New Weekly Challenge prompt! Support the fandom during hiatus by keeping the fic coming!

Weekly Challenge 019: Child

November Challenge Character: Boyd

November Challenge Situation: Insubordination


Now that we've seen what having a child did to Echo (meep!) and we know what Topher did to her to make her feel that way, what are the lasting effects? Does she still long for a phantom child she no longer remembers? Might this lead to her wanting to make a baby with someone in appropriate (which would be everyone essentially). Perhaps Caroline and Leo had plans for a clan or maybe they had a near miss that gave Caroline a crisis of conscience. Madeline was so distraught by the loss of her child she turned her life over to the Dollhouse. Now that her grief is gone will she still turn against the people who took her pain away? The dolls are child-like in their wiped state. Take us into their heads and show us the Dollhouse from their perspective - particularly if it's an awakening one. After all, Victor and Sierra are certainly having some adult feelings towards each other. ;-)

Remember all short fic is welcome here, even if it's a crosspost from another comm or not written for any challenge at all. Our goal is to be the go to comm for short fic in the fandom. Please review our Rules/Guidelines prior to posting.

New month! No show /frowns/ but new challenges!

Past prompts are always accepted so authors are welcome to write previous Weekly Challenges, Challenge Characters/Pairings and Challenge Situations at any time.

Weekly Challenge 018: Rebel

November Challenge Character: Boyd

November Challenge Situation: Insubordination


Rebel, rebel… The Dollhouse is rife with little rebellions. Take us with Claire as she flaunts her way through her escape from life as Doctor Doll. Go inside Topher's head when he rebels against orders to help Sierra right her wrongs. Give us Echo on an engagement as a rebellious bad girl who is irresistible to the man (or woman) paying for her naughtiness. How about some Natural Born Killers rebels in Alpha and Whiskey or persistent rebel Alpha as he plots his next stage of rebellion? Paul was a rebel in the FBI; now he's a spy in the house of love Dolls. Or share in the quiet rebellion of Victor and Sierra as they forge out a tiny space for their love in a place where they're not supposed to be more than children.

Boyd doesn't seem to be enjoying his new status as head of security much. Ethical dilemmas, wet work cleanup, office politics and having to watch Paul - a man he once fought to protect Echo from - get to be her most trusted handler in his place. Boyd may keep his own council, but we can read his mind in fic without Topher's chair! Is he harboring a secret crush on Claire? Does Echo remind him of a girl he failed to save as a cop? Is he plotting to bring Paul down even as Paul plots to bring the Dollhouse down? Or is he the new mole to replace Dominic?

Paul, well he was the picture of insubordination at the FBI: disobeying orders, causing incidents, using connections to get into files he wasn't supposed to have access to… Now we get to see him be insubordinate to Adele. (We all know that can't go well.) I imagine if he's insubordinate to Boyd a second fist fight might just break out. Topher's already disobeyed a direct order. Repercussions? What if he gets it into his head that he can say no now? Adele may not be ready for her genius to get headstrong. And what of Adele? What if she had stood up for Sierra to her higher ups? Would Boyd have had two bodies to deal with instead of one?

New Weekly Challenge prompt! Support the fandom during hiatus by keeping the fic coming!

Weekly Challenge 017: Haven

October Challenge Pairing: Echo/Paul

October Challenge Situation: System Glitches


After all she's been through, Priya really needs a haven. While Paul thought the Dollhouse was evil, both Priya and Madeline know they do something good for people: they help erase the pain. Hopefully Madeline has made a haven for herself in her new life, free of the grief of loss. But how safe can she be with the Dollhouse looming? Now that he's in the lion's den full time where does Paul go for a respite? Alpha's found a new haven where he can't be found; spy on him and see what he's up to. Now that Miss Lonelyhearts has been found out, how does Adele escape from the pressures of her work?

No new episode but a new Weekly Challenge prompt!

