[sticky post] About This Comm

Welcome to dw_straybunnies. It's a space for any Doctor Who-related fanfic (or other fanwork) ideas you're not planning to write up yourself. Exorcise that idea that's been haunting you by donating it to this comm.

It's also a place to pick up inspiration in the wild by taking somebody else's prompt. All prompts can be claimed as many times as people wish and new prompts are welcome at any time. There are, of course, equally no guarantees that prompts will be used - but you never know!

Discussion of the ideas and general batting bunnies back and forwards in the comments is welcome, too.

If you create a fanwork for a prompt, please post to the comm using this template:

However, please do remember to also post a link as a comment to the original post - that way the donor should be more likely to see it. (This is a change to the rules as of 10/10/14, in the interests of simplicity and less work for an errant mod!)

Please do NOT post any fic unrelated to any of the 'plotbunnies' donated here. You'll want dwfiction or an appropriate character/era themed comms for that.

And, generally, have fun, and play nicely!

Guidelines for posting unwanted ideas are here. (The lifeblood of this comm are people's prompts. More are always welcome even when things have become a little quieter, so never be afraid to post. If you have any problems, drop a comment to this post and your mods will do their best to help.)

You can find the Prompt Masterlist here and the Fanworks Masterlist here.

Doctor Who: Victoria


Plot bunny- Victoria & Zoe: bffs

Username: newmoonstar
Era: Classic Who (Second Doctor era)
Characters/Pairings: Victoria Waterfield, Zoe Heriot, Second Doctor, Jamie McCrimmon
Plot Bunny Summary: Victoria & Zoe somehow get to share an adventure with the Doctor & Jamie. I don't really have any plot to suggest beyond that idea, except that Victoria & Zoe would become immediate friends (and allies in teasing Jamie) and the Doctor would find it all very amusing.
Any Other Notes: I got the idea after seeing Deborah Watling, Wendy Padbury & Frazer Hines together at a convention, and their dynamic is so funny & adorable just like Victoria, Zoe & Jamie would be if they were all together, and I just know there's a fun story there, but for the life of me I can't come up with it.

Discussion Post - Seventh Doctor ideas

It must be time for another discussion post. After all, it's been at least a year and a half, and we hadn't even got through all the Doctors - and now we've got another one! Doesn't time fly, even when you're not having fun? More seriously, your terminally errant mod has finally got to grips with some things that were getting in the way & hopefully should at least be able to post more regular discussions again. In the meantime, the comm is still, as ever, open for the donating of prompts and writing of fic for them.

Anyway, more of that anon, for now, we're here to talk about the Seventh Doctor! From lovable clown to dark manipulator and all things in between, he had a TV run that was cut short, but an extended life in other media, especially the New Adventures, and there's plenty to play with.

So, what Seventh Doctor fics would we like to see exist? Are you after more Ace, feel that Mel never gets a chance to shine, or missing Chris and Ros, or Doctor-era Benny? Can there ever be enough Hex, Raine, or Elizabeth Klein for your liking? Got a few plotty ideas for adventures Seven ought to have had, or a love for guest characters of the era? Which other era's Doctors/companions/villains would you like to see Seven meet? Share them here! You never know - sometimes magical things happen...

As for me, I love all things Seven and Ace and could never be sorry with more of them, and it'd be fun to see them encounter Twelve and Clara. How about everyone else?

And in the time-honoured tradition, here's a few suggestions from the Random Pairing Generator to kick things off:

Doctor Who Barbara


3 Jennys plot bunny

Username: newmoonstar
Era: multi-era
Characters/Pairings: Jenny Flint, Jenny (the Doctor's daughter), and Jenny (resistance fighter girl befriended by Barbara in 'The Dalek Invasion of Earth')
Plot Bunny Summary: There've been several characters called Jenny, and I can't help thinking that they could totally have an adventure together. I don't have any idea how they would end up meeting, but they should save the world, and there should be much ass-kicking, and general girl-power awesomeness.
Any Other Notes: I realize not as many people have seen Classic Who, so if anybody wanted to do just Paternoster Jenny and Doctor's Daughter Jenny saving the world, that would be great too!

Eleventh Doctor


Clara-centric prompts

Here's a few Clara prompts that I thought up:

Bucket request

One I've been hanging onto for a while:

Username: lost_spook
Era (if any): New Who
Characters/Pairings (if any): Eleventh Doctor, Lorna Bucket
Plot Bunny Summary: In A Good Man Goes To War, Eleven's first meeting with Lorna Bucket is her second with him - I'd love to see a fic about their other meeting, when she was younger. (Because Eleven + child fic, yes.)
Any Other Notes: None.


Tegan & Nyssa plotbunny

Username: john_amend_all
Era: Fifth Doctor
Characters/Pairings: Tegan & Nyssa
Plot Bunny Summary: Tegan and Nyssa have to pose as a married couple.
Any Other Notes: Over the years there have been various fics that shipped Nyssa/Tegan. What I don't recall seeing is one where they aren't a couple, but have to act as if they were. Perhaps someone they meet thinks they're married, and they have to go along with the pretence for complicated Universe-saving reasons. A present-day or near-future Earth setting would also mean Tegan had to handle Nyssa's unfamiliarity with Earth while struggling with a few decades' worth of culture shock.

Last of the Doctors plotbunny inspired by "Time of the Doctor"

Username: dbskyler
Era (if any): Eleventh Doctor or AU Twelfth Doctor
Characters/Pairings (if any): Eleventh Doctor or Twelfth Doctor; other characters as you like
Plot Bunny Summary:

In "Time of the Doctor," we learned that Eleven was on his last life. I wish we had learned that information earlier in Eleven's run, and gotten to see some of the implications of that, so I am throwing this prompt out in the hope of inspiring fic. What was it like for the Doctor to know that he had no more regenerations left? Did he know he was on his last incarnation from the moment of his regeneration into Eleven from Ten, or did he find out later that he "lost" a regeneration during "Journey's End"? Did he have any particular goals for his last life? Was he more worried about going into danger? Less worried? Did he ever tell any of his companions? If so, what were their reactions?

As an alternative to Eleven, what about an AU Twelfth Doctor fic where he is the one on his last life? What is it like for him to be starting out on his last incarnation? Any goals? I would particularly love to see fic where he's trying to find Gallifrey and restore the Time Lords as the main thing he wants to accomplish before he goes. Although actually, come to think of it, this could be a non-AU Eleventh Doctor prompt as well if you place it between "Day of the Doctor" and "Time of the Doctor."

Any Other Notes: This is a plotbunny where multiple fills are very much encouraged! We didn't get to see these ideas played with in the show, so bring on the fanfic!
