The fic I wrote was :

Title: Wild flowers (Root Cutting Remix)
Fandom: Harry Potter
Characters/Pairings: Neville, Augusta, OC
Summary: Flowers bloom, and children grow up.
Title, Author and URL of original story: Summer Roses by [livejournal.com profile] msmoocow
Notes: Much love to [livejournal.com profile] redcandle17 for the emergency beta work ♥

( Faked cut )


The fic I picked was very charming and lovely, developing an OC along with Neville. As a first experience at remixing this was interesting. I'm not sure I was re-appropriated the story enough although I did a couple of twist. I definitely liked having an occasion to write about Neville, who is a darling and whom I'd never written about before.

Resolution : I'm never participating to a fic exchange ever again. That way lies failure and self-loathing.




That said, [livejournal.com profile] remixredux08 is pretty. I'm terribly in love with the fic remixed out of my fic :

Mirror Cipher (the All Other Angle call-response)
Fandom: Harry Potter
Characters: Sybill, Dean, Dennis, Blaise, Draco, Molly, Lucius, Voldemort, Bellatrix
My original fic: Mirror

My own fic was about Narcissa, written very shortly after HBP's release, and a little bit of a rant about the (mis)characterization of Narcissa one could see in fandom as well as my own spin onto the myth of Narcissus and my fascination for mirror metaphores.
The remixer took the theme of identity, of identities built in the eyes of others and how we see others' idententities, and the motif of reflections, and ran away with it, spinning a beautiful mosaic of different characters echoing each others (and Narcissa) in a complex, multilayered and rather dark contemplation. The way the images, the voices and the theme are interwoven is nothing short of brillant. Worth reading, and re-reading. I also loved how she-or-he used artistic metaphores like negative space and photography

My own ending was a question. The remix is even more nihilistic, denying the core over and again. The camera only goes skin deep and there is no life here, only its static representation

Can't wait for the reveal to see who's writer this is and what else they've written.




Other Remix rec out of what I've seen so far :

By Any Other Name (The Fool's Paradise Remix)
Fandom: X-Men Movie
Characters: Mystique, Pyro, Magneto
Summary: If ye should lead her in a fool's paradise, as they say, it were a very gross kind of behaviour.
This fic takes Mystique after XM3 and... blows us with her. The writing is gorgeous and Mystique is awesome.

Goldfish Bowl (Glasshouse remix)
Fandom: X-Men Movie
Characters/Pairings: Bobby/Rogue, John, Logan
Summary: It's hard being normal in the goldfish bowl.
Not the kind of fic I often read, even when I read XMM (which is pretty rare in the first place ^^) but the characterisation and good writing really made this fic stood out.

How Long, Baby (Extended Dance Remix)
Fandom: Highlander
Character: Methos
Summary: In the beginning was the word. Then came the song.
The original was pretty cool in the first place, but I love the way the remix impart music into it. There's a love of words and rhythm both interwoven lovingly and beautifully; and through it Methos' voice stands out so clearly. Very nice.

Desert Time (Ordinary Time remix)
Fandom: Star Wars
Characters: Obi-Wan, Qui-Gon, Luke
Summary: In his years on Tatooine, Obi-Wan finds he has a lot to learn.
A remix of [livejournal.com profile] imadra_blue's work, whose fics I adore, and this fic is definitly of an equal level. Luminescent writing, with an understated sense of pain and yet growing hope.

I've signed up for the Remix Redux, something I've always wanted to do! I find the concept fascinating in a meta way. I think I was already eligible last year (if barely), but I had too much things to do at that time of the year. I'm excited! I hope I'll get something fun to remix, so many possibilities ♥

Who else is doing it? *looks around hopefully*
