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

I've been a fan of Doctor Who for years. My favorite ship of the new series is the 12th Doctor/Clara. My two favorite ships of the classic series are the 4th Doctor/Sarah Jane and the 7th Doctor/Ace.

*In my stories, there are a few Star Trek references. I was a fan of Star Trek long before I even knew about Doctor Who.

(My stories are also posted on fanfiction.net. My author name on that site is HollyFire.)

Changing Perceptions by Holly Ann [Reviews - 12]
The leader of the village looked back and forth between the Doctor and Ace curiously. "Is this woman your mate?" he asked the Doctor. Ace, without stopping to think that maybe the word 'mate' might not mean the same thing as 'friend' in this culture, said, "Of course I'm his mate." Oh, dear, thought the Doctor, this should be interesting.

Instinct (Sequel to 'Simply Stated') by Holly Ann [Reviews - 20]
Sarah cannot remember all that transpired on their last adventure on the planet Rashua. Though the Doctor had told her basically what had happened, there were a few things that he had left out on purpose.

Simply Stated by Holly Ann [Reviews - 6]
The Doctor had claimed that the reason he chose this type of location was because of the beautiful scenery and crisp, cool mountain air, but Sarah knew the real reason.
