Remix is go, and also YAY

The remixredux08 archive is now open, and I even though I've barely read anything yet I can already tell there's going to be lots of great stories.

My assigned remixer chose the SGA genderfuck story Sheppard's Choice, which I'd been secretly hoping for. The result is Sheppard's Choice (Theory of the Male Gaze remix), and it's awesome. All the themes are there, but this time from Rodney's point of view, and with a clever sting in the tail. *happysigh* You rock sekrit remixer; I wish I was better at feedback so I could express how much.

As for the story I wrote... I am kind of crazy in love with it, and thankfully the author I was assigned also seems happy with it. \o/ That's such a relief. I suspect it's not going to be a popular story, and I honestly don't care. It's brought me a lot of joy. *clutches story to chest and squishes it*

There's been some great discussion in the Debrief Post as well. Positive, negative, and various shades of meta in between, including an interesting thread on the difficulty of leaving comments for remixes. With that in mind, I'm going to try and leave more comments this year. I'm also hoping people revisit the Debrief Post once they've read the remixes, and that some interesting discussion arises from that part of the process too.

All in all, I'm calling this year a giant win!

And now I'm going to mooch around and eat crackers and read a few stories, because I think I'm coming down with a cold and comfort reading is about all I can manage. *curls up pathetically*
