I'm a 22-year-old who happens to have a huge fondness for Doctor Who. I'm a New Who convert who's slowly making her way through Old School. I'm a devout worshiper at the altar of Noble, and Ten is so very much "my" Doctor.

I'm currently working my way through the first draft of an epic follow up to "Autumn Days" - offers of beta reading would be highly appreciated! It's slow going, but I'll get there eventually.

I'm also working on another large fic that was originally for the TARDIS Big Bang ficathon, focusing on AltTen, Rose, and Donna in Pete's World. Betas for this fic are also highly appreciated. Unfortunately, it is also v. slow going, so I have no idea when it would be put up.

I always enjoy constructive criticism, but I can't stand flames - if you can't be polite in your dislike, I don't have time for you idiocy. Just being up-front about that.

Timelines by sparrow [Reviews - 0]
An alternate universe, briefly (and rather unimportantly, in the scheme of things) crossed over with the musical RENT. Romana, President of Gallifrey, following the will of the Council, regenerated, was disguised as a human, and was hidden on Earth. To keep her safe during the Time War, you see. And then, during a stint in New York City, the Ninth Doctor found her.

Rose has been living in the alternate universe, working for Torchwood, trying to just have a life after the Doctor.
