[admin] All is revealed

Okay, folks, it's time to claim your stories, to put your names (and your betas' names) on your work.

Please don't forget to change your remix author: tag (i.e., replace the sockpuppet name with your own in the tag).

Once again, I strongly encourage you to acknowledge your remixer, and also to answer your feedback.

You are now free to post your remixes to your own LJs or wherever else you'd like.

Thanks again for playing.

*wipes brow*

That's all for now, folks.

[admin] Remix/Redux 7: Archive Open for Business

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, may I present to you:

Remix...Redux 7: Do you feel lucky?

The Archive is open. 235 stories in 65 (or so) fandoms from Angel to X-Men, and many more in between.

The best way to navigate the community is via the tag list - you can find the remix of your story by finding your name in the original author list, and you can also navigate by fandom, pairing, and character. (As far as I can tell, everyone who turned in a story has a story; if you can't find yours, please let me know.)

Read. Love. Send feedback, even though the authors will remain anonymous until next Sunday, July 26th. Speculate on who remixed whom. Thank your remixer for taking the time and effort to remix your story.

To track comments on your story, please use the "track comments" feature of LJ, since we've turned off the comment emails on the stories, as they come to the remix address.

If you feel the need to reply ASAP to your feedback, please do so anonymously, or via your sockpuppet LJ. We went through a lot of work to make this anonymous, and I don't want that blown the first day.

Couple small housekeeping items:

+ in the interest of keeping the total number of tags down, so we don't bump up against the 1000-tag limit, we've tried to use only one tag per character and one tag per pairing. Also, I am not familiar enough with Doctor Who or the animanga fandoms to sort those tags out any better, so hopefully they work for you.

+ If you've posted a multipart story - and a number of you have - please make sure you've linked to all parts in each section, and labeled them all correctly in both the body and the subject line, so people can navigate easily.

+ No one but mods and sockpuppets will be granted membership to the community. Please don't try to join.

Thanks, guys! I hope you had fun!

Thank you especially to my fellow mods, who helped shoulder some of the burden this year:

amberlynne, laurificus, mousapelli, and angelgazing.

Thanks and love to all the pinch hitters, for helping out above and beyond the call of duty. I owe you guys, and I appreciate your willingness to help out more than you can ever know. I don't think I've forgotten anyone, but if I have, let me know. I apologize profusely.

ranalore, inksheddings, rynne, meinterrupted, nestra, romanticalgirl, minim_calibre, reddwarfer, penknife, danceswithgary, ignipes, templemarker, tartanshell, mousapelli, and angelgazing.

As you can see, a number of you are getting more than one remix, because, oh happy day, some of the original remixers came through in the end as well. Be happy. *g* I figured nobody'd mind having more fic to read. *g*

And again, remember to acknowledge your remixer ASAP!

Thanks again to slodwick for the amazingly awesome layout, to danceswithgary, ranalore, and lady_ganesh for making icons, to soundingsea for the signup form, and to dracofiend for providing the matching algorithm.

Let us know if there are any glitches or thingies not working right, either here or via email at remixredux [at] gmail [dot] com.

Have fun and thank you all for participating.

I am going to take a nap now.

Ben of the Tundra (the If Beowulf Were Raised by Wolves Remix) [due South, PG, Fraser/Kowalski]

Title: Ben of the Tundra (The If Beowulf Were Raised by Wolves Remix)
Author: kinetikatrue
Summary: On the snow-snug tundra, the wolves still tell the tale of Tundra-Ben.
Rating: PG
Pairing: Fraser/Kowalski, Mackenzie/Vecchio
Fandom: due South
Original story: Ben of the Tundra by elementalv
Notes: Thanks to Farley Mowat for writing about wolves and the wilds of Canada in such a way as to make the young kinetikatrue fall in love with them. And to two semesters of Old English/Beowulf for giving me the language and the cadences. And to sansets for pointing out when the language had overwhelmed the story, as well as the need to make the frame more explicit; everything I write these days is better for having her input, but all remaining errors of grammar, style or spelling are still my own. Also, thanks to everybody who thought I could do this, even when it didn't seem like the words would ever come.
