Friday fics — John Oliver RPF

I'm a longtime fan of The Bugle, John Oliver and Andy Zaltzman's weekly news comedy podcast. I've seriously considered trying to nominate it for Yuletide, but I wasn't sure if anyone would be willing to write it for me, especially as I was having difficulty framing a request more coherent than "please write me anything whatsoever having to do with The Bugle". Maybe this year will be the year.

Based on a true story.

(The real-world John Oliver is advised to avoid reading this one, lest he rip a hole in the space-time continuum.)

John Oliver discovered Daily Show slash fiction and is outraged…that he isn't getting any in any of these stories. So of course someone wrote a story about that. It is awesome.

This is an ode to how much I love Liz. Featuring a large amount of John Oliver, various FakeNews alumni, and Zaltor the Merciless. I mean Andy. I mean whut?

"Tell me the story of when Andy and John tried once and once only to go on a Proper Real Not-Kidding Date, and the chaos and hilarity that ensued." - Appleteeth

This is more like three ficlets, and the first and third are John/Andy. Surprisingly adorable.

I'll…try to read something slightly less niche before next Friday, I promise.

If you want to keep working this niche that would be ok too. /fellow Bugle fan
Hail, fellow Bugler! Do we have some kind of secret handshake and/or gang sign? I feel like it should involve bird flipping, and would probably require upwards of an hour to execute in its unabridged form.

I would be more than happy to continue in this vein! Sadly, while The Bugle has a dedicated fandom, it does not, largely, appear to be that sort of fandom. Although someone did post this on The Bugle Wiki.
