plot bunnies and characters

Oh Merlin did I get bit by a plot bunny last night as I was going to sleep. Our cabins at camp are divided into two room by really nothing more than pieces of plywood. Then there are three bunk beds per room. My bunkmates and I had our lights out and were settling in for the night while the gals next door were still up and talking. As you can imagine, we can hear pretty much every word as clear as if they were in the room with us. When they turn out the light, one of them said "there, I think I'm in my bed" and boom, plot bunny attack. I swear to god, I was lying face down on my bed with my face buried in my pillow trying not to laugh out loud and wake everyone up. It's gonna be a CM fic and I'll put it up on WWOMB when its done, along with a couple of other things I'm working on in the CM universe.

Like I don't have enough going on. *rolls eyes and glares at snickering bunnies*

Now for the second thing. Can I ask your help?? I need some British characters I can make into dragons. I have one but I'd like to put him in the novel first and then bring him in here. But I'm so excited by the idea that I was literally bouncing when I told my dad about it.
So I was thinking TV or movies or books or something that I can have some overseas communities. I watched a little of "The Bill" when I was in London so I might be able to use a couple of characters there.
And, honestly, I suppose if you'd like to see dragons in your country as well, let me know. Might as well keep expanding the universe while I'm at it. I don't promise as much about them as I have for the current dragons, but they'll be in there. *Grin*
That reminds me, what do you (those who have them) think of freeweb's service? I've been debating a page there for a while now.

Thanks for your help in advance everyone. *hugs*

British characters I can make into dragons. *Flails*
How about Jack/Ianto from Torchwood? Extra plus their relationship is canon :D (see icon) but um other than that I couldn't tell you, seems everything I watch is American.

And I can't make freewebs work when I try signing up but those I know tht have it are pretty happy

For starters: James Bond, and any of the Harry Potter characters. Also, I use to watch two series: Wire in the Blood (like Criminal Minds), the lead character is part genius (like Spencer Reid) and part mentally scary (think Bobby Goren, L&O Criminal Intent). The other show is MI5, which is the UK version of the FBI (I think). The team leader is pretty hot. Finally, I don't remember if it's strictly Brit, but Michael from La Femme Nikita...

I've already done Snape and Harry as dragons in another story so I think I'd stay away from them. :)
I'll do some digging and see what I can come up with for the ones you mentioned. I need to find them - either DVD or online to watch.

Torchwood sounds really familiar for some reason. I wonder if I've seen the DVDs here in the states. I'll have to do some research on it.

How about Primeval> ITV's Dinosaur action show.

You could have Nick/Stephen or Nick/Connor. Loads of Primeval communities plus there is a bonus, BBC America is going to show the program soon and they have a web page up. Plus there is the whole Dinosaur connection that would be interesting to work in and if your dragon changed and someone saw him they could pass it off as having come through an anomaly...

I'll check out the links. :) Thanks for providing them along with the suggestion. And ITV might have some of the other shows as well. *crosses fingers*

British Characters and Slash
One stop you might find helpful is the www.britslash.co.uk site this does have lots of potential bunnies in cages. One being the short lived New Professionals Series (with Edward Woodward and Lexa Doig) Nice potential between the ex MI6 Sam Curtis and ex Navy SEAL Chris Keel.

You could try www.ci5ops.co.uk for more info on them.

Other International type Dragons that I can think of You have Carson and Zelenka on Stargate Atlantis (and the always slash worthy McKay/Sheppard Shep's Beta to Jack's Alpha?)

Plus not sure if House would be eligible played by the Brit Hugh Laurie with Aussie Jesse Spencer on the show.

Hope this helps rather than confuses

Re: British Characters and Slash
Y'know, I love House. I just can't get into the show, which saddens me because I do love him. Maybe I just like snark.
I will definately check out the web pages and see what bunnies are lurking around.
And I came up with a pair that I'd been asked to do in another series and couldn't work in. They're in London so it'll work.
