  1. I am an enormous, gigantious, incredibly obese very huge extra extra extra large fan of Dr. Who, despite having never seen this show!

  2. According to the rules, the entry has to be an original piece of work without infringing on copyrights (“Submission must be an original work created solely by you, has not been previously published, and does not infringe upon any third-party copyrights or other intellectual property rights.” – does this mean that we cannot use the characters of the Doctor Who universe, and that the story is simply to be /inspired/ by Doctor Who?

  3. YES! I’m so glad I already had a third fanfic planned! Thank you awesome timing! (And Figment)

    I’m going to hope I can get some hearts on this one. I think I’ve forgotten how to ask for swaps….

  4. HOLY TARDIS OF GALLIFREY! I am soooo excited to see how my submission does! Nervous, but excited. 🙂

  5. This is going to be awesome! I have a story that is ready to be put on here just need to finish the last chapter and I’m done.
