/who/'s third second point fifth community anthology of short stories, Shit Trips: Vol. 2.5 is a /who/-driven effort to prevent the general devolving into constant shitposting until Series Dubs in late 2018.

Following the success of Shit Trips: Vol 2, the book club project reviewing (nearly) every story in that collection, and the great amounts of creativity and ambition in that collection, more and more /who/res were inspired to write. Thus, the idea of a collection to be written between the the large gap between Series 10 and 11, focusing less on "main" Doctors and more on companions, alternate Doctors, spinoffs, and other bits of Doctor Who that fall through the cracks began to bubble up. A collection even more obscure than, well, Shit Trips.

Submissions open on Christmas, and end on April Fools' right the fuck now. Neo and Immigrant posted the reminders to contribute, Neo collated the thing, Guy With An Art Degree created the excellent cover to your right, but it's the great legion of authors, anon and trip alike, that make up Shit Trips.
