FK Fanfic: "Grievances"  

My meta-parody "Grievances" is one of those few pieces that have never yet made it to fkfic-l.  I archived it on Bright Knight in 2001, but as far as I knew, no one read it until tv_elf recommended it on her LJ two years ago, when several people kindly commented on it.

It was my first attempt at comedy (well, since my contributions to the My Parental Units Invaded Earth and All I Got Was This Lousy T-Shirt FK/DS/XF humor zine, anyway).

  •  Title: "Grievances"
  •   Length: ~2,900 words
  •   Date: Summer 2001
  •   Rating: G
  •   Summary: Canonical characters organize to protest the working conditions in fanfiction.
  •   Setting: Where characters await stories
  •   Characters:   Vachon, Fleur, Janette, Lacroix, Schanke, Cohen, Stonetree, Nick, Natalie, Others
  •   Quotation: "Bad day on the fic list?  Let me guess -- you spent an entire shift making love to Tracy Vetter for no emotionally established reason in no logically explained manner, and you need an aspirin and a shower?"

Yes, I'm grateful to her. And thank you very much! That means a lot.

I never read this before. It's not only hilarious; it's got a good point to make. If there's less fan fiction written, then there's also less good fan fiction being written.

Resolution: I really must write another Season Five episode. Some time. It's been...years.

Thank you so much for reading "Grievances"! It's an odd little thing.

>"Resolution: I really must write another Season Five episode. Some time."

It would be great to have a new story by you. (And at this point, if formatting and downloading is still an issue, it will be easy to have someone convert a DOC file into PDF, to take less file space, preserve the formatting, and assuage the worries of the most careful downloader.)
