Storytime With Meadow: Mr. Horrible

Hello readers! I know that lately I've been on a bit of a supernatural kick, so I thought I'd throw in something different. Some of you have probably heard of the hilarious story Mr. Horrible by Algonquinrt. If you haven't, you've been missing out. In this all-human, complete story Bella (Baby Swan) is a foul-mouthed bohemian temp who meets a straight-laced executive-type Edward (Rich Kid.) The cast of characters is diverse and unique to the Twi-fandom and the cursing is creative to the point of needing a wiki. Seriously, I found myself spewing some of it while driving and had to laugh out loud at myself.

Bella is sweet, tough, and acerbic. Edward is awkward, smart, and sincere. When their worlds collide there are sparks, both positive and negative. Can they find a way to work through their differences? I'm sure you won't have too much trouble figuring it out since Algonquinrt is planning a sequel, but I guarantee you'll enjoy the ride. I adore this crazy world Algie has created for us. I want to be friends with Rich Kid and Baby Swan, I want to get to know Granny Platt, and most of all I want a set of silver with sporks. Laurent FTW! So, trust me, go check it out. You won't regret it.

Okay, Meadow, you know I LOVE you... and adore you... and possibly want to have your babies...(but that's for another post.)

But can I just ask one teenie... tiny... little thing?

I would love to see reviews for less popular fics. Lately most of the fics you've reviewed have been VERY well known and already well read fics with high review counts. And they DO deserve to be recognized and praised. But in many ways they already are.

Maybe if we could find some of the little guys who are as yet undiscovered that would mean a lot to me.

But VERY good review of Mr. Horrible and it's a fic I love. So thanks for that.
