Another short chapter, so we'll do this one in complete form. As the original comments at Kansas no longer exist, and I hav eno extant notes from that period, I'm going to comment blind, going on immediate impressions, since I haven't read this piece in a few years, and have forgotten much of it.

And there you have it. It took me two years to get back to this, and with any luck, I'll start taking some time out to continue with the rest of the series. As stated before, I don't plan on doing a line by line, blow-by-blow account of the later episodes, as some of them get fairly lengthy, IIRC. However, as this is being inspired by SabaceanBabe's own recent interest in the 2008 (Fanfic) DVD Commentary Community here on LJ, I figured it might be nice to see if I still have any ideas in my head about how I'd proceed if I did take part in that.

See you again soon.

He hoped.

Okay, I apologize to everyone for not starting this sooner. So, for our first dissertation on the fine prose fiction of Our Lady of Wild Plot Bunnies, I bring you a careful analysis of the first part of what is undoubtedly my absolute all time favourite pieces of fanfic: Left Behind

Within this cut you will find the inspiring prose of an author with a truly masterful grasp of their craft... talking trash about the work of another author who ain't too shabby either ;)Collapse )

For those who wish to take up the torch and write their own reviews, a good place to start would be here. I'm looking forward to it. I hope you have enjoyed this first installment, and promise not to be as dry in future installments. Thank you for reading.

This will serve as the official friendly introductory post to the wonderful world of SabaceanBabe media appreciation.

We will be discussing (i.e. gushing over and/or critiquing) the science fiction television fandom-oriented creations sabaceanbabe. If you don't know who that is, or why you should care, may we suggest you go here or here.

sabaceanbabe is not a professional writer or film editor. The works she creates are for her amusement and our enjoyment. Entries will be added for discussion as they become available. The woman almost never stops creating new things. This promises to be a fairly lively community.

This community serves a two-fold function: it enables SabaceanBabe to maintain a place where her works can be treated purely for entertainment value, and so she can use her personal journal more freely as a personal forum if she so wishes. As well, it gives the rest of us a chance to get really fannish about her work in a place where she can't get quite as self-conscious about it, because it's not her personal journal.

If you wish to join in on the madness, we ask that you apply for membership, so we can keep the anonymous troll behaviour to a minimum. Long standing friends of Sabaceanbabe will be granted posting priviledges in short order. Feel free to join in and comment on the work, and remember, SabaceanBabe is watching. ;)


This place is for appreciation. Criticism is welcome, but we prefer our flavour of criticism to be polite and constructive. We may allow you to shoot from the hip, but if you get impolite, don't be surprised to have your posts screened and your account gagged or banned. We are all friends here, and want this to be a friendly place.

As such, it's a benign dictatorship. There is fairness in this world, but don't mistake our kindness for weakness. This is your only warning.

That said, please feel free to post in this thread if you wish to introduce yourself (all the better to help us determine if you're a real girl or boy, or just another troll in sheep's clothing) or have some suggestions for the community.

And welcome!
