An Ode to Ratliff , by Ikaros
A musical MST salute to everyone's favorite Net author 
Where No Fanfic Has Gone Before , by Loren Haarsma
A fanfictional send-up of Star Trek in general and Ratliff in particular. Well-written and hilarious. 
Dark Marrissa #1: The Master Builders , by Adam Cadre
A disturbing (but funny) off-shoot of Ratliff's stories. After Clara leaves the Enterprise for a happier life on a fledgling colony, Marrissa begins to exhibit god-like powers and signs of complete insanity. The survivors of a peaceful planet she has eradicated identify her as one of their gods -- Manat, the Destroyer. Soon she becomes empress of the galaxy, kills all who stand in her way, and begins construction of a tower to complete her journey to godhood -- and it's up to Clara to stop her.

Star Trek Infinity: Traveling in Time Speeder, by Charles Rando 
A fanfictional crossover purporting to do for "Time Speeder" what DS9's "Trials and Tribble-ations" did for "The Trouble With Tribbles." The crew of the USS Infinity is sucked into Marrissa's universe and linked with its characters, and they must find a way to escape. If you can get past the captain's (and the author's) name without making any Amazing Rando riffs, you'll find some clever jokes in here. 
Borged to Death!, by Roger M. Wilcox 
A hilarious spoof of both Trek and Marrissa in screenplay format. It's the Federation's last stand against the Borg, and only The Weapon can save them. (And if you can't figure out what The Weapon is before you read the story, you haven't been paying attention.)

History Repeating, by "Pete Plum", aka Bart Fargo

Digital Empire, by  "Pete Plum", aka Bart Fargo

Thank You For the Music, Kids' Crew Style, by Roger M. Wilcox 
Roger Wilcox, in an almost Ratliffian plot development, gives us this tale where, in the 24th century, Elvis impersonators are passe. Nope, instead those wacky kids go crazy for the musical stylings of ABBA. And the Kid's Crew sings ABBA tunes. In fact, you might say they're the original A*Teens. If they hadn't been born 400 years later, of course. 
Hi-Q, by Bart Fargo 
A Marrissa story in less than 100 words. 
Mharrissa, Author unknown 
In this alternate tale of Marrissa, she's apparently a sex-crazed half-elf. Hey, I just archive these, folks.

Han Solo and a character we've never seen before decide to grab some other pilots and blow up Marrissa. 
Spoof Trek, by Aris Merquoni

During a down time on the dibs list, several mistings authors got together to write a round robin detailing what would happen if  Mike and the bots got trapped in the Marrissa-verse. Technically, this story is still ongoing. If you wish to contribute, email me at mblackwl@ix.netcom.com 
The Stephen Ratliff Drinking Game, by Todd Pence 
Although many might say the reading the Marrissa series will drive you to drink, just in case it hasn't, well, this game should supply you with all the reasons you need to imbibe sweet, sweet booze. This piece brought to you by the Booze Council. Booze! Do we really need to say more? 
The Ratliff Conspiracy Theory, by Kassi Pittman 
Wow. Several interesting theories on Stephen's true identity are advanced in this interesting piece. Still, no one's claimed he's John Gault yet. That's a good sign, huh? 
Modern Major Overlord by Rottweiller 
A long forgotten tribute to Marrissa where a Gilbert and Sullivan tune 
is mercilessly used as the basis for a song celebrating Marrissa's glory. 
A Loss of Voice by Rob Morris
In a crossover between the Big M and the "Starting Over" universe (which I won't even attempt to explain here) Marrissa receives some bad news.
