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

Just a Whovian. My first episode was a rerun of The Caves of Androzani when I was just a kid, must've been '99 or something (though I didn't recall seeing it until recently). When the "regenerated" series hit the air, David Tennant hooked me and I promptly got swept away into the Whoniverse.

My favorite Doctor is a question that's open for debate, but I'm quite fond of 10, 4, 5 and 3 (not necessarily in that order, because Pertwee and Tennant are locked in an Epic Battle To The Death for the top slot). I also have a soft spot for 11, as I see him as a weird jumbled-up combination of a bit of 2 and a lot of 4 (with much less interesting taste in neckwear).

My favorite companion is easily Ace (but only because I don't count Romana as a COMPANION- she's the Doctor's equal, not his sidekick), closely trailed by Donna, Nyssa, and Liz.

While we're on the subject of Romana... I love her. She is an absolutely incredible individual and my all-time favorite Doctor Who character, surpassing even the Doctor himself.
I also kind of hero-worship Ace. There is a REASON she inspired the Crowning Moment of Awesome trope, people.

I am a compulsive shipper of Doctor/Romana (any regeneration of either). Made for each other. Period.
