sangerin: Kermit and Piggy (muppets)

During our MICF adventures, the GF and I went to FanFiction Comedy, an hour-long laugh-fest during which four young Kiwi comedians and invited guests wrote and read out their fan fiction offerings to a rather fannish audience.

On the night we attended, we had:

An Australian AU of the Babysitters Club, featuring Crystal, Sophie and Stacey, by Kate McLennan

The Famous Five grew up (all the way to the nursing home), by Heidi O'Loughlin

Entourage RPF by a random Kiwi boy (Joseph Moore)

A smidgeon of supposedly "Paranormal Activity" fic by the other random Kiwi boy (Tom Furniss), and

The most entirely awesome fic of the night, the Grand Designs/Bob the Builder (Kevin McCloud/Wendy) crossover, featuring cameo appearances by Postman Pat, Bananas in Pyjamas, Playschool, and the Teletubbies. Rated R. I'm tweeting at Cal Wilson (the author) until she agrees to post it.


IF YOU ARE IN MELBOURNE -- you REALLY ought to go see their show, because it is honestly awesome, even if the incredibly awesome Rose thinks that ff.net is "the place to go" for fic. (I was sitting in the front row muttering "pit of voles, pit of voles". The girl next to me (that wasn't my GF, she was on my other side) laughed and nodded.

Eeeeeeee, that sounds brilliant!

I swear I've heard about the GD/BtB fic elsewhere (on Facebook?) as well - wasn't she watching BtB with her toddler and needed to undermine it in her own way?

BSC and FF fanfic! AND BtB (I've written it, too). How fab!!!

Yep, I was squeeing about it on Facebook the other day. The author is one of my favourite Australian (well New Zealand really) comedians so while I was happy she was there I was stoked what she wrote was brilliant. If you're curious this is Cal Wilson's 3 minute highlight performance (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zwyI6OQr7XQ) or the longer and funnier speech from the Comedy debate Why Sex is Better than Food, she was part of the negative (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KV6MX46EncM).

Best part of the mocking of Fanfic.net was reading out real descriptions of stories and since it was the Titanic anniversary they chose to pick on that fandom.
