A Heaping Helping of Crack Makes for a Cracktackular Wednesday!

Ladies and Germs... Wait. I'll start again.

Hello, everyone! I’m squidgiepdx and to help us get over humpday in style, let's talk about crack. It's like art - you know it when you see it read it. Crack is what turns a certain floppy-haired Colonel into a bag of frosting and his best friend into a freshly baked donut. It's taking the characters from, say, Person of Interest, and dropping them into an Aesops Fable. It's like writing a certain member of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and his Polish partner into the two leads of The Sound of Music. You get the picture! Crack is whack! And mondo extra special points for breaking that 4th wall!

But if you're into the more literal side of things, then how about lets go with crack as like a fissure, or a break in something. Maybe our intrepid hero escapes in a submarine, and is moments from certain death when a crack forms in one of the windows and water starts spewing forth.

Whatever way you like your crack, come give us your best!

Just a few rules:
No more than five prompts in a row.
No more than three prompts in the same fandom.
Use the character's full names and fandom's full name for ease adding to the Lonely Prompts spreadsheet.
No spoilers in prompts for a month after airing, or use the spoiler cut option found here.
If your fill contains spoilers, warn and leave plenty of space, or use the above mentioned spoiler cut.

Prompts should be formatted as follows: [Use the character's full names and fandom's full name]
Fandom, Character +/ Character, Prompt

Some examples to get the ball rolling...
+ due South, Benton Fraser/Ray Kowalski, Fraser is sure he's either drunk or out of his mind when he starts seeing cartoon characters come to life.

+ Stargate Atlantis, John Sheppard/Rodney McKay, An off-world mission leads to some rather unexpected physical transformations.

+ Hawaii Five-0, Steve McGarrett/Danny Williams + Grace Williams, Danny always calls Grace "Monkey" - but she accidentally gets turned into one!

We are now using AO3 to bookmark filled prompts. If you fill a prompt and post it to AO3 please add it to the Bite Sized Bits of Fic from 2016 collection. See further notes on this new option here.

Not feeling any of today’s prompts? Check out the just created Lonely Prompts Spreadsheet. For more recent prompts to write, you can also use LJ’s advanced search options to limit keyword results to only comments in this community.

While the Lonely Prompts Spreadsheet and LJ's advanced search options are available, bookmarking the links of prompts you like might work better for searching for in the future.
