A Teaspoon And An Open Mind: A Doctor Who Fan Fiction Archive

Technically, I'm still a newbie to "Doctor Who"; my very first encounter with it was when "The Girl in the Fireplace" aired in the US, sometime in mid-October of 2006. I admit I was worried when I watched it at first; I'd heard about the telephone box and the alien thing, and I had vague memories of something about a scarf, but when I saw Rose and Mickey I thought "Oh, hell! He's going to have teenage assistants, and then it'll be all 'gosh, Doctor! Gee whiz!'" I admit, I shuddered at the idea.

Rose and Mickey proved themselves to me within an episode or two. The Doctor, however, had me from "I didn't want to say 'magic door.'"

Currently, I write Ten, Nine, and Four fiction, as those are my favorite Doctors. I ship Ten/Rose and Four/Leela (I'll wait a moment while you stare at me oddly), and even go by the name "Leela" among friends, thanks to my habit of suspecting everybody of trying to pull a fast one on me. The fandom has come over me like a very enjoyable plague; I've sewn a replica of Four's scarf for a friend of mine, and I'm making a Leela costume for future convention usage. I have ambitions of becoming a professional writer, so I use my fanfic as a testing ground for ideas I'm fond of.

In my work, you will find mostly humor, enough action/adventure to glue the plot together, and romance. I am a devotee of the Happy Ending, and I enjoy parodying songs and poking fun at cliches. I've taken a few tentative stabs at heavy drama, but I can't guarantee anything; if you want a heart-rending tale, then you'd best look elsewhere. Here be only Jelly Babies and Little Edible Ball Bearings.

Fantastic Four by Tungsten Monk [Reviews - 41]
Rose has met her universe's Doctor, and she loves his scarf. His wife's not bad either. Together on the edge of space (once every Friday, anyway) they've formed their own little cozy brand of domestic. But when her Doctor comes looking for her, the one she knows now has got a few things to say to him.

In the Teeth of the Evidence by Tungsten Monk [Reviews - 11]
Leela is growing accustomed to life with the Doctor, and even a piano or the Mona Lisa can't stop her. But when the TARDIS crash-lands in ancient Rome and the Doctor is in a coma, can she and K-9 find the things they need to repair the time ship? And who is that annoying man with the very bad language? Eventual Four/Leela, Leela POV, eventual crossover.

Life of DD by Tungsten Monk [Reviews - 4]

NaNoWriRo by Tungsten Monk [Reviews - 10]
Rose is participating in National Novel-Writing Month, and of course she's using her greatest adventure for inspiration. The Doctor is confused, not to mention a little put out, and by Rassilon he'll get her attention back somehow.

The Fireplace is Empty by Tungsten Monk [Reviews - 11]
Post GitF fix-it fic, Ten/Rose. He had to go through the mirror, and it wasn't just for Madame de Pompadour. No Reinette bashing, some angst, happy ending and smoochies.

The Hunting of the Snack by Tungsten Monk [Reviews - 6]
Tasty food is disappearing left and right. Is it simply the Doctor and his compulsive nibbling or is something more sinister loose in the TARDIS? Crackfic humor.
