The beauty of the MASH (family) Fandom.

We respect each other.

We respect that some folks like the early seasons and some folks like the later seasons and some folks like both.

That some folks love Trapper and some folks love BJ and some folks love both.

That some folks like Burns over Winchester and vice verse.

We have Blake lovers. Potter lovers.
Fans of both Colonels.

Radar lovers. Klinger enthusiasts.
Those who love both Corporals the same…

Sidney lovers. Flagg lovers. Kellye lovers.
Father Mulcahy lovers.

We’re just one big family unit.

No judgment or harsh criticism.
Just unity and love and togetherness.
Agree to disagree. Kindness.

I love you all so much.
Long live our vintage fandom. (Family)

These people are the biggest friendship goals I have ever seen

Unusual Retellings

We’re all pretty aware of the countless fairy tale retellings there are around but what about retellings of other famous stories? Here are six that I’ve found interesting or unusual either in the way they retold the story or the story they chose to retell

Fly on the Wall by E Lockhart – A high school retelling of … The Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka? Really? Yup. A bit dated in its language now but a fun book with a charming mixed-race female lead.

Lost Boy by Christina Henry – A gory and horrific retelling of Peter Pan by JM Barrie where we learn the eerie origins of both Peter and Captain Hook back when they were children. Proceed with caution if you’re not into blood and guts because it gets a bit gruesome towards the end.

Marly’s Ghost by David Levithan – This short novel is a retelling of A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens using Valentine’s Day as the holiday instead of Christmas. A charming reminder that although romance can be a bit corny and silly, it’s still pretty pleasant.

Warm Bodies by Isaac MarionRomeo and Juliet and zombies. And just like the original story, it isn’t particularly romantic, no matter what the cover quotes and movie trailers tried to say. A slow read but an interesting one, especially if you try to pick all the parts that line up with the play.

Princess of the Midnight Ball by Jessica Day George – Okay, so this one might be a standard fairy tale retelling, inspired by The Twelve Dancing Princesses, but there’s a returned soldier who knits and all the girls take such good care of each other. The first in a trilogy of retellings, this is a sweet story, if a bit predictable at times.

The Gospel of Loki by Joanne M Harris – A retelling of the Norse myths from Loki’s perspective and it’s as ridiculous and skewed and biased as you’d expect. If you love a good unreliable narrator, this is one of the best I’ve ever come across.
