|Challenge Name||Herbert Lives!|
|Challenge Type||Personal Challenge|
|Description||The premise of this challenge is that the the challenge-accepting author will write a story where Herbert the Pig Lives!|
Possible directions include, but are not limited to:
1. Herbert makes a bold escape from the clutches of the Pack and gets adopted by Buffy.
2. Herbert is rescued by Harmony of all people, and is later pivotal in "saving" the Scoobies from one of their future events.
3. Herbert, who was Buffy's stuffed pig, but Dawn uses him for her costume, comes back to life during Halloween and haunts Xander.
4. Herbert is the school mascot and the Pack respects that. They don't eat him. Because, hey, rare hamburgers are good enough if they're feeling the need for chewy meat. They take him and raise him as their own. They're the ultimate champions of their school and prank other neighboring schools. Principal Flutie still dies, but it's not their fault. After all, this is Sunnydale.
5. Herbert is a smarter than average pig. He's Babe's babe; shipped all the way from England. Somehow he gets Xander's attention while they're prowling around him and Xander changes his mind. Come Halloween, Xander "dresses," Herbert as the Razorback Hero. Sunnydale will never be the same.
Okay, so that's five ideas. You can use them or you can find your own inspiration. Either way, the premise is AU; so very AU. I'd love to see someone run with it.
So basic rules:
1. Herbert lives.
2. Add in the crossover. It can be anything, but it might be entertaining to see a Pig in Space (Hello SG1) or a DC Pig (Seems Krypto isn't alone. There are loads of superhero pets). Anything that rocks the crossover works for me.
3. Must follow the rules of the site, but otherwise, have at it. Herbert doesn't even have to be the main character, so long as he lives and we get to see him often. :)
4. Have fun with it.
Okay, that's it. That's the challenge. Go forth. I can hardly wait.
