    Two (well, sorta two) drabbles this time. First, here's a crossover I wrote in 1997.

    Title: I'm a Wee Bit Psychic
    Doctor: Eighth
    Setting: During '96 TV movie
    Crossover: Frasier

    "Sorry," the man apologised. "I wasn't watching..."

    "You're British, aren't you? It's so nice to meet a fellow countryman here."

    "Umm, yes, sure." The man scanned the room.

    "You're looking for something," Daphne declared. "I can tell; I'm a wee bit psychic."

    The man suddenly grabbed her shoulders. "Daphne, you must not give in to Doctor Crane's advances."

    "What? Frasier?"

    "No, Niles. It'll only end in pain."

    "Niles? Advances?" Daphne gasped, but he was already gone.


    When I wrote that, I had no illusion that it would fit within Frasier continuity. Not only would Niles' crush on Daphne have to remain a secret for more than two years, but she'd have to be able to be in San Francisco for New Year's Eve, 1999. Surprisingly, in the first episode of 2000, she revealed that was just where she was. As for the other, well, come December, 1999, it was really looking like I might make it after all. Then, in the Christmas episode one week -- one bloomin' week! :_| -- before the drabble's setting, Frasier let the cat out of the bag. So, with the slightest of tweaks and a new title...

    Daphne grinned. "Oh, I know all about that, but he has a girlfriend now."

    "Oh. Uhh, never mind."

    "Understood, sir." Barbara quietly stepped out.

    Bernard turned back to his researches when he heard the sound of flapping. He glanced up to see a large winged typewriter hovering just in front of him.

    "Barbara!"

    "Something wrong, Professor?"

    "Do you see...?" He stopped; the typewriter was gone. "Never mind. I'm just tired."

    "Very well, but there's a William Blake here to see you."

    "I had the strangest dream. I was in a castle, and this man from when I was a lad was there."

    "That's nice."

    "No, it wasn't, Moira. I was inside a forcefield..."

    "A what?"

    "I'm not sure. It was like a wall, but I could see through..."

    "Like a window."

    "No! I would die if he came near."

    "What happened?"

    "He came near."

    There was a knock at the door. Jamie opened it and stared at the little man. "Oh, no! You'll nay kill me again, Doctor!"

    The Commander stopped, but didn't turn around. He wasn't sure why, but the voice made him feel uneasy. He thought it sounded vaguely familiar, but he couldn't quite place it. In many respects, it reminded him of his own voice, but without the fullness and rich tones.

    That was it. It was how he sounded on tape. He turned around to see himself striding forward in a horrendous patchwork coat. No, not himself, but someone he once tried to kill.

    "Doctor, only you would steal another Gallifreyan's image out of spite. Worse, you put my visage in that... monstrosity!"

    This was a drabble I wrote after hearing a particular Christmas song.


    Title: The Littlest Time Lord
    Crossover: Peanuts

    "Another TARDIS is materialising!"

    "In here? Can it do that?"

    "It's doing it!" The Doctor gritted his teeth as the wheezing began and the new shape appeared. The red box only came up to his waist and had a sloping roof. Its door opened, and a small black and white figure emerged.

    "I'll be!" the Doctor yelled, smiling. "I haven't seen you in regenerations!"

    "Waaaahhhhey!" the newcomer shouted.

    "What did it say?" Peri asked.

    "'It's been a dog's age.' Peri, meet Snoopy. We went to the Academy together."

    This is a follow-up to the drabble "Come with Me" above. I always intended to do a third drabble and longer story to follow, but never did either.


    Title: Villain Ex Machina
    Crossover: The New Batman/Superman Adventures
    Setting: During "World's Finest" (AKA The Batman/Superman Movie)

    His enjoyment was ruined when a large shape materialised and a man emerged. "Come with me if you want to live."

    The Joker's survival instinct returned, and he staggered to his feet.

    "Valeyard," an unseen youth said, "are you sure this is wise?"

    Stron returned to his bench, proud that he had lived up to the Olympic ideal.

    * * *

    The column stopped, and the Doctor checked the reading. "Steven, Vicki, we've landed." Then he realised they weren't there.

    "We've landed," he repeated when he found them.

    "Shhh," Steven whispered. "We're watching Coronation Street."

    "I will not shush!" the Doctor yelled. "It's a lovely day outside. Turn off the TSV now and come along."

    "But Doctor," Vicki whined.

    "One more word, and I leave that thing here."

    The pig looked at the newcomers. "Are you Duck Vader?" he asked.

