I started writing DW fiction in 2011. I wasn't new to writing, but I hadn't written anything in many years. I probably should have gone right to work on stuff that I might actually get paid for, but DW fic was a lot of fun and a great way to hone my skills. I'm proud of the stories I've written, have a few more that aren't finished, but my focus has shifted back to my "own" work. If you're interested, you can find me over on the Write On writing community. Poke in "Wolf's Oath," and you'll find me. I'm working on a variety of things, including several novels.

A few possible points of interest about the stories here (please note, I've removed some and am revising them for other markets):

\"Harmony\" began as an exercise in creativity in 2011, a way to break away from many years of having not written much of anything at all. Life had gotten complicated and I\'d lost so much, including part of my identity. That part that was the writer. That part that was, in essence, who I really was. Perhaps that was the lure. The main character in \"Harmony\" fascinated me and his world was rich and, as yet, untapped. After months of mulling it all around, I finally began to write again. After 50 pages of handwritten narrative and notes, I was ready to pull out my laptop. No looking back. No regrets. No matter that it was a closed market. I was determined to make this the best thing I had ever written, I boldly introduced a great deal of original material while preserving and enhancing canon, and I was never, ever, going to stop writing again.

My sincere thanks to The Boys in the Gallifrey Basement, most especially Al Dickerson and Nic Ford, for biscuits and tea and the encouragement to finish what I had started and for painstakingly creating \"Harmony\'s\" host site and putting up with me during its assembly. And for \"my boy,\" Paul, who believed in me even when I didn\'t.

Most of all, though, I want to say thank you to \"Uncle Rusty,\" who may never know, but without whose Tale I might not have taken up my pen to write again--and that would have been very sad indeed. I initially wrote it for myself, but in the end, \"Harmony\" really is for you.

\"Winter\'s Kiss\" ties into \"Harmony,\" taking place about 24 hours before. To answer a question I have gotten a number of times, yes, I am planning to expand it. Rose\'s story needs to be told. For now it stands alone but provides the bones for the first chapter of a second novella about these characters. I hope to finish it in 2013. To answer another question I\'ve gotten a number of times, yes, I may eventually expand \"Harmony.\" At any rate there are a few minor revisions I will be making to keep it canon compliant.

\"Dust\" originally appeared as part of The Companion Chronicles Prose Series on Gallifrey Base. It also appeared in the British Doctor Who fanzine, Inferno Fiction.

\"Fimbulvinter\" (removed) and \"Silencing the Beast\" originally appeared as part of The Companion Chronicles Prose Series II: Epistles of the Enemy. \"Fimbulvinter\" has also appeared in Inferno Fiction. \"Silencing the Beast,\" was a Daily Deviation on Deviant Art.

The Companion Chronicles Prose Series was inspired by the excellent work of Big Finish audios and was edited by the very capable Nic Ford, aka Shinyford on Gallifrey Base. Were it not for Nic and Al Dickerson (to whom I dedicated my surreal tale, \"Farm Song\"), I wouldn\'t still be writing DW fiction. Nor would I be having quite so much fun. Thanks, boys. :)

I've taken "The Forsaken" down and am revising the original content... sorry for not finishing the DW version. I borrowed so much from my own stuff that I wanted to invest the time in a version of the story that I might be able to sell someday. If I ever do finish the wholly DW part of the story, I'll post it. :)

I'm still "on call" for the editor at The Doctor Who Project and hope to offer them my services as a writer in the near future. My short story "Many a Weary Foot" appeared in the Temporal Logbook short story collection which you can order from Lulu.

I don't check in often anymore, but I do appreciate everyone that has read my stories and left me feedback. Thank you! I hope you'll come follow me over on Write On. ^_^

Harmony and Other Stories by thebunnyinthetardis [Reviews - 0]
The Slow Path had never been as agonizing as now. Years had passed since that fateful day when the Doctor had left him with Rose Tyler on a desolate beach in Norway. Years for both of them--and while life had gone on, he was reasonably sure his had not been the fairy tale the Time Lord might have intended it to be. Now, as fate would have it, their paths were once more to cross, leading them on a journey through Time, a journey in Space, and a journey toward Wholeness. A voice he cannot identify calls. A 17th century cannon ball lands in the garden. A blue box he never thought he would see again lands in the forest. And a Time Lord is running out of Time. Features the meta-crisis Doctor and 11th Doctor. W/Rory, Amy, Rose, and others. Series contains the novella, Harmony, and other works relating to it.

Farm Song by thebunnyinthetardis [Reviews - 5]
A mildly angsty, surreal interlude taking place sometime after The Waters of Mars in which the Tenth Doctor takes refuge on a small mid-western American farm where he hopes to lose his memories (and his marbles) before The End of Time forces him to remember everything he thought he could forget--including himself. Along the way to madness, his past selves offer encouragement, hope, companionship for cow tipping, and jelly babies. How many incarnations does it take to set him on the path he must take?
