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!

Genderswap Bodyswap / Bodyshare Age Regression Fusion with Another Fandom Cracky Crossovers Crack Pairings

Relative dimensions in space, part 1/2
[S6 Doctor Who spoilers]

So, she's being stalked by a leggy redhead, okay. She'd been stalked by worse things. She takes out her cell and considers calling in the cavalry, but it kinda goes against her ideals of pacifism and sororal autonomy.

She grips her phone and turns sharply.

"What do you want? If you're thinking of holding me hostage, you should know that kind of thing never ends well."

"No," says the girl. She's around Dawn's age and dressed for California, not Chicago. "Nothing like that. I just, you need to come with me. It's - I need a favour."

"Define favour."

"I need you to stick your hand somewhere, okay?"

Dawn blushes, then leers (it's her new defense mechanism, she got it from Spike.) "Does that pickup line work in Scotland?"

Her stalker glares and starts drawling sarcastically, which, okay, hot. "My husband and my best friend have been kidnapped by my daughter, who doesn't know who they are yet and has been brainwashed to hate them by a secret alien organisation since birth. I can't get into my bloody spaceship without you and I don't know how I'll save them anyway, except by going back in time, except that may rip the universe apart again. My name is Amy Pond and I snogged Elvis once, and it's not like you believe me, so -" she's holding out a gun (when even did she take it out "please just come with me."

Dawn looks at the gun, then at the purple rings under Amy's eyes. Aliens. Huh.

"Okay. I'll come with you. Put that down." Amy does, weirdly, and Dawn sees she's shaking. "Your daughter, huh? Evil toddler?"

Amy glares, like she knows she's being humoured, then shrugs. "Time travel. Wacky fun for everyone. Just - come with me, okay? I need to think."

Dawn follows, weighing her odds. If Amy's crazy - well, there's always the cavalry, or at least they can avenge her. If Amy isn't...

"Good kisser?"

"Hmm?"

"Elvis. Was he a good kisser?"

"Not really. Too much drool. Van Gogh was way better."

"Yeah?"

"Yeah. It's kind of a secret though."

"Safe with me."

Novembers are cold in Chicago. Dawn sinks her hands in her pockets and wishes she could give Amy a hat or something.

The spaceship is a box, and Dawn's kinda discouraged. But she touches it where Amy tells her to. There's nothing, for a moment, and it's kinda tense because what if Amy goes on a rampage, but then something green happens and Dawn's falling...

Re: Relative dimensions in space, part 2/2


There's something gold swirling, and it says:

"Hello, I'm Sexy."

"I'm Dawn," Dawn says. "I was Dawn. I... may be Dawn?"

"Tenses suck," says Sexy with feeling. "You opened me. Did you mean to do that?"

"I don't know. I don't think so. What are you?"

"I'm Sexy. I'm - everything you are, but I close too. You just open. Like dawns. They're sunsets backwards. Tesnus. What are you backwards?"

That's an easy one. "Umad!" Then, things come back. "Where am I? Where's Amy?"

"Amy is the orange one?"

"I guess? She said - her daughter kidnapped her husband? And there was an alien sect or something."

"Oh! The Doctor is in the River. I guess now is when that is. Look, I'll put you back into your shape - tell Amy I will take care of it. She will get instructions. As long as you keep touching me, I can do that."

"I'm touching you?"

The question comes out of her mouth - Dawn has a mout again. She has hands, and they're on something flat and warm and she's standing in something futuristic in a steampunk sort of way and Amy's hovering by her shoulder.

"Sexy says you'll get instructions," Dawn tells her. "She says it'll be all right. Where the fuck am I?"

"Spaceship. Timeship. Blue box. Hold on." Amy's concentrating and grinning now. She does look insane, but maybe not in a bad way. She runs her had all over the console thing and breathes "Thank you, Sexy." Then, looking up, "Thanks, Dawn. Just... stay here. Like that. With your hands there. I'll be back, with the Doctor and he'll explain."

Dawn's the little sister, she's good at waiting.

"You'll explain everything," she commands, because she's good at that too.

"I will," Amy says, brushing her shoulder. "I just need to save the world first."

"Oh, what else is new," Dawn mutters, then: "Hey, good luck with that."

Amy grins at her and runs away, still unfairly gorgeous.

"Just you and me, Sexy," Dawn says, and her hands are warm and tingling. "Wanna play I Spy?"

As it turns out, time-and-space browsing entities aren't all that good at I Spy, but totally win at hangman, and, amazingly, it's still not the most surreal two hours of Dawn's life.

Re: Relative dimensions in space, part 2/2
YAY! It worked for you! I've been shipping Amy/Dawn (and Amy/Dawn/Gunn) for a while now, so this prompt was basically THE PROMPT OF MY WILDEST DREAMS. And I also always kinda wanted the Tardis and Dawn bonding at energy-level. In conclusion, THIS PROMPT IS FANTASTIC, AS ARE YOU. <333333333333

Re: Relative dimensions in space, part 2/2
I'm barely familiar with Who-verse via Torchwood -- and I'm still ROFLMAO, squeeing, & generally flailing incoherently with the awesome that overfloweth from the laeria. :D

amazingly, it's still not the most surreal two hours of Dawn's life.
BEST DAWNY LINE EVER.

THIS IS DELIGHTFUL! Amy, Dawn, THE TARDIS, THEY ARE ALL MARVELOUS!

Dawn blushes, then leers (it's her new defense mechanism, she got it from Spike.)

Hee, my favourite little detail.

"Thank you, Sexy."

Oh, the number of times I've said that! Heh.

This was marvelous! Dawn/TARDIS as second cousins-ish is inspired! Plus all the flirting, and Elvis, and Amy babbling on...just great.
