Stephen Colbert soliciting fan fic
- All fanfics must be broken up into chapters, and sent in piece-by-piece. I appreciate the effort you put into The Colbert Odyssey: Search for the Codex of Wisdom, Shelly F. of Piedmont, KY, but sending me a 1700-page novel via overnight mail and checking the "recipient will pay shipping" box is not cool!
- It doesn't count as fan fiction if you just take a copyrighted work and insert Stephen as a character. I'm looking at you, Pete G., author of Harry Potter and Stephen Colbert and the Half-Blood Prince.
- Finally - and I didn't think this would be a problem, but it is definitely a problem - PLEASE keep your fanfics R-rated or less! We've been getting some stuff that… I just… well, I'd never heard of some of this stuff before. And then I made the mistake of looking it up on the Internet. Please, just... just stop.
That's it! Actually, one more thing. It turns out that a lot of people are submitting fanfics with similar storylines - great minds think alike! However, we've received more than enough submissions on the following topics:
Stephen saves the world Stephen the astronaut Stephen is a superhero Stephen becomes President Stephen hangs with Jesus Stephen abducted by aliens Stephen and Jon Stewart are buddy cops Stephen in the Wild West Stephen wins aliens over to our side Stephen the race car driver, with special appearance by Paul Dinello Stephen presides over futuristic alien techno-paradise Stephen on Broadway
OK, those are the rules – keep emailing me those submissions (firstname.lastname@example.org!)
Get crackin! Come November 1st, you won't have the time for such shenanigans, thanks to NaNoWriMo.
