Dear Not Primetime Writer

My Dear, Adored Not_Primetime Writer,

Welcome to my journal. Glad you've come. Have a chair, sit down, enjoy the scenery. I've tried not to be too difficult in my requests, but it's hard to tell sometimes.

I'm very easy to write for, I promise. I like canon (especially the weird obscure bits), snark and witty banter (as you might be able to tell from my choice of characters), capers and proper adventures, characterization pieces, crossovers. I'd rather not have anything above PG-13 - though I don't mind shipping (het/femslash/slash are all fine, incestuous pairings, not so much), I'm not really in this for the smut and I'd prefer that all of the characters stayed alive. As you may guess by my choice of fandoms and characters, I am fond of cheesy plots, snark and witty banter (see above) and couples having amazing adventures together. Feel free to take advantage of this.

Beta-readers are your friends - please do check for grammar, spelling and scientific accuracy (as far as you can). Historical accuracy too - if you're doing historical Doctor Who or West Wing contemporaneous to the series, please don't assume they had access to the same technology we do now. While I do have three Doctor Who fandoms requested, that doesn't mean you should weigh that fandom above West Wing. Andy and Toby always make me happy.

Doctor Who (Big Finish Audio)
Deela (Doctor Who), Vislor Turlough

We get hints of Turlough's and Deela's past in Kiss of Death and I'd really like to see more. This is the easy one, if you're familiar with Doctor Who. One audio, easily available as hard copy or mp3 download from Big Finish. I still live in hope that they'll do more with Turlough's past, but until then, I have you, dear writer.

Doctor Who (1963)
Sarah Jane Smith, Vislor Turlough

Can be set any time in either of their lives, with or without any of the Doctors. Just go ahead and have fun with them meeting/teaming up/distrusting each other/etc.

I can think of so many scenarios for this - one or both of them while they're travelling with the Doctor, Turlough coming back to Earth post-series, Sarah Jane visiting the Brigadier at St. Brendan's. Have fun with this one.

West Wing
Andrea Wyatt, Toby Ziegler

I love Andy & Toby either as friends or romantically involved. Pre- or post- babies.

Maybe having Toby dealing with the fallout from the events that led to his resignation. They were my ship on the show and we never saw enough of them being awesome together.

Doctor Who - Various Authors
Bernice Summerfield, Jason Kane

I love their on again, off again, love/hate full of snark relationship. Feel free to bring in audio canon if you wish, but I'd be just as happy with a story set during the NAs.

Benny having to rescue Jason is always a good choice for a story or perhaps you want to have Jason rescuing Benny for once.
