chasepan: new DS movie

This movie is terrible. Please consider boycotting it. Dan Curtis said numerous times he never wanted his show to be laughed at. Consider not going to see this trash.

nvr_sk_to_tll: A pair of fic semi-MSTs...

First, a bit of notice: I try never strictly go after spelling and grammar errors in a story because I know people make mistakes, and some choose to write in a language that's not their first.  Also, sometimes, grammar errors might have some meaningful basis for the author.  What I go after are egregious errors in fact-checking and characterization, cliché-filled writing...and yeah, if you misspell a bunch of names of regular characters from the actual fandom your story is based on...I might try to nail you on that.  Also, yeah, there are moments when I become a grammar-nazi...

My comments in parenthesis and bolded...

nvr_sk_to_tll: So I suppose I should explain this...

Basically, this is a community for fandom wank/snark relating to the Dark Shadows fanchise.  That's right...if there's an overzealous fan of any permutation of Dark Shadows out there, we're here to mock'em.  You can complain, sarcasticize (that's a word now, 'cos I wrote it), throw a little comm-wide intervention...all of it.

Also, we welcome MSTs of fan fics that take themselves to seriously.  (Basically, if you're not sure what MSTing is, it comes from the show "Mystery Science Theater 3000".  Basically, they mocked movies, we mock bad/DS-iz-srs-bizniz style fic).  We don't think it's plagiarism, since you credit the author of the original story and only add your sarcastic/witty/completely DUH comments.  Yes, it can be hurtful, and whether or not a fic is really "bad" is generally a matter of personal interpretation, but we trust you enough to believe that you'll know when a fic deserves a MSTing.

So, anyway, come, sit, tell your friends about the wank, and start snarking!
