIN CHARACTERS: Vila Restal, Idéfix | Dogmatix, Obélix | Obelix, Astérix | Asterix, Kerr Avon, Gracchus Nenjetepus | Gracchus Armisurplus, Panoramix | Getafix, Roman legionarie.
FIC SUMMARY: Vila Restal goes into a bar and meets... Dogmatix! Being a dog, Dogmatix doesn't have many lines, but he does play an important part.

RECCER'S NOTES: Huge fun. Vila slots right into the everyday happening in Asterix’s corner of Gaul. Magic potion is drunk and the Romans are bopped. Dogmatix is adorably doggy, Avon makes a great “genie” and the suggestions for Vila and Avon’s Roman names are fab.

RATING/WARNING(S): Rated M by the author. There's very little that might be objectionable here, IMO, but it really doesn't pull punches when it comes to how creepy and dangerous the Reavers are.
WIP?/WORD COUNT: 39,901, complete
MAIN CHARACTERS: Jean Luc Picard, Mal Reynolds, Q.

FIC SUMMARY: Captain Picard’s bad day just got a lot worse, courtesy of Q. Which is nothing compared to the day Malcolm Reynolds is about to have when River starts babbling about the kindly t’ien lung and his curious bunny rabbit... ST:TNG/Firefly crossover.

RECCER'S NOTES: This is an amazing story. I'm a pretty hard sell when it comes to crossovers between two space-based fandoms, but this works astonishingly well. It's a brilliant exploration of the Reavers, the Firefly universe, the Prime Directive (and the limits thereof), Q, and moral dilemmas. I loved every bit of it. It's mostly a Mal and Picard story (with bonus Q), but nearly all of the characters from both 'verses get a good showing in.

RATING/WARNING(S): All ages.
WIP?/WORD COUNT: 1927| Complete
MAIN CHARACTERS: Danger Mouse, Ernest Penfold, Colonel K, Peter Guillam.

FIC SUMMARY: Who better to track down a mole than a mouse and a hamster?

RECCER'S NOTES: Crumbs! A crossover between a kid’s cartoon and a serious spy drama. This is very much in the style of Danger Mouse. Spycandy catches the feel and the humour of the series with the OC’s being instantly recognisable types found in DM. Penfold is particularly well written and the author imparts secret information about the “Penfold Method.” Cor!

FIC SUMMARY: Blake never expected Death to come to take him personally. Or for Death to come bearing a cocktail glass ...

RECCER'S NOTES: Blake’s 7 and Discworld aren’t the most obvious bedfellows but this Post-Gauda Prime fic works. It manages to be both funny and touching.

FIC SUMMARY:
While inventorying the books in his “new” shop, Aziraphale discovers a special shelf that’s not of this world. Discworld crossover
RECCER'S NOTES:
Book lovers unite! A neat crossover that neatly marries the two worlds as well as the inter-dimensional bookshelf. The foot note is perfectly Pratchett-esque.

AUTHOR LINK: [archiveofourown.org profile] netla
RATING/WARNING(S): Teen
WIP?/WORD COUNT: 3854| complete
MAIN CHARACTERS: Harry Potter, Gene Hunt, Edmund Blackadder, Ros Myers, Loki(Marvel), James Bond, Kelly Bailey, Sherlock Holmes, Malcolm Tucker, Eleventh Doctor.

FIC SUMMARY: Director Blackadder of SHIELD had a dream. A dream of getting other people to do all the hard work saving the world while reaping the benefits of a huge pay check at the end of the day.

RECCER'S NOTES: A lot of multi-crossovers tend to be overwhelmed by trying to fit a multitude of characters in to a fic, but netla pulls it off with aplomb or even a turnip. This fic is a very funny version of ‘The Avengers Assemble’ movie but reworked with British super-heros, um, well, shall we say British characters for the sake of accuracy. Not only are the characters swapped but the locations are very British too. Marvel’s SHIELD has a swish HQ, while the London HQ has plastic Ikea chairs and our heroes go searching for Loki on a council estate. Perhaps not for people who can’t take the majority of the humour coming out of taking the Michael out of their faves. And with Malcolm Tucker involved there is some sweary-sweariness.

WIP?/WORD COUNT: 778
MAIN CHARACTERS: Kate Stewart, Frobisher, Sir David Attenborough

FIC SUMMARY: Sir David Attenborough's latest documentary has produced some unusual footage.

RECCER'S NOTES: Where to begin? In the audios & comics sometimes the Doctor travels with a Whifferdil called Frobisher – a shapeshifting private eye who tends to default to Penguin. Sir David Attenborough makes nature documentaries on many things, including penguins. Kate Stewart has weird in her job description. You might begin to see where this is going, yes? It’s a hugely fun ficlet, with a great punchline, and I don’t think you need to know any more than those three things to enjoy it. Also, penguins.

FIC SUMMARY: Exactly what it says on the tin.

RECCER'S NOTES: The Daleks make the mistake of invading the Discworld. It goes about as well as you might expect. I don’t think I need say more, really, or I’d probably be spoiling this small but perfectly formed treat of a crossover.
