ErtheChilde is a hobby writer and high school history teacher based in Quebec, Canada. An avid reader since childhood, she discovered fanfiction in the summer of 2001 and started writing under the pseudonym KuriQuinn in January 2002. Since then, she has penned several works (most of which are incomplete due to her pursuit of post-secondary studies in Classics, History and Education). She is currently working on her first novel, an urban fantasy, when she isn’t being distracted by her favorite Science Fiction and Fantasy Series. Which happens pretty much on a daily basis lately.

The Shortest Life by ErtheChilde [Reviews - 0]
The Doctor never intended to survive the loss of his people or his planet. Likewise, he never intended Rose Tyler to be more than just a temporary companion. However, as always, Time’s plans are a little different from his own. Despite the instant connection he and Rose share, the first days of their friendship are heavily marred by the shadows of the Time War. As the Doctor struggles to heal his damaged psyche, he must decide whether it’s possible to go back to who he used to be – and if he even wants to. Meanwhile, Rose faces her own challenges in adapting to a universe that is just a little bit more complex than she could ever have imagined. Over time, their friendship begins to blossom into something more, and the foundations are laid for “the stuff of legends”.
