New project  
So I'm writing this crack!fic. And y'all who know about Teh Evol Heather know of what I speak. :)

But this is a general whine about my complete and utter inability to write crack. Apparently I have to actually be, like, on crack to write crack!fic. Because it's jumped the bounds of crack-ness. Two thousand words and maybe a third the way through the plot, I have to give up and admit it's an actual story.

Because I have nothing better to do of course.

I just couldn't do it. The old brain said, "But why would he do that?" And I had to come up with an answer that made sense. I think my muse was holding a knife to the poor little purple crack bunny and threatening it with grisly death, unless his more serious cousin came to visit. It came very quickly. :D

I suspect it's all the story editing I've been doing lately. Editing isn't very creative, and all that energy's gotten pent up and just insisted that I write something. And the challenge was right smack in the way. It was probably best left alone, but... too late now. At least, unlike most of my ideas, it's not a frelling novel, so that's a plus.

Back to the fic. Because, crack or not, it's very addictive.

crack!fic definition. Hm. how about: a story with a premise so completely absurd a reader can only say, "WOw, that author must have been on crack when s/he wrote that!" OFten used for fic involving wings, tentacles, penguins, squid, multiple crossovers, etc. SOmething meant to be humorous usually, and not based very much (or at all) in the canon of the show. The term has migrated into being used for just about anything silly.

Some people write hilarious crackfic. I'm not one of them. I like my canon too much, to go all wild with it, as much as the idea appeals to me.

And no, I have no idea why the term is "crack" instead of something else. :) It didn't originate in any of my fandoms; I just picked it up in the great fandom hive-mind.

try to stay cool!

thanks for the explanation

Just got outof the pool, which is about as warm as a bath tub, but strangly refreshing. We are planning on doing something cool for dinner since the meal perdium here is $59 and we have only spent $6.
