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

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.

"River Saga" by Sigyn [Reviews - 0]
Stories about River Song. "Chronological order" is an oxymoron with River, but I've done my best. They don't need to be read in this order, but they make sense in it. River as River or River as Melody; River when we know who she is and when we have no idea; River driving the Doctor crazy or being driven crazy herself: this is the life of River Song.

Companionable and Confused by honestgreenpirate [Reviews - 0]
Ella Marlowe is the Doctor's companion. She met him before he picked up Donna for the second time and since then she's done it all - been there and back again having bought the t-shirt along the way. This is a series of stories about her time in the TARDIS - the trials and tribulations, the heartache and the happiness. It's wonderful but it's terrible.

Soul Healer by Sarfitb [Reviews - 2]
Angela meets a strange man called the Doctor, only for him to whisk her off on the adventure of a lifetime. Please Note: This series has been written with the tenth Doctor in mind and it takes place between the series four episode "Journey's End" and the special "The Next Doctor". The essentials of this series have been planned out before I viewed "End of Time" or any of the eleventh Doctor episodes, so any resemblance to certain wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey elements that show up after that point are purely circumstantial.

Viera by Caligo Origuu [Reviews - 0]
No being is unimportant. No life is too small, too insignificant to change the course of everything. One extra passenger boards the shuttle on Midnight and new fates are set in motion. Sometimes in small ways, some times in big ways, this companion like all the others, has the potential to change the Doctor's life as much as he changes hers.

Broken Faith by Marcus S Lazarus [Reviews - 62]
[AU "The Sound of Drums"/"Last of the Time Lords"] When the Master's plans for the Doctor and Earth take on a chillingly personal element, Martha Jones finds herself fighting not only to tell the world about the Doctor, but to restore the Doctor's faith in what he has always believed in, as the Doctor comes to terms with the truth about his feelings for his companions. (Ten/Martha, one-sided Ten/Rose, sort-of Master/Rose)
