Crack fic: "With 6 You Get Unicorns" by cupidsbow

Okay. You asked for it. Don't blame me for the resulting eye trauma.

Title: With 6 You Get Unicorns
Author: cupidsbow
Fandom: Stargate: Atlantis
Pairing: McKay/Sheppard
Rating: NC-17, for the trifecta: sex, violence, death
Summary: Sequel ahoy. With unicorns.
Series: 8 ways not to write a fanfic
For: This was meant to be a thank you to sandrainthesun for her glorious art, but giving someone a badfic doesn't seem like such a great gift, so, um... it's the thought that counts?
Note: See, it's like this. To be a true representative of the badfic genre, a story must be part of a sprawling unfinished series, right? Right. And I know I promised not to write any more in this 'verse if you left lots of comments, and you all more than lived up to your part of the bargain. But you guys, sandrainthesun made an awesome cover! And it has unicorns! If that is not crying out for a sequel, I don't know what is. Also? Don't say I didn't warn you, because this is so bad, I can't even believe it myself.

Swancon and Fanfiction

Those of you going to Swancon, if you want a decent panel on fanfic, you need to volunteer and get involved. The program is here:

I'm happy to be on the panel, but my schedule is already pretty full, so I'm not up for chairing it.

The current blurb is:

Squee, Bunnies, Betas and Crack: The Online World of Fan Fiction
Fanfic fandom is a distinct, vibrant, part of fandom. Fan fiction, and internet fandom is creating a fannish culture of its own, one that can mystify old school lit fans, with not just different enthusiasms but a different language. Is this new fannish culture an evolution of the old, or something new that is going in its own direction? As an internet based culture, what is its relationship to convention going fandom? Is it a major new cultural force, or just another form of fanac? There are a lot of questions abou the relationship between fanfic fandom and other fandoms. But there is certainly one thing about its that is very different to the old stereotypes of fandom -- the gender balance is firmly female.

There's also not many items on Fantasy or Writing at the moment. The con is only a few weeks away, so don't put off making suggestions if you've got 'em.
