yes i am up too late and bored

Pick a paragraph (or any passage less than 500 words) from any fanfic I've written, and comment to this post with that selection [Note: Please include the title/fandom]. I will then give you a DVD commentary on that snippet: what I was thinking when I wrote it, why I wrote it in the first place, what's going on in the character's heads, why I chose certain words, what this moment means in the context of the rest of the fic, lots of awful puns, and anything else that you'd expect to find on a DVD commentary track.

There probably won't be puns. Just warning you.

Just so this entry isn't a complete waste of space: [personal profile] dhobikikutti put together [community profile] dark_agenda to serve as a resource for improving racial and ethnic diversity in [ profile] yuletide fandoms. Right now there are lists of fandoms created by people of color and people from non-Western countries, a post for beta/culture-picking betas, and discussions of some of the common pitfalls in writing about people of color and non-Western people/cultures (I was going to say for white people, but I think these are issues for all people writing about cultures that aren't their own, particularly when most of the information they get is from mass media/biased sources).

In the beginning was the word

The language of angels has no words for cock or cunt. The word for body means encumbrance and the word for sex means sin. The word for the bodies of humans or demons means meat, and is especially rude; it is the same thing, in that tongue, to fuck or to eat or to shit, all things that angels claim that they do not do.

Once upon a time there was a boy who loved his sister very much. Every night he dreamed of how much he loved her and how much he hated her; every night in his dreams he fucked her and wanted to fuck her, killed her and wanted to kill her. Every night in his dreams she killed him, over and over and over again. Sometimes she killed him because he was a monster, but sometimes--most of the time--he was a girl, a strong and clever girl, and she was the monster, who was stronger and more clever yet.

He dreamed the words for please and love and mother in languages no one had spoken for a thousand years, and he dreamed of cities and forests and continents whose names no one had remembered for thousands more. He dreamed what I told him, Melaka Fray, and he dreams what I tell him now: He dreams of powers born outside of time, who ruled this plane once and will rule it again; he dreams of beasts who can swallow the sun and witches who can crack open the earth and gods who can bring back the every-time no-time eternal everywhere that will kill every human being in this world and every human being in many more. He dreams of your blood, Melaka Fray, your mouth, your skin, your cunt, your kiss; he dreams of loving you and killing you and making you the dark queen who shares his throne.
