thuviaptarth: golden thuvia with six-legged lion (Default)
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).
