    Default Plot Bunny Adoption

    Is there one of these already? If there is I can't find it. (Please point my to a thread like this if you know of one)

    I get weird plot bunnies. Not so much ideas as... summary-ish things. Or first paragraphs. Or blurbs. I have never written one of them. I probably never will.

    Anyone else out there like that and feels the need to share? Anyone out there who wants to adopt the poor lil bunnies, if they turn up?

    a plot bunny is a story idea

    maybe just a sentence, maybe a paragraph, or beginning

    a plot bunny could be

    what if sam didn't visit cassie in ITLOD
    what if jack didn't stop jacob in Meridian
    what if jack got hathor's goauld
    what if Aiden took Sam as a hostage in Forsaken

    it's an idea to kick start a fic

    anyone have any? it doesn't have to be anything deep or complicated. two years ago a plot bunny was 'what if the sgc's phone number got printed as a santa hotline'

    This one followed me home from King Harry Arkan's world.

    Since it's a season eight ep along with elements from Atlantis eps this plot bunny is a white rabbit....

    Spoiler:
    Harry's trusted lieutenant (the actress billed as "servant" in the credits), is actually a fellow of Janus' secret Ancient time-travelling historical type society. She returned to this planet around the same time Maybourne did, and watched as he altered the past, by actually convincing the townsfolk to move out of the way of what were deadly flodwaters the first time it happened and she stuck around.


    Here's how I see some of the details working out. If anyone wants to actually adopt the bunny, you might not want to read this next part.

    Spoiler:
    The Ancient historian cloaked her timeship against the practiced eyes of the native hunters. When Teal'c came near, she uncloaked it for him, she also remotely opened the door and turned on the lights for these three humans who lacked the gene needed to activate the ship's controls(optional - depends on your understanding of how the gene works).

    The butterfly effect being what it is, though, Mayborne's actions to save the townsfolk have altered how the future will play out, but the Ancient has become attached to these people. She decides that she has to nudge things along toward another happy ending, and only steps in when it becomes obvious that Jack wants to blow up the timeship. This is definately not what happened the first time.

    Later, when Harry comes clean and tells them he doesn't deserve to be their king, she is the one who steps forward and asks where the medicine, laws, irrigations systems, etc came from, knowing full well that they were not written on the stones.
    Gracie

    A Cherokee elder sitting with his grandchildren told them,
    "In every life there is a terrible fight – a fight between two wolves.
    One is evil: he is fear, anger, envy, greed, arrogance, self-pity,
    resentment, and deceit. The other is good: joy, serenity, humility,
    confidence, generosity, truth, gentleness, and compassion."
    A child asked, "Grandfather, which wolf will win?"
    The elder looked the child in the eye. "The one you feed."

    Atlantis plot bunny.

    At some point in S1, Ford gets implanted with a Wraith tracking device, which is one of the ways that the Wraith are managing to home in on the team... and the city. When the Atlantis crew figures this out, Ford escapes and decides to rough it on his own in order to protect the people of Atlantis. He's on his own, with limited resources, trying to outrun not just the Wraith, but his teammates as well, who are trying to find him and bring him back to Atlantis so they can find a way to get the chip out of his head.

    Heart Re: Plot Bunny Adoption

    Stargate SG-1 shippy bunny. I'm a pragmatic shipper. I this idea would make both shipper and non-shippers happy. It would be loads of fun to write, but I'm not very good with mushy stuff. I hope you guys/gals like it, and feel free to adopt it!

    Stargate SG-1 "Fragile Balance"
    Spoiler:

    Introduction: "Fragile Balance" occurs just as it does until we reach the scene where Thor states that he is not sure he can cure Young Jack. Here is where the fic diverges from canon...Instead of being able to cure Young Jack directly, Thor needs to create another clone to monitor it's growth so he can determine exactly what he need to do to cure Young Jack.

    Thor: In order to stablize the adolescent O'Neill's genetic structure, I will need to use Loki's equipment to create another clone so that I can monitor it's development and isolate what gene sequences need to be repaired, and how to repair them.

    O'Neill: Whoa! Hold on! You mean there's going to be two little me's running around!

    Thor: If the procedure is successful, then yes, both of your clones will survive and live the average human life-span.

    O'Neill: C'mon Thor, isn't there something else you could do, anything else...magnets?

    Thor: Without a frame of reference it would be statistically impossible for me to know how to repair the flaw.

    Young Jack: We're talking about my life here...

    Sam: [interrupting] Thor, does the clone have to be of Colonel O'Neill?

    Thor: What are you suggesting?

    Sam: Clone me.

    Both Jacks look up in surprise.