    "I believe not," the Doctor said.

    "Oh. I'm waiting for Duck Vader to trick me into opening the door so he can capture me."

    "You want to be captured?" Tegan asked.

    "It's in the script."

    "In that case, we wouldn't want to interfere," the Doctor said. He led the others back to the TARDIS.

    "We should go."

    "Too right," Tegan agreed.

    Some of you with long memories may remember I did something similar about five years after this with Obi-Wan. Or you may not, but I did.

    He turned to the attendant. "Mister Paprika, please." The man set a neon-coloured can on the bar. The Doctor pulled the tab, then took a long drink.

    "Aaaaahhhhh!" he enthused, lifting the can into the air and being careful that the label was clearly visible.

    "Now that's a Time Lord's pop!"

    The Doctor's accomplice played his part adequately, if not very well. He flubbed many of his lines, which somehow only seemed to strengthen the humans' confusion. Still, the old Time Lord found it increasingly hard to suppress a giggle as he watched his two companions arguing about whether this stranger was, in fact, him!

    This is based on the first scene of Dawson's Creek, which had debuted three weeks earlier.

    "Where are you going?" the Doctor asked. "Stay here tonight."

    "Doctor, I can't spend the night anymore."

    The Doctor looked nonplussed. "Why not?"

    "Things have changed! I'm fifteen; I have breasts now. You're... half-human."

    "I've always been half-human."

    "No, you haven't."

    "Oh, right."

    "My point is, things aren't so innocent anymore, see?

    "No."

    "Umm, okay, how many times a day do you walk the Dalek?"

    The Doctor looked flustered. "Joey, Daleks don't walk. They have little rollers."

    "I stand corrected."

    "Sholakh? The others?"

    "All dead."

    "How'm I going to get off this rock now?" Kro moaned.

    "Rock?"

    "You know, this planet? Ribok or whatever you call it?"

    "I don't understand you."

    Kro rolled his eyes. "I'm from another planet. You know, outer space? The stars? Those lights in the sky?"

    "He sounds like Binro," someone said.

    "Now you add heresy to your group's crimes," the captain hissed.

    "Oh, spack."

    Here's one of many pieces I've done inspired by someone's typo.


    Title: Into the Nexus
    Doctor: Sixth

    The Doctor ignored her and bounded from one side of the central console to another. The TARDIS lurched again.

    "Doctor..."

    "I heard you!" he snapped. "We're being pulled in!" He hit more controls.

    "In? To what?"

    "The Casual Nexus!"

    * * *

    The TARDIS was still. "That wasn't as bad as I thought it'd be," the Doctor admitted.

    Peri chuckled. "Umm, Doctor?"

    "What?" He saw where she was looking. "No!" In a panic, he switched the scanner to internal view. Sure enough, his image stared back leisurely in Cardigan and Dockers. "Nooooooooo!"

    I'm somewhat loath to do this, because I like the coincidence that two of the drabbles I have up are "Into the Nexus" and "Out of the Cauldron." But time waits for no pun.

    "Perfect! I get on very well with world leaders."

    "Especially since your regeneration."

    Before the Doctor could respond, a door opened. "Thank you, Mister President," a young blonde said as she emerged. The travellers watched her leave, then turned to see a man inside the room.

    "Come in," he said with a raspy Southern accent.

    "Hello, Mister... President? I'm the Doctor, and this is Perpugilliam Brown."

    "Peri, sir," Peri corrected.

    "Peri," the man said, smiling, "how would you like to help your country?"

    "Sure. How?"

    "Could you help me find my pants?"

    He decided to stretch his legs and found Wallycornavaritol by the water dispenser.

    "Heya, Thete," Wally said. "Taking a break?"

    "Before my brain implodes. And your report on Earth?"

    "Already done. I timescooped and interviewed a human," Wally said.

    "Isn't that against..." The Doctor was interrupted by his bizarrely coiffured supervisor.

    "Theta, I need a chart of all digits lost, organised first by limb..."

    Okay, here are three drabbles this time. The first was intended as a standalone, but a month later, I added two more.

    Title: The Display Model
    Crossover with: Are You Being Served?

    Mash wheeled out a mannequin. This is the new display model."

    "I don't think much of the face," Mr. Humphries said.

    "What's it do?" Miss Brahms asked.

    "Don't know. But there is a seam across the fingers."

    Suddenly, the mannequin rose and stepped forward.

    "How fascinating!" Mrs. Slocombe gushed.

