I decided the last day was a free-for-all without ever actually checking the calendar, so made up a wee l'il graphics post.  Thanks to everyone who put up cool stuff this year!  I'm still going back and checking out the entries this year.  It's so great to be a part of a fandom this persistent.

One of the first things I thought of in signing up for Love Month this year was that it could motivate me to finally update one of my long-languishing WIPs.  Which I did!  And I'm hopeful (knock on wood) that this will give me the push I need to maybe finish one or all of them.

Since today went unclaimed, here's something I made a while back, which some of you may have already seen.  A trailer for Season Three - enjoy!

The first fic I ever wrote was a long WIP about Delenn's transformation, meant to span the length of Season Two.  At some point almost two years ago, I was tempted away by many, many different plot bunnies and never came back.  One of my writing goals this year was to finish my languishing WIPs, and so here is the next installment of "Metamorphoses."

Title: Lacunae

Specs: Babylon 5, John/Delenn, 11000 words

Warning: if making fun of B5 in any way is not your cup of tea, then this is probably not the meta for you.  ;)

Screencap Review of The Gathering - Part I
Screencap Review of The Gathering - Part II

Title: The Bloody Ones
Rating: R for language and graphic violence.
Status: WIP.  First six chapters posted.  (If you are wary of WIPs, I plan to have the whole piece finished by the end of the month; I promise it will not languish in uncompleted sadness.)

Summary: The Minbari tell a fable about a dark race of butchers who live in the dead of space.  They sneak into civilized places to hunt and kill.  A cautionary story for children.

Most of the time when we analyze an episode of television, we keep ourselves confined to the text - what was actually said, actually done.  But there is a wealth of information just below the surface, or hiding between the lines.  Subtext.  It can be one of the more difficult things to write, especially when it comes to film; you don't have the luxury of just writing what the characters are thinking that might be contrary to what they're saying.  A lot of it comes down to the actors and director interpreting the text, making it richer.

I have chosen a particularly meaty scene to try and explore what the subtext might have been.  This is only one possible look, of course; that's one of the great things about subtext.  Because it's implicit and not explicit, it lends itself to different interpretations, no single one objectively correct (especially if you're like me and don't mind ignoring authorial intent).  One of the things I like in this scene is that besides the subtext hiding behind the main focus of the scene, there is also a character without any lines at all who conveys a remarkable amount of information in a single shot.

You've already heard what they said. Now listen to what they're really saying.
