Anyone out there?

Share
Is anyone alive out there? Can anyone here me?  (cue Celine Dion music)  I just watched the movie again last night (for about the millionth time), which then led to me digging out the book to read again (for about the billionth time) and I realized I had no idea whether or not there was even a large fandom for this story.  I haven't really found much besides a few well done one parters, so I figured I'd see if anyone has any suggestions that maybe I haven't run across.  Or if anyone is still around and is interested in some new fic?  I have a bunch of stories in the works in various fandoms, but if there's still a following out there, I'd love to try my hand at writing a fic for one of my all time favorite stories.  Maybe some new blood would liven things up around here and inspire other writers to come out of the woodwork.  FGT is such a lovely story and it's a shame there's such a small following, but I am so glad to know there are some people out there who appreciate this book and film as much as I do!

Anyone interested?  Or know where I can find some more fics?  Maybe even multi-chapter stories?  

Thanks a lot!

My baby picture somehow ended up next to my Fried Green Tomatoes DVD and well, I'm almost reluctant to share this embarrassing baby picture with the world. I have to say I feel like I make a pretty good picture of what an Idgie + Ruth baby. Idk maybe I'm way off base but I just see it in this picture. It makes me a little happy too, to picture a magical fictional lesbian couple made baby (plus Ruth never dies and they live happily ever after in this magical place).

Do you agree with the magical baby likeness?

I wrote this 7 years ago as an FGT-obsessed high schooler. I'm now an FGT-obsessed grad student. Some things never change!

Hey FGT fans,

I saw this clip on youtube a while ago and meant to share it. Doesn't it make you want to move to Germany? Why aren't there more amateur theatrical productions of FGT here??

Discussion Question

Share
 Hey everyone!

I've noticed this place is kind of dead, which is really sad. Being a fan of both the book and the movie, I'd love to have a place where I can go and talk about them with other people. So, with my fingers crossed, I wanted to throw this question out there and see what, if any, thoughts there are on it.

With the book, was anyone else upset by the fact Onzell sort of killed Ruth without telling Idgie or Stump about it? She sent Idgie and Stump away and then gave Ruth that overdose. Just imagine, Idgie and their son are out in the woods searching for things for Ruth and Onzell's back home facilitating Ruth's death and then going with her to the hospital. Idgie and Stump didn't even get to be there when Ruth died. I know Onzell was really protective of Ruth and close to her, but that's not exactly something you take away from a family - the chance to be there with their loved one in her final moments.

Title: The Talk
Author: Fab_fan
Fandom: Fried Green Tomatoes (Bookverse)
Pairing: Ruth/Idgie

Spoilers: This is bookverse not movieverse. Thus it refers to a scene and characters in the book that are not in the movie. So, it’s a spoiler for the book.
Rating: PG
Summary: You take Idgie and Ruth. Now, you never saw two people more devoted to each other than they were, but even the two of them went through a period when they had their little problems. Ruth moved in with us once.

Note: Hey! This is my first time posting here and my first time writing for this fandom. I’m still trying to get a feel for the characters and setting. Please let me know how I did and if I should continue with this foray into the Fried Green Tomatoes universe (both book and movie). Any tips or comments are greatly appreciated.
