Critiqued by TacoMagic

You might have noticed that yesterday I posted a guest shot and instead I’m posting my riff today.  That’s because we were out of spoop-themed guest posts, which was a problem because today is

HALLOWEEN!

And we’re going to end this like we started it, with some Star Wars!  But, this time the fic is actually about Halloween!

Sorta.

Our Star Wars correspondent is absent this week due to a sudden compelling need to spend all day on the heat rock, so we’ll just muddle through without him.

Onward to glory and summary!

An in-between Story for Two Sith Lords and an elf.

I immediately regret my life choices!

“Two Sith Lords and an Elf” is a collection of various fics written by Warious that is kind of its own little fan canon.  Based on the handfull of chapters I read, it’s a super cringy collection of small fics that all star herself.  I’ll probably get around to riffing those some day, but you don’t really need to know much about them for this little Halloween spinoff.

Darth Maul and Darth Warious give an account of what happened one October month in preparation for Halloween.

That’s what we call a “nothing fic confirmation” ’round these parts.

2460: Halloween Oneshots – Spooptoberfest Part Four

Critiqued by TacoMagic

Welcome back to the Spooptoberfest, Patrons!  This week we’re going to do something that last week I said I had no plans on doing, and that’s Harry Potter Halloween fics!  See, in the comments last week Bats mentioned that there must be a ton of holiday nothing fics for Final Fantasy 7, which is absolutely true.  However, there are so, so many more for Harry Potter; a quick check indicates that there are roughly thirty-times more.

And, most of them are bad.

But we aren’t just about bad here in the Library, no, we’re also about, well, this:

View the night of Voldemort’s attack on the Potters through the eyes of Ami, Harry’s twin sister.

Brace yourselves patrons, this is going to be exceptionally pointless.

2456: Spooptoberfest Guest Submission: Everyone Is Mutated!

Topic: Super Smash Bros.
Genre: …Adventure/Horror? …let’s go with that, sure.

Critiqued by Elysium16 and Rimura

(This is Halloween plays over the speakers. Elysium bursts into the room, dressed as Link and carrying a fake Master Sword.)

Elysium: *swinging the Master Sword* Ha! Hyah! HAAAAAAppy Halloween, patrons!

…I hope it’s still October. I have NO idea when this’ll go up.

Anyway! I WAS going to use this fic for when we reach the halfway point of Kirby: Welcome to Smash Bros., buuuuuuut it clearly WANTS to be a horror fic (despite the fact that it isn’t tagged as horror), and it has mutants, so it counts!

*looks at the doorway* ‘Mura, come on, we talked about this.

Rimura: *muffled* I’m not going in there.

Elysium: Why?

Rimura: I hate this thrice-damned costume!

Elysium: Oh, come on! This is the last time you’ll have to wear it, you can suck it up!

Rimura:*sigh*

(Rimura enters the room, dressed like Princess Zelda.)

Rimura: This had better not get on any social media.

Elysium: I make no promises.

Anyway! Let’s just jump right into it: Everyone is Mutated! by JacquIreBriggs.

Roll tape!

Howdy, patrons!  Welcome back to the spooptoberfestivities!  We’ll be starting off today with the last of the pronker trio!  Crunchy, care to recap the first two for us?

“Nothing happened.”

Yup!  But this week will be different!  Well, no it won’t but at least we have an author’s note this time.

Author’s Note: This is finally getting Roan out of the pickle I put him in in 2007. Completion of the stories “Lord Vader Needs Feet” and “Jedi Zombie.”

“I suppose we can be thankful this note is at least pertinent to the story, if still entirely unnecessary.”

Onward to the-

IOIOIOIOIO

“To the six-hundred-eighty-two?”

I’m sure that’s foreshadowing.

Critiqued by Zeus, Lt. Nimitz, And Sally
Zeus: Okay, now we need to put the helmet on, and make sure the oxygen pump isn’t blocked, or it’s gonna be one short trip.

Nimitz: Got it.

*the two proceed to EVA walk towards a decompressed part of the lower decks*

Sally: Yay, you came back!

Nimitz: Now don’t worry, we have some science to do.

Zeus: Hey, hows it going up there?

Svarti: *through comms* Well, if the amount of messages are any indication, it seems that we accidentally skimmed someone’s ship. We’ll try to negotiate as peacefully as possible, but that Spectre isn’t gonna make it easy on us.

Zeus: Copy. *clears throat* Okay, today’s a special day, for it is the start of me riffing Spooktober pastas.

 

Zeus: Got to appeal to the kids somehow. Anyways, we have some very special guests, with 2nd Lieutenant Nimitz Levanti and Sally.

Critiqued by TacoMagic and Darth Lord Crunchy (Retired)

Happy spoopy Wednesday, patrons!  I’m coming at you this week with the first two of a three-part series of little oneshots that are, well, not good. Very, very not good.  And since we’ve got Star Wars on the menu this week, I have our Star Wars correspondent helping out today.

“I loathe you.”

So you’ve said.

So, our “horror” special starts with “Lord Vader Needs Feet,” which initially I imaged was some kind of fetish fic, but turns out is actually more mundane.

“Presumably it has to do with Vader having a large percentage of his body replaced with cybernetics, yes?”

Indeed it would.  Here’s the summary, not that it helps.

Vader needs to testdrive some modifications to his suit and uses any Jedi that he can lay his mechnohands on.

“‘Mechanohands?’  This is not going to be very good, is it?”

No, it really isn’t.  Let’s get this over with.

Critiqued by TacoMagic and Eliza

Hello, patrons!  Welcome back to the continuing Spooptoberfestivities!  Today we’ll be adding two more little oneshots to the Library’s pile of spooky, spooky failure.  The first is a Halloween oneshot, not just the holiday, but also the titular movie taking place on the holiday!  Though, honestly, to call this thing a fanfic is tarnishing the good name of such epic masterpieces of “untold zombie chronicels.”

You’ll understand why this one is bad pretty much right away when I show you the summary.

Song fanfic

That’s the entire summary.  And it’s a tragedy/angst fic, so who wants to bet we get something with either My Chemical Romance or Evanescence.  Brace yourselves, patrons, we’re going in hot!