Weekly Challenge 016: Politics

October Challenge Pairing: Echo/Paul

October Challenge Situation: System Glitches


Senator Perrin's not the only one playing politics on the show - though his Capitol Hill grandstanding certainly made the management at the Dollhouse nervous. Adele's a master politician: playing diplomat with her higher ups, her staff and especially her clients. Dominic played politics and lost; will Boyd play and lose or play to win? Paul lost in the office politics game at the FBI, unable to conform to what the government expected of a good little agent. Even child-like Dolls can have childish politics from Victor vying for Sierra's attention or Alpha lashing out because he wanted Echo to be number one, not Whiskey. Finally, office politics got ugly in the war between Claire and Topher. Perhaps we've not seen her final volley in that battle.

Weekly Challenge 015: Guard

October Challenge Pairing: Echo/Paul

October Challenge Situation: System Glitches


Now that Paul is Echo's official handler it's his duty to guard the woman who once was and would be Caroline again. Only Boyd still seems to think that's his job - acting as her guardian once again at the drop of a hat. Give an active a job as bodyguard. Who wouldn't want Sierra kicking ass and taking names on their behalf? Adele is always guarded and keeps her own counsel - but who does she let her hair down with? Roger? Topher has safeguards on his systems, but things still go wrong and with alarming regularity. Whoever you like to write, have them let their guard down and show us the real person beneath - that is, if there is one…

New month! New challenges!

Past prompts are always accepted so authors are welcome to write previous Weekly Challenges, Challenge Characters/Pairings and Challenge Situations at any time.

Weekly Challenge 014: Conspiracy

October Challenge Pairing: Echo/Paul

October Challenge Situation: System Glitches


The Dollhouse is rife with conspiracy. After conspiring against them from the outside, now Paul is conspiring against them from the inside. Laurence conspired against them; look where he ended up. Senator Perrin has just been clued into the conspiracy surrounding the Dollhouse. He can't be so easily banished to the attic, what with his high-profile position and the eyes of the press on him. But just who sent him all that intel? Let's not forget Alpha's still out there conspiring against them, plotting his return.

In the mean time, Paul finally gets the woman who's been haunting his thoughts for months right where he wants her: hand in hand with him. Only she's still blank and the Caroline he saved is nowhere to be found. Will he regret his deal with the devil to keep her safe? Will his obsession with her cross the line and become sexual? What if they have a liaison during an engagement? Will she forget after she gets wiped or will this more aware Echo remember that feeling and seek out Paul for more once she's in her vulnerable Doll state? Is Paul strong enough to resist her? Or will he risk it all for a moment of fantasy made real? Show us Echo and Paul as active and handler, as comrades in arms or as lovers in each other's arms. Gen or het, any way you slice it, they're a pair now.

Into every well oiled machine a monkey wrench often gets thrown, ergo system glitches. We saw Topher's beloved bank of computers glitch when Claire decided to throw him for a loop. We've seen Echo glitch on a job, personalities mixing up in her mix-ed up head. Human error led to Echo's handler not believing her readings when she was injured. Now that Paul's her handler will be believe his eyes when the next system glitch occurs or his gut? Alpha's a walking system glitch and he really mucked things up when he hacked into their network. Whether you choose to show an engagement gone awry or an average day at the Dollhouse marred by a system gone wrong, get glitching and ficcing to share the possibilities.

Thank yous

New Season! New Weekly Challenge prompt! Now that the show’s airing again we’ll begin to have weekly prompts each week in addition to our Monthly Challenge Character/Pairings and Challenge Situation. It’s a great time to jump back into fic and nothing’s easier than short fic!

Weekly Challenge 013: Inside

September Challenge Character: Victor

September Challenge Situation: Remembering


Paul’s officially on the inside now, but what’s his real agenda? Laurence was once the ‘inside man’ at the Dollhouse. Who might his handlers recruit next to replace him? Claire’s as obsessed with what’s on the inside of her now as she was before with her outside appearance. As a Doll, Victor might not fully understand what happened to him; what’s going on in his head? (Other than having a major crush on Sierra?) Boyd’s further inside now than perhaps he intended. What are his regrets – other than having to turn over Echo’s safety to his former rival? Get horizontal with your favorite pairing and get inside their pants bedroom so we can be voyeurs like Adele and company.

Remember all short fic is welcome here, even if it's a crosspost from another comm or not written for any challenge at all. Our goal is to be the go to comm for short fic in the fandom. Please review our Rules/Guidelines prior to posting.
