Unnecessary Vector

A TARDIS! Let me in! Please, I beg you for the love of God, hide me!

Title: Unnecessary Vector
Characters: Two, Jamie, Victoria, the Meddling Monk
Wordcount: 10,386 in five chapters
Summary: Someone is meddling with Sir Isaac Newton's timeline - oh dear oh dear oh dear.

A/N: My subtitle for this story would be Circumductus - that is, to 'lead around' (with the implication of a shortcut or a trick). It seemed fitting to their unwelcome guest, but too 'obscure' for a good title itself. Still...there you are.

Reciprocal Quandaries - the 1900 Expo with Two

It's what you might call 'cosmopolitan' but only in a limited way, since most of the cosmos isn't really represented, but for Earth it's quite nice, yes, quite nice.

Title: Reciprocal Quandaries
Characters: Two, Jamie, Polly, Ben
Wordcount: 33,161 in 13 chapters
Summary: Two, Ben, Polly and Jamie pause for a bit of restful holiday at the 1900 Paris Exposition - or so they wished.

A/N: Originally written for the tardis_gen ficathon here on LJ to fulfill a prompt by wishfulaces, this might be termed a 'straight-up historical' - for in spite of it being in Two's 'monster-ful' era this tale features a bit of intrigue at the 1900 Paris Exposition in which monsters might be noted only by their absence. Of course, who needs things like that when you have good old-fashioned human nature to deal with?

The one caveat here is the reader must be prepared to swallow a large coincidence - but probably not much larger than others we've seen (ala Black Orchid, Enemy of the World, etc.).

This took quite a lot of historical research though only a fraction of it is shown in the story, but I enjoy that sort of thing. As to the featured inventors: Rudolf Diesel is pretty much as he was, Hubert Booth has been aged about thirty years, allowed a better exhibition slot and given a granddaughter.

A Weaver's Shuttle

Yet didn't his brief-single-lived friends face this mortality every time danger raised its head?

Title: A Weaver's Shuttle
Characters: Three, with mention of Sarah-Jane and the Brigadier
Wordcount: 951
Summary: The Third Doctor faces his possible mortality after the events of 'Spiders'.

A/N: This arose from a drabble prompt 'shuttle' at dw100 but refused to stay drabble-sized.

My days are swifter than a weaver's shuttle, and are spent without hope. - Job 7:6

Two Scots and a TARDIS - ST Crossover

D'ye think he'd mind if I jus' pried this wee bit off to take a look?

Characters: Jamie, Montgomery Scott

Why It's a Police-Box!

Who climbs inside one of those every day? I want it changed.

Title: Why, It's a Police-Box!
Characters: One, Susan
Wordcount: 1,631
Summary: Why was the TARDIS in that shape anyway? First Doctor and Susan, in the junkyard.

A/N: This came out of wondering why it wasn't being an old car or something when its chameleon circuit broke - either it broke at some earlier point while in London or... well, something like this. The title is, of course, from what Ian says upon first seeing it.
