Mostly harmless stuff, turning my robes pink, banishing my hair, things like that. I grew up not too dissimilarly from you.

I thought some of them were pretty funny actually.* Upon learning he's a wizard in ''[[ Harry Potter and the Horrible Relatives]]'', Harry asks if he can't just be an alien instead.

Pity the story has disappeared; anyone who finds it, please post a link here.* In ''FanFic/TenRandomCharacters'', Reflet decides that Zelda is this after she makes an [[{{Pun}} Incredibly Lame Pun]].* This is a sign that Team 7 is growing closer together in ''FanFic/ATeachersGlory''.

Okay, maybe that was a little funny.* In the ''Series/{{Wonderfalls}}''/''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' crossover ''[[ Wonders Never Cease]]'', Ethan Rayne manages to get himself torn to LudicrousGibs by a trickster deity.

The LIC spy finds herself trapped on a resort planet famed for its luxurious spas. Both have been given an account to enjoy their fates to the fullest for one month... the time it would take for any transport to get where they are, since EO has bought every seat in and out of said locations for that month.
