So I've been thinking about writing an actual Doctor Who fic, and not just random drabbles. Which would be an interesting endeavor--despite having devoured each and every episode of the new Who series, I don't know if I could do the characters justice in my portrayal. Especially after reading some of the other authors out there in this fandom. But forge ahead I shall... one can't ever improve without trying, eh?
My original thought was to write about the Doctor and Rose on an adventure and meeting up with Elizabeth Bathory
. An uncommon enough subject, I thought, and one that no one else would think of! And in fact, the only reason I know of the name is from watching Ghost Hunters International on the SciFi channel (I love me some paranormal stuff). Imagine my shock and disbelief when I saw someone post a story to time_and_chips
with a summary about the Doctor and Rose going to 17th century Hungary and meeting the Bloody Countess. Well, pooh.
I have the beginnings of an idea for another story in my head now. I can tell you right now that I'll be mightily displeased and may descend into paranoia if someone posts a story with the same basic plot next week...
In other news, I'm working on tonight's drabble. Slight smut (oh my!), of which I have not attempted to write before. Would have had it written and posted yesterday, but my cousin's aunt invited me over to dinner... and I never say no to free food. ^_~
