Comeback Commentary [Dec. 29th, 2009|09:42 am]

[Tags|, ]

I really love the idea behind this asylum and I'm sad it isn't as active as I'd hoped, so I've decided to put my money where my mouth is and post a commentary for my fic Comeback, written for the [info]qaf_challenges Friends and Lovers Challenge.

I hope all of you will consider posting commentaries too. They don't have to be this long - I just got wordy!

What Can Compare [Jun. 20th, 2009|10:56 am]

[Tags|, ]

[info]_alicesprings pimped this asylum because it's been pretty quiet, so I figured I'd make some noise :)

The fic I'm going to give some commentary on is What Can Compare, a short little ficlet of just 286 words. The link takes you to the original posting with comments, but since the fic is so short I'm also including the full text below the cut. Be warned, just because it's a short ficlet doesn't mean the commentary is short :P

What Can Compare and commentary this way! )

Look What I Found! [Apr. 26th, 2009|10:53 am]

I had kinda forgotten I created this asylum. Does anyone want to make use of it? I'd love to see some fic commentary posted!

Sign-Ups and Suggestions. [Aug. 24th, 2008|01:24 pm]

Okay, so it looks like I will go ahead and get this asylum off the ground!

If you're a writer who is interested in taking part, please leave a comment.

If you're a reader and have suggestions for fics you'd like to see "commentaried", please also leave a comment.

As far as posts go, what would you like to see? I can organise a schedule, such as one fic per month, which gives writers a deadline to work towards. Or should it just be open to postings as often as writers feel the urge?

Any other thoughts?

ETA: I hope writers out there aren't discouraged from taking part because they think their fic mght not be "important enough".

The fic doesn't have to be particularly long or particularly well-known - a fandom classic, so to speak. But of course those would be wonderful.

The idea is just to see how the writing process differs from person to person, and to shed some light on the fic. See if the way you see things is the same way the writer intended, etc. Please don't be intimidated!

Just an Idea. [Aug. 23rd, 2008|03:51 pm]

So, I was inspired by Julad's DVD commentary of her fic The Importance of Being Brian, HERE, and thought I'd make this community for authors to share their thoughts on their fics.

I'm not entirely sure how it's going to work, or even if there's any interest, so speak up and share your ideas!

As you can see from the example linked to above, the idea is for an author (and their beta if so inclined) to do a "DVD commentary" for one of their fics. It wouldn't have to be quite so detailed as the one above, (although that was awesome!) but should offer some insight into the fic and why the author wrote it the way they wrote it.

Obviously, an author has to be willing to take part, so I guess there should be a sign-up post. But I also think people should be able to have a say in which fics they want to see "commentaried" so maybe there should be a suggestion post too?

Any other thoughts? Please share them!
