    Summary

    “You’re him,” I said before I could stop myself, because there was no mistaking that hair, those hands. He met my gaze and the hair on my arms stood up. This was the man who was supposed to save the world. I had so many questions.

    This is really great! I love the narrative voice, the man who has lost hope meeting the savior he's been looking for; the one he hopes will change things, and who does, but in ways not quite explained or understood. There's a delicious ambiguity about everything, whether Ziggy Stardust is actually an alien or not, whether the looming implied disaster is global or personal. I want more of this worldbuilding, more background - but also I appreciate it for what it is, a moment in (and out of) time. (And I am now sadly earwormed - it's been too long since I listened to this album!)

    Summary

    If I close my eyes and utilise the powers of imagination claimed to be the special purview of the artist and the fantasist alike, I can remember even now, the heavy trudge up the stairs, that Easter holiday, with the sure and certain knowledge of finding Sebastian drunk.

    Aw, this is adorable, and I agree, it felt like a children's book - all it needed was illustrations of Jolly the Cub and her Quest to find the Truth of the Fat Bear Contest! I especially grinned at your use of 'everybear'.

    Summary

    In a minute, Shprintze thinks, the fiddler will say what every other neighbor has said: oy, what a trip! Are you sure you’ll be safe? Oh, well, but you’ll see your sister, and that meshuggeneh radical of hers, and maybe if you’ve the time you could bring a letter to my cousin, who lives in the Pod'iacheskii neighborhood –

    In fact what the fiddler says is: “Since you’re going, I’m thinking I might come with you.”

    This is an amazing story, possibly my favorite of this year's collection so far. To me this is the sort of thing that I would point to and say, "This! This is why we call them transformative works" - and in some sense it's multiply transformative, as it's fanfiction that builds on a transformative production itself (which I haven't seen) of a source show (which I've seen multiple times), and it adds so much, I think, in multiple dimensions.

    I love the grounding in the Russian Revolution, with real people and real history. And I love that it's the story of one of the younger daughters, who in the original original barely gets much notice; now she's all grown up, or trying to be, and (like her family, like Anatevka) has one foot in the future and one in the past. And yet past is future: When she left Russia, she was a kid, and it was the old world....Now Petrograd is the new world again, and she, Shprintze, is going to see it.

    I especially like that Shprintze is the connection and the mediation among all these worlds - from one sister to the next, Tsaytl to Khave to Hodl, from America to Poland to Russia, from English to Yiddish to Russian. And the Fiddler and her music provides the rails on which she rides, so to speak, the theme of tradition that keeps her connected to it all, both past and future.

    The narrative voice is fantastic and sounds like my grandmother, every next-doorke popping in with an opinion. I truly loved this wonderful story!
