I know why John Tucker Must Die
is so slashy. I wrote the frelling book on why teen movies are so often slashy. for heaven's sake.
Yet one of the major differences between the intellectual life of the critic and the jouissance of the person who just watches films and squees is just this. Knowing something does not make it easier when you feel it grab you and tickle.
So, please, if there is any John Tucker Must Die
femslash out there, pretty please point me at it. Because I need it.
An enjoyably silly film, btw, with the make-over plot from Jawbreaker
done so much better, and the big moral from Mean Girls
not quite so crudely plugged at us.
Also this evening, started the rewatch of GA from the beginning. Meredith and Cristina really did begin the way we mean them to go on. Just sayin'.
