Doctor Who FanFic made with AI Assistance

The following stories were created using the AI tool Chat GPT. Donna and the Bubbles was the result of only two prompts. Claudia was live-streaming experiments with the AI and the audience requested she create a story with Doctor Who. She asked them for a companion and a noun. They chose Donna and the bubbles on her screen saver. The Star Trek Doctor Who crossover fanfic is pure first draft and reads more like an outline or treatment than a short story. It’s still a fun read and resembles some of the stories you might find on Archive of Our Own (AO3) the fanfic archive. The Chat GPT was only trained on a limited number of “main characters” so we had to train them on Bill Potts, Nardol and others. It also didn’t really understand the relationships between characters so we ended up entering in a lot of prompts to find results. Claudia edited stories from the results of multiple prompts. The results are 10 stories that are fun to read and were quite a lot of fun to create.
