...or maybe this is why you definitely should. I dunno. But it's hilarious either way.

Friend is reading Harry Potter for the first time. He suddenly realizes he's read a fanfiction Order of the Phoenix instead of the real one.


More. So much more. )

From [livejournal.com profile] slaymesoftly:

1. Leave a comment to this post - specifically saying that you would like a letter.
2. I will give you a letter. (If you don't want a letter but feel like commenting anyway, feel free.)
3. Post the names of five fictional characters whose names begin with that letter, and your thoughts on each. The characters can be from books, movies, or TV shows.


I got B! So, five off the top of my head:

Vague spoilers for BtVS, Twin Peaks, The Wire, Foucault's Pendulum, Dr Horrible )

OK, this is purely for my own sake, so I'm hoping there's at least someone out there who thinks this is a good idea. I don't know if anyone else has ever thought there should be a Buffy/Dostoevsky crossover, or that Faith/Raskolnikov is a logical pairing, but...

Anyway, Chapter 2 of Shelf Life, in which our heroes get sent into Giles' bookshelf, this time finding themselves in 1860s S:t Petersburg. Written for [livejournal.com profile] still_grrr's Classic Literature month.

Title: Shelf Life
Author: Beer Good ([livejournal.com profile] beer_good_foamy)
Prompt: 153: Crime And Punishment
Fandom: Buffy s5-ish, w/crossovers
Characters: Ensemble
Word Count: 1764
Summary: You take one Magic Box, one brand-new shelf of fiction, one spell gone slightly wonky, and suddenly our heroes find themselves fully booked. Geddit? Booked? Well, you will.

Book The First: In Which There Are No Giants

Book The Second: In Which Nobody Gets Murdered

On an exceptionally hot evening early in July... )

Hey, this is nifty:

And on that note, this month is Classic Literature month at [livejournal.com profile] still_grrr, so let's see if I can create a sort of multi-chapter multi-crossover fic type thingy. The first challenge is "Ancient Greece to Renaissance", so let's step back to 1605...

Fandom: Buffy (s5-ish)/Don Quixote of La Mancha

Having seen Tennant in Hamlet and read Bill Bryson's Shakespeare (both of which were excellent) lately, I just thought I'd write down some thoughts on the use of Shakespeare in the Buffyverse. Quite a few thoughts. This gets long, and covers spoilers for all of the Jossverse and Shakespeareverse (as if anyone doesn't know how his plays end).

Joss likes Shakespeare. This would be obvious even if we didn't know that he, for instance, used to hold Shakespeare readings at his house for the Buffy cast; there's quite a lot of allusions to Shakespeare in his stories, both explicit and implicit ones. This obviously won't be a complete list of all parallels between Shakespeare and Whedon, and I wouldn't be surprised if someone points out that Joss references a bunch of plays I don't even mention here. Lay on, Macduff! And damn'd be he who first cries 'Hold! Enough!' )

And yet again I win at life. If life is fic. And only 3rd place. But still, pretty.



[livejournal.com profile] still_grrr and [livejournal.com profile] xlivvielockex rock in equal amounts.




Also, here's a meme i stole from [livejournal.com profile] zandra_x because if I could figure out a way to inject books directly into my bloodstream, I would. Feel free to pick up on it, anyone who wants.

My reading habits in a few short questions )

Good and bad and none of it particularly ficcy.

The good: look at this lovely banner the wonderful [livejournal.com profile] xlivvielockex made for me for completing Minor Character March over at [livejournal.com profile] still_grrr:

Cluffyness!



The bad: this is supposed to be a writing journal only, but this really hit me and I'd just like to join [livejournal.com profile] xlivvielockex, [livejournal.com profile] blueanddollsome and others, here's some rambling: Kurt Vonnegut is dead )
