Even in the midst of the ever-expanding Astro-kerfuffle, if you've got a job, the crew of the Serenity can do it. Don't much care what it is. Even if the job is to help a weird guy named Zorg get his hands on four stones hidden inside the body of a blue alien opera singer. Mal and the gang converge on Fhloston Paradise and get immediately embroiled in all the screaming, shooting, exploding nonsense going on there, but in the confusion, River Tam, the genius telepath who "ain't quite right," slips away to find the stones by herself. She is soon confronted by a woman with orange hair and questionable taste in space fashion, the fifth element herself, Leeloo. Conflict is inevitable between these two supernaturally gifted warriors. Will River dance gracefully (and barefoot) over the fallen form of another opponent, or is Leeloo the only power in the 'verse that can stop her?

Dan and Miles team up against Kit and Sharon in a spousal battle of husbands and wives while MeganBob presides from her space throne! Also featuring conversations about sex, bodily functions, and Disney movies. But you already knew that.

In the latest match dictated by a Smash Fiction Patron, there's a dragon on the loose, and two dragon tamers in town! Well, one dragon tamer, at the very least; Berk native Hiccup Haddock literally wrote the book on how to train dragons, and has vowed to apply all his empathic Viking intuition toward bringing this new one into the fold. His rival is less of a trainer than a finder, and he's a finder less of dragons specifically than of fantastic beasts in general, but the wizarding world's own Newt Scamander is similarly determined to secure the beast within his not-terribly-secure magical briefcase. Will Hiccup find himself figuratively toothless against so powerful an opponent, or will Newt's worry-free philosophy backfire and cause him to suffer more than twice?

Featuring Kit at her angriest, MeganBob at her silliest, and the return of THE SPACE JUDGE.

In an airport bar somewhere in this terrifying, apocalyptic world in which modern youth consumption trends indicate that disaffected teens are no longer being swayed by advertising, 1960s Madison Avenue superstar Don Draper (not his real name) is currently engaged in a desperate attempt to get his job back after indulging yet again in his persistent hobbies of drinking and adultery. His challenge: to sell a bottle of awful (but, in fairness, totally metal) perfume to Daria Morgendorffer, the ultimate disaffected teen, Earth's foremost slinger of sarcasm and mutterer in monotone! Can Don break down Daria's walls and convince her to give in to her deepest desires, brought to you by Lucky Strike? Or will Daria crush the ad man's soul beneath the sheer force of her world-weary teenage nihilism?

Featuring anti-capitalist rants, passionate discussions about Mad Men, opening arguments in the form of a listicle, and the Smash Fiction debut of Claire Mulkerin!

With the dark truth behind the Nexus Tournament revealed, the League faces down the magic-using, shapeshifting villain who's been manipulating everything. Can they put a stop to his evil machinations? What about the trophy that they came here to get in the first place? And what new/old threat shows up to throw a monkey wrench into the whole business?

Dante is tempted by the dark side; Stitch becomes a living weapon; Archer performs a public service announcement; Mordin scavengers some new technology; and Luna's just the best, you guys.
