Author has written 32 stories for Star Wars, Doctor Who, Torchwood, Marvel, Spider-Man, Avengers, and Fantastic Four.
Hey, my name is James and I come from the 'sunny' (in inverted commas) shores of the United Kingdom, and I'm a former Post Graduate student living at home searching for work, primarily in the Heritage Sector. My primary interests are History, reading, computers, Paintballing, TV and music.
I enjoy writing stuff for the Whoniverse (Doctor Who, Torchwood and Sarah Jane Adventures), Star Wars, Marvel Comics (I swear that I come up with so many 'What Ifs' for Marvel, that if Utau needs a vacation I'd be glad to take over for the week), DC Comics, Dragonball and occasionally original fiction. Anyway I love reviews of any of my stories, so if you want to please do so, it always helps to know what I'm doing right and what I can improve on.
Favourite Pairings (Updated!)
Doctor Who: I am firmly of the opinion that each Doctor has his own respected Pairing and personality, and that across the years certain female companions might have suited him as a love interest if needed. The ones which immediately strike me as logical are probably Three/Liz, Three/Jo, Four/Sarah, Four/Romana II (I find her second incarnation to suit him more than the first), Five/Nyssa, Five/Tegan, Five/Peri (Six/Peri isn't quite as belivable as a pairing - they're a great companion set though), Six/Evelyn, Eight/Grace, Eight/Charley, Nine/Rose, Ten/Rose (to a lesser extent, the Doctor was right a to what he said in Journey's End, Rose suits the battle scarred Doctor better, no matter what several zillion fangirls think to me) and Ten/Martha (Yeah, I said Ten/Martha. A lot of Rose Fans seem to hate her which is incredibly harsh as she's such a great companion for the Tenth Doctor and can be ok as a pairing to me). There's also a couple of one-shot characters like Astrid, Renette, Christina and Joan Redfern which make for nice if bitter sweet interests for the Tenth Doctor.
As far as companion/companion pairings are concerned I like Ian/Barbara, Ben/Polly, Jamie/Victoria, Liz/Brigadier, Hex/Ace and Rose/Mickey. To be honest it occurs to me that there's not many occasions where the Doctor has both a male and female companion in the TARDIS anyway.
Update: In the Eleventh Doctor Era which has become full flow since I last updated this I utterly adore fics with Amy/Rory or Doctor/Idris as the focus. Clara is a interesting companion but I wouldn't say I ship her and Eleven, nor he and River Song. Vastra and Jenny are a great duo and I really hope they get their own show someday!
Torchwood: Pretty much most of the ones the show has made or at least hinted at; Jack/Ianto, Jack/John, Jack/Jack, Ianto/Lisa, Tosh/Owen, Tosh/Tommy, Owen/Diane and Gwen/Rhys. Personally if I had to pick my favs I'd go for Owen/Tosh and Gwen/Rhys - Owen/Gwen as shown never really worked well, and I've got a soft spot for Rhys and cheered when the show actually let him know about Gwen's job. Owen/Tosh is probably my favourite set, and like most I was gutted to see them go but felt they at least got a cracking sendoff. Jack/Ianto is ok - I'm not Gay and am never fond of slash fics but as the show has it established I'm ok with it, though like writer Marcus.S.Lazarus states in his own pairings, I felt the relationship seemed to occur a little too quickly, kind of like Owen/Gwen to an extent really. It felt better written in Series 2 and Children of Earth though.
And also, thought it barely happened in the series, I would love to see more Jack/Tosh fics. They're my two favourite team members and I like to see some of that in fanfiction. Gwen/Jack is quait, but it was always the flirting sort of thing that Jack tends to do, though I do like the relationship these two have, I have mostly preferred Jack/Ianto and Gwen/Rhys as the ways things are right now.
Update: Not much to say about Miracle Day, it was very meh. Glad to see Gwen and Rhys still firmly together though. Really miss the old days in any case.
Star Wars: Ah, the classics. Han/Leia, Anakin/Padme, Luke/Mara. Anakin/Ahsoka always make me sudder if I ever see it. She's his apprentice, people.
Marvel: Spider-Man/MJ is probably my favourite couple in the Marvel Universe, no matter what a certain Editor-In-Chief thinks. Gwen Stacy and Black Cat are interesting but don't come close to our delightful readhead Mary Jane, who's sheer history with Peter gives her the top spot. Ugh, stupid Marvel writers have really ruined such a lovely pairing thanks to OMD and a deal with the Devil haven't they?
Outside Spidey, I like Jean/Scott (Scott/Emma is alright but I'd trust Jean a million years more anyday than Miss Ex-Hellffire Club and current Evil Illuminati Member), Kitty Pryde/Pitor (Colossus), Gambit/Rogue, T-Challa (Black Panther)/Storm, Reed/Susan, Ben Grim (Thing)/Alica Masters, Captain America II (Bucky Banes)/Black Widow I (Nastasha), Jessica Jones/Luke Cage, Dr Strange/Clea, Captain America I (Steve Rogers)/Sharon Carter, Hawkeye (Clint Baton)/Mockingbird, Hulk/Caiera the Oldstrong and the odd other one which escapes me. Hey, there are zillions of characters in Marvrel and I can't be expected to recall them all at the drop of a hat. They're my main favourites, in any case.
