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!
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.
