This is something I swore up and down to [livejournal.com profile] throughadoor I would never let her talk me into. But hey, the curtain's drawn back on everything, including celebrity. it's been a year since we posted the cult of Timberlake story, and I guess that's as good a time as any to talk about it some more.

Which is to say, kel talked me into:

Flesh Mechanic: Not an AU - Member Commentary.


Really, this is much less interesting than it could be. I mean, this thing has been talked to death. but there's nothing like flogging an already corpsified horse. Especially if his name is J. Timberlake.

I don't care what y'all say -- that story is damn scary. Largely because reality insists on following its lines, and because when you both start saying "It's TIME" it's undeniably creepy. *g*

That was an excellent damn commentary, though. I whipped through it like it was paper.

if we'd have known that reality was going to follow the lines of the story so closely, i would have been a lot more specific. i have axes to grind!

just sayin'.

I tend to prefer stories where the negative space, the things around the text, hovering between words but never said, are what's important.

I didn't think I could love this story any more, but not only does it improve with every reading, your commentary added yet another dimension (esp. the murder weapon :-)

Thanks for an incredible commentary!!!

The murder weapon was one of those incredibly huge regrets we had about not being able to include it. He stole the VMA from Chris's house! it cracks me up. But yeah. and, seriously, thanks for reading it - I swear, I thought everyone would be sick of this story by now.

fuck me. I love this story. I enjoyed reading the commentary in a way that probably makes me a not so sane person, so thank you.

Thank you thank you for the commentary. (Now I feel guilty for not sending feedback when the story was new, and I have even rec'ced it in my page!) I found so much more now than my readings before. Somehow the scalping fact totally escaped me before. Well, for some theories, a man can't imagine anything that he/she could not handle. (like those children's stories where people are eaten alive and evil stepmothers were killed by making them dance in burning charcoal with iron shoes on and the children are, like, whatever, next story, please!) I love the fic. sometimes I want to stomp my feet and yell "That's so unfair!", when Chris kind of knows that this is not going to end well and when it's said in the profiler report that the first murder occurred possibly after the victim showed fear or repulsion toward the future murderer's violence. I also love the ending. The reader can, and will, choose the end the she feels most comfortable with. If the reader feels uncomfortable without the closure, she can choose one to the end. If the reader is seeking different kind of thrills, she can choose something other.

mmm, that's a really nice way of putting it, and exactly what we were going for, i think. thanks so much for thoughts!

I hope that it is okay that I wrote you. I found your name by searching interests. I just started writing my journal. I am taking poetry writing class at the university. I read "Tonight I Can Write..." I really like it and I write a letter to my friend I am always thinking about. This poem is about what I did last month... I was so surprised to read this poem. Now I am looking for someone who read my journal because I have no one who could response to my journal. I would like to write about all of my stay in the USA. But now I’ve been so busy. But later, I will write a lot. I like poem and music! I want to let you know a lot of poems and music I like!!
I would like to know what American or everyone beyond the national borders think about what happened to me and what I think about the American people and my friend. I would be appreciated if you could read mine and respond to it sometimes.
