To regurgitate from this post
: What is a remix?
A remix fic is a story that spins off another story, not simply by premise or universe or concept but by actual plot, dialogue, and scenes.REMIX RULES
- Respect the original story. Everything else is a go.
- The ending, plotline, pairing, and setting cannot be changed.
- Different angles, however, are encouraged: you can write from a different POV, maybe remix the fic so that a background character or pairing is the protagonist/focus instead (while the main plotline/pairing goes on in the background), zoom in on a subplot or pan out to an over-arching plot, focus on a certain time frame within the original fic, etc. Anything is acceptable as long as it doesn't contradict or change the original story.
- Style does not matter! Don't feel the need to emulate the other person's style; this is your fic now.
- Missing scenes are also okay, but no parallel universes. Missing scenes can take place within the original story, or in a prequel or sequel.
- Any Pokémon fic ever written is eligible. It doesn't matter where it was posted—LJ, FFN, anywhere. Don't remix your own fic, though—that'd be weird.
- Please ask the author's permission before you remix their fic! Feel free to link them to this post to help explain what's going on if you'd like.
- A remix isn't exactly a sequel or a prequel, although it may read like one; it's more an expansion of the original piece. If you need more guidance, check out the remixes posted here. You won't recognize the characters and that's okay—what's important is seeing how each author's remix fits into the source fic.
Hopefully the original post answered all your questions. If you have any more, feel free to leave them here!
