|To say that I am a sci-fi/fantasy junkie is an understatement. I was raised on Star Trek and Star Wars before branching out to find out what else was out there.|
The reason why I write is that it is an outlet for me. It allows me to express my feelings as well as allow my imagination to expand and take form. My life is very stressful and I suffer from depression; so have a conduit that allows me to let those feelings out. And it has done a world of good for me.
My current love is Doctor Who. I love history and being able to go back and visit events is something extraordinary to me. It let me escape from this life and imagine a world that helps me find myself. That I can make a difference.
And this is the reason why I write original characters. It allows me to write someone who can actually go through this experience. Yes, one may call it a self-insert. But isn't all canon characters self-inserts in the end? The key is to make them as independent as possible without completely binding them to you.
My OTPs consist of: Doctor/OFC (Time Lady), Doctor/OFC (depending), Doctor/Romana, Jack/River, and Ian/Barbara.
I have been seeing a lot of hate going around about Steven Moffat's era of Doctor Who. Though I do admit that I am not fond of RTD's era, I do not completely bash it. Yes, not everyone is going to like how a certain Doctor is going. But the Doctor is technically immortal, so the writing for the show is going to change as the Doctor changes. If you stopped watching it because you don't like how Moffat writes, then that is your right...though I will call you an idiot. Change is a good thing - some may not like it, but one cannot stop it.
