Fest: There really is no other fest for me: The Doctor Who Minor Characters Ficathon. This fest encapsulates the entire reason I write fanfic: I want to revisit the characters that make DW so vibrant. While the Doctor and companions are the heroes and the focus, to me the thing that sets this type of storytelling - the whole 'go to a new place/time every episode' format - apart from other shows are the people they meet. Those are the people I really want to learn more about and that is entirely what this ficathon is about.
Community: My writing's dropped off a lot in the past couple of years, and one of the things that keeps me at least in the shallow end of the pool is the Doctor Who Fanfiction Contest. It features a writing prompt every three weeks, then readers vote on the entries and winner receives a pretty banner. The community kickstarts my proverbial pen. Participation has dropped off in the last year, since DW hasn't been on the air, but hopefully the new season (which just started with a bang!) will help it along. If you write in the DW universe, please come join us!
Please join us at who_contest for monthly fanfiction challenges based on the popular British sci-fi hit Doctor Who and all its spin-offs.
