Gibbs/Ducky: Forever

30 Days of Fandom Meme Day 20

20 – Do you ever get bunnied from other people's stories or art in the same fandom?

This happened a time or two when there were several of us writing Gibbs/Ducky stories on a regular basis. Several of us used to find something in a fellow writer's story gave us a spark of an idea for a story of our own.

In fact several of us once wrote a series of stories sparked from each other's stories. I started the series and someone asked if she could write a companion story/sequel to it. I said 'yes, of course', and found that her story sparked another idea, so I wrote the next part. And then another couple of members asked if they could write a part, and so what was planned to be a stand alone story turned into a ten part mini-series.

It has also happened a couple of times where I have been 'bunnied' into new pairings, based on someone else's story - pairings I had never considered before. It happened in NCIS with several slash and het pairings.

It also happened in Sapphire & Steel. I  was hunting for MFU fiction and came across a Silver/Steel story on an author's website. I had never considered the pairing, but I read the story and instantly the bunnies started hopping and bouncing and reproducing as bunnies do *g*
