Okay, so I'm failing at this Question of the Day thing
But school's starting back up, so ... I'll have even less time? Whatever. It'll work out. For now, here's your cracktastic prompt!

It's time for another Costume Job, meaning everyone gets to dress in exciting, fabulous outfits for the heist at the Big Dance. Who wears what? Does River shock everyone with her rendition of Flashdance? Does Jayne do his best Fred Astaire imitation? Does Simon spend the entire night trying to ask Kaylee to dance? Go nuts!

Current Mood: chipper

The return of the crack
Back from gallivanting around -- and I bring crack!prompts.

Favorite childhood memory of whoever in the 'verse you choose. Go nuts.

Question of today
Inspired by use_theforce_em:

The heat on Serenity is going nuts! Kaylee's working as hard as she can to fix it, but the temperature's rising ... who's the first to start stripping?

Current Mood: silly

Time for more crack!
Because it's been too long ...

A question for us all: Poetry slam on Serenity. Who gets snaps?

Current Mood: cool

Yet another question.
Because my roommate and I are watching the Food Network right now ...

Iron Chef: Serenity. What goes on?

Current Mood: hungry!

Question of the day
For reasons best left unsaid (unless you feel like explaining), the gang on Serenity is making a music video. Does Jayne get to expose his folk-singer soul? Does Mal get to be the hip-hop star he's always wanted to be, complete with video girls? Do Wash and Simon get in a rap battle? Leave your thoughts!

Current Mood: cheerful

A question and a prompt!
So. The crack questions seem to be doing well. Let's try to add something else to the mix. I give you ... prompts!

Well, just one, really, as this is the first time we're trying this. Don't worry, you don't have to write much of anything. Drabble, sentence, plot summary, sonnet, haiku ... whatever strikes your fancy.

And as always, people, say whatever you feel.

Ze Question:
Everyone's horoscopes are lying on the kitchen table. What do they say?

Ze Prompt:
Taffy.

Have fun!

Snakes on a Serenity?

youngcurmudgeon said I could ask a crack!prompt, and so I will.

Prompt:

Kaylee loves Simon who loves Jayne who loves Inara who loves Mal who has befriended a talking parrot. What happens? And where's Zoe?

And here we go again ...
... with the Crack Question Of The Day. If anyone else has prompts, questions, ideas, or other silliness to share, go ahead and post it!

And now, the moment you've all been dreading waiting for:

Who (on Serenity) stole the cookies from the cookie jar?

Current Mood: inquisitive

First-ever Crack Question Of The Day
Until we get things up and running here, I think I'm going to try to post a cracky question of the day, just to get us all in the mood. Feel free to chime in with whatever strikes your fancy -- drabbles, speculation, songs, choreography, whatever. We're accepting here.

Question of the day:

Serenity crash-lands on a desert island. Then what?

Current Mood: weird

Oh ... hello there.
Well. It's been a while, hasn't it? Real life is silly like that. At any rate, clearly this comm hasn't gone the way it was planned. So. Suggestion time. What do you all want to see? Cracky prompts? Challenges? Terrifying space monkeys? Leave a note letting me know what you think and we can proceed. Personally, here's what I want to see going on.

1. Silly fic!
2. Cracktastic challenges scattered like overripe melons.
3. Fun "what if?" questions flitting through the Internet.

And I'll start it off right now. Cracktastic Question Of The Day:

River starts offering dance lessons. What happens?


Current Mood: inspired

Welcome!
Friends, Reavers, browncoats, lend me your ears. ... Reavers, I actually meant your own ears, but we'll ignore that for now. Welcome to the Firefly Crackathon. This post will serve as a sign-up post for the ficathon portion of our evening. But remember, you can also post your own fics at any time.

Comments are screened, so no one will see your prompts. Please leave a comment with:

Your name or preferred title
Your LJ username
An e-mail address
A cracktastic prompt

What are these cracktastic prompts, you ask? Think of the weirdest thing you could possibly imagine on Firefly. Go ahead, think of it. Jayne in a dress? Zoe singing a torch song? A parade of penguins? That's what we're aiming for. Doesn't have to be complicated -- in fact, it shouldn't be too complicated. Just something or a couple of somethings you'd enjoy seeing the crew of Serenity deal with.

You must sign up by June 15 if you want to be involved in this go-round of prompted fic. Latecomers will be let off easy allowed to post their own fics, but will not be involved in the prompted fic.

Questions? Concerns? E-mail me.
