Author has written 18 stories for Doctor Who, and Thunderbirds.

Good day wonderful people of the Internet

I am Balek and I like Thunderbirds, Star Trek, Doctor Who and Pokemon to name a few, but Thunderbirds is my main muse at the moment.

I did try my hand at Fanfiction writing a few years ago at sixth form (the evidence is the two Doctor Who stories) but it never really appealed to me so I gave up. But one night, I was searching for something Thunderbirds related and found some incredible fanfiction. And I found myself once again thrown into the world of writing! (Maybe also helped by the fact I work with 5 guys who make for some good inspiration!)

And for those who would like to know, for Thunderbirds, I like both the TV show and the movie (as long as I ignore the major canon fluff-ups), and in my head at least, my stories are sort of a mixture of the two, though at times it may be leaning more obviously towards one than the other.

Well, that is all you need to know about me. I'd just like to say that I appreciate everyone's lovely reviews and favourites! They never fail to put a grin on my face for the rest of the day!

Now, back to business! See you around!

Fiery Fuses and Confidant Cows by Loopstagirl reviews
Fixing fuses should have been easy. Then again, things were never easy with a Tracy. Household chores were never complete without a little teasing and a heart to heart on the side. And of course, apple pie.

The Work Out by Loopstagirl reviews
"All you do is sit around waiting for rescues." Alan should have known saying something like that was a red flag to a bull. There was no way his brothers were going to let the insult slide.

The TB2 launch system in TAG is pretty impressive, especially the bit where the harness releases Virgil at the precise moment to let him swing off the end of the rail. But, as with all technology, things can, and will go wrong.
