Author has written 22 stories for Professor Layton, and Doctor Who.

Nikki. 16. Theatre lover, TV addict, and often found procrastinating with a cup of tea, netflix and a blanket.

I often attempt to write. Begin to. Get distracted. Give up. Leave fanfiction for six months. Return.

It's a cycle. I'll try and get out of it. But, hey, what can you do?


My main fandoms are DEFINITELY Professor Layton and Doctor Who.

Professor Layton wise, I fell in love with the game when I was about 10. I haven't stopped playing since. However *mumble mutter mumble* I have yet to play Azran Legacy because my 3DS broke about three days after completing Miracle Mask *mumble mutter mumble*. Though, I of course have given in and read spoilers, I won't write anything based around Azran Legacies as my grasp on the storyline and the characters involved in the game, is basic. Though I may read occasionally.

My favourite character is definitely Claire. I mean, how bad ass is she?!

My favourite game is Lost Future, but I can't play without crying for about two hours. Maybe three.

My favourite pairing is Layton/Claire.

My least favourite pairing is Flora/Clive. I just want her and Luke to grow up and get married too bad...

Doctor Who wise, I was introduced to the show at about the age of three (classic ones, mind you). Of course I didn't really GET them but I loved them all the same. When Doctor Who came back in 2005, I watched and still didn't really GET what was going on. But I grew up with it. Despite that, I don't count myself as a whovian because so many whovians just complain about it. And I don't do that. (Apart from that time Amy slapped Rory because that's domestic abuse and just because it's the female abusing does not mean it's at all okay, and the show conveyed it in a comical way and just NO!)

My favourite character is River Song. Or Donna Noble. Two bad ass woman. (D'ya guys see a pattern here?)

My favourite episode is The Angels Take Manhattan because of the River/11 moments in it, but I really struggle to watch it 'cause PONDS!

My favourite pairing is DEFINITELY River/11!

My least favourite pairing is Clara/12...


I really like writing stories where my OTPs have kids. Yeah... It's a thing.
