Now that the Remix authors have been revealed, you probably know by now that I wrote Everyone in Their Places (Jumping to Conclusions Disco Hustle)
, a Farscape
And yes, it's not a fandom I've never written in before.
There were a lot of reasons why this year's Remix was a tough one for me, most of which were real life-related (see: getting laid off, looking for a job, just being disorganized while my life was completely up-ended...)
The smaller but not insignificant part of this year's challenge was that I was matched with someone who had nothing
fandom. To be fair to the administrators, I said that Farscape
was one of the fandoms I was willing to write in, so no fault on them for what was an eccentric fandom match with simplystars
, who had one story in BSG2003 fandom (also a potential match), a lot of stories in Farscape
fandom, and had written a whole lot more for shows I don't even watch and have never watched
I think the word "Yikes!" comes into play here, although that was all on me and not on simplystars
You'd think I'd learn. I mean, I did the exact same thing to myself 3 years ago when I said I was willing to write in BSG2003 fandom and got matched with someone who (at the time) wrote exclusively in BSG2003. The end result was The Murder of Crows (Blackhawk Down Remix)
. While the remix was hard to do, I was active enough around the edges of BSG2003 fandom and I was familiar enough with canon that I could make it work.Farscape
on the other hand...oy! ( Meta on Writing Everyone in Their PlacesCollapse )
So, not a whole lot of clever insight to be found this year, and not a whole lot of clever discussion on writing process.
Unless you count "panic" as a writing process, that is.
Anyway, I'm off to a BBQ this afternoon, so I probably won't get to comments until tonight or tomorrow.
I hope you enjoy the fic!
