Welcome to the 2017 Pros BB Ideas post!  
Yes, it really is that time already! So, dear Pros fans, 'fess up and tell us all about the things you want to be reading in the 2017 Pros Big Bang.
We won't judge, so don't be shy!

Prompts:

• If you have a story prompt you’re dying to share, now's the time to air it. You can give as much, or as little, detail as you like, and all genres and pairings are welcome. It could be something simple, like:

Marty fancied Ray. Ray fancied Bodie. Bodie fancied fish and chips. It was going to be a long Friday.

Or something more complicated, like:

Marty fancied Ray. Ray fancied Bodie. Bodie fancied fish and chips. So how had they ended up manacled together in a warehouse in Wapping and staring at a bomb? It was going to be a long Friday.

Or even a little bit of a story, like:

Shrugging into his jacket, Doyle turned for the door, only to find his path blocked by his partner. He'd under-estimated how fast Bodie could move. People often did - under-estimated how silently and quickly he could move for a big bloke. Mis-spent youth, that, Doyle thought, and almost laughed at the irony. While Bodie had been fighting for his life as a mercenary in Africa, he'd been turning tricks for punters on behalf of the Derbyshire constabulary.
The memory sickened him.
'Ray, let's talk about this.'
Doyle hit him.
'Let's not.' People often under-estimated him too.
It was going to be a long Friday.


General thoughts/ideas/wishes/cravings:

• Maybe you don't have a story prompt. Maybe you just have a thought, wish, or craving you'd like to share, in which case, please post that as a comment. We'd love to hear your thoughts on what you'd like to see immortalised in Pros BB fic, vid and art this year! And you never know, you might just inspire one of our BB writers!

BB writers, feel free to take inspiration from any of the suggestions in the comments. If any particular idea takes your fancy, grab it and run!

My wish is totally hopeless: it's a Bodie/Cowley story, of course. Or, at least, a Bodie&Cowley centered story. With a positive view of Cowley, please. With a plot involving some moral dilemma in a social and political context (like "in the Public interest" or "Operation Suzie").

Hope springs eternal, so never say never! :-)
Thank you for putting this idea forward.

Well, of course, now I want your story... nothing I like better than a feisty Doyle laying into Bodie *g*

I likes me a bit of feisty Doyle too! Here's hoping someone is inspired by the prompt. :-)

Oh I didn't get to read this properly, yesterday, but now I'm looking at those excellent scenarios and grinning like a loon! :D

I'm especially fond of: Marty fancied Ray. Ray fancied Bodie. Bodie fancied fish and chips. So how had they ended up manacled together in a warehouse in Wapping and staring at a bomb? It was going to be a long Friday.

I so hope someone takes the bait!

We can but hope. :-)

Someone from Macklin's past in China is on a revenge campaign against him and kidnapped him. Bodie and Doyle are going to save him.
loxleyprince: Macklinloxleyprince on February 10th, 2017 07:50 pm (UTC)
That's an excellent suggestion! Here's hoping that one of our writers is inspired by it!

Edited to add: HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! Have a picture of Macklin. :-)

Macklin

I'd love to see a story set in the very, very early days of CI5, but - and this is the important thing - Bodie and Doyle don't hate each other. Instead, they're not that sure about each other, but they work together to solve a mystery during their training. I love stories where Bodie and Doyle are friends, rather than enemies because I *know* that they're going to be friends by the end.

(And also some Doyle's-in-trouble-Bodie-to-the-rescue please. :-P )
loxleyprince: CuddleAstoatloxleyprince on February 13th, 2017 04:11 pm (UTC)
Both excellent suggestions!
(I do so love a bit of Doyle's-in-trouble-Bodie-to-the-rescue, too. :-)
