I'm reading about them and writing about them, so I thought, why not just succumb completely and have some fun with them as well? I've signed up for [livejournal.com profile] doctorwho_100 . 100 stories about one "character" on 100 predefined themes.

I've chosen The Adherents of the Repeated Meme, who make their sole appearance in "The End of the World." My interest is not in the literal characters (who are remote controlled robots bearing Trojan Horses), but in their character as revealed by the Doctor:

When you stop to think about it, a repeated meme is just an idea and that’s all they are, an idea....A nice little cover for the real troublemaker.

Maybe I'm weird, but this is my idea of fun--writing 100 (v. short) stories about 100 dangerously applied ideas.
