A term used mostly in FanFic circles for a story idea. The term comes from the notion that the idea will constantly gnaw at your brain until you write it, or from the fact that these story ideas tend to [[ExplosiveBreeder breed like rabbits]]. Maybe both. Sometimes, a fandom will use the in-universe [[CallARabbitASmeerp word for "bunny,"]] such as "plot gizka" for KnightsOfTheOldRepublic or "plot Papay" in Series/TinMan.

Yeah, that's the ticket, rabbits that gnaw while they breed! It could be a kind of horror thing... or maybe a romance... the tragic story of "Elmerus, the Bunny Who Could Not Gnaw", doomed to a life of loneliness, ridiculed by the lady bunnies...

Inspiration may come from {{Shipping}}, {{Crack Pairing}}s (taking pleasure in just making it plausible), or any ShipTease or HoYay left lying around. Even random phrases can spawn a plotbunny. For instance, Creator/LewisCarroll wrote the nonsense poem ''Literature/TheHuntingOfTheSnark'' backwards from the line "For the Snark was a Boojum, you see.", which popped into his head. He started wondering what a Snark was and why it shouldn't have been a Boojum, and who was seeking it...
