(or, have your mods gone entirely round the bend? The answer, very probably)

As [livejournal.com profile] scarletlobster recently reminded me, seven years ago [livejournal.com profile] thewhiteowl and I were amusing ourselves by writing versions of the Marlows books in LOLCAT dialogue. (We never actually sourced any pictures of cats because it would have been too much work, and anyway, can you imagine the wars about whether Miss Ferguson should be a Scottish Fold or a foxy-looking ginger?)

As the fandom has been going through a renaissance due to [livejournal.com profile] lilliburlero and associates' great work on the readthroughs, I thought I'd link to the posts again so that people who missed them the first time round can share in the silliness.

Autumn Term, The Marlows And The Traitor, The Ready-Made Family, The Attic Term

Run Away Home

The Thuggery Affair

Falconer's Lure, End Of Term, The Cricket Term, Peter's Room

(I have read all of trennels, so I clearly have seen these before, but evidently NOT RECENTLY ENOUGH. And I only read RAH for the readthrough, in e-book form, so I'm about to read that one with great delight...)

I stumbled across these by chance and absolutely love them.

I'm a bit of a lurker on Trennels (especially because my books are all tucked up in storage right now) and had never seen these before - they're brilliant, thank you! *g*

Love these. The Thuggery one is sort of touching and melancholy as well as hilarious...

I am howling with laughter. Mind you, "Jukie: My family situation is a sordid one, and my religious beliefs, whilst individual, afford me little comfort." has never stopped making me laugh.

I think that's my favourite line of the lot.

It's such a gem of condensed wistfulness that I think I should embroider it on a sampler.

I believe it was [livejournal.com profile] ankaret's inspiration to make the Thuggery speak like Victorian vicars.

Jukie: Good heavens! It is the herbert!
