Hello! Welcome to my bio! My name is Nelly, though my pen name is obviously Romana Dante, I am neither a highly sophisticated Time Lady, nor am I a famous 14th century poet, so please, if you ever bump into me on here, on the street, or anywhere, don't hesitate to call me by my real name.

Let's see, what can I say about myself? I'm not particuarly interesting...I'm into acting, I can ice skate, I recently learned to waltz...that's not particuarly interesting, is it?

I've been a Doctor Who fan since before I can remember, and my favourites are Tom Baker, Peter Davidson, and David Tennant.

I usually write sort of dark, scary stories, but I have been known to write the occasional happy one...sort of. I also have insomnia, so most of my stories are written in the middle of the night when everyone else around is sleeping. Might explain the whole dark and scary thing...but I'm not sure.

I usually write for Ten. Don't like Ten, don't read my stories. Sorry about that, but I find Ten the most interesting to play with character-wise (not otherwise, thought it is David Tennant...) I'm very big on character study, Ten has always struck me as the most interesting.

I hope you enjoy my stories, now that I've probably broken the record for longest profile bio ever! I love reviews, and I almost always love to reply to them! Enjoy!
