Okay, I’ve decided that the folks over at SaveFarscape.com are officially weirdos. They’re now holding a fan fiction (‘fanfic’) contest. That, my friends, is when the effort to save the show officially jumped the shark in my book.
Hey, I want new episodes too, but saying that you write fan fiction is like telling everybody how much you enjoy taking baths in applesauce. Hey, that’s great, but now everybody’s going to know you’re a nutjob – and your only friends will be other applesauce bathers.
I would rather gouge myself in the eye with a hot poker than read fan fiction. There are plenty of examples of horrible fan fiction out there…so many in fact that I really think the association would hinder, rather than help, any sort of campaign to get any show back on the air.
