Summary: Eight and a half months after the end of Dogma, and there's no room at the Inn

Review: At the end of Dogma, Bethany Sloane is told that she's pregnant and carrying a new Messiah ('the one who will be Lord and Saviour, Again', to quote this fic). Being a traditionalist - and also somewhat stunned by the whole scenario, as is only reasonable in the circumstances - Bethany is sort-of expecting to give birth in a stable surrounded by donkeys. When the time comes, however, she's driving through a snow-storm, is turned away by a Days Inn, and ends up trapped in a branch of Wal-mart with a bunch of very odd characters. At this more than slightly inconvenient moment, Bethany meets a man:

"Are you okay?" the guy asked.

The answer was, resoundingly, no. She was giving birth in a snowed-in Wal-mart, half-frozen, and still horny, which didn't seem fair, and the returning sensation to her extremities was making her dizzy enough to lose control of her mouth--or at least, that was the only reason she could come up with to explain why she blurted, "You're really cute but I'm in labor, so unless you're a doctor I'm mostly going to be screaming at you and you might just want to pass me off to someone else."

He blinked, and his brow furrowed slightly. It made him slightly cuter, remarkably. "Actually, I'm a cop."


He is, in fact, Ezekiel Stone, a dead cop returned to Earth to track down 113 escaped demons - and that's only the start of the weirdness. Add in the Metatron (the Voice of God), Lucifer and Three Wise Nuns, and what you have here is a surreal take on the Christmas story worthy of the great Kevin Smith himself. It's strange, it's funny, and it's even kind of hopeful with the suggestion that Zeke and Bethany might just get together at the end. Plus, although I've never seen Brimstone, the characters from Dogma sound just right to me and the author has certainly had a huge amount of fun writing this - fun which communicates itself to the reader in handfuls.

Yes, to a certain extent, it does poke fun at organised religion, but unless that's a major turn-off for you I suspect you will find this light-hearted story very entertaining and thought-provoking and generally just downright enjoyable.

Exploratory, by Kelandris (NC-17)

  • Apr. 24th, 2010 at 6:25 AM
Title: Exploratory by Kelandris
Fandom: Askewniverse
Pairing: Jay/Silent Bob
Categories: Romance, sort of
Length: Medium (3418 words)
Warning: Potty mouth; mention of drug use. I should also warn for yellow-text-on-black-background on the author's website, but you can always copy-and-paste to read the story.
Rating: NC-17


Author on LJ: Unknown
Website: Pseudofluff 3.0


Summary: Bob finds himself with a lapful of Jay at a party, and wonders what to do with him.

Review: Written from Silent Bob's POV - and we all know he's just quiet, not inarticulate - this story shows him being overwhelmed when Jay suddenly puts the moves on him at an unspecified party. This is the usual uninhibited Jay, apparently high on something and desperate to get Bob's attention, whilst Bob himself is really only looking for a quiet life. But once it starts, all Bob cares about is that he survives it; he knows his mercurial Jay, and how quickly what seem to be sexual advances can morph into homophobic accusations and mockery.

And then ... it's all just hotness, and beautiful in-character sex, and some delightful moments of tenderness and insight into the nurturing side of Silent Bob's personality. He is, although he has been reluctant to admit it even to himself, head over heels in love with his aggravating roomie, and it looks as if Jay has known it all along. This being the case, their first getting together can never be anything other than extremely satisfying, both for themselves and for the reader.

The View Askewniverse is a murky world at best, and nothing is ever straightforward or simple and you wouldn't really expect it to be. Here, however, we have two people who obviously care for one another - in their own, very strange ways - enjoying one another to the full. It's great, warming, life-affirming stuff and I recommend it wholeheartedly.

Title: Second Verse, Not Exactly The Same As The First by Julad
Fandom: Kevin Smith's View Askewniverse (Clerks)
Pairing: Dante/Randal
Categories: Humour
Length: Medium (5317 words)
Warning: Jay's potty mouth; some boy kissing
Rating: Not rated by the author. I'd give it a PG-13.


Author on LJ: she has an aversion to conviction
Website: ambivalent pleasures


Summary: Just another day at the QuickStop in Red Bank. Or is it?

Review:

"Dante walks through the busted door, finds yesterday's sheet and lays it out on the floor, other side up. He gets a squeeze bottle of raspberry icecream topping. Using it as a writing implement is kind of like peeing his name into a snowdrift. It's messy, but he manages to write FUCK OFF in large hot pink letters. When he hangs it up, it starts dripping downwards like a horror movie."

The action of this story takes place immediately after Clerks, while the manager is still away. Dante - who isn’t supposed to be here today - is woken by a call from Randal who had to break the door off its hinges to get in. From that moment forward, Dante's life just continues to spiral out of control; customers parade in and out asking stupid questions, ants die, the cat wanders by and licks up the raspberry sauce, and eventually Randal reappears from wherever the hell he's been with a picnic, champagne and Star Wars, and creates an oasis of calm for him right there in the store.

That's when it becomes obvious even to Dante that Randal wants him, and despite mayhem all around - intrusions by friendly neighbourhood drug dealers Jay and Silent Bob and the antics of the world's most surreal customer base - Dante just about manages to work out that yes, he wants Randal, too. At least he needs to give it a chance, because Randal may not exactly be Mr Right but he's certainly Mr Right There.

Julad tackles the difficult task of writing Kevin Smith's eccentric characters with great aplomb, and manages to keep them not only in character but also in their proper setting. It is very easy indeed to imagine these events taking place in the aftermath of Clerks, and since they are not negated by the events of Clerks 2 I, for one, choose to believe that this is what really happened the very next time Dante and Randal showed up for work.

Dante - who isn’t supposed to be here today - is woken by a call from Randal who had to break the door off its hinges to get in. From that moment forward, Dante's life just continues to spiral out of control; customers parade in and out asking stupid questions, ants die, the cat wanders by and licks up the raspberry sauce, and eventually Randal reappears from wherever the hell he's been with a picnic, champagne and Star Wars, and creates an oasis of calm for him right there in the store.

That's when it becomes obvious even to Dante that Randal wants him, and despite mayhem all around - intrusions by friendly neighbourhood drug dealers Jay and Silent Bob and the antics of the world's most surreal customer base - Dante just about manages to work out that yes, he wants Randal, too. At least he needs to give it a chance, because Randal may not exactly be Mr Right but he's certainly Mr Right There.

Julad tackles the difficult task of writing Kevin Smith's eccentric characters with great aplomb, and manages to keep them not only in character but also in their proper setting. It is very easy indeed to imagine these events taking place in the aftermath of Clerks, and since they are not negated by the events of Clerks 2 I, for one, choose to believe that this is what really happened the very next time Dante and Randal showed up for work.

Summary: Just another day at the QuickStop in Red Bank. Or is it?

Review:

"Dante walks through the busted door, finds yesterday's sheet and lays it out on the floor, other side up. He gets a squeeze bottle of raspberry icecream topping. Using it as a writing implement is kind of like peeing his name into a snowdrift. It's messy, but he manages to write FUCK OFF in large hot pink letters. When he hangs it up, it starts dripping downwards like a horror movie."

The action of this story takes place immediately after Clerks, while the manager is still away.
