Fandom Mad Libs!

fiercelydreamed got plagiarized (along with bibliotech and several others) -- some kid was copying their fics, changing the names and fandoms, and posting them. As One Tree Hill fic of all things! So instead of getting mad, she's taking the opportunity to host Fandom Mad Libs:

How to play, in three easy steps:
1. Pick a favorite scene from one of your own stories. (Please, please, your own stories. I'm not encouraging actual plagiarism here.)
2. Pick a fandom (the more it makes you want to spork your eyeballs out, the better), "recast" your story for that fandom, and use find/replace to change the character names in the story. (Not up for the effort of fixing pronouns and physical descriptions? Why bother?)
3. Post your retrofitted story snippet, or a link to it, in the comments here.

A lot of people are ignoring the part about a fandom that makes you want to spork, but I took it seriously, so changed Sean and Viggo to Kirk and Spock. OMG it's awful

For those of you who don't know Mad Libs, they're a set of silly tell-it-yourself story books that let the kid fill in the blanks:

 "One day, ________________ _________________ to New York to see the ______."
            name of person   past-tense verb                          noun

I'm tempted, but I'm not sure if I dare, LOL.

In the words of a great lyricist: "Don't hide your eyes, plagiarize!" *G*
