The BtVS/Ats Crackficathon!

Image Source,Photobucket Uploader Firefox Extension


It seems to me we're due for some silliness in these our beloved BtVS/Ats fandoms. Crackfic to the rescue! Fanlore defines crack as "fiction with a fundamentally ludicrous premise, or otherwise including a plethora of unbelievable, incredible, or just plain silly elements - that is, implying the author/artist must have been on drugs to produce something so insane."

So what cracky thing have you been pining for? Wingfic? Genderswap? Or maybe it's time someone wrote the fic where it really is bunnies! Whatever your crack of choice, here's the chance to read and write glorious crack for the gloriously cracky shows we love.


THINGS TO KNOW:
* Prompt fills can be one sentence, three sentences, a drabble, a ficlet, or any other length you feel moved to write.

* If your fill is too long for one comment, you're welcome to post it to your own journal and just post a link here.

* Crack often tends towards the fluffy, light-hearted side of things, but it totally doesn't have to. You want to angst that bodyswap prompt 'til it can't angst no more? Be our guest! Giggles and grief are both welcome here.

* I've turned comment notifications off on this entry, so if you have questions, feel free to reply to the question thread below.

* ETA: I've been calling this the crackficathon because I personally am ficcishly as opposed to graphically inclined, but some of these prompts are just begging for art. So if you're feeling the urge to fill a prompt with art instead of fic? I'm pretty sure NO ONE WILL MIND.


PROMPTING:
* Prompt format: [characters] - [type of crack requested] - [OPTIONAL - additional prompt (word, phrase, song lyric, etc)]

* In the title line of your fic reply, indicate [title, characters, type of crack, rating]


MASTERLIST
The masterlist of completed works is here.


SO WHAT COUNTS AS 'CRACK' ANYWAY?
Below the cut is a quick-and-dirty list (partially culled from the list of fic cliches over at the DW fanbingo comm) to help get you thinking in the right direction. Really, though, if you think something is cracky? We probably ain't going to disagree with you. Go wild!

Crossover with Parks and Recreation - Leslie decides that since the last penguin marriage was a rousing success (er...didn't turn out too bad) to do it again. Only this time the penguins are Buffy and Spike, and of course things get out of hand.

THAT'S RIGHT. PARKS AND REC SPUFFY PENGUIN FIC.

Too Meta? - Leslie and Joan on Buffy/Spike vs Buffy/Angel - PG
"Good morning! Here on Pawnee Today we have Parks and Recreation Deputy Director Leslie Knope on our show to account for the travesty of a marriage that took place yesterday. Leslie, what explanation do you have for the citizens of Pawnee?"

Leslie blinked at the camera. "Well, I don't think it was a 'travesty', Joan."

Joan flashed a huge smile. "Of course it was! You presided over a clearly immoral and unpatriotic ceremony - "

"It was two penguins," Leslie cut in. "Penguins. I married them, and they were a boy and a girl this time."

"Yes, but the boy! When the keepers and regular zoo-goers can tell you that the girl penguin - Buffy - had been destined for a legally-bound commitment to another, much better, penguin, Angel."

"Well, I have it on good authority that the penguin I married to Buffy, Spike, is a fine, upstanding example of penguinery."

"Upstanding?" Joan let out a chortle of a laugh before looking directly at the camera. "We have some YouTube footage of Spike the Penguin taking part in Satanic cannibalistic rituals after hours at the zoo. Roll it!"

Leslie watched as fifteen seconds of grainy blackness with penguin-shaped blobs danced across the screen. When she noticed the cameras back on her, she looked back to Joan. "Oh. You know, I...I think I saw Angel in that clip. Didn't you? In the background with the...robe?"

Joan gave her a no-nonsense look. "Don't be ridiculous, Leslie. Angel would never take part in cannibalism. He has a shoal of fish to eat. Now we're gonna be back after these commercials to talk about how this wedding between Buffy and Spike spells doom for all of Pawnee."
