Choices by elisi [Reviews - 0]
Making decisions for others is fraught with problems, even when the intention is pure. In these stories the Doctor tries to give back some measure of control to people whose fates are already sealed. (Sort of fix-its that aren't fix-its. A bit hard to describe.)

Beware the Sparkles! (TW/Twilight cross-over crack.) by elisi [Reviews - 11]

My Immortal by elisi [Reviews - 41]
After settling in Rome in 2004, Buffy started dating a man known only as 'The Immortal', and who was - by all accounts - entirely too good to be true. What if one of his other names was 'Captain Jack Harkness'? This crossover explores how this could be possible, ties the two 'verses together (including all those flashbacks) and shows why Buffy and Jack were perfect for each other at that point in time. Canon compliant in the extreme.
