Review of chapter "To Seek Revenge" from tallyvision
That was very nice. I giggled quite a bit. Sweeney Todd is my third favorite Sondheim show (Company being the first, so I *loved* Anya's line about the "Yuppies"), and I love how you incorporated Anyanka into the creation of the legend. Bonus points for including Darla and Angelus, as well.
This was well written and very enjoyable. As a matter a fact, one might have to say of this story: "God, that's good!"
...if one was a total theater dork. (Which, if one is me, is entirely true.)
Comments from author:
Well, they are the original Yuppies, though the song "Another Hundred People" makes me think they're the bridge & tunnel crowd instead.

The story doesn't make sense without Anyanka as grantor of vengeance. It seems fitting that calling for vengeance inevitably leads to the destruction of the supplicant. I just wanted to meld the two shows as simply as possible. Anya was a theatre buff--'fourth wall' in OMWF; this was my explanation.

Review of chapter "To Seek Revenge" from Jonakhensu
And now I'm torn between qanting to watch the movie and worrying about the gore level... Blood is fine, body parts are not.
Comments from author:
You really should see some production of the show, if possible. Helena Bonham Carter just can't sing worth a darn. Also, Tim Burton cut the Ballad of Sweeney Todd from the film, which anyone would consider unfortunate.

If gore makes you nervous, don't watch the film.
