Welcome to the Lyonn's den! I leave the door open for you to become trapped in my thoughts.

My penname literally translates to "To the Stars", which is where we have been led by the Doctor.
I began watching Doctor Who from basically the day I was born (which, compared to how long the show has been on, was not that long ago). Now I am a first year second year (!) University student with nothing better to do than partystudy, write, and watch Doctor Who. Enjoy! (or don't, its really not my place to tell you what to do)

I'm a tried, true, red, white, and blue American (currently abroad in the UK). I am also a world traveling Military Brat, but please excuse me if I don't exactly get the lingo right at first (ex: chips are to french fries). Feel free to correct-a-mundo!

"Te audire non possum. Musa sapientum fixa est in aure" - I can't hear you, I have a banana in my ear.

Started watching Torchwood in 2011. My obsession is clearly evident below.
