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

American, I kept pushing and pushing and finally 60 fell over. . Been a Who fan since the 70s. Am continuously and endlessly fascinated by the way the Doctor keeps changing and staying the same.

I started writing fanfic when I was about 12 (roughly the middle of the 14th century). I quit doing it after I had kids, but now I'm back, inspired by the lovely boys and girls of Torchwood and Doctor Who and their brilliant creators, who are fantastic, every single one of them.

Had no idea at all how many people enjoy doing this. Wasn't as much of a weirdo as I thought.

A Long Way Home by Otrame [Reviews - 0]
We know Jack arrived back on Earth from the Game Station in 1869. The next thing we know about him is that he was killed in a fight on Ellis Island in 1892. What happened during the 23 years between those two dates? Where did Jack actually arrive on Earth? This series includes stories from those times.

A Thousand Nights and a Night by Otrame [Reviews - 0]
A series of relatively short, often explicit tales of love. Mostly Jack/Ianto, but guest appearances should not be too surprising. Mostly PWP, but perhaps not all.

As I Lay Dying by Otrame [Reviews - 0]
All over the world hell reigned supreme for a year. Just because the year never happened didn't mean it didn't happen. In a way. This is is a series of crossover stories exploring how various people from that other reality (the one we call TV) dealt with that year.

There Ain't No Cure for Love by Otrame [Reviews - 0]
A series of stories containing missing scenes and such that weren’t in the Canon but I think should have been, in the same vein as Gilding the Lily., this time dealing with Torchwood S2.

Gilding the Lily: a Few Missing Scenes from S1 by Otrame [Reviews - 116]
My idea of a few scenes missing from the Canon, mostly details about the relationship between Jack and Ianto. Some chapters have explicit sex and are for adults only, but the rest are PG-13 at the worst.

Repairs in Route by Otrame [Reviews - 171]
So, it was all over and they had won. The year of hell had never happened. The Master was dead. The Doctor and his companions could go on, have more adventures, saving the Universe, or maybe just the Earth, a few more times. Everything was as it should be. Well, not quite. In fact, not at all.

The Stranger by Otrame [Reviews - 16]
It should have been simple enough: roughly 160 thousand kilometers, roughly 198 thousand years. But Jack is most definitely NOT near the Rift in Cardiff in the 21st century and now his vortex manipulator is no longer functioning. This is the story of Jack's first few weeks on Earth after escaping from the Game Station. Part of the series A Long Way Home.

What happened to my life? by Otrame [Reviews - 198]
Ianto Jones is an ordinary guy. Maybe a little on the geeky side. Works for a big insurance company. Married, first baby on the way. So, why won’t his kidnappers believe him when he tells them that he has never, ever heard the word Torchwood before?
