Title: Truthiness And Relative Dimensions In Space
Rating: PG-13
Series: The Colbert Report, Doctor Who
Spoilers: Overall, everything is fair game. See individual chapters for specifics.

Disclaimer: This is a work of parody. Although reference is made to real persons, places, and events, the dialog, actions, and content are products of the author's imagination only. Fictional characters and settings are the property of the BBC, RTD, STC, TCR, and various other initials which are not mine.

Summary: Obnoxious right-wing pundit Stephen Colbert catches a lift with Four'n'Sarah Jane...and, in his younger days, Ten'n'Jack. Can Four cope with the older Stephen acting like he knows what he's doing? Can Ten avoid saying anything to the younger Stephen that will cause a paradox? And can the rest of space and time handle the truthiness?

For those just coming in, don't be daunted by the bird's nest of links - just start at the top and work your way down, until you're either bored or hooked. Also available on A Teaspoon And An Open Mind, which is kinder to fans of linear layouts.

Winner in the "Classic Who: Crossover" category during the second round of the Children of Time Awards. And, perhaps more importantly, dubbed "neato keen" by [livejournal.com profile] cot_tossed.

Yessss .... multi-part! Love it; can't wait :-D

Yay :-)

Ahahaha. The temporal grammar is getting to you already, I see.

This is so freaky. I was watching the Aldrin episode and I was just thinking "That proves Stephen's a Timelord, he has enough room under his desk for two Starbucks!" I was all ready to go start collecting evidence for a WMG post on TV Tropes. The Report doesn't have a WMG page yet and it clearly needs one.

I was thinking it's another in the Ten-goes-back-and-marries-his-old-companions theme. There's already Susan and Leela marrying Tennant look-alikes, now Jo too??? XD (Not to mention Rose! Oy, Ten. Oy.)

(BTW, check your google docs!)

Watched Spearhead from Space tonight! (Liz is very smart, and under the right lighting she'd look a bit Ten-ish .. HMMMM.)

.. but point being, Delphon is a one-off reference and there's no Master at all, so you're safe there. ;D

Oh, believe me, it was no trouble at all. ;D

Awesome! I probably won't have time to look at it till next week, if that's okay.

This is one of the most awesome fics I have ever read and I am infinitely grateful to have found it through [livejournal.com profile] cot_tossed. (I am now friending this fic journal because it looks like the rest of your fic is similarly cracked yet awesome :D)

[identity profile] biichan.livejournal.com 2009-03-08 07:49 am (UTC)(link)
I've read a lot of the others here now. Truthiness Etc is still my favorite, but I really liked Expecting, The Thing With Feathers, and your Sailor Pluto story as well :)

In other words, you may be responsible for getting me into Fake News fandom. (I'm even seriously contemplating writing some fic, though I should probably watch a bunch more episodes before starting. I have this weird desire to do a Watchmen crossover, mostly because Rorschach and Steven remind me of each other.)

I know this is super late, by holy crap! I thought I was the only person in the universe who thought a Fake News/Doctor Who Crossover would be AWESOME.

You're my new hero. Seriously.

It's entirely possible that I bookmarked this at least six months ago. Possibly last year? And then I read it yesterday! Until two in the morning! I spent the whole time going ♥___♥.

Trying to catch the fiddlier references was incredibly fun.

Hey! Stumbled across this on Teaspoon And An Open Mind, and then followed it back here to rec it to a friend who's spent more time in fake news than I have. I love it a lot. I'm more familiar with TCR as a show than a fandom, so I admit I went in just expecting some two-dimensional hilarity, the Doctor confronted with Stephen's somewhat abrasive personality--but instead you drew him out into a complex character with internal growth and development and such, and I loved it. (Jack as the protective big brother just about melted me. Totally my favorite part, for all I loved it all.)

I keep getting the mental image of the kind of pieces TCR/TDS would do in the Whoniverse on various alien goings-on as they became more and more publicly known. I can just see TDS hiring a Senior Extraterrestrial Correspondent to round out the team.

Quick question, one of the spin-off stories in the 'Extras' looks like it's flocked--is it available somewhere for me to read it? I'd love to see what else you have written in this universe.

Thanks for the story!

Best. Thing. Ever.

I have seriously spent the past two days overloading on this and I am so happy. This was honestly the best fic experience I've ever had in fandom. Seriously, I wish the Lambda awards had a category for fanfic because seriously, this was amazing. I need more! I'm definitely going to have to better acquaint myself with Fake News, because nothing can keep me from reading your entire masterpost!