    The fingers popped open, and a blast of energy hit Captain Peacock in the shoulder. Everyone scrambled behind counters as it continued to fire.

    "It's gone mad!" Mrs. Slocombe screamed.

    "So what else is new?" Mr. Lucas hissed back.

    * * * * * * *

    Title: The Display Model - Continuation
    Originally Posted: 20 April, 1998


    As the mannequin's rampage continued, Mister Humphries and Mister Lucas sat behind their counter and commiserated. "Oh no!" Humphries shouted.

    "What?"

    "Where's Mister Grainger?"

    Lucas ventured behind the counters, ducking shots as he went. "He's sleeping!"

    Humphries sighed. "Mister Grainger, are you free?"

    Grainger startled. "I'm free. What's happening?"

    "The display model's trying to kill us!" Lucas yelled.

    "It shot Captain Peacock!"

    "It was just in the shoulder. I'm fine," Peacock's voice added. "Reminds me of Africa!"

    Grainger dropped to the floor and joined the others. "Oh no," he hissed.

    "What?" Humphries asked.

    "I have to go spend a penny."

    * * * * * * *

    Title: The Display Model - Conclusion

    "Get down!" Mister Mash yelled as he pulled the executive behind a rack just before shots flew past.

    "Unhand me, Mash!" Rumbold yelled indignantly.

    "Sir, we're under attack!" Captain Peacock yelled.

    A bell dinged. "Someone's in the lift!" Mrs. Slocombe shouted.

    The doors opened. "It's Young Mister Grace!" Peacock said.

    "He'll be killed!" Mister Humphries added.

    The mannequin turned, and Mister Grace ducked as a shot flew over him. "Stop this at once!" he yelled with surprising force. Suddenly, the display model exploded. "Come on out everybody. You've all done very well."

    "I'm a little bit forward," Pepe crooned.

    "And I got left behind! Left behind, get it? Hey, this isn't South Croydon!"

    "What do you think?" Pepe asked.

    "We'll get back to you," the voice in the darkness said.

    At that moment, a pair of spindly black legs supporting what seemed like nothing more than giant red lips stepped into the spotlight.

    "Am I in the right place?" the mouth asked.

    "No," the voice answered. "Tegan tryouts are down the hall."

    Here it was, almost a year after I'd started writing drabbles, and I'd not yet done a Trek one (in any incarnation). So this was a bit, umm, broad.

    "Fawdare, sir."

    "Of... course."

    "I'll scout ahead, sir," Fawdare offered. Kirk nodded, and the ensign disappeared into the brush.

    "What... brings you..." Kirk was interrupted by a scream. He and the others found Fawdare sprawled on the ground. "Doctor... do... something!"

    "Jim, I'm the Doctor; I'm not a medical practitioner."

    Ace groaned. "I'll be in the TARDIS."

    Ian blushed. "I thought you did this."

    Barbara looked at her note. "I should've recognised Susan's handwriting."

    Ian looked at the doorway. "Susan!" The girl slumped down the steps.

    "We appreciate the gesture," Barbara said, "but there's nothing between Ian and me."

    "I'm sorry."

    "It's fine," Ian said. "Run along." Once Susan was gone, he laughed. "Do you think she suspects?"

    "Benton..."

    "I don't understand that part myself. It's not usual to become someone's double. You do know about regeneration?"

    "Well, yes, but... Doctor? Umm, can it be you?"

    "Yes Miss Shaw. I... What's so funny?"

    "You are, Sergeant." Benton spun around to see the real, unregenerated Doctor leaning against his TARDIS. Liz burst into laughter.

    Benton blushed. "Doc, I didn't know. Please don't tell the Brigadier."

    Skipping over a couple that don't really fit here, we get to this crossover.

    The plan went almost perfectly. He'd tracked his human foe to this ship and sabotaged it. He was flying away when he noticed that his enemy had somehow escaped and was swimming for a small island.

    It didn't matter. He only delayed the inevitable and gave the Master a chance to gloat. The professor struggled ashore breathlessly, then saw that accursed fowl.

    "So, Professor Jenkins! My old nemesis! We meet again, but this time the advantage is mine!"

    John stammered an apology.

    "You learn your line?"

    "Yes, ma'am."

    The Rani nodded and drew her pistol.

    "What's that for?"

    Ignoring him, she opened the nearest door and fired. Holding the door open, she declared, "Your cue, Mr. Booth."

    The actor gulped, then ran through the door, past the president's body, and down to the stage. "Sic Semper Tyrannis!"

    In the shadows, the Rani smiled.
