No. Really. It's not.

down with ff.net, up with Evadne

(Anonymous)
i've always loved all your BBEs and when i discovered one morning that ff.net took them down, i immediatley knew what happened and its such a pity that they marked your stories for ff.net death too.

i'm so happy that you're putting them on your Live Journal though! now i can show all my friends once again your great parodies!

i've read some comments and you said that you're going to do The Village BBE, but are you ever going to get around to a Spiderman 2 BBE? as soon as i saw that movie, i could already tell some things that you would make hilarious and i was anxiously awaiting that BBE, but i have realized (now that i read some other comments) that you are very busy with moving to school etc etc. i just hope that you can make a Spiderman 2 one eventually!

keep up the good work and don't let ff.net or anyone else get you down!

Hi, Victoria! I don't think I'll be doing a Spiderman BBE unless I see it again in the near future. The problem is that I saw it, took notes, then didn't have to write anything. When I went back to my notes later, I had no idea what they said. They just didn't make sense. So, unless I can translate them or see the movie, I don't think it'll happen. When the video comes out, sure.

Thanks for reading. Sorry I couldn't oblige better.

no spiderman 2 BBE? i can deal

Hallo! no Spiderman 2 BBE? i can deal, it'll just be a few weeks of crying my eyes out to get over it.....just kidding :)

About "obliging", don't be thick! your other BBE's will do just fine and i can't wait until they are all uploaded so i can read them all again!

I raise my glass to you, cheers!

BBE

(Anonymous)
Ack! Argh! I found your ff.net account trashed this morning and I couldn't believe my eyes. An outrage! A scandal! A...well, I'm distressed, and I hope you can get your Breadboxes up and running soon. Will there be a Crab-Boy - sorry, I mean, HELLboy - BBE on the way? Never mind, I will just be glad to have the old Breadboxes back.
cheers!
Tawa

I'm afraid there won't be a Hellboy unless I get the DVD in the near future, which seems unlikely as I am the poor. But I promise I'll have the old BBEs back up before too long. Thanks for reading!

Aw, crazy FF.net
But yay for joining the cult of LJ.

Hope your move (off and online) isn't too crazy.

I love your icon.

Seriously hilarious writing here. This has got to be the best LotR:FotR parody ever written. I bow at you.

Thank you! I'm glad it's aged relatively well (it has been three years).

Hello, this is Jessica C Potter from FFN. I've been a reader of yours for quite some time now, so do you mind if I add you? Your Breadboxes are gold. XD

Add me wherever you'd like. Glad you like my BBEs.

Of course, I already have the original FotR saved to my hard drive. I got sick of seeing Rohan spelled wrong in TTT (the "a" was missing every single time for some reason), so I saved that to my hard drive and corrected it. Then I thought "Why not?" and saved the rest.

Recently, I watched my FotR DVD. And I quoted almost every single line of this. And even when I just wanted to sit and watch the movie in piece, I just kept thinking of of this!

However, no matter how many times I read it, I just love the line "Oh, so it was someone named Baggins in the land of Shire!" ^_^ Fun.

If you're all very good, I'll tell the story of the "a" in Rohan when I post Two Towers. (It's a story of fanatical love, revenge and other good stuff.) Glad you think of this when watching the movie. I am now incapable of taking FotR seriously.

yay!

hahaahahhahaa! Good luck with your moving and I can't wait for the next BBE! Shire in the land of Baggins...... that never get's old! I ADORED your HP3 BBE and I hope it's up soon!

HP BBEs will be going up after the LotR ones. I'm doing the ones people like first. Thanks for reading. Hopefully, I'll have a new one up before too long.

I positively *adore* your Breadbox Editions! I've always meant to write you an e-mail of praise, but I might as well just comment. Anyway, I love them and I think they're hilarious.

I think that what ff.net says about scripts is lame, because writing scripts is as much an art as writing fiction. All of my fics are scripts as well, so it's only a matter of time until my stuff gets booted off as well. Anyway, I'm glad you're posting them here.

Would it be all right if I friended you?

I don't know why scripts are disallowed. Especially as there was a section called "Screenplays." Hope they don't boot you (they can't get everyone, can they?).

Go ahead and friend me.

