This is so hilarious!
That was funny! I actually like Disney, though. To me, it's very sweet, and I love Beauty and the Beast.
That said, I do have nightmares of what they'd do if they did LOTR, Les Miserables, or Phantom of the Opera. LotR would basically be like what you just wrote. In Phantom, they'd turn Erik's deep character into one of those cliche villains, or worse, pull a Phangirl and make RAOUL the evil one and Erik Mr. Nice Fluffy Not-insane Not-Creepy Not-Dangerous-at-all. Ugh. And Les Mis...they'd make Javert evil, and give Valjean and Cosette a singing kitty, and they'd probably put Eponine and Enjorlas together, and make the Les Amis win. GAH!
Hmmm....maybe I should write a fic like this for Phantom of the Opera.
Author's Response: I\'d definitely read it. You\'re probably right about what they\'d do to it and Les Mis: poor Javert would be evil, Marius would be a brave, strong warrior and not the rather wimpy little bourgeois boy he was in the book, Valjean couldn\'t be a convict, because that\'s a bad influence on little kids...ugh.\r\n\r\nI like most of the old Disney movies that I remember from childhood: \"Beauty and the Beast,\" \"The Lion King,\" \"Aladdin,\" \"101 Dalmatians,\" \"The Little Mermaid.\" However, I agree that Disney needs to stay away from the classic novels (\"Hunchback of Notre Dame,\" anyone?) and the mythology (look at what they did to Greek mythology in \"Hercules\"!).
Here's a dream a friend of mine had.
Before I start this, let me say yes, I watched all three LotR movies a couple of weeks ago, with my sister (her first time seeing them) and no, I don't think Elijah Wood is handsome (o:
Alright, so... there was some sort of open house thing at this church we used to go to. So we went, and there was a guy playing a double-necked guitar, but it didn't just have two necks, it had two heads. So I was asking him how to play it, and he said he was ambudextrous (sp?) so he could switch the guitar whichever way he liked. He then told me to go find a place to sit, and he'd be by to show me how to play it.
So, I go and sit on the couch, but we're no longer in the church, but at my house, by the window, on the couch. There are still people everywhere, but it seems really normal, and since we're thinking about moving, I think we might have been having an open house. Anyway, I'm sitting there, with my mom, and across from us, on the other couch, is Elijah Wood, Viggo Mortenson and Ian McKellen.... but no one's even noticing them! So I lean over, and start talking to Elijah Wood (who, for some reason was still dressed in character, as were the other two).
"You know," I said. "My sister just finished watching Lord of the Rings for the first time last week."
"Did she like it?"
"Yes." I nod.
He smiles. "Was she impressed with my awesomely good looks?"
That threw me off guard. "Well..." I stammered. "I think her favorite character was Aragorn." And I gesture to Viggo.
He has entirely too much makeup on and looks at me like he's lost, or had just been daydreaming. "Oh." he says in a very small voice.
And then Gandalf takes off his hat, and he's bald.
But then I woke up.
You know, I really wouldn't have minded reading that "original version". It would have been fun!
Author's Response: It would have been hilarious!
Hilarious. I love Suebash fics like this.
Author's Response: Yeah; I liked your Suebash fics so much (including the Narnia one), that I decided to try one for myself/
LOL, a Mary Sue cat. Now that's something new. She's cute, though.
Author's Response: Thanks. I haven\'t seen her for a while, but I\'d imagine she\'s still ruling over the vets at that clinic.
