So I've been thinking a lot about this prompt
on the b_e anon meme - are we allowed to talk about prompts? I guess so, this isn't fight club I think, also it's not really an 'I claaaaiiimm thiissssss you guiz' thing*, so I can't see it being a drastic problem. (also I think maybe aralias
did it once and she's like, one of the pillars of fandom, so it's totally ok right?) But anyway I'm very surprised how much it's caught my attention, and I want someone to fill it a lot.
My brain immediately jumped to Eight/Roberts, which I think I might sketch either way because I just want Eight on a spinny chair and accidentally making his computer explode and the Master being very very puzzled and yet intrigued. Which are all within arting parametres, so I can do that. But people should write fiiiiic, like Four being an artistic consultant for Ainley's thriving business of some kind or One having to go into the family business because
he's incapable of holding down a job
that's what you do and being introduced to his brother's star employee. Ok, that's just me wanting an excuse for Brax/Doctor office interactions. (Um. Not slash. Incest: I don't ship it.) But clearly Five and Ainley would be Epic Boardroom Rivals with their vying presentations of ... stuff. Or stock brokers. (I am hampered here by not really knowing How Business Works) and Three and Delgado need to run/work in a business/division together. Being biffles.
I feel bad leaving Crispy out, but I don't know how not to do the trite 'I am the head of a business empire who was in a horrible skiing accident and I see such potential in you and we are going to have a doomed romance where I teach you to harness your unpredictable genius and succeed in business and probably I will die at the end.' Which would be unsatisfying.
Anyway, I like the consultant idea enough that I'm using it again, because the War Chief needs to be the head of some division in the corporate empire he works for and he needs to bring in Two to .... idk. Be scientific advisor? Advisor for Awesome? To defeat a rival in winning some contract and then their methods clash and. Yeah. Alternatively you can have Two as the slightly out-of-touch, older, yet incredibly loyal 'has-been-with-the-company-forever' middle-management dude who has a young, up-and-coming employee/external consultant assigned to him to help spruce the place up because THEY DON'T WANT TO FIRE YOU TWO BUT YOUR OLD-FASHIONED WAYS ARE LOSING THEM MONEY. And then conflict and awesome and so on. And it may sound strange but I want
something to play on their apparent ages a bit with those two, because one of the nicest things about WC!Master is how hungry
he is, he's incredibly ambitious and cocky and very very young and it's awesome. And people should do things with that.
Um. There's been lots of 'no YOU'RE the boss!' types here, but Six and Ainley should clearly have equivalent positions (that they're both very good at) in the same department. Except Six is always going on about his TORTURED ARTIST temperament and is a touch offputting, which normally I wouldn't go with because I think he probably could have a lot of friends if he wanted to, but it's more important to have Ainley be really friendly and gregarious and funny and friends with practically EVERYONE. Of course he'd also be a touch of a bully, and Six would be one of his biggest targets in a 'oh isn't he a weirdo' lulz around the water cooler. And then, idk, Six has a really
absurd sekrit hobby, like Amateur Mime Shakespeare - totally
into it, wears black and white and paints his face and does INCREDIBLY OVERDRAMATIC MOVES EVERYWHERE in total deathly silence, and bursts into shouting as soon as the scene's done 'WALLACE! WHAT HAVE I TOLD YOU WALLACE! MORE LIFE
! OPHELIA SHOULD HAVE VIM
!' Clearly everyone in the troupe would be terrified of him, because actually he and Ainley are not that different, but also sort of adore him because he is a Passionate Artiste yo. ... I don't even know where this would end up but I've seen enough romcoms to know that clearly
it would be hilarious in every single way. Clearly.
Dear God what is wrong with me?
(No really, it's a show about a dude with a magic police box! WHY DO I WANT TO STRAND HIM SO MUCH.)
*well I think I might end up doing something for it but it's an art response which, when it's me and not someone else, I don't think of as a real response. And someone should do more art/fic for this. Is what I think.
