20 Of The Craziest Lines From This Bonkers Beyoncé / Prince Fanfic
Every time Beyoncé releases an album now, there’s a groundswell of fan-created art that comes along with it. Jezebel is calling one particular creation “our generations’s Finnegan’s Wake,” but this fanfic is so much more epic than that.
“The Lemons,” a story so dense it is being told in multiple parts to prevent us all from collectively dying of laughter at the same time, is a fantastical tale of what happens when Beyoncé stops being polite and starts getting real. Baltimore native Eric Richardson created the blog after posting a series of funny tweets; he’s slicing and dicing the post-Lemonade landscape at Bey’s house, where Jay Z always comes out on the losing end of the conversation. Guest stars Taraji P. Henson, J. Cole, Solange Knowles, Tina Knowles, Prince, Ava DuVernay, and more make guest appearances to round out this insane story.
You should definitely read the whole thing, but here are the top 20 lines that made me cackle out loud.
Bey: Every time you cheat I’m gonna do this
Jay: Write an album?
Bey: Start a movement

Jay: Sister-in-law. Mama Tina.
Mama T: Stereotypical Black Man

Ye: You have my favorite sense of humor out of all of the black women I know
Bey: I’m the only black woman you know

Taraji: WHY YOU ALIVE

Bey: Its a shame you won’t see the floral arrangements I have planned for your funeral
Ye: People really just need to give Desiigner a chance you know? The future thing is like a cocoon, you know? I’m surprised Lee doesn’t want to give him a spot on Empire. It would be a great look for you guys.
Taraji: Lmao you know Obama is playing Lucious’ long lost father the moment he gets out of office, right? Ain’t nobody thinking about that panda boy.
