I have written fic for several other fandoms (particularly The Lord of the Rings). I particularly love stories (from books, television shows or elsewhere) that challenge us to think and wonder, and encourage us to try to be better people. Doctor Who is a story, a show, that embodies all that for me.

Trials and Discoveries by Gentlehobbit [Reviews - 0]
There are two things that the Meta-crisis Doctor and Rose both crave: adventure and each other--and not necessarily in that order. However, returning to their home universe carries with it lasting consequences that both test them and help them discover what they mean to each other. These stories follow their development as partners through drama, mystery and, yes, even romance (which the Doctor is rubbish at. Nevertheless, even he can learn as will be explored in a future story.)
