[personal profile] muccamukk asks: Moments in canon that still emotionally resonate with you, many years later.

A nice one to end the meme with!

- Fraser in "Asylum" saying, "You didn't shoot that man," and when Ray tries to talk him out of his certainty he says, "I know you."

- I'm not even especially fannish about these characters, but the moment in "The Breakfast Club" when Andrew the jock is talking to Allison the basket case about parents, and he says, "What do they do to you?" and she says, "They ignore me."

- I was sold on Harry Potter when the snake at the zoo said, "Brazil, here I come." It wasn't just the worldbuilding but the wit.

- Zelenka's description of Atlantis coming up from under the water -- he was speaking poetry, and if you didn't look up a translation, you'd never know.

- Any Sherlock Holmes adaptation is going to live or die in my esteem by how it treats John Watson. BBC Sherlock sold me in the exchange where Sherlock asks what John would be thinking if he were dying. "Please let me live," John says. Sherlock scoffs, "Use your imagination," and John says, "I don't have to."

[personal profile] james asks: Is there a tv show or movie that you would pay a billion dollars to get either a re-working of an episode or a sequel to? (It might not cost that much. Millions.) Because sometimes fanfic isn't enough, you just need to see it on-screen.

Wow. Where even to begin?

All respect to Maggie Smith and Alan Rickman, but I'd like to see the Harry Potter series done with the teachers cast at the correct ages. I believe we have canon that Snape, Lupin, and Black should all have been in their early thirties at the start of the series. The HP wikia gives McGonagall a birth date of 1935 and puts her leaving Hogwarts in 1957, making Maggie Smith about the right age, but I don't know where those numbers come from; she's described with dark hair, and I pictured her in her early fifties.

But if I only have enough for one thing, I'm not sure I'd squander it on that.

No, you know what I'd spend it on? A reboot of "The Breakfast Club," that's what! Update the stereotypes (in the 21st century you'd have to have at least one character gay, for one thing, and an all-white cast would not fly) ... the parenting issues and the school problems probably wouldn't need any changes ... if I have my preferences, the nerd character won't be stuck doing everybody's homework while everyone else pairs off ...

I would so watch that!

[personal profile] brownbetty posted some feral WIPs -- things you find on your hard drive that you barely remember writing.

So I found a bit of Breakfast Club that was probably going to go somewhere but never got there, and I popped it up onto AO3: Sets Consistently High Standards. Brian/Bender, not explicit (sorry), 228 words.

This is just the sort of thing I can't resist, and just the sort of thing that adds to my list of Stories That Will Probably Never Be Finished, but ... (taken from [personal profile] torch):

Pick a trope from this list and provide a fandom/pairing and I'll tell you something about the story I'd write for that combination (i.e. write a snippet from the story or write not!fic or tell you the title and summary for the story I would write)

1. genderswap
2. bodyswap
3. drunk!fic
4. huddling for warmth
5. pretending to be married
6. secretly a virgin
7. amnesia
8. cross-dressing
9. forced to share a bed
10. truth or dare
11. historical AU
12. accidental-baby-acquisition
13. apocalypse fic
14. telepathy
15. High School / College AU

I'll take any of the fandoms I've written in plus ... let's see, in the past year I've seen all three Men In Black movies, plus seasons 1-4 of Buffy and the first few eps of Angel (yeah, so late to the party that the house isn't even there any more).

I've posted a new Breakfast Club smutlet to my website. This is in the Higher Education universe, but you should be able to follow it just fine even if you haven't read the original.

Ask me what happens after the end of any of my stories. (Or tell me what you think.)

Because we all need a hyooge story in a semi-non-existent fandom to make our day complete.

I rented "The Breakfast Club" and watched it -- first movie I've rented in ages, and it was good to see that Molly Ringwald really was as pretty as I remembered, and that, yes, there actually was a time when Emilio Estevez was good-looking and Judd Nelson, while not good-looking, was hot.

Now I want speculation and Benderslash. (Yes, I've enjoyed [livejournal.com profile] kaneko's The Supper Club and [livejournal.com profile] shrift's A Lobotomy and Some Tights.)

1. What's y'all's guess as to how old these kids are? The actors are all older than they ought to be, which confuses matters, but clearly they're not seniors. I'm wondering if they might even be sophomores -- I mean, what on earth would prevent Bender from dropping out the very microsecond the law allows?

2. How does Brian come to be on a first-name basis with Carl the janitor?
