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

Just an FYI: I am currently working on an original novel and have suspended the bulk of my fanfic writing. I may still post a story or two here, as inspiration hits.
*
Became a fan in the Fourth Doctor/SJS era, then stopped watching when the show went off the air on our local PBS station. I've been writing, editing, and publishing fan-fiction for 20 years now, but only recently branched into Doctor Who fic. I write mostly Sarah Jane Smith, but I also love Barbara Wright, Rose Tyler, Harry Sullivan, the SJS Audiobook Crew, and the SJA crew. Feedback is very much appreciated. I am also available for beta-reading, though I can't Britpick.
