So, at long last, the writers of the RemixRedux09
stories have been revealed.
As some of you guessed, I wrote the massive Reaping the Whirlwind (Boom Boom Ba Remix)
, which was a remix of Six Drabbles About Dawn and Death
Just for the record: I am never, ever doing that to myself again.
I'm filing this one under, "What the hell was I thinking?"
Actually, I do kind of know what I was thinking, and I deserved to be kicked in the head for it. Repeatedly.
Before I explain my insanity for this year, I want to take time out to thank everyone who read what was basically a novel and actually gave feedback on it. I figured that I'd get zero feedback during the anonymous period because asking anyone to read 230-page fic in one sitting is really a little bit beyond the pale. And yet, people did exactly that. I can't tell you how grateful I am that you all gave it a go.
Special love to brunettepet
who not only read every part, but gave detailed feedback on every part (you don't know how much you made my day), to secondalto
for listing it in the su_herald
that first day, and to original writer nothorse
for leaving positive feedback and reccing the story on her personal LJ.( What worked, what didn't, and why next year I'm taking Valium before I type word one for the Remix...Collapse )
Now that I've finished with my TL;DR meta, I figure I better point you to the fic.
In this journal I'm going to post one part a day for the next 14 days, mostly because I still think asking people to read 230 pages in one go is asking just a little bit too much. For people that want to read ahead, they can get the whole story on the Remix community

And, finally, while I was scrounging around YouTube for a Dead Like Me
clip, I found this really nice Dead Like Me
fan video by Ezyka
. Although all of the clips are taken from the series proper, the song, as well as the clips used, fit shockingly well with Reaping the Whirlwind
