Since the Immortal Writers have trusted me with their story, William Shakespeare has also entrusted me to post his and other writers' responses to adaptations of their work, fan fiction, and other material. Here is Beatrix Potter's startled response to the killer bunny in Monty Python and the Holy Grail. -Jill
Once upon a time, there were four little rabbits. These rabbits were adorable, fluffy, playful, cuddly, and as cute as could be.
I have a fondness for rabbits. When I was 26 years old and not yet an Immortal Writer, I bought my first rabbit, Benjamin Bouncer. Three years later, after my poor Benjamin Bouncer died, I bought a rabbit named Peter.
I'm sure you all are familiar with Peter and his siblings, Flopsy, Mopsy, and Cottontail. I'm also sure that you were not terrified of my little friends.
I've always loved rabbits, so you can imagine how appalled I was when Bowers here showed me a moving picture called Monty Python and the Holy Grail.
You wouldn't believe it! Bowers, and some of the other Immortal Writers, thought that it was an appropriate show! They laughed at my reaction to the ending! Suffice it to say, I was flabbergasted!
A killer bunny? Rabbits are nothing to fear. Benjamin Bouncer and Peter were some of my closest friends. How dare a bunch of silly fillm-makers destroy the good reputation of rabbits!
I fear that I will need to work on the psychological issues presented to me in this movie. I can't say I've quite forgiven Bowers yet for forcing me to watch that, that...blasphemous show.
Remember that rabbits are good, kind beings. And shame on that Monty Python for suggesting otherwise!
