Hello! I have returned.

I love all the Doctor\'s incarnations, though I mostly write for the tenth. I am, for better or for worse, American, so I apologise in advance for any mistakes in that area. Also, I have seen some but not all of Classic Who, so I may miss a few details there.

I love tragedies, geeky jokes, good television, poetry, and the Universe.

I post one-shots and drabbles as the inspiration hits. An inordinate number of them contain liberal amounts of angst and hurt/comfort. I\'m currently working on continuing my Shelter series, but RL has gotten extremely busy so updates will be slow.

I also have an account on fanfiction.net under the name Bookkeeperthe (because it\'s like \"Bookkeeper, the\", see, and . . . yeah) and on ao3 under the same name as here. Most of my non-Doctor Who stuff is Supernatural, but I also dabble in Criminal Minds, the Mentalist, and a few other fandoms.

To all my reviewers: I appreciate all your feedback and encouragement immensely. I apologise if you would prefer individual replies, but that\'s something that I can\'t commit myself to do in a timely manner. I\'ll try to get to them as I find the time, but I can\'t make any promises.

Regarding the Shelter series: I am working on a chaptered EoT fix-it. Progress is slow but now I at least know where it\'s going. As of 7/21/2014 I have nearly all of the first chapter written and a vague outline for the rest. However, I will be taking a week long trip at the end of July and a much longer one at the end of August, and I really have no idea whether I\'ll write faster or slower than usual on my trips.

Crossing your own timeline is bad. Meeting past regenerations is irritating, meeting future regenerations is disquieting, and both are frequently disastrous.
