So, this got me thinking (not the Selena Gomez; the movie). Now that Joss Whedon is finally getting the buzz he deserves and becoming a household name, he should branch out into other areas. And by branch out, I mean he should start his own writing school. I already have a name for it.
The Joss Whedon School of Awesome.
Think about it, man! Think of the incredible learning experience this school could offer! Learning the writing process of Joss Whedon FROM Joss Whedon! Learning how to write characters from all sides, in all manners! All those kick-ass ladies! The captains without a moral compass! The vampires with souls! The superheros with brains and hearts and guts and egos! THESE ARE NOT THE HAMMER!!
...I think I'm getting off topic.
RIGHT. Joss Whedon School of Awesome.
After a brief mention on Twitter, I had some suggestions for degrees: a Bachelor of Awesome, a PhD in Horribleness (with classes taught by Doctor Horrible himself, if he can pull himself away from the Evil League of Evil). A Master of Heart-breaking Deaths (*Firefly/Serenity spoiler alert* I'm still not over Wash, yo). Classes would include gems like Cursing in Chinese, Proper Uses of Slayer Strength, Future History Post-Sino-American War, Quips for the Modern Hero, Quips for the Modern Anti-Hero, Writing Your Own Earworm of a Tune, or New Ways to Break Your Fans' Hearts into Teeny Tiny Unmendable Pieces. There could be locations all over the verse, from Asgard to Sunnydale.
And so. Joss. Buddy. Let's make this happen. I'll be there, first row, all bells-y.
Oh, and so much congrats to you, sir. You deserve every bit of it.
