Gud Summries phor Phriday!

This concept was originated by mctabby for the Harry Potter Fandom, which is STILL kicking Jossverse's ass with the wank and weirdness, which shames me. WE SHOULD BE WANKIER! I mean, it's not like there isn't magic in BtVS and AtS - one of the main things to get the crazy juices flowing. *sighs*

General Disclaimer (although, as I'm a Mean Girl who Doesn't Love Everything Produced in the Name of Fandom, I should skip this part. But I won't. Because I am an ENIGMA.):
This is a compilation of terrifically entertaining summaries from various fanfiction websites. This is NOT about mocking authors, and I don't condone name calling. I have not read the fics in question, they could be works of art. Ahem. This is about coming across a story and how the author tries to entice you to read it. Or scroll by quickly. Summaries should MAKE YOU WANT TO READ. Okay, some of these TOTALLY make me want to read, but probably not in the way the author intended. All italics are my commentary.

Previous Gud Summries can be found here: 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5


  • Warning: MarySue AU

  • Buffy learns how to NOT be bitchy

  • A little poem I wrote for British literature class as part of a class project to create our own individual Canterbury Tales, set at a McDonald's birthday party.

  • I have changed this stroy a bit. I hope you like this new verison... (it's subtle... but it pleases me.)

  • DON'T GO AWAY! It has a plot now!

  • Buffy's pregnant who's the father?

  • Spike's alone with his thoughts. Genre: Romance (told you he had chemistry with anything.)

  • Sometimes Humpty Dumpty isn't an egg at all it could be a person, or an animal, or something.

  • actually i am making stuff up as i go along

  • Jason Vorhees is sent on a mission to Sunnydale as he's the messenger from hell. As Buffy has to stop him ,teaming up with michael myers. Rated PG-13 for violence seawring.

  • buffy's a skater, Angel's a skater and Riley turned into a dip despite my best efforts to the contrary.

  • Xander develops allergies.

  • On August the 23, in the Year of Our Lord 1339, the crown prince of Loria was born. Born not as a child, but as a man, he led the Knights of the White against the demon Hoarde, and vanguished them on the fields of Moridian. (Xander fic)

  • Spike tries to honor 911

  • Just small stories about stupid every day stuff with Xander doing them

  • Spike will have a happy ending in another version

  • stuff ensues (I love this because "wackiness/hilarity ensues was evidently the description du jour in 2002 for EVERY fic.)

  • uuh, dru makes a bunch of rats into vamps

  • rated for descriptive content

  • Angels gets cozy with Xander's feet and ankles

  • Buffy dies... and my friend Vicki becomes the New Slayer

  • it's easy to tell with some people (again: ommmmm)

  • Oz brakes up with Willow and someone notices

  • Pretty much Spike and Buffy have some pain and some strife

  • Xander finds out where all the toilet paper went

  • AU - Buffy summers had worked hard to reach the top of the Worthington Pharmaceutical - until a corporate merger turned her ordered world upside down, To make matters worse the merging companies hired a savvy consulvant, Willian Ediston to smooth out things.

  • Spike muses about butterflies.

  • A song fic. Buffy dies. Angel's with her. It's sad.

  • Buffy thinks.

  • After the brutal murder of his parents, Alexander Harris has prepared his whole life to avenge them. The arrival of the Slayer and grinning terror will be his first, and perhaps last test as The Batman.




And now!! I've been threatening to do this since December... It's time to have a FUN FICATHON! The "Gud Summries" ficathon.

WHAT: pick a gud summrie from one of the posts. Write your version of the story, based on the gud summrie as presented.
WHEN: Sign ups are April 7 - April 20. Fics will be DUE: July 4. Plenty of time to get one done!
WHY: because we need to have fun around here, dammit!
RULES: No person bashing (as in, other authors). No word limit, any genre or style is acceptable, the world's your oyster!
HOW: Comment to this post with your LJ Name, the gud summrie you've selected, and the style you wish to write it in (humor, parody, angst, tentacles...)

WHEEEEE! Let's have some fun!

[ETA]: Let's add the addition of FANART - fully realizing the gud summrie, of course, or FanVids - again, expressing through song and/or interpretive dance the deep meaning of the summrie. Um... these really should be parodies. You get that, right? Sure you do. HUMOR! makes the world go round. IT IS NOT GRAVITY OR MAGNETIC FORCES. Your teacher lied to you.

Buffy dies... and my friend Vicki becomes the New Slayer
*


I am so very much not going to do this ficathon, but I have an old acquaintance named Vicki who, with her identically dressed {daughter/half-sister or perhaps niece} haunts my life. My husband calls them Patti and Selma, which has made it impossible to see them without laughing hysterically.

Julia, one of those circmstances which means I'll never write a memoire to be published in my lifetime

*rolls around*

And this? Is why I do NOT do summries. Evah.

But for you ... anything.

My choice: Spike loves the Slayer, Agle's back to claim her, Riley just adimmted to his love

And it will be angst. Oh yes. Anytime Agle's around and Riley is adimmteding and Spike is loving ... it will be a sad, sad thing.

HEEEEEEEEEEE!!!

oh GOD I howled at 911. Oh, the difference a "slash" makes. I can just see Spike, a fresh kill at his feet, a phone in his hand.

Camera cuts to a clock ticking. To Spike, looking intently at the phone. To the body, seeping blood on the floor. To the clock. To the phone...

EXTREME CLOSE-UP of his finger hovering over the 9. Then EXTREME close-up of a bead of sweat running down Spike's face...

Finally, the "EEH EEH EEH EEH" of the phone left off the hook too long.

THE END.

I kind of love the Dru vamping the rats one, but I will not commit to it yet, so if someone else wants to do it, I'm down with that.

I love that someone noticed that Oz broke up with Willow. And Spike honouring 911. WHAT THE FUCK.

Angels gets cozy with Xander's feet and ankles AHAHHAHAHAAHHAHAHA It sounds so damn CUTE!

I am still laughing. I love you.

I do not make up ANY of these. Nor anything in the bad!(great)fic posts, either. All c&p'd from the original. Which gives me endless joy.

I'd say almost all of these were by people I've never heard of, AND they all date before 2002, so...

It's all good. And I KNOW! They are hilarious!

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
