Supplemental Post #7: There's a Lemonade fanfiction

https://wholetimethough.wordpress.com/2016/04/25/the-lemons/

Fanfiction is a wonderful thing. It is a way for fan communities to explore storytelling avenues only hinted at by their favorite media products and celebrate their love of said product. Occasionally these pet projects gain viral status and are picked up by the mainstream media according to their relevance or absurdity, but usually a combination of the two, as in the case of The Lemons. This fanfiction, related to Beyonce's latest album Lemonade, relishes in the sense of righteous vengeance suggested by the album's lyrics and crafts a revenge narrative related to the behind-the-scenes drama in which Beyonce invites a bunch of powerful women to dinner in order to humiliate Jay-Z. It's a fantastic read.

  1. Fair but Beyonce the Vampire Slayer is a very underappreciated fan work. Check it: http://archiveofourown.org/works/63333. Read it. Bleed it. Love it. Share it. Tell me how you feel.
