Author has written 19 stories for Sherlock, Downton Abbey, and Doctor Who.

I am fascinated by relationships and how people interact in them, so my stories will generally have a relationship as the focal point of the story (and sometimes multiple relationships). I like to test the limits of the characters as they explore their feelings for one another (whatever the context), but I generally like to end on a positive note, if I can.

Thanks to all who review and subscribe to story alert for my multi-chapter stories - I'm extremely grateful for them and they are much appreciated! :)

The Chronicles of Chiswick by Blinovitch reviews
The TARDIS strands Eleven at Clara's — six years later than he meant to arrive. Trapped across his timeline and up to his delicate eyebrows in spoilers, he receives a cryptic message from Twelve: one of his former companions is in danger, and he'll need the help of the others to save her. It's a reunion the Doctor would love to remember... but the laws of time doom him to forget.

Dance to Measure by Friendship-Bravery-Souffles reviews
Maybe it's because the dance is the distraction we've created for each other. He comes two steps forward, I go two steps back. I go right, and he goes left. If we keep that up neither of us has to admit the reason we tread so carefully around each other.

Suggestive by Friendship-Bravery-Souffles reviews
Twoshot - The Doctor, comfortable with masquerading as my husband while we break into a mad lady's gated community, but usually so caught off guard if you say anything, well anything suggestive. (Now with a second part because I got asked nicely several times and had an idea for it that wouldn't leave me alone)

After an argument with Clara, the Doctor decides to take a trip alone to prove to his companion that he can still manage on his own. He accidentally ends up in the American South in the 1960s, where he meets an echo of Clara who is about as fed up with her life as a housewife as a person can get.

The First Soufflé by frombluetored reviews
She refused to give into the sadness corrupting her heart. She refused to give the anger or the misery a voice. She was stronger than that. She would be stronger than that. Because there was a reason she had survived. There was a reason she was here, and she didn't know what it was, but she knew she'd been on her way to it her entire life. (Oswin Oswald, from start to finish.)

21 Seconds In Which Sherlock Holmes Was Wrong by Rayndrop reviews
He's in shock. It's the only explanation for why, as he looks at John standing by the pool, Sherlock ignores the clues and concludes only that his friend was Moriarty all along. He's never been in shock before. But then, he's never had a friend before.

Untouchable reviews
Clara stopped missing the touches, stopped smarting from his flinches when they would accidentally brush up against each other or bump arms. She stopped wondering what had changed so much inside him that had made her physically repulsive to him now. Then one night she agreed to a set-up on a blind date. Sequel to Hold Onto Me.

The Gift reviews
Her breathing rises and falls on shallow heaves and he finds his traitorous fingers tightening their grip on her. Like he could corral all of her precious breaths if he just held her enough. She pats his hand and tells him he doesn't have to stay. "I know you don't like endings," she says, and her quiet acceptance breaks something in him. Last Christmas AU; subtle Whouffle.

Things spiral out of control until neither knows who's telling the truth - and who's just trying to win at any cost.

Overtime and Office Space reviews
Everyone questioned the Doctor's wisdom as CEO when he hired an unemployed bartender named Clara, but she had quickly proved herself the perfect partner. Yet questions still remained – who was she? What was she hiding? Why did she deny any knowledge of computers? And the most unsettling: why did it seem she was always on the verge of running… Season 7b corporate AU.

Invasions reviews
"You know, in over a thousand years of time and space, I've never met anyone who wasn't important…until today." Judging from his reaction, I'm fairly certain no one's ever insulted him like that before. Then again – I never thought I'd say anything like that, either. But today has changed everything, of course.

"Believe me, leaving them like that was kinder." "Kinder!" Clara's eyes widened, her nostrils flaring as she followed him around the console, too restless to even fold her arms across her chest.

Clara stared at him, shaking her head from side to side. "Stop it." She didn't try to hide her crying now. "Just stop," she repeated, her voice growing in volume. "Just stop!" She grabbed him by the shoulders as if to shake him. His cheery façade gone, a thousand years of sorrow shone through. "I can't."
