opheliastorn: It's Make-A-Sue Day*!

* Or week, or month. It's Make-A-Sue Indeterminate Period Of Time!

So, I'm writing a story where the main charcter gets sucked into a fan fiction. But I cannot for the life of me think of something bad enough to call this awful fic. I could probably wrangle up a decent (read: eye-poppingly terrible) Sue to stick in it, but I need help with the title and maybe a smidgen of a plot.

So, why wait? Forget about tweaking your own lovely characters and splurge out on a great fat Sue for me!

the under-staffed, under-funded fan-fiction department (official name not yet thought about): basically, they're all doing their darndest to cull the absolute worst of all the Mary Sues-type fan fiction out there and aren't having much luck.

Oh, kinda like the PPC, eh? As for a fic title, "haRRy PoTter and Teh New Girl" works as a generic title, or "The Reason They Invented Scumble and Bleepka" is a bit more meta-humorish.

Filks are roughly the song version of fanfic. "Pretty Fly for a Jedi" was a popular one just after Episode I came out, based on the Offspring's "Pretty Fly for a White Guy."

Oh, brilliant. Just when I finally think I have an original idea *sigh*

Well, onwards ever onward. If you want me, i'll be over reading about the PPC, because they look very fun. Will probably now have to rearrange my ficverse so as not to mesh with theirs... cheerio!
