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

Penname:Lightfinger (David West)
Member Since:2006.05.02

I was inspired by the creation of the new series, and its first appearance on American TV. However, the origins of my love of the Doctor started way before it came back on television.

I am 44 years old, and grew up during the eras of the third, fourth, and fifth Doctors, which I watched on Iowa Public Television. For a real job, I am a web systems administrator for Douglas County, Nebraska and City of Omaha.

Besides Doctor Who, my hobbies include wasting a lot of time with role playing and computer MMOs. I have accounts with Champions Online, Star Trek Online and World of Warcraft, though I\'ve played everything from Ultima Online to Everquest 2. I\'ve also co-written two books that have been published by Hero Games, so I am not unfamiliar with writing.

My favorite character is the Master, which will be obvious by my stories. My favorite companion has always been Nyssa, though Sarah Jane comes in a close second.
