Cramp is the popular term used by many popslash fans to refer to the pairing of Nsync member Chris Kirkpatrick and...an inanimate lava lamp. It is generally, but not always, treated as a crack pairing, and is partially based on an anecdote Chris used to tell about JC Chasez accidentally breaking a lava lamp that he bought in Europe.
Examples in fic
- Where Did You Put the Lava Lamp? by J.M. Shirley, cited by most as the "original" Lava Lamp fic, or the one that started the trend.
- Also Includes Wax, Water And Evil by Turps
- Illumination by pensnest
- Where the Edges Blur by mira/stellamira (This story bucks the trend by pairing JC Chasez and Justin Timberlake with the lamp instead of Chris Kirkpatrick.)
