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

Hi there. Thanks for stopping by. :-)

One of my favorite things about Doctor Who is all of the rich, amazing connections between the characters, and I love exploring those. Most of my fics could potentially be missing scenes, and fit into the canon without disrupting time lines too much. When I say \"canon\" I\'m including Classic Who, the current series, Torchwood, and Big Finish... because it\'s a big, awesome, gorgeous fandom out there and I don\'t believe in restricting myself to just a few seasons.

I have an account over on ff.net, but as I\'ve been writing almost exclusively for Doctor Who these days, it made sense for me to set up shop over here, where there are a few more Classic Who fans around, to appreciate my more esoteric stories.

I\'d love to hear from folks, via message or review. It\'s always fabulous to meet people who are as into Doctor Who as I am!

You can find me on Tumblr as OrchisAilsa, as well.

Using the dimension cannon, Rose has finally made it back from Pete's World, but she has still not quite reached her destination.

Intermezzo by OrchisAilsa [Reviews - 1]
An 8/Charley "missing scene" story which begins between Scherzo and The Creed of the Kromon. Newly arrived in a foreign universe, the Doctor and Charley work through the emotional fallout of their recent experiences. Drawn to each other as much as they are lost together, they explore the chemistry between them, which is both exciting and comforting in this uncertain alien world.
