Looking through the archives at the BBC’s On This Day, I find the following:


1st April 1957: Panorama - the famous Spaghetti Harvest documentary

27th March 1963: Dr Beeching presents his first report on reducing the railways

29th March 1981: The first London Marathon took place


Plus, obviously, it’s Easter this weekend.



So for this week I’ve chosen the prompts:

April Fool’s Day

Public Transport

Run For Your Life

Easter Eggs



As usual, don’t wait for me - if you’re inspired, go for it! It's quite all right to use the original historical event as a prompt if that suits you better.

Post your drabble as a comment to this post, and if you have any ideas for future seasonal prompts, let me know by PM. I may also use the occasional completely random prompt if something occurs to me.

The rules are minimal - One hundred words exactly, and be polite when commenting!
You can write any fandom or original fiction, any pairing or none.
You don’t have to write in English if you don’t want to.


Please note that if you do choose to write in another language, I can't promise to comment beyond a simple "Thank You", although I will do my best via Google! A rough translation would be lovely, but is not essential. The translation does not have to be 100 words, nor does it need to be polished or “good English”. Just the gist is fine, to put across the idea.

And don’t forget, as long as you are confident that your response meets one of the prompts, that’s good enough for me.

Hi again, and welcome to the second Seasonal and Topical Drabble Thingy!

I’ve been having a look at the BBC’s On This Day pages for the week Sunday 31st January to Saturday 6th February. A couple of stories stood out for me, and they’re giving us this week’s prompts.

In 1953, on February 5th, sweets finally came off wartime rationing in the United Kingdom.
In 1974, on February 5th, the newspaper heiress Patti Hearst was kidnapped in California, US.
In 1983, on 31st January, seatbelts became compulsory in the UK in most circumstances.

So the prompts this week are:
Sweet(s)
Seatbelts
Kidnapping
Stockholm Syndrome


I hope you can find some inspiration somewhere in there!

I’ll be having a go after the school run, but in the meantime, if you’re interested, have at it!

Oh, and I should mention, so long as you are confident that your response meets one of the prompts, that’s good enough for me.

Title: I Win

Author: DorsetGirl

Fandom: Doctor Who

Disclaimer: I don’t own these characters or their universe, the BBC do. I’m not making any money out of this.

Word Count: 180

Notes: Gen or slash, depending on your viewpoint

Author’s Note: This is my first Doctor Who fanfic; I normally write Life on Mars. I wanted to do something quite a lot longer than this, but I already have three long fics for Life on Mars eating my brain, so this is it for now.
