Hello all. I'm Margaret and I was MSTing long before MST3K even existed. My sisters and I used to watch bad SciFi on Saturday afternoons and drive my Mother crazy yelling at the television. So when MST3K came around, it was a natural for us to watch it--and paly along.

Now I continue the tradition by shredding the horrific entries on-line. I've found that I do better off the cuff, rather than reading the fic and then shredding it. 99% of my MSTie comments are my initial reactions to the story, or lack there of.

As with my fellow escapees from the badfic_quotes community, bad grammar, punctuation and spelling are pet peeves. Along with the usual annoyance over the total lack of the poor, ignored comma in the majority of these fics.

Ditto here... well, what we do, is one of us (usually me) goes and skims over the fic to see if it's good material.. in terms of length, particularly great badfic lines, suitably bad grammar, etc. Then we all get together in an AIM chatroom, and one of us (once again, I usually get stuck with this) cuts and pastes lines from the fic, and then we all mock it in realtime. The problem with this, of course, is that sometimes two of us will make the same joke at once, or sometimes we'll say lines that would be funnier in a different order. Hence, we usually have to do some degree of post-production work to switch lines around, remove repetitive or confusing jokes, etc.

That's what Kelly and I do, except in the "post-production" work, (haha, I like that term) we translate the comments and jokes into the various character's voices. We find it more fun to have it as if the characters are reading the bad!fic because it's safe to assume they'd be horrified. xD
