Smash Fiction is a debate-style comedy podcast in which a rotating cast of nerds argue on behalf of their chosen fictional characters. Only one can win!

Smashtoberfest '17 comes to an explosive end in the second of our episodes that could realistically be titled "#YesAllDraculas!" The Count Dracula from Bram Stoker's most famous work has been killed, leaving a dangerous instability in the Dracuverse. The position of Dracula Prime must be filled, and several alternatives arrive. One Dracula! Two Draculas! Three Draculas! FOUR DRACULAS! Ah ah ah!

Which lord of vampires will defeat his opponents and ascend to the rightful ruler of Transylvania? Will Castlevania's Dracula develop a strategy beyond teleporting and throwing fireballs? Can Marvel's Dracula use spacecraft, death rays, and the Internet to eliminate the competition? How will the movie Van Helsing's Dracula leverage his swarm of gross, flying rat-babies? And what in the name of Lion Jesus is Dracula: Dead and Loving It's Dracula doing here?!

In the third installment of Smashtoberfest 2017, a certain ragged group of zombie apocalypse survivors hanging out in Georgia have officially seen just about all they care to see of the walking dead, especially now that winter is coming, and with it, rumors of some new kind of "ice zombies." Fortunately, they've received intelligence that somewhere in the frozen north, in a place that may or may not be Canada, lies a hidden cache of weapons, primarily swords and knives, made from a metal that could turn the tide in the group's quest for survival. If there are more deposits of this "Valyrian steel" in the area, it might even be worth moving up there, despite the cold of the season.

But Rick and the gang aren't completely stupid. Before anyone starts packing, they need someone to drive up there, scout the area, find the metal, and figure out if it's as effective as the rumors say. Of course, there will be walkers everywhere. As it turns out, more than one kind.

For a mission this dangerous, there's only one logical choice: Michonne, the katana-wielding uber-badass who slices through entire hordes like it's nothing. But is she prepared for what waits for her beyond the...Canadian border? Or will she fall to the mysterious species of ice-themed monstrosities known throughout Westeros as the white walkers...before rising again, with blue eyes?

Special guest hosts Jaime Smith and Money from the Unspoiled! Podcast Network join us for the first time this week, and quickly learn that when you play the game of Smash Fiction, you win, or you complain loudly about the judge's decision until the end of time. There is no zombie-infested middle ground.

Jinkies, gang! Some really strange stuff has been happening over at Freddy Fazbear's Pizza. Apparently the lovable animatronic animals have been walking around on their own, appearing suddenly in doorways while the Toreador March plays, and scaring the shit out of people before horribly murdering them. Looks like we've got a mystery on our hands!

Fred, Daphne, Velma, Shaggy, and Scooby-Doo are determined to figure out what, exactly, is going on inside Freddy's, and they'll have five nights to do so using security cameras, an unreliable electrical system, and of course, the power of friendship. But Freddy, Bonnie, Chica and Foxy aren't exactly harmless children's entertainers. Can the Scooby Gang pull the mask off this mystery, no doubt revealing it the be the mundane scheme of a local elderly person? Or will Freddy and his friends put a premature end to the gang's investigative career...and start training them in their new jobs as corpses slowly rotting inside robotic animal suits?

Smashtoberfest is upon us once again, and we're kicking things off with a contest between two Stephen King villains -- specifically, two Stephen King villains who were brought to life by transcendent film portrayals! The Shining's Jack Torrance, fresh off his recent stint of axe redrum fueled by writer's block and hotel ghosts, is freezing to death in the snow when he is miraculously rescued by one of his biggest fans, serial killer Annie Wilkes of Misery! With his legs crippled from frostbite and a psychopath demanding he write her a novel without the use of the letter N, can Jack find a way to escape Annie's cabin and live to drink again with dead people? Or will Annie break his spirit (along with his ankles) and dispatch him before he sees the first printing of his brand new, curse-word-free book?

Also, we somehow manage to make an episode that seems to be legitimately scaring Liz Logan, but that simultaneously contains all the Treehouse of Horror references. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.

Well, looks like Team Ohana finally got themselves a nice, shiny trophy with its nice, shiny gem! Guess they can just lean back and relax now, right? ...oh wait, there's a giant Phyrexian invasion headed their way. I'm sure it'll be fine. They have all the warriors from the Nexus Tournament on their side, plus a bunch of other Extraordinary League members joining them. What could Phyrexia POSSIBLY have up their sleeve that could prove a threat to them? ...wait, what the hell is THAT?!

Dante meets his brothers in (bare) arms; Archer strengthens his Bonds; Stitch executes his most impressive throw yet; Mordin takes to the skies; Luna just wants to go to the zoo; and one of the characters won't make it out of Nexus City alive.
