I like a lot of different genres and styles. If you like how I review, though, it doesn't necessarily mean you will like the fics that I've posted. I've shared some darker "what ifs;" some so dark that I couldn't even get my friends to copyedit for me.
I've got two versions of a story where the Master from Doctor Who inserts himself into Ianto Jones from Torchwood's life and makes things in Ianto's background very AU. I try to keep the first two seasons of TW the same, just with some more missing scenes and different motivations behind certain things.
The one that is a crossover with the Buffy-verse ("Mastering Humanity") is more revised and re-written, and has a few more hopeful scenes. It also develops The Master's plot and plotting a little more.
I ask readers to remember that the Master almost always had a hint of glee when he directly killed a human, even when he was using that tissue shrinking ray in his earliest appearances.
I'm certainly not always feeling that dark, and am not sure when I will return to this continuity. Check the series notes in the headers and summaries. Many of the stories are finished and can stand alone.
If there were a way to filter out all "Twilight" stories from crossovers searches, I would.
Most of the stories that I have posted are for mature readers.
However, I started a Teen Level series of stories in the same universe as "Mastering Humanity" that will have sanitized recaps and memories.
If you read the teen level stories and are a grown up you can try the rated M ones.
If you are a completist and look at upload dates of stories, I still recommend that you "skip" the earlier Seductions of Ianto Jones for the revised and expanded crossover Mastering Humanity. If you still want to read all secret-origin Ianto in college with a DW crossover (the original verion) be aware that I'm not re-editing the small errors typographical errors in some of those chapters any further.
Feel free to go "la la la" in your head for anything that you might find disturbing.
If you're reading for character and plot it's in there, but there's a lot of stuff related to the birds, bees and other assorted insects as an integral part of the rated M stories.
Scroll down and see if it is your cup of tea.
NEW CROSSOVER STORY CHALLENGE: House and Torchwood where Doctor House is either Owen's or Ianto's biological father. Please drop me a line if you take up this challenge and post it.
CROSSOVER STORY CHALLENGE: Torchwood and The Sentinel
Naomi Sandberg never told Blair who is father was because she really didn't know due to an incident with aliens and retcon.
Captain Jack Harkness is Blair's biological father (based on the series he was born in 1969 which leaves a lot of room for long-haired (or wigged) Jack on undercover assignments).
If you're not that familiar with TS, let's just say Blair has a lot of Harkness' charm when it comes to approaching women, but Blair tried to tone it down after Jim and his fellow detectives started teasing Blair about "table legs." So perhaps there was some equal opportunity flirting that we didn't see in episodes.
- Bonus if you keep The Sentinel characters at their right ages... the show started in 1996 (pilot shot in 1995). This means interpreting what happened after the end of the series, or picking a favorite from another fan fic.
- Bonus if Blair interacting with Jack leads to AU-ey goodness in season 2 and 3 of Torchwood (i.e. Blair's brilliant mind and ability to look at problems along cultural lines plus years of detective work with Jim keeps more characters from TW alive with alternate/additional problem solving/action or allows Blair to figure out how to outsmart a paradox).

More about me:
I registered to be able to participate in on-line reviewing. I do have some pro-fiction on the internet that is free to read - one is in an online magazine and one is on my website. Send me a private message if you would like a link. I'm obsessive when I'm engaged in creative activities, which is why I do more reviewing than writing. I'm better at multitasking as an editor than as a writer in real-life.
I haven't been consistent in making my favorite stories or authors, because I do a lot of reading on other sites, and can sometimes go months before returning here.
However, I will generally "favorite" an author if I like at least three stories they have posted. Doesn't mean I love everything they have ever or will write.
I rarely read non-crossovers on shows that are still on the air, and actually rarely read any fan fic for shows that are still on the air.
Favorite crossover and single show fan fics are for SG1, Highlander, Torchwood, The Sentinel, Buffy, and a nod to Doctor Who and Harry Potter. In the past year I have gotten to watch most of the NCIS episodes, but am picky in reading fan fics about it.
Another show I really liked was Nash Bridges, but there isn't much fan fic out there for that show.
Least favorite crossovers are anything that combined a computer game or role playing game with one of my favorite shows.
Lately I've been enjoying Torchwood AU, missing scene and crossover stories concentrating on Jack and Ianto romance combined with adventure/action/sf plots.
Previously I enjoyed a lot of Highlander-SG1 crossovers (and still do if there are good ones that are new), and Buffy-universe- Harry Potter Universe crossovers (and like Willow/Snape and Buffy/Jack O'Neill relationship stories).
Enjoy Methos-centric Highlander the best, but like the other characters.
I enjoy the SG1 clone-Jack stories a lot.
Prefer plausible relationships based on the shows.
Will occasionally read non-established relationship stories if the plots and writing are very good and it features one of my favorite shows/characters.
