Pre-emptive Strike

Two brave and daring lads set to contest
on the roiling sea, that fierce silver plane
of tumultuous life. Great creatures tried to
nibble on them, yet were no great deterrent.
Indeed, Beowulf son of Ecgtheow
seemed to gain new strength from every battle.
He began to pull ahead; quite a feat
while swimming in chainmail. He looked to win,
but Breca, who’d been getting really sick
of the unstoppable Geat, took action.
He conked the mighty warrior on the head,
and so the great Geat drowned, while still a boy.

Later, a vicious monster named Grendel,
quite truly spawn of Hell, began to feed
upon the people of Hrothgar’s great hall.
Alas, there existed none to best him.
Soon the Danes were no more; the last of them
having disappeared down Grendel’s gullet.
Today, we must do without wooden clogs,
Amsterdam, and Hans Christian Anderson –
but we’ve been otherwise unaffected.

An interesting and thoughtful post (from someone I don't know) on Harry Potter that, while it is not quite a rant, certainly fits our purpose can be found here.

A challenge, therefore, which I highly doubt anyone will take, but here it is: rewrite a part of Harry Potter so that it's thematically consistent - either earlier stuff as YA, or later stuff as children's, or, for that matter, later stuff as true YA.

And kill off a character or two, while you're at it. Preferably Harry.

Also, overheard at gaming on Sunday...Collapse )

Old Man
The Old Man went out in his boat to fish. He had made the boat himself. It took him three days to make it. He tied a lure to his line and casted. He waited.
Then he popped a vein in his head and died.

Bye, Nyssa.
Nyssa. The very stereotype of "shittily-acted Doctor Who tits-and-arse assistant". Anyone complaining about 'iterary characters'; she appears in several Past Doctor Adventures, so she's a literary plank as well as a television one. So yeah, she's irritating and horrible and deserves a painful death in a thousand dodgy fanwankfics. To that end:

Now on BBC 1, a brand-new two part adventure with Sylvester McCoy as Doctor Who.

Welcome to Pushing Up Daisies, the community where you can kill off every literary character that ever pissed you off.

To kick things off, here is a short catharsis-fic I told mckittericks this morning.

A story including Neville Longbottom and a demon (PG-13)Collapse )
