I'm an old hat at fan fiction (though not necessarily a GOOD hat), starting from Star Wars and bouncing around any number of fandoms since. I'm also very, very new to Doctor Who; I decided randomly not long ago to watch the first episode of the new series and I absolutely fell in love with Christopher Eccleston as the Doctor. I have spent the intervening time learning as much about the universe as I can.

Though I love Ten now as well, Nine is absolutely my Doctor and, being a hopeless romantic, I have become a desperate Nine/Rose shipper.

Though my stories are still updated here, they're usually updated FIRST at my LJ (corufic). Feel free to friend me, and since I love to discuss my geekery (and spend ridiculous amounts of time online), feel free to IM me too :)
