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

Just another university student trying to make my way in the world.

I first learned about the Doctor when I watched Chris and Billie run out of a shop basement when I was 14. Without knowing anything of Classic Who I instantly fell in love. I must admit that when lovely David (Ten)nant first graced the screen, I was quite mistrustful. They say you never forget your first Doctor; cheers Eccs. Thankfully my feelings changed, and I expect the same thing to happen with Matt gracing the small screen.

Anyway, here is a small offering of stories born out of thinking too much about literature and science fiction at the same time instead of about schoolwork. Please enjoy.

I also have an account at FanFiction.net under the penname of RavenWriter89.

Bliss by DameRuth [Reviews - 12]
AU Rose/Jack/Nine OT3 -- completely non-compatible with both the Findersverse, and the "Three Amigos" series. Starts angst-y, gets lighter as it goes . . . Much fluff, romance, and happy endings.

Flowers by DameRuth [Reviews - 5]
Love is a strange thing, and can cross a surprising number of barriers: physical, chemical, temporal and mental. If dark!fluff exists, I guess this would be in that genre -- broken glass and candy floss mixed together, as one of the characters thinks. AU, mostly Rose/Jack, Jack/Ianto and Jack/Ten, though not exclusively.
Multi-Era - - None - None

Legacy by Poetry [Reviews - 0]

A Far, Far Better Thing by wmr [Reviews - 24]

Take the Left by Anonymous_cat [Reviews - 160]
There were two levers in the Ghost Shift Room: one on the left, the other on the right. The Doctor took the lever on the left. Years later, a Fortune Teller on Shan Shen gives him the opportunity to choose again. Consequences? You bet.

The Beginning After The End by sparrowmarrow [Reviews - 4]
He has discovered that memories (death, loss) make people into abstractions. Blocks of faded colour and raspy sound take the place of warm reality, hot intakes of breath, tiny wrinkles framing mouths and noses, shells of ears, freckled arms, torn fingernails, soft exhalations, split ends. Yes, memories fade, become replaced with dim slow moving shapes that stir sluggishly from time to time in the corners of his brain, but there are some things that he remembers perfectly.
