I received a lovely comment on this is how the world begins while I was on my work-cation last week, requesting a list of which characters matched up to which fandoms. (I felt a little overwhelmed when I looked at the list, but I've given it a go!)

Also, my apologies to anyone who tried to read the story on AO3 when it was first posted; the formatting was all wonky. It should be fixed now!

Honestly, I thought it would be easier than this. )
In 2006, the BBC started running an updated version of Robin Hood, which I didn't watch until 2008. Despite being a classic story with a fairly basic (and awesome!) premise, somehow this new Robin Hood was all convoluted and... well, weird. Between the start and end of season one, Robin transformed into an emo!teen, and I began to suspect that the Sheriff was afflicted by some sort of neurological disorder (or possibly fighting an evil alien entity for possession of his body). Guy really worked the slouchy goth look, but was understandably frustrated by the fact that he was surrounded by crazy people who were all lying to him.

And so, without further ado...

Title: winning a war you can’t fight
Author: marcicat
Rating: PG-13 (fighting, outlawery, kissing)
Wordcount: 10,200

Summary: If I’d been in charge of the 2006 BBC series, it would have turned out a lot more like this. Alternate title — Robin and Guy’s Greatest Hits.

Story Background: (Because I apparently can't be bothered to make this story *actually* make sense; I'll cheat and use authorial exposition to do the work for me!) Starts before the beginning of the series. Assumes that Guy's improbable journey to the Holy Land and back in six weeks (canon! not kidding!) did occur, but was actually to *save* the king from someone *else's* assassination plot. While there, he met Robin, who was wounded in the fight, and ultimately sent back to England.

The Robin Hood Popcorn Game:

(Yes, traditionally, this would be a drinking game. But I don't drink, and I do eat popcorn. Plus, throwing drinks at your computer/dvd player is a Very Bad Idea.)

Cue up your dvds and whip up some popcorn!

Warning! Silliness ahead! )
