Question: If you're a fan but you have no time to do fannish things, what do you do?
Answer: Let AI do it for you.
OpenAI's new language model for text generation has been creating some buzz during the past week, and tonight I've been playing around with the online demo. I gave it some first lines I made up (they're pretty bad) to see if it would generate something that could pass for Buffy fanfic. Here are the results :-)
Story 1.1: Buffy and Spike were walking in the graveyard when they saw a vampire. Enter Edgard, a vampire that casts eugenics sterilization on some citizens wearing lifts, trying to steal their memories. Suddenly, Edgard begins to run errands. He finds real criminals, like first lady Amelia Earhart. He was about to kill John Sorrentino but he was inspired to kill some pals. When he is attacked by Atticus Basterlayov, Edgard takes his clothes off. They figure it might be Eny Yacim, a researcher and
Story 1.2: Buffy and Spike were walking in the graveyard when they saw a vampire. "Someone named Buffy," said Willow. "I think she got downed." "Obviously," said Buffy, laughing. Buffy stumbled up behind his keyboard and left the room, covered in sweat. Spike quickly saw her and faded away. She tapped her heel softly on the bedroom door and slipped out and left the house. After a while, Buffy took a picture with her. As soon as she knew he was asleep, Buffy came back and removed something
Story 1.3: Buffy and Spike were walking in the graveyard when they saw a vampire. Suddenly Kalia accepted Spike, and suddenly Sakuya said to Lucky Boy? Kalia's nephew Honoka jumped down and both of them said. I am nearly 40 now and am quite impressed by the Grace Obito. So anyway, today, one of my few honorary NEW survey members went down to his. One of the girls and Kalia were surrounded by vampires holding hands. The bar smell upset him and he almost began screaming in pain at the bar served
Story 2.1: When Angel entered Spike's crypt, the smell that hit him was Buffy's familiar vanilla scent. Her head was planted firmly in his chest by her. They returned in a single scene and Bart happens to watch and stare at him in shock. Angel: How do I know she's not Buffy?! SnappyBuffy: Holy fuck, how do you know she's not Buffy?! Dover: The smell is so overpowering, Angela could just smell it all! Angel's same words to their blonde friend: I f*cking we promise to dig it
Story 2.2: When Angel entered Spike's crypt, the smell that hit him was Buffy's familiar vanilla scent. "Give me an autograph," Callum blurted to Buffy's father, then stood up. "Buffy, you're not having any fun right now All right?" They walked to the crypt, and Buffy struggled against the frogskin suit they had made, then held them by Amy's shoulder, staring at the hard surface. Angel's tear flickered across the surface exactly where Buffy spun and snaked. "You know what she pulling off is? Havania," When Angel looked
Story 2.3: When Angel entered Spike's crypt, the smell that hit him was Buffy's familiar vanilla scent. Pinpointing her high against the wall, Spike didn't seem especially worried; he didn't think Angel could be hiding something under her lips, if she had a chance. Indeed, it seemed too good to be true. Still, he didn't or could't say anything about Angel's whereabouts, or the fact that Willow's body was frosty. Still, both of all of that spoke to Fire put to sleep, and Giles tried to squint the façade as Dean got
Attempt 3 (it's Anthony Stewart Head's 65th birthday today -- technically, yesterday -- so I had to try a Giles story as well)
Story 3.1: Giles was doing research on the strange demon Buffy had seen while sipping his cup of tea. During one of the zanzibar after tea, Dr. Giles asked if his report was true, and the young boy replied that it was. Giles then confirmed his will to speak to her about the report, and Snoke went chasing after him and trying to get the demon back under control. While Skirk was running to snare Spike's Dork Mail, an armored Sentry interviewed the Doom Knight, revealing that many of his demons lair in the Fantastic Wasteland were still stocked with a steady
Story 3.2: Giles was doing research on the strange demon Buffy had seen while sipping his cup of tea. Initially, it seemed that he meant mischievous body parts, but he soon discovered that Giles was actually part of the Bambi, a group of giant monsters who had given birth to mortals and they were too powerful to be more than mindless monster corpses. He offered Giles some wisdom on the matter as he ripped unfounded myths into slices. In season three, it seemed assassins and murderers were appearing rampant around the town. Ratas discovered that several members of the small-town raiders acting
Story 3.3: Giles was doing research on the strange demon Buffy had seen while sipping his cup of tea. Walking off the sofa, Silas smiled beyond recognition and decided to avoid business as usual. Somehow, it didn't seem like he had any guests left at all. Silas shook his head, strained to put the question aside. "I know I muttered something stupid. I dumb-assed..." "What do you mean?" Buffy asked curiously, after giving up Fred Flaherty and the rest of the Republicans air that needed to be cleaned out. Sil
Try it for yourself, it's fun!
