Yes, I'm going to start with the easy one to write commentary for: Orpheus in the Underground (Dark Minuet)
Let me start off with this admission: I've been dying to write a remix for Eurydice
since I first read it a couple of years ago. Not because I think it's a bad story (it's really not), but because it hits all of my kinks: prickly and not necessarily nice Faith and Xander, a tentative offer of friendship despite a problematic history, and allusions to mythology (in this case, the mythology around Orpheus descending to Hades to rescue his dead wife Eurydice.
Needless to say, I've always been disappointed that I never got thistlerose
in the Remix, so when the Mods decided to throw open Remix Madness for the first time this year, and I saw that thistlerose
had volunteered, I was on this story like a shot.( More discussion under the cutCollapse )
So, there you have it. It's a pretty straight-forward process Orpheus in the Underground
, and not terribly interesting to boot.
Feel free to throw any questions you might have in the comments. (Assuming anyone is still reading this journal. Since it's been awhile since I posted, that part is somewhat in doubt.)
