March Update and The Strategic Badfic Reserve

Good news and (vaguely) bad today.

First up is the good. Episode 259 is nearly finished and should be out by this weekend or early next week at the latest. Episode 260 is also in progress, with the goal of having it out within a week or so as well. Episodes 261 through 264 have also been lined up, just pending on fic sizes and other matters.

Now for the bad. Unfortunately, our Strategic Badfic Reserve has been getting rather low of late. When we started the Rebuild of Elmer Studios, we lined up a number of fanfics early on for potential use. By this point, we have used all of those, as well as a good number of ones that we have found along the way. Unfortunately, a number of those that were lined up early on have also gone missing since then, victims of the vagrities of the interwebs.

The end result is that we're largely down to our last few "reserve" badfics. And, while we are always searching for new material, we're also facing a very high rejection rate along the way. Besides, let's be honest, wading through The Pit is not fun at the best of times.

So as a result, we're open for badfic donations. We're mostly in the market for ones from our favorite target series, Robotech/Macross, Bubblegum Crisis, Cowboy Bebop, Transformers, GI Joe, and Marvel and DC Superheroes (ps: we are old), but will gladly a fic outside of those if it's amusingly bad and we can get lines off of it. Donations can be left here via comments, or emailed to us at elmerstudios00 (at)


  1. I can keep an eye out while dredging for my own material. We're not looking into those shows so its no big deal. How much blood is appropriate to be oozing from my eyes where you'll riff it?

  2. If you're laughing while the blood is oozing, then you're on to a winner. It's what I do
