It’s a tale as old as time: girl meets troll bear, household objects start to sing, and Stockholm Syndrome ensues. Keli and Alice are avid Disney fans with mixed feelings about Beauty and the Beast. On the one hand, who doesn’t love a bookish heroine who wants adventures in the great wide somewhere? On the other, does she have to be such a brat? Spoiler: They all live happily ever after. Except for Gaston. And maybe Chip.
In an effort to release more content with greater regularity, Keli and Alice have decided to publish some shorter, bonus content. In the first SnarkNotes Short they explain the art of shipping and discuss the popular Remus / Lupin (or WolfStar) ship.
Keli and Alice were sensitive children who eventually grew and matured into neurotic adults. In this episode they each recount four books or movies that messed with their young, fragile minds – sometimes scarring them for life. In this episode they’ll explain how almost anything – from green ribbons, to songs about cavemen, to Muppets – can be scary. Mild spoilers related to stories you probably don’t care about.
O Romeo, Romeo! Wherefore art thou the absolute worst? Let us count the ways. In this SnarkNotes episode, Keli and Alice take the time to discuss heroes (and couples) that the general public romanticizes even though they really shouldn’t. They argue that the romantic heroes of classic literature are seriously lacking. Romeo is a player. Healthcliff is a sociopath. Gatsby isn't exactly "great". All in all, a stand up group of guys. Spoiler warning. This episode touches on major plot points in Romeo & Juliet, Wuthering Heights, and the Great Gatsby. (You’ll never guess how Romeo & Juliet ends. Minds will be blown.)
Dystopian literature was all fun and games until Trump got elected. Now, terrifying hypotheticals feel a little too real. In this episode of Snarknotes, Keli and Alice discuss what they like about dystopian literature before counting down the plots that seem most likely to happen given our current political climate. Warning: this episode is dark and full of spoilers.
You may not be able to go home again, but you can go back to Hogwarts. Whether or not you should is a different matter entirely. Keli and Alice discuss their long established love for Harry Potter before laying out some grievances with the Cursed Child. Please expect copious amounts of love for Scorpious Malfoy – the lovable cinnamon roll the Harry Potter fandom needs, but does not deserve. Spoilers, spoilers everywhere.
It is a truth rarely acknowledged, that the best Darcy is a socially awkward Darcy. In SnarkNotes’ pilot episode Keli and Alice discuss the many ways that Pride & Prejudice’s Mr. Darcy is incredibly, painfully, awkward. Here at SnarkNotes each cringe-worthy moment makes us (love, love) love him all the more ardently. Judge for yourself just how socially inept Darcy can be and whether you like him better that way! As always, please expect spoilers.
