2009 DVD Commentary Challenge

general_jinjur and I would like to welcome everyone to the 2009 DVD Commentary Challenge.

Your missions, should you choose to accept it, is to pick another author's story and write a DVD commentary on it. Cutting and pasting the rules, since really, why reinvent the wheel?


The Multifandom DVD Commentary Challenge!

The rules are slightly different from the normal DVD commentary. This is a commentary on another author's work.

The Rules

1.) Any fandom and any pairing or lack of pairing thereof is welcome.

2.) More than one person can do a DVD commentary on the same story.

3.) You must have author permission. I want this as fun, not as trauma. You can call a story first if you're worried about getting it before someone else does, but permission is a must for the challenge.

4.) Deadline for submissions is 10/1/2009, 11:59 PM CST. There is no deadline for sign-up.

5.) There is no limit on the number of commentaries you can do.

6.) All commentaries are hosted at (or at least linked to), dvd_commentary. I'd prefer posting directly to the community. If you want to post it to your lj as well, I only ask you wait until 10/7/2009 to give it a minimum of a week up at the comm.

7.) You can post your commentaries to the community as soon as you wish.

The Community
dvd_commentary is where the magic is posted.

List of Claimed Stories

Author Permission Sign-Ups - this is for authors who wish to give sweeping permission for commentary on their stories. general_jinjur has implemented googleforms for signups so hey, experimental! Please fill out all relevant fields.

List of Participating Authors


All commentaries, or links to commentaries, should be posted to dvd_commentary. Please use the standard header in the body:


For the subject line of the post:

Title by author, commentary by {your name here}.

Ratings, warnings, and summaries are optional. If the commentary is taking more than one entry, remember to link them. Have fun. And trust me, these are serious fun. For examples of different styles of DVD commentaries, check out the community and browse to your heart's content.

Any questions? Ask away!

Have a great time!
