Why yes, I AM crazy, thanks for asking!

Just signed up for kamikazeremix, a Supernatural remix challenge in which you are assigned a specific STORY to remix. *mad laughter*

Why would I do this to myself, you ask?

1. Last summer I took my first ever writing course. I was working on a remix fic, and trying to explain to a group of professors and students why I like challenges and remixes. I told them, "The more restictions there are, the harder my creative brain can struggle against the cuffs and come up with something really unique." Which is true, despite the fact that I embarrassed myself with a full-body mime of fighting restraints. So - this will be AWESOME!

2. I get to force somebody else to remix the SPN story I pick. *evil laugh* Nah, don't worry, remixer, I'm not into real life non-con.

Anybody else crazy enough to sign up?

I think this sounds like tremendous fun, and can totally understand what you mean about finding your way around the confines of a situation. It's part of why I love old movies, when the censors were in full force. The dialogue and looks and gestures that made it through really had to be thought out. Not that there aren't smart movies being made today, but man, some of the banter and innuendo was amazing.

And I'm kind of sorry I don't know the fandom well enough to give this one a go. I'm a full season behind, and will be until it comes out on DVD in September (which is just bone-headed of them - why not release them in the summer so we can watch the new season as it airs?)

Good luck, and have a blast!

Thanks, miz! I'll probably be panicing come August 9, but it's good for the soul.

I know what it's like being a season behind everyone else - so frustrating!

I agree with this! I think it would be a good challenge to be assigned an actual story to remix.

And Isis comes up with the PERFECT icon!

I just went there and checked it out. It looks interesting, but I've never done anything like this before. I'm going to be away in Sept. for two weeks with no computer access, so that gives me two less weeks to get this done. Oh, what the hell, something new would be good for me. *goes to try to pick a story to get remixed* Any suggestions?

Hmm, well, it has to be at least 500 words, so your drabbles are out. lemme poke around, see if anything pops out at me.

But really, the point is to find one that YOU want remixed. One where you really want to read someone else's take on teh story you told.

It's going to take some heavy thinking on my part to figure out which one I'd like to see another take on. But I'll get started! Good thing sign ups are going on for a while!

If you're looking for suggestions I'm thinking "Head Games" or "The Space Within" would be fun to see remixes of.

Head Games was actually the first one that came to my mind, but The Space Within is an excellent suggestion. Thank you!

Gaaah!!!! I did it. Signed up for the wincest version of The Space Within. I read some of the remixes from last year and they are amazing. Is trying to take deep calming breaths and telling myself it will be fine.

*joins you in the deep breathing exercises*

eek, that sounds... really challenging.
Jul. 28th, 2010 11:44 pm (UTC)
You know, it really really does. Hence the name!

I am seriously considering this! *facepalm* Not that I have a lot of stories written in the SPN world but I do like a challenge. Never mind that my Dean/Cas is due about the same time!

Dooooooo it. All the cool kids are! *is a bad influence*
