It is what all the cool memes are doing nowadays!

The only rule is, don't be a total passive-aggressive douche. This isn't the place to spew all your vitriolic unrequited blackrom feelings for other members of of our dear fandom--or if you can't resist, at least don't mention them by name, that shit is just a little too petty. If it gets out of hand I'll ban you so fast Karkat would be impressed.

Other than that, hop to it, anons. And TITLE YOUR THREADS it could get pretty confusing all up in here if you didn't!

PS, as one kind anon pointed out, if you want to see the comments in chronological order instead of thread format, put ?view=flat after html in the URL. Or click here, whatever.

Something like Marchingstuck/Promstuck doesn't really have to work on the level you're describing, I don't think. In that AU's case, the focus is exclusively on humor in the form of over-the-top inter-character drama and zany antics that there wouldn't be room for in canon, and okay it's not "a good AU" in the sense that there isn't any worldbuilding and it's taken for granted that there's stuff about the characters' backgrounds that doesn't, strictly speaking, make sense, but I definitely wouldn't say it doesn't work, because it does. It's just acknowledged that the world where it's set making sense isn't the point, and it's easy to suspend your disbelief to enjoy it because in the context it doesn't actually matter.

Sure, that kind of thing isn't to everyone's taste, but it does exactly what it sets out to do and it does it very well, imo.

I loved the Marchingstuck notes. But zany antics and nonsense and suspension of disbelief worked because it was just the high points and payoff. CAPSLOCKS SO MUCH doesn't work as a story so easily.
