Beware The Count.

It's amazing some of the ideas fanfiction writers come up with for crossovers. Some are obvious, some aren't so obvious, and all too frequently they don't have the skill to pull them off, obvious or not. So, how's this for an idea? A crossover between Buffy the Vampire Slayer and The Muppets that involves the Count visiting Sunnydale before Buffy shows up. And it's played relatively straight. And it mostly works, much to my surprise. I have no idea how Jim Henson would react to the Count portrayed both as we know him, a being obsessed with counting, and as a dangerous vampire whose counting can be downright dangerous to your health. Whatever the case, best not let your kids read this one if they're precocious readers, it might freak them out.
