"DVD commentary" meme revival

Because apparently my brain gets most bored when it has the most to be getting done. Or something.

Also because my flist has morphed substantially since the last time I did this one, and I'm actually more hoping some of the folks I've started hanging out with since then will do it themselves (ETA: Or that people who've been around all along will give me a crack at their newer stuff!) than that anyone will actually take me up on it. ;-)

I can't actually find the wording of the original meme, but it's pretty simple: Pick a fic, any fic, of all the fic I've written, and I'll repost it with a "DVD commentary."

scene commentary
May I have two, if I ask for scenes, not whole stories? From your BT fanfiction "Five Time Coreen Fennel Did Not Kiss Henry Fitzroy, and One Time She Did," the time when she's trying to apologize for Vicki taking his blood, and he's praying for them? And an FK scene to be named later (when I'm not at work, and can choose wisely).

I usually don't listen to real DVD commentaries. For me, I think, there's something of a fine line between caring enough to want to hear the commentary, and caring too much to bear hearing the commentary. :-)

Re: scene commentary
So I'll have at least one recent enough to be sure I remember what was going on in my head when I wrote it! :-)

Although it actually surprised me how much came back when I did it for "Color," which I hadn't even read in several years. I think that was the coolest thing about this meme for me.

Re: scene commentary
BTW, you're perfectly welcome to pick a whole story if you like. It just might take a little longer. :-)

Re: scene commentary
Thank you! That's generous. :-) I have not yet been able to make a choice; I want to make a good choice, and the work week is so cluttered. I will perhaps get back to you on Friday night, both with the second scene/story, and with reposting the meme myself, in case you would like to play on the other end. :-)

>"a gooby grinning thing"

I'm glad you like it! It's one of the icons I made for me while fluttering about those for you. (Should I make you a "My Fandom Throws Popcorn" one from the other end of that couch?)

I know that this portion of the scene originated as a practical joke by GWD, not as part of the script, but it is canon. Second season forgets, and third is surprised ever to discover, that Nick has a sense of humor and capacity for play, but first season knows better. This is Nick, too.

Not that I like surprises. I might have kicked him, in her place. :-)

Tempting thought, but I'm not sure how I'd use it.

It is indeed. Angst, schmangst. Give me the 800-year-old eight-year-old any day. ;-D

I probably would have gone with the popcorn just because it was already at hand. And then started pondering revenge.

How about "To Drive the Cold Winter Away"?

Especially because of
"...Nick had used the quilt and the tea and the cheery fire to wrap her in a warmth he could not himself supply,"
and
"Something in her tone, or perhaps in the mind behind it, got Nick's attention."


There's a story, or, rather, a string of wordless vignettes that would really prefer to be a music video or a few pages of a comic book, on the shelf in my imagination, in which, after a wretched night of horrors, each character reaches for the comfort available to him or her. In that scenario, the one I haven't written yet, Natalie doesn't have much within reach, and is scraping up comfort by sheer will, compared to the others.

"To Drive the Cold Winter Away" is the opposite of that. It has bitter along with its sweet, of course, because real FK does not come without some bitterness, but Nick has made Natalie happy, and has made himself happy, and would have tried to make Janette happy, too, if she would have let him. Merry Christmas!

Also, leela_cat once made a comment in passing about all hurt/comfort being necessarily a little twisted, to which I would answer with FK examples like your "To Drive the Cold Winter Away" and Mary Ch.'s "This River."

Done! Or rather, on the to-do list. :-)
