Terry Jones on Torture. I think he's pissed.
Eric Idle says, "Fuck you FCC" (I believe this is from someone on my FList who posted it first).
And now! The Mary Sue meme that I think is gakked from everyone on LJ:
1. Use fanfiction.net's Search >> Story By Summary and look up your name in either Harry Potter or Lord of the Rings.
2. If there are any Mary Sues that share your name, pick the worst-sounding one and post the summary.
So many to choose from in HP land. It's so very hard to choose.
According to the summary, "there's alot of twin wizards and witches around us!! even harry potter has a twin sister that he doesnt even know she exists!!! this story is mainly about 4 characters named max, nicky, liz, and yuri falling in love."
Right now, you can tell it's a total Mary Sue. Here's a paragraph. Yes, both title and paragraph are reproduced here (cut-and-paste) and published exactly as is. No editing on my part:
"Yuri, Wake up! Its our first day of school!" someone said, then that someone shook me. It was my twin sister, Liz. "Wha?" I said cluelessly as I sat up. "Its our first day!! I can't wait to go to Hogwarts!" Liz said. Wha?" I continued saying cluelessly. If you haven't noticed, I'm not a morning person. I'm kind of like a vampire. "Get dressed! We're going to leave in like. 10 min!! I can't wait!! Hurry up before Nicky comes in with Max!! They're coming with us today!! Isn't that exciting? Well, I think it is!!" Liz was all hyper about this. She's always happy when Nicky and Max visits. She has the biggest crush on Nicky. I'm SUPPOST to have a crush according to Liz's Diary on Max, but I just like him as a friend. He's my BFF and he's pretty nice. "Ok, all right, I'll get dressed!" I finally said. Liz was begging me to get dressed. I went into the bath with my clothes. I was getting dressed. I brushed my hair (I never do, but I just did anyways.) and I brushed my teeth. Today, I wore a purple t-shirt and black pants. I mea, we have to change into robes anyways so I don't really care if my clothes don't match. "Yuri, hurry up!" Liz said. I don't get it. I mean Nicky and Max are my BFFs and Liz's, so we get to see them all the time! There's nothing to be really excited about. well are there?
From LotR fandom:
Such an embarassment of riches. I especially love the Mary Sue-Legolas fic at the top of the list:
Nothing Without You. According to the summary: "Sequel to Don't Yank Me Down- Leggy and Liz make it back to Earth."
I won't inflict a paragraph on you. The title summary pretty much says it all.
I kinda feel bad about getting a nasty giggle over this.
Speaking of fighting the Sue: I gotta get back to Living History.
