I created the Fanmix "All the Wrong Turns" for Bandom Reverse Big bang and was lucky enough to get the really incredible story The Stumbles and Falls by [personal profile] fifteendozentimes.

Paul didn't know the mix was mine when he claimed it, but a month or so after claims I gave in and came out to him as his mixer, and I've loved getting the chance to watch his creative process. It's a really great story--it hits the emotional tenor of the mix squarely and does the thing that I love the most about his Jon fic--it's a deeply empathetic view of someone who makes a series of bad choices and refuses to talk about them and in doing so screws himself over even more. And then gets a happy ending anyway.

(Plus bonus Ian/Shane--how could I resist THAT?) (Never let it be said that [personal profile] fifteendozentimes doesn't know how to target a story to his audience.)

I'm so grateful to the BRBB mods for the hard work they put in--this challenge was run so well. Their organization has knocked my socks off.
