Call and Answer by Morbane

  • Recommended by: djonn
  • Crossover with: The Chronicles of Narnia
  • Status: Complete

  • Synopsis: Two young women from sharply different cultural backgrounds find themselves on Ordeal in Narnia, which leads them to an abandoned Cair Paravel at a point early in the tale of Prince Caspian.
  • Comments: None of Duane's wizard characters appear herein; rather, the protagonists, Mariam and Elizabeth, are the author's own creations, drawn with sensitivity and a keen eye for background. The choice of new heroines is thoughtfully made, and makes the story viewable as a (highly intriguing) modern re-imagining of the early chapters of So You Want to Be A Wizard itself.

Journey's Dawn by ameretrifle

  • Crossover with: Doctor Who
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Post-Journey's End. Donna's looking for something, and she doesn't have the slightest idea what it is. She's in the worst rut she can remember, and for her to escape - well, it would take magic...
  • Comments: Absolutely terrifying in its spot-on examination of what, in the Wizardsverse, is wrong with the Tenth Doctor... and what "The Lonely God" really means.

To These Ends by melannen

  • Recommended by: djonn
  • Crossover with: Captain America: The Winter Soldier
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Jasper Sitwell teleports into Tom and Carl's yard and meets Nita Callahan.
  • Comments: Takes place just at or after the climax of Winter Soldier, establishing that several major MCU characters are (or have been, and/or possibly will be) wizards. On the Duane side, this appears to be set post-Wizards at War but prior to A Wizard of Mars.

Wizards in Winter by oniongirl

  • Recommended by: djonn
  • Crossover with: Batman
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: There's an alien eating improbable amounts of Gotham City's garbage — and the two teens who accidentally set it loose in the first place need the Bat-family's help to catch it, although Batman himself doesn't appear.
  • Notes: Has a sequel, Velveteen Wizards.
  • Comments: The story is told chiefly from Robin's and Black Canary's viewpoints, and features a number of other secondary DCU Bat-characters. The two teens noted are in fact Nita and Kit, and the story has a great deal of fun examining the in-multiverse implications of the crossover's occurrence. The author admits to drawing from many different strands of DC continuity; the overall tone of the narrative comes closest to that of the DCAU, while also effectively maintaining the integrity of Duane's voice and characterizations. And although the story establishes that this Batverse has its own wizards, it doesn't really qualify as an Alternate Universe as such.

Wizards in Winter by vibishan

  • Recommended by: Bee123, djonn
  • Crossover with: Calvin and Hobbes
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: The advertisement is a spiky red impact bubble on the back of his box of Chocolate Frosted Sugar Bombs. Mail in just five box tops for your very own HOW TO BE A WIZARD KIT* .
  • Comments: This falls into the class of crossover that really, really shouldn't work but in fact turns out to be brilliant. Of course Calvin gets an offer for a wizard's manual - which comes in the form of a comic book - off the back of his cereal box, and of course his Ordeal turns out to involve a planet of snowmen much as Dairine's involved a planet of sentient silicon chips, and of course Calvin's formal greeting to the Lone Power is “Hey, boogerbrains! Scram!” And then things get just plain wonderful in the best sense-of-wonder tradition. The writing here is sharp and exactly on key for both the source canons, and you can't help but be very, very worried about the Lone Power's odds now that Calvin has wizards' powers at his command.


How well does it match the trope?
