Man, Remix #9 came at essentially the height of job-related stress for me this year, and I'm a little shocked to find I survived it!

I received the truly lovely A Slow Pan (The Scene-by-Scene Remix) by [livejournal.com profile] prettykitty_aya, which was a remix of a Brendon/Shane ficlet I wrote ages ago, why you gotta work so hard, baby.

When I was first migrating to this journal, I wasn't really sure what I was going to write--bandom had kind of faded from my heart despite my affection for it, and Generation Kill nor the STXI reboot had taken root for me yet. So I noodled around with a handful of ficlets that I figured no one would ever read, but they were good exercises without committing to a full story. And then I wrote smoke stupid cigarettes and drink stupid wine, which was kind of it for me in terms of original creative thought for bandom (i.e. not challenges).

To have [livejournal.com profile] prettykitty_aya take something I'd all but forgotten about and transform it into this truly creative remixed work was humbling. I went back and re-read the original story and was surprised at how much it conveyed about my perception of Brendon/Shane at the time; and A Slow Pan (The Scene-by-Scene Remix) investigates that fully, in what I might imagine Shane's inner narration might be. So, thank you. I loved this, this little jump back in time for me.

And, in the circular nature of contracting fandoms mixed with nostalgia, I wrote for [livejournal.com profile] prettykitty_aya as well! I took the author's very first bandom story, Precarious, and retold it from Jon's point of view. It's funny to think about what 2006 was like, five years later--so much has changed, so many fundamental things have changed. It was a real lightness to go back to the beginning and think about what it must have been like for Jon to first have this opportunity--this chance to live a dream (and meet someone who would change your life) before anything fell out the way it did. I hope I served the story well. Precarious (The Inverted Precipice Remix)

My second story for remix was [personal profile] waketosleep's delightfully hilarious Random Acts of Gayness, a Hawaii 5-0 story where Steve...is not Steve. [personal profile] waketosleep had so many awesome H50 stories to choose from, and as it's a fandom that has suckered me thoroughly, it wasn't easy to choose! But I enjoyed the opportunity to do a story from Steve's point of view, seeing as Danny comes much more easily to me. Read the original, and then read the remix! Random Acts of Gayness (The Impersonator Mambo Redub)

And with remix and Inception re:bb over I feel like I can finally take a breath. At least, until Femslash gets under way.

dear the internet, by which I mean inception and hawaii 5-0 fandoms (but mostly inception):

I have somehow, today, managed to finished secretly a reef rat, the improbable kinda epic self-indulgence inception/hawaii 5-0 fusion where Arthur is Steve McGarrett's brother.

I have, honestly, no idea how this happened. How 27,000 words of this happened.

Anyway, if you're not a fan of the WIP, you can read it in all 50 mostly flat threaded parts here.

I'll repost it in full after beta. I have somehow managed to quell my regret at the flippant title. You can find a handful of author's notes here with handy dandy visual references.

thank you all for the comments and joy. love, me.

And NOW: on to [info]i_reversebang. APRIL 17TH, YOU ARE COMING AT ME SO FAST.

Also Remix is only three weeks away, and I have no idea what I'm going to remix. (This happens every year.)

partial uneven chaos (the fiery crash remix)
by templemarker

Notes: Original story was Out of Chaos by [livejournal.com profile] emei, for Remix Redux '09. Dark themes. AU. My thanks to the people who helped.

She wrote on the last of the parchment she had, a handful of inches from the end of a roll tucked in the back of an old magazine, wrinkled and worn but still useful.

Read this story at Remix Redux or my fic archive.
