Let's play a game! Fic up for grabs!

Okay, I need to have some fun. I keep staring at my marking, staring at my endless, endless WiPs, staring at the emails I need to answer, and staring at the interesting comments I haven't replied to on all the meta I posted this week (I don't even know how many at this point -- the little comment number thingies on the posts combine to something over 300, so I'm officially letting it go and feeling no guilt).

Aside: Yeah, I don't even know what my brain was thinking, either. But I thought of another really interesting meta topic last night, right before I fell asleep. Luckily, I forgot it again. Oh, wait, I remember it. Darn. Note to self: why stories on weird topics, even squicky topics, can sometimes end up being the true stand-outs and originals that live with you forever. Such a shame it means you sometimes read brain-pollution to find them.

Back to the fun! There is one writing-to-prompt-meme I always manage to finish. Yes, you guessed it: it's time for Summary Executions again! I'm only up for SGA, I think. I mean, you can leave a prompt for one of my other fandoms, and the whim may take me. Orrrr it may not. Also, I will do my best to finish them all (I always have before! Go me!), but if there's more than five or so I suspect this burst of energy will exhaust itself before I can. So if your prompt doesn't get a ficlet thing, you'll get a haiku. But that's okay, yes? I am the queen of haiku, after all. *loves on haiku*

The Hypothetical AU Meme: Take any one of the fandoms you know I write in (or think I should) SGA, and give me a type of AU (space opera AU, pirate AU, superhero AU, Ancient Rome, cop AU, etc). I will then explain what story from your chosen fandom I would write for your chosen type of AU.

Also, I seriously considered inviting any takers into so we could bum around and write crack fic together, but I suspect I'm going to fall over all at once, which would be no fun. So I'm going with the meme instead, which is less time dependant. But if you think the idea is cool and might like to join in sometime, let me know in comments. I shall start a list. Or something. Probably something far less organised actually. :)

Ready. Set... Prompt!

ETA: Re-posted for technical reasons.

ETA 2: If any of you fancy continuing one of these AUs in comments, please feel free. :)

ETA 3: Okay, I think we're into haiku territory now. Just so you know.

ETA 4: Anyone popping by to read the ficlets? Hello! I plan to tidy them up and re-post in one handy location in the next day or so.
