Important month, right?
It just got even more important. That's right, October brings us....
It's probably no surprise to anybody that most of us at Castle Inanity are huge Whedonites, or at least fans of the shows. Engage Chris in a discussion about Firefly and Serenity sometime. It will BLOW YOUR MIND. Justin is the creative genius behind Sarah the Vampire Slayer. mxpw's favorite show is Buffy, it says so right on his profile. I break out into spontaneous choruses of "My Eyes" and "My Freeze Ray" with my sister, and have regularly offered people the keys to a "shiny new Australia." Wepdiggy, as you know, wrote the brilliant Slayin' Genes, so he knows where it's at, clearly.
So a couple of days ago, Maximus and I were talking, like I said, and he commented on the idea of writing a sequel to his great zombie story in which an actual zombie apocalypse happens. And I said, that's a great idea! I should write a Halloween fic! And then I started making jokes about pitting Whedon villains against Chuck and company because that's how my mind works, and Maximus riffed on it with me for awhile because he really is the world's most indulgent beta reader, and we were like, we should get everybody in on this! So we went around to our fellow CIA members and were like, "Let's write one-shot crossovers for Halloween! Chuck vs. Buffy/Angel/Horrible/Dollhouse/Firefly villains!"
It's not a contest, we're not going to head-to-head (the reason for that is I'm fairly certain Crystal would kick all of our butts--have you read Kill Bryce? She can be scary when she needs to be!), but a chance for everybody who's a fan of Chuck and Whedon to enjoy six new stories, really. And hey, if anybody else wants to hop on the bandwagon, we'd be happy to have you! Let's celebrate Hallowhedon together!