Damn, I was going on your ff site for a good laugh because I'm completely depressed, and of course the have to bust ya :( *whines* I want to read all of your breadboxes so my spirit can be saved! :P Anyway, I love you..and your writing skills, I truly do. And that's just a littel creepy, of course. I hope you find some time to post all the wonderful breadbox editions soon, and have fun moving! ^_^ Moo!

Nah, that's not creepy. If you told me you wanted to have my children, now that would be creepy. Especially as I am a woman. Thanks for reading!

Damn, they got you too?

FF.net can bite my pointy little arse. Your BBEs were some of the most inspired parody/satire I've seen in years, and I'm very glad they're still up on the web. Much love.

They seem to be getting everyone. I don't know if there's a rush of reporting or what, but stuff is coming down left and right. Oh well, glad you like my stuff!

Your's is the best parodies I ever read. Love them and love ya!

not that you need my lowly, uninspired witticisms, but i've always thought that right after frodo volunteers at the council to tske the ring, you should have gandalf as saying, "i told you to wait in the car." that just always seemed to me to be the expression on his face. even so, your BBE's are the funniest things i've ever read. keep up the good work, and don't let FF.net get you down!

ps. very possibly my favorite line ever:

The EVIL, RED LIGHT catches up with them. It’s a BALROG.


GANDALF
Aw, hell

I was going to tell you all my favorite lines, but then I realized that I'd halfta quote the WHOLE THING!!!!

Heh. Thanks. I have had only one person quote the entire thing back to me. Out loud. In a car, so I couldn't escape. It was very embarassing.

It's me!!!........again..

I feel embarassed for you just 'thinking' about it!! K I got a quote that made me laugh till I coudln't breath....

EYE OF SAURON
ROAR! I…My god, your eyes are blue!

Seriouly was laughing my brains out!! my mom now thinks I need therepy......


Guess what? I watched Fellowship of the Ring, just so I could readd this again! Go me, cuz I don't OWN FOTR so it involved some stealing and a LOT of bribing.

Uh-oh. Illegal activities to support your LotR habit? The proper authorities will have to be alerted. Luckily, I have no idea who those would be.

Hail the Breadboxes! So glad to see they've found a home at LJ. I was mucho distressed when I heard about the script rule, because I knew they were doomed. FFN blows in many respects, that being one of them.

And yet, much like Microsoft, it's an evil we all tolerate.

I'll be adding you to my friends list, if that's okay, so I can keep tabs on the goodness of BBEs. How much begging and pleading would I have to do to get you to consider doing a BBE of The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen? You've done the other recent movies that I adore (the Harry Potter and LOTR films, and POTC), so that one would just make my year. If you decide to do it, I'll give you candy.

I don't think you really want me to do a BBE of LXG because I'm a big fan of Alan Moore's comic book. It really wouldn't be all that interesting, it would just be me ranting about Mina not being in charge, Tom Sawyer, and the gruding agreement that, yeah, that was Nemo. But, hey, if you want to see me rant in semi-script format, I'll add it to the list. I just need to rent it. Plus, mmmm, candy.

Ah, ff.net, why do you torment me so? Oh well, I'm glad to see you followed me over! Thanks again for reviewing.

Giving credit where it's due

I've got a LOTR fic on ff.net (been working on it for quite a while and I'm almost done, THANK GOD). I was writing more to it a couple days ago, and I mentioned the Argonath looking all, "Stop! In the name of love!"

I knew I'd heard it somewhere before, but I couldn't remember where. And I read this again (I love your BBEs; can't stop reading them), and saw it, and was all, "Ohh...THAT"S where it's from...!"

Just thought I'd give you the credit, since it is yours. I'll also mention that when I get that chapter posted.

My story can be found at: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/1951137/1/. Please read it.

Re: Giving credit where it's due

Thank you for remembering! I'll read your story soon.

I'm actually rather glad they left Tom Bombadil out- I'm not sure a half hour of poetry would have really been much fun. Although it does leave a few plot gaps later, I suppose.

Mmm, I agree. I was rather glad they left him out. And I thought they filled any holes very well. They really only got weapons from Tom anyway.

You know what's funny (or sad, depends) is that I recognized which parts you changed, i.e. "No, I hate rococo!" instead of "No, I hate baroque!" which I thought was hilarious. :p

Good memory! As for that change, I decided I needed to be a little more specific about what was hated. Have to get these things just right.

One of the best movies for me.
