Some time last year (or was it late in 2009?), Alexander Kandiloros approached Leo, who then approached me, with the request to contribute a piece of fanfiction for an anthology he was working on. The rules were that it had to at the most four pages and be centred on a film character that could be alive on April the 27th, 2010 (a Tuesday); the subject was to be that character’s doings on that day.
Naturally, we jumped at the chance, choosing Kusakabe Mei, the youngest daughter from Tonari no Totoro — arguably the greatest film ever made — as the character to follow, envisioning her as a kind-hearted woman in her 60s.
The book “Vad gör de nu?” was released in February this year. It collects 51 stories by 52 authors, each piece detailing a different movie and character, and each being accompanied by a piece of fanart in full colour. It’s really pretty neat, which I feel I can safely say, since none of the proceeds come even near me.
If you are not interested in reading any more than the piece by us (which I, in all modesty, must claim to be one of the better, though many others are also worth the while), you can help yourself to it (and other works) under Get Stuff, or get it here:

I’m afraid that it’s in Swedish, so if you don’t read that, you are (as often happens on Eintritt Verboten) out of luck. Otherwise, share and enjoy!
