PPC Holiday Songbook

The PPC Holiday Songbook is a compilation of filk by PPC Boarders, hosted with their permission by Neshomeh on her website. Each year, sometime in December, the PPC Holiday Filk Game is held, and the entries are then added to the Songbook. PPC-style filks have been written practically since the Board was founded, but the tradition of a Board-wide annual filk-writing game began in 2006 (or possibly 2005 or earlier—Neshomeh isn't sure anymore). After 2006, Neshomeh decided it would be fun to keep doing it, and has kept it up ever since.

All the songs are re-writes or parodies of popular Christmas or other seasonal music, but with a PPC-themed twist. For example, "Sod Rest Ye Merry, Brethren" is based on "God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen," but it's about the birth of the Organization; "Joy to the (Word) World" celebrates the death of a Mary Sue; and "The Twelve Days of Bad Slash" ... well, you get the idea.

Contents by YearEdit

Unfortunately, due to the fact that Neshomeh is a spaz, the records before 2008 are probably confused and definitely incomplete. If you have any information about what was written when, or if you have songs that should be in the Songbook but aren't, please contact her on her talk page, on the Board, or by e-mail (for which see her user profile).

2003 Edit

These filks were rediscovered by doctorlit via the Wayback Machine and added to the Songbook in January 2014. They're all Lord of the Rings-themed, with that familiar PPC-flavored twist.
