Apparently we are getting a lot of spam... I apologize for not catching it.

In the meantime, if you get any spam, please let the mods know instead of deleting so we can report it. You can actually report it to us in this thread for now.

EDIT 1: As a temporary measure (I hope), I have set a recaptcha requirement for all non-members who post comments. I hate to do this because I realize recaptcha can be problematic for some people (myself included, honestly), but hopefully it'll be very temporary I tested this one and it didn't work, so instead, all non-member comments will be screened for now, as a temporary measure. Please let me know if this causes anyone major problems.

Claudia and the Terrible Truth (1-5) [May. 21st, 2016|07:25 pm]

Oh my god guys I am actually back. It's me, Star Ultranova/syphabelnades (formerly xenaeilonwy) and I got locked out of my LJ account for a whole fuckin' year because of a password conflict. But I managed to get back in and not a moment too soon, because I missed BSC Snark and I missed taking the piss out of terrible books from our childhoods!

On that note, I'm back with a particularly nasty, touchy book from the series. This was one of the ill-conceived "Very Special Episodes" that dealt with a very important real life issue in Ann M. Martin's characteristic horrible, misguided ways. That being said, some material in this snark may offend you. Because I'm vitriolic. And I don't just punch holes in these books, I set them on fire. And this is a real life issue. So be aware of that.

This is the book that deals with child abuse. Even though child abuse in its various forms runs rampant in Stoneybrook in SEVERAL different books and no one does a damn thing because the abuse isn't in the form of physical violence.

Let us begin, shall we?Collapse )

Hello my peeps, hope everyone’s doing well today. The weather FINALLY started getting warmer and I actually hit a burst of energy; with no nausea and only a little fatigue. So I thought it best to actually snark something!

Thank you all once again for all your comments, it really means the world to me!

Now, let’s begin with the Saga of Stacey and the BSC!

Covers:Collapse )

Hey all! No, I didn’t forget about you. Or Dawn. As much as I’d like to, I could never forget about Dawn.

I’ve just been working way too much and haven’t had any time for Ms. Independent. Thankfully we’ve just hired a new person for my team, so I’ll be able to transition a lot of work to him. YEAH!!!! Soon there will be no more 60 hour weeks!

I promised I would get through this book, and I am a woman of my word. Without further ado…the saga of Dawn, Lewis, and Norman.

Read more...Collapse )

Thanks for reading and sticking with me! Y'all are the best!

SS#3: Babysitters' Winter Vacation, part 3 [May. 11th, 2016|06:30 pm]
Baby-sitters Club Snark-fest!

Pic-heavy post is pic-heavy.

Also we won't see much of Stacey for a while.

Onward and dumbward!Collapse )

So Stacey is going to be experiencing the disappointment of how fast horny teen boys really are, Mal is realistic for her age and just havinf harmless fun, and Dawn is meeting karma.  Up on deck: Mary Wangst, Pisty, and Kahluadia.

SS#3: Babysitters' Winter Vacation [May. 7th, 2016|04:39 pm]

I'm jumping right into another snark because Jessi said, very clearly, in #61, Jessi and the Awful Secret, that she's had no problems with racism, yet in this one, it's all she sees everywhere she looks.  I'm going to be harsh in this book, so I'd like to explain now that my harshness and lashing out at her is really me lashing out at how Ann (who write this one!) dropped the ball on racism by having Jessi be a bitch after accusing an injured, scared child of racism, and made racism look like something that black people dream up.  It's especially glaring when Jessi says in every book, except #61, that racism is a problem, and yet we only see if in the one afterschool special, Keep Out, Claudia.  We see her accuse Mal of racism, Pinky (that name is problematic for reasons I'll get into) of racism, accuse a new classmate of racism for thinking certain art is funny and not wanting to eat certain food, and accuse a family across the street of racism when the mother called her daughter back inside, but then be confused when there's a real racist family in the Claudia book, and straight and plaintly tell Raul racism isn't something she's experienced, to the point that she has to ask Quint about it.

Aside from that, this book many problems, some of them pretty serious.  Mary Anne's codependence is alarming, Claudia is convinced a man in his mid-20's is putting the moves on her and no one sees a problem with that, it's heavily implied sex happens among kids with no access to birth control, the adults are criminally irresponsible, and that's just some of it!

So let"s get started.Collapse )
