You understand that I mean “gay” as a genre, not an insult, right? Kind of horrible that I have to make that clarification. There used to be a movie store in the gay neighborhood of my city that had a series of shelves called “Neighborhood Favorites”. Which was their little pseudonym for movies with same sex romantic plot lines. So maybe I should say that instead, all the Khans, plus Amitabh, should be in “neighborhood favorite” movies.
I wrote this back when I read his autobiography, before he even had his babies. But I think that last option still works, just change it so that the babies are twins and Karan is covering up their background for their own safety by claiming they were from a surrogate.
Well, I am spending the day in bed, as promised in my post yesterday. Life is too difficult, and the world is too cold and rainy, best to stay under the blankets with Dog Hazel snoring in her big pink dog bed at my feet. And in that soothing easy mood, I will also right a soothing easy FanFic, based on the very first stories I learned and loved, fairy tales.
I figured people might be tired of Madhuri Madhuri Madhuri, and I also want to put this out in the world in hopes that Tips can do a last minute rewrite and highly improve their film.
Madhuri is wonderful and amazing, and ever since her post-children return to the industry, she isn’t getting the platforms she deserves. But I have ideas!
I was going to do a straight up fanfic, but then I realized it is more of a personal fantasy, so the best way would be to handle it more like a “Choose Your Own Adventure” type deal.
I already did a very long detailed take down of Bharat Ane Nenu this morning, including an overview of the Indian Constitution and it’s deeper social meaning, I’m exhausted, and I know at least one of you also watches both B99 and Indian film, so I am going to indulge myself with a fun easy recasting post. Plus, the news just broke that B99 was canceled, so the time is ripe for an Indian spin off.
I already put up a MASSIVE Anushka post and I didn’t want it to be too super super long, so I pulled this one story out. Also, this is the story I need the most help with because I can’t figure out how to end it.
Once again, you did the work for me! At least partially. For Anushka’s birthday, we were talking about who we wanted to see her with in her next movies, and that started me out with thinking about what those movies would be like.
Obviously, today is Star Wars day. And so I am reposting my Star Wars fanfic post
Well, it’s the B2 anniversary today. And I truly have NOTHING left to say about it. I’ll be reposting my index of full coverage in case you want a trip through memory lane, but in terms of thematic analysis and so on, I am empty. However, I can always write fanfic!!!! So the best I can do for new content is remix the plot and set it in different eras.
It’s Thursday, I want the week to be over, and yesterday it came up that a fair number of us watched/watch Parks and Rec. So why not kill a little work time by recasting it?
Happy Easter! Not a very long new fanfic this week, I put up my epic Amar Akbar Anthony Easter post from last year to make up.
This is from last year, but they are still good ideas! So along with the sequels for Rani from earlier today, here are some brand new movie ideas.
I have really done an awful lot of Rani themed fanfic! But hey, why not repost all of it? You can just not read it if you aren’t interested.
I’m excited! Lots of fun options here! Not just epilogues and alternative endings, but straight up separate movie plots following up on the same characters.
My sister, who does math, just forwarded me an email reminding her to celebrate the “international day of women and girls in science”. Which I feel can best be celebrated by an epic fanfic about how hard and ultimately rewarding it can be to be a woman in science.
I put together a list of all the FanFics for my 2017 DCIB Awards, so I thought I should put that to good use and build it up to a proper index.
The final (and most important) awards post: Awards for ME!!!!! I am a guaranteed winner, because I am only competing against myself. But let’s see what I won FOR! Oh, and the most exciting news, thanks to these posts I have a good start on indexing the TGIF and FanFic posts, so look for those indexes to be going up sometime soon.
Happy New Year’s Eve!!!! Obviously, I have to do a theme post. I considered stories that revolved around New Years celebrations, but then I wasn’t sure what that would look like in India, so instead I am going with my sister’s suggestion and doing New Year’s combined with time travel.
Poor Salman! A Christmas baby. He has to share his Sunday fanfic theme post with Christmas theme post. But it’s kind of a good fit, right? Salman has that warm sort of vibe that feels kind of Christmassy.
I’m excited about this! In spitballing back and forth in the comments on last week’s post (which was more about Christmas as a festival of lights and social experience and sexy holiday romance), it was suggested that I should just do the whole story. And I think I can! If I break it into 3 bits.
Happy first Sunday of Advent! Naturally, I had to do a Christmas themed post (to match my Christmas themed TGIF post). I briefly considered doing unmarried mothers in honor of Mary, but then I decided to think small instead and use the random small items of Christmas as jumping off points for story ideas.
