DVD Commentary  
Odd timing, because I was rereading a commentary I did from 2007 only yesterday, and thinking it was a fun meme! Except back then, it was the entire story. This might be more manageable.

Pillaged from [livejournal.com profile] gryphonrhi

Pick any passage of 500 words or less from any story I've written, and comment to this post with that selection. I will then give you the equivalent of a DVD commentary on that snippet: what I was thinking when I wrote it, why I wrote it in the first place, what's going on in the character's heads, why I chose certain words, what this moment means in the context of the rest of the fic, lots of awful puns, and anything else that you’d expect to find on a DVD commentary track.

(I reserve the right to say: I have no idea what I was thinking. I also reserve the right to go, "No, really, I wrote that? What's it from?")

[livejournal.com profile] tygermama asked about this scene from Comfort.

Then he heard the sound of an axe splitting wood down behind the stable. Giving the horse a final pat, he headed out the back to investigate. He rounded the corner to find the object of his search – chopping wood. Chris felt his blood pressure rise. He loved Charlotte for her independent streak, but god damnit! Sometimes he thought she did things like this just to vex him. She had sons, ranch hands, she had him! And yet she persisted in doing things she had no need to be doing. This ended now! He’d be damned if people were going to think he didn’t treat his wife right, making her work like a field hand.

DVD Commentary Follows... )

DVD Commentary Short Form  
I've done the DVD commentary before (it even has its own tag!), but this new one going around is more of a 'short form' version.

Seen all over, but most recently at [livejournal.com profile] hils.

Pick a paragraph (or any passage less than 500 words) from any fanfic I've written, and comment to this post with that selection [Note: Please include the title/fandom & a link wouldn't be bad if it's something older]. I will then give you a DVD commentary on that snippet: what I was thinking when I wrote it, why I wrote it in the first place, what's going on in the character's heads, why I chose certain words, what this moment means in the context of the rest of the fic, lots of awful puns, and anything else that you'd expect to find on a DVD commentary track.

My newest fic is on the sidebar, older stuff posted on LJ is listed here, and then there's my archive, Tales From the Darkwood. Or,there's always the 'fic' tag.

2007 Year in Fic Recap  
I'd forgotten I started the New Year with a PWP I finished off for [livejournal.com profile] medie's 'Porning in the New Year' challenge! The Spaniard was that particular story.

As for the rest of the year...

Stories, Ficlets, and Drabbles )

DVD Commentarys )

For some reason, I thought I hadn't written as much as last year, but I guess I wrote more than I thought I did! Quite a bit more, actually.

Time Again!  
For DVD commentary requests! It's always fun, and it has a tendency to jump start my elusive muse. Most recent stuff is over on the sidebar, and all of it is on my archive, Tales From the Darkwood.

Prior commentaries are here.

A Twist on DVD Commentary  
Saw this over at [livejournal.com profile] taselby's

There's a DVD Commentary Challenge being set up. You can find all the info here.

I have no idea if anyone is at all interested in my fic, but if you are, all my fic is free to be DVD commentaried upon :)

My Useless Memory!  
I realized I never finished the DVD commentary that [livejournal.com profile] dejla requested for 'Should the Dawn Return'. I felt very guilty. So I opened up Word, found the file, and... discovered I did finish it. Checked my tags, and came to find that not only did I finish it, but I also posted it! Gah! I swear...

[sigh]

Okay, so since that's done after all, I'm opening the floor to another DVD commentary request. Maybe I'll actually remember this one! And I need a distraction from writing the latest fic.
