i) A sign on a shelf reading 'General + Outsize Royalty'. That'll be Henry VIII and George IV, then.
ii) Various romance novels, whose titles I noted pursuant to later googling them and adding the summaries to the generator. I decided to start with The Case of the Accidental Heiress
. I put it in the generator, and it went all psychic on me straight away.
475) The Case of the Accidental Heiress by Victoria Pade
The Case: An accidental heir.
The Client: the Second Doctor was dead. At least, that's what everyone told him. But as he pursed his lips and moved his muscles, he knew he was very much alive. . . And in a heap of trouble!
The Detective: Sensuous, long-legged Polly Wright had rescued many a swain in distress. But this new client. . . Despite his enormous inheritance and his gorgeous body, he was simply nuts - or about to pull off an incredible scam! How could the Second Doctor expect her to believe that he had been switched - heart and soul into another man's body?
For those who like old-style telephones and live in the UK, I can recommend half an hour of James May reassembling one.
I've had the lid off a couple of dial telephones to fit conversion kits for the modern plug-and-socket system, but I certainly didn't reduce them to their component parts. A lot of it was quite familiar, though.
Because I'm a glutton for punishment, I wrote drabbles for all the
General thoughts: With Doctor Who characters and some of
the prompts, it's difficult to distinguish an AU setting from actual canon.
So, once or twice, I took the prompt as 'Divergence in a broadcast story that used
this trope'. And as for '…In SPACE!!', I did it by making the characters
natives of other sci-fi settings.
I think 'Harem' may have been intended to refer to the Harem Genre, rather than an
actual collection of concubines. I hope so, anyway. Though since I've never
watched such an anime, it doesn't actually make my task that much easier.
romanajo123 prompted 'Eight/Grace (or if you want, Eight&Lucie)'. I chose Eight and Lucie.
( Eight and Lucie )
lost_spook prompted 'Ben/Polly'. Of course, some of them
came out more gen than shippy, but that's an occupational hazard in
works of this size.
( Ben/Polly )
liadtbunny prompted 'Doctor/Romana'.
( Doctor / Romana )
