Pretentious Internet Theatre Episode 14

Newest episode up

This was the first episode where the author was not only in on the joke, but tailored his fanfic to be presented in my program's format. When originally approached about the idea, I was a bit concerned. The format of my show was originally intended to lampoon fanfiction, and most of the authors have been good sports about it. Yet "Damian" here seemed to find intent and aspects of my program I don't necessarily see myself. At any rate, Episode 15 will wrap this story up and has already been recorded, edited, and music laid out. I just need to fuse the chapters together and get an intro hook.

BTW, who the hell listens to my show in Singapore?

For Episode 16, I'm planning a holiday special. As we all know Christmas needs saving from everyone in fiction, so I would hope a fanfic can't be too hard to find.
However I play an elitist who's supposed to be more hip than the Dos Equis Guy so I'd *like* to do something where the host says he's too 1337 to just one holiday on his show.
So I thought I'd start looking for fanfics relating to Kwanzaa and Hanukkah.
This is a little more difficult than plugging in "kwanzaa" and "fanfiction" into google.

Take for example How Could You Forget Us --The Christmas story by Squirl

Tasha continued, “It is supposed to remind us of our African roots and the principles for family and community. Each day celebrates a different principle. You would light a candle each day and after seven days it would end with a big celebration. Kids will get presents but those presents were usually books or something symbolic of Africa. It’s been awhile but let me see if I can remember the principles:

It's a joyous festival of copy->paste from there. The speaker would need a drink of water and an oxygen tent after reciting Wikipedia like that.

Yeah it's 7 chapters, otherwise I'd do it. The only other runner up is an acronym enriched Digimon fanfic from Ireland. Granted, it's implied Sephiroth celebrates Kwanzaa in it; which is a plus. However the author posted that he was busy with work and couldn't finish the story, in 2007. So cutting it at a weird point is making me reluctant to read it. Oh that and I may have a Daveykins like incident on my hands with the author, as in content, could be a problem here.

Of course if I find out Scientology celebrates something and someone wrote a fanfic on it, all bets are off.
