Author has written 3 stories for Space 1999, Doctor Who, and Radio Dramas.

I've been writing fanfictionacrorss variousfandoms for over twenty-five years, since the days when, if you wanted to read any,you had to send off a £2.50 postal order and hope that twenty sides of photocopied typescript would arrive in the post three weeks later. The Internet is a wonderful thing.

Probably the majority of my work has been on Space: 1999, a relatively neglected fandom. However, I've also written Babylon 5, Max Headroom, Addams Family, Crime Traveller (a show no-one watched but me), Sapphire and Steel, ST:TNG, Doctor Who, Cabin Pressure (a radio show) and a couple of other obscure British shows. I'm taking a break from fan fic writing for now to launch my own original series, Spaceforce - full details, including a free download of the first instalment, at http://www.penelopeirving.com.

I like relatively straightforward, canonical stories which focus on and expand upon existing relationships within a show. Fanfic is all about the shippiness, but I really like it to have a plot and a context.

I dislike fragmentary stories without plot and structure, violently OOCness, anttd the more bizarre excesses such as mpreg. Personally, non-canonical slash does nothing for me.

Viala is the name of a character I played in the online game EverQuest for three years.

In Blood Only by E.M. Snape reviews
Snape is Harry's father. No one is happy to hear it. [R due to colorful language, dark themes, and nongraphic violence.]

Shattered reviews
Cabin Pressure. Arthur came top of his year at school once. Was it really a 'dreadful public school', as Douglas said - or did something else happen? (Warnings for child abuse, violence and serious injury.) Gen.

Transformation reviews
While investigating a deserted base, Maya is accidentally transported to a nearby starship. She soon discovers that many of the crew are humans from Earth, and that 'rescue' for the Alphans could be close at hand. Star Trek: The Next Generation crossover.

Lifeline reviews
This is a 'Rose is pregnant by the Doctor' story, with a bit more to it than just that. However, please be warned some readers might find later scenes disturbing. It's definitely not fluff.
