<latemp_subject "Selina Mandrake - The Slayer" />
A supernatural dramedie, this screenplay has many ties to my other screenplay,
<a href="$(ROOT)/humour/Star-Trek/We-the-Living-Dead/">Star Trek: “We, the
Living Dead”</a>, and was part of the grand Star Trek Deep Space Nine /
Buffy the Vampire Slayer / etc. great conspiracy theory thing that I imagined
in my “grand mania” that has inspired me ever since. It’s very
far-fetched, but on the other hand conveys many serious messages and insights.
Hope you enjoy it!

Well, since this work is a parody of <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buffy_the_Vampire_Slayer"><i>Buffy the Vampire Slayer</i></a> (written by
Whedon</a>), and contains characters from there,
I am theoretically protected by the Copyright’s
<a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fair_use#Fair_use_and_parody">“right of
parody”</a> as part of the ”Fair Use” provision. There are other parodies of
Buffy’s works online and possibly offline, and no one was sued yet.
This work also uses other characters and concepts, from other copyrighted, and
already Public Domain works.
All the text in <i>Selina Mandrake - The Slayer</i> is original, and as far as
I’m concerned can be used under the terms of
<a rel="license" href="http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/">the Creative Commons
Attribution-ShareAlike licence Unported (CC-by-sa), either version 3.0, or at
your option any later version</a>, but like I said, the situation is
more complicated than that.
I’m putting it here on this site in hope it will amuse or inspire
people, and also because it may encourage people to watch some episodes of
<i>Buffy the Vampire Slayer</i>, or of <i>Star Trek: The Next Generation</i> or
<i>Star Trek: Deep Space 9</i>, learn about Jewish culture and some <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ancient_Near_East">Near East history</a>,
<a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Three_Musketeers"><i>The Three
Musketeers</i></a>, etc. etc. all of which I can highly recommended. I’m not
charging people any money to download, build, or view the works, but I
have some web commercials which I’m making some small money from, and which
I hope are acceptable to the copyright holders. Please don’t sue me.

- I saw this film in the cinema and was impressed by its take on a brutal
honesty criticism of various 2010s culture, as seen by the apparently more old
fashioned (but still funny as ever) muppets. I eventually decided to adopt a
similar approach in writing <i>Selina</i>, both as a criticism of some
of our contemporary culture, and more importantly as a way to honestly convey
my farfetched imaginary world (induced by a long period of
<a href="$(ROOT)/philosophy/psychology/hypomanias/">hypomanias and manias</a>)
into this screenplay.
