[personal profile] lost_spook also suggested I might like to explain what I thought I was doing with Recruit.

Memed from [personal profile] lost_spook:
Pick any story I've written, or, in the case of my longer, chaptered works, any chapter from any story I've written, and comment to this post with that selection. I will then give you the equivalent of 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.

(You can find ones I've done previously under the commentary tag).

[personal profile] aralias asked me for a commentary on this fic:
why this pairing, why this summary, why is it so great? :D

I can deal with the first two questions relatively easily. The third, I think, is one only the reader can answer.

Here goes )

If anyone's following Complications of Glamour, Chapter 7 is now up: { AO3 | Teaspoon }

Pick a paragraph (or any passage less than 500 words) 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.

My shiny new masterlist is here. In case that makes you feel spoilt for choice, this should cut out the underbrush of drabbles and ficlets.

Macbeth!!!

Macbeth, it is probable, was the last-written of the four great tragedies, and immediately preceded Antony and Cleopatra. In that play...

(Obviously, I mean TTR/Storytime! Macbeth).

[Record needle scratch] Oh, that Macbeth.

Fortunately, I don't have to spend a lot of time explaining why it was written. That's a matter of public record.

Much more below the cut... )
