So, Remix reveals are up!! I got three amazing stories from 3 of my favorite writers, WingedFlight, [personal profile] edenfalling , and [personal profile] syrena_of_the_lake 

For the main exchange, Winged gave me the hilarious remix of the llamas on the lam.  Winged is so wry and clever and she just nails this story.

This is gorgeous.  I love how Liz gives the Star's daughter so much agency in her journey and choices.  It's lovely.

And then Syrena wrote a veritable tear-jerker with Jalur and the Cub.

The Peculiar Case Of The Man With The Missing Soul (the Turn! Turn! Turn! remix) (8651 words) by rthstewart
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Elementary (TV), Chalion Saga - Lois McMaster Bujold
Rating: General Audiences

Characters: Joan Watson (Elementary), Sherlock Holmes, Ms. Hudson (Elementary)
Additional Tags: Crossovers & Fandom Fusions, Alternate Universe - Modern Setting, Alternate Universe - Modern with Magic, The Bastard - Freeform, Case Fic, Character of Faith, Canon Trans Character
Summary:At first, Curtis Atherton's death appeared a simple suicide. Of course, nothing is simple when the Bastard is involved.  Sherlock Holmes, Doctor Joan Watson, and Ms. Hudson, Acolyte of the Bastard, are on the case.

I loved writing this story and really appreciated [personal profile] heliopausa for her help and her and Metonomia's beta assistance. It was a case fic, and long, which made it hard but the story, originally written for me at Yuletide, begged for expansion.

The second story was for the Lizzie Bennett Diaries and my thanks to [personal profile] syrena_of_the_lake  for the beta assistance. My recipient really liked it and I really enjoyed trying to write Darcy during the Netherfield arc. He's a fundamentally decent person but also an arrogant jerk so it was a challenge to balance the two.

clouds in my coffee (the diamond in the rough is looking so sparkly remix) (2296 words) by rthstewart
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Lizzie Bennet Diaries
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Lizzie Bennet/William Darcy
Characters: Lizzie Bennet, William Darcy, Bing Lee, Caroline Lee, Jane Bennet
Additional Tags: Netherfield Arc
Summary:The thing about living with someone for an entire month who you are otherwise attempting to exorcise from your existence is that you learn all manner of things about her you could have gone your whole life without learning.


Elizabeth, having rather expected to affront him, was amazed at his gallantry; but there was a mixture of sweetness and archness in her manner which made it difficult for her to affront anybody; and Darcy had never been so bewitched by any woman as he was by her. He really believed, that were it not for the inferiority of her connections, he should be in some danger.
Pride and Prejudice, Chapter 10, by Jane Austen

I can't stand it.  I just have to post about this.  Surely some of you are watching the LBDs.  Yes, some of it does stretch credulity.  But, I don't care.  Like Sherlock Holmes, I love P&P in its many, many incarnations; all of them, whatever their flaws.  Even the one with Greer Garson and Laurence Olivier and the recycled Gone With the Wind sets and costuming.  So many things about the LBD have been great:  the multiracial look; the representation of Lydia that is compassionate and wrenching; increasing Caroline and Charlotte's roles; updating Charlotte's decision to "join" with Mr. Collins; the introduction of Fitz; the Enron folder; Ms. de Bourgh venture capitaltist; and Darcy as off-screen hipster.

And today, the LBD went there in a wonderful mash up of The Scene.  You know the Scene.  The LBD's both broke some new ground and yet also grounded the scene in the depictions we know so well, from book and screen. 

"What videos?"

Why yes, I would rather be writing a book chapter than working on my NFE.  Oh please, yes, because I so adore work done in the name of "development" that others give me because "it is good for me." 

Excuse me, but at my age, I'm entitled to know what is good for me and what is not.  Exercise is good for me.  Fannish fun is good for me (as opposed to fannish angst (gawd, what is with me a fail?) which makes me an insomniac).  Watching the latest update to the Lizzie Bennet Video Diaries is good for me.  Trying to write a 20,000 word chapter in three days is not good for me.  oh, yeah, I get a pub credit.  Yippee.

Here, see Bing Lee and Jane Bennet be totally adorable:

Adorbs, right? I am so in love with the casting and with Charlotte's story arc. Last week's episode with Caroline was a complete thrill for me. I'm really curious how they are going to handle th e Wickham/Georgiana/Lydia issue. I just don't think that seduction, eloping or even pregnancy is enough. I think it's going to be a bit grimmer.
And Princess Leia is going to be an X-Wing pilot, which I know some are sort of down on, but I think it's pretty cool.
Also, anyone else watching Twitter and getting depressed at not being at San Diego Comic Con?  Sigh.  Really, I'm sure it would be too crowded.  Really.

Remix Redux 10: X Hits the Spot went live!!  I'm really sorry I didn't participate this year, but between the Big Bang, the AW update, and travel, I knew I wasn't going to be able to get my act together.  And Remix Madness goes live tonight!  Someone remixed one of mine!!  SQUEEE!  There are 6, count em 6 stories in the Madness for Narnia and 3 in the Redux 10 which is a great showing for the fandom. 

[livejournal.com profile] cofax7 pointed me in the direction of this yesterday, which I'd seen go by on The Mary Sue and then didn't follow up. The Lizzie Bennet Video Diaries.

It's being updated today!!! You can follow Darcy, Caroline, Jane, Lizzie, Bing Lee, Charlotte, and Lydia on Twitter! Tumblr! Facebook! It's so exciting! On Saturday night there was a wedding and now Bing and Jane are following each other on Twitter! So exciting! I think the best place to find the Twitter accounts is here.  As the Mary Sue says, the meta is irresistible.
