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.

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.
