DVD Commentary Meme & Little Mermaid News - moonspinner
DVD Commentary Meme & Little Mermaid News
Pick any passage of 500 words or less from any fanfic I've written, and comment to this post with that selection. I will then give you a DVD commentary on that snippet: what I was thinking when I wrote it, why I wrote it in the first place, what's going on in the character's heads, why I chose certain words, what this moment means in the context of the rest of the fic, lots of awful puns, and anything else that you'd expect to find on a DVD commentary track.

In other news, the director of Pride and Prejudice and Atonement is making a live-action version of the Little Mermaid. And, just in case you're not sure, that's the original story not the Disneyfied atrocity. I wonder if he'll cast Keira Knightley as the title character?

Oh lord! What a depressing story...that'll be right up Keira's alley. ^_-

hE HE. I'd prefer it way more than the Disney version which rubbed me all the wrong ways. I might post a rant about it some day.

Fic - Absolution: He gives her a withering look and she flinches. “OK, I have no idea what I’m talking about. But I worked with some refugees when I was a child. I don’t know how you feel but I know that your life hasn’t ended because you lost your arm!”

“It’s not only my arm I’ve lost,” he hisses through clenched teeth. “I’ve lost…” Words fail him.

What hasn’t he lost?

She has come to sit beside him. She reaches for him and he pulls away. Her hand falls to her side, but there is determination beneath the softness of her voice. “Please tell me, Ani.”

He doesn’t correct her use of the childish moniker. He has never felt so small, so in need for comfort, for rescue. Not even as a child.

“When I fought Dooku, I felt the Darkness within him. It was so strong. So powerful.” Even now, he can still see the shadows creeping at the edges of his sight. “It was exactly the same darkness I felt the night I killed the Tuskens. The night I massacred them!”

I was wondering why you wrote this, and what was going through your head. This part of the fic was very moving for me. It was heartbreaking, and hard to shake off. I appreciated how you showed Anakin reacting realistically to the trauma he's been through - a lot of fanfic authors don't do that (but they should).

A live version of The Little Mermaid sounds fascinating. I'd love to see the live version of the original. The original was so poetic, beautiful and sad.

What did you dislike about the Disney version?

Hi hon! Just realized that I never got round to responding to this. I promise, pinky swear, that I'm right on it. *hugs*
