1. Welcome to the new boards! Details here!

  2. Hey Fanficers! In fixing the prefixes something happened and now you can't edit titles. Don't panic! We're looking into what happened and trying to fix it.

Discussion [Multi - Fandom] The NSWFF Plot Bunny Adoption Thread.

    This is the all new - Mod approved NSWFF version of the Plot Bunny Adoption thread currently run by Jade_Max in the SW Resource forum. Basically if you have a plot bunny idea and you either do not have time to write it or do not feel like you can write it, just post it here and perhaps some writer who may have an inspiration from the idea can adopt it, feed it, and give it a good home. When the idea becomes a full - fledged fic (Either one shot or series) on the Fanfic board the adoptee will then edit or add a post putting a link to whatever story comes from the plot so the original poster of the idea and/or the general populace can read and enjoy the work that comes from the adopted bunny.

    As for how many can take an idea at a time... I'll leave that up to the author that posts their bunnies. Some will prefer to have just one person adopt their ideas and some are okay with having more than one author do their own takes on their ideas. Me? I happen to fall in the latter category. What fun is it if more than one person can't do their own take on the same idea? Sometimes I even end up writing the ideas i post as challenges/bunnies myself!

    Two hard and fast rules that are non - negotiable because the Mods have to enforce them outside this thread too:

    1. Do not post ideas that are from fandoms on the [link=]Disallowed works List.[/link] That includes any crossover ideas that might involve any banned fandoms/authors. The last thing we need is for this forum to be shut down because somebody like Anne Rice stumbles onto a plot idea posted by accident and goes crazy with the C&D orders like she has in the past. Please look over the list before posting any bunnies. These authors/corporations have their reasons for not wanting fan derived writings of their works, so let's respect them, okay?

    2. No Slash (same sex relationships). Neither fanon relationships or Canon ones. Sorry, again not my rule. This one comes directly from the owners of this site and the Mods have to enforce this. Meaning no outright Jack/Ianto or Willow/Tara bunnies. Nor any threesome plot bunnies. Personally, I'm not a slash fan, but I do sympathize with those that are. Again, sorry this one is out of my hands.

    At the moment there will be no index or hutch for the bunnies as there is in the SW bunny thread. If we get a lot of bunnies and/or authors taking the bunnies the idea of an index maybe revisited at a later date. For now the bunnies will intermix with each other in open pens.

    And with that the Adoption thread is now open for drop offs and adoptions!

    And I'll start us off with a very simple bunny:

    Plot Bunny #1:

    Stargate SG - 1: What if Teal'c had allowed the guard to shoot Jack in Children of the Gods?

    Plot Bunny #3

    In Prisoner of Azkaban, Trelawney predicts Harry's death and technically in Book 7, he dies, but comes back to life. Write a vignette about another one of her prophecies. What inspired this was the thought that maybe the next year, Colin Creevey was the one "targeted" by Trelawney's obsession with the Grim. Maybe she wasn't such a crackpot after all.

    Harry Potter plot bunnies

    Diana has always been your normal, average kid, and she likes it that way. When she gets a letter in the mail from Hogwarts, she finds out that her dad, an apparently ordinary man with an ordinary job as a mechanic, is a wizard. Follow their story as her dad deals with the past that he thought he left behind and as they thoroughly convince the wizarding world to respect Diana's decision to attend a normal junior high rather than train her magical talents. All this, while her mom's totally oblivious to even magic's existence.

    Also a Harry Potter bunny:

    Most Hogwarts graduates go on to work in the wizarding world, but one young woman, who's extremely curious about the Muggle world, decides to attend college instead. Things get quite funny as the girl who doesn't know much of the nonmagical world tries to conceal her magical abilities from all the oblivious muggles around her, especially her new roommate.

    and another HP bunny... why do I come up with a huge lot of them whenever I've work to do?

    The Malfoys had a girl instead of a boy. Though tradition demands a male heir, Narcissa's systems were so ripped up after this first birth that they had to stop after having Ursa. Since she's a rather pretty girl, she gets to live a pretty sheltered life that revolves mostly around her Slytherin sisters, Pansy Parkinson and the Greengrasses, and their shopping habits, until she's forced to marry Lord Voldemort to pay for Lucius's mistakes. In a rather rash act of desperation to save one of the best friends she's ever known, Daphne Greengrass mobilizes the Slytherin clique, particularly Ursa, to spy on Voldemort for Harry and his gang, in hopes of cutting short the dreaded marriage by killing the dark lord. One problem: Malfoy and Parkinson, as much as they want to get Ursa out of the marriage, utterly cannot get along with Hermione and Ginny.

