Christmas special funny bunny

Username: newmoonstar
Era: Eleventh Doctor/Twelfth Doctor
Characters/Pairings (if any): Eleventh Doctor, Twelfth Doctor, Clara Oswald, and any characters from Classic Who or New Who you want to throw in there.
Plot Bunny Summary: Inspired by a comment about "The Time of the Doctor" made by bitter_suite24 over at doctorwho I desperately need a cracky fic wherein the Doctor and Clara, having placed Clara's Christmas turkey in the Tardis to cook, realize that they've inadvertently cooked up a mystical Time Turkey, which turns anyone who eats it into a Time Lord, or gives them timey-wimey Bad Wolf powers, and that time itself could unravel as a result of this Christmas dinner! Make it as crazy as you can, throw in as many other Doctors/companions/villains you like, and the fate of the universe hanging on gravy or cranberry sauce would be a plus.
Any Other Notes: if the first person to take this up would entitle the resulting story "The (Tur)Key to Time", I would love you. ;D

Special Spring Challenge!

It's the grand dw_straybunnies Spring Challenge! It's still a little out-there, but since it proved such fun last time and everyone seemed to think we should do it again... here goes!

So, here are 12 as yet unadopted prompts. Anyone who writes any variation of any of them of any length gets a participation banner, and 2 points.

You get 2 further points for every extra story you write and 1 further point for any elements from any of the other prompts you incorporate into your fic.

So, basically, 2 points for writing, say Kate Stewart. If you write pirate!Kate battling the telepathic plants you get 4 points. 5 if she's been interrupted from her road trip in Bessie.

If you write twelve stories, or incorporate all twelve prompts into one fic, you win. (Mostly kudos, but there will certainly be a winner's banner, and I'll see if I can think of something else to offer.)

Given the odd mix of prompts, your fic can be as cracky as you wish. Or as serious - it's up to you! Feel free to put as wide an interpretation as you wish on the original prompt.

Your 12 random prompts are:

1. From primsong: historical adventure with tulip speculators in the 1600s
2. " taiyou_to_tsuki: road trip in Bessie (post Battlefield
3. " ravenskyewalker: (Three-era) pirate AU.
4. " persiflage_1: more Kate (Lethbridge-)Stewart
5. " derekmetaltron: Doctor Who/Marvel crossover.
6. " tenthrose: Mickey Smith / Craig Owens / school.
7. " tenthrose: The adventures of Maxil!
8. " dbskyler: Fourth Doctor and Leela.
9. " curuchamion: a daisiest-daisy type scene (with Three, as in The Time Monster).
10. " tenthrose: story set on a planet with only telepathic plants as a lifeform.
11. " persiflage_1: Liz Shaw, Martha Jones, and Rory Williams (three medics).
12. " lost_spook: (First Doctor and) the St George and the Dragon legend.

So if you're unsure about some of the characters, don't worry too much. It's mainly fun, so if you want to learn enough to have the Doctor mention - while running away from Maxil, under suspicion of tulip-theft - that it's a shame Leela isn't here, because she would have been handy, you'd still get at least half a point for it. Also, wide interpretation is wide - any Doctor in a pirate AU, a roadtrip in Bessie, or tackling St George and the Dragon will get you those prompts. If you can learn enough about the unknown characters via the powers of the internet, you can risk a quick cameo - this isn't a serious ficathon, or a gift exchange!

However, also don't be afraid to simply take one of the prompts and write perfectly straight fic. The original prompter will no doubt be delighted - and you may still win, as there's no guarantee anyone will write fic at all, let alone multiple fics!

The challenge will open on Monday 1st April and close on Sunday 28th April. (I won't close down the challenge officially until Mon 29th, so as long as it's still Sunday 28th in some time zone, somewhere, you're good.)

Additional rule: no more than 2 drabbles per person (you can write a 12 drabble set if you wish, but only the first 2 will earn you points for the prize). Also list fic, or a drabble or short poem that uses all the words of the prompts in some way will only get you the usual 2 points and a banner. This is merely in the interests of some rough attempts at fairness and not to discourage anyone from tackling the prompts in any way they feel inclined!

Please post your stories, or links to them here in this post. Please include a note to say which prompts you've included in the fic. If you have any questions, please ask here.

Happy writing!

ETA: Bonus appearances by the evil giraffes are always welcome. ;-D

And now for something completely different (well, slightly different)

Stand by for the second dw_straybunnies really belated Winter Holiday Spring challenge! It'll run pretty much as last time.

Rules and prompts etc. will be up tomorrow (but don't worry; there will be four weeks in which to write, post, read and have fun).

This is your one day warning. (Your mod is so terribly organised, but she has got some fun prompts in her hands...)

Discussion post - Minor/Guest Characters

It's well past time for another discussion post!

This time, how about minor characters - one-off (or maybe two-off) guest characters you'd love to see more of? Given how many different worlds, times and places the Doctor has visited in the past fifty years, there are any number of great characters we saw only once in passing.

Which of those would you like to see fic for? Any ideas? For me, I confess, it's always the Classic Who guest characters I think about the most - after all, many of us lived with them for three, four or even six weeks back in the day. Prf. Amelia Rumford should have all the fic, Mrs Tyler too (she fights Death with table salt; how awesome is that?), Adam Colby, Cameca, Duggan, nearly everybody from Robots of Death, Litefoot & Jago (if they count now they've got their own BF series), the amazing Bambera and Ancelyn, and so many others. So many. How about everyone else? Who do you think ought to be picked up and explored more in fic?

