    Summary

    Hester Prynne, uncertainly widowed in the New World, finds herself desperately lonely in a town of couples and families. The new minister Arthur Dimmesdale is brilliant but shy - could he be a kindred spirit? Could he perhaps be too kindred of a spirit for his own good? Is the title of this fic a pun? And can I write this story with shorter sentences than Nathaniel Hawthorne? The answer to all of these questions, dear reader, is yes.

    Summary

    For once, something which has nothing to do with The Grand Budapest Hotel!

    I wrote this parody work as an assignment for my eleventh grade English class sometime in 2009, and have just come across it (I printed it, and so I painstakingly re-typed it and am now immortalizing this drivel here).

    It concerns a crack crossover between The Catcher in the Rye, The Crucible, The Scarlet Letter, The Grapes of Wrath and Death of a Salesman. I forget what our assignment actually was, all I know is this is what came about from it and I got an A+ and placed in AP English solely because of this shit.

    Anyway, in this story, you will find Holden Caulfield, Abigail Williams, Arthur Dimmesdale, Tom Joad, Willy and Biff Loman united together by the strange throes of destiny, as they embark upon a fateful cruise down the Mississippi River, which has some uncanny and unexpected happenings after Abigail Williams strikes a bargain with Satan in hopes of regaining the affections of her beloved John Proctor.

    If you somehow make it through this horribly written diatribe, I'd appreciate feedback!

    Summary

    Hester was the most beautiful of all of Lucifer's demons. She looked nothing like her brothers and sisters, closer to the humans that walked the surface than the demons, spawn of the great wyrms that could be found deep in the burning hot core. Her wings were smaller than the others, and different.

    Summary

    A short scene based on the 1995 film The Scarlet Letter, which was itself "loosely adapted" from the classic novel. Methinks Nathaniel Hawthorne would *not* approve.
