DVD Commentary Challenge

DVD Fic Commentary
Posting Access:
Anybody , Moderated
The Multifandom DVD Commentary Challenge!

The 2009 challenge is open through October 1!

Moderators: seperis and general_jinjur

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. This as fun, not trauma.

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

5.) The minimum is one commentary. No upper limit, however. Do as many as you like, in as many fandoms as you like.

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

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

Okay! You're done! Choose your story, sign up, and go at it!


August 1, 2009 through October 1, 2009, 11:59 CST


Sign up here with your name and the story and author you want to commentary. You can sign up more than once.


Sign up here if you are an author who's fine with your story being commentaried. I have no idea if that is an actual word, no. Just roll with it.


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.
