Where No Woman Has Drabbled Before

Inspired by yahtzee63's fabulous Journey to Drabble, I bring you the where_no_woman drabble challenge. I hope this will inspire our whole community to produce more fiction about ST's many fierce and fabulous female characters. Rules are below, and prompts are under the cut.

1) Prompts are not exclusive. There is no limit on the number of people who may write about a prompt, and there is no need to claim prompts.

2) Post responses in the comments and include the number & name of your prompt in the subject line. If the story is too long for comments, you may post it elsewhere and comment with the link.

3) Responses may be any length from a proper 100-word drabble to a multi-chapter epic.

4) There is no time limit for this challenge.

5) Although I did not post any pairing-specific prompts, this is not exclusively a gen fic challenge. If a romantic relationship will help illuminate the identity of your character, please feel free to write about one.

6) Please leave feedback, respond to feedback, and pimp this post around.

Edited to add: I updated the prompt list with a link to each response so that you can browse for stories about the prompts that interest you. Feel free to continue writing, especially if you want to answer unfilled prompts. Indexing is complete as of 7/04/09. You're welcome to continue responding if you like, but I will not be updating the index again.


These prompts focus on Reboot characters, with a couple TOS thrown in, like Nurse Chapel and Number 1. If someone would like to make a separate challenge post for characters from other series, I'm sure our moderator sainfoin_fields would let you.

yahtzee63 provided the helpful information that the former Mrs. McCoy was called Jocelyn Treadway in TOS. Although I hate reducing a woman to the name of her ex-husband, I was afraid to call her anything else in the prompts for fear that people wouldn't know who she was. But, it's good to know that she has a name!

Have fun!
