Re: the "marriage contract", which I stumbled on a few weeks ago - http://cissasghost.livejournal.com/181278.html

I seriously sat there staring at the screen reading "your birthday, January 4th" about 18 times. It was like, oh look, there goes my mental distance from this. Bye-bye, mental distance. *OMG hyperventilate*

"I even wrote stories about how Snow White knighted the dwarves and Cinderella was super-nice to her maids"
EEeeeee!!! I knew it! You wrote *fanfic*! I *knew* you were one of us fandom-type peoples! You're just cool like that. ;)

Yes, as a little kid, I wrote fanfic before fanfic was a word! I didn't think of it that way.

I've wanted to re-interpret other writings, too. Like, writing a story of life after Gilead, from people who escaped it in the Handmaid's Tale. Or retelling the story of the central relationship in the Well of Loneliness, from Mary (the femme bisexual woman's) point of view.

Those aren't 'verses I know (well, I've heard of 'The Handmaid's Tale', obviously, but not read it), but, you should! It's fun!

. . and now I must stop myself from lauching into the full-on, wild-eyed soapbox pitch as to why fandom will save the world and everyone should write fic. (But really, we will, and you should. ;) )
