Ficwriting resource for all your LOLcat crossovers

...which the world needs more of. Or at least, I'd appreciate more.

Yes, just like my undissipated longing for The IT Crowd/The Big Bang Theory crossover fic featuring Moss/Sheldon (or Moss & Sheldon friendship or, heck, Roy/Penny and Jen/Leonard), I would really really like there to be (or to be pointed towards!) more well-written LOLcat crossover fic.


So (thank you [personal profile] facetofcathy for alerting me to it) I was deeply thrilled and excited and gratified to discover a very fine Tool -- and scholarly document! -- that will, I hope, make it easier for far more fic-writers to have fikshun cat makez a fanfikshun:

Writing Tips: LOLCAT for Fanfic Writers over at [livejournal.com profile] fandom_grammar. Yes, fine, this was posted on April 1, but I implore you fic writers, use this as the fine and useful writers' tool it was clearly meant to be!


In addition, another few relevant fics besides the fine examples* used in the scholarly study:

JIM CAN HAS CHEEZBURGER? by [livejournal.com profile] winterover. Star Trek XI, Kirk/McCoy, PG-13, ~3200 words.
A translator device malfunction infects Jim with a speech disorder and associated personality traits. Absolutely hilarious. Bones's longsufferingness (is that a word?) is just the cherry on top. Also: WE HAS A TRU LUV.

Happee Days by [livejournal.com profile] alyse. Ceiling Cat/Basement Cat, G, ~1100 words.
Alas, not a crossover (except with fiction rather more literary than the average LOLcat? So um, maybe a very special hybrid with The Master and Margarita?), but the romance between Ceiling and Basement Cat is very sweet. :)

Plus another scholarly resource (cribbed from the [livejournal.com profile] fandom_grammar post's comments), which might be summarized as "LOLcat syntax: UR DOIN IT RONG": Cats Can Has Grammar by Anil Dash



* Those fine examples are:
Trying to Communicate by [personal profile] sam_storyteller/[livejournal.com profile] copperbadge. Torchwood, background Jack Harkness/Ianto Jones (and unrequited LOLcat/Ianto?), PG, ~1700 words. ALIEN CAT IS ALIEN. Also, IT HAZ A YANTOE. Deservedly a classic.

untitled Inception comment fic by anonymous. Inception, Arthur/Eames, PG?, ~600 words. Oops, it's just better not to enter the dreams of people whose subconscious consists of Internet memes...