    and now a house one as well:

    twenty-three years after the TV show, a young Helena Cuddy, who's just graduated college, is touring the US as an increasingly popular singer. She thinks that she's escaped from the medical world and with it, her mother's rather large shadow. She also thinks that just because she never remembered a father, the other parent simply never mattered. She was, after all, born artifically, right? That's until she gets badly burned in a pyrotechnics accident during a concert and winds up under House's care. She tries to tell herself that the familiar-looking, cranky House didn't actually sleep with her mother. She tries to tell herself that he doesn't matter. She tries to believe that she's created artificially. She tries to tell herself that her mother moved out of the US to get into international medical regulations solely for the sake of ambition. She tries to tell herself that the rather interesting, and cranky old doctor who looks an awful lot like her is nothing more to her than material for her next album. But how long will her beliefs stand when House is overseeing her treatment and out to confront her mother?

    In Wizard Heir, Linda Downey announces to the room that Seph is Leander Hasting's and her son. Write the reaction of someone in that room. I'd love to see it from Jack or Ellen's POV, but even one of the members of the Roses would be interesting. I can just imagine how thrilled Dr. Longbranch or Wylie would be to learn that their nemesis has a son...

    Or, write about Linda breaking it to Becca. Or how the rest of Trinity found out. It's got to be pretty big, learning that your sister has a seventeen year-old son you never knew about. I was pretty disappointed that it never even got mentioned in Dragon Heir, except for one line about Linda dating Ross Childers before she and Hastings were public knowledge, or a remark about Linda's parenting skills of Jason and Seph.

    back with another one:

    Harry Potter
    Sirius Black, while on the run and hiding from teh wizard authorities under his usual doggy guise, is mistaken for a stray and picked up by the humane society. If he doesn't get adopted in 3 days, they'll euthanize him. Write the story from there. I'd prefer to see a canon-compliant version.

    another HP one:

    Write an AU of what would have happened if Petunia got her wish and went to Hogwarts with her sister. As a child, she was a bit lonely and wanted friends, and so the hat put her in Hufflepuff. When Lily came, she asked to join her sister, and so she became a Puffie as well. Write the following series of scenes:

    Year 1: Tunie gets really lonely and sad without her little sister at her side.
    Year 2: You choose
    Year 3: include a very sweet sisterly reunion and celebration of the two being sorted into teh same house.
    Years 4-6: Show how life changes for muggleborns as Voldy continues to rise. Also show how Tunie's slightly jealous that her sister's smarter and more talented, but still loves Lily, unlike in canon.
    Year 7: Lily's made prefect, show the Snape scene with a different outcome. Lily's from a different house, and so she really doesn't know the Marauders all that much at all. In fact, she doesn't know a single thing about these boyz.
    Year 8: While Petunia appreciated the opportunity to experience life as a witch, the merciless bullying from the pureblood supremists and threat of Voldemort sent her into a self-imposed exile into Muggle London, where she's adjusting to life in a relatively unknown college.
    Year 9: Continue to showcase Petunia's college life, her new Muggle boyfriend, and her attempts to forget the magic that once made her happy. Lily doesn't fall for James because of Tunie's very low opinion of him but can't find anyone else that she really likes, so she graduates single. For the ultimate safety of her sister and boyfriend, Lily tearfully decided not to become an Auror and join the Order of the Phoenix, despite desperately wanting to fight for what she believed in.

    Afterwards: When Petunia eventually got married and had her first child, both sisters fled to either Australia or the U.S. for the sake of Tunie's new family. With no Harry to stop Voldy, Europe is left in shambles. Show a bittersweet ending where the sisters and their parents are still close and all alive, but where Lily also regrets not fighting at the front line and tries to convince herself that it was a good idea to sacrifice her dreams and magic for the sake of her family.

    and one more:

    Title: The Black Rose
    Note from plot bunny giver: When I searched, I found quite a bit about the dynamics between Bella, Andy, and Cissy and their Black cousins, but nothing on their possible maternal relationship to the Rosiers, and so want to portray Evan as an equal to Regulus when it comes to cousinly attention from at least one of the Black girls.
    Summary: Blonde hair, blue eyes, the feminized version of the name of maternal uncle Narcissus, who died in an accident. Despite the Black name, Narcissa and her traits were Rosier through and through, down to the point of carrying roses around all the time---the only difference: hers were black while the the Rosiers typically carried red and white. She was originally one flower of an infamous trine, and happy with the fearsome reputation that they held as the most fearsome flowers of all of Hogwarts. While the perfect flowerbed continued to thrive for a short while after the first joined the flowers of France after marrying a Lestrange, it was reduced to shambles after Ted Tonks finally succeeded in trimming the thorns off of her remaining companion. Now it's up to Narcissa, the supposed rosiest of the Rosiers, to recover the patch's reputation by finding and winning over Hogwart's most respectable, rich, and pureblooded male while shielding her favorite kid cousin, Evan, from the shame that now besmirched their family. And she doesn't know what's worse: her female rivals for male attention, or prefec

