PLOTTING TR STYLE

So, I'm thinking about submitting a plot to TR for the Doctor because come on, it's the Doctor and he's bored. BUT I need a)HELP PLOTTING and b)people. I think I want to get the rough idea out first, then submit it to the mods and then (if approved) open it up to the island. SO THIS IS THE ROUGH PLOTTING IDEA, I haven't run it through the mods yet so it could still be a no but because actual plot plot (rather than character arcs) are not my thing I figured I'd probably need help with it before I got to the submitting stage.

SO WITHOUT FURTHER ADO...



DON'T BLINK. BLINK AND YOU'RE DEAD.


One stormy night in the future, a large piece of space junk falls from space lighting up the sky with a fierce burning red before crashing beyond the fence into dinosaur territory. The effect is felt from the loud boom to the slight shaking of the earth. Seeing this, the Doctor decides to go and investigate (potentially taking with him OTHERS). When they finally get to the crash site of the fallen space junk, what they actually find is a small ship- an escape pod where the door has torn and been clawed open. Something was inside, something was inside the ship and had now escaped.

While the Doctor tries to find out what happened to the ship, examining the wreckage and the black box for details. That is when the angel appears. Not to the Doctor but in EP's or threads. Just an angel statue in the middle of the jungle, covering its eyes. Nothing unusual. Perhaps even hiding in plain sight in Johnny Maxwell's graveyard. The Doctor finally figures out what is happening because of something written down "It's Behind You." which is a warning from an old High Gallifreyan children's story about the angels.

Running back to the compound, he uses the emergency broadcast to broadcast a radio message to the islanders "DON'T BLINK" and the warning about the angels. That's you know when people could realise that they are in fact in danger from that ever so innocent seeming angel statue. AND ON TOP OF THAT IT'S GETTING DAAAAARK. People could mod the angel around or I could even play it for them, getting closer and quicker.

There could be a few different plots running through it:
-Angels going for the TARDIS. (The possible natural conclusion for the plot.)
-Angels attacking technology that could destroy them.
-Angels trying to reproduce (the image of an angel is an angel itself)
-Angels infecting islanders (10... 9.... 8...)
-Angels attacking and also being destroyed or contained (MIRRORS but well placed mirrors as they can reproduce through mirrors yeaaaah creepy ass motherfuckers)

I think if no one wanted to be involved, it could be possibly either contained to the second island OR alternatively have safe havens opened up for people. There would be a limited number of angels I'm thinking 3-5 (ONE IS DEADLY ENOUGH LET ME ASSURE YOU but like then it wouldn't be a whole swarm and people could escape the plot reasonably.) And like contain it to a weekend so that at the end of the weekend or plot all the angels vanish again but the crash site remains.

So, I don't know what do you guys think? Do you think it's something you'd be interested in getting involved in? Does it excite you? Can you see problems with it? Any kinks that I can work out before submitting it?

-Christina, for the Doctor.

Angels on the island sounds fucking terrifying. Obviously Dari and Spot are in. (Also, SPOT DOES NOT HAVE TO CLOSE HIS EYES. Just sayin'.)

Yes, they're nightmare fuel.

It's probably best to tell him that right away! He says they can't kill him and he can watch them, HE IS SUPER!SPOT AND WILL SAVE THE DAY.

Not a mod in this context but I think this is an awesome idea that I HOPE wouldn't happen until I've got Stiles IG.

I'd love to participate! Count me in. I volunteer Nyana to be infected as that could be for all the feels (for Nick or Coulson, perhaps).

I submitted a similar idea years back, but I made it WAAAY too complicated to use. I suggested a mass attack, and that Islanders could be sent back in time to meet disappeared pups . Simpler is better.

Being a sucker for drama, I'd love to have Nyana spend some time keeping her eyes closed. For all the feels.

And the nightmares start ... now. :)

Which is to say, yes, totally, sounds fun!

I love this idea. (Though Moffat has made the angels so complex that I might need a brush up.)

Topher might actually know what he's doing! Though, presuming he got a chance to watch, he would have only been up to "Blink", not any of the rest - he's yanked from canon at the end of 2009.

(Grantaire will be completely in the dark, so to speak, which is even more entertaining perhaps.)

I love this idea! Hate the angels.

Also I was thinking about bringing a pup who might be awesome to time with this storm. I was thinking he needed to have just such a debut.

Love the safe zones. Or contained to a certain area might be easier. Or both? But I really love the idea of angels tagging EPs! YIKES! Creeeeeepy. Kind of like NPCs during Halloween.

Unrelated, and down the road a bit, but I'm hoping to bring back a pup that will need the "You call yourself a doctor" speech. Have not thought it out at all, but it occurred to me yesterday. And was very much hoping for an indignant Doctor who is always fun to watch. Just thought I'd plant that little seed too. ;D
