I needed to convey cheesy, schmoopy, blatantly manipulated eye candy for a digital "dust jacket", so I used Photoshop to blend:
I treasure the great comments this story has inspired:
A few of the comments it inspired at FanFiction.net make life worth living.
My all-time favorite:
Nominee of the 2003 Spooky Award for Outstanding Humor
I entered "Wedding Fit for a Princess" into the Spookys as a prank, because I was under the impression that badfic parodies were ineligible. The story didn't win, place, or receive an honorable mention, but it was a nominee, ranking with some "big names". Hey, if Deslea didn't even get an Honorable Mention in this category, I shouldn't feel bad.
According to Microsoft Word '98, this story has a 2nd semester Second Grade reading level on the Flesch-Kincaid formula. That means a 7-or 8-year-old should be able to read this story. Let's pray they can write better.
At the time I wrote this story, there was discussion on the WhyIncision mailing list about humorous errors in authentic badfic posted to alt.tv.x-files.creative. I'd also been a introduced to hilarious badfic parodies in 1998 by the now defunct "Badfic Hall of Shame" website. Having read a large sample of XF fanfic, I felt I was ready to tackle a badfic of my own. I took the advice found at Bad Fanfic! No Biscuit!
Obviously, publishing this story without someone to proofread it would only enhance its "style". There's an unintentional error ("Assistant" is misspelled) that I noticed after posting. All other errors (grammatical, syntactical, logistical) are intentional, and total 200.
Someday, when I'm wrestling writer's block, I'll list every error and use it as a beta reader test.
