-blanket apology for funky formatting---one of these days, LJ will not have
weird line breaks when posting from an email, but today is not that day.
Also apologies for not having a direct link to my original fic, but I can't
go on LJ from here, so will have to wait for later-
Remix 8 is live! I was so excited that this happened yesterday, and then
totally forgot to post about the lovely fic that I got, though I remembered
to thank my remixer, thank goodness. Thank your remixer. They took on one
of your stories and made something new and awesome and fun from it. Thank
them lots for the time and effort they put in. It's good manners,
My remixer took my short Atlantis/team drabble The Weight of Water
and played it into The
Weight of Water (Athosian Remastered)
, a fascintating rumination by
Teyla about how she fits and finds herself in Atlantis and with the rest of
the Atlantis crew. 2nd person POV can be tricky to write, so I am doubly
impressed that the writer did it so well, pulling in nice repetitions and
the rhythms of the first piece and making it even fuller and richer and its
own work. Go read it and tell whoever it is that it is awesome.
I had a great time writing my remix (omg so much fun, ate my brain for the
past two weeks and I can't wait to share it with all of you) and more
importantly, my remixee liked it as well! That's always at least a mild
anxiety, so glad to have the validation. It's amusing to see how the fandoms
settle out for Remix--lots of Harry Potter (not a shock) and SGA, but not a
lot of my other favs. Only 1 Criminal Minds, 2 NCIS and 1 CSI: NY? Sheesh,
guys, where's the love? ;o) Some lovely Narnia reworkings, though.
Which reminds me, I read a great Flack/Prentiss crossover last week where
they had some past relationship (even though I'm not sure I bought Prentiss
logic in why they broke up but whatever) and it was super cute. Especially
the Garcia parts. It's on bau_fic
about a page back; I'll try to
remember to add in the link when I get home. For some reason, those two
worlds mesh really well in my head. Don't know why.
School has been great (if tiring) and this past weekend was the last set of
games for Chicks with Lacrosse Sticks; we actually won a game! The girls are
cute and enthusiastic (mostly) so I'll miss hanging out with them, but not
going to miss all the extra time it sucked up on Tuesday/Thursday evenings.
Also, flying on Friday to my 5th college reunion! Where does the time go???
Hope all's well with everyone. Sorry I've been so sporadic on the journal,
I'll try to get on that.
