The Remix Redux 11: The Eleventh Hour archive went live last night! You can find the main collection here
, and the Remix Madness collection here
. I love this challenge for its mix of fandoms--you never know what people will pull up to work on.
I was excited to get two of my stories remixed, one as part of the main challenge, one as part of the madness:Cracks in a Heart of Stone (the Alex Remix)

Alex believes in surviving and taking care of herself, but sometimes she just can't avoid being drawn in.
This is a remix of a sick!Neal story I wrote in 2011, and it gives Alex's POV on the proceedings. I'm thrilled, because I love Alex, and I stuck her in the story with the vague sense that she fit the role she had to play best, but without fleshing out her motivation or actions. This fic does all of that, while giving an excellent, tough, slightly jaded, but still engaged Alex voice.Flipped Switch

This is a remix of a Sherlock/Mary fuck-or-die fic I wrote just a few months ago, and I'm tickled to death someone remixed it, with its odd pairing and off-putting scenario. I wrote the fic for a 24-hour turnaround challenge, and in consequence it lacks a lot of detail. The remix fixes all that, plus provides Mary's POV on things. The characterization of Mary, as a badass, brilliant operative, is fantastic, and the dub-con is very hot (if you like that kind of thing, which I do).
So, yeah, go read them!
I also wrote two fics for the challenge, one my assignment and one a pinch-hit. Both are, I think, immediately obvious as mine if you're thinking about it. If anyone is reading in the collection and has a (correct) guess about them, I will write you something fannish of your choosing after the reveals (fic, meta, recs, playlist, etc.). Hint: both are in fandoms I've written in before.
