Baubles and Broomsticks by Morgan O'Friel

Lesbians, Mutants, and The Occult. 

Being a mutant isn’t all its cracked up to be. Mary Stevens can’t even take a bath without her abilities raising hell and trying to drown her. Living with her brothers—and fellow mutants—Greg and Brian, she’s working to understand how their powers relate to the greater world, while trying to discover just how to live a normal life. Or, well, as normal of a life as a lesbian mutant running an occult shop can hope for.

Note: Baubles and Broomsticks is unfinished, and will likely remain so.  It contains some graphic sexual content, graphic violence, and harsh language.

What’s not to love?

By Sonja Nitschke, editor

Sep 29, 2008: When I began reading Baubles and Broomsticks, I wasn’t expecting it to be in movie script format, but I found the brief, to-the-pointness of it refreshing. Morgan also provides a cast page, complete with real life people and that’s always fun.

Only one episode has been posted (not counting the seasonal special), but I am looking forward to reading more (and not just because anything remotely mutant-ish makes me happy). The mutant concept is fresh and unique, complete with nosebleeds and other unpleasantness.

My one, small complaint would be that it was reminiscent of the Angel/Buffy ‘verse even before it was mentioned in the text. But again, since only the first episode has been posted, it might be a little too early to be making such judgments.

All in all a good start, and I’ll be looking forward to read more. Review subject to change, of course, as more is added to the story.

Take a Chance

By Miladysa, author of Refuge of Delayed Souls

Nov 30, 2008: I have to admit that I started to read this Series with a few misconceptions. My confession probably isn’t going to do me any favours but I feel it is necessary because there could be others out there who have failed to give Baubles and Broomsticks the consideration it deserves.

Firstly, I had difficulty accepting online fiction in script format. Secondly, I had the bizarre idea that I was not a part of this story’s intended audience. With that out of [more . . .]

Mutants in Movie Script Form

By Sora, member

Nov 23, 2008: Summary: Baubles and Broomsticks is about Mary Stevens, a mutant living with her brothers. Through crazy events, she comes in contact with many different mutants, some good and some bad. She uses her powers to help the authorities track other mutants.

Likes: I wasn’t expecting this to be in script form either and when I do see movie scripts, I’m always turned off because most of the scripts I do happen to come across have nothing but lists of what is [more . . .]