    Sam: If you implant me with the same safeguard that you placed in Colonel O'Neill's genetic structure, and then cloned me, you should be able to use that information to save Colonel O'Neill's clone.

    Thor: It is possible, though the individual is different, human genetic structure similar enough on a basic level that I should be able derive the necessary information from your clone, Major Carter.

    Carter looks up at Jack with a soft, knowing smile, waiting for him to respond. Jack suppresses a similar but almost envious look on his face. Young Jack make little effort to hide the fact that he is pleased. Jack nods in approval.

    Sam: Okay, let's get started.
    ________________________

    Cut to van scene outside of the high school...this takes place much as it does in canon, but with Jack and Sam in the front seat, and Young Jack and Young Sam in the back.

    Whoever adopts this bunny can add the farewell dialogue.

    As Sam and Jack drive away, Young Sam and Young Jack look at each other and smile. To the same soft fade-out music they played at the end of "Lost City," we see Young Jack and Sam walk away.

    Jack's hand slowly moves toward Sam's. Their fingertips find each other and then we fade to the credits.

    Awwww...

    Now someone adopt this bunny so we can find out what happens to Young Jack and Young Sam.

    The talk on the "kill someone off" thread got me to thinking...

    I have an idea for a Zelenka-centric fic. I'm figuring most of it would be told through journal entries or in scenes FROM journal entries detailing what happens when McKay is killed in an accident/fight and how Zelenka suddenly finds himself thrust into position as "primary expert on all things Ancient" and how he deals with the stress, the feelings of inadequacy, the communication hiccups, his "survivor's guilt", all his remeniscing on McKay and how they always fought but Zelenka actually respected him a great deal and misses him terribly, blah blah blah and he wishes he could find a way to go back and stop the accident... and then wrap it up with Zelenka looking over his journal when McKay comes in and says something obnoxious... basically, the journal appeared mysteriously or was discovered somewhere, all written in Czech, so Zelenka was given the job of translating it. When asked, he dismisses it all as "just a diary", but when the situation that led to McKay's death arises (probably the point when McKay comes in and snarks at him), Zelenka volunteers instead. And hey, with his foreknowledge of what happens, chances are he can maybe avoid whatever happened to McKay.

    that really is an appealingly cute plot bunny. Just look at it washing it's whiskers, with one ear flopping cutely over one eye.

    But I couldn't do that one without it being slash.

    Maybe if no one else adopts it, MC, you can take it under your wing and corrupt the poor cute iddle thing.

    Meanwhile, I have another bunny. This one's from the Ba'al Appreciation Thread.

    In Summit/Last Stand we were introduced to a young man who served as Ba'al's lo'taur. His loyalty to his god was unwavering and reported Daniel's (asinine and suicidal) attempt to "convert" him.

    For someone who has been in Ba'al's service for years, the lo'taur seemed very young (the actor was around 25 at the time), leading me to wonder just how he'd come to be there, so I spun a theory:

    He's the son of one of Ba'al's enemies. Either he was kidnapped as an infant to serve as a warning to his father or he was rescued from the destruction/massacre of his father's house-hold and used as a warning to everyone else.

    Ba'al doesn't seem like the fatherly type to me, but I'm sure that he had a lot to say in regards to how the boy was raised/trained/indoctrinated. I'm figuring Ba'al was mostly just a distant presence, used more as a threat than anything. Intersperse occasional punishments with occasional moments of Ba'al showing his approval and that pretty much seals the brainwashing.

    Imagine what it would be like growing up with Ba'al as a father-figure. Yikes! What would that do to a kid? What must it have been like growing up under that shadow? And never once doubting that Ba'al was a god. Not even when Daniel explained the "truth" to him. How would THAT scene have played out, from the boy's perspective?

    Also, we know that Ba'al had a new lo'taur in Abyss, so what happened in between Last Stand and Abyss? Is he dead? Or did Ba'al keep his promise grant him "godhood"?

    If the boy is now host to a Goa'uld, does he regret what he's become, or does he well and truly believe he is blessed?

    If he died, was it because he failed, or because he gave his life to protect Ba'al?

    I wanted to write this plot bunny, but its been sitting idle in my head for about three months now.

    Okay the plot bunny went like this, the SGA team are exploring a planet when they run into a Wraith child, whose caretaker is a female human that looks around 50 or so. However, she is actually only 25, has been willingly feeding the child Wraith for a few years now, and has developed a maternal relationship with the kid as well.

    And the entire story was to evolve around the moral issues concerning what to do with the Wraith child, the opposing veiws that would arise, explore the idea that the Wraith aren't actually evil, but are just living creatures that want to live, and a team developing fic.

    However, I could never get the idea to evolve with in character characters.
