Reviews for Parody: A Working Definition
Vivace.Assai chapter 1 . 2/24/2012
I should have read this first before I read "Guide to Thinks a Fantasy Author Should Never Do." Because now, I'm icing the wounds created from my ignorance (as you've probably noticed if you've read my other reviews prior). Not that I gave you an angry review (if you haven't read the reviews yet). Just because I was simply too gullible.

Anyways, it was a good lesson and this is an interesting essay on parody. Your humor in these essays are great though - I can just imagine someone reading this essay to me with personality. It's much more fun than the other bland essays.

reading something tagged 'parody' when they're not(or at least, with little humor at it) are something like:

'hey, isn't that a waste of time?'

or should say, 'can't you put another another label instead?'

'tounge in my cheek' - did you mean 'tongue'? P

'does't really know' - doesn't?

'I see you point' - your?

Anywho, good piece of advice! I loved that last line ('if not by the author, then by you'.)

This is kind of nice. I'm not sure exactly how I came onto this, but it's refreshing to see someone acknowledge that even bad parodies are made funny by their reviews. (Most of the time anyway.) On the other hand, I once wrote a serious "parody" of something that was originally funny, so I suppose rarely it can work both ways... Either that, or I'm just a total mood-killer. HUZZAH!

Anyway, good points. It's nice to have a reminder to just sit back and laugh.
