A/N: Well, this is just a short little insane letter written from some peeved characters. Before anyone flames me, I just want it to be known that this was meant to be humorous, not offensive....I know there are some of you who do actually write about the Cats in question. And those of you who don't, that's your business, I'm not trying to tell anyone what to write! I'm just writing from the POV of a character. Enjoy! :-)




To whom it may concern:

In the wonderful world of fanfiction, stories are written telling about the life and love of many Jellicles. Demeter, Munkustrap, Mungojerrie, Rumpleteazer, Bombalurina, Tugger, Misto, Jemima, the list goes on and on.

All the younger cats.

Well, that takes care of them, so let's move to the opposite end of the spectrum. Deuteronomy, Gus and Grizabella have a hefty little piece of the fanfic pie. The old, broken down cats. Griddlebone and Growltiger are written about, and they aren't even actual cats! Just something that crazy old coot th

I apologize for the previous statement. It was written by someone with no respect for dear old Gus. I'm giving her back the typewriter now.

As I was saying, the older cats have a good deal of fanfiction written about them. To top that off, even made up Cats are written about! Stories that are practicall novellas are written about Jellicles that don't even exist! And all the time, we get overlooked.

Who are "we", you ask? The middle aged Jellicles. Jellylorum, Asparagus Jr., Bustopher Jones, Skimbleshanks, and myself. Why don't WE ever get any credit? Why is it that whenever we get written into fanfiction, it's only ONE sentence, and it's usually something like "Jenny and Jelly sat knitting on the car" or "Skimble and AJ volunteered to go with Munkustrap on the expedition" or "Bustopher was the only cat not present; he was at one of his clubs." We have lives too, you know! Why, I'll have you know that during my mid-life crises I was involved in a very angsty love triangle and ran off to Rome for a month!

I'm about to run out of paper, and the typewriter is acting up again, so I'll draw this petition to a close. Thank you for your time.

P.S. And if I don't start seeing some things being written about us soon, you will have one angry Gumbie loose in the fanfic world.

P.S.S. This is Jellylorum. Please excuse my friend's behavior. Menopause is terribly stressful on her and she hasn't had her estrogen pill today.

P.S.S.S. Stop pairing my Jenny with Bustopher. That was just a weekend fling and she didn't mean it. She was drunk at the time. ~ Skimbleshanks