    For those who have seen Wicked! The musical

    What would have happened if Elphaba had accepted the Wizards offer when she returned to free the monkeys?
    whether a one shot or epic it should cover the effect on the lives of everyone dear to her. Glinda, Fiero, Nessarose, Boq, Father, Dr Dillamond, Morrible, The Wizard.

    Just PM me if you plan to do it, it's open to all.

    More ideas...WHOO-WHO!

    This time there not for The Tudors, but for that movie on lifetime Prayers for Bobby.

    ~In the beggining when Bobby thought of taking the asprin and he couldn't do it...., what if he actually did end up taking the asprin? What would happen?~

    ~1~Ed is still the one who finds Bobby after he's taken all the asprin.
    ~2~Bobby does live, he gets help before the asprin can actually kill him.
    ~3~Does he still tell Ed that he's gay, or does he keep it to himself?
    ~4~If he does tell Ed, and Ed tells their mom, does she react the same way after everything that has already heppened?
    ~5~Could be an eventual Bobby/David fic if you want.

    ~When Bobby jumps off the bridge, What if it doesn't actually kill him and he lives? What would happen?~

    ~6~Does Bobby's mom still finally accept Bobby for who he is and understands that he can't be cured?
    ~7~How does Bobby's family act overall?
    ~8~What does David think of Bobby trying to kill himself?
    ~9~Just because Bobby doesn't die when he jumps off the bridge doesn't mean something else doesn't happen either. So just how badly did the fall hurt him? Can he remember anything?

    Plot Bunny #22
    [Law & Order: Special Victims Unit]
    Amelia Chase (from "Ridicule") is Casey Novak's estranged sister. Perhaps she tries to contact Casey from prison, maybe while Casey has her license suspended. Background: Amelia Chase and Casey Novak are played by the same actress.

    Plot Bunny #23
    [Law & Order: Special Victim's Unit]
    Vivian (from "Trophy") is in fact Olivia Benson's half-sister. (She would be such a much cooler sibling than Simon!) Maybe she could even have her own avenging angel spin-off. Background: Vivian and Olivia (Viv and Liv) both have unknown fathers who assaulted their mothers.

    Plot Bunny #24
    [TURN: Washington's Spies]
    Send My Love.... Whenever I hear "Send My Love (to Your New Lover)" by Adele I think of Anna/Abe. Once I mentioned to my dad that the song made me think of TURN, he jokingly responded, "Oh, you mean Washington and Benedict Arnold?" There's a plot bunny in there somewhere, though I haven't quite teased it out (and it risks getting into a very weird area!). I'm thinking something along the lines of a series of (unsent) letters that at first appear to be from Anna to Abe, but it turns out are from Washington to Benedict Arnold, expressing his deep disappointment that his former friend and comrade has betrayed America.

    Plot Bunny #25
    [The Hunger Games] (Shades of Atonement) I thought of this during the Fanfic Olympics Alternate Ending Challenge a few years ago. The team ended up going in a different direction, but I think this idea might still have potential. After the ending of the Hunger Games, there is an addendum, written by Katniss. This addendum makes clear that the prior novel is a work of fiction - that in fact Katniss did not (or was not allowed to) volunteer in Primrose's place. Primrose went to the Hunger Games and died early. Nothing has changed with the games, life continues as always.

    3-19-18 Edited to Add: I suppose there could be plot bunnies for continuing the story of almost every guest star on SVU (and a lot of other tv shows too), so I'm not going to add plot bunnies for every episode, just one more for now because I feel like it has the potential to be really adorable.

    Plot Bunny #26
    [Law & Order: Special Victim's Unit]
    Captain Cragen becomes a mentor (or maybe even a foster parent) to Glenn (from "Care"). Background: Cragen discovers he has a knack for video games when Glenn, who is obsessed with a video game, is suspected of murder. Turns out Glenn is much more hero than villain, but despite this he ends up in foster care with an uncertain future.
