18 Works in Moby Dick - Herman Melville

Listing Works

    Summary

    The first few episodes of Hunter X Hunter re-imagined in a terrible and irreverent (but not too irreverent) parody.

    Some major events and characters have been changed--for the worse.

    Herman Melville would weep at this atrocity (he probably wouldn't care at all).

    Likely to have more dumb crossovers as this progresses.

    Summary

    "Here, boy; Ahab's cabin shall be Pip's home henceforth, while Ahab lives."

    Character-driven, featuring non-sexual bed-sharing, storytelling and a sort of mutual hurt/comfort vibe. Influences include the eponymous myth, King Lear and ... um ... that old joke about the Sunday School teacher and the squirrel.

    Summary

    AU: It's Adam Starblind's senior year, and he's returning to Westish, hoping to repeat the baseball team's previously successful season. Canon divergent because a few character do not meet the same fate as they do in the book. Spoilers for the entire novel.

    A The Art of Fielding/Moby Dick crossover fic (sort of, although it's more focused on The Art of Fielding), in which I redeem Adam Starblind from his misogynistic douchebag self by having him fall head over heels in love with the first mate of the Pequod (now a student at Westish College and member of the crew team).
