Update: I'm only posting on AO3 now. If you want the latest from me, check there. Same name!

I suppose I should put some sort of Bio on here. So here it goes. I am a Whovian, but like to stick to writing about 9 and ten. I thoroughly enjoy watching 11 and 12 though. My favorite OTP is Rose and 9 or ten. Maybe some day I'll write another relationship but, let's face it, I am a creature of habit.

I have no idea where my ideas come from, they just pop in, rattle around and sometimes the come out in the form of a fic.

Cold Comfort by arjasmo [Reviews - 19]
They were a good team; a team that seemed to be dancing closer by the day. When they land to observe the “flash spring” on Xalta 5 it seems like closeness, and perhaps more, is inevitable. But then comes the rumble and then the thunder of an avalanche and then nothing. Now Rose is alone and the Doctor is very ill. They are in a frozen foreign land with no resources and yet plenty of natural predators. Can she save him? Better yet, can she survive herself? And why did he keep mentioning “snuggling”?

True Colors by arjasmo [Reviews - 51]
In the three weeks Rose Tyler had known John Smith, she had learned one thing: she hated him. He was pompous, arrogant, condescending, and occasionally downright mean. He was her employer and it took everything she could do on a daily basis not to quit and run away. But she couldn’t, she had to protect him. He was her Doctor and she had to keep him from being found by the Family. Three months, it was only for three months. She repeated that mantra to herself daily. But that was also three months that she had to keep from strangling him, and each day that was getting harder and harder.

What the Heart Wants by arjasmo [Reviews - 21]
Sometimes people go through their lives thinking they are getting what they need, until someone comes along and changes it all. Lines are crossed, stereotypes are broken, and two people who normally would have never connected do just that. The consequences of drawing together a seemingly common sorority girl and a graduate student are bigger than either of them ever would have guessed. The fallout is even greater.
