I don't know how I JUST NOW realized this, but apparently Saved by the Bell is set in Palisades, CA, and Palisades is the name of the rival school in the High School Wars series. If you remove "Sweet" from "Sweet Valley", you get "Valley" which was Baysides rival high school.
Mind blown! (...erm, it...doesn't take much to blow my mind to bits, btw).
One of these days I'm going to pull a Roseanne and lock myself in my room and write an amazing mash up, post SVH destroying earthquake, where Sweet Valley High merges with Palisades and lo and behold, our SVH friends meet Zack, Slater, Screech, Kelly, Jessi, and Lisa. I can SO see Jessica and Kelly getting into a cheerleader war, Jessi and Liz getting into a "Save the Whales" war, Zack and Todd having a basketball war, Slater and Ken having a football war, Screech and Winston having some kind of science war, and Lisa and Lila saying "screw you, bunch of idiots" and maxing out their dads' credit cards and being awesome together.
OMG. Now I want to write this book. NOW.
I'm going to find a way to fake having mono for the next 6 months so I can stay glued to my desk and write this.
Does anyone remember this starring Brittany Daniel and Sarah Michelle Geller?
Just found out it's available on Hulu.
I'm not sure if this is permitted, or even if folks are still around, but I always loved and had a great time reading the recaps on this community.
Unfortunately, my parents are moving, and this means my Sweet Valley Kids, Twins, High, University, ETC. collection will no longer have a home. My tiny apartment has no room in it for them.
I am going to sell the lot to a local book reseller or try ebay (I would never throw a book out.), but wanted to drop a line here. I don't have a master list, but if anyone had one they had been looking for, or was missing from their collection, I would happily send you mine for the price of shipping. Anything for a fellow fan.
So, let me know, and I'm happy to let you know if I have it. I have most of the Twins, Unicorn Club, and that era. And then good chunks from the others.
Happy reading. :)
ETA: Thanks for the responses guys! Happy some of these will be going to happy places. I'm looking for Baby Sitter Club fans next - just a headsup in case there's a crossover audience here, I have a huge collection of those as well. :)
