Anyone else here a fan of Cassandra Claire's LOTR: The Very Secret Diaries?
If you have not seen this, then read no further till you investigate this hilarious link:
I mean it. Go read this first then come back. *waiting for you patiently here*
Now then. There have been a number of similar takes on the VSD style, I guess first perpetrated by "Bridget Jones' Diary," and recently a bunch of writers got together on Mary Anne Mohanraj's website and started an Arthurian milieu version of the Very Secret Diaries.
It is called... *drumroll*
Camelot, The Very Secret Diaries!
And I am one of the eville perpetrators. My characters (at least so far) are Elaine, the Lady of Shalott (whom I fused with Sir Galahad's mom, also Elaine) and the Holy Grail itself. (Yes, there are a number of inanimate objects characters, rather hilarious actually, like Excalibur and its sex-starved Scabbard). Some other writers also "playing" in this VSD milieu are Tim Pratt, Heather Shaw, Mike Jasper, Karen Meisner, Jon Hansen, Erin Donahoe, and others.
And the good news is, not all the main characters are taken yet! So, if you think you'd like to take on the writing of some Arthurian character's Very Secret Diary, sign up ASAP!
Otherwise, just for a good laugh, go take a look now.
