From here, because I wanted to.

What's the crackiest, zaniest fic you've ever read? It was probably that terrifying Bert/Ernie slash that was on Yuletide a while ago.
What's the crackiest fic you've ever read that you thought was good? Either A Dawn of Many Colors, which is Lord of the Rings weirdness that features the author and a girl from the present; or this amazing, short, Life on Mars Mpreg fic, I have no idea where to find it.
Oh, jeez. I forgot Jayne Eyre! Someone inserted Jayne from Firefly into the story of Jane Eyre, replacing the eponymous character.
What's something silly someone wrote that you didn't think would be good, but was? Not an author, actually. Although I once wrote a monologue about Sir Isaac Newton's thesis which got some good reviews.
What's a crack premise you don't get? They can all be valid! As Tim Gunn says, "make it work".
What's the point of wing!fic? I see no point whatsoever. The first slash fic I ever read was Orlando Bloom/Viggo Mortensen wing!fic, and I didn't get it then, don't get it now.
What's a crack premise you see around a lot? I suppose Mpreg counts. I love mpreg, and seek it out, though, so I have some bias.
What's something silly that you would never write? There's nothing I would never not try to write. I don't usually succeed.
What's something silly that you think I would never write? Oh, man, I can think of a lot of things I hope to see you write, and once I go there, I don't want to jinx anything.
What's something silly you wish more people would write? Paint Your Wagon slash! I demand it.
What's something other people think is crack that you don't think is crack? See below, I clearly forgot that magical genderswap diseases don't happen in real life. 0_o.
What's something you think is crack that other people seem to take seriously?
What's the silliest thing you've ever written? Self-Insert Mary Sue Harry Potter fic. Jesus, hold me.
What's your favorite cracky thing? Mpreg. Moar babies, plz. Ooooh, also magical genderswap diseases! I totally forgot about them. See above.
Do you see "crack!fic" as a separate genre than other fic? What about fics with crack premises that feel like they still have something important to say about the characters and canon's themes? There's a Jane Eyre/The Eagle crossover fic I've been reading that talks a lot about the characters feelings on freedom and slavery and independence that I think is very relevant. The aforementioned Life on Mars Mpreg fic really reminded you that the whole universe of the fandom exists in one man's head. Crack can really help unwind issues that characters can't be faced with in the real world!
Will you prompt me (oh-god-please) with 1-5 silly things that you'd actually really want to read? Slash Report Slash. A Sharpe of Sharpe/Dobbin of Vanity Fair crossover, possibly featuring the Battle of Waterloo. Paint Your Wagon threesome fic.

Actually, I may come back and add more to this later. I'll have to think.
