12:55 pm - For helvirago  
So, Hel has this project due...

The Project Report (An Internal Monologue in Four Parts)
(To the tune of "The Book Report" from You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown (original Off-Broadway version).)

A project report on the Buffistas, the Buffistas, the Buffi-

The Buffistas are this stupid group
About this stupid Slayer who kills
Vampires and other nasty demons
[She counts the words so far]
49,983 to go.

Fanfic!Hel
The name of the group about which
This project report is about is
The Buffistas which is about some
Natter.

I analyzed by-
I tokenized the-
It was a-
It reminded me of "SG-1"

And the part where Jack O'Neill jumped from the rock
To Apophis the Goa'uld's back.
And then Carter and everyone swung from the trees
In a sudden surprise attack.
And they captured Apophis and all of his mates
And they carried them back to the base through the gate
And Apophis was grilled by an N.I.D. team
But he wriggled away with his eyes all agleam
And Jaffa rushed in and their staff bolts flew-
The Buffistas do sort of that kind of thing too.

Mathematical!Hel
They have a poster there named Pleiades.
[counts to 24]
Hmm...

Analytical!Hel
In examining a group such as the Buffistas, it is important that
the superficial chracteristics of their deceptively simple natter
should not be allowed to blind the lurker to the more substantial
fabric of their deeper motivations. In this report I plan to discuss the
sociological implications of fandom pressures so
great as to drive the otherwise moral Buffistas to
perform acts of copyright violation which they consciously knew were
against the law. I also hope to explore the personality of Mr.
Machina in his conflicting roles as poster and stompy foot.

The Buffistas are established from the start as benevolent natterers,
and it is only with the increase in social pressure that the seams
in their moral fiber...

If I start writing now
When I'm not really rested
It could upset my thinking
Which is not good at all.
I'll get a fresh start tomorrow
And it's not due till Wednesday
So I'll have all of Tuesday
Unless something should happen.
Why does this always happen,
I should be outside playing
Getting fresh air and sunshine,
I work best under pressure,
And there'll be lots of pressure
If I wait till tomorrow
I should start writing now.
But I if I start writing now
When I'm not really rested
It could upset my thinking
Which is not good at all.

Mathematical!Hel
Another of the posters is Nutty...
[counts to 30]
Hah!

Fanfic!Hel
Down came the staff on his head- smash!
And Daniel fell like a sack full of lead- crash!
Apophis laughed and he left him for dead- hah!
But he was wrong...

Mathematical!Hel
35, 36, 37, 38, 39, 40!

Fanfic!Hel
Just then a glider flew in- whing!
It was a sign for the fight to begin- zing!
And then it looked like Apophis would win- ah!
But not for long.
They made a plan.
Like Buffistas.
Who plan a lot
As you can tell
From the natter
Of the Buffistas
Which this report
Is about.

How do they expect us to

Not to mention the extreme pressure exerted on them by their
deeply rooted rivalry with the Bronze, TWoP, and Whedonesque!

Man! How do you do that? It's amazing!

And so good. I want to share it with my family, though possibly with my real name. Do you mind?

Hey, you don't want to write the whole project, do you?

Sigh. No, never mind. Forget I asked.

Actually, I already have a version with your real name, so feel free. I figured I'd post it in Boxed Set.

I've been earwormed since we started doing it yesterday. Once I realized that "Peter Rabbit" and "the Buffistas" have both the same number of sylables *and* the same stress points, it wrote itself.
