    DnD AU, but they're playing Tomb of Horrors. It's just page after page of characters sitting around a table declaring their intent to poke things with sticks from a safe distance and then their characters dying with no saving throw anyway.

    Here’s one I’m actually fucking thinking of writing, stemming from my friend’s comment that Greg’s dad should be voiced by Danny DeVito.

    Greg Universe finds out that his biological father is actually Frank Reynolds from Always Sunny. He and the CGs travel to Philadelphia in the hopes of meeting his dad for the first time. The Gang and the CGs are forced to interact and Greg is horrified by his dad. Shenanigans ensue.

    littlepinkbeast Imperator Fluttershy

    russian literature AU where you write fanfic for any setting but figure out what all the characters' patronymics and the appropriate forms of address would be and refer to them by fifteen different names depending on which one is appropriate for the person speaking.

    This one isn't silly, but would be extremely inflammatory, so I think it fits as "deliberately bad"... If not, do we have a more appropriate thread for it?

    Vriska Serket fits the criteria of a clinical sociopath, and her haters bring that up a lot. I want a psychological study from her perspective about her being a sociopath, by someone who doesn't hate her. It could be super interesting! There was a fic like that about someone's OC on a friendslocked site, which fascinated me. (A quote which stuck with me: "I would never respond anything less than truthfully. I genuinely wanted him to understand me. I would reply, "I'm aware that she was here, and now she's gone. And I preferred it when she was here, and if I had the choice I would prefer for her to be now. But I don't have the choice, so I can't see the point in feeling anything about it''.")

  10. As a mentally ill person who absolutely adores Vriska I’d be very interested in seeing that, but I don’t have enough knowledge of the subject to write it myself at this time.

    @Artemis Sounds like a line in the Looney Tunes reboot. "Aww, be strong. I've been there. BUT I'M NOT ANYMORE! Whoo-hoo!"

    I just remembered the other half of the Internet Russian Troll Farm AU idea, which was specifically about the Winter Soldier: Bucky still gets taken by the Russians, but instead of them turning him into an assassin and having him shoot people, they turn him into a character assassin and he writes fake news articles on Facebook.

  20. TheSeer

    TheSeer 37 Bright Visionary Crushes The Doubtful

    ... okay but, that would be a fic where Aang travels around the Fire Nation and its conquered territories in secret and wherever he goes, great firebenders in key government posts just quit their jobs and abandon the war to go live in the mountains or something. The narration would follow Zuko, traveling around in Aang's trail trying to figure out why all these competent loyal people keep deserting...

    Honestly Atlas Shrugged becomes a very different story when the government it depicts is actually oppressing people.
