It was fun bashing together early-noughts style fic - especially since I didn't have to write any of the boring bits, just the lines I needed.

I'm not generally a fan of writing badfics for purpose: where's the observational humour in writing something bad and then lampshading it yourself? This (and other 1999 stuff) is a bit of a special case, because fanfic is hard to find from the timeframe, so you can't find something that 'just about' fits. In looking for missions for A&O, I managed to scrape together all of seven Animorphs fanfics with OCs in at all, and several of those don't qualify as mission-worthy.

But if you do decide to go that route, I can only recommend taking the badfic "seriously". Don't write deliberately over-the-top stuff; write what you would actually write if you were however many years younger and trollier. Then switch your present-day brain back on and tear it to pieces.
