BAMF Lit 101

Behold! The most BAMF required reading list of all time.

A Tale of Two Squibs


Highborn wizards have been terrorizing the browbeaten squibs for centuries. Hermione Granger travels to Paris to become involved in the burgeoning campaign for squib rights, only to find herself shepherding the entire revolution against a racist, oppressive aristocracy. In power are her now arch nemeses Cormac McLaggen and Ernie McMillan, Hogwarts alumni, both of whom secretly lust after their shared political opponent.

The Hacker in the Rye

After bugging several psychiatrist offices near ritzy prep schools, Lisbeth Salander writes “The Emo Code,” a computer virus capable of bringing down Twilight fansites, persecuting cyber bullies, and deleting the Facebook profiles of so-called “phonies”.

Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Pointy

Dr. Jekyll has finally come up with the cure for vampirism by sampling splinters from Buffy’s favorite slaying tool. However, mid-process, the essence of all the vamp the stake has ever killed forms one consciousness, “Mr. Pointy,” within the psyche of the benevolent scientist himself! Will Buffy have to send Dr. Jekyll to a hell dimension to save the world from the sinister Mr. Pointy? Will the Scoobies find another solution? Will Buffy bang Mr. Pointy to make Spike and Angel jealous!?

The Old Man and the Sea of Children’s Blood

President Snow’s long lost and fabulously wealthy older brother Santiago Snow builds a castle on a remote estate somewhere in Appalachia. Around it, he digs a moat, filling it to the brim with the imported blood from District 4 kids. In the gooey liquid barrier, he releases a single vampire-marlin, and spends his days chasing after in a rickety canoe.

Alice in Zombieland

After defending all her friends from the hungry undead, Michonne suffers a blow to the skull. When she wakes up, she’s compelled to follow a top-hat-wearing, watch-fob-fumbling zombie bunny down a suspiciously deep hole in the ground. She’s accompanied on her misadventure by a zombie dog, who agrees when she says, “Toto, I don’t think we’re on AMC anymore.”

About the author

A native of Jacksonville, Florida, Kristen Bobst grew up a tomboy with two brothers, several unruly pets, and an overactive imagination. After surviving four years of Gossip Girl-style antics at a ritzy private high school, Kristen went on to the University of Florida (Go Gators!). Due to an uncanny Oscar Wilde obsession, she then traveled to Dublin to study Anglo-Irish Literature at Trinity College. While overseas, she spent much time staying in seedy hostels and carousing with the locals. To this day, Kristen cannot convert Fahrenheit to Celsius without the use of a scientific calculator. Kristen recently completed the University of Southern California's MFA program in Screenwriting. She still has an overactive imagination and several unruly pets. Emily McGregor is the V.P. of Production at Comediva. Emily was that token girl in a vast sea of pimply-faced techno-geeks in her high school AV club. Now, she develops content for the interwebs and directs webisodes and stuff (psst, she directed The Divas and Guy Time). She also made that thing you just read; that thing right above this thing you're reading now. She hopes you liked it. If not, don't leave a comment. If you did, send her flowers and whiskey. Comediva. Where the funny girls are.
