[personal profile] sanguinity
Title: Robots and the Men Who Love Them
Author: JaneTurenne
Pairing: Holmes/Robo-Watson; The Doctor/Robo-The-Master
Length: 1,078 words
Rating: General Audiences
Verse: Sherlock Holmes in the 22nd Century x Doctor Who
Author's summary: An inevitable crossover--silly, fluffy, slashy, robot-lovin', timey-wimey crack.

Reccer's comments: So, a thing I did not know: somewhere in Doctor Who canon,* there is a Ninth Doctor (but not that Ninth Doctor) whose traveling companion is a robot version of the Master.

Given that, one obviously must have the Doctor and robo-Master stop in during the 22nd century to have tea with Holmes and his robotic Watson. (And then one must have Holmes and the Doctor needle each other about who is more gauche for keeping around a roboticized ex-lover, while the robots themselves merrily get up to hijinks.)

Happily, JaneTurenne has ably answered the call for this absolutely necessary story. I giggled, and giggled some more.

* In The Scream of The Shalka, to be precise. It is available on the BBC website, 90 minutes runtime, in Flash animation -- which requires a lot of clicking 'next' to watch, because it only loads three-ish minutes at a go. Watching it is not necessary to enjoying JaneTurenne's story, however; I enjoyed the story even before I knew the Doctor Who part is canon.

btw, for the trivia hounds: this particular Ninth Doctor is Richard E. Grant, who was also Sherlock Holmes, Mycroft Holmes, and Jack Stapleton. The other Ninth Doctor, Christopher Eccleston, wasn't anyone so far as I know -- and that kind of slacking is very possibly why every other British actor has had to shoulder three Holmesian roles apiece.

Reccer's Comments: I began the month with a Whitehead/Pickering rec, and I'm in the mood to be self-indulgent and end the month with one, too.

I was under the impression that there weren't any Whitehead/Pickering vids on the internet anymore, but then a friend sent me this and I about died with glee. I love their stupid smiles, and their stupid shared glances, and their stupid touching, and Holmes' stupid trolling of Watson, and Watson's stupid inability to stop watching Holmes. There is not one single thing that is sophisticated about my enjoyment of this vid: it just makes me happy.

(And please let me apologize in advance for the poor quality of the footage: this vid was made a while back -- as you can tell by the older vidding style -- when the only footage generally available was a set of not-pristine VHS rips. But even with the blurry footage and wonky color: it makes me happy.)