(As for what counts as a minor character, it's hard to say - I'm going to leave it at "not a Doctor/companion/regular" and preferably "hasn't appeared more than twice", but don't worry about it too much. This comm takes any bunnies in and gives them a home till they can be adopted by a new and unwary owner.

Plus some random pairings as your starter for tenCollapse )

But enough of the RPG's inevitably limited selection - you have the entire range to choose from, so tell us about it here.

March's Prompt of the Month is now closed!

The business of the comm continues as ever, and stand by for a special challenge in April.

Prompt of the Month - March 2013

Time for the next Prompt of the Month! Your three prompts for this month (chosen at random by your mod's highly technical process) are as follows:



* From curuchamion: "Two Doctors" crack missing scene - Two and Six go shopping for curtains to cover the police-box windows. original post here

* From tenthrose: a DW/Magic Tree House crossover - from the Crossover discussion post

* From daystarsearcher: The Wicked Witch of the West is one of the Flesh original post here


Remember, you can use any one of the prompts you choose, or combine them, or any mix of the three that works for you. Have fun!

Rules of the challenge
Fics can be as short or as long as you like and any other fanworks are welcome. Please post wherever you wish but link back to this post via the comments (or you can post comment!fic here - that's fine too). Other fanworks are equally welcome for the monthly challenges.

Bonus points for including as much of the original prompt(s) as possible, but this is a free-for-all, so there is plenty of room for interpretation (e.g. same prompt, but variation of characters etc.)

All participants will receive a banner. The challenge closes on Sunday 24th March.


Don't forget that all prompts are always open for the taking. You can find the Prompt Masterlist here - and the comm is always open for more ideas!

DW - Eight

lost_spook

Discussion post - Eighth Doctor

Time for another discussion post!

This time it's the Eighth Doctor and his era, probably the strangest in DW - he stands as a bridge between Doctor Who Old and New, not quite one or the other and for a Doctor who only had one brief outing, his separate adventures in different media cover quite a huge period with many characters, most of them equally worthy of fic.

And that's even before we get to New Who's burdening this seemingly most light-hearted of Doctors with the horror of the Time War off-screen and the opportunities that presents for creative fans...

What fic (or other fanworks) are you wanting to see more of for Eight and his era? Any more Eight in general, ships, companions, crossovers, genres - what do you think? (Don't forget any ideas shared here will get linked back to the masterpost and included in the selection for Prompt of the Month, so you never know - sometimes Stuff Happens...)

As ever, to kick everything off, here's a motley selection of ideas from the Random Pairing Generator (I think I've managed to get a reasonable selection across the TVM, Big Finish, the EDAs and the DWM comic strips):

Here be Many Random PromptsCollapse )

Prompt of the Month - February 2013

Gosh, look, it's a dw_straybunnies Prompt of the Month post! (Please don't faint, folks, sorry it's been so long.)

And it's typical - you wait half a year for a monthly prompt, and then three come along at once... Yes, I have selected three prompts at random this month. So, you can still take the widest possible interpretation on each (there could be several people writing a prompt, that's absolutely fine - the original prompt stays on the masterlist), you can mix and match between the prompts and/or even combine them all. And here they are:


* Any Meddling Monk fic (from derekmetaltron)

* Jack Harkness/Second Doctor/In the dark (Random prompt from the Second Doctor discussion post)

* Eight/Romana II (from persiflage_1 in the spin-offs discussion post).


Rules of the challenge
Fics can be as short or as long as you like. Please post wherever you wish but link back to this post via the comments (or you can post comment!fic here - that's fine too). Other fanworks are equally welcome for the monthly challenges.

Bonus points for including as much of the original prompt(s) as possible, but this is a free-for-all, so there is plenty of room for interpretation (e.g. same prompt, but variation of characters etc.)

All participants will receive a banner. The challenge closes on Sunday 24th February.

Discussion post - Ninth Doctor

Your errant mod returns, but this time I at least do finally have a discussion post. There will be updates and *gasp* even a Prompt of the Month for February. (And there has been fic lately, too! \o/) The holiday challenge will turn up - cunningly - at a different holiday, possibly even disguised as a ficathon. So, I am a neglectful mod, but I am listening and hope to be much better in 2013. (More when I have a proper update post in the next week or so.)

In the meantime, here's a chance for you to share some ideas and thoughts about the Ninth Doctor and his era. Have you got anything you've been dying to see somebody write? Ideas for him you've given up on for yourself? Minor characters, multi-era ideas or crossovers you think'd be perfect for him? Ships that aren't sailing fast enough for you?

Anyway, here's the place to share, discuss and maybe pick up some prompts and generate fic - who knows?

As ever, let's begin with some randomly generated prompts under the cutCollapse )

Unwhosual - a prompt fic comm

  
FAQ | Rules | Round One | Fills

unwhosual is a prompt comm for Doctor Who
intending to cover ships, spin-offs and crossovers
typically glossed over, that the fandom at large has
moved on from, or which nobody has thought to do
before. Membership is open and posting unmoderated,
and you can prompt as many ideas as you like,
and you can fill as many prompts as you like.

Doctor Who Friending Meme

There's a Doctor Who friending meme going on here:



And the poll about what you'd like to see on dw_straybunnies is still open if you want to leave your thoughts. And I shall hopefully put up a discussion post before the weekend is out. Regarding the poll, most people seem to like the idea of the holiday challenge, as last year, so there will be one! Of some kind... Thanks, everyone!
