There's always MSTing. IE making fun of fanfiction in the style of Mystery Science Theater 3000. :)

There is quite a lot at Discworldcon and at Eastercon so I keep out of the way of it, but each to their own.

Heh, should make a thread for it.

:) have you, (or anyone here really) written any delightfully dreadful DW fanfics you/they wouldn't mind seeing lampooned, in a friendly way ;) , by Mike* and the bots?

*my preference, but if anyone else decides to do their own they can use who they wish.

I used to be big into misting years ago. back before Shinji's Vault Of Anime Mistings imploded. Even did a few myself. Sadly it seems the community has died away.
