My Remix Experience 2007

I did remixredux for the second time this year and had a good time! For those unfamiliar with the concept, in a remix you take someone else's story and rewrite it. Those who join get assigned an author to do a remix for, and someone gets assigned to rewrite theirs. The stories are posted anonymously at first, and then the author is revealed a week or so later. Yesterday was the big unmasking.

The lovely and talented sionnain was my remixer. She took my story "Having Writ, Moves On" to rewrite. It's a post-X2 story (but before X3 came out, so it does not match the events in that movie) about Pyro finding out that life as a bad guy with Magneto's team doesn't quite match the grand vision he'd been sold on. You can read the original at http://mo.fandomnation.com/fic/viewstory.php?sid=222.

sionnain took the story and kind of turned it on its head. She made Mystique, a fairly minor character in the original, the force that causes all the action in the revised version. It's very well done and makes for a great ocmpanion piece to the original. Thanks again, sionnain. Read her remix at http://community.livejournal.com/remix_redux/45165.html.

For my remix assignment, I was surprised to get the same author I got last year. She only had one X-Men story and I'd remixed it last year, so I needed to branch out. I wrote a remix of a TPM story of hers, a fandom I read avidly but have never written in. It takes place after Qui-Gon's death and has Obi-wan trying to come to terms with the loss of his master and lover. I rewrote it from the POV of Obi-wan and changed both the focus and the ending. It was a fun exercise and a departure from my usual writing, not only in terms of fandom. My remix is at http://community.livejournal.com/remix_redux/23090.html. Follow the link from there to read the original story.
