    Summary

    In truth, he had no plans. Showing mercy had seemed to Naruto like a strategy so simple that it needed no great thought; he had not dwelled long on the details. “A king is strongest when he has the love of his people,” he said.

    “A queen is strongest when she has the fear and sworn obedience of her people,” said Karin. “And a sister is best pleased when she has the same of her brother. You will not do this again, Naruto. You will not leave Jiraiya’s grounds until I see you wed. Do you want to wake the nine-tails, or will you hold your tongue?”

    (In exile beyond the Narrow Sea, the last two survivors of a once-legendary house famed for its association with a particular sort of raging, demonic mythical beast are preparing to retake their rightful throne. Really, it’s business as usual for Westeros.)

    Summary

    (A/N: Diverges from Marvel Fairy Tales canon, heavier on J.M. Barrie's Peter Pan with a sprinkling of 616.)

    ~~~

    “Why are you crying?” came a voice from the windowsill. It didn’t sound mocking or sympathetic, but merely curious.

    Tony raised his face from the pillow that had been muffling his tears, and saw the shadow of a boy at the window. The boy came closer to his bed, trailing skeleton leaves behind him, and Tony saw that he had a lovely face and clear azure eyes.

    “I was born with a hole in my heart. As I grow older my heart grows weaker, until it ultimately fails,” he said, “and I die.” Just this afternoon he thought he saw blue tinging his fingertips. His breath had grown short from the shock of this discovery that he fell in a dead faint.

    The boy sat cross-legged on the rug on the floor. “If your heart fails, why don’t you get a new one?”

    When he said, “Let’s go west,” what he meant was: I love you.

    Or, the fantastic romance between a beautiful monk and a dashing monkey king, written in the style of Wu Cheng'en's "Journey to the West," with more than a few dashes of "The Princess Bride" here and there.

    Summary

    "And so Sir Gawain did place a bid upon the Holy Grail, but ere it could become his, another knight rode up at a mighty wallop and stood against him in the bidding yard..." Malory tells us one version of the quest for the Holy Grail. How different would things have been had the knights had access to a few pieces of somewhat anachronistic technology?

    Summary

    Doubtkey Condos, the famous detective, has no murder to solve. Her best friend, Marcia Watkins, suggests reading her a story she wrote about a case past. They both get so immersed in the story that it's like they're solving in all over again. Half parody, half pastiche. Written in play format.

    Summary

    Doctor Vipera - aka Elle Murphy of 89 Crosslet Vale, Greenwich, England - had a plan. It was immaculate, as her plans always were; she did not take kindly to being derailed. And by a dilettante in a rumpled tuxedo, at that. Fucking Double-Oh. Elle knew for a fact he practiced his seduction routines in the mirror.

    She’d bugged his apartment years ago.

    Summary

    May need a moment's explication.

    Charlie Brooker's wonderful satirical programmes ScreenWipe and WeeklyWipe bring in an excellent comic actress, Diane Morgan, as "Philomena Cunk" in "Moments of Wonder", where she does a lovely line in flat deadpan Northern delivery of some exceedingly ridiculous lines.

    errandofmercy noticed this on Tumblr, and said, what we need is a fandom version.

    So I did. It's tonally uneven, mainly because I kept slipping between what I was trying for and Sellars & Yeatman, but I think it's funny.

    If anyone wants to know where I came up with the Nightmare Fuel of animals tied together, look up "Rat King".
