The Holes in the Ground (Stargate Atlantis/Doctor Who)

Characters: Rodney McKay, Ninth Doctor

Rodney has absolutely no clue what to do, what to say, but the Doctor keeps spinning and keeps talking and maybe all he's expected to do is sit there and listen.

The story written for me for Multiverse 2007 -- and even more amazing, it was a pinch-hit.

This was a fantastic, brilliant story. The characters were spot-on, and the plot was one of those lovely ones where people meet each other in different orders due to time travel. And it managed to be character-ful and poignant and light and dark and profound and snarky. Must-read.

Summary: "Well, as adventures go, it's certainly not up to your usual standard, Doctor." Rose's smile is two points west of normal, but it's a brave attempt. She sets her tea down, untouched. "No running, no explosions, and no worlds about to end."

This was evocative, well-written. What if the Doctor was a Doctor of Time? This is certainly contradicting canon, but as the author disclaims at the start, she's deliberately ignoring everything before Nine, since she hasn't seen any Old School episodes at all.

Given that as a premise, if one is willing to dip into a completely different universe, where the past is extrapolated backwards, we have a fascinating piece of world-building here. Perhaps it isn't quite Doctor Who, but it was still good.
