Chicken soup and hot tea and LOTS OF FIC cure a world of ills - I hope you're all starting to feel better! Jack and the Doctor have been calling in sick for a whole month, which means it's time to bring this challenge to a close. If you need one last dose of Doctor/Jack to cure what ails you, click the challenge: plague tag - or just go here.

You all are -fantastic-, absolutely so - I look forward to seeing what you come up with next month. (And I know for a fact we have two great challenges lined up for March and April.) So stock up on Vitamin C and make sure those plot bunnies stay healthy!

Challenge: Plague

Spoilers:  All New Who. Mentions of TW, but nothing much.

This came about when I decided to actually look up the dictionary definition for Plague, and it inspired me to tackle all the other meanings other than sickness!

Title: Love is the Cure
Author: [livejournal.com profile] sarkywoman
Challenge: Plague
Rating: NC-17
Spoilers: Set after 'Last of the Time Lords'. Not really anything for TW series 2.
Warnings: Sex, cliche, badness.
Summary: Cliched fic plot no.2, the only cure for the illness spreading through Torchwood is sex. And it has to be sex with a person of significant influence. An intergalactic booty call must be made to a certain Time Lord.
Notes: I wrote this fic of what I suspect is immensely poor quality solely to prevent the other 'Plague' plot making it to the page. I sat down and started to type a story where Jack gave the Doctor an STD and I thought 'No! I just can't do it!' And so this was born.

Love is the Cure )
 
 
Current Music: degenerate - Blink 182

[livejournal.com profile] wojelah said: "I propose a PLAGUE FIC CHALLENGE. Because EVERYONE seems to be sick right now - I'm just over some sort of death flu myself - and because the possibilities are pretty endless - from h/c to fluff to action/adventure."

I had the cold from hell too. Practically everyone at my workplace was sick too. So what better than to inflict the sickness on our favourite characters as well? Because we're evil that way. :D

So there you go: The Plague Challenge!

Think about it: Alien illnesses. Time Lord flu. Or, the most dangerous of all, those seemingly harmless things, children's diseases! The Doctor with measles. Jack with chickenpox. Who's taking care of whom? Can a Time Lord get the common cold? Can Jack get ill, if the illness is non-fatal? What about a real plague? Imagine someone who can't die in the midst of an epidemic.

Endless questions, endless options! As usual, these are just a few ideas to get you started. I'm sure you can come up with something even better! :D

As a gentle reminder, please don't crosspost stories for this challenge to other comms until the challenge closes. (Which, as usual, will be about one month from now.) And don't forget - leave a comment in THIS post and tell us what you think the next challenge should be!
