Author has written 33 stories for StarTrek: The Next Generation, Doctor Who, Sherlock, and Broadchurch.
My current icon picture, in case you don't recognize it, is a screen cap of Matt Smith's hip bone with his pink underpants just peeking up over his jeans. All of the area that's pictured needs to be licked.
Epistolary is kicking my ass...but in a good way. I think I'll be an expert on WWII by the time this is over. Since some of you have been asking, my goal, my ambitious goal is to actually cover the full 50 years. Now that's going to take awhile and I'm not even sure it can be done, but that's my target, all the way up until Amy dies.
Stories currently in the works:
The Last Frost Fair - A little short about River's birthday with the Doctor before "A Good Man Goes To War".
Off To See The Groundhog? - This is a loooooong way off. In fact I can't imagine getting to it before I finish Epistolary but I'd like to write the fic that Chris Hardwick was talking about at Comic Con. Basically the Doctor lands in Punxsatawney and has to figure out why Phil the weather man keeps repeating his day.
Man About The House - Well, you guys talked me into it. It's the sequel to Come And Knock On Our Door and I'm having a ball writing it.
Who the hell am I: My name is Maribor, I'm Captain Picard's daughter, I play a mean Ressikan flute and I've been writing fan fiction since God was a boy. Star Trek TNG was my first love but I have stories I've written for Buffy, Angel, Xena, Hercules, WWE (nee WWF), Babylon 5, Doctor Who, X-Men and I'm probably leaving a few out. At the moment I'm a full blown Whovian and that's kind of all I'm focusing on now. Blame Matt Smith.
I could have just summed up this this whole paragraph with the word 'Nerd' couldn't I?
Fandom: At the moment almost exclusively Doctor Who. The Trek story (which don't get me wrong I absolutely love) is on indefinite hiatus. I lost the narrative thread on that one...I hope to find it again someday. Sometimes it happens, stories slip out of your hands.
Ratings/Genre I write angst but mostly I'm smutty, even my angst can be a bit on the erotic side. Slashy, Het-y, Lemony, You Must Be This Mature To Ride This Ride...so fair warning, heads up and no complainers.
What I ship: Eleven and Amy, Eleven and Rory and a lot of the time all three of them together. Most of my stuff is going to be M or (NC17 if you like) or failing that really, really angsty.
Wherein the author gets on her Doctor Who Polyamory soapbox (specifically regarding Epistolary):
I tend to ship them (Eleven/Amy/Rory) poly-amorous. I will maintain to my dying day they were written as a soft threesome for network TV. In some bizzaro world where Doctor Who is on cable, they're acknowledged as all three being together. It's not so much what was shown, it's the spaces around what wasn't shown. It's the unwritten. I'm saying it would have happened and I'm also saying that Amy chose both of them until TATM, that was really Amy's choice.
Go back and re-watch "Amy's Choice". Watch everything the Dream Lord, who is of course the darker 11 hints about, Amy's dreams, his love of redheads, "better sort your men out" and 11 even asks Rory "are we disagreeing or competing?" So he's been looking in on her dreams, lusting after her, she's his type aesthetically, he considers himself 'one of her men' and he refers to Rory as a "gooseberry" which is an unwanted extra. Amy always gets what she wants, sure it would take time and convincing but eventually ta-da, threesome. Seriously...it's math or as the Brits say "maths".
But you can also assume it's a completely platonic relationship but it's still deeper than friendship. Even if you take out the sex, they're still a threesome. Polyamory isn't dependent on sex, it's just my preference for the story/stories
Or take the word of this blogger on dilettantiquity dot com who said it much better than me.
"But I am saying that the relationship between the members of the little family on the TARDIS has, over the past couple of seasons, often looked a hell of a lot like a poly family to me. A real, stumbling-along, first-time poly family with wibbles and insecurities and doubts and a fear that it may just be too hard, but also the structure and core of a deeply loving intimacy between more than two people. (And before anyone comments to point out that the Doctor and Amy aren’t – at least on screen – having a good, heteronormative shag…just don’t. Don’t tell me that sex is the defining factor that magically creates a ‘relationship’. Don’t assume it works that way for anyone other than you.)"
Ok. Here endeth the lesson. *Puts away soapbox*
I'm hoping to get around to penning some Eleven/Martha stuff but we'll see.
I'm cool with 9, I love 10 but don't think I could convincingly write his voice. But 11. Now 11 is my Doctor. He's the one that brought me to the dance that is Doctor Who and as the saying goes, "You dance with the one that brung ya." I also really like 2. I'm starting to watch the classic episodes and he's the one I'm focusing on at the moment.
What I Can't Manage:
1) I can't seem to write convincing fluff with the Doctor enjoying being surrounded by puppies and baby chicks or braiding Amy's hair, but I dig those who can do it. I like a happy Doctor story every now and then.
2) I can't write the Doctor as asexual. It just doesn't seem true to form to me. It's not how Matt plays it. It's not how David played it. It's not how Moffat pens it. He's a sexual being who has banged, at the very least Madame de Pompadour, Marilyn Monroe (implied), River Song, Queen Elizabeth the I, Mata Hari (implied), Nefretiri (implied that he wanted to) and the 9th Doctor said he'd "danced" which was clearly a euphemism for sex. Not to mention he wanted to have sex with both Amy and Rose, he didn't, he said it was because he was too old, and not human, yada yada yada, but that doesn't mean he didn't want to. I've never seen the Doctor not return a kiss from a hot chick. I'm being glib here but in truth there's a strong undercurrent within the classic fandom that likes to insist that not only is the Doctor canonically ace but that anyone who denies this fact is guilty of erasure. To them I say, you can shove your looms and your Lungbarrow up your arse.
The Doctor fucks and he's probably fantastic at it. Get over it.
What I Can't Stand: I'll be honest, I can't really stomach Rose, I mean, I truly think she's one of the most awful Mary-Sues ever created though I try to keep that in check.
But if you like her, that's awesome-sauce. You don't rock my ship, I sure as hell won't rock yours.
What I Don't Get: Folks who ship Eleven and Rose...he's moved on, kids. Folks who don't like River. Folks who think Amy didn't love Rory or just think Amy is an irritating damsel in distress. Were we watching the same show? But again, you don't rock my ship I won't rock yours. Deal?
More Crap About Me: I'm an impoverished Grad student who really should be working on my thesis instead of fan fiction but here we are. Bad speller. Frequent word leave-er out-er. Terrible self editor. Hipster-Poser. Screaming-screechy liberal. Karaoke rock star. Conspiracy theorist. Average Jane with a massive crush on the rectangle with hair otherwise known as Matt Smith. Oh and I'm American so if I get my Brit-speak wrong please forgive me but I do try.
Recently fallen in the dark hole that is RPF even though I avoided it for years. Now shameless lover of all things Mattex, Smillan and Smarvill. I'm going to hell.
That read like a personals ad, are we dating now?
