A Teaspoon And An Open Mind: A Doctor Who Fan Fiction Archive
"A Senseless Trial" by Sigyn [ - ]
Summary: A series of stories desperately trying to make sense of the hurriedly produced, cross purposed, back-tracked and ultimately inconsistent Trial of a Time Lord, and the rather contradictory character of the sixth Doctor. All of these stories can be read out of series, or in any order, though unlike Trial they do hold an internal logic. The only constant throughout is that the Doctor did not blithely stride off with Mel at the end, abandoning Peri to her fate without a second thought.

Facets by Sigyn [Reviews - 25]
Why is the Doctor like this? What has gone wrong with his regeneration that heís terribly rude, more arrogant than God himself, canít settle into any kind of dress sense, and actually wants to hurt his companion? He thinks he needs to take Peri home, and maybe that will make everything better. But maybe Peri holds the key to understanding his new persona. Six/Peri and a viable explanation for That Coat.

Who Is Your Master by Sigyn [Reviews - 10]
The Doctor and Peri are already having difficulties in their inherently tempestuous relationship, and to make matters worse, the Master has set himself to be the worm in the bud, devouring Peri from the inside. Set during The Mark of the Rani. (This story was never finished, but has been abandoned, and doesn't end BADLY or anything.)

In Recess by Sigyn [Reviews - 7]
In the Trial of a Time Lord, between Mindwarp and Terror of the Vervoids, the Doctor goes on recess to gather his defense. But how can he defend himself with the sound of Periís betrayed screams still echoing in his mind? The Doctor has to be given hope again, by the one Time Lord left in the universe who is wholly and completely on his side, and maybe, just maybe, the one who hates him the most. A story that spends most of its time answering unanswered questions posed by Trial of a Time Lord.

State of Mind by Sigyn [Reviews - 5]
ďAlive and well and living as a Queen,Ē may well be a fate worse than death. Periís consciousness was not removed when Kiv was streamed into her mind during the Trial of a Time Lord, Mindwarp. It was suppressed, but suppressed doesnít mean slaughtered. But with her body married to a warrior king and her mind usurped by a corporate slug, how much of Peri is really left? How strong can she really be? And what would tip the scales in her favor? Unfortunately, not the Doctor.
