The military occupants of the refuge say that they are acting in protest to the jail sentences of two ranchers who just began serving prison time on arson charges.

At least, that’s the story in real life. But in the sweetly flowing words of the newest homoerotic fanfiction to sweep social media, #BundyEroticFanFic tells a whole different set of story of, uh, occupation.

Fans quickly joined in on the action as well, Tweeting Meloy their best punchlines as well:

Have a tip we should know?
