Hello, dear Patrons, and welcome to another possible oneshot!
You might be asking yourself, hypothetical Patron, “Can a fic with four chapters be considered a oneshot?” It can when the first chapters are only a few hundred words long, and the other two are Author’s Notes begging readers to submit ideas. Also, the fic hasn’t had any updates since 2016 and has likely been abandoned because no one wanted to do the author’s job for them and/or try to make sense out of this dumpster fire.
Buckle up, buttercup – this is going to be a rough ride.
And not only is this one of those fics, but it’s a Skyrim crossover! Crossed over with what? Technically it’s listed as a crossover with Tangled, but in truth it is one of those crossovers with the massive multi-fandom conglomeration that is Rise of the Big Hero Brave Frozen Tangled Dragons, or whatever it is called these days. If you’ve never heard of this phenomenon, basically authors will pull characters from nearly every CGI animated movie and shove them into a fic, often set in a different universe so the don’t have to bother reconciling the many different canons. High school AU fics are very popular.
Now, on to the fic summary!
Pitch Black and the negatives are back and they got some new allies strong to and only one can stop the three newcomers from taking over Tamirel but he’ll need help with the ones know as Pitch Black and the Negatives with help from ones known as the big four join Marcus the Dragonborn and The four as they travel across Tamirel to stop Pitch and the negatives.
:gasps for breath:
That is all one sentence, my Patrons. Get used to that; this author treats punctuation as if it was crafted of priceless jewels.
Space, the Final Frontier…these are the voyages of the Starship Bongo. It’s five year mission: To explore new frontiers of shitty fanfic. To seek out the worst writing that fandom can muster. To boldly riff where no one has riffed before…
CZM: Hello, and welcome to the next chapter of ‘A Purple Wolf…’

CZM: Oh. Looks like we have a change in orders. Ladies and Gentlemen, prepare yourselves for a really, really bad X-COM/Stargate crossover:
Title: XSGCOM: Mirror Image
Media: Video Game/TV Show
Topic: X-COM: UFO Defence/Stargate: SG1

CZM: Let’s give some background on the show. Stargate is a TV franchise owned by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer that originated with the 1994 feature film Stargate. The show was then revived three years later for the TV show Stargate: SG1, which is set a year after the events of the feature film. There were two further spinoffs, Stargate: Atlantis (Set aboard the city-ship Atlantis); and Stargate: Universe (which was a Star Trek: Voyager-esque series set aboard the generation ship Destiny, and which was the lowest-rated instalment, resulting in the cancellation of the show). After the cancellation of the franchise in the early 2000’s, there was a brief revival in 2017 in the form of the miniseries Stargate: Origins, which explored what happened with the Stargate in the 1940’s. I could go into a excessively detailed explanation of the entire history of the Stargate universe (which I ~totally~ didn’t already do in a early draft of this riff), but I’m going to avoid that, and instead refer you towards the movie Stargate first, then SG-1, followed by Atlantis and very optionally Universe. Also, I’m dropping the script-format here. There’s really no need for it, seeing as Biskit’s……back on vacation. Ok. Switching tenses in three…two…one…brace!
[Suspenseful music plays as Minh presses a button marked ‘Format Transformation’. A light flashes on and off on the Captain’s console, with nothing dramatic really happening. A nearby Redshirt suffers a heart attack however, due to the implied tension.]

Hello once again, patrons! I’m your host, BatJamags, and I’m back with another thrilling (for certain definition of “thrilling” (that definition being “not anything even remotely close to approaching being thrilling in the slightest”)) chapter of The Red Queen!
In the last chapter, Sueby Rose, Sue Grimm, the Cheshire Dog, Tweedle Dick, and Tweedle Dumbass encountered a village of cute orphans, violently defended them from a small army of clones of that generic rapist-bandit-asshole from earlier in the fic and then rolled on out like some edgy, half-assed knockoff of the Man with No Name.
Sueby’s a lot of things, but Clint Eastwood she ain’t. Not that I wouldn’t read the fuck out of such a crossover. Assuming it were Ruby and not Sueby.
“I know what you’re thinking. ‘Did she fire six shots, or only five?’ Well, being that this is a giant armor-piercing sniper rifle that’s also a scythe and carries a lot more than six shots, that really doesn’t matter in the slightest. I’m gonna level with you: You’re not lucky, punk.”
It was an early morning in Beacon, and as always the campus was bustling with activity.
*Snerk* Have you seen early morning on any higher education institution’s campus? What little activity there is is less bustling and more shambling.
