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!

“Hello, my name is Harmony! I used to be a cheerleader but now I am a vampire. Which is cool and all because you get to be young forever, only now I don’t get to be tan and pasty skin sucks, like, a lot. Also, I really like unicorns but I think that might be kinda weird now cuz they basically have this big pointy stake attached to their head but I don’t think it’s made out of wood so I’d probably be safe if I ever met one in person but I’m probably gonna have to get rid of all my collectibles and I have some really adorable ones. Also, I was thinking that I really have got to, like, give myself a total makeover. I was totally a Spring/Summer but maybe I should reconsider that and try out the Winter palette, except it’s soooo much black, you know? And I just don’t think that black leather is exactly my look, although you should see my boyfriend he’s totally hot, well, y’know, for a vampire, does that make him totally cold instead? He has this awesome leather coat but he never lets me touch it, and it’s so soft and he totally got it off this Slayer that he killed a really long time ago. And… I’m sorry, what was that Mr. Angel, sir? Do I know who Willow is? Yes, she is the lesbian, which of course, is totally awesome, go her, but not really for me cuz there would just be too much competition with another woman and how would I know what to do… and… yes, sir, I understand. Yes, I agree, this isn’t funny, not at all, not in the least bit. Yes, sir, I am powering down now, thank you sir.”

*snort*

Hehehe! Poor Angel, a robo-powered Harmony on overdrive! She's definitely still a Spring, btw. No?

I am sadly very much amused at Harmony's summing up of lesbianism....

I wonder who commissioned her?

no one ever suspects...
excerpt from phone call after The Harmonybot Incident:

"No, Buffy, I swear, I got rid of all the programming manuals after we left Sunnydale! I don't know who could have possibly done such a wonder....errr.. horrible thing to Angel!"
"Absolutely... I agree. We should definitely look into the possibility whether Willow has been.. ah... yes, I will certainly let know if I hear anything."
Giles hung up the phone and chuckled softly to himself.
