comedy is hard - buffy

LJ name: bellatemple
Pen name: Bella Temple

Fandom: Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Three things that make you laugh: Dramatic Irony, unexpected physical comedy, intentionally overdone action sequences (ie. the police chase in Blues Brothers)
Three things that make you say "Ugh": pointless smut, OOC, excessive grammatical errors
Anything you absolutely will not write? . . . not really? I have little to no experience writing smut or slash

Yay! Hi!

Thanks for signing up. :D

addendum to the sign up, if you're willing? Just finished speed watching season 1, so you can toss me in for an attempt at VM fic.

Unless you know a few Doctor Who people who'd want to participate, there's a good chance we'll have to go with Buffy. :p

Thanks for signing up! :D

Three things that make you laugh: wit, wit, and uh - did I say wit? Any instance of Spike and Angel being jealous idiots. Any mention of Duncan.
Three things that make you say "Ugh": Slash (just not my thing), bad characterization, and I'm not a grammar nazi, but spell check is your friend.
Anything you absolutely will not write? Slash - unless you like the phrases butt secks and man-tool. Bangel. Duncan/Veronica.

I'm just too damn weak.

LJ name: irmak

E-Mail: irmakkockan@hotmail.com
Fandom: Can only write Veronica Mars, but willing to read VM or BtVS
Three things that make you laugh: Snark. Jealousness. Naked Logan, Spike or Xander. (Bonus: Kanecest and/or slash in a funny way is love.)
Three things that make you say "Ugh": OOC, overdone physical humor, D/V in love.
Anything you absolutely will not write? Anything other than VM, physical comedy, overdone action sequences (I'm just not that good).

Hee! You're so very welcome. Although, I do seriously suck. You'll make someone unhappy :)

Geek pride!

LJ name: blue_icy_rose
Pen name: On LJ it's blue_icy_rose. Places like fanfiction.net or adultfanfiction.net, it's IceBlueRose. (And at the Spuffy Fantasy Archives...BlueRose. There's a theme.)
E-Mail: CrazyNAH@aol.com
Fandom: Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, or Veronica Mars (If I'm writing it though, I tend to write better comedy with the Buffy characters, so I'd prefer to write that or Angel.)
Three things that make you laugh: Snark, banter, characters having random thoughts because while I love funny dialogue, never underestimate the funny thoughts (out loud-I've got a thing for inserting humor in serious scenes-or just in their head). Pretty sure that Spike, Xander, or Logan interacting with any character would be hilarious (and since they're my three favorite characters, there'd be much love for reading/writing this).
Three things that make you say "Ugh": bad characterization, too much/overdone physical humor, overly sappy scenes between characters if it's romantic, and if it's VM: use of the name "Ronnie" all the time (if it's L/V or not meant to be sarcastic) or a perfectly happy V/D
Anything you absolutely will not write? Non-con (though I doubt I'd have to worry about that since this is comedy), and I don't think I could write Bangel or V/D very funny. I'm more of a Spuffy, Spander, or L/V girl. Not sure if I could do incest, but I suppose I could try my hand at it.


By the way, on a side note, bloodclaim has some awesome comedy writers and I'm sure that the mod, darkhavens wouldn't mind you pimping it over there. If you don't want to join the community, I'll pimp this in my next post over there.

And sorry about the length! I tend to babble. ^_^

Babbling's completely fine! Thank you for signing up! (If you already planned on posting something, that'd be great! I'd feel weird about joining a community just to pimp stuff. *looks down*)

But, again, thanks! :D

What a story this would make.

No problem, I'm planning on posting as soon as I finish the next chapter of my story. So I'll pimp it there. (Xander and the Twinkie is a classic! Hee!)

And lol, I just realized that in my babble, I forgot to mention one thing under what I can't write. Big action scenes! Have to add it since I'm better with dialogue and stuff and I wouldn't want to be asked to write an action scene, then have to disappoint. (Really, I'm not usually this forgetful. It's just been that kind of week, lol.)

This looks like it's going to be so much fun!

Buffy/Angel - New Beginning

I think you said you sent me an invite but I never got it, meh never mind:

LJ name: heck_weasy
Pen name: Weasy
E-Mail: halfevilkids@yahoo.co.uk
Fandom: Buffy, oooh, or Doctor Who since somebody else has said it! yay! But only the new series (as in CE or DT)
Three things that make you laugh: Awkward pauses, sex and... life, in general?
Three things that make you say "Ugh": Not really into toilet humour, don't mind character bashing unless too great an emphasis on character being stupid. then it get's 'ugh'-y. People being very embarrassed. I just get embarassed for them and have to leave the room...
Anything you absolutely will not write? If Buffy, not C/A or B/S romantically as would probably have to resort to character bashing to make funny, and really would not want to - as it wouldn't be funny.

Posted by: Tanglyhair McDuckface (xbitexmyxlipx)

I did, but I guess it messed up. >:\
Thanks for signing up, though!

Buffy/Angel - Spike Evil

well, I figure it might get me back into writing gear as am progressing incredibly painfully slowly on everything else.

Plus, it's all about the funny!

LJ name: izzyntsherandom
Pen name: Kirina
E-Mail: izzyntshe_random@yahoo.co.uk
Fandom: Dark Angel, Firefly/Serenity, Harry Potter, Doctor Who (9 or 10- I've seen lots of some others but don't know them well enough to write!), Fruits Basket, Loveless, Prince of Tennis.
Three things that make you laugh: Witty humour, dry humour, irony of various forms. And appropriate randomness/tangents. (er- that sentence made sense to me; possibly it won't to people who are other)
Three things that make you say "Ugh": typical "misunderstandings" in romantic situations, Out Of Character-ness, toilet humour. And unjustified pure character-bashing.
Anything you absolutely will not write? Anything likely to require 18/NC-17/M+ rating, not because I object to such fic, just that I can't write it well! HP, no "romantic" pairings that involve people who, agewise, could be parent and child, or who are blood-related. Prince of Tennis- non-Seigaku focus, Kaidoh-focus, Kawamura-focus, detailed tennis matches (though I'm looking into fixing it, 'cos this fandom is helping my muse return!).

Three things that make you say "Ugh": Grammatical errors that pull me out of a story, complete silliness (a little is fine, but there's such a thing as too much), adding in OCs who are central to the plot.
Anything you absolutely will not write? I'm bad at smut and romantic relationships.
