adapt canon. twist canon. pick up the story and drop it in another place, another time. rethink gender, sexuality, race. cut open a little hole in another universe and push the story inside. retcon the ending, switch up the genre, make it tragic, make it happily-ever-after. knock the characters out of moral alignment. debunk stereotypes, subvert tropes. kidnap and liberate the story from oppressors.
I enjoy the simpler things in life, like sitting down with a good long gay fanfic.
My nephew really loves Frozen and really loves superheroes and this weekend he went to Build-a-Bear and built a Batman bear that sings “Let It Go” when you squeeze it’s hand.
It’s actually the cutest.
