A Teaspoon And An Open Mind: A Doctor Who Fan Fiction Archive

I have a tumblr to blog about writing and fic and Doctor Who and such. I regularly post updates to it even when I haven't published a fic in awhile. Currently I'm writing TCLoS&J for NaNoWriMo, so you can see how it's progressing there. See link above, follow if you'd like, and I'll follow back! :)

I like or love all of the companions, and I don't like companion hate. All of them are characters with strengths and weaknesses, all are flawed in some ways, and that makes them characters, not caricatures.

Martha and Rory are my favorites from New Who, but I also love Mickey, Donna, River, Rose, Jack, Jackie, Sarah Jane and Amy. I'll never write hateful fic about any of them. All of my fic is positive for ALL of the characters (while I still try to make sure they keep the flaws that they have, as well.)

If there's some major character, especially Martha or Rose, that you can't stand and don't like to read about, you may want to keep away from my fic, because my Rose and Martha get along well with each other in the few hours they got to meet, and they talk about each other with the other characters often.

I also love all the Doctors, including the Classic Doctors and all three modern Doctors. I'm working my way very slowly through some of the old serials. So far, Five, Eight and Two are my favorites.

My stories so far:

My Complicated Universes Series is a canon-compliant set of stories. I'm about halfway done with it right now. The rest is all plotted out, it's just a matter of getting it out of my brain. It should be read in this order:

Never Give Up - I have read or at least skimmed pretty much every 10.5/Rose piece out there that I can find, and I really wanted to find something unique to add or else I swore I'd never write post-Doomsday or Post-Journey's End. So I hope I did that. I actually have issues believing Rose would get to the point of suicide, but I think it works in the story. (Obviously, I do not condone or encourage suicide.) This story is now expanded upon in A Complicated Journey. Also note that the last section of NGU will probably continue to be tweaked and edited as I figure out what works best for the rest of the series for the two of them.

A Complicated Event in Time and Space - Watching Journey's End just frustrates me to no end with all the potential wasted. I felt like there were so many unresolved issues between characters and interactions that should have happened on the TARDIS with these nine characters all brought together. So, I wanted to do a piece where I really take the time to examine not only the relationships between various characters, make them have conversations that they should have, and also do character studies on how each has grown over the past four(ish) years. I also wanted to give Rose and TenII a foundation to start building on, early and also show the beginnings of how Martha and Mickey got together. I know there's a heavy 10/Rose 10.5/Rose leaning, and then a good bit of Martha/Mickey, but I tried to give everyone a moment to shine.

A Complicated Journey - This is the Rose / TenII Post-Journey's End fic that most everyone writes. It starts in the midst of the end of ACEiTaS. Because of what happened in Never Give Up and ACEiTaS, Rose and TenII have already spent quite a bit of time together. Rose knew in advance she'd probably end up back in Pete's World and she figures out that TenII will be the person who someday visits her in Never Give Up. All of this makes it easier for her to accept TenII. I tried to do something a little different by making the focus of the fic a road trip before they get back to London instead of shoving them into life in London right away. I hope that all of these things makes it at least somewhat different from typical post-JE fics. It also sets up the beginnings of the major story arc interlacing the entire series.

The Complicated Lives of Smith and Jones - Because Martha and Mickey need more love. I love that RTD put them together, but hate how he did it with no forewarning. It was just out of the blue. This is the story of how they got together, continued from their conversations and time spent together in ACEiTaS through how they became a couple, their wedding all the way through seeing the Doctor in End of Time. It also continues the series' story arc.

Hallucinations - I love Martha Jones so very much. I wanted to write a YTNW story where Martha can still be seen as strong, but also to bring in 10, Jack and Mickey, who, aside from her family, are the 3 most influential men in her life that we know about. I thought it'd be interesting to have Mickey in a YTNW story, as well. Also, I wanted a story where the Doctor really appreciates what Martha has gone through for him. Maybe he had to wait until he was 11 to really get it, but I wanted him to GET IT. :) I know the timey-wimeyness of it is a bit much, so I wrote the Companion Piece for anyone who wants to know the "how" part. It's not necessary to read, though.

All of the above fit into the same universe, they reference each other occasionally. However, everything should be canon-compliant, and most should stand on their own without having read the others, with the exception so far of ACJ really needing NGU and ACEiTaS to put some events into perspective.

Other Stories:
Second Best - This story is outside my Complicated Universes series. It's just a little thing that I wrote while I had insomnia and writers block one morning at 3AM a couple of months into writing ACJ. I've always been intrigued by the AU idea of Martha and TenII, and what they'd have to say to each other if they ended up being REALLY honest with each other. This fic just starts to open up that can of worms. It might end up just being a side project, or it might just stay a oneshot. Not sure yet.

BTW even if the name "Aldanon" comes from a male character from another fandom, I am female. I just like the character.
