Bell Curve by Rageprufrock, commentary by inkscribe

Author: rageprufrock
Fandom: Stargate Atlantis
DVD Commentator: inkscribe

Commentator Notes: The original story is just shy of novel-length, so the commentary version is likewise enormous. All comments are in bold. For various reasons, all textual formatting had to be re-coded by hand; any errors or discrepancies between the original and my comment-marked version are entirely my own fault.

Because of the length of this piece, I have broken it into eight sections, more-or-less based on a combination of single-LJ-post-length restrictions and an attempt at retaining conceptual sense by each break.

Enjoy! :-)

Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3 | Part 4 | Part 5 | Part 6 | Part 7 | Part 8

final stretch!

there are thirty hours left.

that's still enough time to post!

that's still enough time to claim another story, as long as you don't pick an epic!

that's enough time *even* if you picked two long fics and had them both half done and your computer self-destructed last week! and you are therefore just now restarting them on your shiny new machine because you lost the files. (in case that happened to anyone else.)(current motto: sleep is for chumps.)

bravo to everyone who has already posted, and to everyone who is still working, and to everyone reading the fantastic commentaries that are up.

good luck to everyone. including me. heh.

apparently i seem to think that the essence of cheerleading is overuse of the exclamation mark. apologies.
b&w me

Author's Warnings: Contains material that some may find disturbing and/or triggering.

Commenter's Notes: This is a seriously late birthday present. Grace loves DVD commentary on her fic and I'd planned to do one but time got away from me. Then this challenge came along and also, she wrote this story for mcshep_match and I loved it so much that I had thinky thoughts. About the formatting, I prefer to do the blockquote method simply because I find it hard to read chunks of bolded or italicized texts.
