Krazy Kat, by George Herriman, is a gorgeous and poetic comic strip from the 1940s. Bill Watterson of Calvin and Hobbes has cited it as one of his biggest influences.

It is impossible to explain all the nuances, but in brief, Ignatz (the mouse) throws bricks at Krazy (the cat), which Krazy (who is in love with Ignatz) takes as a sign of love (there's an actual reason for this, but it's not terribly important).

Herriman writes half the text of the comic in this crazy mixed-up quasi-Creole patois. I attempted it in some of the dialogue, but mostly I didn't even try.

Title: There Is A Happy Land
Fandom: Krazy Kat
Rating: G for the lot
Disclaimer: Were that these were mine; but no, that honor belongs to Geo. Herriman.

When a denizen of Coconino yells 'Run!', Krazy has learned to stand stock-still, because it means that Ignatz is aiming. )

If you happen to be working on some creative writing project, fanfiction or NaNoWriMo or what have you, post exactly one sentence/paragraph/whatever from each of your current work(s) in progress in your journal. It should probably be your favourite or most intriguing sentence so far, but what you choose is entirely your discretion. Mention the title (and genre) if you like, but don’t mention anything else — this is merely to whet the general appetite for your forthcoming work(s).

I did this for the comics, mixes, and fic I have in progress. There are kind of a lot of these.

The result is over on my blog ([ profile] erinptah); follow the fake cut!

( Starring characters from fake news, Hellsing, Doctor Who, Strangers With Candy, Krazy Kat, Marimite, The Ambiguously Gay Duo, and The Lord of the Rings, not necessarily in that order. )
