dvd commentary
children of dune - leto 1
Okay, I have totally depressed myself by re-reading my own freaking fic. The Spiderman/Smallville crossover one. Okay, the thought that lingers is, who the hell let me write that? Everyone is *miserable*. I mean, when not fucking. And I thought this was a *good idea*?

I keep having to stop and apologize to Peter for, you know, killing *his wife*. And Clark and Lex for making them so utterly depressed. Everyone in there should be on *medication*.


So, low stress. If I were to do a DVD commentary on a fic, any in particular you'd be interested in reading? I've done--er, two? I'm not terribly good at it, mostly because the structure eludes me. But hey! I can try! None of the WiPs, since I never know where I am in those until I'm there. But you know, any of the others? Will try.

Spiderman/Smallville x-over...

I'm the queen of denial when it comes to the boys.

I didn't like this story because of that. But not just that.

You write so beautifully, but I couldn't get behind Peter/Lex. I just couldn't believe it. Where was Harry Osborne to comfort fuc, er, comfort him again? I tried reading the sex scenes but had to skip over.

Goodness, it's been so long since I read it but I just remember not wanting to read it again. Probably just denial. But why didn't the boys work things out this time? Why didn't time with Peter soothe either Lex or Peter?

Maybe it was the ending that left me so frustrated. Nothing was resolved. Hell, it ended up even worse than before. Frustration. Like Gone with the wind. Lex and Clark are kinda like Scarlett and Rhett. Lex always running after Clarklett and Clarklett running after Blanaie. Always hurting each other but secretly in love. (But Blanie a nasty insert curse word(s)of your choice here!)

But that lack of ANY hope at the end. Like Hamlet but with living death.

Ugh, what the hell do I mean? Please don't be offended. Why am I picking on poor Jenn? Don't provoke the givers of the porneth!

When I think about Handful of Dust I didn't feel dissatisfied like in this fic. No matter how gruesome it got.

Still making no sense?

Nothing to see here, move along people....

Re: Spiderman/Smallville x-over...


No, it's--you're right. That's why it hurts me still. I just wrote this thing where Peter had his best firend and his wife both dead and Lex and Clark at hard stalemate.

However, Lex was forced to realize that Clark and Superman were the same person. And Clark had to realize that he could lose Lex before they could reconcile. Which is bad.

Eventually, they do come together. This entire thing is almost a prequel to a story I will never write, in *why* they are able to get past their differences and come together.

Yes, little consolation.

*sighs* It's a freakishly depressing story.
