Dramione Remix ([livejournal.com profile] dramione_remix) recently wrapped up, with roughly forty entries. The idea behind the remix was that "participants will choose from a list of famous couples throughout history, mythology, literature, folklore, legend, etc. Then they will remix the original couples' story, choosing whatever elements of the original story that they find inspiring to create a brand new Dramione fic or piece of art!"

I decided to do a list of my personal favorites, as there were a staggering number of entries, particularly long ones. There's a lot of the following on this list:

1) Gender role-reversal of the couple
2) Reinterpretation of the story or interpretation of concept/theme, rather than a straight re-telling

Top Three Four Favorites

Constrictor (5,560 words) | Teen | by Riptey (on LJ)
Couple: Othello/Desdemona (Othello)
Summary: Draco isn’t really that bad of a person--not anymore, that is--but try telling him that. It’s going to take a lot of convincing.
Notes: SO GOOD. SO GOOD. OH CUPCAKES. SO GOOD. TALKING SNAKES. FABLES. READ NOW.

Not-Astronomy-Class (5,917 words) | Teen | by Elyaeru (on LJ)
Couple: Flynn/Rapunzel (Rapunzel)
Summary: It was either have pointy things sticking into his bum all evening or talk to a drunk Hermione Granger. He chose the latter.
Notes: I freakin' adored this twist on magical hair. :D

Perish the Universe (31,389 words) | Mature | by Dayang Lucilla (on LJ)
Couple: Bonnie/Clyde
Summary: Perish the universe provided I have my revenge. - Savinien Cyrano de Bergerac
Heaven has no wrath like grief to rancor turned, nor hell a fury like a parent anguished.
In 2010, Britain is rocked by the unsolved disappearance of a little girl, daughter to Hermione Granger and Draco Malfoy.
In 2011, America is rattled by a series of scattered and strange crimes, cold cases before the corpses even cooled.
A story of Draco and Hermione on a journey of vendetta, and a journey back to each other.

Different Names For The Same Place (No word count given. Likely 100,000+) | Mature | by [livejournal.com profile] namelessamelie
Couple: Rhett/Scarlett
Summary: Sometimes, the wind blows us places we’ve never dreamed.
Notes: Devastating and fantastic.
