“Friends with the Monster” (the Same Old Flame Remix)

aadler

Okay: as happened with sroni, the story I meant to tell for this remix turned into something else. As happened with sroni, I had a choice between posting what I had — which would have met the requirements, but not been as good — or following out the new themes that had opened out for me. So, as sroni chose to do, I’m posting an intro to the (suddenly) larger story while I work out the rest.

Apologies for not having the entire thing ready by the deadline, but I really want to follow out the possibilities that made themselves known to me. Hope that isn’t entirely unacceptable.

Remixer's Note: I've remixed sroni's stories far more often than anyone else's at this point--I hope she views that as a *good* thing. ;-)

Original story: “As Moonlight Unto Sunlight” by aadler

Explanation: I am posting this story in parts because this month has been a crazy, crazy month and I’ve dislocated my shoulder twice in nine days, with the second one being yesterday. I will do this story quickly, but it just wasn’t ready in time to post completely today. I talked to aadler, and didn’t make the decision on my own. I could have posted what I’ve written so far and had a complete story that I’d be (mostly) satisfied with, but it’s not the story I wanted to tell yet. But it will be. Oh, how it will be.

Posting day for Round 7!

Time to post for this year’s round (except [DW]deird1 and [DW]dragonyphoenix already got theirs in: different time-zone thing, I would expect). Follow the procedure listed here, and let’s see what we get!


Story posting procedure (and minor schedule change)
ChainGiles
aadler

It’s nearing time to post for this year’s CoF round. The original schedule put August 31st as the posting day, but it was just pointed out to me that we’re coming up on the Labor Day weekend.

As a gesture of magnanimity and fellow-feeling (and besides, who CAN’T use a few extra days?), I’m moving posting to September 5th. Enjoy the additional time, and have an enjoyable kinda-holiday.

Our preferred method of posting is outlined below.

On the date assigned for posting (now September 5), each participating author should:

1. post his/her story on his/her own story/blog site, then
2. post a notice on cof_remix or Circle_of_Friends, with a link to the story.

The story post on your site should begin with, “Round 7 of the Circle of Friends Remix is now open for reading at [cof_remix / Circle_of_Friends, whichever].”

The post at either (or both) of the Circle of Friends sites should be in the following format.



Title: Story Title (the Clever Subtitle Remix)*
Author: [yourself]
Fandom: Name of fandom
Rating: Rating of story [example: PG (language)]
Disclaimer: Characters from Buffy the Vampire Slayer are property of Joss Whedon, Mutant Enemy, Kuzui Enterprises, Sandollar Television, the WB, and UPN. [Or, if a different fandom, the appropriate disclaimer]
Original story:Original Story” [with hyperlink] by OriginalAuthor [LJ/DW identity, if possible]

“Story Title (the Clever Subtitle Remix)” )
[hyperlink back to your own story post]


*For the benefit of anyone less familiar with the remix genre, here are some examples: “Walking After Midnight (the Music of Pain Remix)”, “Tenth Nocturne (the Kiss Kiss Bang Bang Remix)”; “Fix (Power Corrupts Remix)”; “Lit Up (Find a Map and Draw a Straight Line Remix)”. These are actual titles at Remix Redux.

Looking forward to seeing the entries!

Original story: “Vigil” by eilandesq
Notes: aadler is still working on his remix, so this is by no means to replace that; I checked with him to find out if he’d like me to do a pinch hit for until he finishes it, and he agreed. And then my mom arrived in Ireland and I proceeded to get sick as a dog, so I haven’t had a chance to work on it until today. So, Eiland, I hope you like your pinch hit, and I can’t wait to read Aadler’s real story for you!

On top of unplanned auto repairs, personal health issues, and an abruptly turbulent work schedule (one of my supervisors gave birth rather earlier than intended), my remix story suddenly decided to grow on me. I recognize that this is bad behavior — and I would not welcome it in any remix participant, much less the founder and mod of the remix — but the story will take at least another day, maybe a few more.

Blame me — I’ve earned it — but the story WILL come. It’s just raising a ruckus along the way.
