I am continually aging. I love reading, writing, dancing, animals of pretty much every kind and good movies. History and art are my favorite school subjects. I have two cats named Spook and Alfie. I enjoy alone time, hate talking on the phone, and am annoyed by stupid people. I hate it when critics tell us not to go see a movie or read a book or go to a concert just because *they* happened to not like it. I am contrary and enjoy doing things that are the complete opposite of what people tell me to do. And I talk back... a lot. Admittedly, something not to be proud of, but well... I am! ... I'm a bit bloodthirsty.

Getting to know me! Getting to know aaaaaaaaaaall aboooooooooout me!


  • Your current OTP Doctor/Rose will always be my current OTP.

  • A pairing you initially didn’t consider but someone changed your mind Loki/Thor – I ran into some fic, don’t know who by but it was hot

  • A pairing you have never liked and probably never will Doctor/Anyone Other Than Rose, Angel/Cordelia, Buffy/Spike

  • A pairing you wish you liked but just can’t Doctor/River – then at least I could watch series 5 and after instead of avoiding DW like the plague

  • Have you added anything stupid/cracky/hilarious to your fandom, if so, what When I was into Glee, I started but never finished a crack fic entitled The One Where Blaine Does His Super Awesome Hot Dog Impression, Or: Wherein Blaine is Extremely Awkward but Kurt’s Totally Into It

  • What’s the longest you’ve ever been in a fandom 4 years

  • Do you remember your first OTP, if so who was in it Buffy/Angel

  • Do you prefer characters from real action series or anime series Real action – anime is just silly to me

  • Has the internet caused you to stop liking any fandoms, if so, which and why Star Trek for a while because they attack you (true story: called me racist and a woman-hater and I happen to be a very open minded *woman*) when you actually give constructive criticism on a story and some of it has to do with how the story turned Uhura into a Mary Sue who could do no wrong, even when she bad-mouthed her own captain to the entire universe which was the catalyst for almost inciting a galactic war and yet Captain Kirk doesn’t even reprimand her because according to the authors, his womanizing ways and the way he hit on Uhura during Academy “totally meant he deserved what she did.” Also, getting attacked for pointing out that StarFleet is in fact a military organization, even if a peaceful one, and as such, there are rules in place that include insubordination – which Uhura neatly sidestepped in that fic… /rant. Sorry, still incredibly sore.

  • Name a fandom you didn’t care/think about until you saw it all over tumblr/LJ/DW Sylar/Claire from Heroes

  • How do you feel about the other people in your current fandom The DW fandom is pretty awesome – I don’t know anything about any wank as I don’t tumble, really.

  • Your favorite fanartist/author gives you one request, what do you ask for Rose happens to meet all the Doctors (but doesn’t imply that she’s his wife like River does, just that they’re close) and she happens to be – for some reason – wearing Four’s trench as a dress that she made completely stylish by wrapping Four’s scarf as a belt and wears Four’s hat (idk, it’s just a kink!). The Doctor from 1 to 12 falls in love with her without a causal loop, but just because and also – they all want to see her wearing something of theirs.

  • Your favorite fanart or fan artist Don’t really pay attention to fanart

  • Your favorite fanfiction or fan author Anyone who denounces GitF as canon

  • Choose a song at random, which OTP does it remind you of I shuffled my iPod and Owl City’s Galaxies popped up. Even though it seems to be about God, the rest of the lyrics remind me of the Doctor and Rose, obv.

  • Invent a random AU for any fandom (we always need more ideas) Rose is swept through time either through a crack or random time storm to the future, does something that saves a planet or village but which ultimately kills another race – which happen to be non-sentient parasites that add nothing to society (though she tried not to kill them) – and is tried by the Shadow Proclamation, then imprisoned in Stormcage for genocide. She meets River, they become fast friends and through River, Rose meets the Doctor. Doctor/Rose fall in love and Rose is a bamf (even bamfier than usual of course) immortal Bad Wolf… yes, I’ve thought about this.

  • A ship you’ve abandoned and why I don’t really abandon any of my ships – I may stop writing/reading fanfic, but they will always be in my heart. And there are those that I come back to after a break. When I fall for a couple, they will always be my couple because when I ship, I ship hard and forever.

  • A pairing you ship that you don’t think anyone else ships Captain Jack Harkness/Jake Simmonds

  • Show us an example of your personal headcanon


  1. The Doctor loved Rose by the end of Rose.

  2. The Doctor only told Martha superficial stuff about his planet and not what really mattered – that was all Rose’s.

  3. While the Doctor adored Donna and Amy, Rose was/is/and always shall be his best friend.

  4. The Doctor only finds River’s gun-wielding attractive because he doesn’t want the psychopath to shoot him.

  5. The Doctor cares for River but does not love her romantically and only indulges her because he’s afraid the denial of her obsession will break her.

  6. River cares for the Doctor but does not love him romantically as she’s realized it’s not a healthy relationship to be in and has moved on with Captain Jack.

  7. The Doctor never ate chips with anyone again after he lost Rose – both times.

  8. When the Doctor was living the life not-quite-fantastic with Craig, he was imagining that Rose was his flat/bedmate.

  9. Others to be announced as I remember them.


  • Do you remember what your first fanwork was? Something in Harry Potter.

  • Self-rec: What's your favorite fanwork you've created? I absolutely adore They Were A Peach and Hello, Stranger. My favorite works by far.

  • Are you one of those fans who can’t watch anything without shipping Yes. I have to have at least a little romance. Emotion is the basis of life and what connects us to each other. Even if it's just shipping a bro- or chick-mance, you gotta have some sort of emotion. Without it, the story’s just not worth the telling. It's why I can never read books on mythology - they're so dry and lacking in feelings, even in the telling of the story.

  • 5 favorite characters from 5 different fandoms Doctor Who – Rose Tyler, Vampire Diaries – Damon, Syfy’s Alice – Hatter, Heroes – Gabriel Gray/Sylar, The Borgias - Cesare

  • 3 OTPs from 3 different fandoms Vampire Diaries – Damon/Elena, The Borgias – Cesare/Lucrezia, Avengers – Thor/Loki

  • A fandom you’re in but have no ships from I always ship someone if I’m in fandom. If I don’t ship, then I may be a fan of the show but I’m just not that into it and thus, not in fandom.

  • Just ramble about something fan-related, go go go I can’t understand why people ship the Doctor and River. I just can’t. To each their own, I know, but to me, that relationship is just unhealthy and River’s obsession with the Doctor is just that – an obsession gained from books and being raised to kill. She’s mentally unstable and she could be awesome without the romance element to her. One can’t just heal from psychopathy and usually, meds are needed at all times to keep them stable. If Moffat was going for the ‘she’s a Time Lady and therefore can snap out of the induced craziness and have a healthy relationship with the man she was trained to kill all her life’ thing, well – the Master anyone? Totally hijacks that theory.
