Reviews for RGB Primer
Audrey Lynne chapter 1 . 10/22/2011
Too funny. This is hysterical, and so dead-on.
pronker chapter 1 . 4/12/2007
This is hilarious and though I'm a Star Wars shipper of Anakin/Obi-Wan and Obi-Wan/Qui-Gon, I recognize some of these categories as sliding over into the GFFA. Very funny and analytical, too.
Gildir chapter 1 . 8/7/2006
Having only recently discovered the world of online Ghostbusters fandom, I have already skimmed enough angst-ridden fan fiction stories (yes, Shiela Paulson, I'm talking about you) to know that this hilarious essay is right on the money. The Boy Scout handbook passage, while amusing, goes on too long, and the ending may not be quite strong enough, but otherwise this piece is well-nigh perfect. Especially amusing is the way many of the specific points are actually contradicted in canon - for example, in the second movie Egon frequently smiles and actually laughs once or twice... (And how about Ray cooking the turkey in "Citizen Ghost"?)
Celica60 chapter 1 . 9/11/2005
Ha! Clever, funny, and very accurate. I especially liked the Characterization section. I've always found it odd how so many authors prefer to mention the guys by their professions and hair colors rather than their actual names.
Fire Frog chapter 1 . 4/23/2004
You are bad. I love you.
Enfleurage chapter 1 . 6/5/2002
Thanks very much for the reviews. For the record, this was very much intended to be tongue-in-cheek, thus the writer's name listed as Johanna Swift, a nod in Jonathan's direction though not nearly as scathing as his work.

This is definitely intended only for RGB, not EGB. I'm not of fan of EGB.
long under tree chapter 1 . 5/18/2002
wow. though humorous, pretty true and quite well done. a quite impressive guide! ;)
Kalikimaka chapter 1 . 5/7/2002
I'm sorry if you meant this to be serious, but...oh my god! This is so funny! Hilarious! *laughs until she chokes on her own larynx*
DigimonDragongirl chapter 1 . 5/7/2002
*laughs* This is hilarious and informative! I wish I had read this before I wrote my own RGb fanfic! (though I didn't do too bad, if I do say so myself. _) Anyway, thanks for writing this!
dontgiveahoot chapter 1 . 5/2/2002
Oh, this is priceless! I love how you've used simple, "how-to" sentences to show up every single cliche in RGB fanfic that I know of, and a few I hadn't even noticed were actually cliches till you pointed them out! (Man, how sad is that, not to realise that Ray saying "Gosh" is in every fic and its cousin?)
lucidscreamer chapter 1 . 5/1/2002
"The revival itself seems to be accomplished primarily by a combination of copious tears, near-suicidal guilt, and much breast-beating,..."

LMAO Oh, man, this is priceless. ;)

[And for the "reviewer" below: Dude. Obsessed, much? Please don't leave anymore rants about Janine/Kylie in my Peter/Egon stuff. Trust me when I say no amount of lobbying on your part will convince me to write *anything* having to do with EGB. Ever.]

I've read Egon & Ray slash stuff so your Egon/peter thingy is not right. I've also read one or two fanfics that put Egon & Kylie in bed together. Although I think in the animated series both janine & Kylie had a thing for Egon he didn't know, didn't care & didn't want either of them. I like some of the slashy stuff about the Ghostbusters but wish they'd do something putting Kylie Griffin & Janine Melnitz together. I wonder why somebody didn't put Kylie & Janine together in a slash as it's been done with Batgirl/Catwoman & other cartoon vixens. So do SLASH PUTTING THE GHOSTBUSTER GAL's IN BED TOGETHER
