Thanks to my inattentiveness while filling in forms, I am now stuck with a typo in my username. The shame, it burns.

I'm a 30-something living the international life of academic vagrancy. I've written off and on over the years, in a multitude of fandoms. I started writing Star Trek as a kid, but it spread from there.

I watched Doctor Who when I was young, and had mad little-girl crushes on both the third and seventh Doctors. I discovered the rebooted series, and the tenth Doctor rapidly wormed his way into my heart, inspiring me to write once again.

I have a soft spot for the Jack/Doctor pairing, but I love just about anything with a good story.

Blurring the Line by idelthoughts [Reviews - 33]

Public Enemy Number One by idelthoughts [Reviews - 35]

Friends with benefits don't spend the night. Do they? Then again, they're not supposed to get jealous or fall in love, either. Still, that doesn't seem to be stopping anybody.
