Someone mentioned bonuspoints for using extra series? Or do we want to add locations? Or a max (or min) of words to be used?

Adding series gets exponentially harder to do well as the total number rises, locations should probably be a "bonus points if you can work this in" thing (possibly with an emphasis on fantastical ones, e.g. Mordor, Lilliput, Jusenkyo, Barsoom…), and I would suggest that word count should be a "target range" kind of thing, lest the result be either one of those crapfics that needs a dozen chapters to reach 1000 words, or else an unfinishable million-word epic. My 2¢, take as you like.

Looking at what I did with PowerShell, it'd be fairly easy to create a new list of locations, provide a variable with one of those at random, and output the thing with the challenge.

Potential bonus categories as klichés, genre´s and tertiary crossovers...

Then again, would one really take a challenge still if it encompasses 5 or 6 or even more statements?

A crossover and a plot is fairly easy to wrap around and keep to one-liners as a response, but anything more gets progressively harder, and will require more typing to provide the response. Not to mention more reading, and the point of this is more or less to fire off a quick-reply, and coast through it all reading.

That´s why said you have the two crossovers as the primary and then the rest as bonus categories.

Huh, well personally i think most of the time oneliner responses are uninteresting, it´s not a story at all, so i would WANT something more serious.
