Remix Madness is indeed madness; I apparently turned out a total of 6200 words between the two challenges, almost all of it written over the past few days. Mostly fandoms I haven't touched before, too, so yay new horizons!

As for things I can link too... you guys. I made out like a bandit this year. I already linked my main remix, but I also got three out of Madness, what even. They are:

To Adorn You In My Finest [The Friend is a Four-Letter Word Remix]. It redoes To Adorn You In My Finest (Merlin, Gwen/Morgana) with the girls in high school, and adds these wonderful ideas about Gwen's past failed romances and is just lovely. And also, y'know, now it's really hot.

I Regret Nothing [The Colonel Mustard in the Solarium with the Wind-Up Victrola Remix], which is a remix of With Thanks To Apollo (Inception, about Ariadne). It's one of the eerie, wonderfully disquieting pieces that's kind of a hallmark of this fandom, and it takes one of the more lighthearted details of the original story and turns it into something much darker, which makes it a perfect example of what's cool about remix fics.

Postcards from Naxos (You Don't Have to Go Home, But You Can't Stay Here), which is also a remix of With Thanks to Apollo, but very different from the above. You know how there was one it in that story about pictures on Ariadne's phone? The mystery author went through and explained the source of each and every one, and a few others, and created something that's half wonderfully happy fic about Ariadne bonding with the team (and apparently I friend-ship Arthur and Eames and Ariadne and Yusuf like burning, the more you know) and half heartbreaking story about leaving her family, and the whole thing still manages to be a wonderfully coherent whole. And it is also wonderfully clear that Ariadne is a badass who belongs in dreaming, which is fantastic to see.
