plazmah: Aishwarya Rai dressed in traditional Indian clothes (bollywood: aishwarya)
There's this meme going around where you replace white actors with actors of colour in various fandoms that don't have much diversity. I hadn't been familiar with any of the fandoms until I came across [livejournal.com profile] entwashian's recasting of Buffy: The Vampire Slayer. Loved it! Wanted to do one myself! But... I couldn't think of a fandom. Then [personal profile] dhobikikutti mentioned recasting the Star Wars universe in Bollywood style and I simply COULD NOT RESIST! :DDDD

So here it is, Star Wars Bollywood-ishstyle! Let's divide this shit up.

Original Trilogy )

Prequel Trilogy )

(Originally, I had cast Asian characters to replace the original characters of colour too. But then I figured that since chromatic characters are under-represented anyway, erasure of existing characters isn't all that great. But if you want me to share who I had cast as Lando Calrissian and Mace Windu, I will. *g*)

Fun fact: up until a few months ago, I didn't realize that paisley print was the same thing as mango print. I've always called the pattern "mango print" because that's what we call it at home. That's what my mom and my aunts all call it. Come to think of it, I wasn't really ever sure what paisley print referred to. I thought it was some kind of flowery polka-dotted pattern, for some reason. Then one day I was online looking for tiling Twitter backgrounds, came across a pattern labeled as paisley, and became very confused. "Wait, that's a mango print! It's called paisley too? But... why?" Wiki came to the rescue of course. Basically, the East India Company couldn't import as many paisley shawls as they wanted to from India, so they started making them in a Scottish town called Paisley.

I dunno about anyone else, but I think "paisley" is a really odd name for the pattern when you consider its linguistic roots. Like I said, I think of paisley and I envision flowers and polka-dots. This? Is none of that. I'm calling it mango print til the end of time and I don't care if people don't know what I'm talking about. :P

So last night I suddenly got the BSOD on my laptop for no apparent reason. Fucking BSOD. Anyway, I glibly thought that perhaps there was a god I needed to appease in order to get my technology to work. But then the question remains: who would the Hindu god of technology be? As I fell asleep I decided it was Saraswati but then my mind made a leap to the question "if the Hindu gods were high school students at some posh boarding school in the Himalayan foothills, what would they be like?"

This is what I came up with. (I'm too fannish for my own good.)

A Day In The Life Of A Half-Lost Goddess. )

The only male version of the MPDG I've ever seen in a movie is SRK's character in Kal Ho Na Ho, hahaha. Please tell me there are others out there, in either Bollywood or Hollywood.

I wasn't going to post again, but I saw the following headline on Yahoo's main page and just about died laughing: Bush shows off tap dancing skills for reporters No, seriously? He tap danced for reporters? I... there are no words. So maybe pictures instead?

1. Magneto VS The Universe. Some are kinda funny, some are freaking hilarious!

2. Indian man-candy! Especially Hrithik, because I have the biggest crush on him right now. Picspam heavy behind the cut. )

Someone should write me Ash/Abhi/Hrithik as compensation. Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] wasabi_girl1 for the beta. Don't know if I got any of the personalities right, but I didn't want to tarry too long on this fic anyway. Enjoy the fruit of my heresy, you bastards! ;P
