Community description:Fanfiction and meta set in the world reported by The Onion
Hi and welcome to the Onionverse! Have you heard of Our Lord and Savior The Onion? It's only the Finest News Source in the whole world! Well, fortunately, this community isn't looking to convert you. Rather, it's for those of us who already know and like The Onion and, specifically, want to write fic set in its bizarre universe.

It was made on a whim, whilst rereading The Book of Known Knowledge, running under the agreement that it's such a travesty such a delightfully funny work doesn't have any fanfiction (much less fandom!) as far as we could see. Furthermore, although we have all been in fandom for years and years, we considered it an additional tragedy that we hadn't all shared a fandom since, well, ever. But as everyone likes (or at least tolerates) The Onion, we figured we could use this as a stepping stone... an excuse to have friends read fic outside of their usual fandoms, that is.

But if you too like the Onion and you too would like to write fanfiction set in its bizarre little world, by all means come in come in! ♥

The reason why everything is friends locked is because, well, the Onion is R18 and its brand of humor is terribly offensive at times. But assuming you like it and are not easily offended and are looking to lambast (or lampoon) your favorite (or not so favorite) fandom characters, please do join us~

In terms of activities, in an effort to mimic the original source material, types of fic/meta are split into four prompt posts:
1. Local News (Fanfiction set in the world of The Onion)
2. Actual News (Articles lambasting characters and events in the tone of The Onion)
3. The News In Photos (Captioned pieces of un/official art)
4. What Do You Think? (Editorials - character to character advice column, soapbox-style inserts, and characters' reactions to extra-canon events)

Furthermore, these posts will make up an issue. The next issue (and theme) will be released once each section has at least two articles and one section has seven, meaning that each "issue" will have thirteen "articles". What is an article? It can be either fic or meta or critique, etc. Obviously it should be related to The Onion, but outside of that, go wild.
