Parks & Rec and Game of Thrones are terrific television shows for very, very different reasons. While one is a light, fun comedy that almost always leaves you feeling all warm and fuzzy, the other is dark and murder-y and full of dragons and scheming and human suffering. But what would happen if the people who create those worlds swapped places? Well now we know, thanks to Entertainment Weekly, who had the executive producers of Game of Thrones write up their version of a Parks & Rec episode and vice versa. You should go read the whole things, because they are essentially hilarious, professionally made fan-fic, but I’ve pulled out a few highlights for you below. Would watch. Would watch so hard.
First, a paragraph from the Parks & Rec episode Game of Thrones executive producers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss would write:
The Pawnee Avian Society, led by Councilman Jamm, strong-arms Leslie into building a park for Pawnee’s official bird, the Grizzled-Neck Pigeon. April, the Pale Woman, presides over the dedication, complete with burning garbage pyres. Ron sees a ghost (or a Tammy?) just as his handcrafted birdcage SPLINTERS, slicing Jean-Ralphio in half, breaking Tom’s legs, and rendering Jerry mute, save for his own name… “Jerry… Jerry…” Meanwhile, in Eagleton, Ann amasses a fleet of her own Grizzled-Necks, the Pigeon from the ceremony perched on her shoulder.
And now, two sentences from the Game of Thrones episode by Parks & Rec executive producers Michael Schur and Dan Goor:
As Tyrion and Varys explain the bureaucratic permit process, the prostitutes start having sex with each other.
Daenerys loses the vote 300–1. Things look bleak. Then her dragons fly around the room and set everyone on fire. She takes another vote and wins, 1–0.
This all sounds great except for one thing: LIL SEBASTIAN NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.
