Mutating Genre Meme

I was tagged for a meme! This started at Pharyngula and I got it from k8.

First, the rules:

There are a set of questions below that are all of the form, "The best [subgenre] [medium] in [genre] is...". Copy the questions, and before answering them, you may modify them in a limited way, carrying out no more than two of these operations:

* You can leave them exactly as is.
* You can delete any one question.
* You can mutate either the genre, medium, or subgenre of any one question. For instance, you could change "The best time travel novel in SF/Fantasy is..." to "The best time travel novel in Westerns is...", or "The best time travel movie in SF/Fantasy is...", or "The best romance novel in SF/Fantasy is...".
* You can add a completely new question of your choice to the end of the list, as long as it is still in the form "The best [subgenre] [medium] in [genre] is...".
* You must have at least one question in your set, or you've gone extinct, and you must be able to answer it yourself, or you're not viable.

Then answer your possibly mutant set of questions. Please do include a link back to the blog you got them from, to simplify tracing the ancestry, and include these instructions.

Finally, pass it along to any number of your fellow bloggers. Remember, though, your success as a Darwinian replicator is going to be measured by the propagation of your variants, which is going to be a function of both the interest your well-honed questions generate and the number of successful attempts at reproducing them.

So, without further ado:

My great-great-great-great-great-grandparent is Pharyngula.
My great-great-great-great-grandparent is Metamagician and the Hellfire Club.
My great-great-great-grandparent is Flying Trilobite.
My great-great-grandparent is A Blog Around the Clock.
My great-grandparent is Primate Diaries.
My grandparent is Thus Spake Zuska.
My parent is a k8, a cat, a mission.

The best young adult novel in SF/Fantasy is: Over Sea, Under Stone by Susan Cooper

The best scary movie in comedy is: Shaun of the Dead

The best uplifting song in country music is: Why Walk When You Can Fly? by Mary Chapin Carpenter

The best cult novel in pre-Victorian fiction is: Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

The best high-carb food in Costa Rican cooking is gallo pinto

The best dissertation-related words I ever received from a scholar are: "you don't have to write THE dissertation, you just have to write A dissertation"

I am propagating this meme on to:
Anything Said
Underwater Knitting
Girl in Greenwood

and anyone else who wants to join in....

Ooh, I like your answers, and I'm glad you mentioned Susan Cooper. I keep forgetting that I've been meaning to re-read her books.
